St Francis Xavier’s is a Catholic systemic primary school within the Archdiocese of Sydney. We are a school where every decision is made according to what is best for student learning. We are a small, vibrant community where every staff member knows every child and takes responsibility for each child's progress. Contact us and ask to make an appointment to have our student leaders take you around our classrooms, learning spaces and whole school for a tour. You will find happy, engaged students who are engrossed in a contemporary pedagogy designed to form them into highly competent, independent thinkers with a thirst for learning.
Our school is situated in the suburb of Arncliffe which is 10 kilometres from the Central Business District of Sydney. Saint Francis Xavier's is a co-educational single stream school catering to the needs of approximately 160 students. Our student population comes from a variety of ethnic backgrounds.
The leaders of our school community are the Parish Priest, Father Brendan Quirk and the Principal, Mr Kevin Bryson who is supported by the Assistant Principal Ms Marisa Casaceli, Religious Education Coordinator Mrs Faye Reardon and Curriculum Coordinator Mrs Jessica Abramov. Father Brendan takes a great interest in our school and is supportive of both families and teachers. The teaching staff includes seven classroom teachers as well as part-time teachers and learning support officers who enrich the classroom program. Our staff have high expectations for student learning and work collaboratively to design teaching programs to challenge our students towards high achievement. We work together in a safe and orderly environment to educate students to be strong, independent learners who will leave our school fully ready for the challenges of high school and beyond.
Parents are actively involved in the life of the school and express their support of the students and staff members in a variety of ways. The teachers work as a team to provide a well balanced curriculum which meets the needs of students, and the requirements of The Sydney Catholic Schools Office and the Board of Studies. As a school community, we work together to build a happy and safe learning environment for all.
