School Song

​Let Your Light Shine

Lord you shared your love when you created all

Help us to respond in love to your call

You sent your Son to show us how to be like you

And use our talents like you want us to


You say to us

Let your light shine

Let your love grow

Be strong for all to see

Be the one whom I intended

Use all the gifts you have from me


At St. Francis Xavier school together we grow strong

We shine our light clear and bright to everyone

It doesn’t matter who we are or where we’re from

With Jesus in our hearts we know we can’t go wrong

Our original School Song had one verse and chorus with the melody and lyrics composed by a member of the 1988 staff, Miss Jo Keates.  Mrs Maureen Laidler added the second verse in 2006 and the song was professionally produced that same year. A competition for the cover to the School Song CD was designed by a student of the time, Nicholas Weber.
