St. Xavier's University organized a camp under the aegis of "Xaverians in Action" at the campus from December 17 to 22. 160 neighborhood children attended the camp mentored by 150 University student volunteers. Visits of the University students to villages have conscientized them and made them understand the rural realities.
The camp concluded on 22nd with a Christmas celebration. Fr. Felix Raj delivered the Christmas message with a note of appreciation to our students for their efforts to bring joy to our neighborhood children. Singer, Ms Swastika Mukherjee brought joy to all by her carols and songs. A Christmas cake was cut by the Vice-Chancellor and other dignitaries and shared by all.
Village Children were given a hamper bag with gifts they went home with broad smiles on their faces. A high tea was organized for faculty and staff. Thanks for Paritosh Majumdar, GP Gupta, Manali Bhattacharya, Medha Bhadra Chowdhury and student volunteers for their efficient organization of the programme.
