Xavier House

Xavier House 

A prayer of St Francis Xavier 

Dear Lord, 

Inspired by the example of St. Francis, we pray to you for the courage to be missionaries, reaching out and leading others to Jesus. Like St. Francis, may we help those in need and may we lead a life rooted in prayer.   Amen  

At St Columba’s, we have our own very own House system, where you will compete for points every day as part of our whole school competition. When you join St Columba’s, you will be put in one of six different houses, where you will wear your coloured house tie with pride. Regular interhouse competitions and Sports Day will also give you the opportunity to compete for house points. Our houses are named after famous Saints (Becket, Campion, Fisher, Loyola, More, Xavier).

House points are awarded for many aspects of school life, for example:

  • Attendance
  • Punctuality
  • Personal Conduct
  • Attitude to Learning
  • Homework
  • Contribution to the Community
