Inter Junior School Football Tournament
1. In the month of July 2012, The "Blue 'n' White" Inter
Junior School Football Tournament was held at St. Xavier's
Primary School grounds as it celebrated its 11th year. This
year saw eight renowned schools participating in a league -
cum - knock out tournament. The finals were played between
St. Thomas School (Kidderpore) and St. Xavier's Collegiate
School with St. Thomas School emerging as winners. Both
teams were awarded with trophies and certificates.
2. The academic year 2012-2013 saw the birth of "Nature
Club" in the Primary Section of our school. The aim of the
Nature Club is to create an awareness and love for all
living creatures, a concern for the environment and to
promote in them a sense of global solidarity and commitment
to save the earth in keeping with the Jesuit motto "creating
people for others."
We began our Nature Club activities with a special Assembly
on - "Earth Day." The Nature Club organized a few exciting
and engaging activities for the boys to participate and be
part of Nature Conservation.
a) Forest Week Project:
Classes III, IV and V presented a
colorful and informative "exhibition" on birds, animals and
vegetation found in the various forests, deserts and in the
seas and oceans of the world. Posters made by the boys were
put up in different corners of the school camps, which
portrayed messages like - "Grow more Trees" and "Conserve
b) Awareness Campaign:
An awareness campaign on the need to keep the environment
clean was also conducted along with a campaign to promote
the value of planting trees. As part of the campaign, the
Nature Club members dressed up as popular Cartoon characters
such as Mickey, Mini and Pluto and they visited all the
classes. They carried placards with messages - "Throw the
rubbish in the bin"; "keep your classroom clean"; "keep your
school corridors clean". The children were very excited to
see the cartoon characters and responded well to the
Drawing and Colouring Competition
c) Classes Prep and I participated in a colouring
competition called "Colours of Nature"; and Class II
participated in a drawing contest called "The Beautiful
Nature around us".
d) Special Assemblies were organized in English and the
vernaculars on topics such as cleanliness, pollution, and
the importance of going green.
Special Diwali Message
e) The students were encouraged to avoid sound and air
pollution during Diwali through posters, charts and
Our Nature Club members are called the "Green Soldiers" who
firmly believe in the motto - "To keep nature fit, we must
do our bit".
We, at St. Xavier's Collegiate School (Primary Section),
Kolkata, in our own small way encourage the students to
think and feel for the people around them. We have a group
of eight responsible students to help out in the various
activities of the Social Service Action Group.
In the year 2012 - 13, the boys have generously participated
in the following Social Service Programmes by lending a
helping hand towards the following institutions:
 Collection of Maggi packets for Asha Niketan.
 Collection of Colours and old exercise books for 'VANI'
an NGO educating Deaf & Dumb children.
 Collection of Money for 'Netaji Eye Hospital' at Purulia.
 Collection of warm and woolen clothes for Sharehouse
 Collection of gifts for a carnival organized by the
'Little Sisters of the Poor'.
Our attempt in helping our less fortunate brothers and
sisters, have really been a learning experience for the
young hearts & minds of the Primary Section.
