PTA Outing (February 18, 2017)

PTA organized an annual outing in February.  The aims of the activity are to strengthen the bonds and promote understanding between the school and parents.  The first destination of the journey is the “Lung Yeuk Tau Heritage Trail”.  The Trail is located at the northeast of Luen Wo Hui in Fanling, the New Territories. It provides an opportunity to learn about traditional life in the area of Lung Yeuk Tau and Fanling.  Many traditional Chinese buildings and structures have been preserved in their original state, thus demonstrating the history and life of early inhabitants in the New Territories. Our next stop is “Mr. Tsui’s Farm”.  Families can pick fresh produce such as strawberries, carrot, dates and different kinds of vegetables there. The final destination of our journey is the “Kam Tin Country Club” in Yuen Long.  Parents, students and teachers enjoy their barbecuing there with joy and fun.

Form 5 Sports Day Camp (February 17, 2017)

It was a beautiful day when we set off for Tai Tong Organic Eco Park. The Sports Day Camp is the highlight of the school year for Form 5 students. This year, we were particularly excited as we were going to ride a horse.

...

Everyone was serious and attentive while listening to the instructor’s introduction of the habits and characteristics of the horses. It is, however, difficult to suppress our excitement as we finally got to experience a ride on the horse’s back. As the horse trotted and we started the stroll around the course, I imagined myself being a professional horse-rider galloping in the wilderness. Apart from the once-in-a-life-time experience of riding a horse, we were also fascinated by the opportunity to feed and interact with the horses in the stable.

...


Form 4 Sports Day Camp (February 17, 2017)

The Jockey Club Sai Kung Outdoor Training Camp was filled with liveliness and excitement as our Form Four students gathered for the Sports Day Camp. Split into groups, all students experienced a variety of physically-demanding outdoor activities, including archery, rock-climbing, abseiling and track-point hunting.

...

Overwhelmed by the sense of accomplishment from their first attempt on archery, the girls displayed their full interest and attention in learning about shooting and experiencing it hand-on for the first time. Our skillful coaches guided us with care and humour, so our group of amateur archers could enjoy the fun of the sport! Abseiling was indeed the most challenging sports for most of the girls. Despite being terrified standing on a 5-storey high platform waiting to descend, we encouraged each other and cheered for each of our friends to soothe the slightly agitating atmosphere among us.

...

The majority of track-point hunting involves running around the hills and grassy tracks to find clues for a sequence of numbers within the time limit. Under the scorching sun, the girls showed their amazing vitality and determination in solving every challenge while keeping the spirit up to finish the remaining journey. At the end of the day, the laughs and tears and even exhaustion itself were what really made this day remarkable and unforgettable!

Christmas Celebration (December 21, 2016)

...

On 21st December, 2016, the annual Christmas Celebration organized by the Student Association, AIDOS has created a wonderful time for our fellow Franciscans.

 

There were three game sessions with four lucky draws this year. The first game was “Song Guessing”. Our schoolmates had to compete for marks by answering the names of songs mashed together. They enjoyed the game a lot and shown much enthusiasm.

...

The second game was called “World Record”. Student representatives were sent to the stage to finish different interesting tasks. The most unforgettable moment of the game was when students had to say Merry Christmas with three marshmallows in their mouths. Their cute chubby faces had certainly amused many of us.

...

“Finding Her” was our last game. Students had a great time looking for our teachers who were being hid among the crowd.

...

We were glad to have Ms. R. Lee and Ms. L.Y. Cheung as our guests in the lucky draw session which involved four rounds.  Fourteen of them left received souvenirs from the Student Association and special gifts from Ms. Lee.

...

All in all, our fellow Franciscans as well as the Student Association both had a great time celebrating the joyous festival with one another by engaging ourselves in such interesting games and sending out fabulous presents to spread the love and warmth to everyone. We would also like to thank our teacher advisors for giving us so much support and useful advice. Without their help, the event would not have been so successful. Last but not least, we hope all our schoolmates have enjoyed themselves and will continue to support AIDOS in the upcoming activities.

Careers Talk by Professor Joseph J.Y. Sung (December 15, 2016)

We were honoured to have the Vice-Chancellor of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Professor Joseph J.Y. Sung, as our guest speaker for the talk on "facing adversity and changes".

...

Dr. Sung began with the sharing of his experience in handling the SARS outbreak in 2003, emphasizing that obstacles in life are inevitable and it all depends on how we deal with them. This has given him the opportunity to see how difficulties strengthen the solidarity of the people in Hong Kong. When people are united, nothing can stand in their way. This is why effective communication is of ultimate importance, especially in teamwork.

...

