「立法者們」青年議政培訓計劃 2023/24

本校公民與社會發展科早前派出四名中五學生參加由教育倡行主辦,公民教育委員會贊助,香港中文大學及復旦大學滬港發展聯合研究所聯合舉辦之「立法者們」青年議政培訓計劃 2023/2024。該計劃響應「青年發展藍圖」,旨在鼓勵及培養青少年議政論政的技巧,認識香港社會。是次活動為期半年,提供了一系列講座與工作坊,令學生深入了解國家憲制及立法機關的工作。經過面試後,5A 李康盈及5A 邱力申獲選成為「影子議員體驗」十位學員其中兩位,分別到江玉歡議員和張欣宇議員辦事處進行兩天實習活動。另外,該計劃亦舉辦了「模擬立法會」活動,讓學員就青少年精神健康問題各抒己見。本校同學於是次活動中屢創佳績,5A范佩詩及5A李康盈榮獲「最佳回應獎」;5A邱力申及5A 邱子圓榮獲「最佳函件獎」及「最佳議員獎」,一共奪得六個獎項。最後,本校學生就「社區設計」及「政策研究」兩方面實踐,並於閉幕禮現場匯報。

5A 邱力申 Yau Lik San

這次活動內容豐富,我有幸到張欣宇議員辦事處進行兩天實習活動,其中印象最深刻的是旁聽張議員與物流界代表的會議。我從中親身體驗議員工作的不易,不單單是參與立法會的例會,更需要擔當政府與市民溝通的橋樑。另外,模擬立法會的活動更令我獲益良多,例如在發言時如何以準確例子論證,甚至要精準把握時間。議員為民喉舌不遺餘力,儘管我暫未有從政的念頭,但所學足以畢生受用。

5A 邱子圓 Yau Tsz Yuen

感謝主辦機構「教育倡行」、各位協辦和贊助機構、公民教育委員會及中文大學提供場地和支援,成功舉辦這次活動,我們從中獲益良多。

我們認識很多關於政制、政策和立法會的運作。在將近半年的活動中,我們有機會在立法會實習,收穫良多;在模擬立法會,我們亦有機會參與公眾事務的討論,發表青少年的聲音。

5A 11 李康盈 Lee Hong Ying

透過這次培訓計劃,除了認識不同政策和香港政制之外,還令我掌握議論及發言技巧。由撰寫函件與及發言稿,到模擬立法會的發言和回應,都考驗我的表達能力和臨場應變能力。

另外,我很榮幸可以到江玉歡議員辦事處進行兩日工作體驗。這是一個難得的機會,令我能親身體驗立法會議員的工作,學會以不同持份者的角度分析時事,從而探討往後更佳的政策方案。我亦感激江議員願意給我這次寶貴的學習機會,讓我獲益匪淺。

5A 范珮詩 Fan Pui Sze

在這個充滿機遇的社會,有很多東西等着我們參與,從而令我們學會從多角度了解社會上的大小事務,為社會的發展出一份力。

我很榮幸能夠參與「立法者們」的活動,從中了解更多有關政策及公共事務的資訊。由不同議員的帶領之下,由立法者的角度出發,了解不同政策制定的過程,及一同討論對不同政策的看法,從而更全面地去思考社會事務。

其中,我最為深刻的是「模擬立法會」。來自全港不同中學的學生,一同就着「青少年及兒童精神健康」的議題,以立法會的形式進行討論,發表己見,思考現時相關政策的可改善之處。我們與由青少年們模擬的議員激烈討論的同時,亦能與由議員模擬的局長進行有關政策上的交流,從而關注在討論中被忽略的政策措施,加深我對政策的了解。

透過這次活動,明白青年對社會公共事務的重要性。正如國家主席習近平所言:「青年興,則香港興;青年發展,則香港發展;青年有未來,則香港有未來」,作為青年的一份子,我們應踏出第一步,積極參與更多社會公共事務,了解自己與社會之間的關係。擴闊自己的眼界及思維模式,貢獻社會,積極推動社會發展。

崇德社最佳服務獎得獎報捷

本校崇德社(義工隊)一直致力服務社區,讓同學們透過不同的義工服務中學習各種技能,培養正向價值觀。上年度本校崇德社策劃了一系列的服務計劃幫助區內長者,包括照顧腦退化症患者、教授長者使用智能手機等,還有由學生主導、設計了一系列工作坊,包括編織繩結、利用3D打印製作手機支架等。另一方面,長者亦教導學生製作蘿蔔糕和雞仔餅等傳統小吃,讓學生從長者身上學習,打破固有的刻板印象。這些服務學習計劃獲得崇德社的認同,成功在眾多中學脫穎而出,奪得2022-2023年度的最佳服務獎,以及三千元作為崇德社的營運資金。在此感謝崇德社的幹事以及所有曾經參與義工活動的學生,本校日後會繼續努力推動服務學習,促進長幼共融。

香港中文大學社會責任及可持續發展處︰設計思考 2023 暑期訓練計劃

本校公民與社會發展科派出一隊中五級學生(5A陳美妍、譚嘉傑、黃梓欣、邱子圓),於今年八月至十月份,參加思考2023暑期訓練計劃「消除貧窮.零飢世代」。此計畫由香港中文大學、社會責任及可持續發展署同SDSN HK聯合舉辦。是次計畫聚焦於兩個可持續發展目標︰無貧窮和零飢餓。飢餓和貧窮問題非一日之寒,中學生身爲社會的一份子,應學習相關議題了解基層市民生活苦況,並探索如何為扶貧工作貢獻。在計畫中,學生需要自行編排和剪輯,創作一系列的Reels短片,旨在提高學生對香港社會貧窮和飢餓問題的關注程度,以及改善社會問題的創新方案。七段短片的內容詳見中文大學的有關網址(https://designthinking2023.mocc.cuhk.edu.hk/school-list/)。

四位學生製作的短片在眾多計畫作品中脫穎而出,榮獲最傑出表現獎(團體),並於2023年11月17日,頒發獎狀及二千元書券。

第九屆陳贊一博士聯校微型小說創作獎得獎報捷

由陳贊一博士教育基金香港微型小說教育及研究中心主辨的第九屆陳贊一博士聯校微型小說創作獎(2022-2023),希望透過創作比賽,鼓勵學生寫作,提升學生的正向思維、生命質素和他們的觀察、思考、反省、歸納、創作與寫作的能力。

5A梁鎔同學在作品入圍後,通過評審,最終在芸芸作品中脫穎而出,勇奪高中組亞軍。

評審評價如下:

「梁同學的文章〈毛衣〉中毛衣是聯繫祖孫兩代的一道橋,一道有情的橋:外祖母雖然患上老人失智症,已經到達不能認出孫子的地步,但仍念念不忘要趕在冬天給孫子編織毛衣;孫子雖然已經有一整櫃外婆『第一次』為他編織的不合身的毛衣,他仍滿心歡喜的穿上。這是因為雙方都對對方有情。作者不選擇直接寫出阿婆有什麼病,而是描述她的行為舉止,讓讀者去感受孫子阿明的感覺。故事在阿明打開衣櫃,櫃裡一片白(因為掛滿了阿婆織的白色毛衣) ,『阿明……緊閉衣櫃,緊閉這個秘密』結束。作者成功地以淡淡然的方式傳遞出一股濃濃的祖孫『情』,也營造了一個令人印象深刻的結局。」

5A梁鎔同學〈毛衣〉全文如下:

  老婦瞇着眼睛,眼瞼幼得像一根線,眼光釘在毛線上。手掌的神經猶如和大腦失去了連接,陌生的雙手以木針勾毛線,但毛線在另一木針上滑下來,木針刺到老婦的手指,使她搓揉指頭,甚是疼痛。她心想:冬天快到了,要趕工完成,當即不理會痛楚而加快速度。老婦拿捏力度,似是在鋼線上散步,不敢呼吸且眼神聚焦於毛線的空隙,手掌好不容易才不震動,以左手抓緊毛線,終於以木針勾起。老婦呼了口氣,暫且放鬆而把毛線堆放在膝上,毛線太滑,從老婦的膝上逃走到地面,嚇得老婦立時捉緊,那毛線堆便是她的生命,不能再離開手,於是她繼續編織毛衣。夕陽漸漸浸沒在山堆中,殘存的黃光悄悄跨越窗花,落在老婦編織的毛衣上,整個下午老婦都在織毛衣。

  「叮噹」門鈴聲劃破沉寂的空氣,少年的手指尚按在開關,鈴聲餘音尚在迴盪,呼喊聲便緊隨它。少年喊「阿婆,是阿明啊!」在室中的老婦仍在織毛衣,全盤心神放在毛衣上,聽不到聲音。阿明等了五分鐘,嚷道:「阿婆在嗎?」他依舊耐心靜候,目光始終沒離開木門,希望一開門便能看見她。老婦一回神即說:「來了。」老婦打開木門,猶疑地看着阿明,陌生的輪廓進入老婦的眼眶,她的腦袋卻從沒有登記他的資料,沒法想起他是誰。阿明輕聲地說:「阿婆,是我!阿明!」且輕拍她的肩膀。他親切的聲線喚起老婦對他的印象,她便輕摟着他說:「乖孫,你幾個月沒來。」老婦記得孫子上一次探望是數月前,但阿明其實兩星期前曾到訪。他沒有戳破真相,只說:「是啊!很久沒有來啊!」老人緊捉住他的手,對他的印象始終留在過去,沒有因歲月流逝而改變,仍然視他為昔日的那個孩童,她腦海中的他不會長大。老婦和他一起走進她家。

  老婦腳步乏力,踏出兩步便似是要跌倒,但她急切地走到毛衣前,提起道:「阿明,你看這件毛衣,是我織給你的,我第一次織,也不錯吧!」老婦說罷便把它拿到阿明的眼前,且說:「你試一試。」阿明把身體攢進白色的毛衣內,伸出雙手,輕微調整它。那毛衣不太合身,兩邊衣袖甚短,阿明有半節手臂不被包覆,他卻故意拉長毛衣,裝作甚為合身。毛衣鬆散,似乎要退化成一堆雜亂的毛線。毛線頭搔得阿明渾身痕癢,似有虱子在皮膚底層亂爬。從外看來,毛衣甚是華麗,卻不知它並不舒適,似是艷麗的玫瑰,漂亮的外表卻暗藏長刺。可是阿明的臉上卻流露出滿意且快樂的笑容,不斷撫摸着那毛衣,手掌不願離開貌似舒適的毛衣。他向老婦說:「你第一次便織得那麼好!很舒服!」老婦登時笑出來,說:「真‥‥‥真的嗎?」她說不出別的話,只懂得為阿明的稱讚而高興。阿明笑着點頭,說:「多謝你,阿婆!」老婦笑得更燦爛了,伸長右手,輕撫阿明的頭髮,她又說:「你穿着吧,一會兒離開時很冷。」其後老婦和阿明一起吃晚飯,阿明仍是穿着那毛衣,沒有一刻脫下來。吃過晚飯,外婆為阿明拉緊毛衣,生怕他回家時着涼。

  老婦聽着寒風刮着窗戶,想到阿明在街上獨自對抗寒風而擔心,轉念想到他穿着自己編織的毛衣而安心。阿明被寒風刺得低下頭,但想到自己穿着外婆苦心編織的毛衣而感到溫暖,彷彿感受到外婆擁抱自己時的體溫。

  阿明安穩回到家中,他脫下毛衣,找來衣架把它掛在衣櫃裡。一打開櫃門,裡頭一片白,盡是外婆所編織的毛衣,鬆散的短衣袖、上半勉強掛在衣架上,下半卻像要斷開。阿明每次探訪外婆時,總是得到她「第一次」編織的毛衣,她總是忘記已送過多件毛衣給孫子,卻總不會忘記要為他編織毛衣。阿明放好毛衣後,便緊閉衣櫃,緊閉這個秘密。

Hong Kong 200 Leadership Training Programme 23-24

Reflection by 5A Tam Ka Kit Leo
(Gold Winner of “Project for Hong Kong” and Awardee of “Outstanding Participant”)

“Let's join and see what will happen.” I told myself with uncertainty when I received the invitation from Ms. Ng to join the Hong Kong 200 Leadership Training Programme organized by the HKFYG Leadership Institute. Looking back, I am grateful that I grabbed this precious opportunity.

There is always “give and take”. During the summer holiday, I devoted dozens of hours to attending the overnight camp, lectures, and skill labs. The takeaways were the memories of camping with hundreds of new friends, visiting enterprises such as GreenPrice and IKEA to study their operation principles to contribute to society, and skill labs that equipped me with storytelling and policy research abilities. The programme provided a large variety of events that comprehensively prepared young people like me to be the future leaders of the city.

During the programme, lots of new tasks were introduced. Yet, I tried to step out of my comfort zone and be proactive, in order to achieve the higher and greater levels. “Project for Hong Kong” was the last mission for us, examining the social issue of “pain point” and proposing innovative ideas to cope with it, which was the most challenging part, which required both analytical and problem-solving skills. Unawareness of SEN students was the societal pain point that I chose to deal with, by innovating games that educate Non-SEN students about SEN topics. Aiming to step out of my comfort zone, I took the role of group leader and guided my team in the preparation of the proposal pitching. The proposal was a great success and even won the pitching of $9000 supporting funding to turn the proposal into reality. One of the judges, Prof. Vivian Wong, the Hon Professor of the Medical Faculty at the University of Hong Kong, gave thought-provoking comments on the project. My horizon and experience were much enriched after the project pitching as well as the programme.

HK200 has left remarkable and valuable memories and experiences. Looking back, I am grateful that I grabbed this precious opportunity this summer.

Reflection by 5D So Ping On

During the summer holiday of 2023, I was pleased to have completed the “Hong Kong 200 Leadership Training Program” organized by the HKFYG Leadership Institute. The program 58 day, was a worthwhile experience for me to contribute to my community. Serendipitously, “Hong Kong 200” provided an opportunity for me to explore the city we are living, through helping to sort out some problems, and tring to solve them.

Participating in the leadership training camp “Project for Hong Kong”, I encountered lots of remarkable students from different schools, and prominent Hong Kong leaders such as Professor Vivian Wong, Honorary Professor of The University of Hong Kong. As the say goes, “all things are difficult before they are easy.” The programme motivated me to step out of my comfort zone and improve myself. Additionally, collaborating with my groupmates in “Project for Hong Kong”, my horizons were widened and strong team spirit was developed. Although it was frazzling to work on the project, the valuable experience still dwelled in my memory. In addition, the indelible journal in “Hong Kong 200” greatly improved my abilities. Despite not getting top places in the “Project for Hong Kong”, it was worth spending time on the project.

“Don't be afraid to ask questions. Independent thinking is the golden key to overcoming obstacles,” shared Mr Timothy Tong, former President of Hong Kong Polytechnic University, on the first day of the program. I will bear in mind his teaching and try applying it in my life. Being one of the members of “Hong Kong 200”, I truly believe that with concerted efforts, we could build a better Hong Kong in the foreseeable future.

Reflection by 5D Chan Hiu Ching

Have you ever imagined what kind of leaders the future world will need? The answer can probably be found in the HK200 Leadership Training Programme.

It was one of the most life-changing experiences to take part in the Hong Kong 200 Leadership Training Program organised by the HKFYG Leadership. In May 2023, I was surprised to be recommended to join this programme. However, I encountered the first problem very soon —— every participant was asked to write about what they have done for Hong Kong. Being a 16 years old teen, I could not think of anything to write. But later, after joining the training, this blank page was filled up.

During the intensive training of the programme during the summer vacation, hybrid and diversified lessons and skill labs were provided to improve our presentation and public speaking skills. I was really grateful to join this programme. My critical thinking and creativity were strongly boosted through the interviews and sharing given by different social stakeholders and representatives. My social network and horizon were also greatly expanded. Many elites with unique talents from different schools gathered in the programme, exchanging their ideas and thoughts on different social issues in Hong Kong. Numerous solutions and answers were born as a result of our discussion and collision. Our awareness and thinking towards multiple perspectives were effectively nurtured. In the Project for Hong Kong, chances were given to explore Hong Kong social problems in various aspects and brainstorm ideas to solve these problems by using big data. Despite the fact that the project did consume lots of time and energy, it was really worth it.

To sum up, I would like to end my sharing by encouraging all of the Hong Kong teenagers to put their efforts into brushing colour into Hong Kong's future —— just like the slogan of the HK200 programme (“Brushing colours into Hong Kong's future”). Let's embark on our journey here, without being afraid of the unknown in the future.

香港聯合國教科文組織協會主辦︰第十一屆可持續發展教育學程計劃 2022/23

本校公民與社會發展科早前派出兩隊中四至中五級學生,參與由香港聯合國教科文組織協會主辦、香港可持續發展教育學院及香港教育大學協辦的「第十一屆可持續發展教育學程計劃」。該計劃響應「聯合國2030年可持續發展議程」以及聯合國教科文組織「教育的未來」倡議,通過體驗式教學培養學生可持續發展知識、態度、能力,包括多元、創新思維、協作能力等,促進學生全人發展,建立積極價值觀。本年度計劃以「古蹟保育傳承文化」為主題。學生在聽取專題講座後,走進香港著名活化保育建築「香港醫學博物館」以及「大館」,感受歷史、保育氣氛,聆聽建築物背後有趣的故事,領會文化傳承與可持續發展的關係。學生在活動後需配合自主研習、團隊合作,完成書面報告及海報,並於2023年3月25日進行匯報。本校七名中五學生:招艷馨、李芷咏、麥穎茵、胡洛然、伍嘉騏、高靖涵及涂允菲,以「土瓜灣十三街唐樓群」作為主題,親自探訪、考察,設計一個可持續的居住環境,結果榮獲最佳海報獎,設計將海報分為上下兩部分,上方為唐樓群獨有的十三個街道路牌,而下方為唐樓群彩虹色的建築風貌,黑白與彩色相互搭配,將土瓜灣十三街唐樓群的細節特色和整體外觀充分展現,極具宣傳效果。以下為其中兩名得獎學生的活動心得:

5C招艷馨

參加是次課程,我與同學一起參觀古跡,一起「大開腦洞」,探討古蹟保育和可持續發展,最終以「活化土瓜灣十三街唐樓群」為主題,針對唐樓群的情況,提出活化計劃。因此,我深入地認識了十三街唐樓群,還有土瓜灣,甚至其他香港古蹟,為香港擁有這些古蹟而高興。此外,這是我第一次在眾多人面前匯報,起初我有點忐忑不安,幸而同學們互相鼓勵,得以全力以赴。

5C涂允菲

在這次課程中,除了對古跡保育有更深入的認識外,與組員攜手去創建一個可持續發展社區的過程更讓我獲益良多。從商議以甚麼地區為藍本,到實地考察,再分工合作,搜集資料,整個過程艱辛不易;當項目逐漸完成,我們有莫大的滿足感,這更是我們大多數組員第一次在大眾面前匯報,我認為登上講台的那刻,我們不僅是設計了一個可持續發展的社區,更是跨越了自己心中「不可能」的關卡。

大埔及北區分會中學校際乒乓球錦標賽

2022 Jeju Cup International Judo Tournament organized by Korea Judo Association

Reflection by 1A13 Kwan Chui Yi

I have been learning Judo for 6 years since 2016. Although I was not very fond of it at first, my interest in it has grown gradually. After 6 years of training, I've attained the Brown Belt.

Nominated by the Judo Association of Hong Kong, I joined an international judo competition in Jeju, Korea in December 2022. I was grateful to be given this chance to take part in the competition. The competitors from different countries had excellent skills. I was lucky to get the second-runner up. Compared to players in Hong Kong, I felt that all competitors had great passion for the sport. They spend a lot of time training to better their skills. This competition was truly an eye-opening experience that I enjoyed a lot. I hope I can get better results next time!

STEAM教育博覽會2022

本校五位中四級學生陳進杰、周本軒、李浩榮、廖嘉朗和謝楚珩,參加由教育局主辦博覽會「線上活動」設學校展覽活動,獲30個機構支持,包括國家重點實驗室、專上院校、學校議會、專業團體、非政府組織及其他政府部門。本校同學在中學組中獲得金獎,超過70所本地中小學及兩所深圳市學校參展,主題圍繞「自動化設計」、「人工智能」、「大數據」、「可持續發展」及「智慧生活」。

本校參賽項目名稱是「未來巴士廠數學及科技的應用」,源自兩個獲獎中學數學專題習作:2016/17年中學數學專題習作比賽比賽「正方形的輪子(優異表現)」及2018/19年中學數學專題習作比賽比賽「汽水罐問題及其擴展(季軍)」。

大多數人以為,數學可能只是使用複雜的公式和計算,日常生活中不大用到。然而,事實恰恰相反,數學幾乎存在於生活的各方面,可以幫助我們理解事物的基本原理和世界運作的方式,此次同學的比賽作品正好是一個應用數學原理到現實生活的好例子。

Tai Po District Schools Singing Competition 2022-2023

Congratulations to our School Choir for achieving the Silver Award in the Tai Po District Schools Singing Competition 2022-2023.

