Mr. Shing reminded students not to hold grudges and seek revenge. Vengeance is a selfish deed and people suffer in revenges. It is a vicious cycle that never ends and it would just lead to further revenges. We should resolve our anger with love and not allow the rage to grow with hatred.
As the celebration of the 60th anniversary has started, Mr. Leung shared a deeper insight of the Marist styles with the students in the morning assembly.
The Marist’ style of education has nurtured many Xaverians. The five distinctive styles are influential as they provide assurance, encouragement, respect, trust, honesty, harmony and peace, healthy mind and soul, happiness, and most importantly, love to one another.
The Marist styles are a gift to us. We hope our students can live out the gift of God and allow other people to see God’s love through these distinctive styles.
Mr. Pong shared some stories and examples to remind us about the importance of family spirit. It is more than just a feeling of warmth and tenderness. It is about sacrificing our own needs for others. We should develop attitudes and traits of love and forgiveness, support and help, forgetfulness of self, openness to others and joy to make family spirit a reality.
It is especially touching to know that alumni have booked over 40 tables within a month to celebrate their alma mater’s 60th anniversary at the basin feast in the coming December. Their love and support are strongly appreciated. This highlights another evidence of our distinctive trait in which family spirit and unity never fades in SFXC.
