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!
The training camp kicked off with Student Association leading participants to have some warm-up games. Then, the mentors introduced some exciting games to consolidate exco members’ leadership skills such as collaboratively managing several difficult movements, catching neighbour’s ball in a circle, etc. We were fully engaged in team building games and giving our best efforts in order to win. Yet, we earned not only points, but trust among team members. What a fruitful day!
This workshop aims at strengthening team leaders’ public speaking skills. We are glad to have Mr VivekMahbubani as our guest speaker.

We have not just had lots of fun, but also become funnier speakers. His comedy tips has worked magic!
