Family@XIC - Parents Association

Family@ Art Festival 2024

The art department at XIC, in collaboration with Family@, will be organising an art competition and over the weekend of 17th-19th May, selected pieces of XIC pupils’ artwork will be exhibited alongside local artist’s work at DAR Community Club. Additionally, pupils artwork will be displayed at all three schools sites over the weeks following the exhibition at DAR.

All pupils are invited to participate in the competition. Submitted artwork will be featured in an online gallery, allowing parents and pupils to vote for their favourite pieces. Our expert panel of judges will then select the following winners:

Infants – Gold, Silver, Bronze prizes.
Juniors – Gold, Silver, Bronze prizes.
Secondary – Gold, Silver, Bronze prizes

Start creating now!

We want to provide pupils with ample time to prepare for this year’s competition. The deadline for artwork submissions is Monday 6th May, but we encourage you to start getting creative now. Perhaps this can be a fun project for the upcoming half term or Easter holidays?

Competition details and how to submit artwork:

Theme: Summer.
Size: 40×60 cm canvas.
Name: To avoid any confusion, please ensure that the pupil’s full name and class are clearly written on the back of the artwork (e.g. Sarah Williams, Year 1)
Format/Media: Artwork must be submitted on a 40x60cm canvas, however pieces can be created on paper or other materials before being mounted on canvas. Paintings, collages, photography etc, are all accepted.
Deadline: Artwork should be submitted on or before Monday May 6th. Please drop off artwork at each school site for the Family@ team to collect (*Please note that any entries that do not meet the specified requirements unfortunately cannot be entered for judging)

The Family@ Art Festival is a wonderful opportunity to encourage and develop artistic talent throughout XIC. In addition to the exhibition itself, we will also be organising workshops in school and at the exhibition led by local artists.

We’re so excited to see the creative works that the pupils will showcase this year, especially after witnessing the artwork produced last year.

Join Family@


Family@ is our parents, staff and children’s association in XIC. What you would expect from a traditional Parents’ Association – but involving everyone in the XIC family.

It’s the space where we organise social, sporting and creative events, as well as providing excellent networking and engagement opportunities for all of us in the school community.

“We’re excited about the opportunity to develop an association that brings parents, staff and children together and offers an opportunity for all of us to get involved, and enjoy, school life outside of the classroom. Whilst at the same time we will be able to provide some of those very special extras for our children in XIC as well as helping other children outside of XIC get a better start at life (via the Make a Smile charity) – makes it all the more meaningful as well”.


Events we are looking to invite our community to participate in are:
International Day
Christmas Fair
Coffee Mornings
Seasonal Socials
Parent Quiz

If you have an idea for an event? Email us at Family@xabiainternationalcollege.com

Connect with other parents

We have WhatsApp groups for each academic year, providing a platform for parents to connect with one another. These groups serve as a means to foster camaraderie among parents, exchange valuable information and offer advice with regards to school and raising children within the Javea community. While there are no strict guidelines for these groups, it is expected that members are kind, respectful and utilize them for their intended purpose.
Does your year group seem quiet? Some years are chattier or have more activity than others, why not jump in on yours and get things going?
To join, kindly send an email to family@xabiainternationalcollege and request the QR code specific to your year group. Simply scan the code with your phone and seamlessly add yourself to the group.

Link with charity

This year we will also donating a percentage of any funds raised to Make a Smile, an amazing local charity which raises funds to help feed, clothe, equip and educate disadvantaged children and children in care. You can find out more about them by visiting: www.makeasmile.es

Got a fundraising idea? Email us!

Please do get involved!

If you want to get involved in helping to organise XIC Family activity? We’re always looking for volunteers to join our committee and help come up with ideas for events and deliver them.

We meet up as a committee a few times a term for coffee and brainstorming so it’s another nice chance to meet up with other parents.

Email: Family@xabiainternationalcollege.com if you’re interested in joining us.
