6-7 September 2019 - Catholic Retreat

The Catholic students went on their annual Catholic Retreat at the start of the school year to reconnect with God and their faith. The much anticipated camp started with numerous team building and faith sharing activities. Upon arriving at the Y.M.C.A. Wu Kwai Sha Youth Village, a few new Catholic students shared their journey of joining the Catholic community. Through them, students learnt that God truly works in wonderful and unpredictable ways. After the barbecue, a special type of prayer was ministered - the taize prayer, where prayers were offered by the candle light with portraits of Jesus in the front of the hall for the people and social issues of our society. After the morning mass on the second day, one of our past Catholic students shared her life-changing experience in MARGIS and Palama's World Youth Day.

We are reminded to always count our blessings and to not take things for granted. This year's Catholic Retreat was definitely the perfect way for students to reconnect with God as well as prepare for the many challenges ahead in the coming school year.

5 September 2019 - Mass of the Holy Spirit

The annual Mass of the Holy Spirit was held on the morning of 5 September. Per tradition, students arrived early to the hall to sing hymns in unison preparatory for the service. Our School Chaplin Fr. Mark Anthony Sernaimpressed in our minds the notion that we all bear unique gifts, and that when we are one, our gifts combine to lift and take our school to even greater heights. He also reminded us to pray often for those who are in distress, for our society, and for those we love and care about. The service closed with the Liturgy of the Eucharist, where the thoughts and feelings of students were collected in small notes of paper and offered to the alter in reverent prayer. It is our sincere hope that we will all treasure up in our hearts the many blessings we have, and always remember to be grateful.

3 September 2019 - Opening Assembly and Presentation of Amy Wong Awards

With summer drawing to a close, sparkles of effervescence once again filled the hallways of the school as the Opening Assembly for the new academic year paves way in great anticipation towards what lies ahead.

Sister Pauline and Mrs Green set the tone for the occasion by introducing the new theme of the year – “Gratitude Unlocks the Fullness of Life”. Students were reminded to always remain thankful despite the ever-present challenges we may face in life be it now or in the future, and that even though as individuals we may uphold different beliefs or values, above all else, being respectful and accepting is of utmost importance.

The Amy Wong Awards then followed as the entire school joined to celebrate Charlotte Yang of 6F for receiving the Amy Wong High Achiever Award for her outstanding performance in the HKDSE. In addition, Stephanie Kam and Jasmine Tang earned the Most Improved Student Award for their efforts. We offer our heartiest congratulations to our fellow Hopers and wish them, and to our fellow schoolmates, the best of luck in all future aspirations and endeavors!
