On 1 September, we arranged the reopening of the new academic year online through video broadcast. We celebrated the reopening of the new academic year with City of God, prayers and Bible readings.

After introducing the new staff, Sr Veronica, our Principal, gave a keynote address on the school theme, Celebrating the past with Gratitude, Embracing the future with Hope and sharing our life in Love. She started with a recap on why the past history of our 160 years of establishment is worthy of thanksgiving: a record of love and courage the Canossian Missionary demonstrated in time of prevalent destitution, wars and social unrest. Then our Principal moved on to the indelible endurance these Italian sisters exhibited as they aced the hard times, all for the love of local people and for God they served.

Sr Veronica further edified us to live up to the theme of gratitude, hope and love the way our former leaders exemplified. She made a note on cultivating ourselves to be autonomous life-long learners with prospects.

Student involvement is an integral part of our school development. There are several instances. In the first place, the 160th anniversary logo is the work of Calesta Ng, who won the 160th anniversary design competition last year. The second student contribution concerns the publication of our Student Companion. It is more than a schedule book. In their collaborative effort, our S6 Head Girl Core Group members designed the 2020-21 version upon our House System. The publication introduces our six houses as well as the qualities of imminent female leaders each house aspires to be develop: creativity in the Bronte sisters, intellectual competence in Marie Curie, perseverance in Helen Keller, altruism in Florence Nightingale, justice in Emmeline Pankhurst and compassion in Mother Teresa.

Miss Florence Kwok further updated us on 160th anniversary celebratory programmes, student welfare and scholarships. Mr David Hung gave a briefing on online learning and teaching. Mr Anthony Mo reminded us of matters related to schedule and rules. Ms April Cheung gave us advice on why and how to establish emotional connections. Miss Clara Ho explained club and student activities matters.

We marked the end of the online reopening ceremony with our School song- ‘In voices strong we sing together, united in the Sacred Heart…In friendship true, in mutual love, our common end let us attain; of Sacred Heart School worthy prove in all the trials, in every strain.’

The Department of Health advises school to take precautionary measures to minimize the risk of contracting and spreading Severe Respiratory Disease associated with a Novel Infectious Agent. To safeguard your children’s health, please be more alert to your children’s health condition, maintain a hygienic household, and co-operate with us by reminding your children to observe personal hygiene. You are also kindly requested to take the following measures.

I. Prevention Measures

A. Stay Alert

Good personal and environmental hygiene should be maintained. For the Severe Respiratory Disease associated with a Novel Infectious Agent updates, Please visit Centre for Health Protection website . https://www.chp.gov.hk/en/features/102465.html

(a) Students/staff who had travelled to those affected areas in the past 14 days; they should notify school and observe closely their health condition. Within the 14 days of returning from those affected areas, they should measure their body temperature every day before going to school. If feeling unwell, they should seek medical consultation promptly and should not go to school.

(b) Students/staff returning from affected areas should consult doctors promptly if they have symptoms of Severe Respiratory Disease associated with a Novel Infectious Agent, seek medical advice and inform the doctor of the travel history and wear a surgical mask to help prevent spread of the disease.

B. Maintain Good Personal Hygiene

(a) Perform hand hygiene properly before touching your eyes, nose or mouth; before eating; after using the toilet; and touching public installations or equipment such as escalator handrails, elevator control panels or door knobs.

(b) Wash hands with liquid soap and water properly whenever possibly contaminated.

(c) When hands are not visibly soiled, clean hands by rubbing them with 70- 80% alcohol-based handrub as an effective alternative.

(d) Cover nose and mouth with tissue paper when sneezing or coughing. Dispose soiled tissue paper properly into a lidded rubbish bin and wash hands with liquid soap and water afterwards.

(e) Students/staff should wear a surgical mask if develop fever or respiratory symptoms, wear a surgical mask, refrain from work or attending class at school and seek medical advice promptly.

(f) N95 respirators are generally not recommended for use by general public in community settings because special training is required for proper wearing and removal of the mask. Otherwise the infective risk due to inadequate protection and contamination may be ironically increased.

(g) Do not share personal items such as eating utensils and towels.

Please inform the school immediately if your children have contracted any communicable disease. For any enquiries, please call the school at 25506111. Thank you for your kind cooperation.


Bears in Mind, a Sacred Heartist JA company, was awarded a championship after rounds of training and hands-on experience of operating a company the way it is in the business world. Our students excelled in both social awareness and use of online promotion and selling platforms in the business project.


In fact, the charitable business project won two other prizes, The Best Social Innovation Award and Digital marketing Award, in recognition of the project group’s persistence in overcoming difficulties during their attempt to transform the sale mode from a physical trade fair into online marketing and transactions. The students took a long time to shoot a meaningful video that drew the public’s attention to their vision and commitment. The business project certainly offered our students an opportunity to put their entrepreneurial vision into practice and a test to their endurance.
