3 September marked the beginning of scholastic year 12-13. Distinguished graduates returned to the College to inspire our students on how to aim high and embrace diversities while pursuing one’s goals.

Sr Vicky led the entire congregation in contemplating God’s presence and His unyielding blessings on us at all times. But for the unconditional love of Jesus, we have nothing to fear, except exerting our best effort.

Sr Veronica welcomed the newcomers, S1 students and every form, one-by-one. Mr David Lam, our fresh JH and LS teacher spoke a few words during the introduction. The Principal, put emphasis on Soaring High in academic pursuits and Celebrating Diversities in character formation.

Miss Natalie Tsui, awardee of a prominent scholarship to UCL at London, underlined the importance of scheduling for revision. The Head Girl Core Team made an effort to explain their choice of water element in the Student Companion.

Miss Florence Kwok, the Vice-Principal, specified changes in Calendar and reminded the assembly of keeping an eye on Google calendar at Eclass for updates. Mr Anthony Mo gave a general reminder on general discipline; Miss Clara Ho on ECA; Ms Rita Law on website site major updates, including use of announcement and information tabs. Mr Ignatius Chow gave an orientation on the new rooms relocated under the 150th Anniversary Project.

We rounded up with a cheerful choral singing of our School Song before meeting our Homeroom Teachers and Homeroom Partners.

To the pre-S1 students, the outlook of their new school life has become a spectacular one after a fortnight-long intensive programme in English!  The Summer Bridging Course 2012 in July not only gave students a glimpse of life in secondary school, it also allowed them to come into contact with unprecedented and adventurous lessons on Green Education, Dance as well as Junior Humanities.  The design of lessons engaged the young in both exploration of the talk of the town and self-discovery in laughters.  The lectures by teachers from English for Asia also equipped them with practical skills in English.

The climax of the course was the drama presentation given by all classes.  Students got ever closer to each other, demonstrating cooperative class spirit and unabated friendship.  Apart from the glory of winning prizes, students were rewarded with the confident expression via acting and the chance of doing creative rewriting of the ending of the Little Red Riding Hood.

Well geared with skills, new experiences and excitement, our S1 newcomers are all looking forward to arriving at the other side of the bridge – being a secondary student in SHCC!

Our Guest of Honour, Dr Yannie Soo, an alumna specialising in Neurology, presented prizes to those who achieved in different subjects and the top three in the class.

Students who were in the first three positions in their classes, subjects, the aspiring dancers, actresses and artists, together with avid actresses, readers, writers and participants of HK Schools Speech and Music Festival and territory-wide tournaments came under the spotlight on our 152th Prize-giving Ceremony at the College Hall on July 11.

Among them, Jamie Chan, the Head Girl, a fine example of an all-round student with incredible personal qualities, global awareness and leadership, received St Magdalene of Canossa Scholarship sponsored by the Alumnae Association.

In Dr Soo’s address to the school, we learnt how significant it is to review one’s academic performance, identify what goes wrong and act upon what we are weak in. The modest physician shared with us her vpills secret of making progress since she was in Junior Secondary Level.  She attributed her accomplishments to evaluation and persistence to improve.

We would like to congratulate every keen student whose time was spent on developing their talents, improving their knowledge and rendering service to the community last year.
