Student Exchange Program with Shanghai Beihong Senior High School

On the 2nd of November, we welcomed visiting teachers and students from the Shanghai Beihong Senior High School, which was once the St. Francis Xavier’s College in Shanghai. We started a Student Exchange Program with Beihong this year to broaden students’ horizon and to build solidarity with our once brother school in Shanghai. Students from Beihong will join our lessons and Athletic Meet to experience the vibrant Hong Kong secondary school life in SFXC. In return, we will send students to Beihong to experience school life over there later in the year.

Let us welcome our guests and show them the spirit and hospitality of a Marist school.

Bruce Lee Book Introduction

It is well-known to Xaverians that Bruce Lee was our alumnus. On the 25th of October 2017, a few alumni visited us. They brought with them a new book written by Mr. Fung Ying Biu, another alumnus who graduated in 1974, and contemporary of Bruce Lee, to be dedicated to the school. In his book, Mr. Fung did some extensive research on Bruce Lee and showed us a side of the Kungfu Super Star that is rarely known to the world. On 31st October, the book was officially introduced by Principal Iu to all students and added to our library collection. Students are welcome to borrow it and have a glance at the legendary past of one of our most famous alumni.
