Boarding at Xavier
The Xavier Boarding House prides itself on creating a community based on Catholic values, where students and staff forge lasting bonds and where every student experiences a boarding and challenging program in a small Boarding House setting.
At Xavier College we strive to engender a love of learning that will last long after graduation from the College. We do this by providing a caring community within which boys from Years 9 to 12 are encouraged to develop personal leadership skills, to become responsible members of the community, to strive for excellence and to become 'men for others'.
The House is divided into two sections: The Senior House and the Junior House. There is accommodation for 28 boarders in Years 9 and 10 and 48 boarders in Years 11 and 12, making a total of 76 in all. .
Each House is well appointed and has its own common room, kitchen and television room. For after-hours study, the boarders have ready access to the school library, notebooks and the internet. Boarders also have access to all facilities within the Sports Centre. An innovative pastoral program supports these aims. Your son is allocated a tutor who oversees his development in the school. A specifically designed study skills program is offered to every boarder, covering issues such as time management, project planning, speed reading, diary use and examination preparation.
The relatively small size of the Boarding House means students know one another well and can therefore contribute positively to the learning and social development of their fellow boarders.
