STEM in mBot Workshop

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education has become a focus of the recent EDB curriculum reform. Catching this wave of educational trend, the school joined the mBot Workshop organized by the City University of Hong Kong. Our students from F.3 and F.5 participated in the robot assembling and programming activities with the objectives to program the robots to play soccer and move alone direction lines automatically. Our students really enjoyed the activities and the hands-on experience. The school will surely put together more STEM programs like this in the coming year.

Joseph Cheung. The Mass was officiated by Rev. Cardinal John Tong and Rev. Bishop Joseph Ha.

To accompany our beloved Brother Joseph to his last journey, in the morning of 17th June 2017, more than 1000 alumni and teachers gathered again at St. Francis of Assisi Church, Shik Kip Mei, to bit farewell to our beloved Brother Joseph. The ceremony was officiated by our alumni priest, Father Joseph Yim. The body of Br. Joseph was then moved to and buried in Cheung Sha Wan Catholic Cemetery. Let us pray for the soul of Br. Joseph and remember him in our hearts.

Visit of Shanghai Bei Hong Senior Secondary School 2017

It has becoming a custom for teachers from Shanghai Bei Hong Senior Secondary School to visit us as a form of professional exchange each year. This year, more than 10 senior teachers visited us on the 13th of June. They toured around our school and listened to the sharing from our teachers and students. We hope that this kind of visit and exchange will strengthen the connection between the two schools and broaden the horizon for all teachers.
