Water Rocket Competition (F.2)

On July 7th July 2017, an exciting Water Rocket Competition was held in the school playground as a post-examination activity for all the F.2 boys. They first attended a lecture learning all the fundamental physics principles behind rocketry. Then they were put in groups of 4 to5 students. Each group had to design their own water rocket that would propel as far away from the ground as possible based on what they had learned. The objective of this activity was to raise students’ interests in science and to encourage them to put “Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics” (STEM) knowledge into application. Despite the hot weather of summer days, all the participating students and teachers really enjoyed the fun and the water splashing.

Seminar for F.6 students

Before the fateful DSE Result Releasing Day, our school put together a seminar day for our F.6 students on the 7th of July. Teachers from our Counseling Committee and Careers Guidance Committee helped the attendees to learn how to technically, tactically, mentally and emotionally prepare for the release of DSE results. The F.6 boys also got to share their concerns and worries. The event was successfully concluded followed by an evening event for the F.6 parents.

Hong Kong Interschool Astronomy Quest 2016

Great news! A team of our school’s astronomy enthusiasts from the Astronomy Club have won the champion in the Hong Kong Inter-school Astronomy Quest 2016 organized by the Chinese University of Hong Kong on the 2nd of July. As a part of our effort in promoting STEM education, we will engage in more and more of this kind of activities and competition in the coming year.

STEM in mBot Workshop

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education has become a focus of the recent EDB curriculum reform. Catching this wave of educational trend, the school joined the mBot Workshop organized by the City University of Hong Kong. Our students from F.3 and F.5 participated in the robot assembling and programming activities with the objectives to program the robots to play soccer and move alone direction lines automatically. Our students really enjoyed the activities and the hands-on experience. The school will surely put together more STEM programs like this in the coming year.
