Religious Studies
"Give something, however small, to the one in need. For it is not small to one who has nothing. Neither is it small to God, if we have given what we could." 
St. Gregory Nazianzen

At St.Francis Xavier students take at least one "religion" course a year, for example World Religions in Grade 11 in which students learn about a variety of faiths, or Philosophy in Grade 12 in which students delve into philosophical questions while learning about some of the greatest philosophers such as Socrates and Plato.
