Junior Form Chinese History and Basic Law Competitions

The Chinese History and Basic Law Competitions were recently conducted in F.1 (on 19/3), F.2 (29/3) and F.3 (1/4) to test our junior boys’ knowledge in the field. The events invited one 3-man team from each class to showcase what they had learned from the Chinese History lessons in a competitive way during the Form Assemblies. The results were as follows:

Champion: 1B
1 st Runner-up: 1A
2 nd Runner-up: 1D
Champion: 2B
1 st Runner-up: 2D
2 nd Runner-up: 2E
Champion: 3B
1 st Runner-up: 3A

Congratulations to the winners but remember, being able to demonstrate what you have learnt is more important than gaining victory per se.

F.3 Parent’s Gathering 2019

The F.3 Parents’ Gathering was held on Saturday, 16th March, 2019. Around 140 parents attended the function.

The gathering opened up with a briefing session conducted by our Vice-Principal on the different NSS elective subjects offered in our school and the placement method. We also took this opportunity to introduce our newly proposed elective, Japanese Language as a Category C subject. Our Career and Guidance Mistress then informed the parents about the admission requirements of the different local universities. Afterwards, a sharing session was conducted by our School-based Social Worker and Counselling Master. They shared some tips on what parents could do to help their sons choose the right electives. Most of the parents found the event informative and helpful.

F.1 Admission Interview Day 2018-2019

On 9th March 2019, we interviewed all candidates (currently Primary 6) who applied for our F.1 discretionary places for the 2019-2020 school year. Since we only have 38 discretionary places, these means the competition was really fierce. While the student candidates were having interviews with our teachers, parents were invited to a talk in the hall. Thanks to the combined effort of our staff, student helpers and parent helpers, the F.1 Admission Interview Day was concluded smoothly. Good luck to all the candidates and we look forward to welcoming them into our Xaverian community soon.
