F.6 Parents Gathering 2018-19

The F.6 Parents’ Gathering for 2018-2019 was held on the 21st of October and 97 parents attended it. Our Principal, Mr. Iu welcomed the parents with his meaningful sharing on students’ talents. It followed by an introduction given by our Career Mistress on the JUPAS scheme, the selection of programme choices and other learning experience. To echo Mr Iu’s message, our school Social Worker, Ms. Lui, also pointed out the importance of appreciating students’ talents and how the parents might accompany their sons on the stressful journey of DSE. After the session in the hall, the parents went into classrooms to meet and exchange ideas with the form teachers.

We would like to thank all the F.6 parents, whose care and love to their sons will surely bear fruits.

Visit of Teachers from Assumption Samutprakarn School (Thailand)

On 15th October 2018, teachers from Assumption Samutprakarn (A.S.) School of Thailand visited our school for a cross-cultural teacher development program. Teacher representatives from both schools exchanged professional ideas and the A.S. School teachers experienced the school life of a typical Hong Kong student for one day. It was a fruitful experience for all teachers involved and such kind of professional exchange should be promoted to broaden the horizon of our teachers.

English Ambassadors Outing

On 13th October, Saturday, over 40 English Ambassadors ventured to the countryside for a day filled with new experiences and of course English.

The day started off with a briefing session where the EAs had some ice-breaking games and learned some words for everyday life. They then headed to the farm home of Mr. Rey, our Native English Teacher, for an enjoyable afternoon packed with activities, including American Style Barbequing, English riddle solving and poem writing.

It was surely an unforgettable experience for all the participants and we hope to show the students that English is fun!
