At Ho Yu, we have been implementing Life Education, an important element of promoting caring school culture, over many years. Equipped with the positive and appropriate attitudes, students know how to tackle any challenges following the right direction. This year, we are overjoyed to receive an ‘Honorary School’ award of the ‘Life Education’ category under Caring School Award Scheme which is organized by Hong Kong Christian Service.
We will certainly continue to cultivate students’ generic skills and enhancing positive attitudes including resilience and maintain caring school culture.
Six of our Primary 6 students took part in Mini Olympics 2019 held by the Hong Kong Playground Association. After attending 4 sessions of training, our team competed in the Soft Tip Darts event. We won three games in the first round and successfully entered the finals. Excitement rose to its height after our team won the first game and the opponents won the second. In the final game, we lost a few shots at the beginning, but with perseverance, Sze Pak Him got a bullseye and turned defeat into victory. Our team won the Champion of Soft Tip Darts Competition and Pak Him also won the ‘Bullseye’ award.
Our school took part in the first “Hi-Five Student Engagement Award Scheme" conducted by Baptist Oi Kwan Social Service – Mental Wellness Service for Children and Youth jointly with the Education Bureau and the Hong Kong University of Education. The scheme aims at promoting and encouraging schools to cultivate a positive school culture in order to enhance students' sense of belonging in school. Its aim also concerns understanding students’ emotional, social and academic difficulties. We have been presented a special award for our effort in meeting the needs of diverse learners and giving them the opportunity to showcase their talents.
With the theme, Runaway Gingerbread man, we specially designed this booth game for the 2019 World Book Day Fest. This event is organized by scholar and EDB. The Fest aims at nurturing students' reading interest and helping them develop a reading habit.
With the help of our professional team of AV engineers, we designed a booth game with the setting of the story of the Gingerbread Man. The tasks include the deployment of the players’ reading skill, logical thinking and athletic ability. A mini moral lesson is provided to each of the players at the end of the stall game.
Our game stall was the most popular one in the event. There was always a long queue at our booth! Players enjoyed our game and we received tons of positive comments on our message board! Thanks to our student helpers and teachers and all our hard work paid.
