As part of our effort to promote STEM education, we organized students to sit a series of special astronomy lectures offered by the Hong Kong Space Museum during the summer. On 12th July, six of our F.4 and F.5 students joined one of these talks. We hope that more students will become interested and sit these free lectures on their own.
Last Sunday, 10 of our students participated in the “Secondary School Students Journalism Education Workshop 2016” co-organized by Journalism Education Foundation, EDB, and Department of Media and Communication of City University. The objectives of this annual event were to help secondary school students to gain insights into important concepts such as the functions of mass media, Freedom of Press and Journalistic Ethics.
This year, our students also got the opportunity to visit the Headquarter of TVB News Department and Run Run Shaw Creative Media Center of City University. The aim of these visitations was to give students exposure to the process of news production. The event was concluded by a ceremony to award certificates and souvenirs.
When we look at these Xaverians in the pictures, we may be beholding the faces of next generation journalists.
On the 8th July, 20 of our F.3 students joined the Career Planning Expo organized by the Chinese General Chamber of Commerce – Yao Tsim Mong Liaison Office.
Key speakers and representatives from industries such as Catering, Legal, Entertainment, Accounting and Public Relations offered insightful addresses and sharings. Students were also given time to interact with them at a more personal level. In the end, all participants left with a fruitful day and a clearer general picture for various industries in Hong Kong.
