On 28 November, the distinguished alumna, Dr. Elsie Leung, Deputy Director of the Basic Law Committee of HKSAR, Sr. Marie Remedios, the Vice- Provincial Superior of Canossian Missions (Hong Kong and Macau) and the Chairperson of the SHCC 150th Anniversary Project Committee, our School Supervisor, Sr. Agnes and our School Principal, Sr. Veronica attended a one-of-a-kind dance show at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

The school management aside, the Chairman of SHCCAA, Ms Teresina Chan and our Artistic Director and Dance Club Consultant, Ms Luk Yun Mee spared their time to share the joy of the enthusiasts in performing arts.

The Callings was one of the fund-raising prorgammes of our College’s 150th Anniversary Development Project. Two other up-coming events include Heartstrings II, our Christmas Concert on 21 Decemeber, 2010 and Heartitude, the 150th Anniversary CD album.

Robust and refined was the interpretation. The performance was an awesome integration of performing art and sensitivity to cultural differences.  As many as 17 sets of dance, ranging from Chinese, Western, and Korean to social dance were presented in the two-hour long programme. The wide repertoire was the concerted effort of the Dance Team, Backstage Team and many an alumna.

Our College Dance Team has groomed top dancers and choreographers for decades.  It is no surprise that most dances in the evening received honours awards in Schools Dance Festival. Last summer, the Dance Team’s established recognition for originality further attracted the attention of the Shanghai Expo 2010 organising committee, making it possible for our College dancers to showcase their innovative spirit in Shanghai.

The success of the dynamic anniversary dance event would not be possible but for the unyielding support of over 150 dance enthusiasts.  These devoted volunteers came from a good range of backgrounds: primary school students, S1-S5, F6 and F7 students, and members of the Dance Club of the past 42 years.

Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion.  Martha Graham

This year’s Foundress Week embarked on 3 May till 6 May. Its theme is Reach out with care; love in action.  In the opening ceremony, Sr Agnes, the School Supervisor, underscored the value of charity and humility as God’s servants.  She inspired us that we should follow in the footsteps of our Foundress and Canossian sisters who serve the needy in society regardless of their backgrounds.

 

To engage students physically in the theme, the school has arranged a variety of events in the lunch hours. On Tuesday, there were mass games involving collaboration between teachers and students. On Wednesday, students found inspirations from Sr Lucia Cheung’s sharing about what it takes to be a genuine volunteer in out-reaching service. She advised the audience to be observant about one’s surroundings and thankful for God’s strength and courage during the course of service.  On Thursday, Eunice Mok from 5D and Annie Lau from 3D shared their rewarding experiences and vision of community service.  The two enthusiastic volunteers have found joy in giving: Eunice said that she would reserve Tuesday after school for meeting the mentally handicapped, who gave her a relaxing time.  Annie is thinking of recruiting schoolmates to serve with her, teaching the elderly how to communicate with their children and grandchildren with the latest electronic devices. The S4 classes presented their reflections about their class-based service day on display boards at the entrance. We have learnt from their photos and messages the significance of reaching out.

 

On 6 May, the Catholic Formation Core Team invited Fr. John Kwan, Parish Priest of St. Margaret's Church, to officiate at a Thanksgiving Mass. In line with the theme of love in action, the student representatives led the congregation to reflect on important teachings from the Scriptures: Isaiah 58:6-11, Gospel of St. John 12:23-26 and St Paul’s Epistle to the Philippians 2:5-11.

 

Father Kwan appealed to our experiences of being loved and practising love.  His sermon concerns a joyful reception of our schoolmates, school teachers and staff, family members and neighbours.  As stewards of love, we have to furnish our lives with helpfulness, cheerfulness, forgiveness and an incentive to fulfill our responsibilities at school and spend time interacting with our parents and siblings.

 

Make your own the mind of Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, did not count equality with God something to be grasped. But he emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, becoming as human beings are; and being in every way like a human being, he was humbler yet, even to accepting death, death on a cross. (Philippians 2:5-7)
