Work @ Xavier

We are a welcoming home for students and their families ... and also staff.

Our teaching philosophy follows the Salesian Charter and the ‘Preventive System’ of education developed by St John Bosco. It is built upon good, positive, unique relationships where an educator journeys with their students in order to be their guide and friend.

We would encourage you to consider joining us at Xavier, to enjoy the facilities and the wonderful opportunities to work with some great students and staff.
