F.6 Parents Gathering 2017-18

The F.6 Parents Gathering for 2017-2018 was held recently on the 21st of October. 105 parents attended a seminar introducing multiple graduate pathways available, the JUPAS scheme and other learning experience and achievements of our F.6 students. Our School-based Social Worker, Ms. Lui, also gave a talk on the topic of accompanying our students on their journey of taking the stressful HKDSE. After the seminar, parents had the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with all the F.6 Form Teachers. We would like to thank our F.6 parents, whose active participation and hard work in the lives of their sons will surely bear fruits as the boys graduate from secondary school and mature into adulthood.

2nd Teacher Development Day 2017-18

On 11th October, the school organized the 2nd Teacher Development Day for the year 2017-18. We invited Mr. Morton Chan, the School Development Officer of the Quality School Improvement Project Team from CUHK, to give us a seminar on Teaching and Assessment Alignment. Through thought provoking lecture, real-life examples and engaging demonstrations, Mr. Chan led us to contemplate our own teaching practices. Let’s hope that we can use what we’ve learned to enhance our teaching and students’ learning in the near future.

First Victory in Hong Kong Secondary School Debating Competition 2017-18

On 6th October, our school’s English Debating Team scored their first major victory in the Hong Kong Secondary School Debating Competition (HKSSDC) 2017-18. The HKSSDC is organized annually by Mr. Stan Dyer, the famous debater and educator who is renowned for promoting English debating among schools in Hong Kong. More than 300 teams have joined the competition this year and the motion for the first round of debate is that: “This House Believes That Hong Kong should significantly increase the use of robots to help look after the young and the elderly here.” Our English Debating Team 1, consisted of Stanley Siu (5C), Edwin Lam (4D) and Jonathan Ho (4A), supported the motion against Pentecostal Lam Hong Kwong School, one of the 4 Grand Final Champions last year. It was a fierce debate and we finally won due to our more solid arguments and stronger team cohesion. Congratulations to the SFXC English Debating Team and keep up the good work!