3C SIU Cheuk Ting

It's unbelievable that our choir received the silver award in the Tai Po District Schools Singing Competition. Whenever I have seen the Silver Award trophy, I have always felt warm.

A few weeks ago, Miss Wu told us we would take part in a competition on the 17th of February. At that time, I was extremely serious about that because I know all choir competitions have been suspended since the covid-19 broke out. However, now we can have competitions again, which means we can win glory for our school again. It's my dream and my pleasure to do this.

Initially I felt that we were not that united as I had to encourage and appeal to our choir members many times to memorise the music and lyrics. However, only a few people or even no one came to extra rehearsals together during recess. Although I know they're busy, it still made me a little bit anxious. Nonetheless, one week before the competition, our performance was so beautiful and fluent, just few people had some careless mistakes. I soon became more confident as I could see that they had practiced enough at home before the competition.

During those weeks, Miss Wu arranged more training for us. She practiced with each voice part respectively. She assisted us to correct every note and beat with plenty of patience. Additionally, we were been guided how to sing the end sound of the words clearly by our conductor, Mr. Hui. He also taught us how to relax and to be in our element to sing well. They are the people I want to thank the most. Because of their support, and our members' diligence, we achieved a fantastic result.

When I recall the memory of that day, I remember that when we sang the first song 'Zum Gali' , we were quite nervous but soon we recovered and we got more confident when we sang the later part. Our final ranking was top four out of ten schools and we got the silver award. It is the fruit of our hard work. Getting this award, I feel proud of the WSC choir because we can prove to others that the WSC Choir is capable. We can prove to them that Wong Shiu Chi Secondary School students are not only good at sports, but also music. That afternoon, I watched many schools' brilliant performances. Although we are not at their level yet, I believe in the near future, we can overtake them and I hope we can win a gold medal during my time at secondary school.

3C 丁思雅

很榮幸能夠在合唱團擔任鋼琴伴奏的角色,並在大埔區校際歌唱比賽2022-2023(中學組)中獲得銀獎。

合唱團中的每一個角色都缺一不可:無論是指揮、老師、還是團員;但伴奏這個角色比其他更大壓力,不容有失。

這是我第一次加入合唱團並參加比賽。經過這次比賽後,我最感謝的便是我們的指導老師——胡老師。起初,我的心情固然緊張,當時甚至連最簡單的開聲練習的和弦我都錯漏百出。不常與人合作的我也在為歌曲伴奏的時候出過不少差錯。胡老師都會教我如何改進。她常常鼓勵我,在練習至比賽都陪伴我,成為我的「強心針」。

這位良師讓我在進步的過程中取得了質的飛躍——我非常感謝她在比賽前幾個星期主動提出要與我單獨練習,不惜犧牲她的休息時間來教導我。

除此之外,我也感謝一直以來陪伴者我們的指揮——許老師。他的認真態度感染了我們,讓我們勇於面對挑戰。他輕聲的鼓勵和豎起的拇指,都是讓我們前進的動力。

說實話,比賽即將來臨時我並沒有想像中緊張。我一進場,就聽到了幼兒園組別的小朋友可愛純真的歌聲,他們的動作笨拙可愛,我從他們的表演中得到啟發。

我不禁在想,從小到大,我上過大大小小的舞台。可是,我真正享受過幾次?每次都戰戰兢兢,直到比賽完畢了才鬆了一口氣。我意識到,好像從來沒有去認真體會舞台帶給我的感覺。所以,儘管這次我只是司琴,台下的觀眾未必看到我;但是他們可以享受我們整個合唱團富有感情的美妙歌聲,享受我指尖奏出的妙韻。這次我才真正感受舞台下觀眾評委給予我們的掌聲,感受這令人難忘的合唱團比賽,讓我永遠銘記於心。

Hong Kong 200 Leadership Training Program by the HKFYG Leadership Institute 2022-23

Reflection by 5D Tse Wing Sum, Summi

Invited by Ms. Ng, I accepted the offer of applying for Hong Kong 200 Leadership Training Program organized by the HKFYG Leadership Institute 2022-23 beyond doubt. Amidst pandemic, HK200 applicants were required to write an essay about our commitment to Hong Kong --the thing I have done for Hong Kong. It was a big struggle for an ordinary secondary student like me to figure out what I had ever contributed to our city. After successfully enrolling in the leadership programme, it was my great pleasure to understand more about how influential stakeholders around us expect the quality that young leaders should process by learning from the interviews and sharing of diverse representatives and talents from all walks of life in Hong Kong. I was most impressed by Mr. Wong Tung-shun, the CEO of HSBC Asia-Pacific, in his sharing about “to understand, as to be understood”, which is also one of the seven habits of “Leader in Me”.

During the intensive, hybrid training and local field-trips within these few months, I delightfully attained greater insights and a wider horizon over the societal problems and the needs of different groups of our population, such as that of the elderly and the ethnic minority. With a deeper understanding about the community, the programme participants developed and constructed the Community Map and Project for Hong Kong. I could still clearly recall the tough time we worked on these projects and tasks with intense deadlines. I was ecstatic to share Tai Po in my Community Map, and was honoured to be awarded with the Top 3 Community Map. Despite losing the top place in the Project for Hong Kong, efforts did not go futile and they gave me an extensive view on Hong Kong and hands-on, practical experiences on writing proposals.

Thomas (another HK200 participant from our school) and I went through an exhausting and packed schedule in the HKFYG Leadership Institute in Fanling 2022 Summer and Fall. Nevertheless, I am certain that a sense of commitment to Hong Kong has sprouted in my heart -- even though a remarkable and significant change was yet to be made. As one of the youths, who are the most valuable asset in Hong Kong, we could surely brush colour into Hong Kong's future.

Reflection by 5D Lau Tsz Yu, Thomas

From July to November 2022, I successfully completed the 60-hour Hong Kong 200 Leadership Training Program organized by the HKFYG Leadership Institute. In this progamme, we were honoured to converse with the judges who were prominent leaders in Hong Kong, and received intensive training in the leadership introductory course, core leadership training and team spirit training in order to complete the Project for HK, as well as the social experience and practice in the community.

I have learnt a wonderful lesson that the world is bigger than what I had seen. I met a lot of outstanding students and realized that comparing with them I am also competent enough. In HK200, I had lots of chances to meet the influential and famous leaders in HK such as meeting and exchanging ideas with the judges including the chairman of the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government, and the vice-chairman of the Home and Youth Affairs Bureau. I have developed my self-confidence under different circumstances. Besides, in the preparation and the pitching of the project for Hong Kong, I learned a lot about team work and independent stamina. Completing a project is not easy because it involves a lot of time, effort, data analysis and project design on behalf of yourself as well as your product users.

Lastly, I was also delighted to explore various social issues and join the workshops about the entire society, elderly care, environmental conservation, inclusion and more issues. I visited different elderly technology and innovation centres, elderly homes and environmental protection centres. What I have learnt from these experiences is that there are still a lot of people who need a helping hand from the society. There are still a lot of social issues and problems awaiting for solutions.

我從來沒有把勝敗放在首位,因為對我而言,辯論比賽最大的價值,是我和夥伴同心協力完成比賽,包括一起研究辯題、互相協助以解決大家的疑難,以及合力為各種不可預測的情況作應變。最後,最讓我感恩的是,我能夠獲得這些比賽經驗,讓我逐漸掌握各種辯論技巧、待人接物,以及培養面對壓力的正確心態。

總括而言,我從這次比賽中獲益良多,期待日後能在辯論比賽再接再厲,並將自己從中所學的知識靈活運用在生活及學業各方面。

我很高興能代表學校參加香港大律師公會辯論比賽2022(中文組別)。由於比賽於校內考試期間舉行,要同時兼顧溫習和準備辯論比賽實在不容易,所以我在時間分配遇上不少困難。儘管如此,老師、教練和隊友們都在賽前工作給予我莫大的支持與幫助,令我順利在比賽前作充分準備。

另外,是次比賽也是我第一次接觸「自由辯論」,因此我在準備過程中感到分外緊張。雖然未能在比賽中發揮練習時的表現,但我也十分感恩有這次擴闊眼界的機會。

最後,比賽中所學到的辯論技巧、待人處事的態度、以及面對壓力的能力,將會讓我畢生受用!

5A 蘇珈文

能夠代表學校參與大律師公會辯論賽是一個非常難得的機會。面對強勁的對手,我們每一場都抱着應對挑戰的心態學習。

在準備比賽的過程中,時間分配和分工合作非常重要,這次我們處理得比以前更游刃有餘。我亦在比賽中大開眼界,在觀察其他參賽隊伍的表現中獲益良多。最後,通過與隊員們的共同努力,我們勢如破竹,晉身總決賽。對於我們而言,成敗是次要的,我們都明白,從中汲取的寶貴經驗才是這場比賽真正的意義。無論在與隊友合作、辯論技巧,還是心理素質,我們都得以成長。

最後,我們感謝林老師、教練和隊友一直的支援,有此佳績,背後的所有人都功不可沒。期望日後我可以再有機會參與其他辯論比賽,更上一層樓,亦期望師弟、師妹日後能夠再創佳績。

2021國際初中科學奧林匹克 —— 香港選拔比賽

本校同學參與了由香港數理教育學會丶教育局資優教育組和香港資優教育學苑合辦的2021國際初中科學奧林匹克 —— 香港選拔比賽。比賽在2021年9月26日於長沙灣天主教英文中學舉行。本校3C班黃逸藍同學獲得了二等獎。以下是黃逸藍同學對是次比賽的反思。

3C 黃逸藍

去年九月,我和五位同學參加了「2021年國際青少年科學奧林匹克」競賽,我很榮幸代表學校參加比賽。通過這次寶貴的機會,令我對科學有更深的了解。

作為一個中二學生,當時我對生物、物理和化學的認知十分膚淺,僅限於在綜合科學課堂中學到的知識。因此,我和同學參加了專項訓練課程,為比賽做好準備。在培訓期間,我們嘗試做歷屆試卷。儘管科學詞彙並不難理解,但我仍然對那些理論和公式感到困惑。幸好,在任義建老師的悉心指導下,我對科學概念逐漸清晰起來。

經過一個月的訓練,我掌握了更多科學知識,對那些複雜的理論不再感到迷惘。最終比賽中僥倖獲得二等獎。

總括來說,這次經歷拓闊了我的視野,我和隊友一起度過了一段美好的時光。再次謝謝任老師的指導。

2021香港物理奧林匹克

二零二一年九月十二日,本校15名同學參加由香港資優教育學院舉辦的「2021香港物理奧林匹克」比賽,其中5D班賴煒盛同學獲得三等獎,而盧日君同學(已離校)則獲得優異獎,謹此致賀。

賴煒盛

我很榮幸能參加這個比賽,對我來說更是一個珍貴的機會,可以大大增進我的物理知識和經驗。

過程中,香港科技大學的導師為我們準備了線上培訓課程,教授我們不同的物理理論和概念。此外,我更非常感謝我的物理老師任老師,他不但給予我們支持和幫助,更教授我們一些課本以外的知識,有助我理解比賽中那些深奧的物理理論。

僥倖得到三等獎,實是意外之得;再次感謝任老師和科大導師的指導。

盧日君

去年九月,我獲老師提名參加「2021香港物理奧林匹克」比賽,僥倖獲得優異獎。在比賽前,我嘗試操練歷屆題目。儘管題目的範圍大多都是我曾經涉獵,但我對艱深的題目卻無從入手。幸好,當我有不明白時,任義建老師和林惠儀老師非常樂意解答我的問題,並詳盡解釋,使我能夠鞏固所學,更得新知。我非常感激兩位老師,不但幫助我出賽獲奬,更令我物理知識大有提升。

公布結果前我沒有預計會獲奬,得悉獲奬後實在驚喜;我從中明白到做事需要相信自己,提升信心。這次比賽亦能夠讓我跳出自己舒適圈,擴闊視野,挑戰自我,是一次很好的經驗。我日後也會善用這次所學的物理知識,而這次比賽經驗亦會用到其他範疇上。

郭安琪同學的〈我家的地板〉仔細描述家中地板與家人間的關係,由物及情,抒發成長中的憂慮及側寫家人的關愛,情感細膩。以下為得獎作品:

我家的地板

整個人脫了力,陷進了沙發的懷抱之中,我這才長長地舒了口氣。顧自地歪斜癱坐著,早上熨好的校服此時終於破裂出一道道皺紋。午後的陽光透過磨得鋥亮的地板,填滿了一室的寂靜。光亮下,地上卻一粒塵埃、一根頭髮也見不著,只見方方正正的磚塊關住了窗外綠葉青蔥的春景,盈滿地晃蕩在我腳邊。這個時候,家裡的地板才有生氣,不那麼冷冰冰。

瓷磚地板在冬天更覺得滲骨。腳不經意地與地面相觸,立馬縮了起來,可瓷磚咬人的溫度一直停留在腳心,要順著爬上身軀。媽媽像是不畏寒,即使在冬日,也要把屋子的地板裡裡外外地拖一遍。我見得最多的就是她忙活著拖地的身影,一道道橫斜在地板上。吱吱——海綿滑過地面的聲響,在一片沉默裡吶喊。

媽媽常抱怨地上全是我掉的頭髮,我也回嘴「也可能是你的!」媽媽便不說話了,反倒是吸塵機響了起來,嗡動著橫過一片片瓷磚。我坐在房間的書桌前學習,卻能分明地聽見細碎的微塵捲入吸塵機的聲音,嘩啦嘩啦的。一曲終了,浸過水的海綿在地上淌過,吱吱水聲讓我想起了藏在門縫的頭髮。吸塵拖地的聲音輪番響在門外,這是家裡一日中最熱鬧的時刻,連媽媽順勢走動的腳步聲都重了些,像是地板跳起了舞。

每日都重複著昨日,我總放學回家後便窩在房間裡,家人回來時各自問候一聲又轉而歸於了沉默。地板上無形的腳印相互交接而過,這才使家人間有了更多交集。六點左右,爸爸媽媽前後腳回到家,踢踏的腳步敲在地板上,一串響在廚房,一串響在客廳,是一段段分岔路口。八點,三串腳步齊齊落在了餐桌,六隻腳不遠不近地踏在同幾塊磚上,腳心卻沒那麼冷了,更覺得腳下暖烘烘的。紅燈之後,三串腳步短暫地在幾塊磚上相聚,便轉了綠燈,陸續地地上又多了幾道分散的航線。

黯淡的燈光下,客廳空得只剩下昏暗。只有一縷自媽媽門縫中透顯出來的光沿著瓷白的地板發散在一角。我不禁在想究竟多少次我緊閉著房門時,媽媽所見的也是這幅情形。吝嗇的房門隔絕了大半要吐露的光,只留一星半點順著門縫和被擦得透亮的地板留給門外的人。

仔細想來,我的房門總是緊閉著的,餘下的門縫藉著地板的幫助,向外界——媽媽,施捨著窺探我個人世界的機會。夜間,房間的燈光總是容易被光滑的地板暴露了出沒的行蹤。聽到媽媽半夜的響動時,只掩住那盞檯燈,眼睛盯著地板亮不亮。生怕一個不注意,地板便向媽媽告密。

現今也一樣,媽媽房裡的暖燈自地板傾瀉而出,流滿門外。只是她的地板嘴巴一點也不嚴實,大喇喇地亮堂著,全心全意地肆意與我分享媽媽的世界。

小時候家裡鋪的是木地板,坑坑窪窪的,一點兒也比不上瓷磚的無瑕,我卻很喜歡。那時我常和媽媽在地板上剪紙,她捏著我的手慢慢地帶著我剪。大剪子總想著吃我的小手,我一脫離了媽媽的助力,剪子就不住地磕在地板上。砸出了地上一個個小洞似的坑,砸破了媽媽的好脾氣。而腳下的瓷磚,長久的無瑕關起了一切情緒。即使地上堆滿了密密一團頭髮,只要媽媽看見我立在書案前的背影,便沉默地掃走了一地的不滿,徒留下虛無的潔白。我莫名眷戀童年那片滿是裂紋的木地板,直徑毫米大小的小洞裡填滿著我與媽媽相處的回憶。雖然那片木地板色澤啞啞的,但在我心裡,從前無數個夜晚我纏著要媽媽陪我入睡時那抹越窗而來、灑在地面上的月光,卻比任何時候的光更讓我難以割捨,也遠勝於瓷磚那攝人的亮。

午後氣溫漸升,我伸出手去探那塊如鏡子照映著景色的瓷磚。陽光把它曬得暖烘烘的,像是要把它恆久地溫熱起來。多想把陽光存起來,好讓家裡的地板永遠亮堂著,帶著炙人的溫度。

CIE English Public Speaking Contest 2021 – Merit Award

4A Tam Ka Hei Michael and 4A Wong Tsz Ching Michelle participated in the CIE English Speaking Contest 2021 organised by the The College of International Education (CIE), Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU). They filmed a short speech on the theme 'Creation' in the preliminary round. With their impressive speeches and delivery, they were shortlisted as one of the 12 finalists, among 102 participants. 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!

Sharing from TAM Ka Hei 4A

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!

2020國際初中科學奧林匹克 – 香港選拔比賽

本校同學參與了由香港數理教育學會丶教育局資優教育組和香港資優教育學苑合辦的二零二零國際初中科學奧林匹克 ─ 香港選拔比賽。比賽於二零一九年九月二十八日,假長沙灣天主教英文中學舉行。本校3A (2019-2020)賴煒盛同學獲得二等獎;而3D (2019-2020)林永健和許哲琨同學獲得三等獎。以下是他們對是次比賽的反思。

3A (2019-2020)賴煒盛同學的反思

首先,我很榮幸能參加2020年國際青少年科學奧林匹克競賽。於我而言,這是一個獲得知識和經驗的好機會,我也從中學到了很多科學知識。

我在暑假時知悉要參加比賽,但我對比賽詳情卻一無所知,而且我們只有一個月的時間為比賽作準備,這令我感到非常擔心。可是,任老師、謝老師和楊老師不但教授我們課本外的知識,更為我們安排了密集的培訓,我便逐步掌握這些科學知識。另外,因為是次比賽中要通過分析資料來回答問題,所以我的分析能力也提升了。

最後,我非常感謝這幾位老師,若沒有他們的幫助,我相信我也不會得到二等獎。

3D (2019-2020)林永健同學的反思

我很榮幸能參加2020年國際青少年科學奧林匹克競賽,並榮獲二等獎。

首先,我想感謝任老師、謝老師和楊老師在賽前利用課後時間為我們提供訓練和耐心地教導我們。他們不但教授我們很多新知識,還教導我們如何解答艱深的問題。起初,我對自己沒有信心,認為自己不能在是次比賽中得到好成績;但經過老師循循善誘的教導後,我的自信心大大提升,也令我更能掌握新學的知識。我很感激教過我們的老師,如果沒有他們的協助,我們也不能有此佳績。

最後,我很感激能得到參賽的機會,這不但增長了我的科學知識,還給予我參加比賽的經驗。老師,謝謝您!

