In her address to the graduates, Sir Agnes Law urged them to view graduation not only as completion of a course of study but also commencement. While graduates are looking into the future with anticipation, they should make a difference with their positive attitude, and have the courage to move forward even when things are not certain. She reminded the graduates to be grateful for the talents they have and the inspiration and support they got from their family, teachers and schoolmates, so they would be able to take up the responsibility to make the world a better place to live.
Nicole Wong from the Head Girl Core Group of 2020-21 gave a vote of thanks. She extended her gratitude on behalf of the graduates for the Sacred Heart all-round education of Christian values and formation of the heart which nurture them into women of integrity and versatility with global awareness. She brought to our attention the Special Award for Most Nurturing Environment the school received, and thanked the school for the efforts in emphasizing the virtue of charity in humility through various service programmers. This, together with their creativity, adaptability and the bonding among the Sacred Heart family, enable the graduates to be ready to face adversities and challenges ahead.
The school presented the Long Service Award to Ms Chow, Mr. Hung, Ms Keung, Mrs Chiu, Ms Chow and Ms Law, and bid farewell to Ms Law, Ms AuYeung, Mr Lai, Miss Chung and Mr Yau. We bid farewell to three retiring staff members, Mr Frankie Yau, Mrs Angela Chiu and Miss Florence Kwok, who have dedicated their lives in educating and nurturing many students in Sacred Heart.
