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
Fancy carrying your magnifier around and poke your nose into clues on an express with 12 special passengers? Try your luck next year. A total of 24 students have snatched the opportunity to do so, spending their Saturday and Sunday on developing their inquiry mind.
At HKFYG Jockey Club Sai Kung Outdoor Training Camp, the keen learners were involved in puzzles and investigations into who the murderer was. The murder scene was set up in the room for gathering forensic evidence. Interview notes, comic book excerpts and video clips were given to provide them with more ideas about Mr Ratchett, and his connection with the Armstrong family, whose little girl, Daisy was killed in a notorious kidnap in the States.
If you wish you find out more about Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express, there are copies of comic book and the novel, together with a DVD at the library. Join the detective Poirot for a brain-racking inquiry, dare you?
