May the Brothers’ work in the hearts of the young generation continue to bear fruits in the new century.

Marist 200 Basin Feast 2016-2017

As a highlight of the Marist 200 Celebration campaign, the Marist 200 Basin Feast was held in the evening of 2nd January. More than a thousand guests filled up almost a hundred tables in the playground of our school campus. They shared a great meal with their old pals and reminisced good old times their shared as students of the Marist Brothers. It was a joyous and warm moment to be shared in a chilled mid-autumn evening.

Opening of Marist Heritage Gallery

In the occasion of the Marist 200 Institution, the Marist Brothers in HK officially blessed the opening of this Heritage Gallery on the top floor of the SFXC campus. Its opening was the combined effort of many parties. Father Albert Ho, Salesian Priest and our alumni, gave his blessing to this gallery on the opening day on 2nd January 2017. The room contains countless valuable artefacts that speak a volume of Marist History. All are welcome to visit the gallery if you have time.

Christmas Party 2017

The school Christmas Party, also our annual Dress Casual Day, was organized on 22 December 2016. Besides celebrating the festival, we hoped to remind our students what the Marist Brothers have been doing for us in the past 200 years.

A series of celebrations would be organized in 2017 so as to celebrate the bicentennial anniversary of the Marist Brothers. Hence, all Xaverians were encouraged to donate and raise fund for the upcoming bicentennial celebrations and for learning and teaching purposes at school. At the end, the target of donation was well-achieved through different fund raising activities such as teacher-student matches and that over $50,000 was raised.
