Fundraising for the Covered Playground


Since the establishment of St. Francis Xavier’s College at 45 Sycamore Street, there has been a number of landmark renovation projects, including the extension work of the East Wing in 1968, construction of the West Wing in 1984, installation of air conditioners in all classrooms in 1992 and the School Hall in 1996, completion of the Jubilee Wing in 2005, to name but a few.


As one of the important milestones to mark the 65th Anniversary of the school, we have planned to refurbish the covered playground, turning it to a multi-purpose activity area for students, teachers, parents and alumni.


We are excited to announce that the renovation is in good progress – new tiles have been paved, laminated glasses and new metal wires have been installed. And we are now appealing for sponsorships to complete the rest of the renovation work, including installation of false ceiling, air-conditioning, LED wall, upgrading tuck shop facilities as well as other miscellaneous items. The total budget is estimated to be around 3 million dollars.


To make the above vision come true, your financial assistance is highly appreciated. Donations can be sent by post with a cheque payable to ‘The IMC of St. Francis Xavier’s College – A/C No. 2’ together a completed donation form. Any donations of more than $100 will receive a receipt for tax exemption purposes.

F.1 Admission Information Day 2020-2021

About 600 parents and pupils from primary schools gathered at the Champagnat Hall last Saturday, 14 November 2020, to attend the three sessions of our first Information Day.

 

 The programme began with a seminar introducing our school and the F1 enrollment procedure, followed by videos featuring the school wind band and interviews with the SFXC students and alumni about Marist education. Each session was concluded by students’ performances. The guests enjoyed the performances and were keen to know more about our school.

 

 To accommodate the overwhelming response, we will organize another round of Information Day this coming Saturday on 21st November, offering two more seminar sessions. We would like to thank all the students, teachers, parents and alumni who gave their best to make this Information Day a resounding success.

F.2 Parents Gathering 2020-2021

The F.2 Parents Gathering for 2020-2021 school year was recently held on the 7th November.  102 parents in total attended our seminar that introduced our school’s curriculum, promotion criteria and discipline policies. We also invited our school-based social workers to give a talk for our parents. After the seminar, parents had the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with their sons’ Form Teachers. The gathering had become a meaningful and fruitful event thanks to our parents’ active participation.

 

F.6 Parents Gathering 2020-2021

The F.6 Parents’ Gathering for 2020-2021 school year was held on 24th October 2020. Around 90 parents attended the gathering in spite of the looming pandemic. The gathering included a seminar introducing the JUPAS scheme, the selection of programme choices and other learning experience. Our School-based Social Worker, Ms. Lui, shared how parents might accompany their sons on the stressful journey of DSE. After the seminar in the hall, the parents went into classrooms to meet and exchange ideas with the form teachers.

Most of the parents found the event informative and helpful.
