FROM THE 2016 CAPTAIN

“We are very fortunate men here at Xavier and we receive an education that many others are not able to receive, and we should not for a fleeting instant take this for granted. There are many people who would love the opportunity to attend Xavier but are not able to do so due to their financial circumstances. This year, we are excited that our lasting legacy to the school is the ‘Class of 2016 Bursary’, where we can give a deserving student the opportunity to attend Xavier College in Years 11 & 12."

MARK BURGESS 2016 School Captain

CLASS OF 2016 BURSARY

Students at Xavier believe they are at this school to be Men for Others. As the Jesuit ethos goes ‘To give and not to count the cost.’ The Class of 2016 could not think of any greater legacy to leave with the school than to give the opportunity for students to attend Xavier who otherwise may never have had the opportunity.

ABOUT THIS PROJECT


Every year, it is customary that each year 12 cohort attempts to raise funds to leave a parting gift for the College.


The Class of 2016 decided on something very different. For the first time the Class of 2016, a student led initiative, wanted to go above and beyond and raise funds for a full VCE Bursary for a new student who otherwise may not be able to afford education at Xavier College in Years 11 and 12.

To raise $60,000 to fund the inaugural bursary to be awarded to a boy commencing Year 11 in 2017. Additional funds will be invested to fund ongoing bursary donations in the Class of 2016 name.
Gifts can be made to the Xavier College Foundation Class of 2016 Bursary, via online payment, cheque, credit card or electronic payment or by contacting the Foundation office directly.
