Dear Parents and Students,
Extended Learning Day was successfully completed on 29th April. Activities designed by teachers and students and divided into 29 groups, including activities as wide-ranging as the scope of conservation and environmental protection, workplace experience, science and space exploration, historical and cultural investigation, community care, University tours, life education, exploring the Islands, reading, science and technology, photography etc. Teachers and students had been planning the excursions for months according to their interests. We thank God for the fair weather throughout the day. Students enjoyed the activity so much. They took this opportunity to get to know new friends and broaden their horizons.
May is the climax of Pooi To school life. More than two hundred students and teachers have been preparing the final rehearsal for Arts in Action 2016 on 6th May. Many students had to suspend extracurricular activities or tutoring to dedicate themselves fully to their performance. It speaks of countless sacrifices and we look forward to seeing the results of their hard work and dedication on 6th May. In addition, on 13th May we have invited Ms. Smile Cheung, a popular media personality to share how to enhance the quality of parenting and help parents to become more aware of the growth of teenagers in the face of emotional challenges.
Furthermore, Our 52nd graduation ceremony will be held on 20th May. We are privileged to have Prof. Tony Chan, the President of The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology as our guest of honour to impart his wisdom and share the joy of S.6 graduates. Last but not least, our drama team will perform the drama “I'm not a princess" for the general public in Hong Kong Chai Wan Youth Square Y-Theatre. This play won the Adjudicators’ Award, which was the highest achievement in the Hong Kong School Drama Festival 2015/16. I would like to encourage everyone to support them. Congratulations to all concerned. Glory to God!
