Reassignment of the School Supervisor

Due to ailing health and concern for his age, our beloved Brother Joseph has resigned as School Supervisor with effect from 17th March 2017. Although we all have a feeling of melancholy we are eternally grateful to Br. Joseph’s many years of resolute service and being among us.

During this period of transition Mr. Peter Lee (李崇德太平紳士) has been appointed as Acting School Supervisor by our School Sponsoring Body, the Marist Brothers. Mr. Lee is a renowned educator and has been a member of our school’s Incorporated Management Committee for a number of years. Please join me in welcoming Mr. Lee as Acting Supervisor and in praying for Br. Joseph’s good health and peaceful retirement.

Exchange Programme with SFXS 2016-2017

The annual Student Exchange Programme between St. Francis Xavier’s College (SFXC) and our brother school St. Francis Xavier’s School Tsuen Wan (SFXS) was successfully conducted in March 2017. With the aims to enhance communication between the two Marist schools in Hong Kong and to increase students’ exposure, five S.5 students from each school had spent 5 school days at their school. In a 2-week period, one student participant from each school was paired up with the other as buddies, so that they could help each other in and out of the classrooms. At the end of the two-week programme, a tea party was held in the Brothers’ Quarter, in which all parties concerned were invited to share their experience and bid each other farewell.
