ROSARYHILL SCHOOL
MAIN ACTIVITIES FOR THE 55TH AN
NIVERSARY
The theme or logo of the anniversary will be:
“Lightening the Way, Opening new
Paths”, a theme where we try to express
the search for our Dominican identity, very
much based on Jesus himself who said “I
am the Way”, and looking forward to the new
challenges that we will face and encourage
us to find new educational “paths”.
The main events programmed are:
7 October 2013 (Monday): Opening of the
55th Anniversary with a Mass and the
Opening Ceremony, and with the Golden
Jubilee Scholarship Giving Day. This date
coincides with the feast of Our Lady of the Rosa
ry, Patroness of our school.
15-16 March 2014 (Saturday and Sunday):
Open Day and Music Gala
23 March 2014 (Sunday): Gala Dinner for scho
ol staff, parents and alumni.
24 May 2014 (Saturday): Closing of the Anni
versary and Thanksgiving Ceremony,
coinciding with the Feast of Saint Dominic.
These are the main events programmed at
the moment. Some other events will be
arranged and we will inform you as they come
.
We look forward to the support of all of you
and your participation.
The 55th Anniversary Executive Committee
FR. LIONEL XAVIER CHAR
ITY FUND
Please be informed that the Cha
rity Fund established after the dea
th of Fr. Lionel
Xavier has already been officially
approved by the Inland Revenue,
with
all
the necessary
permits to make it an official “cha
rity fund”. Six directors are in cha
rge
of
the Fund: the
Procurator of Dominican Mission
s, the Supervisor of Rosaryhill Sch
ool
and
of St. Paul’s
school in Macau, the OSA chairpe
rson, and two alumni, Ms. Edith
Shi
h
and
Mr. Edward
Ng. The first official meeting took
place last Friday, 26 April, where
a
few
dec
isions were
made, an important one was to
dedicate this year, even without
hav
ing
any
yiel
d coming
from the initial capital, HK$100,000
for the different charities of the Fun
d.
In
the future we
will use the product from the fund
, that at present is HK$1,900,00
0
app
roxi
mat
ely, for the
charities.
The objectives of the fund will be:
the promotion and formation of Dom
inican priests
and helping students, of both sch
ools, with financial needs. Each yea
r
the
per
son in charge
of each charity will prepare a plan
that will be presented and approve
d
by
the board of
directors before we make use of
the fund. The allocation of the mon
ey
will
be
40% for the
Dominican priestly vocations and
30% for needy students of each
sch
ool.
We are hopeful that past students
will be aware of the fund and will
try to keep it alive,
serving the needs of the vocations
and of our students for many yea
rs to come.

ROSARYHILL SCHOOL
OPEN DAY cum H
The Open Day was held on 17 th March
this year and the theme was based on four Spanish
speaking countries within Latin America, namely Argentina,
Chile, Ecuador and Mexico.
There were a total of 40 booths, which mainly focused on
introducing the Four-Spanish countries’ food, national costumes and
flags. Some booths exhibited merchandise from the four countries.
The Kindergarten, Primary and Secondary Sections also had their own
academic exhibitions in different areas.
Many agreed the activities and booths were fun and interesting.
They also helped to establish better links and understanding
between Chinese and Non-Chinese students which enabled them
to learn about mutual respect, tolerance of different races and
broad international perspectives.

ROSARYHILL KINDERGARTEN & PRIMARY SECTION
PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE
In a report in Sing Tao Daily, Ms. Cheung Ming
Lai, Child and Educational Psychologist, pointed out
that the number of children not being able to take
care of themselves is increasing. They are given the
name “Kong Hai”, which means Hong Kong kids.
Many parents place huge emphasis on children’s
knowledge acquisition, giving low priority to life skills
training such as doing housework. Coupled with the
popularity of helpers at home, many children and
their parents nowadays no longer consider helping
with housework as part of children’s responsibilities,
which was indeed a social norm in the past.
The purpose of education is to give our children an opportunity to develop their full potential,
and to help them become effective learners at school, responsible family members at home and
eventually respectable individuals contributing to the society. Especial emphasis is placed on
building character and civic awareness. Moral education is always considered as the first among
the five aspects of education, namely morality, intellectuality, physique, socialization and aesthetics.
We all agree that a successful school should excel in cultivating moral character in students.
School education plays only a partial role in children’s development, who are also profoundly
influenced by their parents. It is not only what we parents say that our children hear and pick up; it
is also how we behave, act and interact with others, and how we perceive and project ourselves in
daily lives that our children witness, feel and acquire. Children learn from parents, imitating parents’
words and actions as well as parents’ personality, temperament, attitude and values. Children are
a mirror of their parents. Hence, consistency in words and deeds is crucial. In other words, rolemodeling is more effective than teaching merely by verbal instructions. In the “Three Moves of
Mencius’ Mother”, the mother strived to find the best learning environment for her son. As parents
we all want our children to be successful. We ourselves as a role model, plus good learning
environment at home and at school are the key to success.
Many great people have been raised in strict families. One-child family, which is becoming more
common, invites parents to be indulgent and more lenient with their children. Something positive
in this new family setting is that parents are more responsive to their children’s needs and wishes,
leaving at the same time more space for children to express themselves, although it can evolve
undesirably into overly self-centred children in the absence of proper guidance Self-centredness
is considered as a hindrance to children’s effective learning and social development, and possibly
their future survival in the society.
Quality home and school education has profound significance to an individual and to the
whole society. Home and school need to work closely together to deliver excellence in education.
Parents and teachers should coordinate their efforts, should interact and communicate more, and
should listen to each other more often on matters related to children under their joint-attention. In
our understanding about life, there seems a continuity that things start at home are then followedup by the school and finally the accomplishments are welcomed by the society; where our children
will manifest all the good work that we together, parents and school, have invested in making our
children successful and conscientious citizens. Let us work hard together to make our children
“conscientious individuals, useful citizens and authentic Christians” according to the mission
statement of our school, on the contrary to the “Kong Hai” mentioned above.