3D (2019-2020)許哲琨同學的反思

獲取2020年國際青少年奧林匹克科學大賽的三等獎,是我的榮耀。我為此感到十分的喜悅和感動。

當初老師鑒於我科學考試成績良好,所以通知我可參加科學競賽的時候,我感到至高無上的榮耀,因為這是一種能力上的認可。感謝任老師、謝老師以及楊老師的指導,讓我的知識能快速增長。我也十分感激老師啓蒙了我的興趣。如沒有老師們的幫助,我便無法參加科學競賽以及獲得三等獎。

城市文學獎2020

香港城市大學主辦的「城市文學獎2020」旨在推廣學界文學寫作風氣,提升中學及大專生的寫作水平。本校文學班6D劉子衡同學與黃寶珊同學(2020-2021中六生),在作品入圍後,通過評審,最終在芸芸作品中脫穎而出,劉子衡同學勇奪中學散文組季軍,黃寶珊同學榮獲散文組推薦獎。

劉子衡同學的〈童年〉用樸實細密的文字描寫故鄉童年生活,情感細膩,充滿濃厚鄉土氣息。劉同學除獲獎金、獎狀及獎座外,稍後更獲大會全費資助(來回機票連食宿)參加於2021年舉辦的「與作家同行‧閱讀他方的城市」文學散步團。

趣寫文學足印

由香港中文大學及香港文學研究中心合辦的「趣寫文學足印」,透過文學景點考察影片,讓作家帶領學生欣賞相關文學作品,從而培養閱讀、創作的興趣。

香港律師會主辦「青Teen講場十周年」《基本法》網上問答比賽及「法你通識」網上挑戰賽學校獎︰躋身全港首十名

本校學生積極參與由香港律師會舉辦的「青Teen講場十周年」《基本法》網上問答比賽及「法你通識」網上挑戰賽。全港共三百多間學校參與,結果本校在兩項比賽的總成績均躋身首十名。其中5A班許盛俊同學奪得《基本法》網上問答比賽全港第九名,獲贈Apple iPad Air 乙部;另外4D班江海文、羅日亨、5A班陳禹伸、馮家昇、劉鎮彰、潘詠茹、曾泳月、翁曉輝及5E班黃沛燐同學在《基本法》網上問答比賽及「法你通識」網上挑戰賽中,則奪得「至Smart先鋒」、「人氣王」等不同獎項,共獲取總值一萬元的書券及禮品,表現優秀。

5A 許盛俊

我很榮幸能夠在由香港律師會及「青Teen 講場」所舉辦的《基本法》網上問答比賽中取得全港第九名。由於我一直對法律頗有興趣,所以當通識科余老師邀請我們參加這項比賽時,我就立即報名參加。我能夠透過這個比賽對《基本法》及其他香港的法例有更深入的認識,而且有機會獲得豐富的獎品,實在是一舉兩得。然而這個比賽並沒有想像 中那麽簡單,參賽者需要在比賽開始前聆聽一個有關《基本法》的講座,細心記住其中的細節,加上比賽前自己在網上搜查資料,才能正確地回答問題。此外,參賽者要以最快的時間選擇正確的答案,才能夠獲得更高的分數。從這個比賽中,我學會一些平常在課堂中不會有機會接觸到的法律知識,例如《基本法》的制訂過程、哪個機構有修改憲法的權利等,都讓我大開眼界。我也能夠從比賽中訓練自己快速思考以及快速作答的能力。最後,我希望同學未來亦能參加更多不同的校外比賽,擴闊眼界,為校爭光。

2020至2021年度「大埔區公民教育運動委員會——徵文比賽」

2020至2021年度「大埔區公民教育運動委員會——徵文比賽」,以「尊重包容無疆界」為主題,目的在於推廣公民教育,提高學生對社區事務的關心,及對公民責任及權利的認識。本校4A陳樂心同學與5E郭嵐同學,在作品入圍後,通過評審,最終在芸芸作品中脫穎而出,陳樂心同學勇奪中學組冠軍,郭嵐同學榮獲中學組亞軍。

陳樂心同學提出尊重和包容無分疆界,非只是地理上的界限,而是跨越性別、種族、年齡和國籍,在不同國家的文化、政治和價值觀中求同存異。作者反思到真正的尊重和包容乃發自內心,而不是為了讚賞或避免受到批評,要設身處地為他人設想,並以實際的行動和相應的態度體現出來,由衷接納對方與自己的差異。人要發自內心地尊重和包容他人,才能幸福快樂。

大埔區傑出服務公民獎 2020-21

Hong Kong Secondary School Debating Competition (HKSSDC) Term One 2020-21 Championship

by 5A Adrian Ho

In the First School Term, we were honoured to win the Hong Kong Secondary School Debate Competition (HKSSDC) 2020-21 Term 1 New Territories Senior Division I Champion. I would like to express my gratitude towards the effort made by my teammates Apple Chow and Strawberry Cheung from 5A, our teacher advisor Ms. Ng and our debating coach Ms. Yiu. We had three rounds of debates against Law Ting Pong Secondary School, Kau Yan College and Yuen Long Public Secondary School. It was a heart-beating pleasure to take part in such a large-scale debating competition in which over two hundred local schools took part.

The key to winning three rounds consecutively is certainly learning from experiences and the essence of collaboration. My incredible teammates are the most inspiring and supportive of all, who offered meaningful advice and ideas during preparation and debates. I might sometimes become unfocused in the preparation meetings but my teammates were always tolerant and led me back to the logic. Our team definitely developed a strong team spirit with which we always had each other's back and excelled in our respective roles in the debates.

Not only does the Debate Team give us an opportunity of grasping the championship, but it also enhances our English proficiency. We are also well-trained with critical thinking power by exchanging views on motions. Thank you Ms. Ng, Ms. Yiu and my teammates for carrying me in every single round in the competition.

Good People Good Deeds Tung Wah Group of Hospitals English Writing Competition 2019

Despite class suspension during the pandemic, our students managed to continue to excel in their academic pursuits.

On 19 September 2020, 5A Ho Chun Hei Adrian won a Merit Award in the Good People Good Deeds Tung Wah Group of Hospitals English Writing Competition 2019. In his story titled ‘Fighting Fire’, Adrian paid tribute to heroes embodying courage at times of emergency, in particular, firefighters who are willing to sacrifice their lives for others' safety in blazes. He demonstrated his creativity and effective use of figurative language in such a meaningful story.

Congratulations to Adrian!

Amazing Awards     by 5A Ho Chun Hei

It is my pleasure to have this opportunity granted by Miss Yuen to participate in this rewarding competition. English writing has always been one of my favourite pastimes as I enjoy the process of creating a decent piece of writing from scratch. Preparing for the competition, I have learnt to be resilient and persistent as it was a rocky road. I am beyond fortunate to be guided by a patient and understanding English teacher, who more importantly, proofread my messy and disordered drafts carefully whereas some other teachers may leave their students alone as they want less workload. That is certainly not the case in WSC! She also motivated me when I tried to quit after having written countless drafts. She kept on encouraging me and assisted me to overcome obstacles ahead as she sees the potential in me.

The most nerve-wrecking process was the interview session for shortlisted candidates. I felt as if I would never be fully prepared since it tested not only my understanding of my story, but also my spontaneous use of English. Luckily, English teachers in WSC always encourage students to speak in English with them in lessons and even outside classrooms.

Even though this award may not sound big, it is certainly significant to me as the old saying goes, ‘How much effort you give is how much reward in return.’ I would like to thank my teachers for providing such an immensely interactive English writing and learning environment. As Apple's former CEO Steve Jobs once said, ‘Stay hungry, stay foolish.’ I won't be satisfied with the award I earned this time; instead, I will continue to strive for greater achievements.

陳卓琳同學榮膺2020多元卓越獎學金得主(運動)

應屆畢業生陳卓琳同學自九歲入選香港體操代表隊,歷年參加不少本地及國際體操賽事。雖然要應付中學文憑試,依然在訓練和學業之間爭取平衡,於二零一八年代表香港出戰在多哈舉行的國際體操總會藝術體操世界盃;二零一九年,更遠赴巴爾幹半島,參加國際體操總會藝術體操挑戰盃斯洛文尼亞及克羅地亞分站賽事。卓琳憑著對體操運動的熱忱和輝煌的成績,獲本校推薦競逐民政事務局的多元卓越獎學金,經過面試,卓琳榮獲是項獎學金,全額相當於四年大學學費,共十六萬八千四百元;並獲香港理工大學醫療科技及資訊學系取錄,修讀其心儀的放射學榮譽理學士學位。

中國中學生作文大賽

「中國中學生作文大賽」是全國性的寫作比賽,亦是學界認受性最高、參與人數最多的一項大型文學活動。2019至2020年度大會以「想像力,我們的宇宙無邊無際」為主題,香港賽區共有179間中學參加。本校陳洛怡同學,在芸芸作品中脱穎而出,憑《時空旅行——繁星的墜落》勇奪初中組金獎。

《時空旅行——繁星的墜落》以諷刺、誇張、幽默的手法,主角藉著穿梭到二零六零年的時空旅行,目睹全球暖化使海平面上升,陸地被淹沒,到處都是海底都市。隨著科技進步,餐廳的店員都成了機械人,到處都是冷冰冰的。而那唯一尚且溫暖跳動的心,軀體卻因長期無須活動而導致肌肉萎縮,活像個頭小身胖的嬰兒。作者目睹這一切,不禁反思科技在進步,抑或人類文明在倒退?

評判鮑國鴻先生指出:「文章以2060年為背景,人類住的是海底,吃的是三維立體打印食物,使喚的是機械人,一切予人冷冰冰的感覺,而人類身在其中,身體機能卻逐漸消退。科技解決困境,人類卻為此付出代價。文章想像力豐富,內容引人深思。」

「第八屆校際香港歷史文化專題研習比賽」初級組文字報告冠軍

戰後香港經濟急促轉型,香港由一個轉口港一躍成為「世界工廠」,社會對公共交通有殷切需求,但兩間專利巴士公司對問題的應對緩慢,於是非法載客取酬的「白牌車」乘時冒起,衍生嚴重的交通問題。六七暴動期間,由於公共交通工具嚴重缺乏,於是「白牌車」填補了這個真空。一九六九年,交通諮詢委員會建議將小巴車型的「白牌車」合法化,「公共小巴」應運而生。本校五位初中級同學,參加由香港歷史博物館及香港中華文化促進中心合辦的「第八屆校際香港歷史文化專題研習比賽」,完成《今年,我們坐上了一部紅Van:香港公共小巴合法化的歷史進程1960-1973》的文字報告,榮獲初級組文字報告冠軍。茲列得獎生名單如下:

「第八屆校際香港歷史文化專題研習比賽」初級組多媒體製作冠軍

食糖一直以來都是人類生活的必需品。十九世紀末開始,不少英國企業發展出成熟的製糖技術,英資洋行亦將食糖產業帶到遠東市場,香港便是食糖產業的其中一個落腳點。太古洋行於中國發展長江航運市場,糖廠正好為太古帶來商業的協同效應。太古決定購入鰂魚涌地皮,發展成為一座以現代化管理的先進煉糖廠。

雖然與香港的歷史一樣,太古糖廠面對很多政治動盪,甚至戰爭洗禮,但都一一克服,令太古方糖成為世界知名的品牌。另外,太古糖廠的工業市鎮發展模式,亦改變了鰂魚涌整個地區的公共發展,由水務、工人宿舍以至教育,當中都看到太古糖廠的重要地位。本校五位初中同學以太古糖廠為題製作短片,參加了香港歷史博物館及香港中華文化促進中心合辦的「第八屆校際香港歷史文化專題研習比賽」,榮獲初級組多媒體製作冠軍。組員名單如下:

全港中學生物理奧林匹克比賽

二零一九年五月五日,本校共有15名同學參加了由香港資優教育學院舉辦的全港中學生物理奧林匹克比賽。在此恭賀5E班 李梧楨同學獲得三等獎,5E班 朱溢晞同學獲得榮譽獎,我們學校更獲得了學校優異表現獎。以下是他們的得獎感言:

得獎感言   5E班(12)李梧楨

在比賽開始之前,我的物理老師──任老師,幫助我們做了許多相關訓練。當我第一次看到考試範圍時,儘管有些單元我們曾經學過,但我依舊認為這些知識點十分難。可是任老師清晰地講解有關的物理原理,並讓我們做了許多練習題,使我增加了不少自信心。

比賽結束后,我原以為得獎機會渺茫,因為考卷上的題目對我而言十分困難。出乎意料的是,我榮獲了三等獎。我十分感激任老師給予我許多支持和幫助。從這次奧林匹克比賽中,我學到了新的物理知識,同時亦開闊了眼界。

得獎感言   5E班(3) 朱溢晞

早前物理科老師提名我參加了全港中學生物理奧林匹克比賽,我非常榮幸能在比賽中獲得榮譽獎。比賽的題目很困難和複雜,直至公佈結果前我都沒有預計過自己能得獎,是次結果確實令我喜出望外。

我十分感激我的同學和物理科任老師。任老師花了很多時間與我們操練試題,以及教授我們新的物理知識。沒有任老師的幫助,我們很難理解那些超出中學物理科課程的題目。

參加比賽後我才發現自己的物理知識只有冰山一角,這次比賽進一步引起了我對物理的興趣。將來我會更努力研習物理,增加自己的科學知識。

香港理工大學數學及科學比賽(SSMSC) 2019

				5A (2018-2019)	楊嘉駿		獎牌
				5A (2018-2019)	葉芷青		高級優異
				5D (2018-2019) 	譚智謙		高級優異

得獎感言   5E(2018-2019) 余帕熹

本人十分榮幸能夠代表王肇枝中學參加由香港理工大學舉辦的「香港理工大學數學及科學比賽(SSMSC) 2018」,並在化學科及生物科獲得獎牌,於物理科獲得高級優異的成績。

在此,我十分感激物理科任老師、化學科朱博士及生物科謝老師,他們願意在課餘時間抽空協助我們進行訓練,使我們對應考的主題有更深入的了解,得以在比賽中有優異的表現。

在訓練初期,我既擔心又興奮,因為比賽涉及的主題有不少並不在文憑試的範圍之中,但這卻給我一個大好機會去實踐兩年高中生活所研習得的知識。因此,從遞交報名表一刻,我便充滿了決心。在復活節假時,我花了不少時間鑽研三個學科的歷屆試題。可幸的是,當天比賽的題目不難應付,因此我有幸突圍而出,成為化學科及生物科成績首兩個巴仙的學生,獲得兩面獎牌。

最後,再次感謝學校給予我機會參加比賽及各老師的協助,令我獲益良多,實踐「一分耕耘,一分收穫」的道理。

得獎感言   5A(2018-2019) 楊嘉駿

本人十分榮幸能夠代表王肇枝中學參加由香港理工大學舉辦的「香港理工大學數學及科學比賽(SSMSC) 2019」,並在生物科和化學科獲得獎牌。

首先,我想感謝生物科許老師和化學科朱博士於比賽前協助我們進行訓練,讓我們對比賽制度、考核內容和問題模式更為熟悉,得以在比賽中獲取佳績。

在比賽訓練中,許老師和朱博士首先向我們派發比賽筆記,其中包含了各課程的重點。然後在解答我們的疑問和釐清概念後,再讓我們操練歷年比賽的試題。拆解深奧的題目有助提升我的分析能力,讓我更有效和全面裝備自己應付比賽。

雖然比賽的考核內容和歷屆一樣,但是次比賽的題目風格截然不同,面對刁鑽的題目時,我唯有小心拆解,盡自己最大努力完成考卷。結果,我有幸在生物科和化學科獲得獎牌。最後我衷心感謝在比賽訓練中曾指教我的老師和同學,你們的幫助是我能獲取佳績的最大原因。

2018-19 香港日本語教育研究會獎學金及小組研究項目獎 (高中日語課程學生)

本校學生於2019年8月3日在香港日本語教育研究會事務局的面試及報告中脫穎而出,成功獲選獎學金及小組研究項目獎,並獲邀於9月21日頒獎禮再次報告小組研究。本校共派出5位中六級同學參加小組研究項目,組員包括陳灝、縱家禧、王文琦、陳琪柔及陳雪霖,由劉珮淇老師指導。另外陳灝榮獲獎學金。

同學的小組研究以「日本都市傳說」為題,通過研究日本都市傳說廣泛流傳的原因,以及香港都市傳說與日本都市傳說的異同,探討日本都市傳說背後的社會及文化意涵,並思考香港應如何讓這些價值活化我們的城市。

全港青年中文故事創作比賽(2018-19年度)

由民政事務總署、全港青年學藝比賽大會、香港西區扶輪社合辦之全港青年中文故事創作比賽(2018-19年度),旨在鼓勵有志寫作的青年創作故事,從而提高其故事創作能力。本校上年度文學班4E趙廷珏同學,在作品入圍後,通過評判面試,最終在芸芸作品中脱穎而出,憑《蟲化》勇奪冠軍。

《蟲化》是將科幻與現實共冶一爐的作品,以病毒象徵歪風。小說旨在營造校園中各同學為爭奪分數、名次的虛榮,在公開試互相競爭,仿似大自然中弱肉强食,物競天擇,泯滅人性的善良,藉此嘲諷「求學求分數」、「補習文化」等歪風。為了配合弱肉强食、物競天擇、泯滅人性等重點,故以昆蟲之間的無情相待、鬥爭為喻,將學生比擬為昆蟲,故題為《蟲化》,實為惹人深思之小說。

得獎感想   5E 趙廷珏

本人有幸得到中國文學科老師——林深老師推薦,得以與全港精英一較高下。由於比賽題材不限,須自擬題目,起初我對於文章的主題三心兩意,各種思絮破碎凌亂,卻沒一根線把它們串連在一起,令我陷入思絮的迷宫中,而作品的進度亦停滯在起跑線上多時。

偶然憶起瑞士著名心理學家榮格的著作《人類心靈的神話》,當中提出了傾聽自己內心的方法——積極幻想(在平靜的心情下進行幻想,分析幻想中所見所聞),我便採納此法,把自己困在房間內整整三小時,閉上眼睛探究內心。沒想到,閉上眼睛卻是看見一場腥風血雨的爭鬥,學生們為爭奪分數而互相猜疑和廝殺,損人利己,各種力爭上游的方法無所不用其極。此題材雖能徹頭徹尾地鞭撻「求學求分數」、「補習文化」等歪風,卻過於貼近現實,可能會引起同學反感,但所謂「大凡物不得其平則鳴」、「人之於言也亦然,有不得已者而後言」,對於這股控制着學生的歪風,實要不平則鳴,故小說旨在營造校園中各同學為爭奪分數、名次的虛榮、在公開試互相競爭,仿似大自然中弱肉强食,物競天擇,泯滅人性的善良,藉此嘲諷「求學求分數」、「補習文化」等歪風。為了配合弱肉强食、物競天擇、泯滅人性等重點,故以昆蟲之間的無情相待、鬥爭為喻,將學生比擬為昆蟲,故題為《蟲化》。

《蟲化》是將科幻與現實共冶一爐的作品。作品以「我」和兩名同學為主角,以病毒象徵歪風,而病毒名稱亦暗藏諷刺之效。作品內容主要講述三名主角在一年中,受歪風所帶來的改變和因歪風而掀起的風波,在多次風波中,三名主角的衝突能明顯看見染病者和非染病者的差別,突顯病毒之禍害。而有數個鏡頭亦將多個學生攝入其中,可歎的是幾乎所有同學已感染病毒,突出病毒傳播之廣和迅速,但在這「狂泉」之下,「我」仿似「眾人皆醉我獨醒」,但現實中,或持相反意見的讀者閲讀時,又會否是「眾人皆醒我獨醉」呢?而我仍未有答案。值得留意的是三名主角有不同的結局,有堅守原則,涅而不緇、有在這病毒下被淘汰、有憑藉病毒扶摇直上,卻失去人性,各象徵不同意義。而作品結尾以多個連續反問句譴責製造、傳播、助長病毒的人,以示對他們憤慨和鄙夷,再以「五之後的兩朵小花」象徵文憑試,點出文憑試是主因,但始作俑者、利用其之人則要讀者自行思索。

對於是次作品能在芸芸作品中脱穎而出,得到冠軍,本人感到萬分榮幸。雖然作品在入圍後需要進行面試,而本人亦不善辭令,本以為得獎無望,有幸各評判親切友善,整個面試過程輕鬆,與閒談無異,讓我可以將創作過程和意念娓娓道來,最終得此殊榮。也許所謂的文學創作並不困難,只是難於「我手寫我心」和勇於冒「眾人皆醒我獨醉」的危險罷了。

二零一九國際初中科學奧林匹克 ─ 香港選拔比賽

本校同學參與了由香港數理教育學會丶教育局資優教育組和香港資優教育學苑合辦的二零一九國際初中科學奧林匹克 ─ 香港選拔比賽。比賽在二零一八年九月二十九日,於長沙灣天主教英文中學舉行。本校3A班卓恩承同學獲得了二等獎;而3E班馮家昇和劉敏淇同學獲得了三等獎。以下是他們對是次比賽的反思。

卓恩承同學的反思 3A(5)

今年暑假,我和五位同學在學校預先學習中三級的科學知識,準備參加二零一九國際初中科學奧林匹克─香港選拔賽。

感謝任義建老師、楊鳳媚老師及謝仲衡老師悉心的教導。起初,我對艱深而遼闊的科學領域可說是一無所知。但是經過老師悉心教導後,我逐漸認識了科學的奧秘,了解當中的知識,如力學、熱傳導等,彷似在迷霧中置身其中找到一絲曙光般,因此提高了我對科學的興趣。

比賽過程雖然令我十分緊張,這次比賽竟然有五百七十四人,接近一百所學校參加!我努力運用老師教導的知識和技巧,最後很榮幸取得二等獎的成績。

最後衷心感謝幫助和支持我的老師和家人,得到他們的鼓勵,使我勇於徜徉於科學的大海中,並以此作為我努力奮發向上的目標,我才能取得如此令人鼓舞的成績。

馮家昇同學的反思 3E(7)

在二零一八年九月二十九日,我校參加了由香港資優學苑舉辦的二零一九國際初中科學奧林匹克─香港選拔比賽,是次比賽令我獲益良多,不僅學習到科學知識,更能體會到書本以外的知識。

首先,我學習到要有堅持不懈的精神。在操練試卷的過程中往往會遇到困難,如不明白題目中大量的詞匯。因此,我明白到要克服困難便必需要持之以恆,主動翻閱有關的課外書。操練後,我每次都會上網探究不明白的地方,並詢問老師。最後在老師的悉心教導下得到三等獎的成績。

其次,我衷心感謝老師對我們的付出,若果沒有老師悉心指導,我們便不能正確地解題及作出全面的分析,並取得優異的成績。

劉敏淇同學的反思 3E(15)

在二零一八年九月二十九日,我參加了由資優教育學苑舉辦的二零一九國際初中科學奧林匹克─香港選拔賽,使我獲益良多,認識到關於中三書本上的知識及部份科學原理。

在訓練的過程中,我們操練了歷屆試題,當中大部份的內容,我都未曾接觸過。加上,任老師的提問我也未能即時回答,因此我便覺得自己沒有可能取得好成績。但是,在老師們的悉心教導下,詳細地講解試題內容及課本上的知識,我便慢慢掌握了各種解題方法,最後得到三等獎。因此我衷心感謝任老師、楊老師和謝老師於比賽前抽空給我們進行訓練。

