History and Culture Study Tour to Malaysia

After years of COVID restrictions, our school’s overseas tours have finally resumed. As a start, 30 of our boys, ranging from Forms 1 to 5, went on a history and culture study tour to Malaysia, accompanied by our teachers Mr. Honly Chan and Mr. David Hui.

Not only did our boys have a chance to experience the diversified cultures in Malacca and Kula Lumpur first-hand, but they also visited many famous and significant landmarks, some with strong connections to our Patron Saint, St. Francis Xavier.

The highlight of the tour was definitely the exchange visit to Catholic High School, Petaling Jaya (CHSPJ) which is also a Marist school. During the half-day exchange event, students in both schools enjoyed quality time by engaging in group activities, making friends, exchanging gifts, and having meals together.

We wish to take this opportunity to thank CHSPJ for their hospitality. We hope that our boys have found this tour a meaningful and rewarding one.

Pre-S1 Summer Bridging Course 2023

The Pre-S1 Summer Bridging Course was successfully held from 20th to 28th July. By our tradition, the English classes were taught by our Native English teachers while other lessons, namely Mathematics, Science, History and Geography, were conducted by our Form 6 graduates. 

 

It was encouraging to see that the Form 1 boys enjoyed their time at our school, and they were all active both inside and outside class time. The course came to an end with a graduation ceremony, during which awards to present to our boys with outstanding performances in terms of conduct and application. We hope that the boys still remember what Mr. Kihiro Ng, the principal of the bridging course, said in the closing speech by heart, which reminded them to make the most of the holidays and live out the Xaverian spirit.
