What We Think, We Become

Today Bro. John gave us a very deep message derived from the Zen thinking of “What we think, we become”. It explored the complicated interplay of personal belief and what we become, in other words, our destiny. Bro. John gave us a very simple piece of advice that is relevant to any young people – guard our belief and make our thinking positive, because we don’t know how powerful it can manifest in our future. Let’s be conscious of our thoughts and keep them positive, which may drastically improve our life as it unfolds.

Boys, let’s READ more!

We all understand how important reading is to our life, be it enriching our knowledge or helping us wind down from time to time.

This year, something new is done in the hope that our boys will read more.

One example is to subscribe to the eRead Scheme offered by HKEdCity. Starting from September this year, all students and staff can get access to more than 300 eBooks carefully chosen by our teachers, offering a handy alternative to reading paper-based book. [See http://sfxclibrary.weebly.com/eread-scheme.html for steps.]

Another is the introduction of the Reader of the Month Scheme. The top reader of each class (borrowing the most books in the month) will be awarded a book coupon.

We also hope that our boys will be inspired by the proverbs posted at the campus, credit to our 2018 graduates Man Ho Wai and Chan Chin Hei who designed them.

Be Effective, Be Proactive

This morning, Mr. Iu reiterated one of our school’s major concerns for the coming 3 years, which was to build a vibrant learning community that brought about effectiveness and innovation in learning and teaching. He shared with us that the first step towards being an effective person was to be proactive, that we ought to take charge of our own learning and be responsible for the results we produced. Let’s take that message to our hearts and start producing real observable improvements in the coming year.

This, too, shall pass

This morning, Br. John led us to contemplate on the proverb “This, too, shall pass.” Using a story of a powerful king’s ups and downs, Br. John pointed out the truth - “Change is the one constant in the universe”. With it, he encouraged us to be hopeful during unpleasant times and to be humble during moments of triumph. Remember Br. John’s words, “You are just a witness of change. Experience it, understand it, and enjoy the present moment – this too shall pass!” Let take this message to our hearts as we are preparing for the final examinations and bracing the results that are to come.

Weekly Message – Genius or Not?

This morning, Mr. Shing gave us an inspiring message about our common misconception about genius. Using quotes from the iconic scientist Albert Einstein, Mr. Shing illustrated to us that true genius stem from diligence and creativity. They are something we all have and can be cultivated. So don’t think for a second that your destiny is limited by your inherent intelligence. As Einstein had allegedly written, “Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” Genius or not is determined by your own actions.
