Personal Finance Drama Show – “都是「碌卡」惹的禍”

Personal financial education has become increasingly important, not only for investors, but also for teenagers nowadays. In response, our BAFS and Economics panels co-organized a personal finance drama show with the Live Theatre & The Boys' & Girls' Clubs Association of Hong Kong for our Form 5 students. The drama, titled “都是「碌卡」惹的禍”, was recently staged on the 22nd of February in our school Hall during F.5 Form Assembly.

Through the drama, students identified various financial needs in university life and learnt something important about financial tools, such as credit card and callable bull/bear contracts. Their corresponding advantages and disadvantages were discussed in an interesting way. Last but not least, students were invited on stage to play roles in different scenarios so as to enhance their acquisition of financial literacy.

Better financial understanding is an essential tool for future success. It is hoped that through education, students can adopt positive values and attitudes towards personal financial planning in the contexts of different life-cycle, especially in their coming university life.

Last School Day for F.6 students (2016-2017)

6 years of secondary schooling had finally come to an end for all F.6 students on 20 January 2017. To commemorate this memorable day, 2 class representatives from each F.6 class had given a vote of thanks to all their form teachers and subject teachers in the morning assembly. The Graduation Committee this year had also prepared the school a handmade gift – a giant potted four-leaf clover, to symbolize their faith and also the school motto “Gentle in Manner, Resolute in Action”. In addition, when the school bell rung at 15:20, all F.6 students and their form teachers stood at the school playground in the pattern of a four-leaf clover, bidding farewell to their secondary school life one last time by singing along a selection of songs and sharing their gratitude towards their Alma Mater.

Christmas Party 2017

The school Christmas Party, also our annual Dress Casual Day, was organized on 22 December 2016. Besides celebrating the festival, we hoped to remind our students what the Marist Brothers have been doing for us in the past 200 years.

A series of celebrations would be organized in 2017 so as to celebrate the bicentennial anniversary of the Marist Brothers. Hence, all Xaverians were encouraged to donate and raise fund for the upcoming bicentennial celebrations and for learning and teaching purposes at school. At the end, the target of donation was well-achieved through different fund raising activities such as teacher-student matches and that over $50,000 was raised.

JACP Trade Fair 2016

Trade Fair 2016, one of the highlights of the JA Company Programme, took place on Saturday, 17th December 2016, at Chater Garden in Central. The programme aimed at developing creativity and business acumen in students by launching their products or services in a real market.

88 JA companies offered their products/service on that day. Under the guidance of voluntary business advisors, Mr. Paul Ho and Mr. Francis Chan, 31 of our Form 4 and 5 students set up a mini-company, Greenovation. The Greenvation offers carbon credits from CarbonCareAsia for sale, and also an app which includes simple calculators for customers to find out their own carbon emission amount. It will be offset by the credit amount, so as to educate customers to change their lifestyle, and therefore changing the world.

Many alumni visited the Greenovation booth during the Trade Fair, including Mr. Chong Chan Yau and Mr. Chan Chi Wan. Their remarkable comments provided lots of insights to the students. As the Trade Fair was held successfully, students learned valuable experiences which would play a big part in their future aspirations.
