OBITUARY

We deeply regret the demise of our ex teacher Ms. Keshwer F who passed over to the heavenly shores on 27th April 2021.

Ms. Keshwer F taught at SXBA for many years and has touched the lives of many students of our school of the secondary section and left a mark on them.

We thank God for the gift of this very talented Social Science and French teacher who involved and engaged herself whole heartedly in the various curricular and co curricular activities in our institution and pray for courage and strength to her loved ones.

May she RIP.

Principal.

28/4/2021.

Ms. Keshwer we will miss you


It was 1st Dec. 1993. I had come to attend an interview at the Academy. I was a little tense sitting outside the office; waiting for a Call from than Principal Mam. Saldhana.

After a while I noticed a pretty lady in a decent western outfit, coming from the stairs, her contrast bright red and white dress was giving her a very graceful look.

After reporting to Ms. Angela (office staff) she quietly came and sat on the same bench.

I guessed that she also might have come for interview. After a formal greeting I simply enquired about her. Cheerfully she introduced herself as Keshwer Fatakia, came for the interview and takes English, SS, and French. mean while sitting there she laughingly narrated that how she got confused to find the right location of Boys Academy, then how a Taxiwala helped her. The conversation made me little relaxed and tensed free that day one by one we both gave our interviews.

later we both got selected to serve the Boys Academy. This was my first meeting with Ms Keshwer Fatakia.

than we worked together for 20 yrs, i didn’t realise how these all years passed.

She was quite popular among the boys as a colleague we have lots of memories. She had a very innocent and honest approach towards life she used to share most of the incidents of her life with the staff members .

I remember if Keshwer Ms. is coming towards Master room means sure she has something funny to share with us. She never came with empty bags, while going back quietly she used to keep a packet of snacks for everyone.

I know that she was also quite fond of eating a variety of snacks but she never forgot to treat others.

Those days Drama day used to a big event in Academy. English Opera, Hindi/ Marathi Drama, Dance, filler Items means most of the students used to take part in it.

Teachers were allotted duties according to their subjects but Ms. Keshwer willingly used to opt for Marathi Drama, Being an English French teacher she always used to prefer to be with Mr. Dias and Mr.D'Cruz for Marathi language Drama.

I remember during Sports preparation at the ground while Marching practice she was always ahead with boys, very proudly she used to tell “ Listen I was in Scout Girls guide Captain in my school ”. She had health issues, we know she was not comfortable for a long walk but she never made any excuses about it. always ready for the service.

She worked for 20 yrs in Academy later she left the school due to her health issues. But she was in constant touch with all of the staff and most of the students.

Until last week she was in touch with most of us she was not keeping well, even in her sickness two days back she sent a voice msg. informing about Miss Terry's wellness, hearing her voice I noticed that she is not well, I advised her to look after herself, at this stage too she was a concern for friends.

This type of approach she had for others, always smiling, thinking for others.


Ms. Keshwer we will miss you always.


Mukhtar Khan (Staff)

Ms. Keshwer spelt with a ‘wer’ often told her students who misspelt her name with a ‘war’ that there was no ‘war’ in her name. Yes Ms. Keshwer always stood for peace, she was an eternal optimist, a much loved teacher, a fine friend, a great colleague, who was a team player and generous to a fault as giving gifts and treats gave her great joy and she celebrated every occasion.

Ms. Keshwer joined St. Xavier’s Boys’ Academy a year after I did and our friendship grew as we worked together and shared our joys and sorrows.

Infact we would giggle and say that we would hang our boots together too as we share the same year of birth, but God has his own plans.

Ms. Keshwer did a great job as honorary Jt. Secretary of PASTOR for 10 years and I was appointed the same after she resigned from St. Xavier’s Boys, Academy because of failing health.

I thank God for the gift of Ms. Keshwer to St Xavier’s Boys Academy and to all of us. Rest in peace my dearest Keshwer. Gone too soon but your memories will always be cherished.

Ms. Monica

Dear Parents (Stds. 5 to 10) 2020-2021

1) It has been brought to my notice by teachers that quite a few number of students (from every class) have not yet enrolled themselves in the google classrooms. Your son will miss a lot of work, learning, activities etc. if he fails to do so immediately. He will also find it very difficult to catch up with the rest of his classmates who have already enrolled themselves.

2) It has also been observed by us that some students have enrolled themselves in the google classrooms with multiple email id's, some have their parents name on the id instead of the students etc. Please note all such students will not be permitted entry into the classrooms by the teachers when we begin to take attendance on 15th June 2020 onwards. Attendance will be taken in the name of the student only. Those who do not comply with this rule will be deleted from the google class. Hence kindly rectify all such errors if they have inadvertently been done by you. Kindly create only one email id for your son, following the explicit instructions on the school website.

- PRINCIPAL.

Dear Parents & Students,

As you are aware of the current Covid-19 Pandemic situation, things will take some time to resume back to Normal. It is our endeavour to continue to serve you as teachers, even though we are unable to meet in School. To kick start the Academic Year 2020-2021 and to take Education to the next level, we are in the process of setting up Virtual Classrooms on Google’s GSuite for Education and will we soon keep you informed when we complete this process.

Fortunately for us we are one of the few schools in Mumbai who have managed to get an account for GSuite for Education as well as Microsoft 365 for Education. All this was made possible by our IT Specialist and Web designer Mr. Neil DSouza who pursued this endlessly with both Google and Microsoft.

Google Classroom is a virtual platform whereby students and parents can view, help their children study subjects taught and complete assignments given online. To enter a virtual classroom a list of class codes will be made available to you for each Standard soon. You can visit each class on your desktop or mobile and view multimedia content like videos, Power Point Presentations, Word Documents and PDF files.

In the meantime Parents you are requested to make the necessary arrangements for internet connectivity and any smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop to be available to your child / ward to facilitate this online learning process.

Till then stay home, stay safe and be happy.

Principal
