St Francis Xavier's (formerly St Joseph's)

Primary School Belmont 1950

St Francis Xavier's is a Catholic Primary School    catering to children from Kindergarten to Year 6.

St Francis Xavier's Primary School opened its doors on January 31st 1950, as St Josephs Primary School. Srs M Virgilius and Callista were the first teachers. They lived at the Swansea Convent and travelled to Belmont each day by row boat. When the numbers of sisters increased, a cottage was acquired as a Convent on the Belmont site on January 25th 1951.

In 1996, the name changed from St Joseph's to St Francis Xavier, the name of the Belmont Parish, to reflect the strong link the school has with the church community.

In 1997 a $1.2 million transformation was completed

In 2011 a $800 000 refurbishment was finished.
