Project Compassion


Each year, the College supports Caritas Australia’s work both here in Australia and overseas by raising funds for their annual Project Compassion campaign during the Season of Lent.

We would like to thank all members of the Xavier College community for their continued support of the work of Caritas.

This year, as a community we were able to raise $10,153.65 across both Campuses to help Caritas’ vital work.

One student made a special effort to help our fundraising efforts. During the holidays, Loulu set up her own apple juice stand to continue to raise money for Project Compassion. We're assured that Loulu's apple juice was perfectly delicious, and we are very impressed by her generosity.

Once again, we would like to thank everyone for supporting this vital work of Caritas Australia.

Two Wells Students' Equestrian Success


Two of our students, Nyah and Pypah recently competed in the Equestrian SA Nationals and have had great success in Sydney. Nyah rode beyond her years to win the Child’s Medium Hunter Pony Class making her a National Champion, and also placed third in the Open Class. Pypah performed beautifully in the Leading Rein, achieving third place. They have also just finished a successful competition at Ego Sunsense Australasian Show, are at currently competing in Sydney at the Southern Cross Show Horse Spectacular, before heading onto Grand Nationals next week. We very proud of their dedication and achievements, and look forward to watching their journey in the future.

Two Wells Campus Stage 2 Development


It has been an exciting and busy start to the year with not only a population growth on Campus, but also a lot of building and construction happening. Some of the more noticeable and exciting developments have been the establishment of the soccer pitch, the transportable teaching block, and the progress of Stage 2 of the building. The new slab has been poured, and the steel frame has started to go up.

We were thrilled to finally open the green and lush soccer pitch to students during Week 6.

It is most certainly a hive of activity, and one that promises an exciting year ahead.

Gawler Belt Campus Music News


The Gawler Fringe was a fantastic opportunity for some of our music students to perform in their ensembles. Jess Hall and Bethany Johnson performed a set of acoustic ballads to an enthusiastic audience.

Layne Bailey performed with a local band called the Moo Crew, made up of many Xavier College Old Scholars. They performed some crowd favorites and some technically demanding music such as 'Carry On Wayward Son' by Kansas.

Two Wells Campus RSL Painting Donation


On Friday February 11 the Two Wells RSL attended the Two Wells Campus to donate a painting of poppies to the school. The painting has been hanging in the RSL clubrooms, however, unfortunately the club has had to close their doors.

We greatly appreciate the generosity of the RSL and their contribution to our College community. We look forward to finding the best place to display this legacy of the Two Wells RSL in our school.

From the Principal


As the third term comes to an end, I would like to thank all staff and students for their efforts over the term and wish everyone a safe and enjoyable break.

Year 12 Term 4
As we are aware, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted and continues to impact the way we carry out our daily lives. We have endeavoured, where possible to give our Year 12 students as many of the ‘normal’ experiences as possible within the confines of the State Government and CESA Health restrictions and guidelines around the pandemic.

As we head into the end of a very busy term, we are delighted to see the huge progress made on site.

The pace of work is frenetic, with over 10,000 hours worked on site in the last month; the average number of workers on site being nearly 60, and at its peak 73 workers in one day. It is amazing to see the changes being made each day, and seeing the dream become a reality. Images do not do the progress justice – the internals are also coming along at a cracking pace.
