Towards The 160th Anniversary of Our School

Dear Sacred Heartists,

 

Our school is preparing to celebrate her 160th anniversary in 2020 by enriching our school archive.

In the world of digital intelligence, we aim at putting a human touch to the official documents we already have. To do this, we intend to build up our oral history through meetings with our alumnae as well as through appealing to all alumnae for school souvenirs or memorabilia in their possession if they are generous enough to part with them and contribute to our school archive.

If you are interested to participate in any way, please click this link to enable us to contact you.

The oral sharing sessions have been scheduled for Saturday afternoons as follows, decade by decade:

 

1990s:     Saturday, 8 December 2018

2000s:     Saturday, 12 January 2019

2010s:     Saturday, 26 January 2019

 

Do join in at our Chi Fu campus (Time: 2.00pm, Venue: Activities Room). We look forward to welcoming you back!

 

Sr Veronica Fok

Miss Wong Yuen Kei, our guest of honour of this year’s annual athletics meet, gave us a message of encouragement from her personal struggle to thrive. Miss Wong has been playing boccia since secondary school. In 2018, she came first in the Fazaa World Boccia Championship in Dubai in the individual B3 class. Yuen Kei is currently placed 12th overall in boccia worldwide. Yuen Kei advocated STAR when sharing the secret of her success: identify special strengths (S), devote time (T), being thankful for support (T), cultivate a positive attitude (A) and remember one’s dream (R). The sheer presence of Yuen Kei has spoken louder than words what it takes to follow one’s dream with an uncompromising attitude.

Despite the unsteady weather in the morning, our students maintained a high spirit in doing their best in the track and field events. To name but a few, hurdles, 100 m race, 400 m race, 1500 m race, javelin throw, discus throw, high jump, long jump and shot put. Apart from that, we were thrilled to see 4x100m relay open for teachers and students and primary school student 4x100m relay. Sacred Heart Canossian School was the second runner-up, Kau Yan School the first runner-up and Sacred Heart Canossian School (Private Section) came first. There were a total of eight primary schools from Hong Kong and Kowloon participating in the primary school relay, giving us a jaw-dropping performance of how fast primary school sprinters can be.

The teacher-student relay was yet another stunning show of strength. Many teachers formed their own teams with students: Alive, Pankhurst, Ben Fun 樂, Nightingale, Bronte, 那些年的2A, 全民造Zinc and 燃燒自己. Miss Hung Ching Ying, Mr Ben Tam, Mr Colin Lai, Mr Ted Chow, Miss Jennifier Ng, Ms Chan Ka Ling, Mr Zinc Tsang, Mr Chan Shing Wai, Ms Elaine Chan, Irene Law, Ms April Cheung and Ms Grace Au-yeung were seen dashing across the track in their relay events.

The audience was elated at the upbeat performance of Secondary 2 students’ Korean drum dance. The staccato rhythm and concerted movements gave us a new perspective of folk dance. Secondary 6’s graduation run with their teachers called for cheers. Every class put on one’s unique costume and run about hand-in-hand, adding to the zeal in the Wanchai Sportsground.

In the prize-giving ceremony, Mr Stephen Lee from the Parent-Teacher Association, Ms Lusanne Hung from the Alumnae Association and Sr Veronica presented medals and trophies to outstanding athletes. House of Keller was the best cheering team as well as house champion of C Grade. House of Teresa seized house championship in A Grade and became the house overall champion. House of Curie was the house champion of B Grade. Individual champions are Chong Yui (C Grade), Cheung Phyllis (B Grade) and Chong Wing (A Grade).

In her vote of thanks, Samantha Lai, Sports society vice-chairlady, expressed her gratitude for the presence of Sr Agnes, Sr Veronica and guests. She attributed the smooth rundown to the guidance of Miss Karen Chung, Miss Hilary Chan and Mr Raymond Fong. She also extended her appreciation for the participation of the athletes from the six houses, the Student Council, the six houses, Girl Guide, Red Cross, Campus TV crew, student photographers, discipline team, the janitor staff and IT technician, student and teacher officials and teachers responsible for coordinating lunch arrangement. Without which, our athletics meet would not have made possible.

 

The certificates of HKDSE2018 are available for collection at the school office during office hours from Monday to Friday.

Uncollected certificates HKDSE 2017 have been already return to HKEAA in October 2018.

Four of our school’s Ambassadors of Learning (AoLs), Sandy Liu, Zinnia Lo, Rachel Shieh and Sunnie Wong of S5C, received the Championship in the Youth Conference co-organised by Plan International Hong Kong and City University of Hong Kong named ‘Fight for Girl’s Justice’ in September 2018.

The subject discussed in this year’s conference was gender violence against girls in Ecuador. In preparing for their groups’ presentation, our AoLs conducted research and attended a UNESCO talk to enrich their knowledge of the inequality of gender, human rights and duty of a global citizen. At the conference, they role-played different stakeholders, like the victim, the victim's family, the government and also the non-governmental organisation in Ecuador.

As the future pillars of the world, the participants pledged to inspire more young people to speak up for the freedom of girls in oppressed countries, advocating the end of violence and the rights to receive education. The conference allowed local youngsters to realise the importance of equipping girls in impoverished countries with skills and support they need, so that they could become a powerful force for changes in their communities.
