Our thumb is one of our most important fingers because our other fingers cannot do much without it. In the same way, our Conscience, Competence, Culture, Community and Compassion will not make much of a difference if we do not have self-discipline and self-mastery (Character).
Just as we use our index finger for pointing, our faith and values provide the direction in our life. It also reminds us that we can “find God in all things” because he can be found at our fingertip.
Welcome to Xavier School!
We look forward to a fruitful and harmonious collaboration with you this school year. A healthy partnership between the home and the school is very important in the total formation of every student.
We all have unique, God-given gifts and talents. If we discover and develop them, we will stand out among our peers just as our middle finger stands out among our fingers.
Core Values of Xavier School
MrS. Nereyda c. Garcia
EED Team Leader
Just as we usually wear our ring on this finger, our creativity and culture are treasures we should learn to value.
This smallest of our fingers reminds us of the little people in our lives, as well as the poor and marginalized in society-- all of them we should learn to care for.
MS. Ma. aNuNciacioN M. BoNa
Assistant Principal for Unit
Just as our hand is most useful when we can make all our fingers work together despite their different sizes and shapes, we are most effective when we know how to work with different kinds of people.
Fr. JohNNy c. Go, SJ

A Fetching card will be issued to every nursery student for security reasons. All parents, guardians, yayas and drivers are required to present this card to the guard-on-duty (gate 6) upon entrance and exit of the school premises.

Any loss or change in the information on the Fetcher’s card should be reported immediately to the office of Disciplinary Services in the grade School (gS-odS).

most of the school materials are given when you purchase them upon enrolment. Please refrain from labeling them until specific instructions are given to you on the first day of school during the open house. This is to ensure uniformity in the manner of labeling the folders, hSCn and books of your sons.
The hairstyle of students should be neat and short. your son’s hair should not touch the ears, the eyebrows or the collar of the shirt.
During the months of June and July, the School Canteen will serve snacks to ALL nursery students. This is for the following reasons: • to establish routines in proper eating habits • to integrate formation and discipline among students • to give the students a chance to try out the variety of snacks offered in school. After the month of July, you will be given the option either to continue to avail of the snacks served by the School Canteen or to let your son bring his own baon. For health reasons and to instill good eating habits, please take note that carbonated drinks, candies and other junk food are noT ALLoWED. We will send you a circular to this effect in due time. Any change in the snacks reservation should be coursed directly to the Canteen personnel. Please note that snacks will not be served to the nursery students on the first day of class since it’s only orientation day.
