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.

We look forward to your participation.

Between 28 January and 1 February, Green Torch took the lead to engage students in a range of activities on green life. The aim of the initiative is to raise students’ awareness towards environmental protection. Participants were invited to watch a film or a drama production on environmental protection. Or else, they could try their hands in a DIY lip balm workshop, or ride an energy-generating bicycle to generate as much energy for school consumption as they can in an inter-class competition.

On 29 January, students have to complete a handout after watching a film featuring wildlife at Geography Room. On 30 January, a lip balm workshop literally offered participants a hands-on experience on how to mix a balm of with their own formula.

On 31 January and 1 February, there was an energy-generating bicycle riding competition for Green Prefects to involve a classmate or a teacher to generate as much energy as they can by biking. On 1 February, an interactive drama for S4 was produced at the auditorium to promote sustainable development.

Father Franco Mella gave our students plenty of food for thought on 21 December, the day we celebrated the birth of Christ Jesus in college hall. When asked by Ms Priscilla Kwok, our Assistant Principal, how we could prepare for the birth of Christ, Father Mella suggested giving specific support for classmates with learning difficulties by forming small teaching groups in our own classes. Christmas is a time of family union and paying visits to the grandparents and those who live alone.

Unlike other celebrities of the town, local media captured a different public figure who roamed the street for the interests of the deprived in China and Kong Kong. According to a feature article dated on September, 2015 in SCMP, ‘Father Franco Mella on 40 years helping downtrodden in Hong Kong and China’, we were informed of how active he had been involved in campaigning for boat brides to be given right of abode. Such was but a sketch of his fighting for human rights. The presence of Father Mella has given our Christmas hall programme an entirely different meaning and depth.

The organising committee of this programme integrated thought-provoking questions to evoke in us a sense of wonder about what Christ’s birth was meant to be and its relevance to us. It was achieved through film clips, video clips, Bible readings and interview with Father Mella.

After the programme, it was Sr Veronica’s time with us. Our Principal involved us in quizzes and class-based competition, heightening the atmosphere.

We had a wonderful time of class party, board decoration presentations and the annual teacher-student basketball competition. The campus was furnished with Christmas décor and faces of past students and teachers’ family members and children. It reminded us of the true meaning of giving-and-taking as a family in Jesus.

Sr Veronica, Ms Priscilla Kwok, Sonia Chow, the Head Girl and Cherry Chung, the President of the Student Council marked the opening of the Electricity Generating Bicycles on 11 December. By installing the bicycles, we aim at raising students’ awareness of energy saving and environmental protection. Besides, it also gives all of us a chance to keep ourselves healthy and at the same time produce electricity.

The opening ceremony was live-streamed so that students could witness this important moment which marked the joint effort of teachers and students in saving energy and hence protecting the environment. Tips and reminders on being environmentally-friendly citizens were given in the college hall after the ceremony. Students and teachers are welcome to help generate electricity by riding on the bicycles.
