Careers Talk (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.

Swimming Gala (November 25, 2016)
The Annual Swimming Gala was successfully held at Victoria Park Swimming Pool on 25th November. 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.

Inter-class Board Decoration Competition (November 17, 2016)
In front of the board at the back of the classroom gathered a bunch of students group of students with colour paper and staplers in their hands. 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.

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.
