Live St Francis! Live forever …

The school song speaks the words in the heart of all Franciscans. May the Lord bless our school today and always!

Summer Bridging Programme (August 16-22, 2019)

The Summer Bridging Programme 2019 has come to an end. The new Form 1 students spent five days in August in preparing for a smooth transition from their primary to secondary school life.
The programme began with a welcome speech delivered by the School Principal, followed by a briefing on the school regulations by the Discipline Master. They also met their Form and Co-form teachers and classmates of the new academic year. Besides having lessons in the three core subjects, English, Chinese and Mathematics, the newcomers were introduced to different School Teams and Clubs through participating in various activities organized by the student leaders.
