Great news! A team of our school’s astronomy enthusiasts from the Astronomy Club won the champion in the Hong Kong Inter-school Astronomy Quest 2019 organized by the Chinese University of Hong Kong on the 6th of July.
Our winning team members included:
O Shun Hang (2B),
Wong Yat Long (5A), and
Lam Ling Shan (6D).
As a part of our effort in promoting STEM education, we will engage in more and more of this kind of activities and competition in the coming year. Congratulations, again to our winners!
Our school Wind Band and the String Orchestra recently participated and performed in the Joint School Music Concert 2019 organized by Queen Elizabeth School (QES). Other performing school bands included those from Maryknoll Convent School (Secondary Section) and Hong Kong Wah Yan College. Our student participants really appreciated this experience to co-perform with peers from other schools and to a wider audience.
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 The rooms have been dormitories for exchange students from other Marist Schools, and the Gallery displays important historical documents of the Marist Brothers and the school.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!
On the11th June 2019, we welcomed the visiting teachers and staff from our sister school in Shanghai, the Beihong Senior High School, which was once also a Marist school. We took our guests on a campus tour and had a professional group sharing session with them. We hope that this kind of regular exchanges between the two schools will continue to strengthen our bond and broaden the horizon of teachers and students from both schools.
