2007 had been a very special year in the history of St. Xavier's Bathinda. It's a year when the first batch of XII standard has passed out with flying colors. Hence without being boastful,only a single glance at the stats shall later on reveal the unparalled laurels achieved by our Xavierites not only in the field of academics but cocurricular and various sports activities too. To mention a few, Ms. Sabia Handa scored a record breaking of 98% in the history of Malwa region nad the next 2 top positions in Bathinda district were claimed by the Xavierites i.e. Miss Navjot Kaur and Master Parasjot respectively. 38 students scored above 90% marks.

Ms. Amandeep Dhanoa topped the science group with 91.20% and Mr. Udit Chugh ranked 1st in commerce stream.

A Word About The Society of Pilar

The Society of Pilar, an Indian Christian organization, was founded in Goa in 1887 by Fr. Bento Martins, with the sole aim of sharing Gospel of true human well being as proclaimed by Jesus Christ. Initially, the activity of its members was limited to Goa and the surrounding areas. However, in 1939, the society received a new thrust and vitality, and from then on its members ventured to work far and wide in different parts of India, zealously spreading the Gospel that Jesus lived and died for.
One of the focuses of the Society's work has been in the field of education. Today the Society of Pilar has about 60 Residential units and counts about 400 odd members working in several parts of India - from Jammu in the north to Chennai in the south, from Gujrat and Mumbai in the west to far - off Andaman Islands in the East and even abroad. The society runs schools and colleges and several Hostels and orphanages, besides other social welfare activities. The Northern region of the Society of Pilar, of which St. Xavier's Bathinda is part, has ten residential units and about thirty five members.


St. Xavier's High School, Bathinda is an affiliate of the registered society of Pilar, Punjab-Haryana, a branch of the society of Pilar, Goa. The latter runs a number of other social activities like dispensaries, grihini schools, orphanages, balwadis etc. St. Xavier's High School was opened in 1983, as a response to the pressing needs of the town of Bathinda and the surrounding villages.
Originally an all-boys school, it opened its portals to girls in April 1990. The aim of the school is not only to prepare the students academically, but also to cater to the all-round development of the child, especially its moral and intellectual qualities. In this way the school strives to draw out the best from each individual and enable its pupils to blossom into mature citizens of our country. The school is owned and managed by a religious group, which is a legitimate right provided for minority communities in our constitution.
The school offers diversity of academic facilities. It has also introduced computer science, classical dance and music as part of its curriculum. The programme of studies is in accordance with the syllabus laid down by the central board of Secondary Education, Delhi. While the medium of instruction is English, the school also lays special emphasis on teaching Punjabi, Hindi and Sanskrit as additional languages.