Gratitude is another key to success. It is important to count our blessing and appreciate the small things in life when we feel despair in face of challenges. Dr. Sung also underscored the importance of upholding our integrity and modesty as leaders. Leaders, he stressed, should be prepared to make tough decisions and stand alone when facing criticisms. Besides, they have to look far and act fast. “Leaders are the first to see the need, envision the plan and take action. A good leader is always ready to walk the extra mile,” he said.

...

It was a fruitful day for us. We have been enlightened by Dr. Sung’s sharing of his personal experience in overcoming challenges and qualities as a leader. We have learnt a great deal not just from the substantial content of Dr. Sung’s talk, but even more so from his charm and charismatic leadership.

Sports Day (December 8, 9, 2016)

Our annual school sports day was successfully held on December 8 and 9, 2016 with the help from our fellow schoolmates and teachers, as well as the school janitor staff.

...

On the first day, the preliminary round of the track and field events were held. Our athletes stretched their potentials and endeavoured to bring honour to their house. The second day took the athletic meet to its climax, with the final rounds of events and the relays, and cheering performances being held. A new event being introduced is the teacher-student relay of the school functional teams. The enthusiasm shown by the student and teacher participants amazed the spectators and left everyone with a special memory. The cheering performance, involving mainly Form One students, was another highlight of the day. The energy and spirit they displayed through the dancing moves and steps were uplifting and refreshing for everyone.

...

We laughed, we cried. But we don’t give up. Many beautiful moments were captured on camera - the radiant smiles and satisfaction on the faces of our athletes as they ran across the finishing line; the pride and joy as they stood on the prize presentation platform; the chanting of our passionate cheering girls and a tap on the shoulder… The Sports Day was more than the showcasing of talents, but the manifestation of our sportsmanship, courage and the SFCC spirit.

It was a valuable opportunity for our diligent swimmers to stretch their potentials and demonstrate the spirit of sportsmanship. We are honoured to have Ms. Janice, Poon Wan Yi, our school alumna, to be our guest of honour and take part in a friendly Inter-house freestyle relay with our swimmers. The day started with the salute by our school Principal Mr. Kenneth Law, and eight swimming team members. Our swimmers unleashed their full potential and put superb effort into the swimming gala. They displayed an insatiable hunger for victory. In the process, a number of swimmers were able to achieve their personal best times. After many hard-fought races, particularly in the relay events, St. Gabriel House won the Overall Champion of the Annual Swimming Gala. The contribution of our cheering girls should not be forgotten. They proudly chanted the house slogan and cheered for their swimmers passionately, fully reflecting their sense of commitment and energy. The champion of the cheering competition goes to St. Valentina House whose excellent performance has taken the event to its climax.

There are paintbrushes, rolls of coloured paper, pieces of draft paper scattered on the desks. What’s happening? Yes! Everybody’s getting involved in the Inter-class board decoration competition.

 

Integrity, being the objective of the year, is the theme for the board decoration. This whole-school activity held every year by the Student Formation Team, aims at enhancing students’ understanding of the objective of the school.

 

On 17th November,2016, summer timetable was adopted, sparing an afternoon for students to decorate the board in their classroom together according to the draft they submitted to form teachers earlier that month. Under the rule that the English slogan “Integrity for life, live without strife” must be stated on the board, students flexed their creative muscles in the course of the activity. What if students could not finish their decoration before school ends? No worries! The deadline of the competition fell on 1st December, meaning that students could make use of their recess and lunchtime to finish off the decorations.

 

On the 2nd December, winning pieces are judged according to the following criteria: Relevance, display of a clear message, cleanliness, design, creativity and environmental friendliness. Two prizes are awarded in both the Junior (F.1-3) and Senior section (F.4-5), namely the Most Creative Award and the Most Outstanding Award.

 

The competition has provided our students with a valuable opportunity to establish a stronger rapport among classmates and develop a sense of belonging to their own class. The joyful moments of decorating the board collaboratively will be a precious piece of memory for every Franciscan.

Mr. Law emphasized the important contribution of social enterprises and the responsibility corporations can share in social welfare. Conscience and integrity are two of the most important virtues who should uphold.

Form 6 Catholic Students' Retreat (September 10, 2016)
Businesses of life may sometimes take away the peace in our heart and distant us from God. To enable our Form 6 students to open their hearts to be loved and strengthened by our God in any circumstances, the Canossian Mission organized a retreat for all Form 6 students on September 10. On this special Saturday, we have understood more about the life and deeds of our Foundress, in an endeavor to follow her footsteps in making Jesus known and loved. Through Taize prayers, group activities and inspiring sharing by our alumni Annette Wong, we are reminded of the love and faith we share and the power of healing through God’s love even at difficult times. The inspiration we get from the day is beyond what words can describe. You will understand when you see the faces radiating with joy and shining with faith.
