Social and Physical Training
Intramural games and sports are conducted to give maximum opportunity to every boy to develop his/her student talents for leadership, sportsmanship and team sprit. Principles of trust, co-operation, self-reliance, hard work and honesty are inculcated in great measure through co curricular activities in the school. Some of the co-curricular activities encouraged at St. Xavier’s are: public speaking, dramatics, drawing and painting, music and singing; excursions and educational tours. The house system (In the high school) controls most of these activities.
