The uncollected certificates of 2012 HKDSE and HKALE have already been returned to HKEAA in October 2013.

Music Odyssey is an annual contest for the betterment of students’ capacity in music.  It offers an open door to engage us in music, and most importantly, to enjoy making music with brilliant partners.

This year, we are honoured to have Ms Vivian Ip from Canossa College and Ms Joyce Yu from Heep Yunn School to be our adjudicators. Our guests have always devoted themselves in making music with their comrades as accompanists and partners.

The Music Society wishes to express a big thank you to everyone who has helped and supported the production of Music Odyssey 2013-14 and the development of music in our school. We are looking forward to seeing more students sharing their joy in making music next year!

Students and teachers carried on the fine tradition of our College by staying composed in a religious programme on 20 December. Catholic Formation Core Team turned our eyes from the humdrum routine to that of heavenly hope.  Unlike pagan festivals celebrated elsewhere, our Christmas celebration gives way to Christ the Messiah and the Light of the world.

We took pride in recalling Bible stories about His birth and Mother Mary’s humility in response to God’s plan of redemption. Our Principal, Sr Veronica, gave the audience a quiz about what we had watched and heard during the presentation. That sparked off rounds of cheers.

After that, the Student Council took over the stage and turned the atmosphere into a cool one. Enthusiastic audience lost themselves in interactive games and Santa Claus catwalk competition, an innovation of incredible fun.

Before we finished, we had a special singing session with a priest on drum set and teachers chanting, ‘We wish you a Merry Christmas.’

On this special occasion, we expressed our warmest wishes to two retiring janitor staff. Sr Veronica and Student Council President presented them with small gifts on our behalf. Mui and Kam Lan will be fondly remembered for their kindness and patience.

Before the class party, we had a neat prize-giving ceremony that acknowledged the progress made by our students the previous academic year. The recipients collected their awards from our Principal amidst applause.

By noon, the open playground was filled with fervent supporters, waiting for the Student Council-run teacher-student basketball competition. An irresistible event to many students, the annual treat took many people’s breath away, in one way or another.

On December 13, athletes staged a splendid show of exceptional competence in swimming. House of Curie, House of Pankurst and House of Nightingale claimed House Championship of Grades A, B and C respectively.  Individual Champions came from Nightingale, Pankurst and Bronte but the long-awaited Overall House Championship went to Nightingale. The competitors were of such a high calibre that many heats finished with neck and neck competitors.

Calling our swimming gala a backbreaking event is not bogus. In nearly three hours, most athletes completed more than one heats, be it free style, breast stroke, butterfly or relay. On the spectator stand, cheering teams among the houses were equally level with each other. It took the adjudicators much time to make up their minds. The Brontians eventually had a narrow edge over other teams.

Miss Choi Yan Yin, a distinguished triathlon athlete herself, addressed the audience after prizes were presented. The leading athlete in swimming, biking and running gave us ABC as tips, an acronym which stands for action, believe in the unbelievable, and challenge ourselves at all times. The advice came just in time for us to prepare for yet another challenge, the preparation for our first term examination and in the case of S6, Mock Examination.

Under the coordination of Sports Society, the annual event drew to a close with the presence of Sr Agnes, School Supervisor, Ms Winnie Yu, Chairperson of PTA, and Ms Teresina Chan, Representative of Alumnae Association.
