「國家憲法日」 - 國旗下的短講與相關活動

 12月4日為「國家憲法日」。故此,我校於早會時段的升旗儀式後,安排了「國旗下的講話」,講解憲法的歷史與意義;此外,初中同學均參與了由香港教育城舉辦的2023國家憲法日網上問答比賽及收聽校内廣播的憲法短講。相信通過一系列的活動,能讓學生認識祖國憲法,明白憲法是「一國兩制」在香港特區實踐的法律保障和依據,亦是香港特區保持長期繁榮穩定的基石。

聖方濟各沙勿略瞻禮慶典

 學校主保聖人—聖方濟各(St. Francis of Xavier),他一生以熱切的心神敬拜上主,遠道東亞各地傳揚福音。在這遙遠而艱巨的傳教生活中,遇上不少困難和危險,但仍能一一克服,全心依靠天主。今年的主題 —— 「來跟隨,去見證」。透過活動和嘉賓的分享,加深同學對聖人的認識,並樂意以身體力行,效法聖人在生活中為基督作證。

Formation of Heart

Six Catholic Formation sessions are conducted during Home Time for Catholic students. The student leaders will take on the responsibility of preparing and hosting the event, with valuable support from Sr. Betty, who will provide informative talks on Catechism during the initial sessions. Furthermore, the students will actively engage in preparing activities for their peers. Catholic students gather in small groups to respond to some reflective questions after each session. 


Six spiritual development programs are arranged during Home Time for non-Catholic students. We aim to create a nurturing environment where students can explore their spirituality and deepen their relationship with God. Additionally, we will invite guest speakers to deliver talks on ethics and faith. Throughout the programs, we instill moral values such as gratitude, respect, sacrifice, and forgiveness.
