STEM Activity – Next Stop is Mars

As part of our ongoing effort to promote STEM education, the STEM Education Committee put together an interesting seminar, titled “Next Stop is Mars”, for all F.1 students on 23rd January 2019. We invited Dr. Leung, lecturer of Astrophysics from the Chinese University, to give us a talk on the space missions to Mars. The event was a huge success with very positive feedback from students. We will continue to do our best to offer our students more exposure in the STEM fields.

F.6 Last Day for Class 2019

On the 18th January 2019, our F.6 boys of the Class 2018 had their last day of lesson in school. Following our decade old tradition, the F.6 boys put together a farewell ceremony to say goodbye to their teachers, younger Xavieran brothers and their alma mater. With their class teachers, they formed a giant human clock to represent the exact time of the last school bell for them signalling the end of their secondary school life. After this day, they are on their journey of final preparation for the HKDSE. Good luck, boys of Class 2019. Fight on with that Xaverian spirit!

SFXC Home-coming Concert 2018

On 29th December, 2018 (Saturday), over 500 alumni, guests, parents and students gathered at the school hall and had a warm and wonderful winter night enjoying the home-coming concert organised by the Alumni Association. It has almost been a decade since the last home-coming concert staged in 2009. Xaverians from a wide range of graduating years as early as the 60s were invited back to the stage and bring the audience band songs, pops, fun and joy.

Christmas Overnight Party 2018-2019

The yearly Christmas overnight party was held from the 24th evening to the morning of 25th of December. It began with the talk and sharing by Br. John on the meaning of Christmas and some facts and story of the Star of Bethlehem by the Chair person of the school Astronomy Club. The Catholic students were invited and encouraged to do confession in order to prepare their spirits and minds to welcome Christ during the Christmas Eve Mass.

At around 11:30 p.m., after the Mass, the water balloon fight began. All participants enjoyed the exciting game. It was followed by various games at our School hall. At around 2:30 a.m., participants were divided into groups to enjoy the booth games put together by different clubs of the school. At 4 a.m., all the participants enjoyed a BBQ till dawn. The event ended with the Morning Prayer and the three cheers at 7a.m. It was surely a memorable experience for all our junior boys.
