2-3 Sept 2016, 9-10 Sept 2016 – S1 Orientation Camp

Recently, our S1 students have been enjoying and benefitting from an Orientation Camp in Sai Kung. S1A, 1C, 1E were away on the 2nd and 3rd September, whereas S1B, 1D, 1F went on the 9th and 10th of September. They took part in adventure training, including group games, a blind walk and “mini society”. Debriefings were conducted by experienced trainers after the activities.

 

Through these activities, students learnt how to communicate effectively with their classmates. They now have a better understanding of their classmates and the meaning of team work. They were also immersed in lots of fun. The camps were definitely an unforgettable way for the girls to spend their weekend.




21 & 22 Sept 2016 – Central Board Platform 2016-2017

The annual Central Board Platform was successfully held on 21 & 22 September. A total of 19 candidates ran for posts in four main categories: Activities, Administration, Promotion and Religious Coordinator. During these two days, candidates demonstrated their passion and vision for serving the school and the whole student body.

 

After watching the candidates’ energetic self-promotion, creative videos and intelligent engagement with challenging tasks on stage, the student body then exercised its democratic right to vote for their preferences. We eagerly await the results.

Microfilm Training Program

This summer, Christine Cheung of 6C and Sammy Yau of 6D were selected to join a microfilm training program organized by The Chinese Rhenish Church Hong Kong Synod. During the program, different stages of video production were taught, including the techniques of video shooting, video and audio editing, and lighting. Not only did they learn the skills and techniques of making a microfilm, but they also had a go on an aerial camera!

 

Through their productions, they hope to spread love and care throughout the community, to raise the public’s awareness of drug abuse, and to highlight the importance of perseverance and following your dreams. Schoolmates are encouraged to join this meaningful program in the coming year to show their love and care to society and to spread the Good Hope values around the community!



5 Sept 2016 – Mass of the Holy Spirit and the Amy Wong Award Presentation

The Mass of the Holy Spirit this year was led by Father Devos. All students and staff prayed sincerely for love and peace in the new school year. Father Devos delivered a homily reminding us that we should always give and receive love. This was a response to our school theme this year: Love is what binds us all together in perfect harmony.

 

After the mass, Ms. Amy Wong, a past student, presented the Amy Wong Award and the Most Improved Award to some of our outstanding graduates. The recipient of the Amy Wong Award this year is Stephanie Moy, who got 5** in five subjects and 5* in her other three subjects. Stephanie also earned the Most Improved Award, alongside Deborah Tsun, the other recipient. Standing on the stage, Stephanie thanked her parents, Ms. Wong and all the teachers, while Deborah shared some of her experience with us and her advice that a clear goal will lead to good results. Before leaving the stage, Ms. Wong also reminded us to create a culture of sharing and giving as she believes that those two elements are not only the privilege of the rich.

1 Sept 2016 - Start of the New School Year

 

The wheel of time keeps moving ahead and today marked the beginning of the academic year 2016-2017. The opening ceremony was held at Holy Spirit Hall and our Supervisor, Sister Pauline, took to the stage to introduce the school theme this year: Love is what binds us all together in perfect harmony. Good Hopers were reminded to accept each other’s differences in order to build a harmonious learning environment. Our Principal, Mrs. Green, then warmly welcomed our new Vice Principal (Academic Affairs), Ms. Helen Yu alongside the new teachers joining our Good Hope family this year. Finally, we are all now eagerly looking forward to the revitalized Delia's Wing after watching a short video presented during the ceremony. Happy new school year!
