Over 2000 alumni, students, parents and friends participated in the Navratri Mahotsav organized by The Ex Xavierites Alumni Association of Surat (TEXAS) at St. Xavier's High School, Surat on October 1st and 2nd 2014. Several competitions were held in various categories. Organizing an event on such a scale is very expensive and we are grateful to our alumni who donated Rs 8 lakhs towards the conducting of the event. The Chief Guest for the event was the Collector of Surat. Several dignitaries from the Police, Judiciary, Education and Municipality also attended the event.
