APX: 25 Years of Excellence
The Association of Past Xavierites (APX) of St Xavier’s High School Loyola Hall has completed 25 years. Many programs are planned to celebrate the occasion. A “Jayakar Bhojak” Musical Evening was hosted on the school grounds. Almost 1200 people were enthralled by this famous singer who rendered Gujarati
songs and Bollywood hits. Also, songs rendered by school students and teachers as well as a masterpiece by APX members, kept the audience regaled.
The 16 founding members of the APX were gratefully remembered for their lasting contributions. The Provincial, Fr Jose Changanacherry, and the Home Secretary Shri Manoj Antani IPS, an alumnus, were the Chief Guests at the function. Also present were many prominent personalities of the city, most of them being the alumni of St Xavier’s school. The founding Chairman of APX and the then Principal Fr Ornellas Coutinho was honoured and his presence was inspiring to all present. Fr Durai (Principal and Chairman of APX, and Province Coordinator for Alumni Association), and Fr M G Raj (Administrator) were
appreciated for their support, owing to which APX has flourished and is reaching out to more people and avenues. The current committee members are also giving their best and their efforts are also instrumental in getting APX to where it is today. (Mr Shapat)
