On 18th April, representatives from the PTA showed up in our morning assembly to show gratitude to our teachers. They brought with them various little gifts and unique souvenirs handmade by our parents as a token of their appreciation. It was a meaningful event for teachers, parents and students as we learned to be thankful to the sacrifice made by others.
The F.5 Parents’ Gathering was held on Saturday, 14th April. 122 parents attended the function.
Following the kickoff speech by our principal, our vice-principal gave a briefing concerning the assessments under senior secondary curriculum. A teacher of our Career Guidance Committee then informed the parents about the different pathways the students could choose after their graduation. Afterwards, a sharing session was conducted by our School-based Social Worker Joni Lui. She shared some tips on what parents could do to help their son overcome study stress. Most of the parents found the event informative and helpful.
The event was concluded with a meeting between parents and form teachers. The feedback from the parents showed that the event was very successful and conducive towards bridging communications between the school and our F.5 parents.
