Dear Parents and Students,

When Christmas comes, people start to celebrate it by buying presents, sending postcards, preparing food or getting new clothes for Christmas parties. There are Christmas trees, lights and other decorations on the streets and in department stores which create a real Christmas atmosphere.

However, we must not forget the real meaning of Christmas: celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, our Lord. As the Bible says, ‘And so the Word became flesh and took a place among us for a time; and we saw his glory--such glory as is given to an only son by his father--saw it to be true and full of grace.’ (John 1:14). Christmas is the day on which Jesus was born over 2,000 years ago. His gifts of salvation have blessed billions of people.

Christmas is indeed a blessed time for all those who love Jesus, who acknowledge Him as Savior giving us peace and hope for eternal life. We are full of grace, praise and joy in welcoming Christmas. Let’s share our joy and love of our Lord in this meaningful season with not only our friends or family, but also those who are in need through donations or different means of support. Our Mid-term examination will be held right after the Christmas holiday, so don’t forget to spend time on revision.

Wishing you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Best regards,
Constance Cheung