這次比賽不但提升了我對科學的興趣,也使我汲取相關比賽的經驗,相信對我日後的選科有幫助。

第七屆校際香港歷史文化專題研習比賽(高級組文字報告)

六、七十年代,香港淡水魚養殖業盛極一時。談到香港的養魚業,不能不提元朗烏頭。元朗有著得天獨厚的地勢,土壤兼具鹹性和黏性,以及有大量蔬菜殘渣沉積,令魚塘內有充足的養料,養殖出鮮活肥美的烏頭。再者,元朗沿海地區處於鹹淡水的交界,亦有利漁民捕捉有洄游性的烏頭,以及將本身為鹹水魚的烏頭馴養為淡水習性的家魚。但從八十年代開始,香港注重經濟金融、第三產業發展,加上新界土地發展,養魚業又缺乏新血加入,時至今日,本地養魚業更已成為夕陽行業。本校五位高中級同學,參加由香港歷史博物館及香港中華文化促進中心合辦的「第七屆校際香港歷史文化專題研習比賽」,完成《尋烏記︰由元朗烏頭看香港淡水魚養殖業的發展》的文字報告,榮獲高級組文字報告冠軍。茲列得獎生名單如下:

第七屆校際香港歷史文化專題研習比賽(初級組多媒體製作)

薄扶林村是香港島的一條雜姓村落,歷史可以追溯到十七世紀清朝康熙年間。當時內陸沿海居民遷徙至此,算是香港島最早的原居民。 牛奶公司對薄扶林村的影響非常深遠,牛奶公司由文遜醫生與幾位商人於1886年創辦,創辦目的是向香港的洋人提供新鮮牛奶飲用。牛奶公司選擇於薄扶林建立牧場,養殖乳牛,成為該區的重要經濟產業。除此之外,薄扶林亦是天主教及巴黎外方傳教會的重要根據地,附近建有德格拉斯堡、納匝肋印書館、太古樓及伯大尼療養院,這些充滿天主教色彩的建築物。 時至今日,隨著牛奶公司牧場關閉及巴黎外方傳教會撤離,薄扶林村的經濟及人口結構都有很大的轉變。話雖如此,薄扶林村獨有的中秋舞火龍及李靈仙姐信仰文化仍然得以承傳,製作火龍的工藝更已有過百年的歷史。雖然薄扶林村一直受西方文化影響,但該村的傳統習俗仍保存濃厚的中國傳統特色。本校五位初中級同學以薄扶林村為題,製作了一段十五分鐘,名為《活著的歷史:探究薄扶林村》的短片,探究這條歷史村落的轉變,參加了「第七屆校際香港歷史文化專題研習比賽」,榮獲初級組多媒體製作亞軍。組員名單如下:

第七屆校際香港歷史文化專題研習比賽(初級組文字報告)

想品嚐美味的生蠔,不少香港人甚至遊客都會慕名到流浮山大飽口福。二百多年前,流浮山只是一個不足二十人定居的不毛之地,在廈村鄧族村民的努力下,流浮山成為一個以生蠔聞名的小漁村。戰後,隨著沙井蠔民遷入,為流浮山灌注新動力;而一條連接流浮山和元朗的公路,更令流浮山成為海鮮酒家林木的旅遊點。但隨著新中國成立,位於中港邊界最前線的流浮山,蠔民飽嚐中港蠔田業權之爭的苦頭;六、七十年代深灣海水污染、生蠔大批死亡等事件亦打擊流浮山養蠔業;加上內地蠔大批湧入,蠔都又黯然無光。直至近年,在流浮山養蠔業技術革新下,加上深圳蠔場停產,流浮山養蠔業又回復昔日光輝。五位初中級同學翻閱大量政府檔案,加上訪問,完成考察報告,參加「第七屆校際香港歷史文化專題研習比賽」,榮獲初級組文字報告亞軍。得獎生名單如下:

感想

5E(2017-2018)林子翱

本人十分榮幸能夠代表王肇枝中學參加由香港理工大學舉辦的「香港理工大學數學及科學比賽(SSMSC) 2018」並在物理科獲得獎牌。

在此,我想感謝物理科任老師於比賽前協助我們進行訓練,讓我們對比賽的制度和考核內容更為熟悉,得以在比賽中有優異的表現。

訓練初期,面對著歷屆試題的我有些擔心,因為有些題目要花上一段時間才能拆解。到了比賽那天,題目發下來時發覺雖然部分問題尚能應付自如,但亦有部分問題頗為刁鑽。我抱著緊張的心情,小心翼翼的分析問題,提防題目中藏有陷阱。結果,我十分幸運能夠成為其中一位得到獎牌的參賽者。最後多謝學校給予我機會參加比賽,令我獲益良多。

5E(2017-2018) 黃瑤婷

我很榮幸可以代表學校參加香港理工大學高中數理比賽,並在物理、化學比賽中獲得高級優異的成績。

首先,我非常感謝物理科任老師和化學科朱博士在百忙之中抽空訓練我們出賽, 亦感謝他們的耐心教導,令我們在比賽中獲得佳績。 在物理的比賽訓練中,任老師不但讓我們操練歷年比賽的試題,更加深部分比賽試題的難度,讓我們有機會挑戰自己的能力以及有效地裝備自己應付比賽。另一方面,在化學的比賽訓練中,朱博士則集中教導我們常規課程尚未學到,但卻包括在比賽範圍的幾課課文。

比賽前,我並沒有信心能獲得佳績, 因為雖然大部分的比賽題目都源自香港公開考試的範圍,但比賽題目的難度卻遠遠高於公開考試。我心裡知道自己並非資質聰敏的學生,幸好透過自己孜孜不倦的學習和老師用心的教導,最終我亦有幸能在物理、化學比賽中獲得高級優異的成績。

香港物理奧林匹克比賽2018

早前,本校派出同學參加由香港資優教育學苑主辦,一年一度的「2018香港物理奧林匹克」比賽,同學表現出色。

4E班(2017-2018)盧一鋒同學榮獲榮譽獎,以下是盧同學於是次比賽中的經驗分享:

在2018年5月13日,我參加了由香港資優教育學苑舉辦的香港物理奧林匹克競賽,並獲得了榮譽獎。

在任老師的介紹之前,我從未聽過任何關於這物理比賽的資料。一聽到有這類型的比賽,我便立即報名參加,因爲我認爲這種比賽可以擴寬視野挑戰自我,並學習更高層次的物理知識。

可是,這比賽並不簡單。我最初看到歷届試題便認定自己不能獲獎,因爲那些問題完全超越了我的程度。剛好,任老師給了我們大量的訓練,並以清晰的解說和實用的解題技巧協助我們解決各種難題,令我從中學習更多知識,更幫助了我取得榮譽獎。

我認爲香港物理奧林匹克競賽是一個對喜愛物理的同學極有意義的比賽,不單擴寬了同學的視野,更能透過不斷解難而鞏固所學,令同學對物理有更深的認識。

The Mathematics Project Competition for Secondary Schools (2017/18)

Our school actively promote project-based learning. Other than the formal curriculum, we believe that students can learn more and deeper through exploration of real-world challenges and problems. This year, three teams of students were sent to participate in the Mathematics Project Competition.

3A Yeung Hui Yau Sophia
(Member of the team securing the First Runner-up)

It is my honour to take part in the Mathematics Project Competition. It was challenging to prepare for this project, as this competition covers many difficult mathematics concepts. We have spent much time and effort to learn those concepts. Fortunately, our supervising teacher Mr. Kwong helped us a lot in our preparation. We would like to thank Mr. Kwong for helping us. Our team would not get such a good result without his help.

In a couple of months, my teammates and I spent plenty of time to finish our project, which is called "Throw Away The Compass!". All of us learned a lot of techniques which included presentation and information technology skills. We applied these skills in the project, Besides, we learned more about nine-point circle and geometric constructions. We can prove that some toolsets are equivalent to the compass-and- straightedge toolset in a sense that all figures constructible with one toolset are also constructible with the other.

Joining the competition made me more interested in studying Mathematics. I am going to learn more through reading books and surfing the internet. Besides getting a prize in the competition, the most important thing is that we have got a remarkable experience and made a lot of friends.

2A 黃沛燐
(表現優異獎隊伍组員)

參加這次數學專題報告比賽,讓我學習到很多東西。在此之前,我認為三角尺只是一個量度角度的工具,不知道有其它用途;直到做這次數學專題報告,我才發現三角尺有一定的特性,它們更可組成多種重疊面積。我領悟其實生活中有很多微不足道的事情,看似簡單平凡,卻有很多有趣味,從中有無窮樂趣,我們可以運用學習的知識,在生活中多作練習,舉一反三,便可以把自己的知識昇華至另一個層次,再遇到問題時也會迎刃而解。在參加這以數學專題報告途中,我們運用了不少電腦程式去幫助自己,我明白靈活運用互聯網的重要性。

The title of the project is “Refreshing Water With Tea”. The project aims at investigating the possibility of removing trace amounts of heavy metal ions in industrial waste water by used tea leaves. We used a primitive precipitate method and an innovative method (based on the concept of differentiation) to find the absorption capacities and the absorption abilities, respectively, of four types of used tea leaves (Iron Goddess, Red Tea, Jasmine and Pu-erh) for seven types of heavy metal ions [Ni2+(aq), Pb2+(aq), Cu2+(aq), Mn2+(aq), Hg2+(aq), Zn2+(aq) and Fe3+(aq)].

The school team has got an honours award.

Hong Kong Secondary Schools Debating Competition 2017-18 NTE Senior Division I Champion

by 4A Lee Cheuk Wing Jenny

On behalf of the English Debate Team, we would share the wonderful news with the school that we got the Champion of the territory-wide Hong Kong Secondary Schools Debating Competition after winning all the rounds in the second semester. Throughout the school year, we beat various reputable schools including Lam Kau Mow Secondary School, Pentecostal Lam Hon Kwong School, HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity and Tang Hin Memorial Secondary School.

Along with Mak Yan Hei Ama in 3E and Yeung Ho Terry in 3A, we won the Grand Final Round against Tang Hin Memorial School on 25th of May. Terry Yeung was awarded the best speaker of this debate. The motion is that 'this house believes that short-term volunteering in developing countries by youth from developed regions is beneficial' and we were on the affirmative side.

Not only did we learn about the youth volunteerism, an educational experience practice with sustainability for boosting the globalisation and solidarity among the world, we also had the chance to learn more about the poor situations of the developing countries which had taught all of us to make our world better. It was a worthwhile experience that emboldened and enriched us.

The glory is certainly the collaborative effort of the whole team. The debaters of the previous rounds include 5A Lee Pui Hang Jeff, 5C Leung Man Hin Ryan and 5E Cheung Hoi Ching Kelly.

Together with our champion in the previous CityU Debating Challenge against Stewards Pooi Kei College, this year is definitely fruitful and meaningful for the Debate Team. In the process, all debaters boosted their proficiency and horned their public speaking skills with the wide exposure to a variety of local and international issues.

Our Victory in Hong Kong Secondary School Debating Competition 2017-18 Term Two Round Two

By Lee Pui Hang Jeff 5A

On behalf of the English Debate Team, we are honored to share our victory in the HKSSDC Term Two Round Two. Along with Cheung Hoi Ching Kelly 5E and Leung Man Hin Ryan 5C, we won the debate against HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity on 26th of April. The motion is that 'This house believes that the government should intervene to prevent the gentrification of the poor communities'. We are on the affirmative side. The debate motion is a geographical issue about urban development. Not only have we learnt about gentrification, a geographical concept about how urban renewal may unwittingly kill poor communities, the local businesses and the underprivileged, we have also had the chance to polish our impromptu response and expressive skills through debating. Overall it was a worthwhile experience that emboldened and enriched us. We are pleased to announce that Kelly Cheung 5E was awarded the Best Speaker. We will also be offered a place in the Grand Final Round on 25th May 2018 against HKTA Tang Hin Memorial Secondary School.

2018國際初中科學奧林匹克 – 香港選拔比賽

本校同學參與了由香港數理教育學會丶教育局資優教育組和香港資優教育學苑合辦的2018國際初中科學奧林匹克 – 香港選拔比賽。比賽在九月三十日,於長沙灣天主教英文中學舉行。本校3E班的嚴富莊同學獲得了二等獎;而3E班的梁正榆同學、3A班的鍾煒棋和楊煦柔同學獲得了三等獎。以下是他們對是次比賽的反思。

梁正榆同學的反思 3E(12)

今年暑假,我很榮幸能夠和五位同學一同參加2017國際初中科奧林匹克香港選拔賽。在比賽前一個月,謝仲衡老師、楊鳳媚老師和任義建老師給我們準備了進階的科學課程,他們不但熱心教導,更有豐富的科學知識,悉心養育我們對科學的興趣,以及提高我們解難的能力。

最初,我對於那些繁複的科學知識感到相當迷惘和困惑,幸得有三位老師的鼓勵,使我重拾自信。我從中學習到的,不僅是科學知識,更領略到老師對教學的熱忱,以及對學生關懷和尊重。

在比賽的過程中,我小心翼翼地完成所有題目。儘管時間不充裕,問題亦相當深奧,但我亦竭盡所能,運用老師所傳授的知識一一作答。

最後我獲得三等榮譽。這證明了老師們的努力沒有白費。經過此次的科學培訓,我學習到五花百門、數之不儘的科學知識,除擴闊了眼界視野之外,亦提高了我對科學的興趣和好奇心。科學知識的豐富好比繁星,使我立志我日後定要好好追求這門學問。經此訓練,讓我體驗到原來追求知識的過程確實會令人流連忘返呢。

這次比賽確實是一次寶貴的經驗,使我獲益良多。最後,謹此我衷心感謝謝仲衡老師、楊鳳媚老師和任義建老師利用了很多課餘時間給我們進行訓練,令我們增長知識之餘,也獲得寶貴的參賽經驗,受用無窮。

鍾煒棋同學的反思 3A(8)

我很榮幸可以參加2018國際初中科學奧林匹克 – 香港選拔賽。是次比賽的題目是圍繞中一及中二級綜合科學的內容和部份中三物理、化學、生物的知識。

首先,我在此感謝任老師、楊老師和謝老師在過去的暑假中和課後悉心教導我和其他參賽者,例如:摩擦力、細胞、酸等等的課題。我們在學習新知識的同時也擴闊我們對科學的視野。

當初我對整個比賽一概不知,但是經過三位老師忙裡抽空,不斷為我們做不同的試卷和訓練,最後我很幸運可以得到三等獎! 從比賽中,我也可以從中學習新的知識,如核糖核酸、氧化還原化學反應等等。

雖然在比賽之前,我視這個比賽為一大困難和障礙,因為我在訓練中聽到很多前所未見的概念、詞語、解釋或是定律,而且需要了解透徹,這對我來說是一大挑戰,幸好最終我能克服。

我覺得這次比賽對我來說,是非常獨特和難忘的經歷,因為我從中學會更多有關科學的知識,實在是難得的經驗。

楊煦柔同學的反思 3A(26)

能夠參加國際初中科學奧林匹克比賽絕對是我的榮幸。這個比賽測試範圍涵括了中一至三的物理,化學,以及生物課程。我們需要於短短兩個月的時間了解中三的科學課程以及複習中一至中二的課程,實在是充滿挑戰性。感謝任老師、謝老師和楊老師抽出他們寶貴的時間來幫助我們預備比賽,令我們對比賽的考試範圍有更深入的了解。

暑假期間,我不斷複習中一至中二的課程,亦對自己不了解的課題作出提問。另外,我完成了歷屆的試題來測試自己的能力,再對自己表現較弱的課題加以複習。我完成了不同試題後獲得了很大的進步,很有成功感。我發現上述的複習方法能應用到不同的科目考試上。參與這個比賽實在獲益良多。除此以外,參與這個比賽有助我深入了解物理、化學,以及生物的不同課題。我更對這三個科目產生了濃厚的興趣。我會多閱讀關於以上科目的課外書,從而學習更多。

我有幸在國際初中科學奧林匹克取得三等獎,更重要的是我獲得了豐富的經驗和認識了一班好朋友。在此感謝所有給予我幫助和支持的老師和同學。

嚴富莊同學的反思 3E(29)

在暑假,我參加了國際奧林匹克科學比賽——香港選拔,榮獲二等獎,令我十分欣喜。獲得二等獎是十分光榮的事,我覺得這個獎不我個人的,反而是負責指導的任義建老師,楊鳳媚老師及謝仲衡老師,他們給予我們6名參賽者很多的訓練,我們十分感謝。

經這次的比賽,不但令我擴闊視野,又使我對物理產生了濃厚的興趣。即使到現在我還記得F=ma(牛頓第二定律)。而且,還更增加了未來學習物理的自信呢!

而作為二等獎得獎者,我有幸將參加附屬比賽的訓練課程。在每個星期六,到香港中文大學聽課。我將會學到未來高中的科學知識。這是一個非常難得的經驗呢!

廣州比賽交流之旅

2017年4月15日至16日,我校2位老師、10名中五同學前往廣州出席由廣州市教育廳及香港教育局主辦的「慶祝香港回歸20周年----穗港姊妹學校美文誦讀比賽」,並探訪我校的姊妹學校廣州南武中學。

此行10名中五同學均為中文朗誦隊成員,赴穗之後馬上加入南武中學的朗誦隊合作訓練及綵排,第二日下午正式比賽。比賽中共八隊角逐,我隊以「中國少年」一文為誦材,最後奪得銀獎。此外,又曾探訪南武中學,參與其開放日,兩校學生在兩天中把握時間互相認識,大家均十分享受難得的交誼時刻。

5A 鄭佳麗

此行最大的收穫便是珍貴的友誼。因為這次是與姊妹學校廣州市南武中學學生組成三十人的隊伍參賽,雖然只有短短兩天的練習時間,但我與廣州的同學一見如故,之後更成了相見恨晚的朋友,現時還常保持著聯絡。

其次,在比賽方面,我們獲得銀獎,值得祝賀。因為我們與廣州同學在短短的時間裏,良好地磨合,並且排練出《中國少年》這作品,比賽時不但震撼了觀眾,更是表現出我們姊妹學校之間的團結及燃點起我作為中國少年的衝勁。所以這次比賽實為與廣州同學難得的交流體驗,途中所獲不可勝言。

5A 林恕容

說實話,一開始是抱著玩樂的想法參加的,到了廣州才發現姊妹學校──廣州市南武中學師生上下均十分重視這個比賽。於是我們只好硬著頭皮,在一天內跟上他們的進度。

馬不停蹄的練習雖然辛苦,但當地的同學非常友善。在旅遊車上我們聊了許多,他們的生活比香港的學生更為勞碌,學習態度卻十分認真,當我們嘆道功課很多,他們卻鼓勵我們說努力學習才能有更美好的將來。我們互相在「微信」加了好友,即使回到香港了,我們還保持聯絡,未來我還計劃要在暑假到廣州探望他們,他們還客氣地說要盡地主之誼呢!

5D 吳敏怡

來到廣州的第一天,南武中學的學生熟練地表演比賽內容,而自己卻毫無準備,不禁愧疚。我們都不得不加快腳步進行綵排,可我們連朗誦的內容也只能勉強背出,南武中學的學生在旁指導我們,改正我們的錯誤,絲毫沒有怪責之意,還叫我們放鬆一點,使我們眾人都激起了鬥志,不論是為了兩間學校的聲譽,或是同學的期盼,我們都想全力以赴,不想比賽有任何的遺憾。

當晚我們夜深才回到酒店,站了數小時的雙腿變得痠痛,恨不得倒頭便睡。但當晚我們洗澡後便集中在同一個房間中朗誦,互相支持,忘卻了疲累,通宵達旦直至對內容更熟悉及追上節奏。

我最深刻的並非得獎,而是留下了一段段友誼。在兩天內,我倆姊妹學校一起進餐,進食的過程中,大家互相分享兩地的趣事,留下不少「自拍」,全是鬼臉和笑容。兩地的學生更在練習及化妝時忙裡偷閒切磋琴技,也彼此留下了聯絡方式。

International Junior Science Olympiad - Hong Kong Screening 2017 (只提供英文版本)

Our school participated in the International Junior Science Olympiad - Hong Kong Screening 2017, which was co-organised by The Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education, the Gifted Education Section of the Education Bureau (EDB), the Hong Kong Association for Science and Mathematics Education, and the Chief Executive's Award for Teaching Excellence Teacher Association. The event was held at Cheung Sha Wan Catholic Secondary School on 24th September 2016. Our student Yu Pak Hei and Lo Yat Fung from 3A have been awarded Second Class Honours while Chiang Wing Yi from 3E has been awarded Third Class Honour. Here are their reflections on the competition.

Reflection by YU Pak Hei 3A(31)

It is my honour to be one of the participants representing my school to have participated in the International Junior Science Olympiad (IJSO). This competition covers most of the Form3 Physics, Chemistry and Biology syllabuses, which have not been taught. However, I took it as a challenge. The result is surprising and it is a great experience for me.

