Several parents as well as school authorities had frequently expressed a desire to form an association. On July 13th 1965, the parents, teachers and guardians welcomed the proposal . A committee was appointed to form the constitution. The constitution drafted was presented at the general body meeting that was held on August 26th 1965. The draft was accepted and thus, the P.T.A. of St. Francis Xavier High School was born. An executive committee comprising of 12 parents and 6 teachers was elected. The association has since come a long way in creating a school community working for the betterment of the students entrusted to their care.
