1970 Batch DOX Alumni Visit School after 48 Years : Spend a Day w Ten Alumni of the 1970 Batch of St. Xavier's School, Doranda, Ranchi gathered with their wives at their Alma after almost half a century (48 years). They travelled all the way from England, USA, Canada, Delhi and Pune to re-live their childhood.
A special meeting with present teachers, past teachers (who had taught them) and the present students of SXD was organized at the School Auditorium.
Replying to a question from the audience, "what kept you all together and networked for all these years?", they happily recalled and replied : "We were taught to support each-other and to pull-along the weaklings. We did not compete for positions. We progressed on merit and the best one would lead in academics. But sure, we always carried each-other along. Today, we find cut-throat competition even amongst the best-friends".
They fondly remembered the cane-beatings they had received from their then Principal Rev. Fr. Victor Tucker. Immediately after caning, Fr. Tucker used to embrace the child and said that he should never get another opportunity to punish him again !
Principal Fr. Ajit Kumar Xess briefed them about the School's progress, about Vision 2020 and about the new +2 wing coming up at the school.