To prepare for this competition, I spent the whole summer vacation revising what I had learnt in Form 1 and Form 2 and what I would learn in Form 3. Besides doing revision, I searched extra information in order to learn the new terms and knowledge of Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Also, I tested myself with past papers to see whether I understood the knowledge well or not. It was hard for me to keep acquiring new knowledge while finishing the summer holiday assignments and participating in some extra-curricular activities. However, I enjoyed being so busy because I know 'no pain, no gain'. If I work hard, I will earn something in future. I did indeed. I won a second class honour in the competition and gained a valuable experience.

Last but not least, I have to thank all my teachers for the training they offered. They spent extra time helping me prepare for the competition. I would not have had such a good result without their commitment.

To conclude, in order to get good results in competitions, the only way is to try our best to prepare for the competition well and not to give up when facing problems and opponents. This can be applied to studies as well. We always have to try our best. 'No pain, no gain' is the key to success.

Reflection by LO Yat Fung 3A(20)

In September 2016, I participated in the International Junior Science Olympiad (IJSO) 2017 – Hong Kong Screening. There were questions about Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

I had known nothing about IJSO before Mr. Yam introduced it to me. After the introduction, I found it was a good opportunity to improve my thinking skills and enrich my knowledge of science.

Our school provided much training as support. Mr. Yam, Miss Yong and Mr. Tse prepared me for Physics, Chemistry and Biology questions respectively. They spent a lot of time helping me solve different kinds of questions and consolidating my basic knowledge of the above subjects. What I have learnt was useful when answering questions in the Hong Kong Screening of IJSO.

Before the screening, I had worked hard and learnt a lot. Therefore, in the competition, I understood most of the questions and answered them with confidence. Indeed, some of the questions were difficult since there were traps which tricked me.

At the end, the result was released. I won a second class honor and I am satisfied with my result since my effort was rewarded and I am shortlisted for Phase I of the 14th International Junior Science Olympiad Student Training Programme, which allows me to acquire more scientific knowledge.

All in all, my participation in this competition is unforgettable and beneficial. I thank my school and teachers for giving me this precious opportunity. I want to thanks Mr. Yam in particular. Without him, I would not have heard of this competition. He offered me a great opportunity, which enhanced my scientific thinking.

Reflection by CHIANG Wing Yi 3E(6)

I am glad to be given a chance to represent my school to join the International Junior Science Olympiad. I remember I was shocked when I knew that I could join the competition as this competition covered all the science knowledge learnt in Form 1 and 2. I found it hard to prepare by myself. Luckily, my teacher advisors, Mr. Yam, Miss Yong and Mr. Tse, spent their spare time helping me with the preparation during the summer holiday. I am grateful for their assistance and guidance.

Whenever I had any questions, I would jot them down in a notebook and ask teachers for clarification. Asking questions is very useful for my learning because I can understand the concepts more thoroughly and even learn something extra to improve my own knowledge. Also, I read a lot of reference books about science, which helps me learn knowledge beyond my textbook, for example, the predicted reactions of all the elements in air and the human body structure. Extensive reading helps me better prepare for the competition.

After the competition, I have gained a lot of valuable experience. I truly understand that learning is boundless and endless. There are many things that I have never heard of. The competition allows me to satisfy my eagerness to learn and read more. Besides, I have learnt to stay calm. During the competition, I was nervous because I was not confident enough. But after calming myself down, I found that the competition was not that difficult. No matter how difficult the challenge is, putting effort and trying my best help me become more confident and perform better. Even the result is not as good as what I expected, I would have no regrets.

I am glad that to win a third class honour. I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to all teachers and classmates for their support and encouragement.

第五屆校際香港歷史文化專題研習比賽(高級組文字報告)

太平館是香港一間著名餐廳,瑞士雞翼、燒乳鴿、煙鯧魚都是它的手首本名菜。如果要為太平館定位,它究竟是西餐廳還是中餐廳呢?太平館一副懷舊西餐廳格局,但店內,除了甜品以外,所有菜式都有豉油調味,故此又有「豉油西餐」的稱號;而且它講求中國人飲食觀中「著重新鮮」的要求,至今依然使用新鮮食材。上學年四位高中同學,便與太平館第五代傳人徐先生進行深入的口述歷史訪問,並參考文獻,以題為《我愛豉油西餐:由太平館看中西飲食文化的融合》的研習報告,參加由香港歷史博物館及香港中華文化促進中心合辦的「第五屆校際香港歷史文化專題研習比賽」,榮獲高級組文字報告冠軍。茲列得獎生名單如下:

第五屆校際香港歷史文化專題研習比賽(初級組文字報告)I

粵語流行曲於香港本土文化中有著重要的地位。五十年代初期,粵語流行曲尚未成形,傳統粵曲一直都是香港華人的主流大眾音樂,但粵語流行曲的種子——小曲卻於當時開始萌芽,不少出色的粵曲人,敢於創新,嘗試創作全新的小曲,成為粵語流行曲的雛型。直至六十年代,西方音樂潮流日盛,青少年都視組成樂隊演唱為時尚,造就了一批音樂專才,對日後粵語流行曲的發展貢獻良多。到了七十年代,在香港人身份認同感改變,加上電視媒體的發展、外語及國語歌手轉型以及音樂人敢於創新的共同影響下,粵語流行曲快速冒起,成為香港的重要大眾娛樂。本校五位初中級同學,參加由香港歷史博物館及香港中華文化促進中心合辦的「第五屆校際香港歷史文化專題研習比賽」,以粵語流行曲為主題,進行專題研究,其報告《本土與西方:五十至七十年代香港粵語流行曲的發展》榮獲初級組文字報告冠軍。茲列得獎生名單如下:

Secondary School Mathematics and Science Competition (SSMSC) 2016 (只提供英文版本)

Secondary School Mathematics and Science Competition (SSMSC) 2016, a yearly competition organized by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, aims at promoting students' interests in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. This year we are delightful that two of our school's awardees have achieved an outstanding result. 5E Mak Siu Hong won a Distinction in Chemistry, a High Distinction in Biology and a Medal in Physics while 5E Ho Cheuk Nam won a High Distinction in Physics and a Medal in Chemistry. Here are the reflections of the above-mentioned students regarding the competition.

Reflection on Secondary School Mathematics and Science Competition
6E Mak Siu Hong

It is my honour to be one of the participants representing my school to have participated in the competitions of three subjects, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. At the beginning, I did not expect to get such excellent results in all three subjects because I am not very good at Biology and Chemistry. As the competition covers the whole HKDSE syllabus, I took it as a chance for revision and preparation for the HKDSE. Through the competition, my science knowledge has improved a lot. This is the most valuable reward. The awards I have won are just a bonus.

To prepare for the competition, I have adopted three different strategies towards the three papers. For the Physics paper, I knew I have the ability to solve all the problems. Therefore, I needed to be careful when studying the questions to avoid jumping into the traps. It is the worst if I know how to solve the problem but get trapped and choose the wrong answer, so I tried my best to prevent making such mistakes. For the Biology paper, it was totally different from the Physics one. I did not even know the answers of one-third of the questions. However, I knew that competitions aim to test whether participants have the ability to choose the correct answers. As long as I can get the correct answers, it is not important whether I solve it by myself or just guess the right answer. As a result, I tried my best to answer every question by guessing or intuition. The result turned out to be really surprising. The most important is not to give up even though you know nothing about it. If we try our best, everything is possible. For the Chemistry paper, the questions were unexpectedly easy. However, the award is not based on how many marks we have got, but depends on the percentile we are ranked among all the participants. Thus, easy questions mean that we have to get reasonably high marks to achieve a good result. Every single question is important, so no careless mistakes should be made. If we lose marks in a careless way, the award will slip off from our hands.

Last but not least, I need to thank my teachers for the training they offered. They spent extra time helping me to prepare for the competition. I would not have had such a good result without their commitment.

To conclude, in order to get a good result in the competition, the only way is to try our best regardless the difficulty of the questions and the strength of the opponents. The questions can be both easy and difficult. The same applies to the opponents. In all cases, we always need to try our best. This is the only way to succeed.

Reflection on Secondary School Mathematics and Science Competition
6E Ho Cheuk Nam Ryan

In May 2016, I participated in the Secondary School Mathematics and Science Competition. There were contests in Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics and candidates can choose the subject in which they want to compete. For me, Chemistry and Physics are my areas of expertise. Therefore, without a doubt, I would choose to compete in these two subjects.

Our school provided much training for us as support. However, I believed these were not enough for me to get an outstanding result as all the competitors in this competition were the elites from different schools. Everyone was making their most efforts to fight for the best. I knew I am not a genius in science and sometimes a simple question could make me struggle. Thus, I fully immersed myself in studies and turned a blind eye to anything that may distract me. As imagined, it was tiresome and boring. Thoughts about giving up kept appearing in my mind. Nevertheless, I held on and kept on studying non-stop for about two months.

Finally, the day came. I was not panicked or nervous as I knew I had done my best. There was no regret for me. I took out my pen and finished the task as usual. It was not a difficult task but there were numerous tricky questions and traps. Yet, having seen them before, there was no way they could fool me again.

At the end, the results of the contest were released. I am honoured to be awarded a Medal in Chemistry and High Distinction in Physics. More importantly, I am pleased and appreciate that none of my endeavour has been wasted. It also reminds me that if you want to improve, you must work so hard that it may hurt, but this is inevitable according to the proverb ‘no pain, no gain’. After all, my participation in this competition is unforgettable and beneficial. I thank my school and teachers for giving me this precious opportunity.

Hong Kong Physics Olympiad 2016 (只提供英文版本)

It is delightful to announce that our students performed well in the Hong Kong Physics Olympiad 2016, organized by The Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education, on 8 May 2016. 5E Tse Lap Yan won a third honour and here is his reflection regarding the competition.

Reflection on Hong Kong Physics Olympiad 2016
5E Tse Lap Yan

Through this competition, I have some new experiences which enlighten and change my thoughts. I also rejoice for having a chance to test my limit in this Hong Kong Physics Olympiad (HKPO).

Indeed, I had not heard anything about the HKPO before Mr. Yam introduced it to us. I thought this was a chance for me to learn more about Physics. Therefore, I joined the competition. Before the competition, Mr. Yam spent lots of time preparing us for answering the questions. During the practice, our learning was extended and I learnt some new ways of thinking and calculating. Although I could not understand all of the new knowledge, I still spent lots of time and effort trying to absorb as many mew techniques as possible. I was like a sapling wanting to absorb light and water to grow into a giant tree.

While I was doing the past papers of HKPO, I found that there were quite a lot of questions I could not solve. However, Mr. Yam can always solve these questions with the knowledge I have learnt. At that moment, I knew that I could not apply the techniques I have learnt skillfully to the questions. I then spent even more time on the past papers.

In fact, it was not my first time joining the Grand competition.

However, I could still feel the pressure aroused by this competition. Although I have tried my best preparing for it, there were still some questions I could not solve. I started suspecting my ability. Do I lack a gift in Physics? I asked myself several times during the competition. In the middle of the competition, some students gave up. However, I wanted to try my best and perform well in the competition. I worked until the last moment. I did not know if I was going to win any award. I only knew I had strived as much as possible.

Finally, I was awarded a third honor. I want to thank Mr. Yam. He spent much time teaching us with his spare time only for improving our performance in the competition. Besides, he is the one giving me a chance to widen my horizons. We spend most of our time at school, so our perspective will usually be trapped within the school. I have experienced the wonder of knowledge after this competition. There must be someone who is better than us in some subjects. Therefore, don't underestimate ourselves.

After this competition, I have also learnt the importance of striving. Did I win a third award simply by acquiring the techniques and knowledge taught by Mr. Yam? I do not think so. The only contributing factor is diligence. During the process of learning, trying and understanding are necessary. We can only learn things when we spend time reflecting on them. We should also concentrate when we are absorbing new knowledge.

2015-2016中國中學生作文大賽(香港賽區「旭日文學之星」) (Chinese version only)

「中國中學生作文大賽」由中國作家協會兒童文學委員會、中國全國婦女聯合國兒童中心、中國少年兒童報刊工作者協會中學報刊專業委員會聯合主辦。

「香港賽區」作為「中國中學生作文大賽」其中一個賽區,共有240間中學及111,615位中學生參加。是次大賽以「我成長,我擔當」為主題,本校中五甲班林雅蔚同學憑<逆襲>一文獲評高中組首十五名,勇奪高中組金獎。評判之一知名作家余非女士點評林同學的作品為「把人情道理的分寸拿捏得恰到好處,也有文字功力把親情寫得自然真切」,認為此文是優秀佳作。

« 逆襲 »   S.5A 林雅蔚

  今年,我學會了踏單車。單車,讓我學會了成長。

  記得六歲那年,爸爸要我學會踏單車。或許因為我懦弱,所以我不敢,不敢坐上去,不敢向前進。最後,硬著頭皮起步了,前面的大樹卻無情把我擊倒。所以,可憐的兩輪車,一直被我討厭,我們之間就像有一段顯赫的距離。自從那次意外後,我再沒有碰過單車。等到今年十六歲,我要我自己學會踏單車。因為環境驅使我成長,促使我改變,迫使我打破十年前那懦弱的心。結果,這次成功了。

   年頭,媽媽的公司做不住了,失業了。以後的日子只靠爸爸一人的工資養活全家,這是個突如其來的逆轉,是個難以接受的事實。就像世界末日的先兆般,對我、對我家而言,是一個無與倫比的打擊,因為失去了一個重要的經濟支柱。媽媽對我們宣佈失業的那夜,單位內只有電視熒幕發出的燈光,毫無生氣,大家皆難掩憂愁之色。

   我家在林村,交通不太方便,只有巴士和小巴,偶爾有的士。巴士的車資一來一回都要十多塊錢。爸媽都是節儉的人,自從媽媽沒有工作後,家裏更是分毫也不浪費,所以很久沒有一家四口出外吃飯了,每天飯桌只是簡單而味淡的餸菜。

  文明的社會,有火車、地鐵等一閃即逝的高速交通工具,但爸媽選擇單車,為的是反擊生活上的失意。媽常說:「一天省十元,十天省了一百元,那一年三百六十五天就省了三千六百五十元……」那麼,計全家四個人的話,豈不是省了一萬四千多元?所以集腋成裘的一毫子絕不能妄自菲薄。這驅使爸媽每天外出來回也踏單車。

   由我家出發,踏單車去太和要二十五分鐘,去大埔墟要三十五分鐘,而我的學校在大埔墟火車站附近。自從媽媽失業後,就嚷著每天給我送飯。看著我的同學三五成群、魚貫而出地衝出校門,剩下的就只是一部單車倚著一個模糊的身影。我怕被同學冷嘲熱諷,所以接過飯盒就馬上回課室裏吃。

  今年夏天, 總覺天氣特別熱,大地燒得正紅。人人都流下豆大般的汗水,待陽光再次蒸發。然而,午飯的鐘聲一響起,只有媽媽風雨不改地站在校門,等著我,大概因為怕我餓。當然模糊的身影旁總有部單車。

  正午,烈日當空。媽媽騎著的是兩輪單車,不是四輪私家車,花了三十五分鐘來抵受紫外光的煎熬,終於來到我的學校。只是送個飯,轉過頭來就馬上回家了,又開始另一個三十五分鐘。眼見媽媽的手臂膚色一天比一天黝黑,我的心坎不禁塌了。時光荏苒,千瘡百孔的夏天,終於捱了過去。

  今年冬天,總覺天氣特別寒,大家不願在外抵受寒風刺骨的感覺。而媽媽,仍每天準時來到。看見媽媽的臉紅了,自己也不好受,因為再這樣下去,不知凜冽北風甚麼時候會把媽媽的臉頰劃破。但,她依然堅持。

  「今天只是白飯和蕃薯葉。」我家種了一大堆蕃薯苗,但冬天難以生長,而且外面菜肉的價格也與日俱增,所以這些都是媽媽在前一些日子摘好的。而且,家裡沒有暖飯壺,因此媽媽會用看過的頭條日報包着膠飯盒,所以經過長途送來的午餐還是暖笠笠的。天氣雖然冷冰冰,不過,午飯的暖意足以蓋過一切。接過飯盒,仿佛擁有着對抗逆境的力量。「嘎嘎吱吱……」回眸一看,媽媽在俯仰之間已消失於人群中。

  「嘎嘎吱吱……」是單車輪受壓時發出的聲音。我家今年新添了四部單車,全部都不是買回來的,而是鄰家扔出來的。那時,從沒想過它們會改變這逆轉的生活。而爸爸,卻毫不躊躇的把它們托回家。單車只是舊了,功能還是可以用的,不過剎掣有時會失靈。

  家裡共有四部單車,八個外軚,九個內軚。

  單車的鐵管生銹,加上車軚也不堅軔,所以經常「爆軚」。第一次爆軚,爸爸猶豫地買了一個全新的內軚替換;第二、三、四……十次爆軚,再也沒有買新的。「爆軚」其實是指內軚的空間不能承受過盛的空氣粒子,所以爸爸會仔細找出內軚破了的地方,再作出補救,通常只是一個小洞。

  我一直覺得,要在黑色的車軚表面上找一個小洞,實在是雞蛋裡挑骨頭。但爸爸常說:「如果為了個小洞而買一個新的內軚,太花費了……」爸爸雖然粗聲粗氣,性子倔強,卻十分細心。我站在旁邊,看著爸爸把破了的內軚放在水裡,然後輕輕擠軚裏面的空氣,水面浮出氣泡的地方就是小洞的地方。接著,爸爸叫我替他在舊車軚上剪一個小方塊,給他貼在「患處」。就這樣,破車軚又可以重新再用。這就是家裡有九個內軚的原因。創造了第九個內軚,也就意味著:創造了反擊的奇蹟。

  有時候,我會埋怨為什麼媽媽這麼笨保不住工作;有時候,我會埋怨為什麼偏偏在這時候迎來逆境;有時候,卻會埋怨自己不能幫忙分擔。

  騎單車的時候,空氣阻力特別大,不知是否風來風去,抹掉了爸媽頭髪的光彩。雲捲雲舒,花開花落,冬去春來,短短一年,由媽媽失業起,爸媽的愁緒盡顯露在頭髮上,白髮漸出,年華漸去。老爸老媽年長了,我也是時候成長了。

  所以,我倏地決心學踏單車。

  坐在單車上,深深體會到既難控制,又難平衡的恐懼感。這喚起了六歲時揮之不去、抹之不掉的童年陰影。那次因為撞樹而去醫院縫了幾針……然而,我覺得我有必要踏單車,我要為爸媽分擔。從今年九月起,我每天踏單車上學放學。雖然,我的單車外表一點也不可觀,但我為它改了個名字叫「朋友號」。以後的日子,不知怎麼突然喜歡讓「朋友號」倚著我的身影,像媽媽一樣。繼而我發現,反擊的力量源於單車與身影的互相依賴。

  踏單車上學放學的話,我就能幫忙節省。

  媽媽就可以放心搭巴士來送飯。

  爸爸就可以再買一個新內軚。

  現在,家裏共有四部單車,八個外軚,十個內軚。

  一家四個人偶爾在星空下緩緩踏單車,因為怕夜風再抺去爸媽頭髮的光彩; 因為想凝住天倫之樂的一幕。

  我伸手想觸摸心天,觸不到。但在指縫間,看到了閃爍的繁星,好似意味着逆襲難以避免,更闃然無聲地駕來,然後又被我們的正能量覆蓋得無影無蹤。

  我,有一個節儉而滿足的家。我成長,我擔當。

評判余非女士評語:

本文是優秀佳作!有同學會把純純的正能量故事歸類為「心靈雞湯」,彷彿這種故事有「類型」,顯淺易寫。事實絕非如此!本文之所以成績突出,不是因為它屬於「純」「正」「類型」,是作者把人情道理的分寸拿捏得恰到好處,也有文字功力把親情寫得自然真切。

於技巧上,首尾既是呼應,也是文意提升。文中有兩個相當成功的細節──媽媽送飯與爸爸修單車,令文章有生活實感,整體效果清新可喜。

作者的文學觸覺不俗,描寫上有佳句(如尾三份一段落那幾句:描寫父母頭髮失去光彩,彷彿是因騎單車所致);雖然有一兩處用字不準確,屬小瑕疵而已。

Champion in the CityU Discovery and Innovation Debating Challenge 2015-16 (只提供英文版本)

The CityU Discovery and Innovation Debating Challenge 2015-16 was organized by City University on 30th January 2016. Around 180 participants took part in the event and attended a lecture by a professor in one of their prospective study choice areas related to their specific debate topic in the afternoon. The whole-day experience provided an excellent opportunity for students to work through issues connected to their top tertiary study preferences and get a taste of university life.

