Study Trip to Shanghai 2016

With the aim to provide a glimpse of the national state of China, the Unified Association of Kowloon West organizes study trips to various parts of China annually. This year, the destination for the visit was Shanghai. Around 130 students from the Yau Tsim Mong district, including 10 from SFXC headed by the principal himself, took part in this event.

Though the trip encountered a minor setback by a 7-hour flight delay in the departing trip due to poor weather, the rest of the trip went smoothly. The group visited various landmarks in Shanghai, included the National Art Museum of China and the newly established Disneyland. The students also had exchange experience with students in esteemed institutes such as the Fudan, Tongji and Shanghai Jiao Tong University. On 1st July, our Xaverians also got the opportunity to visit and had exchanges with Bei Hong Senior High School (formerly the St. Francis Xavier’s College of Shanghai).

All students returned safely on 4th July with fond memories to savor for years to come.

Classroom Display Board Competition

In recent weeks, all classes from Form 1 to 4 had been very dedicated 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)” and “Responsibility (F.4)”. The students were well-coordinated as they labor tirelessly for the project. The moment of truth came when the adjudicators - Mr. Iu, Mr. Leung Man Fai, and Ms. Ki - reviewed the students’ work on 19th April, 2016.

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 determined a winner for each form – F.1B, F.2C, F.3B and F.4B. Each winner would be awarded a certificate and a present.

Congratulations to the winning classes and big thanks to all the participating classes! Thank you for your effort and the wonderful demonstration of your creativity. Winning is not the priority here. It is the process and the memorable experience that counts when the glory of winning fades into the shadow of time. Furthermore, the friendships you gain in this competition will accompany you to your future days in SFXC and beyond.
