On 9 September 2021, ten students of our school participated in the “Flight Simulation Program” organized by Aerosim (HK) Ltd. --- End-to-End Aviation Training & Education Tech Solutions. The staff in Aerosim taught our students with hands-on practice of using the flight simulation model. Not only was aviation knowledge delivered in the programme, but also many interactive and fun learning activities were carried out. Hopefully, our students got inspired by such kind of experience and will explore their career path in the future.
In order to let S1 newcomers and parents get adapted to the new secondary school life, the Guidance Committee organized a range of S1 orientation activities, namely S1 Orientation Day, S1 Parents' Day and S1 Team Building Day respectively before the new school year started.
On 24 July 2021, all S1 students and parents were cordially invited to the school to attend the S1 Orientation Day and warmly welcomed by the Principal Mr. Cheng, Assistant Principal Mr. Tse, Guidance Mistress Ms. Ng, Discipline Master Mr. Yeung, Life Education Mistress Ms. Keung, English panel head Ms. Yuen, ICT panel head Mr. Leung and the school social worker Ms. Leung. The cross-boundary students and parents also attended the event via zoom, together with the local students.
On 21 August 2021, all S1 students and parents were invited to the school to attend the S1 Parents' Day. This time, S1 parents met class teachers directly to get familiar with the school and teachers. The Parent-Teacher Association Members also warmly greeted S1 parents in the event. S1 newcomers definitely gained a better understanding about the new school life by listening to the introduction by the school social worker Ms. Leung, Discipline Master Mr. Yeung, Assistant Principal Mr. Chan, ECA Master Mr. Chau, NET Mr. Warnier and English Panel Head Ms. Chan. Again, the cross-boundary students and parents also attended the event via zoom, together with the local students.
Before the school year started, on 31 August 2021, our S1 local students were invited to participate in the S1 Team Building Day in order to cultivate the sense of belonging and team spirit. The school social workers, members from YWCA and S1 class teachers facilitated the event smoothly.
身體需要營養，心靈同樣需要滋養。在2020-21學年，學校因疫情影響而無法進行面授課堂，同學之間少了機會建立友誼，精神健康也因此受到影響。為了讓中一同學在疫情持續嚴峻及學校尚未恢復面對面授課的這時期得到心靈支援，本校輔導委員會參與加油香港基金，「心之食堂Feed Your Heart」計劃，用食物細說故事，用故事治癒心靈，提醒學生照顧精神健康是每個人都可以做到的功課，大家可練習如何每天照顧自己的心靈。
在試後活動期間，心之食堂計劃邀請了紀錄片《少年滋味》張經緯導演蒞臨本校分享，另外還有We Think Digital 分享 有關網絡個人私隱安全﹑學習發表具同理心的言論。
The following reflections were written by our students who had participated in various extra-curricular activities this year. Reading their reflections on joining different activities, both parents and students can feel the joy and satisfaction of the participants.

I like the workshop「成功在望—成長工作坊」. It was held at the school hall on the 20th of March 2021. I played a life simulation game. The simulation game was very realistic and true to life. It helped us to explore the subjects which were suitable for ourselves. The activity inspired us of what we needed to prepare for our future career.
The activity is related to our School Motto - Learnedness and Integrity. I have gained a deeper understanding of myself that I need to know more knowledge about the global economic development. The activity is a useful one because I want to work in the field of finance in the future. What's more, I have learnt how to treat people with more respect. It is because the simulation game is modelled on the real world and I have learnt a lot on showing proper behavior and developing relationship with others.
I have learnt how to make an investment because the game has included a stock exchange. From the game, I have learnt that my effort will eventually pay off. The same principle applies to my study. I can have a better academic qualification if I study hard. Having a better academic qualification results in securing a better job and a higher income. I should choose a suitable subject to study and have a good preparation for my future career. I have gained a lot of insights which are useful for my future!

The most memorable activity that I participated in this year was the Spring Quiz, held by the English Association. It was held during the Easter holidays. Due to the pandemic, the activity was held online on Instagram. I was one of the organizers of the activity. I had communicated with my committee members so that we selected and worked out different questions for the quiz. I also gave shout-out for the activity so that more schoolmates could be involved in the activity.
This year was the first year for me to be the Chairlady of the English Association. Due to the pandemic, it was always hard for the Association to hold activities and to engage schoolmates to be confident in using English. I am glad that this experience has greatly improved my leadership and communication skills. The Spring Quiz was the second activity, and also the last activity held in this school year. Honestly speaking, it was not easy to hold activity through online platforms. I was worried during the activity. Luckily, the whole activity ran smoothly and the favorable responses from participants were out of my expectations. It has been very meaningful to me and a very unforgettable one.
We should stay positive during the pandemic. What I remember the most from the activity is that we wanted to cheer up students who always needed to stay at home due to the pandemic. Even though the questions somehow may have been difficult for some students, at least they could have fun and a good laugh from the Quiz and learnt the beauty of riddles.
The activity also showed our creativity. In the beginning of the competition, Tessie (the Vice-chairlady of the English Association) and I had written a poem to students. It was challenging for us to write a poem to describe the attitude and behavior of a rabbit. We enjoyed the moment very much.
For myself, I am confident in developing my knowledge in the senior school years. I have been working hard on pursuing excellent academic performances in these three years. I am sure that the knowledge I acquired will help me to develop into a better person in the coming senior school years.
I have promised myself to be actively participating in school clubs and associations. This year, I am glad that I have achieved that from organizing activities for the English Association. The English Association has provided me with a lot of opportunities to develop my potential and abilities.

