“A good biologist is the one who solves queries but an excellent one puts forth best queries.”
“BIOCONQUEST”, an inter school event is one of the latest events initiated by our school with an aim of generating a passion amongst students towards the nature and thereby promoting the idea of life science. It has been organised in the memory of late Dr.Rani Ramrakhiani who was Professor of Pathology at SMS Medical college & attached group of hospitals at Jaipur.
The event was organised for the year 2016 on 21st January. BIOCONQUEST-2016 reaches a new level of significance as we celebrate 75 glorious years of St Xavier’s Sr.Sec School in Jaipur.
The special guest for the occasion were Dr. Vasudev Deo and Dr. Dilip Ramrakhiani , son of Late Dr. Rani Ramrakhiani.
The masters of ceremony of this brilliant quiz were Arushi Bhargava and Bhumija Upadhyay.
The program commenced with the lighting of lamp by our chief guest along with our Father Principal and other Vice Principals. This was followed by Father John Ravi’s speech who inspired the students to rekindle their spirit of commitment towards our Mother Earth and do something to rebuild our world.
