Congratulations to four S3 students who won the first runner-up in Hong Kong Primary and Secondary Schools STEM Robotics Competition on 11 March! Our team impressed the adjudicators with their problem-solving and logical thinking skills; and their ability to communicate and cooperate effectively. In the first round of the competition, their robots demonstrated an exceptional sensitivity to colour and pattern, pushing many color cubes to the destination zone in the shortest time. In the second round, our S3 students applied Kiddo Code app to push the cubes to opponent's zone. They ultimately came second with their total scores in the two rounds. The event was co-organised by CUHK, HKedCity and HK Computer Society.

Cultural game, cultural quiz, school hunt, doge ball match...Thrilling activities came one after another every day during the Global Awareness Week, organised by the Ambassadors of Learning and Gifted Education Team from 26 February to 2 March 2018.

Throughout the joyous and fruitful week, our students seized various opportunities to learn beyond the classroom and know more about gender equality, as well as ethnic stories, and interesting traditions from people all around the world. In lessons, they exchanged opinions on different topics and broaden their horizon concerning those issues they discussed, everyone had a great time chatting with the foreign guests.

Putting our schoolmates' global awareness to a test, the Quiz Day and Cultural Games about different countries were held. Then there came the dodgeball match which challenged our SHCC team members to play against the foreigners’ team. The exciting match has certainly attracted a lot of students to watch and cheer for both teams! We certainly could not forget about one of the highlights of the week---the Global Village. Snacks from around the globe were displayed in the open playground, with loads of students flocking to have a bite. With these exotic cuisines, it was definitely an adventure for our tastebuds! To wrap up the Global Awareness Week, the Ambassadors of Learning also organised a farewell programme to wish our S6 schoolmates all the best in their DSE. Amidst the joyful atmosphere, our guest Jey blasted into a song and gave us a wonderful concert.

With various activities and educational games, the Global Awareness Week surely brought a smile to our faces and nurtured us with more global knowledge. We hope that all students enjoyed this eventful week and we hope that the Global Awareness Week will keep on improving as the years go on!

The Catholic Formation Core Team prepared a thoughtful programme on 22 December, 2017 in the college hall. This year’s theme is Thy Will be Done. The Team hoped to bring out a message that to love our neighbours is as easy as to share what we have with those in need.

Through prayers, drama and carols, students and teachers were engaged in contemplative rounds of deep thoughts about the meaning of Christ’s birth to us, the redeemed. In the context of Christmas, Miss Clara Ho and Virginia Uhi of S5E directed a play, Stone Soup story, to set the tone of sharing.

Ms Catherine Chan, our guest speaker, brought us her personal story and insights into what we can do for the city’s urban poor. Unlike many community service projects, Ms Chan and her fellow volunteers’ small matches project, aims to give warmth, smiles, and restore the dignity of the least noticeable in our very neighbourhood.  Ms Chan’s sharing started with pictures and figures about the fact that we have long forgotten a large population of aging scavengers in our neighbourhood. Day in day out, the elderly cardboard collectors live on whatever they can have access to in the dump, or earn a living by waddling two MTR stations away for cardboard worthy of as little as $0.5 per kg. Ms Chan sent us a loud and clear challenge to take a close look at who they are, get to know them one-by-one, answer their needs in a personal way, give them exactly what each of them needs: be it a cutter, a pair of fitting shoes, painkillers, a pair of labour gloves, a hat or hand cream. She also invited us to talk to them, lend a hand whenever possible, or give them a cheerful smile. Above all, Ms Chan has raised our awareness to do whatever we can for those in difficult conditions.

Followed the Catholic Formation Core Team’s programme, the Student Council continued the message of using our resources to do magic and cheer people up. The Student Councillors showed us a video clip on where our schoolmates’ boxes of love have gone and how surprised children in the East Asian villages have shown seeing the unexpected boxes for them. Two class representatives then shared the difficulties of collecting toothbrushes and daily necessities for their children in mind. They appreciated the cooperation and generosity of their classmates in making it happen.

After the sharing, the Student Council arranged a game session, in which class representatives from S1-6 involved their homeroom teachers in making guesses about Mr Wilfred Leung, Miss Maria Lam, Miss Stephanie Chan and Mr Joe Wong’s stories. Sr Veronica, Miss Florence Kwok, Ms Lam Mei Yee, and Ms Priscilla Kwok presented chocolates for all classes as Christmas gifts. Sr Veronica also gave a quiz on major ideas about Christ’s birth, and presented prizes for the winners.

In the end, the Principal, the Vice-principals and Assistant Principal, teachers, Student Council members and the organizing committee of the day’s programme sang we wish you a merry Christmas before the class party. Teacher adjudicators visited different classes and picked the most impressive designs for Christmas board decorations. There was a friendly match between the teachers and students in the playground after the class party. The campus was filled with colourful Christmas decorations, from snowflakes to stained glass.

But for the efforts of the Student Council, the backstage team, the school artists and art club members, the janitors and the Catholic Formation Core Team, our Christmas celebration would not have been such a meaningful one.

Sports cultivate our resilience to adversity and shape our minds to think in a positive light, according to Mr Wong Chun Yan, our guest of honour of this year’s annual swimming gala.

The event witnessed how the old hands at the game demonstrated their edge over the other not so experienced newcomers to the competition. There was a range of styles for keen swimmers to choose from: butterfly, breast stroke, free style and back stroke.  Among the events, the open grade relay and medley relay attracted some of the cream of different houses to flex their muscles. Their parents and coaches were out watching their all-out effort, slashing clean through the waters.

At the opening ceremony, Sr Agnes led the prayer and announced the official opening of the day’s programme.  Throughout the competitions, the six houses roared with all their might to cheer their own members, as well as impress the adjudicators for the best cheering team award.  Ms Elea Chan, from the Alumnae Association, Mr Kelvin Lee, the PTA Chairman and Sr Veronica took turn to present the trophies and medals to the winners. Mr Wong Chun Yan, a Hong Kong delegate of at Asian Championships and Fina World Championships, and a local athlete distinguished in breast stroke, presented prizes to inter-house winners before addressing the school.

After the fierce rounds of neck-and-neck competition, this year’s individual champions eventually emerged: Wong Po Yin, Chan Tsz Yin Cary and Chow Wing Yan Yen were crowned individual champions of C, B and A Grade respectively. House of Curie became this year’s C grade overall champion with their stunning results. To our amazement, House of Keller seized the titles of the overall championships of both B and A Grade. As if icing on the cake, House of Keller, who took down top prizes of two grades, turned out to be the best cheering team of the day as well. Who is there to get in the way? Good for you! House of Keller!
