Earthlings at JA Company Trade Fair

On the 10th February 2018, “Earthlings”, our student firm for the JA Company Program (JACP) this year, successfully put up its booth in the trade fair at Kwun Tong Vessel.

The event started with an opening ceremony in which our principal Mr. Iu received an award for the school's continuous support of the event for 5 years.

The main product of Earthling was EcoSac, an smart water bottle bag designed and handmade by our students. The product attracted a lot of customers' attention as they were amazed by the students' ability to integrate technology into eco-friendly materials.

The directors, led by CEO Poon King Leong from class 5B, completed their presentation in the JACP semi-final competition during the afternoon session. The team credited the two Business Advisors Paul Ho and Francis Chan, both our alumni, for their endless patience and kind support in each and every way.

Towards the end of the event, a group of fellow Xaverians and alumni surrounded the team and sang the school song together to celebrate their months of hard work.

Classroom Display Board Competition 2017-2018

Right before the Chinese New Year holiday, all class in Form 1 to 5 have been very busy in decorating their classroom display boards for the captioned competition. The themes of the competition for each form were: “Self-discipline” (F.1), “Respect” (F.2), “Confidence” (F.3), Responsibility” (F.4) and “Resilience” (F.5). To determine the winners, we had invited our principal Mr. Iu, vice-principal Mr. Leung Man Fai and our Visual Arts panel mistress Ms. Ki to be the adjudicators.

The evaluation was based on three domains – theme and content (40%), visual layout (40%), and originality and creativity (20%).

After careful considerations, the judges finally chose a winner for each form, which were F.1B, F.2C, F.3E, F.4A and F.5C. Each winning class was awarded a certificate and a present. The effort made by other non-winning classes was also commendable. After all, winning is not the priority in this competition. It is the process and the memorable experience working as a team that counts. So, good job, all F.1 to F.5 boys! You have made yourselves and your classes proud.
