The Thanksgiving Mass for the Silver Jubilee of Brother John’s Profession of Vows

On 20th May 2017, we celebrated the Silver Jubilee of Brother John’s Profession of Vows during a Thanksgiving Mass held at Our Lady of China Church. Dozens of our students and teachers attended the Mass and witnessed this joyful occasion first hand. Without catching the eyeballs of many, our humble Brother has already served education for 25 years. We thank him for his dedication and we will continue to pray for him to receive power ceaselessly to continue his work.

STEM activity: “Physics in Motion” Course in Ocean Park

To nurture students’ learning interest and to enhance their creativity, collaboration and problem solving skills in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), more than 30 F.4 Physics students were arranged to take a field trip to Ocean Park on 13th May 2017. There, they got the opportunity to apply their knowledge in Physics to understand and experience first-hand the mechanics behind the thrill rides! Through the rides, they collected data and took videos for movement analyses. Finally, in the workshops, students had to solve problems and create their own experiment using their knowledge in Physics. All in all, it was a fun, exciting and very educational experience.

Pre-final examination revision class 2016-17

To help F.1 to F.4 students prepare for the final exam, F.6 graduates, after sitting for the HKDSE, were invited to come back to be the tutors for their younger brothers. During the 8 days of revision, tutors and participants reported to the hall at 3:30 p.m. and did revision until 5:30 p.m. More than 100 students participated and around 20 F.6 tutors helped in the revision sessions. We are grateful for the volunteer service provided by our graduates. Their effort will certainly help boost our boys’ exam performances.
