S1 parents were invited to the orientation session on the night of 8 Sept 2017 with a view to facilitating home-school communication. Apart from the introduction of an app allowing online replies to school circulars, the support given by the School to the learning and personal growth of students was explained to the participants. Useful advice on parenting was also offered so that parents could nurture their children more effectively.
Preparation work for celebrating the 50th anniversary of the School formally commenced today with the calling of the first meeting of the Golden Jubilee Activities Coordination Committee. Besides the organization of an open day, setting up of a gallery of school history, publication of a school magazine and the holding of an anniversary dinner, there would be fundraising efforts. Let’s fully support those celebration activities, shall we?
The Principal welcomed all students back to school in the Assembly and delivered important messages about studies and school rules to students. In his speech, he also encouraged students to communicate with others in English. The speech was followed by an inauguration ceremony of the Prefect Body. Lastly, we had a self-introduction of the exchange student, Nicolo Galli, who came from Italy, followed by the joint House Meeting.
Aiming at enhancing the cohesion of staff members and inspiring them to teaching being a passion-driven career, the first Staff Development Day was held on 22 August 2017.
Team building activities, such as designing school tours for different stakeholders and the school-orienteering game, were organised to initiate the work of celebrating the Golden Jubilee of the School in the 2018-19 academic year. A workshop hosted by guest speakers from The Methodist Church and featuring the film, 3 Idiots, was then conducted. The speakers shared the message that education should help develop their character and potential rather than just focus on the academic performance of our students.
The active and thorough participation of all staff members made the day a precious and fruitful one!
We welcome our new S1 members and their parents by providing them with information about the school policy and school regulations as well as reminders for both parties on how to better prepare for and adapt to the new life. The achievements of students taking various art and music interest classes were also demonstrated to the participants for a glimpse of school life.
