The F.1 Parents Gathering for 2018-2019 school year was recently held on the 22nd September. 131 parents attended our seminar that introduced our school’s academic structure, extra-curricular activities and discipline policies. We also invited an experienced social worker from HK Youth Federation to give a talk on the emotional needs of our F.1 boys. After the seminar, parents had the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with their sons’ Form Teachers. The gathering had become a meaningful and fruitful event thanks to our F.1 parents’ active participation.

Inauguration Gathering of English Ambassadors 2018-2019

On Wednesday, 19th September, the English Ambassadors met at their inaugural gathering and were given information about the fantastic activities they would be participating in this academic year, ranging from a warm gathering at a village house to the lunch-time Scrabble games. It is sure to be an exciting year for all the Ambassadors and those served by them.

Through conducting language games, taking part in our theme-based activities and delivering speeches at the morning assemblies, we hope that the English Ambassadors will promote the English speaking environment on school campus and become role models for our fellow Xaverians.

SU 2018-2019 Election Day

The election of the Student Union for the academic year 2018-2019 was held on 12th September 2018. “Harmony”, the only proposed SU cabinet this year, was put to a test of confidence by a democratic election. Our principal Mr. Iu Kwong Chi casted the first vote in this election during the morning assembly. The majority of the staff and students also voted throughout the day.

In the end, the total number of valid votes counted was 737, which accounted for 93% of the regular members of our school community (students and staff included). Out of the 737 valid votes, 499 (67.7%) voted for “confidence”, and 132 (17.9%) voted for “no confidence” in our only proposed SU cabinet. Hence, “Harmony” was successfully elected. Their Chairman, Yam Kai Yui of F.5D delivered his Victory Speech during the afternoon assembly to thank the supporters of Harmony and promised that he and his team would try their very best to serve the students and the school. Let’s congratulate them and show them our greatest support by joining their coming activities in 2018-2019!
