There was on 13 days for the school day in April. The rest of the days were for the Easter Holiday. Our students can enjoy this 13-days holiday with their family by doing some meaningful activities for relaxation. I wish that these activities should be good for your health in both physically and psychologically, for instance, doing some exercises, reading books and visiting museums or libraries. You will know more about your community through these activities. In fact, Tuen Mun is a district where is worth to walk leisurely around such as beaches, cycling park and so on. Our students can take this opportunity to explore the community with your parents. After, you can recommend some to me as I am a new citizen in this district.
An annual function called ‘Lung Kong Day’ was held on 4th April, 2019 this year in the secondary school campus. It was a joint-school function with a secondary, 2 primary schools and a kindergarten. All of us prepared a performance to show on that day. A Chinese Dance was performed by the secondary school, a ‘krump’ was performed by Wong Yiu Nam Primary School and Chu Sui Lan Anglo-Chinese Kindergarten performed a musical. Our school performed a choral speaking. All the performance were brilliant and they made all the audiences excited and fascinated. Nowadays, learning has not just happened in the classroom. Different kind of performances can provide different opportunities for students to show their potential and build up their confidence. I believe that this function can achieve this objective.
On 13th April, 2019, it was the parent-child picnic. It aims to let our parents and students put down their working or studying respectively, and go into the nature. Thank you all the teachers to join this picnic. The school wants to build a good relationship with parents through this activity. Parents could take this chance to know more about what the kids did at school. On that day, it was a good weather for picnicking. It did not rain throughout the whole activity with gentle breeze blowing all day long. There were over 300 people to join this picnic. The first spot was ‘Pineapple Park’. This farm mainly grew pineapples. The owner used the pineapples to make different by-products such as ice cream, juice and so on. Parents and students kept on buying as they really liked to eat pineapples. Students also had a chance to know how the pineapples are grown. They can learn being a farm to grow plants is not an easy job. In the afternoon, we all went to Lau Fau Shan to have a seafood lunch. All the people enjoyed the seafood. They had their lunch quickly as they wanted to spend sometimes to the market to buy some dried or preserved food. Of course, most of them could buy what they wanted and they were ‘Big Spender’. The last stop was the golf pit where was located in Tai Po. Most of the people did not know how to play it but they kept on practising. What a pity! We had only one hour for playing the golf. We did not want to leave but we had to. At last, all of us went back to school for dismissal. We were exhausted but this activity was fruitful and meaningful. We wish to hold the Parent-child picnic annually to promote the relationship between teachers and students. Also, the relationship between teachers and parents should be closer.
