14 July 2014 - HKDSE Results Release Day

 

The HKDSE Results Release Day was a very exciting day for all our S6 students, as well as their parents, teachers and past students. There was much nervousness in Delia’s Hall, but a tremendously supportive atmosphere calmed everyone down. The morning started with prayers, and the singing of the school song, and then Sr Pauline, our school supervisor, and Ms Brenda Mau, our acting principal, made speeches of encouragement to the S6 students. They stressed that exam results were always significant, but were not so important as to define individuals completely. You should always have confidence and faith in yourself no matter what your level of success at one particular time.


The school was proud to then announce that Joyce Mok of S6F had the best HKDSE results in Good Hope School this year. She achieved six level 5**, one level 5* and 5* in Mathematics (Module 1). She wins the Amy Wong Scholarship for her efforts. Trina So and Michelle Wong, both of S6F, achieved the second and third best results respectively.


The best subject performance this year was English with 80% of students attaining level 5 or above. The results of other core subjects are as follows:


Core Subject
Level 5 or above
GHS Hong Kong
Chinese language 19.4% 7.9%
English language 80.0% 10.1%
Mathematics 44.5% 13.0%
Liberal Studies 41.9% 9.2%


This year, 86.5% of Good Hopers met the basic entrance requirement for admission to publicly-funded undergraduate programmes (3322).

Well done to all S6 students. You have all put in much effort and may you continue to do your best and be blessed by God in all your future endeavours.

 

 



23 May 2014 - Graduation Day 2014

 

The graduation ceremony for this year’s Secondary 6 students was held on Friday, 23 May, 2014. The Guest of Honour, Prof. Tony Chan Fan-Cheong, President of the University of Science and Technology, addressed the graduates and gave them three life lessons; firstly, not to fear failure when faced by challenges; secondly, to always make the choice that they are the most passionate about; and thirdly to always watch for opportunities. This very special occasion ended with the Ceremony of the Candles, led by Sister Pauline and the class prefects. We wish our graduates all the best in the future!

29 Apr, 2014 – S.4 OLE Musical Competition

 

As part of the DSE requirements all the S.4 classes were tasked with producing class musicals this year. These had to involve every single member of each class, whether in acting, dancing , singing or in producing props, helping with stage management, lighting or sound. On the 29th April each class then had to show the fruits of their labour to the whole school, and what a great show it was! Two professional producers, Mr William Yip and Ms Jarita Wan, acted as adjudicators, and the whole school was left in awe by the creativity of the S4s. There were zombies, fairies and even animals on stage, and the audience were whirled between parties, knife fights, love affairs, and from deep forest glades to darkest hell! There was much joy and laughter throughout, however, and S4 really showed its worth.

16 Apr, 2014 – Reading Festival

 

In order to celebrate the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth, our school organized a reading festival, its aim being to encourage schoolmates to read more. During the festival different panels set up booths in which schoolmates could explore a wide variety of books in various different categories, and books were provided on such topics as general literature, history, paper folding, traditional Chinese legendary stories and, of course, Shakespeare’s famous plays. Besides books the schoolmates also saw some extracts of Shakespearean drama, acted out by their peers from the Drama Club, and had the opportunity to play some games in order to collect stamps. Those who collected enough stamps were able to exchange them for popcorn, cotton candy and ice-cream! It was a fun, exhilarating day!

15 Apr 2014 - Science Fair

 

The Science Fair is a regular feature of our school year- and each year it never fails to amaze and entertain. This year was no exception to the rule! There was a variety of hands-on experiments, in particular involving eggs, but also class-based competitions, such as flying paper airplanes. Not only did the students enjoy exploring science, but the teachers also delighted in demonstrating experiments like the “egg walk”. The Science Fair has once again proved that the world of science is a world in which everybody can learn and have fun.

3 Apr, 2014 – Hunger Meal

 

Today, all the students and teachers gathered together in Delia’s Hall to attend a Bible service and the annual Hunger Meal. There was a presentation about the world problem of hunger and then everyone was only given a small bun for lunch. This was so that everyone could experience the feeling of hunger and imagine what it must be like to feel hunger every day. Through the activity we learned that we should never take anything for granted and, what’s more, we should try to offer help to those in need.

 



28 Mar, 2014- Walkathon

 

Our Good Hope Family came together in one spirit in the Walkathon on 28 March. This year, the Walkathon was held on our very own school campus, making it all the more remarkable.

In the opening ceremony, a 15-foot long banner was unveiled that showed the story of our school; how a single dream had evolved into a legend ‘on Kowloon’s verdant slope’. The PTA then made a generous donation to Sister Pauline as a token of support for the school. Afterwards, Sister announced the start of the walk. Everyone savoured the fresh morning air and the warmth of the occasion. It was a great opportunity to visit the different sections of the school and enhance our sense of unity. To everyone’s delight various game booths and food counters had been set up to entertain and feed all the walkers at the end of their short journey.

The Diamond Jubilee Walkathon symbolizes the journey of Good Hope. While we look back and reminisce about all this however, we are also still remembering to walk forward, hand in hand, saying ‘Yes’ to further missions ahead.

25 Mar, 2014 – 60th Anniversary of GHS Foundation and Opening of the New School Office

 

March 25th marked the birthday of Good Hope School. She is a youthful sixty years old! Everyone gathered in the school hall to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee, to remember the humble beginnings of our Good Hope family and to give thanks to God for all the Blessings He has showered upon the school over the past few decades.

The school chose this particular day, in addition, for the opening of the new school office. Renovation work has been in hand for several months, and was finally completed just in time for the Anniversary celebrations. The new school office consists of offices for the Supervisor, Principal and Vice-principal as well as desks for the administrative staff. There is a more modern medical area and a sleek reception area. As the school office stands as the very heart of our school, this upgrade symbolizes a new beginning for our school. It represents a change for the better, and a renewed vigour in the heart of our Good Hope family; it shows that the Good Hope zeal to continue its mission to spread love, hope, joy and thanksgiving throughout the world is as vibrant as ever.