Our school's English Debate Team was one of the participating teams which completed the debate in the prospective university area – School of Creative Media (SCM). We were on the negative side while Maryknoll Fathers' School was on the positive side. The debaters were 4A Chao Adrian Arthur, 5A Lau Sum Yin Phoebe and 5E Ho Yiu Him Matthew. 4A Lee Man Ching Phoebe took the role of the Chairperson in the debate. The other team members including 4E Chan Wai Lun Adrian and 4A Li Tim Fung Tim were the audience in the debate. The debate motion was that 'Discovery and innovation are the keys to succeeding in a fast changing world'. The opponent's team line was that discovery and innovation propels our world while our team line was that social support and practicality are the true keys to succeeding. Our team thought that discovery and innovation are important, but without social support and practicality, it would fail.

With our well-thought arguments and prompt rebuttals, we won over the debate. It was a truly challenging yet fruitful learning process. From this challenge, our debaters have learnt the importance of time management and sufficient preparation to hone in a debate. Although nervousness may be influential, practice definitely makes perfect.

International Junior Science Olympiad - Hong Kong Screening 2016 (只提供英文版本)

Our school participated in the International Junior Science Olympiad - Hong Kong Screening 2016, which was co-organised by The Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education, the Gifted Education Section of the Education Bureau (EDB), the Hong Kong Association for Science and Mathematics Education, and the Chief Executive's Award for Teaching Excellence Teacher Association. The event was held at Cheung Sha Wan Catholic Secondary School on 26th September 2015. Our student Wong Shin Ying Janice from 3A and Yeung Man Hin from 3E have been awarded Third Class Honours. Here are their reflections on the competition.

3A Wong Shin Ying Janice

In September 2015, I joined the International Junior Science Olympiad 2016-Hong Kong Screening with five schoolmates. Before the competition, Mr. Tse, Mr. Chu and Mr. Yam revised with us the scientific knowledge that we learnt in Secondary 1 and 2 in intensive training.

While we were having the competition, we found the questions unexpectedly challenging since many of them were unfamiliar to us. All I could think of was to try my very best to answer the questions. Fortunately, I won the Third Class Prize, which really surprised me.

This was a meaningful learning experience for all of us as we have definitely learnt so much more about science by competing with over 1,000 participants from different schools in Hong Kong. Besides, I have also become keen on science. I have realised that there are still numerous unimaginable and intriguing discoveries beyond the classroom waiting for us. This enhances my interest in science and motivates me to think about the nature and the principles behind theories.

Finally, I would like to express my gratitude to my school and my teachers for giving me a valuable chance to participate in this competition, allowing me to further explore about science.

3E Yeung Man Hin

I am very glad to be one of the participants to join the International Junior Science Olympiad. It was a great opportunity to challenge myself and at the same time to win the glory for my school.

At first, I was not too interested in science and I had no confidence in getting any awards. Luckily, my teacher Mr. Yam, Mr. Chu and Mr. Tse patiently gave us a lot of training to equip me with abundant amusing knowledge of science. I gradually developed my interest in it.

I was exposed to a lot of new and challenging concepts, which I found very difficult to understand. Still, I cherished this precious chance that my teachers gave me. I put my all-out effort to prepare for the competition. During the competition, I finished every question carefully. Although I did not have much time to check my work, I gained experience when applying what I have learnt. At last I won the third honour and I felt a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction with my performance.

I would like to thank all the teachers who spent their valuable time teaching me a lot of interesting scientific knowledge and gave me the opportunity to gain a priceless experience.

第四屆校際香港歷史文化專題研習比賽(高級組文字報告)

在經濟條件和教育機會匱乏的社會,都會產生童工問題。香港早於一九二二年立法禁止僱用童工,但直到上世紀七十年代,童工問題一直困擾香港社會。一九七七年,港督麥理浩宣佈實行九年強逼免費教育,童工問題才基本解決。根據剛解密的檔案,原來九年強逼免費教育的構思和港府擬定的有很大分別,當時英國政府曾因此對港督施壓。本校四位高中級同學就以童工為主題進行考察,以題為《童工!同工!:由童工立法到九年免費強逼教育的半世紀追蹤1922-1977》的研習報告,參加由香港歷史博物館及香港中華文化促進中心合辦的第四屆校際香港歷史文化專題研習比賽,榮獲高級組文字報告冠軍。茲列得獎生名單如下:

List of Individual AwardeesAward
4A Chan Ho LeungSecond Honour
4E Mak Siu HongThird Honour

Based on the total scores of the top 5 students from each participating school, our school won an Honourable Mention in the competition.

Here are the reflections of the above-mentioned students regarding the competition.

4A Chan Ho Leung

As one of the participants of Physics Olympiad 2015, I am grateful to have this opportunity because I have learnt a lot of interesting knowledge and gained an invaluable experience.

At first, I had no faith in winning the award because some of the questions were really challenging. Fortunately, my teacher Mr. Yam gave us intensive trainings before the competition. During the training sessions, I was given a lot of past papers in order to be more familiarized with the topics. Although it was hard to understand some of the difficult concepts in physics, I managed to understand all of them. After all, I treasured every moment in the training sessions as my horizons have been broadened.

Initially, I was not capable of digesting all the concepts. Yet, I had no intention of giving up. Notwithstanding the difficult tasks, I was determined to give my best try during the competition because I would definitely have regretted if I had wasted the chance. Therefore I attempted all the questions carefully. I did the multiple choice questions slowly as I had to choose the best alternatives. When I started working on the long questions (structured questions), I went through all of them before writing down the answers because I would like to finish the easier ones first. At the time when I came across the question about 'Moment', I felt much soothed and answered the question with confidence and concentration. Nonetheless, I was still rather anxious so I checked the answers for several times after finishing the whole paper. Although I was not sure whether the answers were correct or not, I was satisfied and confident.

Thanks to the trainings provided by my respected teacher, together with the effort that I paid, I am fortunate enough to win this award. I have learnt that people who are persevering and strong-willed will be rewarded. No matter how complex an obstacle is, with confidence and determination, we can still overcome it. Otherwise we will always be a loser.

4E Mak Siu Hong

Winning a third-class award is not something extremely difficult, but still it is not something easy. The questions raised in the Physics Olympiad are very different from the ones in school examinations. The topics included are different and it is much more difficult. In order to tackle the problems, we were trained for around 12 hours. I need to thank Mr. Yam for his teaching. Physics is a very difficult subject. It is impossible for me to learn it by myself. I would have won nothing in the competition without Mr. Yam's guidance.

The paper consists of two parts. One contains MC questions and the other one includes conventional questions. Some students may think that it is easy to win an honour if we can answer most of the MC questions correctly by guessing. Indeed, it is true that luck may affect the result. However, that happens occasionally and I think ability is still the most important. When a student is good at physics, he or she will always have a higher chance to guess the correct answer because his or her intuition of physics is better than other students. Therefore studying hard is the only way to get a better result in the competition.

Secondary School Mathematics and Science Competition (SSMSC) 2015 (只提供英文版本)

Secondary School Mathematics and Science Competition (SSMSC) 2015, a yearly competition organized by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, aims at promoting students' interests in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. This year we are delightful that two of our school's awardees have achieved an outstanding result. 5E Mong Kin Ip won two High Distinctions in Mathematics and Physics while 5E Cheung Lok Hin won two High Distinctions in Chemistry and Physics. Here are the reflections of the above-mentioned students regarding the competition.

5E Cheung Lok-hin

The Secondary School Mathematics and Science Competition is a competition organized by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Its purpose is to promote students' interests in Mathematics and Science subjects through competitions. It is my honour to be chosen as one of the participants. I am so excited about having won High Distinction awards in two subjects, Physics and Chemistry.

At the very beginning, I knew that the participants of this competition are the elites of all schools in Hong Kong, so I was not hoping for any award but joining the competition in a relaxing manner. Nevertheless, our Mathematics and Science teachers gave us intensive trainings before the competition. I came to know that I had to take it seriously.

In the competition, students were required to finish the papers within one hour and fifteen minutes. It was a rush indeed. Fortunately, the questions were based on the HKDSE syllabus, so we simply tried our best to finish the papers by recalling what we had studied and our teachers had taught in class. To me, the competition seems to be a mock prior to the HKDSE.

Though I have won High Distinction awards for two science subjects, the honour should belong to our teachers. They have spent a lot of time giving extra lessons to us. They taught us the skill of understanding and answering the questions. Such intensive trainings help us to discover our weaknesses and accordingly make improvements. Hence, I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to Mr. Yam, Mr. Chu and Mr. Kwong for giving us support and guidance throughout the competition. It is always true that classrooms can survive without iPads and computers, but never without inspirational teachers.

As I have mentioned before, this competition seems like a mock for the HKDSE, the High Distinction awards are really a shot in the arm and gives me confidence to face such a formidable exam. I will get well-prepared and strive for my best!

5E Mong Kin Ip

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University holds the Secondary School Mathematics and Science Competition every year. The competition aims to arouse students' interest in Mathematics and Science. The elites from different schools in Hong Kong join the competition and compete for the best result. It is my honour to be one of the participants representing my school.

I would like to start with my gratitude for my Mathematics and Physics teachers, Mr. Kwong and Mr. Yam. Their commitment is the key to my outstanding results. Since the competition covers the whole NSS syllabus, my teachers had to spend a large amount of extra time tutoring all the school representatives. I can still remember all the exercises we did with Mr. Yam. It is a very precious experience for me.

"Practice makes perfect" is the golden rule that applies to all kinds of competitions. The preparation for the competition was distressing. However, the complicated questions were not my only source of pressure. Keeping a well-balanced life between the training and schoolwork was tougher than I expected. Luckily with all the support from my teachers, I could still manage to overcome all the challenges. Mr. Kwong taught us different skills to tackle the multiple choice questions quickly. Besides, Mr. Yam guided us to complete the past papers of SSMSC, which certainly helped us to deal with the hardest questions in the competition. I am truly glad that our diligence has been rewarded. Through all these experiences, my exam skills have been enhanced and my understanding of the acquired knowledge has been improved.

I can still remember how excited I was when I knew I won High Distinction in both subjects. The results are surprising and encouraging. Since the competition covers the whole NSS syllabus, it is a great chance to do revision on the two subjects. The competition can really help me to discover my abilities. I have also learnt from the strengths of other students. This really helps me to focus more on my weaknesses and improve them before the HKDSE.

Power Station Writing Competition (只提供英文版本)

Aiming to have a better understanding of the current electricity usage and mechanisms of generating electricity in the territory, students studying physics joined a programme organized by the Tai Po Committee on the Promotion of Civic Education, and visited the Castle Peak Power Station on 7th November 2014. There, we visited an exhibition called ‘the Electricity World’ that not only contained informative booths, but also simple experiment apparatus and models to demonstrate the process of generating electricity and saving energy. Then, a few students joined the related Power Station Writing Competition.

Now, we are glad to announce that two students, 5D Lau Sheung Ki and 5E Lee Yin Wing, won the Champion and the First Runner-up respectively in the Writing Competition. The following are the two awarded writings:

5D Lau Sheung Ki

能源供不應求已成為全球矚目的問題, 尤其是香港人耗電量甚高, 情況頗令人憂慮, 同時亦反映出潔淨能源的重要性。透過這次參觀, 不僅使我了解發電的運作模式, 更提高我對環境生態的關注。

電力世界分為五大範疇: 電力101、發電、輸電及配電、能源效益與環保燃料。配合導賞員悉心講解, 加上有趣的遊戲及精彩的短片, 使我理解基本發電和輸電方式。並鼓勵我使用高能源效益產品、減少碳足印, 更認識香港現時採用的環保燃料、領略實踐能源效益的重要性, 令我大開眼界。

此次奇妙的電力之旅令我受益匪淺, 從今我必會珍惜能源、邁向低碳生活!

5E Lee Yin Wing

早前,我與同學一起參觀了位於屯門的青山發電廠。我們參觀了「電力世界」的展覽。通過瞭解發電的過程、設施、及節約用電的秘訣,明白到電力的珍貴,因為發電過程不但複雜難辨,而且煤更是不可再生能源,令我不禁反思現今香港人用電量節節上升,揮霍無度。市民毫無節能的意識,對此置若罔聞。

之後,我又觀看了技術人員如何更換及檢查渦輪蒸汽機。感受著龐然大物所引起的絲絲震動,我更感悔疚。發電的過程艱難無比,但我卻於彈指間輕易浪費了人們的努力。

此次參觀令我獲益良多,我不但學到發電的各科知識,更啟發到我要成為一位懂節約能源的人!

International Junior Science Olympiad-Hong Kong Screening 2014-2015 (只提供英文版本)

Our school participated in the International Junior Science Olympiad-Hong Kong Screening (2014-2015), co-organised by The Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education, the Gifted Education Section of the Education Bureau (EDB) and the Hong Kong Association for Science and Mathematics Education, held at Cheung Sha Wan Catholic Secondary School on 27th September 2014. Our student Liu Tsz Yu from 3E has been awarded a Third Class Honour. Here is his reflection on the competition.

3E Liu Tsz Yu

I was nominated by my Physics teacher to the International Junior Olympiad- Hong Kong Screening. Thanks to my Physics, Chemistry and Biology teachers who provided me with training and guidance, I learnt to solve various problems by myself. Eventually, I won the Third Class Honour in the competition and my achievement is all credit to my teachers.

Through the competition, I learnt a number of things. To begin with, participating in the competition helped me consolidate the science knowledge that I have learnt throughout this school year, such as the diffusion theory. In addition, I learnt to integrate things that I have learnt from different science subjects and apply them to analyze cell structures.

Last but not least, I have learnt to stay calm while overcoming the challenges in the competition. Owing to numerous benefits I gained by joining the competition, I hope that my fellow schoolmates can also make a brave attempt to gain experiences from different competitions and feel the fun of science and achieve a lot more.

4.23 World Book Day Creative Competition 2014 (只提供英文版本)

The Hong Kong Public Libraries organised the "4.23 World Book Day Creative Competition" in 2014 on the theme, "The Earth and I" in support of the "World Book Day" on April 23rd. The English Panel and Library Committee recommended our students to participate in the competition. Au Yeung Connor Christopher Ka Hei (4E) won the Outstanding Award in the Junior English Section, out of over 2000 entries in Hong Kong. Our school has won awards in this competition for three consecutive years.

Our students joined the Prize-giving Ceremony on 26th April 2014 at the Hong Kong Central Library. The works were displayed in the libraries around Hong Kong, Shenzhen and during the Hong Kong Book Fair from April to July 2014.

The following is Connor's work:

To live with Nature: A reading report

Title: Hong Kong Geopark All in One
Publisher: Lions Nature Education Foundation, Cosmos Books Ltd.
Authors: Bernie Owen, Raynor Shaw, W.C. Chan (Chinese translation)

What is shown inside the new Hong Kong Geopark? To most of us, we see rocks of different shapes, colours and sizes; in forms of animals, body-like shapes and such.

However, have we thought how the stones take such a form? Angular? Round? Sharp? Heavy? In this book, chemical processes and geological forms which have formed the unique landscape of the hills and islands of our city have been accurately and explicitly described. Furthermore, it provides a relaxing guide to the contemplation of the products of the processes — the rocks.

It was until I picked up the book and read it over when I realized Hong Kong has its own countryside areas — all we knew about Hong Kong were only packed skyscrapers.

In rows after rows, the dense flow of transport, the meagre quality of air and nights polluted by excessive light throughout the year. What have we done to the greens, the nature and the wilderness? There is a saying, "Land supplies what man needs, not what man desires." Since the Industrial Revolution, humans have already wasted countless resources — trees, coal, crude oil, fresh water, destroyed plenty of lands which could have been a haven for animals, a treasure chest for biological discoveries, even a piece of art from nature itself under the treads, the blades, the motors and wheels of machines in name of "civilization" and "comfort". If nature is a large net, man is just a thin line. Without intertwining with others, there will be no existence of man itself, for we survive not on ourselves, but what we have taken from the land.

Given that we have caused such grave destruction (it still carries on at the moment) to the nature, should we take initiative to reconsider our place on the Earth? A billionaire may enjoy fine delicacies while simple, cheap food would do for a person in poverty, but they both have to eat — we are more intelligent than other creatures; however, this does not imply that their interests may be neglected in order to fulfil our desires!

To live in harmony with nature may be hard for one to adapt to, but we must do so as we humans, however intelligent, are merely living off the expenses of nature. As the Indians wisdom goes, "Our lives are debts to our sons." The debts have gone too far. Now we must compensate for what we have done: whether by technology, shift of living habits or any others, we must stop before there is none of nature left for our off springs — a debt too large and innocent for them to pay for our deeds.

中學數學及科學比賽2014

早前,我校共派出了三十九位同學參加由香港理工大學主辦,一年一度的「中學數學及科學比賽2014」。

是次比賽目的為提升同學於於數學、物理、化學及生物科的興趣。

其中兩名同學表現優異:5E嚴康生同學於數學、物理及生物三個範疇中獲得高級優異獎(High Distinction);5E 林子浩同學則於數學範疇中獲得獎牌(Medal)。

以下是兩位同學於是次比賽中的經驗分享:

5E(18) 林子浩

我很榮幸能在是次由理工大學所舉辦的高中數理比賽2014中獲取數學科的獎牌。

這項比賽舉辦的目的其實是為了提高學生對數學和科學科的興趣,以及提升學生的創造力,解難能力,溝通和協作力。

首先,我想對我的數學老師,就是鄺老師,及其他科學老師表達我不盡的感激。由於是次比賽的考核範圍主要與香港中學文憑考試課程相近,學生如要爭取最佳成績,就必須對課程內容有充分的理解。而鄺老師和其他科學老師在這場比賽中投入大量的時間和精力,以幫助我們了解課程內容,同時亦教授簡單的方法以解決部分選擇題,以及回答問題的技巧。而以上所提及的三項知識,在這比賽上亦得以大派用場,所以我才可在是次比賽獲獎。因着他們付出的努力和奉獻,這次榮譽其實應屬於他們。

這數學比賽要求學生在1小時15分鐘內回答30道選擇題和4道長題目。無疑,學生是會較難在限時內回答所有問題。而且,這些問題,是由大學的教授設置,其中的數學問題不是我們經常面對的,故其題型並不熟悉。不過,這個困難就讓我明白硬背數學問題的解決方法並不能真正解決問題,但如應用上課時老師教授的概念,就可順利解決問題。

正如愛因斯坦所說“經驗是知識的唯一來源。”參加這次比賽後,不僅提高了我對數學興趣,同時也加強了我處理各類數學問題的能力。而當我在頒獎典禮中看其他學校的選手一一領獎,我很快明白何為強中自有強中手,自此以後,我學會在任何時候,無論我有何高的地位,亦要謙虛。

至今,我猶記得當我看見獲取獎牌時是多麼的興奮。面對香港中學文憑考試,這個獎項必定成為我學習路上的強心針,因為事實上,這可能是我中學生涯中最後一次比賽。最後,再一次向所有有份參與是次比賽的老師,及主辦高中數理比賽2014的單位致以感謝。

5E(35) 嚴康生

香港理工大學數學及科學比賽是一個一年一度的大型比賽,其目的是提高同學對於數學及科學的興趣。每一年,全港中學的精英皆雲集於此。我有幸被挑選為是次比賽的參賽者之一,能與全港精英一較高下,更希望藉此挑戰自己。

香港理工大學數學及科學比賽的內容主要包括新高中的課程內容。我們需要在兩個月之內熟悉其中的內容,更需要在日常的課業與比賽的準備之間取得平衡,實在是好不容易。再者,比賽中大多的題目於平常所的有所不同。這些由理工大學講師親自審定的題目,並非公式化的解題方式,而是著重考核多年來所學的知識以及深入的理解。我們要好好利用我們的知識,才能於在比賽中爭取佳績。

是次比賽的成績於七月初公佈,我於數學科、物理課以及生物都取得優秀(High Distinction) 的成績。這個成績驅使我進一步於科學的範疇中發掘自己的興趣。除此之外,我亦從中深深明白到天外有天,人外有人的道理,若然我們只因自己的成績而驕傲自滿,固步自封,我們將不能接受新的知識。

於最後,我希望能於此向各位付出了心血以及時間的老師衷心地表達謝意。若是沒有他們的協助和悉心指導,我們決不能獲得如此的成績。

科技新苗一百計劃

早前,本校派出三位同學參加由香港科技協進會舉辦,第三屆「科技新苗一百計劃」。是次計劃旨在提升同學對科學的興趣,鼓勵同學未來參與科研工作,孕育未來的科學工作者。

本校三名同學經一輪甄選後,脫穎而出,成為「科技新苗一百計劃」的成員:
5E 邱沛聰
5E 湯詠恩
5E 洪庭詣

甄選過程中,每名同學均需撰寫一封自薦信,信中需提及對科研的認知與興趣,更重要是對社會的責任與承擔。

以下是5E 邱沛聰同學所撰寫的自薦信:

本人有幸獲校方推薦參加第三屆科技新苗100計劃,感到十分榮幸。本人素知計劃的目的是透過一系列培訓與考察,從而增進學生的科學知識,鼓勵學生多了解身邊的科學研究與進程,為未來科學發展作出貢獻。本人若有幸成為科技新苗一員,定必會努力研習,回饋社會。

