Career Week

The theme of Career Week 2015-16 was Live Your Life Live Your Dream, responding to the new school’s major concerns Gear Up, Go the Extra Mile.  Students were encouraged to chase their dream and consider different roles they play, including citizen, leisurite and recreationist in Super’s Career Rainbow.  The guest speaker of the assembly, a marathon lover and an alumni, shared how he balanced his work, interest and family and passion can drive one’s life.  During the week, there had also been lots of fun elements like photo-taking corner and game booths, creating an inviting and stimulating environment where students find it natural to talk about their dreams and learn about different jobs.

S.5 Life Camp

Life Camp, a school-based career intervention, is pivotal to individual student planning and career guidance in S5 and S6.  Run in its eighth year, the camp is themed on life planning and team building.  In the camp, students discuss their career test results in relation to their academic and career goals, prepare for transition challenges, explore career options by meeting alumni of different study and work backgrounds, build team spirit and most importantly have fun.

Meeting students from Seoul National University

Our school was very excited to host a group of Korean university students from the College of Education, Seoul National University early in February 2017.

Eight student leaders showed our visitors around our school campus and introduced to them our student activities and facilities. Afterwards, the guests, in four groups, visited Biology, ICT, Accounting and History lessons.

The programme ended with an after-school chat, attended by about 30 students from different forms. It was very interesting to hear what our guests had to say about their homeland, and what they thought about Hong Kong.  We also learned about the similarities and differences in the two education systems and school lives in the two places.

Irish-Hong Kong Cultural Exchange

Percy Chan and Cyrus Leung became student ambassadors of Consulate General of Ireland in October 2016 and joined a number of events to learn about Irish culture, business and the roles of diplomats in Hong Kong.  On the visit of Irish Higher Education Institutions to Hong Kong, all student ambassadors shared their understanding of Irish culture and it was great joy that Percy’s and Cyrus’ presentation won the only (and a truly special) prize – an Irish musician giving a mini-concert at our school in March 2017.  The musician Miss Deirdre Chárthaigh, accompanied by the Deputy Consul General Miss Isobel O’Connor, played beautiful pieces with the Irish harp and concertina.  To promote exchange between the two cultures, Joyce Kwok (S3B), a harp player, joined Cyrus in performing two melodies, too.  It was indeed a musical and a satisfying afternoon.
