Sponsored Walk and Thanksgiving Week 2019
The Thanksgiving Service and the Sponsored Walk were conducted successfully in the last week of November. We would especially like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to Watoto, a charitable organisastion of Christian faith which takes care of children who suffer from political instabilities in Uganda, Africa to share and perform at our Thanksgiving Service. Watoto led a group of Ugandan children and performed various African dances. Not only was the performance an eye-opening experience, but it also allowed us to witness the persistence and courage Ugandan children possess in order to survive and live a life filled with hope.

Sharing by Ethnic Minorities
With the facilitation of CEDAR Fund (施達基金會) and the Urdu Neighbour Centre (烏都鄰舍中心), two Muslim ladies of Pakistani origin and one lady of Indian origin visited each of the S6 Liberal Studies class in November 2019. Through casual chatting and discussion, students got to know the reasons why they came to Hong Kong, challenges they faced here and things they appreciated the most. What’s more, students were able to clear up misconceptions they had long been holding regarding the mysterious ethnic minorities, such as the rules of wearing a hijab, freedom of marriage or the consequences of eating pork “by accident”. It was indeed an eye-opening and valuable experience!
