On the 5th of November, we presented prizes to 4 students who participated in the “Computer App Programming Competition” organized by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Our students LUK Cheuk Yin and LIANG Kit Wai from F3A designed a mobile application and device to help guide the people with visual impairments. They won the champion in the junior group. In the senior group, LAW Pui Huen and CHUNG Tsz Wa from F4C designed a smart-home model that could be remotely controlled by a custom made mobile application. They also won the champion. Congratulations to the winners and thanks for making us so proud as Xaverians.
A 3-hour Dining Etiquette workshop was successfully held in the afternoon on 1 st December 2017.
Organized by the Career Guidance committee and Life Learn (HK), the workshop aimed to educate our students about the proper dining manners for Western cuisine in formal occasions. Altogether 32 F.4 and F.5 students joined the event at a restaurant in Wanchai. Other than learning various dining etiquettes, they also got to enjoy a formal 4-course lunch. Having the taught skills practiced, the workshop was definitely a fruitful out-of- classroom learning experience for our students.
1 December was not only the SFX Day of the year, it also marked the home-coming of the graduates of the year 1977 after 40 years of graduation!
The first of the series of home-coming activities was the sharing session after the School Mass by two representatives of the 77’ Class, Mr. Phillip Tang (Arts) and Dr. Vincent Ho (Science). They shared their fond college days and life experience with our boys and inspired them to go for their dreams.
In the evening on the same day, around fifty 77’ Boys came back to SFXC for a warm reunion. The gathering began with a school tour led by Principal Iu around the campus and his presentation to the participants on the school history when all participants were amused by the memorable old photos of the school as well as their own student photos taken in Form 1. It was followed by a presentation of souvenirs, singing of the School Song as well as chanting of the signature three cheers. The highlight of the reunion was the buffet dinner at the cozy Brothers’ Canteen, during which the 77’ boys had the pleasure of having their teachers, including Mr. Yuen Chi Fai, Mr. Anthony Poon, Mr. Chan Cho Hung, Mr. William Wong, Ms. Jannie Tsang and Mr. Lo Chu Kai, to join the occasion. It was definitely a remarkable, memorable and enjoyable night for all participants!
The F.4 Parents Gathering for 2017-2018 was held recently on the 11th of November. 113 parents attended a seminar introducing senior secondary curriculum, graduate pathways and discipline issues normally encountered by senior secondary students. Our School-based Social Worker Ms. Lui, gave a parental talk on being the companions of our children. After the seminar, parents had the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with all the F.4 Form Teachers. We would like to thank our F. 4 parents for their valuable input and feedback for school improvement.
