41st Speech Day

S.K.H. Lui Ming Choi Secondary School
41st Speech Day
The forty-first Speech Day of S.K.H. Lui Ming Choi Secondary School was successfully held on 6th July, 2018 at the school hall, with the presence of The Most Revd Dr. Paul Kwong, Archbishop & Primate of Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui. Other prominent guests included members of the Incorporated Management Committee and Representatives of the 159th Hong Kong Scout Group.
After the procession of the official party into the school hall, the ceremony began. The Reverend Christine Ho, the School Chaplain led us in an opening prayer, followed by the speech of welcome delivered by the Supervisor and Chair of the Incorporated Management Committee, Dr. Jane Lee Ching Yee. The annual school report was then delivered by our Principal, Dr. Alice Cheung Shuk Yee, with the comment that our distinguished students and graduates excelled in academic, music, art and other categories. She reported on the work of the school year 2017-2018 and the 3-year school development plan. The 3 major concerns of the school development plan (represented by the 3Es – Excel, Engage and Enlighten) showed our school’s effort in building up our students towards excellence, engaging them in different learning experiences and enlightening them for different kinds of exposures. Some highlights on the changes and growth in these 3 years included 52 lesson studies conducted by teachers to help stretch students’ academic potential to reach excellence, a new set of language across the curriculum learning materials developed to enhance English learning in different subjects, such as Liberal Studies and Integrated Science; and a STEM curriculum aimed at raising students’ interest in learning and nurturing their talents in the field of science and technology. Students were awarded excellent results in different competitions. Moreover, the new junior reading curriculum had run for 3 years. Students thought the curriculum could widen their horizons and enrich their knowledge. The Principal believed that engaging students in different learning experiences will motivate them towards setting their goals in life. The S-Café project, supported and founded by the Lam Foundation, was one of the examples. 3 groups of students were formed to take turns to run the café under the mentorship of the trainers. Every cup they made was freshly prepared with passion and dedication. Another highlight was over 300 students were engaged in pull-out programs in the past 3 years to explore their potential. Study tours to Taiwan, Shanghai and Paris were arranged for them to learn beyond textbooks, while local excursions focused on the life of different cultures. On top of it, there was a lot of interdisciplinary collaboration between subject departments and companies to enrich students’ learning experiences. The Geography department and Chinese History department arranged a tour for participants to understand development in Shenzhen. All these could help students’ whole-person development. Other students took part in community service such as singing at HK International Airport and running a stall in the Lunar New Year Flower Fair in Causeway Bay. Life-planning and career education also expanded rapidly in the past 3 years. Many visits were arranged for students to expose themselves to different job types and helped them cultivate positive values and attitudes. At last, the principal hoped all graduates would have an open mind, readiness to make changes and willingness to grow. All the parties could work together to reach the goal of ‘being inquisitive, enterprising and competent’.
Afterwards, The Most Revd Dr. Paul Kwong, the Guest of Honour, gave us an inspiring speech. He quoted a bible chapter – Proverbs 3:3 “Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart’. He pointed out that education is not only the process of facilitating learning or the acquisition of knowledge and skills, but also building values and beliefs. He continued to say that the first attribute, love, is almighty. God created us out of love and so we could love Him back. Love can drive us to achieve what we want in life. Then, he said that faithfulness was another attribute we should possess as it was the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. God is faithful and we are called to be faithful. Finally, he congratulated all F.6 graduates on embracing life with love and faithfulness, earning many more achievements in life ahead to contribute to the society.
Speech Day reached its climax with the presentation of certificates, scholarships and prizes in academic and extra-curricular activities to both graduates and distinguished students. The vote of thanks was then delivered by our F.6 graduate, Lam Shing Lok, Benison. The day was further embellished by the impressive performance at our school choir. The singing of the school hymn marked the end of the ceremony.
It was an evening filled with reflections and joy for the graduates as they reunited with their teachers, classmates and friends.
