On 22 December, teachers and students assembled at the college hall to commemorate the birth of Christ. To refresh our memory about why we should celebrate Christmas, Catholic Formation Core Team has prepared for us a Biblical celebration, in which we recaptured the Scripture about the prophecy of the coming of the Messiah, as well as a video clip on Charles Dickens’ Christmas Carol. Hymns were sung in resounding joy about how cheerful the shepherds on watch were when hearing the good news from the angels. God’s redemption promise to mankind has been fulfilled through the birth of His only begotten Son, Jesus in Bethlehem some 2015 years ago. Catholic students led us in prayers for the special needs, from Ebola relief work to peace in the Middle East; from well-being in Hong Kong to teachers’ strength and students’ commitment to improve themselves. It is very different from the pagan celebration elsewhere.
We have the pleasure of having Mr Giovanni Pang of WaZzup, an online radio chief to share with us his reflection on God’s love in God’s family. A devout Catholic, Giovanni, attended World Youth Day in Korea last year. The Hong Kong representative also talked to the Pope about his concern and dream.
After the programme, the Student Council led several amusing rounds of game in the hall with the students. Teachers shared in the videos about their family Christmas celebrations. Sr Veronica, Miss Florence Kwok, Ms Lam Mei Yee, and Ms Priscilla Kwok gave each class a gift of chocolate. A generous past student, Miss Leung, gave each class a big treat for the party in class.
After the class celebration, the teacher-student basketball competition kicked off at the open playground, attracting many supporters.
And she shall bring forth a son: and thou shalt call his name Jesus. For he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done that it might be fulfilled which the Lord spoke by the prophet, saying: Behold a virgin shall be with child, and bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Matthew: 1: 21-23.
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.
