Embracing God’s Love to Build Harmonious Families and to Serve the Communities
The theme of our 70th Anniversary was “Through Love, We Know Love”, which are the words of Blessed Mary of the Passion, the Foundress of our School Sponsoring Body, Franciscan Missionaries of Mary (FMM). Time flies. 5 years have passed. Here comes our 75th Anniversary. It seems like a new age is embarked, not just with the advancement in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Metaverse, but also with a “new normal”. This “new normal” affects every one of us as we keep adapting to different changes and contingency plans every day. The pandemic has created a new pattern in life. Despite the various changes and challenges, what remains unchanged is the love in mankind. It is with love that we can combat, connect, grow and thrive. “Embracing God’s Love to Build Harmonious Families and to Serve the Communities” is our 75th Anniversary theme. We strongly believe that with the love of our families, friends, teachers, schoolmates, colleagues and above all, the love of God, we can live a truthful life and continue to serve our communities. “Through Charity to Truth”, in Latin, “Per Caritatem Ad Veritatem”, is our school motto.
Our 75th Anniversary Logo was designed by one of our Form 1 (2021-2022) students. Potential is to be unleashed.
Our school provides the stage for students to showcase their talents in different areas. The awards they received are a good proof of the beautiful work of our students and teachers and great collaboration and team spirit. To name some, in HKDSE 2022, Nicole Ho (Form 6E) received Level 5 and above for ALL the 8 subjects she took. in the Grantham Scholars of the Year which is awarded to students with all-round achievements.
