“To interface with students globally on a single platform and give back to our Alma Mater what it rightly deserves.”
The former student association (FSA) with great joy was received on 31st march 1989 on the auspicious occasion of its centenary celebration. The association have new celebrated its 26 years. The year 1989 was a memorable year when the school celebrated its 100 years. (1889 – 1989)
In the centenary year of our alma mater the enthusiasm of about hundred former students gave rise to the birth of the former student association, previously known as the old girls association. This association existed from the time to time but there are no known dates or details of when and how it existed or exited. Since then more xavierites have enrolled themselves and the association has grown in leaps and bounds in the last 26 years. Association helps former students form links with the school and renuniance occasionally al that they had done during the years spent there.
The former student association has organized various activities time to time. Namely ‘Xavierite 90’ ‘Christmas Promenade’ on two occasions 2008 and 2010. To add to the festivities of the Christmas season ‘Carol Singing by Candle Light’ is a delightful experience, the concert of the century a new sieal over the rainbow directed by Kevin Oliver also a past student and Sen of our music teacher Ms Yvonne oliver.

The association with the funds at its disposal contributes towards scholarships for deserving or needy children. The funds have been bifurcated to assist past teachers (retired) in the teachers welfare fund and the student scholarship fund. Prizes in the form of incentives have been awarded to meritorious students and athletics. The association has donated shields/ cups for the sports day.
