2018 English Drama Fest (April, 2018)

If some of the most evil and infamous men in history and present came face to face with some of the most famous, courageous, inspiration and selfless woman of today and yesteryear, would their characters and values change? Would they redeem themselves and choose a better path that will not lead to the destruction that happened and changed the face of the world we now know?

Seventeen talented St. Francis’ girls gathered to explore these incredible characters and came up with a play. Directed by Ms Shiona Carson, the artistic director of Shakespeare for All, the play was awarded the Outstanding Script in the 2018 English Drama Fest, organised by the Association of English Medium Secondary Schools. Samantha Li of F.4D got the Outstanding Performer Award. Congratulations to the Team of performers! Special thanks to Shiona, who has coached our students to success in the drama competition.

Jasmin Cheng6CCherry Chow4CI am happy to win some of the competitions and gained precious experience throughout these matches. Although we could not enter the final in this season, we will keep on practising and prepare for our next competition. It has been so encouraging when our seniors and graduates came back to support us. With their support we have become stronger and gained more confidence to beat the opponents in the future. We would also like to take the opportunity to thank our coach. Without his guidance and support, we would not have been able to excel and unleash our potentials.

Hong Kong Secondary School Debating Competition (December 1, 2017)

Students: Casey Chiu 5A, Elaine Ko 5C and Zoe Cheung 4C

The Hong Kong Secondary School Debating Competition is no doubt an excitement. On 1st December, our Senior Debating Team won the Champion trophy for Term One Challenge (2017-2018). Each round comprised of a meaningful and challenging motion which our Senior Debating Team prepared for. Each win gave them more confidence and boosted their morale to strive for the best. It was a pleasure for our girls to meet other debating teams from different schools, and the enjoyments were doubled when they had the chance to visit the opponents’ schools. Through three rounds of competition in the first term, the girls gained knowledge and further improved their debating skills. Elaine Ko was the “Best Speaker” for the first two rounds with Zoe Cheung winning the title in the final round. All these achievements are important for the girls to feel proud of what they have learnt in their debating journey - critical thinking, debating skills, collaborative skills and not to mention team-work are to name a few. This competition is totally worth it!

Awards:

Champion trophy for Term One Challenge (2017-2018)
