A Statement Concerning a Recent Incident

The School noted that a photo with inappropriate language was being reproduced in the personal account of a social networking site of one of our teachers, who teaches, inter alia, liberal studies. This incident has since raised public concerns and controversies and has also become a matter of grave concern to the School.

Upon learning about this incident, the School immediately contacted the teacher concerned and made inquiries. He was contrite for his behavior and for causing anxiety among the public. The School was also given to understand that he had since posted a public apology statement on the same social networking site on 5 July 2019, followed by an announcement on resignations from his posts with the Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority and the Hong Kong Liberal Studies Teachers' Association on 7 July 2019 to dispel public concerns.

As an education institution, the School always maintains its impartial and neutral stance on all social issues. Whilst the School respects the different views of our students, teachers, parents and alumnae on various social issues and respects their rights to express their personal opinions, the School also reminds our students and teachers the importance to understand different issues with an objective and rational mind from multiple perspectives and to analyse them with a critical mind. The School places great importance to the above value at all times in the students’ learning process as much as the teachers’ teaching process.

With the love of Jesus Christ as the School’s fundamental teaching philosophy, the School sincerely hopes that our students and teachers express their concerns about the society and all social issues with love and respect, communicate with others with a rational and objective mind, and be ready to embrace diverse opinions in an everchanging world. On the other hand, the School strongly disagrees with the behavior of the teacher concerned who presented his personal opinion in extreme language as his impulsive act went directly against the School’s long-established teaching philosophy. It also regretfully brings negative impact on educating the young generations. The School expresses its deepest solicitudes to all those being affected by this incident.

With regard to this regretful incident, the School issued a letter to all parents on 6 July 2019 to clarify the School’s stance. In addition, we have also invited different stakeholders in the School to share their views on this incident. The Incorporated Management Committee of the School will also follow up on this matter with solemnity.

On August 7, the long-awaited inter-house fashion show, kicked off in the college hall with a splendid Korean dance and cheers. This year’s adjudicator panel, proved to be a stunning team: Mr Lau, co-founder of a local model agency and experienced adjudicator of many international model competitions, Ms Lilith Zhang, an experienced model who has been to different international shows, Ms Fiona Chan, Lecturer at the Department of Design in the Caritas Bianchi College of Careers, and Ms Priscilla So, SHCC alumna and co-founder of a local brand ‘Sketch Around’, Miss Mavis Chan, an iconic alumna who works at 100most, and Mr Alex Fong, actor and youth ambassador.

The event was essentially an art project, in which 72 designers attended workshops on basics of fashion design, turning abstract themes into visual elements. By means of drafts and negotiations with experienced designer, our student designers, ranging from S2-6, came up with their unique designs, overcoming limitations of materials, such as, paper, aluminum foil, plastic, cardboard and wire. The designer from each house was responsible for generating a collection of apparel on a theme: temptation (House of Keller), Fairy Takes (House of Nightingale), Futuropia (House of Pankhurst), Darksiders (House of Teresa) and The Circus (House of Bronte).


With the support of Ms Priscilla Kwok, her Visual Art Team, Art Club, past students and Miss So, the houses have started the project-related workshops since March. This included brainstorming of designs, tailoring, experimenting of materials, modelling, and many details about clothing that brings a message.


Apart from catwalk and dance, the event served as a place for staging team work. Each house has to undertake the production of one’s own show, from sequence of models, to mark-up and hairdo, from stage light to background music, from production of own introductory video to photo-taking of models for a programme. It was truly inter-disciplinary and collaborative.


We are Sacred Heartists. We are Artists’ Our Hearts for Fashion project has made a loud and clear statement.

Shortly after the S1 Registration Day, our Summer Bridging Course began. Within a short period of 10 days, S1 students were able to get a glimpse of what’s in line for their future six years at Sacred Heart. The course aimed at allowing our newcomers to adapt to the new environment, get used to an English medium school and most importantly, gain new insights while having fun during the summer.

Lessons including Mathematics, Science, Life and Society gave students a taste of their upcoming S1 curriculum. Meanwhile, teachers of English led students to immerse into an English-speaking milieu. Beyond the classroom, they had a great time in PE, Dance, and Drama lessons, as well as  expressed their artistic talents in Music and Art lessons. To introduce all students to the rich history of Sacred Heart Canossian College, tutors took them on a school heritage tour during their school history lessons.

After 9 days of lessons, the inter-class drama performance marked an end to the entire course. Students brought out their wildest creativity in rewriting the ending to the Greek Mythology - A Little Errand Girl’s New Dress. Not only did they direct a full six-minute drama by themselves, but they also worked together seamlessly with their classmates in bringing the story to life. The drama was not only an occasion for learning but also helped students build bonds with others.

We hope our S1 students will seize every opportunity to learn and to live life to the fullest.
