Nebulosa, SHCC Fun Fair 2018 Featured

Co-organised by Parent-Teacher Association and the Student Council, Nebulosa, a student-led fun fair kicked off on 23 March for two days on the campus to raise funds for the S5 Extended Learning Week. In the opening speech, Sr Veronica, our Principal congratulated the students for their enthusiasm in sharing their talents and interests.

An incentive for the Student Council to collaborate with clubs and teams, as well as cultural and academic departments, the annual fun fair served as an open day to connect the public with our College, to reach out to past students, families of current students and friends of the College. For two consecutive days, students learnt to schedule their work, solve problems together and play host as they arranged a range of events and booths for visitors.

It was a red-letter day for our students to share their interests and unleash their potentials: on the ground floor, visitors packed the booths of JA Company, S1 puppet shows, S3’s Enterprise Challenge projects and photography society. There were regular dance and singing performances, and lucky draws. The Visual Arts Team and Art Club’s booths attracted children and parents to try their hands on henna designs and handicrafts. There were workshops on making badges, decorating bottles, and hand sculpture. In covered playground, you would not miss the freshly made snacks and aromatic drinks of home management and housecraft club and Parent-Teacher Association.

On the first floor, the S1 classrooms were turned into places of adventure of Zonta Z Club, Sports Society and Junior Police Call. The Organic Gardening Club ran its own cafeteria with their home-grown produce. In the hall, there was a robotics competition for S2 students to demonstrate their talents in coding and team work. There were two streams of S2 projects this year. One stream on robotics project provided S2 groups with two challenges to overcome: travelling maze and piercing balloons. Another stream on history gave students opportunities to create learning experiences for visitors to deepen their understanding of the ethnic minorities’ customs, religions and major monuments.

On the third floor, there were board games and quizzes to test visitors’ understanding about Chinese culture, first-aid knowledge, historical events, green matters, and eloquence in spoken English. On the fourth floor, visitors had a chance to learn more from Putonghua Club, Chinese Speech and Debating Society, Hong Kong Award for Young People and Girl Guides. This year’s drama performance in the auditorium addressed the value of co-curricular activities in school life.

But for the unyielding support of Parent-Teacher Association, Alumnae Association and advisers of the Student Council, Coalesce and advisers of teams and clubs, this year’s fund fair would not have been such a success.
