The International Chemistry Quiz 2021, run by the Royal Australian Chemical Institute, was held on 5th July 2021. Our school got excellent results in the quiz with seven senior form students getting distinctions, six getting high distinctions and two getting excellence awards. The quiz aims to promote chemistry in school and enhance students’ enthusiasm for learning chemistry. Consisting of 30 multiple questions, the chemistry quiz was based on a non-specific syllabus and required students to complete the task within one hour. Through participating in the quiz, students can be more proficient in chemistry knowledge.
In November 2021, the School Guidance Committee worked with Rainbow Lutheran Centre to hold an anti-drug sharing for our S3 students. Former drug addicts were invited to share their experiences and the harms of drug abuse, in the hope of increasing students’ awareness of the issue.
Our S3 students were then asked to design postage stamps themed “Marijuana is a Drug” in their Visual Arts class for a competition organized by Rainbow Lutheran Centre. 3A Lam Hiu Ting and 3B Chow Cheuk Kwan were in the top 40 finalists. Chow Cheuk Kwan’s artwork was even voted as one of the most popular designs on Facebook, winning a merit award. With the overwhelming response in postage stamps designed by our students, our school also received the Most Active Participation Award.

Four Secondary 6 students, 6B Chan Yuk Lam and Tsang Wai Laam, and 6D Huang Xin Rui Joey and Ng Hoi Yan, participated in 22nd Consumer Culture Study Award Programme organised by the Consumer Council. Competing with 59 secondary schools, they managed to win the Outstanding Design Award and the Best Practice Mode Award in the Sustainable Creative Design Division.
