The alumni association of St. Xavier’s College is organising this six years after our Toronto visit in 2016. We are extremely excited and the response from Xaverians and participants have been overwhelming. The pandemic has definitely strengthened the bond among the members. Beyond Boundaries VII is also one of the biggest fundraisers of SXCCAA and we are looking forward to a lot of fun and fellowship activities,” said Firdausul Hasan, honorary secretary, St. Xavier’s College Calcutta Alumni Association.
