Seminar for F.6 students

Before the fateful DSE Result Releasing Day, our school put together a seminar day for our F.6 students on the 7th of July. Teachers from our Counseling Committee and Careers Guidance Committee helped the attendees to learn how to technically, tactically, mentally and emotionally prepare for the release of DSE results. The F.6 boys also got to share their concerns and worries. The event was successfully concluded followed by an evening event for the F.6 parents.

STEM in mBot Workshop

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education has become a focus of the recent EDB curriculum reform. Catching this wave of educational trend, the school joined the mBot Workshop organized by the City University of Hong Kong. Our students from F.3 and F.5 participated in the robot assembling and programming activities with the objectives to program the robots to play soccer and move alone direction lines automatically. Our students really enjoyed the activities and the hands-on experience. The school will surely put together more STEM programs like this in the coming year.

The Thanksgiving Mass for the Silver Jubilee of Brother John’s Profession of Vows

On 20th May 2017, we celebrated the Silver Jubilee of Brother John’s Profession of Vows during a Thanksgiving Mass held at Our Lady of China Church. Dozens of our students and teachers attended the Mass and witnessed this joyful occasion first hand. Without catching the eyeballs of many, our humble Brother has already served education for 25 years. We thank him for his dedication and we will continue to pray for him to receive power ceaselessly to continue his work.
