S6 Catholic Students’ Retreat

Gratitude is indeed a gift and a privilege. Have you ever thought of the fact that when you lament the lack of clothes you owned, some in developing countries may be suffering? To help our S6 Catholic students open up their hearts to love and be strengthened by God, the Canossian Mission organized a retreat for all Canossian S6 Catholic students on September 16. Fr. Joseph Yim‘s sharing aroused our attention of the hardships the impoverished faced around the globe, and has inspired us to take action to express gratitude for the gifts we received from God, like things we owned and education we are lucky enough to receive. We are also reminded not to take anything for granted and to always be ready to reach out to those in need of help.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)

Summer Bridging Programme (16-18, 21-22 August 2023)

Our 5-day-Summer Bridging programme has been a great success. After years of influence due to the pandemic, our newly joined Franciscans are finally able to fully engage in the range of activities and courses tailor made for them.
The programme began with a morning prayer. Mr. Law, our principal, delivered a welcoming speech, followed by an introduction by our vice principal and a briefing by the discipline master. The eagerly anticipated moment arrived as the students met their form teachers for the first time.

We believe that whole-person development is of the utmost importance in secondary education. Following the taster programme of core subjects, our newcomers were accompanied by their form teachers in the values education home program led by Mr Remus Kwok from City University of Hong Kong. Student leaders from the Student Association, the four houses, sports team, music team, and the counseling team collaborated to organize engaging orientation programs. These initiatives aimed at familiarizing F1 newcomers with the school culture and provide them with a well-rounded introduction. The charming smile and enlivening enthusiasm have uplifted the spirit of students and teachers alike.

Citizenship and Social Development mainland study tour 2023

Form 5 students participated in the Citizenship and Social Development (CS) mainland study tour in Guangzhou on 27th April 2023. Led by principal Mr. Law, nine CS teachers and Form teachers, the girls visited the Lai Wan Museum and Intangible Cultural Heritage Museum. As an integral part of the DSE CS curriculum, this tour serves as a precious opportunity for Form 5 girls to explore the traditional cultures of our country. It covers different traditional cultural elements including the visit to the Xiguan Folk Customs Museum of Liwan Museum (Guangzhou) and the Guangdong Province Intangible Cultural Heritage Conservation Exhibition Hall of Guangdong Cultural Centre.

At Liwan Museum (Guangzhou), exploration on a multitude of meaningful Chinese culture: the historical Chinese architecture of Xiguan House, beautiful glass windows, wooden doors, clothing of people and the contemporary image females in paintings, all of which reflected Chinese people’s lives, traditions and their social status in the past. This is followed by the visit to the Guangdong Cultural Centre, where students marvelled at the arts and performance arts of Chinese, for instance, Yue embroidery, Chinese lanterns, Cantonese opera, Lion dance, Dragon dance, Bird dance, and wedding and customs of minorities, to name but a few.

Among the aforementioned interesting exhibits, Yue embroidery is incontrovertibly one of the most eye-catching items. An embroidery depicting tulips in western style, together with bright threads with shining beads form a colourful picture. Bead embroidery is only one of the forms of Yue embroidery, other forms include “Ding Gum Sau”, woolen needlepoint tapestry and machine embroidery. It is renowned for its unique technique which makes use hair of humans or animals to form exceptionally smooth and even patterns.

Through appreciating an array of exhibits, F.5 girls have deepened their understanding of traditional Chinese culture, as well as the conservation of both tangible and intangible cultural heritage in China. This undoubtedly serves as a remarkable experience for them to enhance the sense of belonging to the cultural origin of motherland.

 “The CS Mainland study tour has enabled me to realize the CS curriculum aims through experiential learning. By participating in the field study activities, we have broadened our horizons, gained first-hand understanding of our country and its latest development, as well as understood and appreciated the achievements of our country and Chinese culture. This undoubtedly enhances our sense of national identity and sense of belonging to the traditional Chinese culture.”                                   ------5B Arielle Kwok

