Out of an initiative to raise funds for needy students in the S5 Extended Learning Week, Audentia, the current Student Council collaborated with our Parent-Teacher Association to coordinate an annual fun fair on our campus. The theme, Nostalgia, represents the joint efforts of all students, teachers, and staff: Our S1 students gave visitors light-hearted puppet shows based on their own scripts. Some of our S2 students presented their innovations using circuit boards and applications related to science knowledge, others come up with interactive quizzes on their research findings about climate, landscape, architecture and culinary customs.
The S3 groups collaborated with Community Spirit Charity Limited and Hong Kong Rett Syndrome Association, hoping to raise our community’s awareness of patients inflicted with rare diseases. The enterprise project groups tried out their own business projects on furnished stationery items, tote bags, card holders and thermal bottle with cool designs. Different clubs set up game booths and food booths. There were STEM competitions in the school hall between our S2, S4 elective students and Japanese guest students from the National Institute of Technology. The school Drama Group told a dystopian story on Artificial Intelligence and humanity in the auditorium. There was dance performance in the covered playground arranged by the six houses. The School Art Team gave a stunning exhibition of previous year’s inter-house fashion designs.
Sr Agnes, our School Supervisor, Sr Veronica, our School Principal, Mr Kelvin Lee, the chairman of the Parent-Teacher Association, Ms Lusan Hung, the chairlady of the Alumnae Association, Mr Steven Lee, our School Manager, Miss Florence Kwok and Ms Lam Mei Yi, our Vice Principals, Ms Priscilla Kwok, our Assistant Principal, Mr David Hung, Ms Yoshie Lee and Ms Laura Lai, our teacher advisors, together with Cherry Chung, the President of the Student Council, officiated at the opening ceremony.
Inspired by the flourishing bamboo industry in the 1950s, the Student Council built scaffolding around nine building blocks, each consisting of a letter of the word ‘Nostalgia’. The guests of honour were asked to turn the blocks around as they turned on the light bulbs, so that ‘Nostalgia’ would glow in the dark. The campus was decorated with hot-air balloons of pink and soft blue stripes.
But for the unyielding support of the parents, teacher advisers, technicians and janitor staff, the fun fair would not have made possible.
