Form 1 Orientation and Parents’ Day

It was an exciting Saturday for the Form One students and their parents. This is one of the most important occasions of the year as we welcomed the new students and their parents.

The programme began with our Principal, Mr. Law’s speech to welcome the Form One girls and parents to the big family of St. Francis’ Canossian College. This was followed by the sharing by teachers of various functional teams giving useful information that will surely help our newcomers thrive and succeed in St. Francis’. Thereafter, students and parents got the opportunity to meet their respective Form Teachers in the classrooms.

Leadership Training Camp

After a series of engaging warm-up activities, students were ready for outdoor adventures that aim at boosting team spirit and enhancing leadership skills. The end of this fruitful half-day programme marked the beginning of their way to becoming competent leaders.

It has been a fun and fruitful day for Franciscans! Following the flag raising ceremony and St. Francis Feast Day celebration, the whole school gathered at the basketball court for the kick-off ceremony of the English Fun Day.

From classrooms to the amphitheater, from the English cafe to the classrooms where iPad games were played, students and teachers were having fun chatting and playing games in English!

The long queue in front of the prize-redemption counter was another amazing sight! Indeed, the radiant smiles and cheerful noises are the best rewards!

Special thanks to our Primary Six students from SFCS for joining us on this special day!

The whole school gathered in the hall and enjoyed the Christmas vibes together with all teachers and schoolmates. A brand new event, the Christmas showcase, was organised this year, allowing students to unleash their hidden talents through performing with teachers on stage!

The lucky draw and the fascinating games prepared by the Student Association added lustre to the day.

Leadership workshop for team leaders

This workshop aims at strengthening team leaders’ public speaking skills. We are glad to have Mr VivekMahbubani as our guest speaker. He illustrated ways to speak with a sense of humour and boosted our confidence through various activities such as observation and role plays. Near the end of the workshop, participants paired up to have a “sell-my-friend” exercise. Students were asked to present their partner’s interests and one hidden fact in a funny way. We have not just had lots of fun, but also become funnier speakers. His comedy tips has worked magic!
