On December 25, 2023, a Christmas lunch was hosted for the Taikoktsui community in collaboration with the Community of Sant'Egidio on our school's campus. Over 100 including seniors, and homeless neighbors attended the lunch.

The lunch was co-organized with a big team of volunteers from the alumni, students and parents of our school, and also helpers from the Community of Sant'Egidio, the Focolare Movement,  students from St.Paul's School (Lam Tin) College and Chong Gene Hang College. The volunteers served the attendees a delicious meal and prepared different kinds of performance and gifts for them.

The bishop of Hong Kong, Cardinal Stephen Chow Sau-Yan, joined us as the guest of honor at the event. He spoke about the importance of spreading love and compassion during the Christmas season. He also encouraged all volunteers to reach out to those in need and build relationships with them.

Our school has started to serve the community in collaboration with the Community of Sant'Egidio around half a year ago. This Christmas was a reminder that the true meaning of Christmas, which is about love, compassion and community. It also gave us an opportunity to bring the joy of Christmas to our neighbors in need.

Return to the all Hong Kong Schools Football Jing Ying Tournament

Our A-grade football team won the champion of the Inter School Football competition (D3) on 15th December 2023 at Po Tsui Park. The unwavering team spirit and determination displayed by our boys on the pitch were truly commendable.

The support from our schoolmates and alumni off the pitch added an extra layer of encouragement. The presence of over a hundred passionate supporters, cheering for our football team, vividly exemplified the family spirit—our school's core value—in action!

Becoming the champion of A grade earned us a privilege to participate in the all Hong Kong Schools Football Jing Ying Tournament in February of 2024. This marks our school's return to this significant inter-school football competition after more than a decade.

We highly commend our A grade football team members for achieving such a remarkable achievement and they will keep their heads up and work harder to create historical success in the coming Jing Ying Football Tournament.

Once again, congratulations to our A grade football team!
