Student Exchange 2012

Student Activities - India-China Student Exchange

Third Student Exchange Programme with Shida Fuzhong (Affiliated High School of Yunnan Normal University), Kunming, China 2012

To strengthen Indo-China bilateral ties, leaders of both nations - President Hu Jingtao and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh met and declared year 2012, a year of Indo-China friendship and cooperation. Both leaders have unveiled initiatives to boost cooperation and mutual understanding. St. Xavier's Collegiate School, Kolkata, India and Shida Fuzhong High School, Kunming China have also contributed in strengthening and cementing this bond of friendship between the two countries.

Seventeenth November, two thousand and twelve at eleven forty twelve Chinese delegates disembarked from flight China Eastern in their maiden visit to India. A small step for man but a huge step for mankind! The Xaverian students under the able leadership of Fr.Peter Arockiam s.j, Vice Principal, Mr.Farino Torcato and Mr.Siddhartha Das waited eagerly to welcome their Chinese brothers home. Hosting the Chinese students in the houses of the Indian students was an integral part of the student exchange programme between Shida Fuzhong School, Kunming, China and St. Xavier's Collegiate School, Kolkata, India. The Chinese delegates were led by Mr. Yang Yong, the vice principal, Mr.Li Yue, Ms Shu Hong and Ms Shi Rui, teachers of the school.

These Chinese students stayed in the houses of the St. Xavier's students for a period of 10 days and had a first hand experience of Indian Culture. The great benchmark of this exchange programme is how the Xaverians created a home far away from home for their Chinese brothers.

To quote Li Yutang "A strong determination is to get the best out of life, a keen desire is to enjoy what one has, and no regrets if anyone fails." This is the secret of the Chinese genius to contentment.

Mr.Farino Torcato Teacher, S.X.C.S
