What do educators need to consider to prepare students to be positive contributors to society and the workforce in 2030? What role models do young people really need? What does learning need to look like? What do students really need to know, value, believe and do?

These questions and others will be put to the panel at the Q & A event on Tuesday 7 April 2015 at 7.30pm at St Francis Xavier College.

The panel will consist of:

Moira Najdecki (Director of Catholic Education, Archdiocese of Canberra & Goulburn), Reverend Father Warrick Tonkin (Parish Priest of St Monica’s Evatt St Michael’s Kaleen and SFX Chaplain), Peter Lawrence (Chief Information Officer, Department of Defence), Natalie Sambhi (Analyst, Australian Strategic Policy Institute), Geoff Riordan (Dean of Education, University of Canberra), and Matthew Heinrich (SFX ex-student, Coordinator of ICT Innovation P to 6 at Radford College).

St Francis Xavier College Board Chair Andrew Bewick will facilitate this hour-long event. The evening is open to anyone who is interested in education: educators, students, parents and the general community. Light refreshments will be served.

For more information and to register your interest please email the College at school.office@sfx.act.edu.au



C4 hit the right notes!

Throughout Wednesday 11 March and Thursday 12 March over 170 students from 6 Catholic Colleges gathered to rehearse for C4 2015 - the Combined Catholic Colleges Concert. Students from St Francis Xavier, Merici, Marist, St Edmund’s, Daramalan and St Clare’s gave three outstanding performances to an audience of over 250 parents and friends.C4 Hit the Right Notes!

It was superbly organised by Festival Director & Jazz Ensemble Conductor Kevin Knapp, the Music and Band teacher at SFX. C4 was Kevin’s initiative three years ago and from small beginnings C4 continues to grow, and improves each year. Catholic Education supported this event, and this year it was part of Catholic Schools Week.

We held a liturgy to mark the beginning of Lent. Ash Wednesday is a Catholic ritual of placing ashes on people's foreheads as a symbol of our mortality and repentance to God. One of the inspirational quotes came from Mother Teresa:

"I used to believe that prayer changes things, but now I know that prayer changes us,
and we change things"

Welcome back, and a special welcome to all our new students and families. Please find Term Dates and a 2015 Calendar under the Parents tab.