作為理科生,我深深感受到科學與科技,都與人類息息相關。每一次的新發現,都為人類的歷史展開新的一頁。

1665年,科學家羅伯特•虎克從顯微鏡下發現細胞的存在,奠下生物學的基礎。經過短短的四百多年,科技已成熟得能製作一個可以完全植入人體的人工心臟。生物學的急促發展救助了無數的病患者及家屬。人類能夠不斷突破界限,全賴前人的努力。而本人也希望參與科研的工作,秉承前人對科學的探索精神,為人類的未來發展略盡綿力。

1687年牛頓所發表的三大定律,甚至是電磁學等,看似與日常生活亳不相關,然而卻對生活十分重要。我們身邊最平常不過的事如打開蛋卷盒,一個堅固不透風的金屬蛋卷蓋,竟然可以運用槓桿原理便能輕易打開。另外,我們的光纖之父高錕用了畢生的努力打造了以光纖通訊的年代,令我們的通訊變得更快、更準確。現在光纖遍佈全球,無遠弗屆,加強各國人民之間的通訊與聯繫。所以科技越進步,越提升我們的生活素質。

當然,祖國的科技並不落後於人。中國眾多工程中,航天科技最令我自豪。幼時我曾經仰望天際,遙想到底宇宙是甚麼樣子呢? 當我知道中國首位太空人楊利偉,乘坐太空船環繞地球十四周後成功返回地球的創舉後,我便知道探索太空已經不是遙不可及的事情了。

現時中國的航天科技發展一日千里。早前神舟九號成功於天宮一號自動和手動交接,印證了中國的航天技術越漸成熟,當中科研人員為了揭開宇宙的奧秘付出的精神和心力更是功不可沒。無可否認,往後的道路會更艱辛,需要更長時間,但我亦希望自己有幸參與其中,為祖國的各種科研竭盡所能,為人類解開宇宙的奧秘。

在個人方面,我曾有幸參加物理奧林匹克競賽(初级組),當中透過接觸力學的延伸課程,獲取了更多額外的物理知識,例如相對定律等。這令我對物理學產生濃厚興趣。就如這個世界,有不同種類的力量,如萬有引力、磁力和向心力等,令我對世界有嶄新的體會。我渴望藉着今次難得的機會,加深對科學的理解,並學以致用,成為一個對科研有貢獻的人。

本校鼓勵同學透過專題習作學習,並派出三隊同學参與中學數學專題習作比賽。其中一隊獲表現良好獎,另外兩隊更能晉身決賽。因在決賽面試環節有出色表現,兩隊均獲得表現優異獎。

另外,本校於青少年精英選拔賽2013-14亦有優秀表現,參賽的三位中一、中三同學當中,兩位獲頒三等獎,一位同學更奪得二等獎。

通識健康教育計劃2013-2014

本校在二零一三年十月至二零一四年五月期間,參加由香港防癆心臟及胸病協會主辦的「通識健康教育計劃2013-2014」。是次全港性比賽,本校廿多位中二至中五同學共組成五隊參賽。是次計劃以「校園 /家居環境健康及傳染病防治」為主題,同學需要自行擬定題目,草擬計劃書及向大會提交摘要,其間要以問卷調查、訪問、研究文獻、實地考察等方法進行研究和分析工作。本校同學在準決賽向大會作出口頭報告和接受各評判提問,在全港六十四隊中脫穎而出,成為最後六強,進入決賽進行另一次匯報。經過半年的探究,本校兩隊同學在初賽及決賽中表現優異,分別奪得高級組亞軍和季軍。

The 44th International Physics Olympiad (只提供英文版本)

The 44th International Physics Olympiad was held from 7 July to 15 July in Copenhagen, Denmark. A team of five student members of The Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education (HKAGE) representing Hong Kong have returned home proudly with three silver medals and two bronze medals.

We would like to congratulate S6E Shing Ming Tony for his astonishing achievement in winning the silver medal. Tony has outperformed other contestants from all over the world not only because of his ability but also his hard work and effort. Our students should learn from his persistence and enthusiasm to reach their goals in the future.

6E Tony Shing Ming

The 44th International Physics Olympiad (IPhO) was held in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 2013. Following the Asian Physics Olympiad in India last year, it was my honor again to participate in such a great event as one of the representatives of Hong Kong.

The reason for holding the Physics Olympiad in Copenhagen this year is simple – to memorize Neil Bohr, a great physician in the early 1900s, who was one of the founders of modern physics. It was the 100th year after he proposed his great idea on atomic model in Copenhagen, influencing the Physics and Chemistry worlds in the past century. Because of this, the strongest enthusiasm towards Physics was observed in the Physics Olympiad this year.

I really felt honored to be able to visit Copenhagen at such a right time, and more importantly as a representative of my city to compete with other Physics elites worldwide. It was probably the most unforgettable experience I ever had.

In the eight days of the trip, there were only ten hours when we were actually involved in the 'real' competition – five hours for theory exams and another five for experiments. This year's problems were more interesting than expected – for example, meteorite fallen in Denmark, movement of ice sheet in Greenland, and they were not too difficult for me, but they involved lots of our physical sense and logical thinking that fascinated any future Physician. After months of striving, I was eventually awarded a silver medal, ranking 61st at the end of the competition, which I think was already quite satisfying.

In the remaining days following the competition, we participated in tours around Copenhagen. We did not only do simple sightseeing, but participated in other Physics-related activities. We visited different places where important events to the Physics world occurred, like the Neils Bohr Institute where lots of researches were performed, very advanced Physics laboratories in the two renowned universities for Physics researches (University of Copenhagen and Technical University of Denmark), and Assistens Cemetery where Bohr and his family were buried. Even in the amusement park, we finished small Physics tasks while enjoying the rides. More surprisingly, we could even have the chance to attend to a talk about studying Physics from Professor Thomas Bohr, the grandson of Neils Bohr, which was definitely a rare experience for a secondary school student studying in Hong Kong.

But this trip did not only provide me with the chance of tackling interesting Physics problems, or the enjoyable moments in sightseeing but it was also a chance for me to meet people from other parts of the world. To gather those who are ambitious and interested enough to take part in the Physics world's future, IPhO is probably the only opportunity. We shared our experiences and hung out with each other no matter what our nationality or ethnicity is. It was because we all gave heart to the Science world. Thanks to the nice scenery and mild weather in Copenhagen, I enjoyed every moment together with everyone participating in the competition.

Returning our own countries did not mean the end of the fabulous event. With the advanced technology today, we can still keep in contact, discuss interesting Physics problems on the Internet, and continue our dream of contributing to the world of Physics. IPhO never ends – it will forever stay in our hearts.

科技新苗100計劃

由香港科技協進會舉辦的科技新苗100計劃,計劃目的為培養及發展科技人材以及持續推動科學傳承,並從多間參與學校中選出100位學生。本校分別提名以下三位對科學研究有深厚興趣的同學參與是次計劃並全部獲選:

林芷彥 5E
林浩然 5E
嚴子健 5E

獲提名的三位同學必須分別提交自薦信, 內容包括表達對科學的認知及興趣,以及對未來的目標及承擔。以下為其中一位獲選同學林芷彥所提交的自薦信。

敬啟者:

本人為王肇枝中學4E班林芷彥。本人獲校方推薦參加科技新苗計劃,能有這個機會,本人深感榮幸。本人了解此計劃的宗旨是增加學生對科學的知識,希望他們日後能對科學研究及發展作出貢獻。本人如果有幸成為科技新苗的成員,必定會努力研習,將來回饋社會。

首先,本人在學校修讀化學科,而且在日常生活中,我也對藥物及清潔用品的成份極感興趣。除此以外,本人十分喜歡接受挑戰,所以在面對數理問題時,尤其感興趣。所以,本人相信自巳非常適合成為科技新苗的一份子。

此外,本人在修讀化學課程時,也漸漸了解科學的奇妙,和科學研究及發展對世界的影響甚廣。例如是日常生活中所用的塑料袋,玻璃,電池及藥物,都是由不同化學物質組成的。由此可見,我們的生活離不開化學,而且化學的發展也直接提高我們的生活水平。一粒小小的藥丸,如何治療我們的疾病?可惜,本人對科學只有基礎的知識,如原子的基本結構及金屬的特性等,假如能成為科技新苗,參加不同的科學講座和參觀科技建設,必定能吸收更豐富的科學知識,獲益不淺。

除了化學科外,我對生物科也感興趣,從少我就喜歡看記錄片,講述在南極的企鵝如果在零下的溫度下生存;介紹不同奇形怪狀的昆蟲;呼籲我們拯救因冰川融化而面臨絕種的北極熊及堅強的仙人掌如何在沙漠乾旱的氣候下生長,因此我對各種生物都充滿好奇心!

加上,本人也經常在新聞看見中國成功發射火箭到太空,可見祖國的科學發展十分成功,所以本人也希望能自巳能親身到內地交流,一方面能增廣見聞,也能了解更多內地科研發展的情況,一定能大開眼界。

另外,近年來全球暖化的問題的嚴重性已引起各界的關注,面對地球不斷受到破壞,本人也希望能出一份力,透過進行科學研究,研究出能減少燃燒化學燃料時所產生的溫室氣體排放量的方法。或者研究出一種全新的,適合我們使用的再生能源等,能保護大氣層不再受到破壞。

倘若本人能有幸成為科技新苗,對科學將會有一番新的體會,也能加深本人的科學知識。而且了解內地的科技建設及發展後,本人也更明白如何實踐自巳的抱負,透過科學改變世界,為社會作出貢獻,提高我們的生活水平。本人若有幸成為科技新苗成員,一定竭盡所能,參加活動,致力研習科學,不會浪費這個寶貴的學習機會!

 此致

Reflection on Secondary School Mathematics and Science competition 2013
5E  Ng Chi Ho

Secondary School Mathematics and Science competition (SSMSC) is an annually held competition organized by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. The competition offers participants to attempt Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics. In March this year I was nominated to attempt Physics and Chemistry in May as they are the areas of my strength.

Between March and May, a series of intensive training classes were well organized by our Science teachers. As the competition is mainly based on the NSS syllabus (about 70%), students had to be proficient in them within two months' time. Nevertheless, to strike for excellence, our Science teacher also tried to help us by enriching the NSS syllabus topics and teaching us knowledge beyond the syllabus. For example, Mr. Yam, my Physics teacher, had modified questions from past paper of 2012 SSMSC to the challenging ones.

The competitions for Physics and Chemistry were held on 1/5 and 17/5 respectively. Although each paper just lasted for an hour, they indeed managed to test candidates' performances comprehensively. As most of the questions in the test were set by the University, none of them seemed familiar to us. Eventually I had to tackle most of the questions based on the concepts of these subjects. This had reminded me that it would be wiser to have a clear understanding on the fundamental principles and concepts of these subjects in lieu of memorizing "useful formulae" blindly. In addition, it is also significant for us to enhance our speed and accuracy in attempting questions through constant practices so that we can spare more time on tackling challenging questions and final checking in competitions or exams.

The results of the competition were released in early July. To my surprise, I won two Medal certificates (top 2 percentile of candidates) in Physics and Chemistry, together with the Vice-President Award for attaining two Medals. It has left me a wonderful memory as this would probably be my last competition in secondary school's life. Last but not least, I would like to thank all teachers who had contributed tremendous amount of their effort and time in teaching me, and also our school Principal, Mr. Ho, for attending the award presentation ceremony.

Reflection on the Hong Kong Physics Olympiad 2013
4E  Yim Hong Sang

I am glad to have been awarded the Third Honour in Hong Kong Physics Olympiad 2013. I felt very nervous before knowing my result in HKPhO as I got so much pressure from the outstanding performance of our schoolmates last year.

I would like to show my appreciation towards my classmates and our Physics teacher Mr. Yam. My classmates and I had a lot of practices before attending HKPhO. The scope of HKPhO includes motion of point particles, mechanics, work and mechanical energy, and momentum and impulse. Some topics are brand new to me. I need to put in extra efforts to understand the concepts. With the help of Mr. Yam, we devote our time and effort to practice, making ourselves familiarized with the question types and problem-solving skills for the challenges.

After joining HKPhO, my knowledge in physics has been drastically enhanced. Paying extra attention in the training, I further discover my interests in Physics. This valuable experience in Hong Kong Physics Olympiad 2013 stirs up my curiosity to explore more in the field of science. I would not just satisfy with this and I would work harder to strive for better results in other challenges.

核能科技寫作比賽

福島核事故引起了公眾對於核能的種種關注。有見及此,大埔民政處於二零一二年十二月十九日舉辦了一個核能資源中心的參觀活動。該次活動向中學生介紹了有關核能的基本概念和大亞灣核電廠的運作。在該次參觀活動後,大埔民政處舉辦了一個寫作比賽以收集參觀者的反思及對日後核能發展的意見。

核能的反思    5E  林曼雲

日本大地震所導致福島核事故,令市民人心惶惶,甚至引發盲目搶鹽的情況,相信大部分人仍歷歷在目。更有市民因而擔心於香港大亞灣核電廠會對自己造屴影響,而我亦不例外。雖然未進行參觀活動前,在物理課我已對核能有一些基礎的認識。但透過此次的參觀活動,加深了我對核能發電的認識,亦解決不少的疑慮。

中電的核能資源中心雖然不大,但「麻雀雖小,五臟俱全」。中心內設有七個展區,包括:邁向低碳生活、核能知多少、核電安全、燃料循環管理、輻射與日常生活、世界核能發展、核能的未來。中心的導賞員深入淺出地介紹以及解釋有關核能發電的過程、好處、歷史、類型、設施等等。更解釋了有關不同幅射的影響,令我知道只要做了萬全防禦措施,其釋放的幅射亦不會影響到我們。

而最後播放的影片,亦大大地増加了我對大亞灣發電廠的認識,從而得知其結構以及對香港的益處。在未參觀前,我一直認為香港主要都是依靠化石燃料發電,在參觀才得知,香港早於1994年經已投入服務,並為香港提供了接近一半的電力。

此次的參觀確令我獲益良多,雖然未能完全深入了解有關核能的一切,但經已令我的知識得到很大的增長。如再有下一次有關核能的參觀,確實不容錯過。

Reflection on Secondary School Mathematics and Science competition 2012
6E Lam Yu Yeung

On 5th May 2012 I participated in the Secondary School Mathematics and Science competition. Although the competition only lasted about a hour, what I learnt will surely be useful in the future.

The competition was held by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. There were contests in physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics, and candidates may compete in one or more subjects. I entered the physics one since it was my strength, while some of my other classmates joined contests of other subjects.

Our school provided trainings for us as support. I attended Mr. Yam's physics training course, which was enriching. Since the competition tested only knowledge within the HKDSE syllabus, the lesson encircled it. However, Mr. Yam's teaching always extended to knowledge beyond the syllabus, and sometimes, even extended to the scope of other subjects such as chemistry. Besides widening the foundation of our knowledge, this lesson also reminded me that different branches of science are interrelated. One cannot study physics without understanding mathematics, or learn chemistry without some basic knowledge of physics.

The competition of physics was held on 5th May, the same day as the Mathematics one. Before the competition, I did not merely practice the calculations. Instead, I revised the concepts over and over again as Mr. Yam often emphasizes the importance of clear understanding of concepts. The test proved Mr. Yam's belief to be very insightful. We needed to finish thirty-four multiple choice questions and three long questions in an hour and fifteen minutes. With less time and higher difficulty than usual, speed and accuracy in determining the correct answer was essential to winning a prize, and acquaintance of concepts was the key to speed and accuracy. According to the Chinese old saying: only true gold could stand the heat of the furnace. Under the heat of these really difficult questions, only thorough understanding of concepts was the true gold that passed the test.

The results of the contest were not released until September. I was thankful to both my school and the Polytechnic University when I saw my name on the medalist's list. On 13th October I attended the award presentation ceremony in the campus of the Polytechnic University. The ceremony gave me a deep and special impression as medalists – participants whose results were within the top two percentile – were all awarded identical medals and certificates, so the champions and runner-ups were not identified. This reminded me of two important values. Firstly, Victory over others is of secondary significance while victory over ourselves through improvements is of primary importance. Secondly, improvement must go on constantly because who would be champion tomorrow is still unknown.

My participation in this competition is very unforgettable and beneficial. I thank my school for giving me the opportunity and support to compete in it.

Reflections on ISJO HK Screening 2012
3A Mong Ho Yam

After joining the International Junior Science Olympiad (IJSO) – Hong Kong Screening 2012, I have learned more about science. I realized that everything is related to science.

Since the screening was held in September we needed to go to school and had some extra lessons for preparation in the summer vacation. It was hard but the results proved that it was useful and we did not waste the time for this. Although the competition is difficult, I tried my best in completing it. Getting this proud result made me feel surprised.

At the same time, I would like to thank our teachers for teaching us scientific knowledge. Without them, we could not join the competition and get this result. Also I am glad to have these teachers' guidance.

After finishing the competition, I had to attend some courses about science. Although the knowledge in the courses was difficult, I understood the difficult theories and made some new friends who also love science.

I hope I can contribute to the world by inventing some new technology and improving our living standard. For example, I would like to discover some new theories and the methods to prevent diseases in the future. Also, I hope I can become a famous scientist likes Isaac Newton, a great Physicist, Mathematician and Astronomer. Last but not least, this screening was a good experience for me. I hope I will join more science competitions to enhance my scientific knowledge and also get more experience in the future.

English Debate Team in HKSSDC Friendly Debates (只提供英文版本)

Sharing from  4E Cryan Chan

Our English Debate Team participated on the Friendly Debates which were held on the 22nd and 29th of November 2012 respectively. The motion of the debates was that "China's Rising Influence is a Cause for Concern in East Asian Nations". Our team was the proposition side. The opponent teams were HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity II and PLK Ngan Po Ling College.

The critical point of the debate came to our definition of "concern" which means both positive and negative importance. This definition paved the way for our victory since it is undeniable that China sheds both positive and negative influences over East Asian nations in three ways, economically, politically and militarily. After balancing the fierce arguments of both teams, the adjudicators decided that we were the winning team due to our well-organized and well-supported arguments.

After joining the debates, my knowledge about China's growing development and my research skill have been drastically enhanced. My vocabulary bank has been widely broadened too. During preparation, I learnt how to analyze statistics and integrate them into arguments. Before I join the debate team, I used to be shy and unconfident. Nevertheless, the debates have changed me. I think having a debate is a straightforward way to learn and enjoy English. I would like to join more debate competitions in future.

Science and Technology Seedlings 100 Plan (只提供英文版本)

The Science and Technology Seedlings 100 Plan (科技新苗100計劃) organised by Hong Kong Association for Advancement of Science and Technology aims at nourishing students into becoming science professionals. One hundred elite students were elected out of the participating secondary schools. Our school nominated the following three students who are interested in scientific research to participate in the plan and they were all elected:

5E  Kwok Sze Kan
5E  Lam Man Wan
5D  Leung Chung Ling

Vision on Science and Technology
5E  Lam Man Wan

The rapid development of the modern society is based on new technologies and scientific discoveries. Though there is no direct relation between scientific laws and our daily lives, science has proved to have great influence to mankind by providing us a more advanced and comfortable environment.

Before I was promoted to S.4, I had only a shallow understanding of science. Through the school elective subjects, Chemistry and Physics, I have acquired more knowledge of science, such as the structure of atoms, elements, mechanics, electricity and magnetism etc. It was with these basic understanding that I realized the great influence of science on human life. These seemingly distant topics aroused my curiosity in the field of science.

I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to participate in the Hong Kong Physics Olympiad (Junior). I learnt more scientific knowledge related to different aspects through the training, such as the relative motions and simple harmonic motions. Although ultimately I did not win any prizes, the wonderful world of science has been etched in my mind. I can still remember there was a question about skiing. Although I did not know how to answer it, I immediately appreciated the way that science exists in every corner of our lives.

To sustain the efforts of our predecessors, I hope I can make some contribution to the society. When I was a child, I saw all kinds of high-rise buildings in Hong Kong. At that time, I hoped to become an architect when I grow up. Now, I find myself no longer focusing on the eye-catching design of buildings. Instead, I often ponder how such structure could be supported without collapsing. I knew it was the engineers' role which made the design of the architects stand. Therefore, I now hope to become an engineer instead.

Seeing the collapse of the primary schools in the Sichuan Earthquake has strengthened my determination to become an outstanding structural engineer. I would like to see everyone living in firm buildings. In the eyes of ordinary people, this may just be a small "dream", but I think as long as it can contribute to the betterment of mankind, even the slightest things count.

While engineering in China may still be insufficient, there is no doubt the development of our country's aerospace technology is rapid, and therefore I deeply admire the scientists in my motherland. Just within a decade, China has launched several space programmes including China's first ever manned rocket - Shenzhou 5, and the heaviest spacecraft - Tiangong 1.

Seeing the achievements of Chinese scientists, I also hope that I can contribute to my motherland in the future.

Reflection on Asian Physics Olympiad 2012 (APhO)
S.6E 成銘
(只提供英文版本)

The 13th Asian Physics Olympiad was held in New Delhi, India, 2012. It was my honor to be one of the representatives of Hong Kong to participate in this tremendous event.

