The annual F.1 Admission Information Day was held on 19th November. Three sessions of seminars and two school tours attracted about 1500 parents and potential F.1 students. Thanks to the help from all the staff members, students and parent volunteers, the event was a resounding success.
10 Form 4 students, who are currently studying Business, Accounting and Financial Studies, were nominated to join the Speed Mentoring Program, organized by Junior Achievement Hong Kong on the 16th of November 2016. It was a valuable experience to them as they had the opportunity to tour around the office of Bloomberg L.P. in Central. They visited the live broadcasting area, Bloomberg terminals and transparent working zones, etc.
Moreover, they had 7 minutes face-to-face interview session each with 10 Bloomberg staff members. Throughout the sharing session for more than an hour, the Bloomberg staff brought a lot of insights and advice to the students, which would be useful for them to reflect upon on what they would want to be in the future and how to build a successful career.
On 12th Nov (Sat), more than 160 students from 14 secondary schools came to our school to join the International Trade Workshop. It was a half-day workshop organized by Junior Achievement Hong Kong and FedEx Express.
As a hosting school, our students, who are currently studying Business, Accounting and Financial Studies or Economics, attended the workshop and learnt to develop market entry strategy plans under the guidance of business volunteers. They grasped a basic understanding on the 8 core areas of doing international trade such as market research, positioning, pricing, marketing and sales channels, accessing market entry options and doing financial analysis.
Workshop participants may proceed to compete in the Hong Kong International Trade Challenge in July of 2017.
The Parents’ Gatherings have always been an important channel to facilitate communication and mutual understanding between the school and the parents. On 5th November, it was the F.3 parents’ turn. A total of 108 parents attended the gathering, which included a 100-minute seminar and a 30-minute meeting between form teachers and parents. With the help from teachers, student helpers and volunteers from PTA, the event was concluded successfully with lots of positive feedback from F.2 parents.
