A gift of $10,000 has been generously donated to the Xavier College Foundation by Mr John Donovan to establish the Alexander Donovan Proxime Award, in memory of his father, Alexander Donovan.

The Year 12 recipient/s will receive a book and cheque of up to $400. It will be presented at an awards ceremony at the College in the following calender year.
The $10,000 cheque was presented by John Donovan to Tony Bretherton, Executive Director of the Xavier College Foundation (pictured).
