SISHU SANGMILONI (2020)
The event Sishu Sangmiloni – Virtual Children’s Day Celebration has been formulated arranged and executed by the Social Responsibility Wing (Xavier Social Responsibility) of Xavier Business School
under the guidance of Dr. Fr. Mourlin K. S.J on. The objective of this event was to have an interactive session with the underprivileged and disadvantaged children from various NGO’s by way of songs, dances, recitations and other cultural performances towards spreading a spirit of love, care and compassion among budding young minds at the different NGOs.
The welcome address was delivered by Dr. Manodip Ray Chaudhuri, Dean- XBS, followed by an inauguration speech by our Hon’ble Vice Chancellor Rev. Fr. Dr. John Felix Raj, S.J. Father Vice Chancellor showered the gathering with inducing words thereby creating an ambience of mutuality, compassion, enticement and inducement among all the children participating in the program.
The entire event comprised of several solo and group musical performances by the children of the NGO’s. It was remarkably pleasurable and exhilarating to witness little souls performs in front of everybody through the online platform. The event gained sensation and enthusiasm with the students of XBS participating and showcasing their talents for the children.
It was a quite an immensely big day for XBS to hold hands with all the little children for a cause, so poignant and affecting for the social community at large.
SOCIAL EXCURSION 2019
On 22nd December 2019, when the world was getting dressed up for Christmas, students of Xavier Business School chose to spend it in an unconventional way. They visited the Howrah South Point Specially Abled Children's Home at Rajganj, Jalpaiguri.
This place is a residence for a group of differently abled children. A small function was arranged for their entertainment where our students danced, sang and recited stories to entertain this special group of kids. The most surprising fact was that these kids were extremely enthusiastic and passionate about dance and music themselves and they performed small acts for us to enjoy. This acted as a subtle reminder for all of us to value what we have been gifted with, which we so often take for granted and how we should always do whatever little we can for the less fortunate ones.
This day taught all of us how compassion and love as a weapon can help us fight the world. We saw only pure joy in the eyes of these beautiful souls right from the time we entered the place and handed over balloons to them. As for our students, their hearts were full and the whole place was filled with people with teary eyes and the brightest smiles. After a day full of games, music, dance and prayers we bid farewell to these wonderfully special people with a promise to visit again very soon. We did our part and Christmas could not have been better.
VILLAGE CHILDREN EMPOWERMENT 2018
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 students of the University as well as the students from MBA Department. 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. Village Children were given a hamper bag with gifts they went home with broad smiles on their faces.
