School Community

Education Board

The Education Board is an integral part of the Leadership and Coordination model at St Francis Xavier Primary School in Box Hill.  The Board brings together the Parish Priest, Principal, Deputy Principal, parents and a teacher representative. It operates as an agent of the Church and strives to embody gospel values and traditions in its continuing service to the parish and to the parents, teachers and students within the school community.

The Board believes that serving on a School Board is a form of lay ministry.  That is, serving on a School Board s not a position of power but a position of service to the school community in the interests of all students.

Through strengthening the role of the Board in partnership with the Parish Priest, Principal and staff, the Board is committed to serving the community to ensure high quality educational experiences and outcomes for all students attending St Francis Xavier.
