The start of the 2023 School year has marked an exciting milestone in the history of Xavier College, with the opening of its Evanston campus.
The amalgamation of what was formerly St Brigid's Catholic School with Xavier College has resulted in the northern suburbs school now comprising of two Reception to Year 12 Campuses across three sites - they are:
We are Xavier College
We are a Catholic co-educational Reception to Year 12 College. The Gawler Campus Year 7 to Year 12 is located north of Adelaide, just outside the regional town of Gawler, the gateway to the Barossa Valley. The Two Wells Campus offers Reception through to Year 6 and is located in the Liberty development in the northwest corner of Two Wells, 24km from Gawler.
It gives me great pleasure to introduce you to our community.
The College was opened in 1995 in the tradition of the Salesian Order. The Salesians are a Congregation of the Catholic Church that have been involved in teaching and youth work in every part of the world for over 150 years and pass on to the College their ethos and rich tradition in the education of young people. In keeping with this tradition we are inspired by the example of St John Bosco and strive to be a community committed to the holistic development of each student in an atmosphere of reasonableness and kindness.
We use the Hebrew word RUAH, which means ‘Spirit of God’, as an acronym to express the core values of the College: Respect, Understanding, Affection and Humour. These values shape a learning environment which is relational and joyfully celebrates the unique gifts and talents of every student.
It is a community of faith that encourages every student to enhance their understanding of the world in which they live, seek to meaningfully contribute to the betterment of society and simply be the best person they can be.