HOT POT AND BBQ ACTIVITIES
Enjoy fun science experiments
for kids that feature awesome handson projects and activities that help
bring the exciting world of science to
life. Parents may not consider Hot Pot
as one of these science projects but
indeed it is! For the little ones, PreNursery and Nursery classes are
having hot pot in school. They brought
in lots of food and observed the whole
process of food cooking, how the food
got prepared, changed and cooked.
For Lower and Upper classes, they had
a new experience this year of having
barbecue up above the mountain with
parent volunteers. How fun it is to enjoy
the food with the beautiful nature.

K2 VISIT TO MARYKNOLL HOUSE
(13th December, 2012 to 14th December, 2012)
In order to foster children’s understanding of the birth of
baby Jesus, our PTA had organized a school visit for lower
class children to Maryknoll House.
Our understanding of the birth of Jesus was usually formed
by the traditional Christmas story. Students had the chance to
see many different mangers from countries around the world
in Maryknoll House. It is such a great place here where we
celebrate Jesus’s birth, listen to the
Bible story and sang song for Jesus.
We felt so close to Jesus here and
students had great joy in such
peaceful and silent place.
K3 VISIT LIONS NATURE EDUCATION CENTRE
(6th January, 2013)
Upper Class students went to visit
Lions Nature Education Centre on 6th
January 2013. Students had the chance
to take pictures with their own camera so
that they could share the photos with their
parents and family after the visit. The
centre consists of five exhibition
halls (Insectarium, Geopark
Visitor Centre, Butterfly valley,
Fisheries Hall, Shell House)
and some outdoor featured
zones. Students also had
great joy having picnic with
their classmates. Teachers
and students had a great
time exploring the nature
during this trip.

the morning, we had a peaceful mass
in the chapel. Father delivered the spirit

important celebration for Chinese people
each year. This year, our school had Chinese
Culture day on 6th February 2013. On that day we
provided special Chinese foods and activities for
the students. Each student made a word “Fu” for
decoration and wrote and decorated “Hui Chun”.
“Fu” and “Hui Chun” symbolized good luck, good
fortune, good health and longevity. This activity
gave the students an opportunity to create
their own art work.

CHINESE FLOWER MARKET
This year the Economics and BAFS Department from the
Secondary Section again provided the New Senior Secondary
(NSS) Four students with an authentic business experience
by making them responsible for the operation of a stall at the
Chinese Flower Market. It was a 2-day event which was held
on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1.
The business students went through the process of
writing business proposals, setting up their own companies,
purchasing stocks, and setting up stalls. Most of them made
a profit with half of the money donated to worthwhile charities.
The whole function was educational and successful and well
supported by everyone in the school.
“BEOWULF” BY ENGLISH DRAMA CLUB
Members of the Rosaryhill English Drama Club have been busily rehearsing the old English
play Beowulf with Ms. Doris Yu, a tutor from the highly regarded drama group, the Seals
Players. The rehearsals will culminate in two public performances. One of these
will be at Rosaryhill School on the forthcoming Speech Day on May 25.
The other will be on the 14th July at the Tuen Mun Civic Centre.

MATHEMATICS QUIZ
SECONDARY SECTION
Every year, we hold Mathematics Quiz for each from level.
There are three categories of questions, including Mathematics IQ
questions, “Sudoku” (數獨) and “Seven Piece Tangram” (七巧板).
This year, there were a total
of 476 students participating in
this event.
Those students found
it challenging, rewarding
and interesting.
RADIO BROADCAST ON THE RTHK
Stories of two women in power - “When Empress Dowager Cixi meets Queen
Victoria”. This interesting radio broadcast on the RTHK is the creative work of our
students (Team A).
Plato said “Those who tell the stories change society.” Storytelling could be
your secret to success as it is a very powerful communication tool. History is a
kind of story telling. To make our students avid students with strong creativity and
communicative skills, we have formed 5 Teams to participate in the programme
“History & Culture Class - We tell history stories” co-organized by the Hong Kong
Chinese Culture Development Association and the RTHK. Before the actual radio
broadcasting, our students had attended three story-telling training sessions held by
famous personalities in Hong Kong like Alfred Cheung and Francis Mak.

performance, please click the following