耶穌被釘在十字架上,死後被埋葬。有兩位門徒失望難過打算回家,離開耶路撒冷途經厄瑪烏的路上遇到復活後的耶穌,他們改變了——眼開了,心熱了,並找到了方向,看到了自己的價值。無論經歷什麼挫折,其他人怎樣看待自己,只要能堅守信仰,定能夠克服困難。雖然有時候我們會失望,甚至逃避,但只要我們願意用心去尋找耶穌基督,就會找到希望。門徒當天在厄瑪烏路上遇上耶穌基督,我們又能否在日常生活中發現耶穌呢?今日我校請來一位舊生 (Agatha Ng)和她的丈夫 (宇彤)作嘉賓,他們的人生路走來一點也不容易,但他們仍充滿喜樂,一步一步走向他們的夢想之路,因為他們看見了耶穌基督在他們生命中所做的事。希望同學今天能藉著二人的分享,都像厄瑪烏門徒一樣「眼開了,心熱了」。

School Picnic – Extended Learning Activity

It was the most awaited day of the year. Our school picnic was held on 4th November 2022. For the first time, the whole school went to Ocean Park for a picnic. The amusement park was a terrific choice for a picnic destination for students to learn while having fun. It raised students’ awareness towards wildlife conservation and marine creatures.
Students were required to watch a video clip featuring Conservation Battlefront Seminar before the outing. The programme introduced local conservation work from the aspect of technology, art and sustainability being done on three protected species in Hong Kong, namely Golden Birdwing, Green Turtle and Acropora Corals.
Students were divided into small groups to observe animals in the “Aquarium”, “Asian Animal World”, “Polar Adventure” and “Tropical Rainforest”. They had to investigate several animals of their interest, for example a Sea Horse or a Panda, and complete a guided field study worksheet about a few local species of their interest.
The Extended Learning Day was a self-directed learning opportunity for students to learn about the local habitat of the animals. They worked at their own pace which gave them a unique experience of interdisciplinary and self-directed learning. It promotes the youngsters to engage with others, plan and promote the conservation industry.

Visit to Hong Kong Science Park

On 7 October and 21 October 2022, our F.3 students visited the Hong Kong Science Park. They got the chance to explore the technologies of autonomous vehicle, AI and smart retail. The visit to some booths was helpful in making them understand more about the application of innovative technologies in different industries. Dr. Crystal Fok, the Head of STP Platform at Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP) gave a talk to our students and introduced them to the innovation and technology ecosystem in Hong Kong and its future potential. CUHK Robotics Team, the winners of Robocon HK 2022, enlightened our students through their sharing on innovation and how new technologies are changing the world and our daily lives.  


“We learnt a lot of interesting information about new technology such as how a self-driving shuttle makes use of sensors to detect people, objects, and vehicles on the road.  We also visited some booths and learnt how to breed crabs in an efficient way by using robots. During the visit, we got to know about the Mini-Robocon competition for junior secondary students. My classmates and I decided to form a team to join the competition, which will be held in March 2023. We are excited to be given the opportunity to construct and control robots. All in all, the visit was a wonderful and unforgettable experience for us.”

Ariel Cheng F. 3A


“This time, the visit to the Science Park was a very different experience. I was amazed to see an autonomous self-driven bus. This is an exciting technology in which the bus operates without someone actively driving it. We understand how it functions on the road and how the sensors in the vehicle can sense obstacles on the roads including humans or little animals. It was fun because I experienced how our lifestyle is being changed by technological advancement. This visit has been a rewarding experience.”

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. A thirty-minute session with the teachers marked the beginning of building a good rapport between Form Teachers, students and parents.

We wish our Form One students a fruitful and enjoyable school life in St. Francis’!

The Christmas Celebration was successfully held on 21st December, 2021. This has been a day that Franciscans look forward to every year. 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! An array of performances including dancing, singing and drama were staged. Festivity filled the hall as everyone cheered and applauded for the magnificent performances. We were amazed not only by the hidden talents of the performers, but the close bonding they had established. The lucky draw and the fascinating games prepared by the Student Association added lustre to the day. May these precious moments shared among Franciscans be our drive to work hard, live well and go far!

English Fun Day

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. As our principal Mr. Law and our guests from Headstart popped the confetti cannons, the festival began!
Creativity and artistic flair of our students were manifested through the Twelve game booths designed and set up by senior form classes. Our Student English Ambassadors were all around the campus charismatically and cheerfully conversing with guests and students. Festivity and blissfulness filled every corner of the school. 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!