I joined the Elderly Life Experience Day. I enjoyed the activity very much because we gained some experience through involving ourselves in different activities. We got a deeper understanding of how hard and difficult the elderly's daily life could be by buying some low-priced food and clothes under the limited budget in North Point. In another activity, our physical strength and mobility were hindered because we needed to put on special costumes to simulate the movement of the elderly. We soon suffered from neck and waist pain by collecting and scavenging cardboard on the ground.
A lot of elderly live alone and the monetary aid from the government is not enough for them to afford the daily expenditure. Besides, they need to pay for the high rent of their homes. Some elderly cannot afford to pay the high rent so they become homeless, eventually sleep on the streets.
Some elderly earn very little income by scavenging cardboard in the streets. To know more about this, we went to one of the cardboard collecting and recycling shops to ask about the price for recycling cardboard in North Point. It was shocking to know that 1 kg of cardboard was only worth 80 cents.
Knowing all these, we think we should do more to help the elderly. We should donate clothes or food to them. Besides, we hope that the government should concern more about this problem.
After the Elderly Life Experience Day, I think the government should have given more help to the elderly. In the role play activity, we pretended to be a 64-year-old elderly who was homeless. It was because a person aged 64 actually did not meet the minimum age requirement of obtaining Old Age Living Allowance in Hong Kong. It is crystal clear that we should try to help the elderly in every possible way.
The Diamond Jubilee Speech Day was successfully held on 5 June 2021. We were honoured to have invited our alumna, Ms. Au Tsz Kwan Fiona, the Assistant Commissioner for Innovation and Technology, to be our guest-of-honour to address the ceremony as well as present certificates and prizes.
Ms. Au's studies at Wong Shiu Chi began in 1997. Then, she went on to obtain her Bachelor of Social Science Degree from the University of Hong Kong. Upon graduation, she joined the government. She has been the Assistant District Officer for the Eastern District and is currently the Assistant Commissioner for Innovation and Technology.
As a student at Wong Shiu Chi, Ms. Au embodied all that we hope our students aspire to. She was highly commended for her excellent academic performance, conduct and active participation in extra-curricular activities. With those remarkable achievements, she won the Outstanding Student Award and for six school years, the Conduct Prize. Back then, Ms. Au was no doubt exemplary, so it may come as no surprise that she was chosen to be one of our Head Prefects. She is certainly a role model for her junior schoolmates to follow.
When Ms. Au was in her sixth year of studies here, she underwent one of Hong Kong's tough times, the SARS outbreak. To better protect her fellow schoolmates' health, she reported for duty as the Head Prefect early in the morning to assist teachers with the implementation of epidemic preventive measures. What was admirable during that difficult time is the fact that Ms. Au never gave in to the stress brought by the unusual circumstances. She even learnt to deal with challenges independently. Teaching herself to be a conscientious, reliable and resilient leader, she eventually succeeded in leading other Prefects to overcome the obstacles along the way. We were proud to see how Ms. Au managed to grow up so much faster than her counterparts at that time.
In her congratulatory address, Ms. Au inspired our graduates by sharing with them the elements contributing to her success. She encouraged our graduates to get out from their comfort zone, to "roll up their sleeves" and do what they have to do. She also stressed the importance of lifelong learning, though it is always difficult to spare time in the packed schedule. Last but not least, she encouraged graduates to share and seek help to overcome and go through difficult times.
At last, Ms. Au ended her speech by expressing her warm gratitude to the audience. With her expertise and extensive experiences, we are sure that her speech has inspired and enlightened our graduates a lot.Click to download photos

On 20th May, 2021, Michael won a Merit Award in the Grand Final with his inspirational prepared speech and his outstanding performance in the 2-minute impromptu question-answer session. Congratulations!

Throughout the preparation period of the CIE English Public Speaking Contest 2021, the most challenging task is definitely writing a concise script. As I had no prior experience in writing a public speech, I faced difficulties in conveying a meaningful message and grasping the right style and tone. It was a difficult, yet rewarding, experience when I had to refine my speech over 5 times with the feedback of my teacher advisor. However, I'm really grateful since I've learnt how to write a persuasive public speech now. In addition, the way to present myself is another skill I've learnt. Before entering the contest, I didn't know how to use appropriate body languages to engage my audience. Therefore, delivering the speech with appropriate gestures is, without a doubt, one of the most precious skills I've learnt from this contest! Finally, I would like to emphasise the self-confidence I gained during the impromptu session. Having practised over 50 impromptu questions, I was able to structure my 2-min impromptu speech spontaneously and persuade my audience with different strategies. I am glad that I have overcome the anxiety of answering question without preparation. Overall, the past 2 months had really been an unforgettable experience in my language learning journey. Not only did I broaden my horizon through listening to different speakers, but I also gained the confidence to speak publicly in front of hundreds of people!

本校22位義工隊成員於5月27日參與由樂施會(Oxfam Hong Kong)及歷耆者(Eldpathy)主辧的長者貧窮體驗之旅。當天，各義工隊成員穿上特製的「高齡體驗裝」，親身體驗長者在衣、食、住、行方面的種種困難。在導師帶領下，義工們走進北角社區，了解長者貧窮問題以及生活情況。經過三個多小時的體驗，義工們了解到造成香港長者貧窮問題的各種成因，以及提出解決問題的建議。透過這次活動，深信他們能夠體會到本港貧富差距之大，日後更多關注社會需要。
