This morning, Mr. Shing shared a message on Mobile games addiction. He was alarmed by the fact that some students were too immersed in the mobile game worlds that they neglected their studies, social lives and even sleeps. He didn’t blatantly condemn playing mobile games but he did suggest us to be wise, which could simply be translated into “study first, play afterwards”. Please take Mr. Shing’s advice and “be wise”!
This morning, Mr. Leung delivered a message on goal setting. He used the scientific method in discovery, the constant repetition of attempts and revaluations, as an analogy to achieving goals in academic improvement. He also encouraged us to pursue personal growth to enhance our physical, mental and emotional attributes. As the 2nd term has begun, let us take Mr. Leung’s message seriously and re-examine our goals, and more importantly, re-double our effort in achieving them.
This morning, Mr. Pong delivered a message on confidence. It can be summarized into two points: 1) confidence is accumulated as we upgrade ourselves; and 2) confidence is strengthened as we have more safety nets through relationship building. We all know confidence is important to us, but what we don’t know is that it is not necessarily an innate personal quality. As Mr. Pong put it, it can be built up. So build your confidence today by acquiring knowledge and friendship more actively.
This morning, Mr. Iu gave a message on “the right attitude” towards paper discussion. He used a story about how an engineer working for Mercedes-Benz solved an almost undetectable technical issue for their newest car model using to his persistence and serious attitude. Mr. Iu encouraged all students to use the same kind of attitude, almost like a coroner doing autopsy, in all paper discussion sessions. Let’s take this message seriously and learn from our mistakes. Yes, marks are important, but learning from mistakes is even more important, because that will help us get higher marks in the future.
This morning, as the 1st day of the last week for this school term, Mr. Iu gave us a message on the importance of facing setbacks in life. He used a story about a young man with not much education facing an unfair treatment in his work. This bad treatment somehow became the wakeup call for the young man and spurred him to return to study and eventually to financial success. Mr. Iu didn’t simply use the story to encourage us to put up with setbacks in life, he also wished that setbacks would become the strong medicine that cure our laziness in studying. Let’s hope that we don’t have to come to taste that bitter life medicine in order to realize the importance of studying hard. As the 1st term exam draws close, let none of us take Mr. Iu’s reminder lightly.