Before being selected, I went through six months of tough training in HKUST where I was taught university level Physics courses. After the training, four tests were held in order to select students for the coming competitions. I was ranked within the first eight, and fortunate enough to become a part of the Hong Kong Physics team to join the Asian Physics Olympiad 2012.

The Olympiad was held from 2nd to 9th of May. We first met the Australian team on the plane to India, and started building up friendship with them. Soon, we arrived at the New Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport. We then shared the same bus to the arranged hostel. On the bus trip, we chatted happily with each other, marking the beginning of an unforgettable experience.

The next day was the opening ceremony. On that day, more than a hundred people from twenty countries gathered in the New Delhi Manekshaw Centre, all with smile and excitement on their faces. Then the teams went up to the stage one by one. When I stepped onto the stage, I could see Physics elites from different countries gathering in the same hall. At that moment, I realized that it was not only a competition, but also a meeting of budding scientists of all over the world.

The city of New Delhi was barren, and the sun was scorching. However, it did not undermine any of our enthusiasm and devotion to Physics. In the next few days, we got to meet even more friends from different countries including Singapore and Malaysia. All of them showed great passion towards Physics. It was my honour to have a chance to be accompanied by them.

Before the tests, we had revisions with the Australian and the Chinese teams at nights. Without any formality, we sat in a circle in a bedroom, reading the Physics books from different countries, discussing and solving each and every problem. We even talked about the lives and studies in different countries. It was just like a small summit meeting with delegates from different countries, maybe the only difference was that there were no arguments or rages but only knowledge about Physics and the sound of joy.

The saying 'Efforts yield success' is indeed true. In the closing ceremony in Manekshaw Centre, I was glad to be awarded an honorable mention. Going through nearly a year of hard work, I sacrificed so much of my time, so much of my social live to achieve this goal. I believe that all the other participants have come through a similar path. When I saw the medalists receiving their prizes and certificates, I sincerely congratulated them for their persistence in Physics.

On the last day in India, we spent the last minute chatting and sharing with each other. Nevertheless, the topics never left Physics or other domains of science. I was proud of myself for having a chance to participate in such a big event with future scientists from all over the world, and even being one of them.

Although we are from different places, of different races and from different backgrounds, we can still sit together peacefully and discuss freely the beauty and harmony of science. Science is of no national boundaries.

普通話演辭

國務院總理李克強宣佈推出36項挺港措施,於經貿、金融、民生和社會事業、旅遊以及粵港關係方面和香港有更緊密的合作。對於此,我們香港人應抓緊發展機遇,結合自己所擁有的優勢以達至雙贏局面。

首先,讓我們先了解自己的優勢。香港擁有獨特的殖民地歷史背景,在回歸中央後仍保留行政、立法、司法獨立以及經濟自由。加上廉潔的風氣和高教育水平的人民,確能全面配合香港的商貿發展。

有了這些優勢,加上中央大力支持,香港應抓緊機會發展旅遊業。香港是一個中西文化薈萃的國際大都市,因此我們大可以此獨特的背景作發展平台。其中,我們應爭取舉辦大型國際博覽會,如舉辦每年均吸引不少遊客慕名參與的國際名酒節便是一個成功的例子。因此我們應爭取舉辦大型博覽會,集中多國文化精髓,吸引來自世界各地的遊客到香港來。

另外,由於中央開通了人民幣外商直接投資的門徑,在未來會有更多來自國內的同胞到香港營商和旅遊。因此香港人應放下成見,多接納不同人士的文化差異,減少爭論,停止謾罵,與之共融,才是致勝之道。除此之外,香港人也要多學幾種語言,尤其是普通話和英語。這樣才能為旅客提供最優質的服務,亦在國際舞台上盡顯所長。

此外,要配合旅遊開發,便得給旅客營造一個最理想的環境,才能把香港造就成一個頂尖級數的旅遊城市。我們香港人應盡量配合政府所推出的計劃,如停車時把引擎關掉,以改善香港的空氣素質,讓旅客放心,享受旅遊香港的樂趣。

誠如國家主席胡錦濤所言: 有偉大祖國作堅強後盾,在特別行政區政府的帶領下,香港社會各界齊心協力、共克時艱,一定能夠變壓力為動力,化危機為機遇,保持香港繁榮穩定及和諧發展的局面。對!讓我們同舟共濟,和諧共融,為發展香港而努力。

English Speech

Who can imagine that Apple, once a fledgling company, is now one of the global forces to be reckoned with? As we all know, Apple was brought to the top of the world by their former chairperson and CEO- Steve Jobs. But what did Jobs possess so that he can bring victory to Apple? I would have to say, it was his charismatic leadership.

To me, leadership is about being innovative, having persistence and understanding the importance of teamwork. The fact that Jobs was able to revive apple and rebuilt the entire company has to do with all of these qualities.

To begin with, Jobs believed that 'innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower' and he saw the power of innovation when he built his company. At present, we can see the innovative power of Apple through its stylish product designs and its leading role in the industry.

A leader usually faces different brick walls in their life, and Jobs is not an exception. Jobs had once lost a quarter of a billion dollars in a year. But rather than giving up, he treated it as an character-build opportunity. It is his persistence which enabled him to bring prosperity to Apple.

Apart from the two qualities mentioned, Jobs learnt the importance of teamwork. When Jobs was asked to talk about Apple, he said "This is not a one-man show". Despite being the leader of Apple, he insisted on meeting his colleagues in every single department. Through the meetings, he could understand the needs and identify room for improvements in every department thoroughly. Only by improving every minor weak point can the company advance. And the credits belong to their leader—Steve Jobs, for carrying out this orientation.

Unquestionably, Apple's success is due to Steve Jobs' charismatic leadership throughout his term in office. When it comes to Jobs' achievements, what comes across my mind is the threat that Apple poses to its opponents, which can easily be seen by Apple's large market share in the electronic product industry. Not only did Apple enhance the customers' demands, but also beat the morale of other companies. As a result, other companies were required to step forward within a short time to prevent themselves from obsolescence. Last but not least, Apple is regarded as a brand-name in the industry. In the present society, people think highly of brand names. Many tend to support brand-names rather than trying out products of new brands. It is believed that Apple is likely to discourage competing companies from entering the market.

In spite of Jobs' death, it is without a shadow of doubt that Jobs will still continue to pose threats to his opponents due to his past charismatic leadership and his spirit that lives in the heart of the Apple's working team.

第一屆大埔區學界辯論比賽冠軍

中文辯論隊早前參加了由大埔青年協會主辦的第一屆大埔區學界辯論比賽,經過連場比賽後,我校中文辯論隊成功勇奪第一屆大埔區學界辯論比賽冠軍,這亦是我校中文辯論隊成立一年以來的第一個冠軍。同時,4B班梁美珊同學於初賽中獲得最佳辯論員獎,4E班林曼雲同學則於決賽中獲得了最佳辯論員獎。

中文辯論課程的同學和中文辯論學會的會員,亦有前往觀看賽事,既為中文辯論隊打氣,亦可汲取辯論經驗。觀賞緊張刺激的比賽,令同學獲益良多,以下是部分同學的觀後感。

辯論比賽後感

2A 范卓欣

  星期六那天看完辯論比賽,發現觀眾也可以吸收很多知識。另外,辯論選手也需要有良好的臨場反應,還有強勁有力的聲線和清晰的咬字。這也是我需要繼續努力學習的。

  我方選手準備的資料十分充足,而且界題也不片面,亦有利我方。比賽時,隊員們沉著應戰,自信冷靜。觀賞比賽後,令我明白到說話的語氣,充足的例子,有助增強論點的說服力。

  總括而言,看完這次比賽,令我明白到辯論比賽中每位選手都要有足夠的自信心,才可以流暢地闡述自己的立場,震懾對手。

2A 蕭曉汶

  十一月九日,我去了梁省德小學觀看一場頓精彩的辯論比賽,我校為正方。

  首先,我想簡短地講述一下參加辯論班的原因和對辯論的看法。起初,我認為辯論是一場富有針對,或攻擊性的口舌之爭。但因為一股莫名的吸引力,帶我走進訓練班當中。

  但今次的觀戰經歷,令我獲益不少。第一,預備一定要充足。我常常認為預備充足,遇到突發問題,也能應付得來。雖然這只是逢一必知的道理。我不知道雙方的預備時間有多少,但他們付出的努力是不能預計的。

  第二,自信。從踏進比賽場地那一刻,就必定要抱著自信與冷靜的心態,給人一個具自信的印象,是一種應有的風度。

  第三,語速。要調節好時間,因為時間有限。太快可能咬字不清,讓人摸不著頭腦;但太慢卻不夠時間述說觀點。當日的兩隊都做得不錯,能盡量運用時間。

  第四,應準確的針對題目,若果偏離了題目的意思,即使說話有多流暢,那只是徒然的。當天的兩隊搜集了很多資料,全部皆對己方有利,非常厲害。

  希望未來會有更多機會再觀戰,增加更多知識,得到更多的啟發!

3B 陳凱榆

  這次觀看辯論比賽後實在獲益良多,使我覺得辯論非常刺激。

  這次比賽後我發現自信是極為重要的,而我校的主辯及第一副辯都具備這條件,一出場便非常有霸氣,彷彿已預知會勝利般,這表現亦讓我對我校辯論隊取勝很有信心。

  看這這場比賽後我得知結辯應是最困難,最大壓力的角色。她們要摘錄好筆記,適當地總結全隊的觀點,亦要有力地反駁對手的觀點作完整的收結,這應該是一個很關鍵的角色。

3C 林凱欣

  十一月十九日,我們觀看了一場精采的辯論比賽。是次比賽的題目是「補習導師不應明星化」,我校為正方。

  這次比賽增加了我對辯論的認識和清楚明白開辯、副辯和結辯的運作。辯員緊扣辯題發揮,見解精確;立場鮮明,論點充足,論據充分。我校第二副辯曾提出一個比喻「糖果的味道不好,包裝如何精美華麗,也是於事無補」,意念新鮮,一針見血,緊扣題目。辯員以具體觀點和實際、大眾化的例子準確回應友方發言,妥善銜接話題,令我印象深刻。

  技巧方面,辯員時間分配得宜,用詞準確,詞彙豐富雅正。而且辯員發言清晰,聲量充足,字字鏗鏘。速度方面,辯員雖有點快,但停頓適當。眼神照應全場,手勢配合內容,態度得體有禮。

  這次的辯論比賽真的令我大開眼界。

2011大埔區十大傑出學生

分享     S.4E 黃雅婷

  我十分榮幸可以代表學校參加大埔區傑出學生選舉,並獲得初中組十大傑出學生。

  要成為一個傑出學生並不容易,雖說自己在校內的表現略為優秀,但要在區內眾多出色的學生中脫穎而出也有一定的難度。但只要相信自己,一定可以做得到。一個人最需要自信去實踐自己的目標。我在這事上學到了自信的重要性。

  暑假期間,我參加了大埔區傑出學生選舉。大家都是來自不同的學校,毫不認識;但大家為著共同的目標而奮鬥,我們變得融洽、熟稔、團結起來。是次訓練營讓我體會到團隊合作的重要。

  在此,我要感謝栽培我的父母,感謝一直勉勵我的老師,還有一直支持我的朋友和同學。

The Hong Kong Budding Scientists Award 2010-2011 (只提供英文版本)

中六級陳學謙同學將會在本年十一月參與劍橋國際日語考試,他是首批在新高中課程選修「其他語言」的學生。最近陳同學獲香港日本語教育研究會頒發獎學金,獎勵他在日語學習的優秀表現。在此祝願陳同學繼續爭取佳績。以下是陳同學學習日語經驗的分享。

  是次得到由香港日本語教育研究會頒發的獎學金,我感到十分榮幸。最初,我選擇學習日文有兩個原因。第一,我十分喜歡日本文化。日本有著各式各樣的祭典,例如:夏祭等,這些祭典大部分都與大自然有關。日本人將大自然視為神一樣尊重,我認為這點是值得學習的。第二,在日常生活中,日本生產或設計的產品無處不在,我希望能夠看懂產品上的日文說明。

  至今,我學習日文已有差不多兩年半的時間,我覺得學習日文的過程十分開心、有趣。雖然日文有大量單字及文法需要緊記,但是因為老師能耐心地教導,難的都變得容易了。我覺得日文班的課堂不但有趣,更能學到很多關於日本文化的知識,是十分有意義的課程,使我越讀越喜歡。

  最近,從老師得知北海道大學的獸醫學系是全亞洲第一的,對於將來想成為一位獸醫的我,這個消息令我更加努力去學習日文,希望將來能夠到北海道留學。

  除此之外,我還想更深入了解日本,所以我會繼續努力學習日文的。

Alexander Leung strikes GOLD in British Council writing competition

Leung Alexander Siu Kwun has won 1st Prize (Adventure, Suspense Category) and a place on a Creative Writing English Camp in Hong Kong in ‘Stories Alive’ Story-Writing Competition for Junior Secondary Students jointly organised by British Council & SCOLAR in July 2011. The prize-winners of the competition won a place on a Creative Writing English Summer Camp in Hong Kong run in early July 2011. They will have their stories published in a competition anthology and on posters that will be displayed in Hong Kong schools.

In his thrilling and imaginative story “Friendly Comrades”, Alexander tells us about the hair-raising adventure of a British soldier.

By S. 4E Leung Alexander Siu Kwun
Friendly Comrades

At the night of 15th November, 1917, a British Soldier-Andrew West, was lost in the western front—Gallipoli. He lost contact with his battalion. He was tired and cold. Then he saw a beam of light and heard some laughter coming from a place. They came from a few small houses in front of Andrew. He went to one of the houses and knocked on the door, hoping that it wouldn’t be the Germans.

Eventually, a solider opened the door-Luckily, a British solider as well. The solider welcomed Andrew to go in. There were about a thousand of them, sitting around camp fires. Andrew looked at one of the soldier’s shoulder; the words ‘39 battalion’ were printed on it. Surprisingly, the clothes were full of bullet holes. Andrew had dinner and talked with the soldiers of the 39 battalion. They were very polite, but they refused to tell their names, saying that that’s security matters. So Andrew changed helmets with them and gave them his cigarettes as a gift.

Next morning, Andrew got up early; he left a letter to the 39 battalions before he left.

After finding back his team. Andrew told his commander about it. Surprisingly, his commander looked shocked. He said, ‘the 39 battalion was long gone! They were wiped out to the last man in 1915. There were no survivors in the battalion.’ He took out a piece of paper. It showed that 39 battalion was wiped out in 1915.

Andrew West felt sick. He went back to the place where the 39 battalion were last night. Then, to his horror, he saw hundreds of skeletons scattering on the ground. They were killed by heavy machine guns.

Suddenly, Andrew fainted away. One of the skeletons was wearing Andrew’s helmet. On the skeleton’s hand, was Andrew’s letter.

'Stories Alive': English learning comes alive

The Summer Creative Writing English camp was a really meaningful camp. In the camp, I have met a good teacher. She gave us a lot of different advice to improve our English and our writing skills. Also, we learnt a lot about camera skills and script writing during the visit to The Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defence. The room was very nice too! It has the same quality of a hotel. I have made friends with a lot of other campers and they all came from different schools in different districts. It is fun to make friends with different people who have different backgrounds. One thing that amazed me in the camp is the English level of the other campers. They all speak very fluent English! After this fantastic experience, I decided to work harder in my English to catch up with them.

香港中學化學奧林匹克(2010–11) (只提供英文版本)

Our school has previously sent a team of five S.6 students to participate in the 16th Hong Kong Olympiad Chemistry for Secondary Schools. The result is encouraging. Their project entitled "The Investigation of God-given Talent of Chitosan" won the 2nd runner-up in the competition.


The theme of this competition is the Chemistry of Polymers.

Wong Shiu Chi Wins Debate(只提供英文版本)

Wong Shiu Chi Secondary School and CA Cheng Wing Gee College met in the second round of the 12th Nesta-SCMP Debating Competition. The motion was "that Hong Kong is taking care of mainland immigrants arriving here since 2006". Wong Shiu Chi took the affirmative side, and CA Cheng Wing Gee the negative.

The adjudicator, Mike Choi, the English Panel Chair of Kau Yan College gave the edge to Wong Shiu Chi because of their stronger arguments, better use of statistics and specific rebuttals. The affirmative team was credited with being very confident and clearly presenting their teamline.

The best speaker went to Esther Dai Kwan Pui (S6A), second speaker of the affirmative. She rebutted the arguments by the negative point by point and gave detailed evidence to support her views, which convinced and impressed the adjudicator so much.

The negative team gave a few very good, real-life examples against the motion. The first negative speaker was credited with explaining his points clearly and giving detailed evidence.

La Suisse plurielle-Switzerland and Migration Writing Contest(只提供英文版本)

Leung Lai Hei of 6A was awarded one of the five honorary mentions in the city-wide 2010 writing contest, "La Suisse plurielle-Switzerland and Migration" held in November. The contest was organized by the Consulate General of Switzerland and the Department of Asian and International Studies of the City University of Hong Kong.

Leung Lai Hei's essay is titled, "Migrants are not useless at all". She has shown her great understanding in the topic and her work was highly appreciated by the judging panel. The winners' essays including Leung Lai Hei's were displayed at the Exhibition Hall of the City University of Hong Kong from 17th to 20th December, 2010.

The following is her essay:

Migrants are not useless at all
  About a million years ago, human migration began. There are loads of motivations for individuals to make this decision, such as natural tragedies, wars, studies, work and so on. In a general sense, migration can be divided into two types, namely internal and overseas migration. I will focus on the discussion over the latter one, explaining how overseas migrants can enrich their host and home countries in the following paragraphs.
  To begin with, host countries usually reject immigrants because of economic concerns. Migrants tend to bring about unemployment to local workers since they are more willing to accept lower salaries or possess better skills. Employers, as it should be, hire those newcomers who can lower production costs for the company thus reducing the job opportunities for local job-seekers.
  In addition, social welfare is shared among more people. Take Hong Kong as an example: expectant mothers from mainland China come to Hong Kong to give birth, so as to give their children a Hong Kong identity and enjoy high-quality social facilities. Community expenses of the government, such as educational subsidies, public medical services, retirement funding etc, grow at a fast rate. Taxpayers refuse to pay for the immigrants subsequently, contributing to discrimination toward these new settlers.
  Host countries also fear that immigrants will dilute their unique cultural characteristics and therefore support the development of anti-multiculturalism. As a result, small societies are built to segregate immigrants and original residents, like the 'Chinatowns' in various foreign countries.
  At the same time, there is a serious outflow of well-trained domestic labour force in the immigrants' home countries, forcing them to import foreign workers. Other countries then suffer from the same problem as well. Hence, a vicious circle is created.
  As above mentioned, some people think that migration cannot contribute to the enrichment of their host and home countries. However, others, including me, do not agree.
  The report released by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in 2005 pointed out some misunderstandings of people toward migration. They linked migration with globalization and argues that relying on local workforce is not beneficial to the countries. In fact, migrations filled up two extreme types of job vacancies: dangerous jobs with low skills and well-paid jobs with high technical expertise. Therefore, it is not true to claim that migrants will dominate the labour market.
  As compared with their welfare benefits received, immigrants in England paid 4 billion US dollars in taxes more in 1999 and 2000. This piece of evidence illustrated migrants will enrich the countries economically, by paying higher taxes and remitting remunerations to their host and mother countries respectively. Moreover, these newcomers might bring along their capital, skills and purchasing power when they are moving to new environment. Their consumption is helping with the growth of local industries too. This further proves the presence of migrants can truly enhance the internal economy of the nations.
  Immigrants can also cure the existing aging problem in the societies which have low birth rates. Acceptance of migrants not only increases the working population and raises productivity of a country, but also increases the competitiveness of local employees, since they have to pay extra effort so as to maintain their status quo.
  A modernized country should respect different cultures. Cultural diversity in a society will broaden the citizens' horizons, allowing them to have a deeper look over other customs and traditions. New thoughts will be inspired by the introduction of foreign civilizations without destroying local culture.
  To summarize, I think migrants bring about more good than harm to the world so governments should implement measures to lend a hand to them instead of imposing numerous restrictions, as they are advantageous to the society. After all, we are all living in the global village and every villager should be equally treated, regardless of their identity.

第八屆校際香港歷史文化考察報告比賽

六七暴動是香港史上最嚴重的騷動事件,深深烙印在上一代香港人的腦海中。騷動期間,中、港間的食品貿易出現了突變,反映了當時中、港間一方面唇齒相依,另一方面卻又壁壘分明的微妙關係。中國對港生豬的出口數量的控制,甚而主宰了本港養豬業的興衰。本校四位高中級同學翻查了大量政府檔案及報章的微縮膠卷,且走訪新界的農場以訪問了六、七十年代的豬農和養豬聯會的副理事長,撰寫題為《一脈相連:從六七暴動期間的食物供應看中港的互動關係和香港養豬業的發展》的考察報告,參加由香港歷史博物館及香港中華文化促進中心合辦的「第八屆校際香港歷史文化考察報告比賽」,結果脫穎而出,勇奪高級組冠軍。玆列組員名單如后:
