Application forms for admission to Preparatory class are
available at the office of the Primary School usually from
1st November on payment of a nominal fee. They must be submitted
by the scheduled date with a non-refundable Registration fee.
Documentary evidence of the date of birth must be submitted
with the application form for admission, at the time of registration.
Parents are reminded that the date of birth of the child,
registered at the time of admission, cannot be changed later.
The selection process will be designed to assess the suitability
of children to cope with the academic and general atmosphere
of the school. It will therefore, contain objective and subjective
elements that will assess the aptitude and personality of
the children. Day-to-day experiences of children of about
five years will form the basis for assessment and selection.
Parents are warned against over-preparing their children.
The children will be expected to be sufficiently socialized
to be able to sit in a classroom with other children in a
learning situation. It is also important that they are able
to follow instruction in English.
STD. I – VII
All children coming from other schools for admission to St.
Xavier’s will be tested and admitted if there are vacancies
and if it is judged that the child will benefit from being
a student here.
Other things being equal students coming from schools affiliated
to the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations
should be more suited to the system of education given here.
Preference for admission will be given to the children of
parents who have come to Bokaro on transfer rather than to
those already studying in local schools.
Normally, admission will not be given to students coming
for classes beyond Standard VII. Consideration may be given
in exceptional cases, if there are vacancies and the student
is coming from another I.C.S.E. school.
Admission will be granted to students of St. Xavier's Bokaro
Steel City who have passed the ICSE (Std. X) examination and
have shown especially during Std. IX and Std. X that they
have the ability to cope with the demands of the ISC plus
two (Std. XI-XII) course. The standard of fitness will be
determined by the Principal. Eligibility of candidates will
also be decided, apart from other considerations, by the discipline
record of students in the school during previous years.
Students from other ICSE schools seeking admission to Std.
XI may be admitted if there are vacancies and if they satisfy
the school that they have the ability to cope with the course.
Admission of such students is possible only if their parents
are residents of Bokaro Steel City. Admission to the school
will be revoked if false information is given regarding the
nature of relationship or if a student in course of time is
found to reside away from the guardian.
Students from non-ICSE schools do not easily fit into the
ISC pattern at this late and difficult stage and will not
normally be admitted. This decision has been taken on the
basis of past experience of poor adjustment made by students
who had come from non-ICSE schools.
A few exceptionally fit candidates from non-ICSE schools
may be given admission if their parents reside in Bokaro Steel
City and if there are vacancies. Fitness in such cases will
be judged by tests given by the school and admission subject
to obtaining a certificate of Eligibility from the Council
For Indian School Certificate Examinations.
The normal process of withdrawing a student from the school
is to apply for a Transfer Certificate, which will be granted
on payment of a fee. In addition, the names of students who
have not returned to school by 15th April and whose absence
has not been excused will be withdrawn from the rolls.
During the course of the year students, who are absent for
a period of one month without notifying the school, will be
presumed to have left the school and their names struck off
the rolls. When a student fails twice in the same class, the
parents will be asked to take a Transfer Certificate.
