S5 leadership training members collaborate with the same organization to publish a pamphlet on a community survey.

The Department also recommends students with outstanding performance in extracurricular activities for the Hong Kong Outstanding Students Award to broaden their horizons.

The Music Day is a major large-scale school event to cultivate students’ interest in music and their passion in singing. To match the school policy of enhancing the academic performance of students, the final of the Inter-class Singing Competition is held in December, while the Group singing, solo singing and musical instrument competitions are held in July during the post-exam period. These activities aim to help strike a balance between the academic and extracurricular developments of our students.

The “Hunger Banquet” is jointly organised by the S3 leadership training members, Reading Club and Geography and Hiking Club. Through activities like decorating the venue, games led by the social workers of World Vision Hong Kong, video sharing, allocation of food and setting up display boards, students can understand the disparity between the rich and the poor, and learn to treasure food and care for others.
