Dear Parents and Students,
The implementation of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) in junior forms started last year. The conversion of the previous MMLC into a STEM room was completed last December. Our STEM teachers started with “blocky” programming for S1 students and assembling robot cars for S2 students. We provide all of the necessary parts, tools and instructions so that our girls are able to assemble the components using mobile apps on hexagonal desks to complete the task, learning to be cooperative, innovative and creative.
We experience creativity in Pooi To, not only through STEM learning, but also through our aesthetics programmes. During the Easter holidays, over two hundred students prepared their performances for Arts in Action on 5th May which is our annual student showcase. With the support of teachers, instructors and alumni, students concentrated on their rehearsals and took advice from teachers for improvement. Their positive attitude, perseverance and determination are appreciated.
Near the end of the DSE, I would like to share good news from our S.6 students who participated in the “SBA Learning Outcomes Awards 2016/17” organized by CityU. Gaby Chui came First in History while Evangeline Chow came Third in Visual Arts and Daisy Lau performed with Merit in History. Besides, S.1 Kimi Liu, Coco Lau and S.2 Alice Yip , Rain Chung students got Bronze Award in HK Mathematics Creative Problem Solving Competition for Secondary Schools.
Last but not least, I would like to congratulate our Drama Club members who competed in the Hong Kong School Drama Festival 2016/17. Facing keen competition, the girls showed an incredible sense of passion and commitment to perform at their best. They won 5 awards in the competition including an Award for Commendable Overall Performance, an Award for Outstanding Cooperation, an Award for Outstanding Director, an Award for Outstanding Performer and an Award for Outstanding Script. Well done and keep up the good work !
