14 principals from the Yau Tsim Mong District School Liaison Committee paid our principal, Mr. Iu, a visit on 22 July 2021 to celebrate his retirement starting from Sept 2021. Let’s pray that Mr. Iu can enjoy his retirement after laying down his heavy burden as the principal of SFXC.
The day for the release of HKDSE result is imminent. On 17th July 2021, our school put together a seminar to prepare our F.6 students and their parents for the upcoming “big day”. The morning session of the seminar was to prepare students for various possibilities of HKDSE results. They were informed of the multiple study pathways and numerous alternative options. They were also psychologically prepared for the possible ups and downs, and any potential surprises.
In the afternoon, a total of 62 parents of our F.6 boys attended the online session. The participants were equipped with the knowledge to better support their sons on the “big day”. They were also given an opportunity to voice their concerns and worries. The overall atmosphere of the whole-day event was positive and the responses from the participants were very good.
Let’s cheer up our F.6 boys and give them all the support they need for a very emotionally challenging day on the 21st of July.
The Form 1 Summer Bridging Course 2021 began on 14 July, 2021. The 7-day course, taught by Native English Teachers and our Form 6 graduates, was tailor-made with an aim to accustom the newly admitted Form 1 boys to the English learning environment and school life in St. Francis Xavier’s College. During the course, not only did the boys learn different academic subjects using English as the medium of instruction, but also experience what our school life would be like, including saying the Prayer together at the Morning Assembly.
The pandemic cannot stop the friendship between our students and the students of Shanghai Beihong Senior High School (SBSHS). Members of our student union gathered at the Lecture Room on 7th July and joined an online meeting with their counterparts from Shanghai.
The virtual event was kicked off by our principal Mr. Iu’s welcome speech, highlighting our connection with SBSHS, which began in 1874 inside the heritage building of SFXC, Shanghai. Afterwards, the school representative of SBSHS Ms. Lui welcomed us and expressed their wish that the exchange programme would continue to strengthen the bond between the students of the two sister schools. For our part, we started with introducing our school history. Thanks to panoramic photography, we could take the students of SBSHS to tour around our school premises virtually. The SBSHS students took their turn to introduce us their wonderful school life with a wide range of activities that enriched their studies. We concluded the event with meaningful dialogues between the students from the two schools.
Good times pass by so quickly. We are looking forward to meeting the students from SBSHS in Shanghai or in Hong Kong very soon.
