F.4 PARENTS' GATHERING (2022-2023)

On 29th October 2022, 87 parents came to school and attended the F.4 Parents’ Gathering. Our Principal, Mr. Leung first delivered opening address at the beginning of the Parents’ Gathering event. Immediately after the welcoming speech, the school Vice Prinicpal, Mr. Ching and Career Guidance Mistress, Miss Chan introduced the senior secondary curriculum & concerns about the HKDSE, and multiple post-secondary education pathways respectively. Besides, our school Discipline Mistress Ms. Pak gave reminders about students’ behavior that parents shall pay attention to. Last but not least, we also invited school social worker Mr. Shek to share tips to parents about showing parental love and support in an appropriate way as their boys are stepping into senior secondary period. After the information session, the parents met and exchanged ideas with the form teachers.

We would like to thank those F.4 students’ parents, whose care and love is invaluable to their children.

The first “Cooking with Kevin” Class

This school year, our NET teacher Kevin organises cooking classes for our students, as an EMI (English medium instruction) activity. We are very pleased that the very first “Cooking with Kevin” class started on 14th October. Three senior form boys took part in the cooking class and learnt to bake Chocolate Cranberry Banana Bread. The boys learnt to bake with Kevin in English and surprised their families with their baking creations. The participants shared their thoughts:

Andrew – “The banana bread was delicious and perfect for breakfast. I love the moist texture and the mixed flavour of it.”

James – “My parents loved it, and they ate up most of it... But we thought that the bread was a little too sweet, so I will either add less sugar or add dark chocolate instead next time."

Daniel - "It’s a little too sweet. The combination of chocolate and berries made the bread taste good. My parents were very surprised. They didn't believe I did it myself."

Stay tuned for the future updates on our cooking classes.

F.6 Parents' Gathering (2022-2023)

On 8th October, the F.6 Parents’ Gathering was held. We are pleased to have about 65 parents participating in the event on that day. For the first half of the day, a seminar took place in the school hall. The seminar introduced the JUPAS scheme, selection of programme choices and other learning experiences to parents. At the seminar, our school social worker, Ms. Lam, was also invited to share the skills with parents that how they might accompany their sons during the stressful journey of preparing for DSE. After the seminar session, parents met our form teachers to express and exchange ideas with teachers. Our school is glad that most parents found this event informative and helpful.
