Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we cancelled many activities, including our Lunar New Year Gathering with the Brothers. To help share our love and joy with them, the Staff Affairs sub-committee created a beautiful New Year gift basket for Mr. Iu to present to the Brothers on behalf of all staff on 19th February 2021. Though there weren’t many on scene to witness the event, it didn’t make it any less warm and joyful.
Stay safe everyone, may we all have a healthy and fruitful Year of the Ox.
Alongside Yam Kai Yui Hubert, Sit King Yin (6B) has been awarded the Multi-faceted Excellence Scholarship 2020 (in Community Services). They are two of 40 students receiving this prestigious award in the year of 2020. Although King Yin is yet to be publicly recognized by an official award ceremony due to the Covid-19 pandemic, he has already been reaping the full benefit of the scholarship, paying for his degree in medicine at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
A big congratulations to Sit King Yin and we are proud of your achievement.
In 2014, the HKSAR Government launched the Multi-faceted Excellence Scholarship (MES) to support local students studying the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) curriculum who excel in sports, arts or community service to pursue undergraduate studies in universities and locally-accredited degree-awarding institutions in Hong Kong. The scholarship aims to promote a culture of multi-faceted excellence and convey to society the message that academic results are not the sole criterion for measuring the success of young people. It rewards awardees (max. 40 students each year) with full coverage of university tuition for their desired programs.
In 2020, we have two students being awarded the prestigious Multi-faceted Excellence Scholarship. One of them is Yam Kai Yui Hubert, who is awarded Multi-faceted Excellence in Sports. It is a pity that Hubert is yet to be publicly recognized by an official award ceremony due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Despite of that, he has been reaping the full benefit of the scholarship, paying for his double degree program in law and business at the University of Hong Kong. A big congratulations!
In the height of the 3rd wave of the local Covid-19 outbreak, we shut down all our Christmas gatherings but that didn’t stop us from celebrating the festive season and expressing our gratefulness towards the Brothers. On behalf of all staff of the school, Mr. Iu presented a gift basket to our Brothers on 23rd December 2020. Though there weren’t many on scene to witness the event, distance cannot stop us from expressing our thankfulness in every little ways. So let us all continue to remember our Brothers in prayers. May we all have a safe and merry Christmas at home.
On the 21st November 2020, we successfully held the 2nd round of our F.1 Admission Information Day. Due to the pandemic, we had to scale down the number of guest we could accommodate to half of what we had last year in the first day. To accommodate the overwhelming response, we organized this extra round of Information Day for our future applicants. Now both events have been concluded successfully, we wish our applicants the best of luck.
