6 years of secondary schooling had finally come to an end for all F.6 students on 20 January 2017. To commemorate this memorable day, 2 class representatives from each F.6 class had given a vote of thanks to all their form teachers and subject teachers in the morning assembly. The Graduation Committee this year had also prepared the school a handmade gift – a giant potted four-leaf clover, to symbolize their faith and also the school motto “Gentle in Manner, Resolute in Action”. In addition, when the school bell rung at 15:20, all F.6 students and their form teachers stood at the school playground in the pattern of a four-leaf clover, bidding farewell to their secondary school life one last time by singing along a selection of songs and sharing their gratitude towards their Alma Mater.
