Welcome To St. Francis Xavier Girl’s High School Website:

The congregation of Sisters of St Joseph Of Tarbes was founded in the year of 1843 in France, by six young girls who had a special experience of God, urging them to live together a life of contemplation. Thus living in communion, they became sensitive to the needs of the people around, and responded enthusiastically to their call to educate children, care for the sick, and to undertake many other forms of service according to the needs of the people around them.

Today’s Bible Verse

School Song

O lift your loyal voices In schoolroom, hall and field. And let your hearts re-echo loud The song of Xavier’s shield. The cross and victory call us, With faith in God above, To dedicate our lives anew, To service, truth and love. Led on by faith and courage, We fight the goodly fight.To do our best beneath our crest,To keep our honour bright.

  • Memories of my school days would always remain close to my heart. Must say we had the best teachers during our time and they will forever remain Nostalgic. One precious picture is herewith attached (I am the third one standing after our Coach Elvira Britto). One can never forget our brilliant Miss Doreen Suares, our PT Instructress. SFX have groomed us into fine young women.

  • What I learnt at SFX- To be a leader as well as a member of a team’ To be competitive but not cut throat, To be sporting and gracious, both on and off the job. To play the game of life for the sheer love of it.

    Jacqueline ColacoHead Girl, batch of 1964
  • Our SFX school life in a nutshell? Well they were the best years of my childhood. The teachers we had were wonderful and lived up to the age old belief that they take the place of parents at school. I must add that the fact that we girls have kept up our friendship from the age of eight till now at sixty five, speaks volumes for our school atmosphere and the strong bonds that were cemented. Mention must be made that several SFX girls have been very successful in life. Three cheers to our dear St. Francis Xavier Girls’ High School Forever!!
