The F.6 Parents Gathering for 2016-2017 was held recently on 29th October. 113 parents attended a seminar introducing multiple graduate pathways available, the JUPAS scheme and other learning experience and achievements of our F.6 students. Our School-based Social Worker, Ms. Wong, gave a talk on the topic of accompanying our students on their journey of taking the stressful HKDSE.
After the seminar, parents had the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with all the S.6 Form Teachers. We would like to thank our F.6 parents, whose active participation and hard work in the lives of their sons will surely bear fruits as the boys graduate from secondary school and mature into adulthood.
On 29th of October, around 30 of our graduates from the Class 1976 came back to visit their alma mater. It was the 40th anniversary of their graduation from SFXC. On this special day, they all dressed in tidy school uniform and become students once again to learn the history and development of the school. It was a sweet reunion of brotherhood, friendship and cherishable memories.
Thanks for your visit, old boys. You are forever Xaverians and the alma mater will always welcome you with outstretched arms.
