3rd Gathering of the English Ambassadors

London Calling!

Mr. Varma, our Native English Teacher, was keen to impart some local knowledge on the English Ambassadors about his home city of London. The 3rd English Ambassadors’ gathering took place on 11th March and the EAs were told exciting facts about various monuments and both famous and notorious people from the English capital. They learned lots of trivia from telephone box windows and the initials of reigning monarchs on the red pillar boxes to the ravens of the Tower of London and the mistaken purchase of Tower Bridge by the USA.

Finally, in small groups the English Ambassadors devised a story using the new vocabulary along with the facts and figures just learned. The stories were allowed to be nonsensical in order to aid memorization. Another enjoyable and fun gathering for the English Ambassadors!

F3 Film Dubbing Competition

Scenes from the popular animated comedy film ‘Despicable Me 2’ were dubbed by representatives of each F3 class in the Inter-class Film Dubbing Competition held on 10th March, 2015. With their creativity, team work and interesting voices, each class staged a wonderful live performance for the audience.

The outstanding winners are as follows:
Champion: 3A
1st runner-up: 3B

Congratulations!

Evangelization Week 1415

The Evangelization Week was held from March 9 to 12 on the theme “Walking with Mary”.

During the week, information about the theme, students’ writings and a religious art created by Ms Cindy Ng were displayed in the school campus. The junior form students all viewed the display items during the Religious Studies lessons.

Besides the display, there were also a myriad of activities. At lunchtime on the first day, there was a mini band show. At lunchtime on the third day, a drawing workshop – ‘the Shoe of Walking with Mary’ was held in the covered playground by the CSA Committee members. The junior form participants all had a better understanding of the theme after the workshop. A seminar conducted by Brother Ernie was held on the same day during the eighth lesson for F3-4 students, followed by an after-school gathering during which the participants reflected upon the virtues of Mary through games and videos. The Week was drawn to a complete close with a Mass.

As in the previous year, some primary schools were invited to our school for a visit. This year, we were honoured to have Tai Kok Tsui Catholic Primary School, Tai Kok Tsui Catholic Primary School (Hoi Fan Road) and St Francis of Assisi’s English Primary School to visit our display and attend the sharing sessions conducted by Brother John and CSA Committee members on 13, 18 and 20 March respectively. The guest students also visited our Chapel. We are glad that our guests found our religious development impressive and they hope to visit our school again next year.

SFXC60 Walkathon

One of the fundraising activities for celebrating our school’s 60th Anniversary is the SFXC60 Walkathon, which was successfully held on Friday, 6th March, 2015. All the participants, including our students, teachers, alumni of different generations, Principal and students of our brother school SFXS Tsuen Wan, VIPs and PTA members, enjoyed such a restorative walk along the Shing Mun Reservoir with great relish. The fresh air, scenic views, casual chats and even the crouching and leaping monkeys all made an ordinary Friday a remarkable one.

At the end of the walk, each participant received a SFXC 60th Anniversary Commemorative Light-up Keychain as an appreciation for their time and effort in contributing to this family event.
