Dear Parents and Students,

The “5-day Family Tour To Beijing” organized by the PTA ran from 27/3 to 31/3. A total of 33 students and relatives visited scenic spots such as the Great Wall, the National Museum, the Tiananmen Tower, the Forbidden City Museum and the Summer Palace. We were also honoured to be able to visit the Tsinghua University with professors and students from Hong Kong for a cultural exchange. Some of our students are considering study at Tsinghua University, so this exchange trip made them set goals and work harder. Afterwards, we went to a renowned secondary school affiliated to Tsinghua University to have a PE lesson. Our girls were impressed by how seriously the local students took their physical education class. They made Ipad videos of each other to help improve their performance. Our girls learned that we must pay attention to every detail in life and understand that "the job is done" does not mean "the job is well done".

At Pooi To we have always felt that the graduation ceremony, as the last important gift given by the school to the graduates, requires careful selection of its guest speaker. We hope that the speaker can inspire our graduates and share his/her life philosophy, so as to encourage and enlighten our graduates for their future. This is also an unforgettable moment for our graduates to have an honorable guest bestow their diplomas.

This year, we are honored to have Prof. Tsui Lap-chee as the guest speaker at our graduation ceremony which will be rescheduled to Thursday, May 24th at 6 p.m. Professor Tsui is currently the President of the Academy of Sciences of Hong Kong and was President of the University of Hong Kong from 2002 to 2014. We are happy that our guest of honour support our graduates in the midst of his busy schedule.

Best regards,
Constance Cheung
