F.1 Induction Day Camp 2018-2019

On 28th August 2018, we held our F.1 Induction Day Camp for the new batch of F.1 students. Early in the morning, they gathered in the classrooms with their classmates, form teachers and Big Brothers to get acquaintance with each others.

Following a warm up session, they engaged in challenging team building activities in the school hall. After that, the Big Brothers took the F.1 students to explore the nearby district. At the same time, they had to choose their lunch carefully in order to win the “Healthy Lunch Competition”, which aimed educating teens the importance of having healthy diets.

In the afternoon, the new boys were excited to explore the school campus in a Treasure Hunt. During the meaningful sharing by F.2 students and Big Brothers, the F.1 students found it useful and interesting for them to adapt the new learning environment. After a day of adventuring and overcoming challenges together, the Big Brothers established a relationship of trust with their younger brothers. All the participants left the school with endearing memories of the first day they spent in school together.

“Be a Government Official for a Day” Program

"Be a Government Official for a Day" is a program organized by the Commission on Poverty and designed for senior secondary school students. It aims at giving selected participants the opportunity to shadow a Principal Official (PO) from a prominent government branch on his/her job for one day to gain hands-on experience of the PO's work and a better understanding of the Government's operation. The program also allows the PO to listen to the students’ views and suggestions on different policy issues.

Recently, one of our Form 5 students, Mak Chit Yuk, was selected to shadow the Secretary for Education, Mr. Kevin Yeung, for a day during this summer holiday. Together with another female student from St. Margret Co-ed English Secondary school, Mak Chit Yuk followed Secretary Yeung to meet the Ambassador of Finland, to make promotional videos for Respecting the Teachers Day and to attend meetings with representatives from various educational bodies. It was surely an eye-opening and inspiring experience for any student participant. It is hoped that such kind of experience can be extended to more students, which allows them to gain more exposure and broader perspectives.

During the graduation ceremony, Mr. Wong, the Principal of the Summer Bridging Course, who is also one of our F6 graduates, delivered an inspiring speech, hoping our Form One boys to be innovative, take the initiative and also be independent. It was then followed by a prize presentation ceremony and a group photo taking session. Mr. Iu, our Principal, also came to the ceremony and gave the Form One boys a few encouraging remarks.

We hope that our Form One boys will have a fruitful and enjoyable new school life at SFXC.

Form 1 Summer Bridging Course 2018

The Form 1 Summer Bridging Course 2018 began on 18 July, 2018. The 8-day course, taught by Native English Teachers and our Form 6 graduates, is 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, the boys do not only learn different academic subjects using English as the medium of instruction, but also experience what our school life is like, including saying the Prayer together at the Morning Assembly.
