Establishment of Sister-school Bond with Shanghai Beihong Senior High

Towards the end of the Easter holidays, our principal Mr. Iu and vice-principal Mr. Ching led a delegate of 16 students to Shanghai for a 5-day trip between 22nd to 26th April 2019 to officially establish a sister-school bond with the Shanghai Beihong Senior High School. The declaration signing ceremony was held on the 23rd while for the rest of the trip, our students got to tour around the city, attend regular lessons in Beihong Senior High and participate in cultural exchange activities. During their stay in Shanghai, our students lived with their host families along with the Beihong student ambassadors. It was an eye opening experience for our students and the establishment of the sister-school bond was a historical moment signifying a new era of collaboration and exchanges for both schools.

SFX Talentine 2019

As an annual highlight of our school events, the “SFX Talentine 2019”, was successfully held on the 13th of April right before the Easter holidays. Both the afternoon and the evening shows were filled with guests, students, parents and teachers.

Each show included various music performances, dramas, choral speaking, film-dubbing and live sport demonstrations. Each performance provided great amusement to the audience and received thunderous applause in return.

With our principal Mr. Iu leading all the guests, teachers and students in singing the school song, the annual SFX Talentine came to a beautiful conclusion. The event achieved its intended goal to showcase our students’ multitude of talents. It also became a focal point for our alumni, young and old, to keep in touch with the school and with their junior Xaverian brothers.

Physical Education Study Tour (Japan) 2018-2019

The Physical Education Study Tour to Japan in 2018-2019 was successfully held from 12th to 16th April 2019. The tour participants included 29 students and two teachers. The students were tasked to compare and evaluate sports culture and atmosphere between Hong Kong and Japan. During the Study Tour, students had the opportunities to investigate Japanese sports culture. They visited a world-class football stadium Saitama Stadium 2002, the Kamei Katori Shrine worshiping the God of sports, and also attended tailor-made seminars about baseball at the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum and about football at the Japan Football Museum. Students were also given the opportunity to experience the atmosphere of professional sports leagues in Japan by watching a baseball game at the Tokyo Dome and a football game at the Ajinomoto Stadium. On top of that, they experienced first-hand three Japanese traditional sports namely Sumo, Karate, and Kendo. To make their exposure more immersive, our students also attended some regular Physical Education lessons in Nittaidai Ebara High School. We hope that the students can learn from the spirit of Japanese sports that prioritizes respect for competitors, and so become mentally, skilfully and physically stronger young men.
