Mid-autumn Festival Gift Presentation

The Mid-autumn festival is here. While everyone goes home and enjoys the festivity with his or her family, our Marist Brothers are still serving far away from home and relatives. That was why the school decided to show them our gratitude by presenting a Mid-autumn festival gift in the morning of the Mid-autumn eve on 4th October. Though the gift itself was nothing compared to the sacrifice made by the Brothers, it represented our heartfelt gratitude and blessings to all the Brothers.

Dear Xaverians, let’s not forget our Marist Brothers in the midst of jubilant celebrations. May we all enjoy this festival in warm love with our families, Happy Mid-autumn Festival!

STEM activity: WWF HK – Mai Po Field Trip

To nurture students’ learning interest, enhance their creativity, collaboration and problem solving skills in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), all F.1 students were arranged a field trip to MaiPo Nature Reserve, which is recognized as a “Wetland of International Importance” under the prestigious Ramsar Convention in 1995.

Throughout October, each F.1 class was led by our science teacher to visit the natural reserve. During their visit, the students were able to observe and appreciate the special ecological features there. They also had the opportunity to conduct a field study, namely “habitat encounter”. Students had to manipulate special equipment and perform a data analysis using professional technology. This was definitely a fun and fruitful learning experience for our F.1 boys.

National Flag Raising Ceremony

As a tribute to the National Day celebrating the establishment of the People’s Republic of China, the school conducted the annual National Flag Raising Ceremony during the morning assembly on 29th September 2017. In his speech, Principal Mr. Iu reminded us that, in spite of any political and ideological differences among ourselves, we should all be proud of our national identity as Chinese from a cultural and historical perspective. After the principal’s address, the flag raising ceremony proceeded solemnly with the national anthem playing in the background.

F.1 Parents Gathering 2017

The F.1 Parents Gathering for 2017-2017 was held on the 23rd of September. 130 parents attended a seminar introducing our academic structure as well as the extra-curricular activities. Parents were also provided with advice to help their sons cope with new school life in secondary school. Our Counselling Master Mr. Ching was there to give a special talk on Positive Communications, which stressed the importance of positive education. After the seminar, parents had the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with all the S.1 Form Teachers while the students visited promotional booths set up by various school teams and clubs. We would like to thank our F.1 parents, whose active participation made the gathering a meaningful and fruitful event.
