Live for God – This phrase signifies one’s relationship with God and the need to be connected to the Almighty. Our life is a gift from God and we must live in such way that it is pleasing to God. It calls each Xavierian to be spiritual in all that he/she does.

Lead for Nepal – This phrase signifies one’s responsibility towards the nation and the call to be a true citizen of our great nation. Each Xavierian is expected to be examples of true citizenship and lead from the front for the welfare and growth of the nation.

(The School Motto ‘Live for God, Lead for Nepal’ was developed by Mr. ChiranjeeviKarki in 1964. He was in class seven then. )
