The Anand Xavier's Alumni Association was formed in Anand, Gujarat Province , on Sunday 5th March 2017 , amidst a large attendance which included past Jesuit Principals, past PCA Fr Durai ( PCE now ) , JAAG President Darshan Jhaveri, immediate Past JAAI President Shapath Shah, the manager Fr Jerry Sequeira SJ who was former Provincial , current Jesuit management , staff and over 300 alumni/ae.
The program started with a prayer, inputs and information was shared and conveyed by the experienced personnel and many alumni shared their experiences too. The program included making a blueprint for future events/plans, how to join hands and move ahead in JAAG, West Zone, JAAI and WUJA, and the management had made elaborate arrangements for lunch too for all present , an amazing and productive morning it was.
The PCA Fr Charles Aruldas was in Pune attending the JAAI WZ council meeting along with the Gujarat Province representatives. The highlight of JAAG has been igniting dormant associations and also kickstarting new ones . Kudos to Principal Fr Albert and Vice Principal Anil, along with many Jesuits who started off in this institute, coincidentally this is the oldest Jesuit institute in Gujarat Province.
