The Student Librarian Association has created a unique opportunity for engaging youngsters in expressing their likes and dislikes at their fingertips, literally. The LIKE event, which kicked off last month, has made it possible for Sacred Heartists to browse through some recommended titles, mostly fiction for teenagers and click their favourite ones.
At present, the most popular ones are Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight, Danny Collins’ Vanished - The truth about the disappearance of Madelenie McCaan, Anthony Horowwitz’s Ark Angell, as well as Alyson Noel’s Evermore.

On 15 September, 2011, the Principal, College teaching staff and students gathered at the playground for the raising of school flag and Canossian Missions flag, followed by a Eucharistic Mass in the Hall.
Father Alejandro Mēndez Pērez performed the liturgy and shared with us his experience in overcoming the challenge of Cantonese. The amusing anecdote is all about the joy of experimenting through trial and error and through peer support. Father Alejandro ended his sermon with an assignment for us, Do our Best.
During the Mass, we presented the Student Companion, a handbook capturing the main themes, important dates of student activities, and vision of Canossian Education, to God, as a token of our readiness to entrust every plan to His Hands. The picture of Jesus and His sheep, another offering, engraves in us the theme of this year’s Catholic Activities, Follow Me, Follow Jesus in every way.
The installation of student leaders came after the Mass. The Principal, the Vice-Principal, and the Assistant Principal officiated at the ceremony. Empowered with blessings from the congregation, the Head Girl Core Group, led by Jamie Chan, the Head Girl, received their badges first. Next, the House Captains and their Deputies received their badges and House Flags. Then, the Head Prefect, Michelle Mok, and the Deputy Head Prefects, Jacqueline Chan and Sandy Sze received badges.
