St Francis Xavier's Primary School, Belmont, embraces the dynamic nature of education by providing quality learning programs in a challenging environment that caters for and respects the unique needs of each student.
St Francis Xavier’s has a deep commitment to supporting the community through raising money or collecting goods for the St Vincent de Paul Society, supporting the work of Caritas and other local charity organisations, while also participating in the local Anzac Day March and allowing senior students to regularly visit local preschools for 'Simultaneous Storytime'.
As well as a strong academic program, the school provides a breadth and depth of experiences in art, drama, music and sport. The school offers a range of sports both within the school and across region, diocesan and inter-diocesan level. Students have the opportunity to compete at representative levels in areas including swimming, cross country, athletics, netball, tennis, soccer, rugby league, rugby union and touch football. Students in Years 3 to 6 have the opportunity to participate in the local Macquarie Soccer and Netball competitions during Terms 3 and 4, as well as gymnastics during Term 1.
As one of three primary schools in East Lake Macquarie, St Francis Xavier's learning programs are created to develop students academically, intellectually, aesthetically, emotionally, socially and spiritually. The school’s contemporary learning approach aims to empower students with the knowledge, skills and capacities to respond creatively to the challenges of the world.
