On 29 November, Sacred Heart Canossian College Alumnae Association Education and Charitable Fund launched a fund-raising event at Central and Western District Promenade as a tribute to the Sacred Heart Canossian College’s 155th Anniversary.
Established on 14 February 2008, the Fund aims to promote education for youngsters and offer community service to the neglected in society. This year’s charity walk was a dual-purpose one: for one thing, it raised funds for SHCC Heartslink Programme, a project for students from the local low income group. For another, it marked the beginning of a series of anniversary celebration in the following months: Fun Fair in March, Anniversary Celebration Homecoming Concert in April, Thanksgiving Mass in April and Fashion Show in July, to name but a few.
Apart from official presentation of souvenirs and credits to generous alumna-sponsors, the charity walk was an alfresco carnival exhibiting the versatility of Sacred Heartist talents. There were one-of-a-kind student performances including the School Orchestra’s Pirates of the Caribbean, a string ensemble, School Choir’s Recipe for A Song and Praise His Holy Name. Miss Shandy Gan, our gifted singsong- writer- graduate, brought us a treat to To Bossa and a song of her latest film, 點對點.
At the Tamar Park carnival, alumna and current student bodies put up game booths for amusement and medical information booth for offering visitors professional advice. The games booths attracted many a visitor and their families. There were balloon twisting, hand painting and games about our College.
Just few steps away the park at iBakery Gallery Café, the thoughtful alumnae arranged charity sales for raising an extra dollar with their unique souvenirs. iBakery Gallery Café is a social enterprise operated by the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals. The Café employs people with disabilities.
Without the efforts of Alumnae Association, Parent-Teacher Association, the School Choir, the School Orchestra, the Student Council, Art Club and Green Torch, teachers and the janitor, the charity walk-cum-outdoor carnival would not have been through.
What is it about The fault in our stars that engrossed the youngsters? Ask this year’s reading campers and you will find the clue. ‘Gus is so cool!’ may be one of the popular incentives but it turned out that we managed to look closely at other more serious issues addressed in the book, the film as well as Josephine So Y.P.’s 死亡別狂傲.
At HKFYG Jockey Club Sai Kung Outdoor Training Camp, 20 students from S1, 3 and 4 were engaged in silent reading, watching video clips, recalling what they have read about the book and found in the episodes, studying symbols of death, getting inspired by Josephine So’s love for the city despite her cancer-stricken state of health, improvisation, putting ourselves into our parents’ shoes, getting to know more about parent-child attachment, to name but a few. Campers have reflected that love may be burdensome at times but if we get used to empathizing with our parents, we would see the point.
The camp has cultivated in these youngsters a passion for life, for life is worth living to the full, as shown by Augustus and Josephine So. Parents and peers are the best companions of our life, which may be hard and bumpy at times.
