“I have never dreamed of staying at the Ocean Park overnight. I have never thought of sleeping and having dinner next to a school of sea creatures. And I have never tried feeding fishes with bare hands. But because of the Ocean Park Learning Camp, all these become possible.” (Chloe Ha S5E)

A total of 22 S4 & S5 Ambassadors of Learning attended a science exploration camp at Ocean Camp on 16 – 17 March. This tailor-made camp included both Physics and Biology components, which widened their horizons.

In the morning session, the students jumped on the Mine Train and collected data to analyse the thrilling movements. They also used software to investigate the vertical motions of the mechanical rides of the Abyss. Lastly, they constructed their own roller coaster with safety and entertainment concerns. This was awesome experience to the students.

The most memorable experience to the students was camping inside the world-class Grand Aquarium and spending the night unveiling the mystery of the sea bed. At the camp, students also visited the facilities at the Grand Aquarium. It was the first time that they came this close to the spectacular sea creatures. The participants glued their eyes to over 5000 fishes overnight and let the fishes reveal the splendor of creation.

During the camp, the AoL had a glimpse of the operation of Ocean Park, learning how much work the staff has done to make the wonderful performances on stage possible. It is the serious manners the Ocean Park staff share that inspires the young mind of the importance of commitment and zeal.  They have become more ready to follow suit in their studies.

Ms Amy Yuen, Chairperson of SHCC PTA, Ms Teresina Chan, Chairman of Alumnae Association, Sr Veronica, The Principal, Ms Yoshie Lee, Miss Mandy Cheung, Mr David Hung, Student Council Advisers, together with Stephanie Cheng, President of Student Council marked the opening of the annual College Fun Fair with jigsaws of ideal lodgings.

The original design on the banner also came with a set of customized stamps, an ideal collectable for past and current students, parents and friends of the College. It is thrilling to see how innovative our executive members of the Student Council are.

The College Dance Team presented two Asian dances on New Year Wishes and Snowing in the most chic and slim fit costumes.

It has become part of our tradition to involve different clubs and interest groups in cultivating respect and appreciation for one another.  The student-led effort provides room for our student leaders to think independently and work responsibly for games and booth designs.  St Louis School Magic Club, PTA, Hong Kong Red Cross, Green Torch, Photography Society and Social Service Club had many a visitor to try out their games, crafts and food.

Apart from the lucky draws, visitors were treated to lovely music, acoustic songs, breath-taking dance and cool Shaolin Kung Fu show.  The eventful day was the concerted effort of many who worked behind the scene the last few months.

A total of 30 fortunate explorers attended a one-of-a-kind camp at Bradbury Camp in Sai Kung on 28-29 January.

The Science Programme began with an ingenious group competition, in which campers made water rockets with parachute.  The winning team’s shooting device lasted as long as 4 seconds. It was an experiment on balance and operation of one’s innovation.

Before star gazing, Mr. Huey Pang gave a lecture on recognizing constellations in the night sky, telling beautiful stories about some of the constellations, and giving interesting facts about some celestial objects.

At the climax of the camp, the students watched patterns in the night sky, viewing the Moon, Venus, Jupiter and the Orion Nebula using telescopes.

It was followed by an exciting Astronomy Quiz.  It was overcast at dawn.  So Sun Gazing was cancelled. Without the help of Science Society and Physics Department, we would not have such an awesome opportunity to get close to nature. cialis

Rev. Dominic Chan, the Celebrant of this year’s F7 Thanksgiving Mass, expounded on the significance of doing what we have heard using Luke 6: 43-49.  The parable of Jesus shed light on a wise man who builds a house that went deep and put its base on a rock. Despite the storm, the house was not moved.


In response to the message, F7 graduates offered at the altar Noah and his ark.  The wooden ship built by Noah eventually saved his family and a male and female of every type of animal when the world was covered by a flood.  The gift is a grateful expression of everything the school has done to nurture them.


Followed the Mass came the extraordinary programme on what impressed them the last seven years: The hectic morning, the packed schedule during lunch and after school, the fun and nuisance of projects, to name but a few.


Sr Veronica came up with a heart-shaped light as a keepsake for the school leavers. The light reminds them that Jesus is the Sacred Heart, the Emmanuel, the everlasting love, the beacon of our life.


No man, when the light is lighted, puts a cover over it, or puts it under a bed, but he puts it on its table, so that those who come in may see the light. Luke 8:16
