Phase II of Fund Raising Campaign to Revitalize the Brothers’ Quarters

Dear Alumni & Parents,

Phase II of Fund Raising Campaign to Revitalize the Brothers’ Quarters

During the celebration of jubilees of both schools a few years back, alumni and the Principals of both schools voiced their concern about the poor living conditions of the Brothers. Thanks to the donations collected in the previous years, Phase I of the revitalization project has been completed, including renovation of four residence rooms for the Brothers on 3/F, SFXC and completion of the Heritage Gallery on 4/F, SFXC. The rooms have been dormitories for exchange students from other Marist Schools, and the Gallery displays important historical documents of the Marist Brothers and the school.

To complete the 12 remaining residence rooms for the Brothers, Phase II of the fund-raising campaign was officially kicked off at the Home-coming Concert on 29 December, 2018 (Saturday). Based on the experience of Phase I, it costs around $150,000 to $200,000 to renovate one room.

The school would like to appeal to all Alumni for their generous donation. Receipts will be issued for tax exemption purposes. As a token of gratitude, the following souvenirs will be presented. Donation of $5,000 A commemorative watch Donation of $10,000 or above A commemorative music box

The revitalized residence will not only provide our Brothers a better living condition, but also make it possible for organizing different alumni activities, functions, meetings and exchange programmes with other Marist Schools. Please kindly support this meaningful project!

Professional Visit by Shanghai Beihong Senior High School

On the11th June 2019, we welcomed the visiting teachers and staff from our sister school in Shanghai, the Beihong Senior High School, which was once also a Marist school. We took our guests on a campus tour and had a professional group sharing session with them. We hope that this kind of regular exchanges between the two schools will continue to strengthen our bond and broaden the horizon of teachers and students from both schools.

Homecoming Visit of Class 1979 Alumni

On 8th June 2019, around 30 of our alumni from the Class 1979 came back to visit their alma mater. This year was also the 40th anniversary of their graduation from SFXC. On this special day, they were given a campus tour to reminisce their fond memory of the old secondary school life. They also became students once again to sit in a classroom to learn about the history and recent development of the school. The event was a sweet reunion of brotherhood, friendship and love.

Dear old boys of Class 1979, you are forever Xaverians and the alma mater will always welcome you with outstretched arms.

Champagnat Day 2018-2019

As a tradition for a Marist School, we celebrated the Champagnat Day on 6th June 2019. We had a holy mass to commemorate St. Marcellin Champagnat, the founder of the Marist Brothers.

After the mass, students were free to engage in a host of activities prepared for them, including e-Sports, movie appreciation, teacher-student sports competition and more. There was no shortage of fun for our students to enjoy the last school day before the final examination.
