Phase II of Fund Raising Campaign to Revitalize the Brothers’ Quarters

Dear Alumni & Parents,

Phase II of Fund Raising Campaign to Revitalize the Brothers’ Quarters

During the celebration of jubilees of both schools a few years back, alumni and the Principals of both schools voiced their concern about the poor living conditions of the Brothers. Thanks to the donations collected in the previous years, Phase I of the revitalization project has been completed, including renovation of four residence rooms for the Brothers on 3/F, SFXC and completion of the Heritage Gallery on 4/F, SFXC. The rooms have been dormitories for exchange students from other Marist Schools, and the Gallery displays important historical documents of the Marist Brothers and the school.

To complete the 12 remaining residence rooms for the Brothers, Phase II of the fund-raising campaign was officially kicked off at the Home-coming Concert on 29 December, 2018 (Saturday). Based on the experience of Phase I, it costs around $150,000 to $200,000 to renovate one room.

The school would like to appeal to all Alumni for their generous donation. Receipts will be issued for tax exemption purposes. As a token of gratitude, the following souvenirs will be presented. Donation of $5,000 A commemorative watch Donation of $10,000 or above A commemorative music box

The revitalized residence will not only provide our Brothers a better living condition, but also make it possible for organizing different alumni activities, functions, meetings and exchange programmes with other Marist Schools. Please kindly support this meaningful project!

Catholic School Teachers’ Day 2019

On the 16th May 2019, after the morning session of our 3rd TDD, our teachers attended the Catholic School Teachers’ Day 2019 held at the AisaWord-Expo in the afternoon. This was a territory-wide event joined by all Catholic schools in Hong Kong. The theme of the event this year was “Let the children come to me!” from the Bible (Mark’s gospel 10:14). Let’s pray that all teachers in Hong Kong can bear Christ’s love for children when treating their students.

3rd Teachers Development day 2018-2019 (TDD 3)

On the 16th May 2019, we co-organized our 3rd TDD with our brother school, SFXS Tsuen Wan. In the morning session, teachers from both school attended a Marist Talk to recalibrate our focus as Marist educators. Then, the teachers were engaged in a health workshop where they learn to avoid and deal with chronic pains, which are very common among teachers in Hong Kong. The TDD were concluded by a joyful feast where teachers could relax and enjoy a much deserved appreciation meal from the school.

For the afternoon session, our teachers joined the Catholic School Teachers’ Day 2019 held at AisaWorld-Expo.
