From 2 May to 8 May, we have realized how to make Jesus known and loved via a variety of activities.
On our campus, we have service project boards capturing S4 students’ reviews of what they have learnt from their service projects for the children, minority groups, the elderly and adults with disabilities to learn. In class, students drew and put down words in letters for St Magdalene about how inspiring her life was to them.
Every morning, we said special prayers about our Foundress. We heard of ways of making Jesus known and loved from our guest speakers, Sr Bernadette, our former Principal, Sr Veronica, our current Principal, Sr Catherine, the teacher of Sacred Heart Canossian School, Ms Jacqueline Au Yeung, as well as students from S1B.
On 8 May, we hoisted the flag of Canossian Daughters of Charity and that of our College. In the afternoon, we gathered in the Hall, a ritual of Foundress Week Celebration to refresh our understanding of what is special about being a student of the Canossian family.
To make Jesus known and loved is the theme of this year’s celebration. Hence we were reminded of the many an opportunity to achieve this: at home, among our friends, and concern for the world. Throughout the years, Canossian educators have committed themselves to make Jesus known and loved and benefit students with education in the formation of the heart. Many graduates have groomed to be global citizens with sound moral and religious values, compassionate in serving the school and the community. To name but a few, Sr Ida and Sr Bernadette, our former Principals, Mrs Anson Chan, Former Chief Secretary for Administration, Prof. Rosie Young and many more.
Among them, Dr Yannie Soo, the first volunteer frontline physician during the outbreak of SARS at the Prince of Wales Hospital, attended our Celebration. The Associate Consultant at Prince of Wales spoke of the impact of Sacred Heart education on her, sharing her vision of life, the importance of cherishing what we have and making use of them to help those in need.
The first Post-Competition Concert organized by Music Society drew to a successful close on 30 April 2013 in the presence of honorable guests, alumnae, parents, teaching staff and current students.
The opening of the concert was marked by the school song, led by the school orchestra and choir under the baton of Mr Ho-Yin Kwok. Our young music makers showed their joy and passion in making music with our School Orchestra, Choir and the Chinese Instrumental Ensemble, with their competition pieces in the 65th Hong Kong Schools Music Festival and various music competitions this academic year.
We are very honoured to have our choral partner, Wah Yan College Kowloon Choir as our guest performer, to perform a variety of sacred music with our Senior and Junior Choirs. Our singers shared their liking in singing and praised our Heavenly Father with the musical talents He has given us.
A big thank you to everyone who has helped and supported the production of Post-Competition Concert 2013 and the development of music in SHCC! We are looking forward to have more chances to share our joy in making music in the future!
