Last School Day for F.6 students (2016-2017)

6 years of secondary schooling had finally come to an end for all F.6 students on 20 January 2017. To commemorate this memorable day, 2 class representatives from each F.6 class had given a vote of thanks to all their form teachers and subject teachers in the morning assembly. The Graduation Committee this year had also prepared the school a handmade gift – a giant potted four-leaf clover, to symbolize their faith and also the school motto “Gentle in Manner, Resolute in Action”. In addition, when the school bell rung at 15:20, all F.6 students and their form teachers stood at the school playground in the pattern of a four-leaf clover, bidding farewell to their secondary school life one last time by singing along a selection of songs and sharing their gratitude towards their Alma Mater.

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.

JACP Trade Fair 2016

Trade Fair 2016, one of the highlights of the JA Company Programme, took place on Saturday, 17th December 2016, at Chater Garden in Central. The programme aimed at developing creativity and business acumen in students by launching their products or services in a real market.

88 JA companies offered their products/service on that day. Under the guidance of voluntary business advisors, Mr. Paul Ho and Mr. Francis Chan, 31 of our Form 4 and 5 students set up a mini-company, Greenovation. The Greenvation offers carbon credits from CarbonCareAsia for sale, and also an app which includes simple calculators for customers to find out their own carbon emission amount. It will be offset by the credit amount, so as to educate customers to change their lifestyle, and therefore changing the world.

Many alumni visited the Greenovation booth during the Trade Fair, including Mr. Chong Chan Yau and Mr. Chan Chi Wan. Their remarkable comments provided lots of insights to the students. As the Trade Fair was held successfully, students learned valuable experiences which would play a big part in their future aspirations.

Kick-off Ceremony of SFXC Mentorship Scheme 2016

The kick-off ceremony of SFXC Mentorship Scheme was held successfully on 10th December 2016. It started off with an array of activities including certificate presentation and ice-breaking games, which were followed by a gathering time. Over 70 of our senior students taking part in the Mentorship Scheme had the privilege of spending a wonderful evening with their mentors. During the fun ice-breaking games, both mentors and mentees enjoyed very much the great moments in exchanging the pleasant experiences and fond memories they had had in SFXC. The Mentorship is another way for us to pass our unique culture and family spirit to the next generation of Xavierians.
