15 July 2015 - HKDSE Results Release Day


The atmosphere was understandably nervous, and our S6 students cautiously excited as they, supported by friends, parents and teachers, awaited the news of this year’s HKDSE results. Prayers and words of comfort from Vice Principal Mrs Angela Lee helped those present to find some calm before the slips were handed out. Our Supervisor Sister Pauline and Principal Mrs Green also added words of wisdom and encouragement, reminding students that their education at Good Hope School has been about much more than exam training and academic results and that, ultimately, ‘all roads lead to Rome’ in chasing their dreams and aspirations.

Then the moment arrived. The school was proud to announce that Chloe Chow of 6F won the Amy Wong Scholarship for the best HKDSE results in Good Hope this year. She achieved five level 5** and three level 5*. Bebe Shing of 6F and Cheryl Hui of 6D achieved the second and third best results respectively.

Below is a comparison of Good Hope’s core subject results with that of the rest of Hong Kong:

Core Subject Level 5 or above
GHS Hong Kong
Chinese language 13.3% 7.0%
English language 60.5% 8.1%
Mathematics 32.3% 14.5%
Liberal Studies 25.6% 10.2%

This year, 84.1% of Good Hopers met the basic entrance requirement for admission to publicly-funded undergraduate programmes (3322).

Congratulations to all our S6 graduates and all the best for your future endeavours!


29 May 2015 - Graduation Day 2015


The Secondary 6 graduation ceremony was held on Friday, 29 May 2015. The Guest of Honour, Prof. Peter Mathieson, President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Hong Kong, shared that graduates should treat each day as a learning opportunity. He went on to teach the graduates to turn every threat into an opportunity by learning from experiences. He emphasized that the graduates should not fear competition and setbacks, but should embrace them. After his enlightening advice, Professor Mathieson drew the audience’s attention to the “He for She” Campaign, a movement initiated by UN Women (the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women) to encourage men in promoting gender equality. “Work hard, play hard,” Professor Mathieson advised the graduates to find enjoyment in life and self-improvement.

This very special occasion drew to a close with the The Candle-Lighting Ceremony in the midst of the melodies performed by the choir. All eyes were on the Graduation Day flame, which was resting on top of the giant Easter candle. As Sister Pauline illuminated her own candle with the dancing flame, a single flame became two and two became many. When all of the graduates received their own flame, they were united under the Good Hope Spirit, together – one last time. We trust that the graduates would continue to bear the spirit of Good Hope, making their own dreams into reality and inspiring others to do the same.


23 Apr 2015 - Reading Festival


The Reading Festival was held on the World Book Day to encourage schoolmates to engage in a series of reading activities. The inter-house Battle of the Books was held especially to test schoolmates’ quick wit and understanding on the assigned books. Game booths were also available in the library and St. Joseph’s Hall. Schoolmates collected stamps from the booths to get sweet treats or an “I love book” book bag specially designed for the occasion. The bag was so popular that it was swept by eager schoolmates that have participated in these activities. It was definitely a fun and rewarding experience for everyone.


27 Mar 2015 - Walkathon


The annual Walkathon was successfully held on 27th March. It started off with an opening ceremony. The principal gave a speech and marked the opening of the walkathon. We walked along the Lugard Road trail and enjoyed the panoramic view of the Victoria Harbour. It was a great time to exercise and to take a break from school work. Although it rained in the morning, the weather didn’t affect our determination to finish the walk. It even reminded all that every cloud has a silver lining, and one should never give up when encountering obstacles.


23, 24 and 25 Mar 2015 - Inter-class Mathematics Contest


On the 23rd, 24th and 25th March, S1-S3 students participated in the Inter-class Mathematics Contest. The competition consisted of two parts: the riddle and the game. The questions were both creative and challenging for the students. The competitors enjoyed discussing the problems with their teammates and it was good to see so many of their classmates coming along to cheer them on.


19 Mar 2015 - The Second Inter-house General Knowledge Quiz Contest


The whole school, including 30 little sisters from the Primary Section, gathered in Delia’s Hall on the morning of 19th March waiting for an exciting contest to begin. The contestants from the six houses put forth their best effort to answer challenging questions related to History, Geography, Economics and Liberal Studies. The contest came to a climax when students from the floor and even teachers were invited to answer the questions on behalf of their respective houses. After 3 rounds of fierce competition, Sandal House was able to beat the other 5 houses and bring home the trophy for the second year in a row. Congratulations!


12 and 13 Mar 2015 - S.3 China Study Tour and English Exchange


On 12 -13 March, 2015, our S.3 students went to Shunde, China on an educational and cultural exchange. The highlight of the study tour was the English Exchange. All S.3 students turned into teachers and went to 3 primary and secondary schools to conduct a 60-minute lesson to teach P.5-F.2 students English. Through the English Exchange, not only have the S3 students learnt to be more aware of the needs of others, but they have also learnt more about the Chinese culture. The English Exchange was well received by the teachers and the students in China. A news article regarding the exchange was even published in a local newspaper, which can be retrieved here.


3 and 4 Mar 2015 – Cool Science Day


Every year the Science KLA prepares various entertaining and exciting activities for students to learn outside the classroom. Cool Science Day was organized over two consecutive lunchtimes in March. There were a variety of hands-on experiments involving dry ice and liquid nitrogen, such as the ice hockey and frozen flower. Many food booths applying the science principles were set up, such as liquid nitrogen ice cream and crunchy marshmallow. Not only did the secondary students enjoy the activities, but our sisters from the primary section also participated and found the activities educational.
