SFXC60 Opening Ceremony

The commencement of St. Francis Xavier’s College’s 60th Anniversary Celebration with the theme ‘In the Way of the Marists’ was held on Saturday, 6th December 2014. We give thanks to God for giving us a luminous and warm weather that day which optimized the effect of the inauguration. The commencement started with a Thanksgiving Mass. All the students and honorable guests respectfully listened to the Gospel and holily sang worship songs. The Opening Ceremony was followed with reflections and thoughts presented by the Brothers, the Principal and honorable guests on the influence of the two Saints and Marist Brothers had in education.

To further spark the mood, a light and cheerful rhythm theme song especially composed for the 60th anniversary was performed by several students. A special feature of the ceremony was arranged towards the end – the time capsule presentation. As a gimmick, Brothers, the Principal and honorable guests placed their mementos into the time capsule which would be reopened in 15 years.

The ceremony joyfully ended with the school song led by Brother Joseph. The three cheers at the end officially marked the launch of celebrative activities prepared for the year ahead!

2nd Gathering of the English Ambassadors

The English Ambassadors met for their second gathering this term to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year; Christmas. The Ambassadors were given a delicious candy cane and gift tag and asked to write a message of goodwill to a friend, relative or teacher! They [the candy canes and gift tags] were then adorned with ribbons and hung on a display board. Finally, the Ambassadors made a unique snowflake to hang around the display of candy canes to create the winter wonderland!

60th Anniversary Lampshade Design Competition

The Lampshade Design Competition was one of the activities for the celebration of the school 60th anniversary.

The following classes were the winners of the Lampshade Design Competition - 1A, 2D, 3D, 4A and 5A. The winning classes were awarded certificates and souvenirs as mementoes of SFXC 60th anniversary.

Information Day

Numerous numbers of primary students and parents came to our Information Day on 22nd November. Two identical sessions in the morning and afternoon were given accompanied with tours directed by our students and teachers. The history and uniqueness of our school were presented to the visitors in the talk given by the principal, Brothers and vice-principal. Parents and students showed great interest in our school as they eagerly asked all kinds of questions. We hope this opportunity allowed them to know more about SFXC and wish them all the best on admitting to their school of preference.
