Form 1 Summer Bridging Course 2016

The Form 1 Summer Bridging Course 2016 course was successfully held from 18 to 28 July. The 9-day tailor-made course aimed to accustom the newly admitted Form 1 students to the English learning environment and school life in St. Francis Xavier’s College. During the lessons, the boys learnt different academic subjects using English as the medium of instruction, taught by Native English Teachers recruited from an established educational institution and our Form 6 graduates with outstanding academic performance.

The Course was drawn to a complete close with a simple but solemn graduation ceremony and some snapshots to capture the happy and warm memories.

Secondary School Students Journalism Education Workshop 2016

Last Sunday, 10 of our students participated in the “Secondary School Students Journalism Education Workshop 2016” co-organized by Journalism Education Foundation, EDB, and Department of Media and Communication of City University. The objectives of this annual event were to help secondary school students to gain insights into important concepts such as the functions of mass media, Freedom of Press and Journalistic Ethics.

This year, our students also got the opportunity to visit the Headquarter of TVB News Department and Run Run Shaw Creative Media Center of City University. The aim of these visitations was to give students exposure to the process of news production. The event was concluded by a ceremony to award certificates and souvenirs.

When we look at these Xaverians in the pictures, we may be beholding the faces of next generation journalists.
