‘Glory to the Newborn King with the Great Joy in the World’ was the theme of the Christmas Liturgy and Celebration.
This year, the Liturgy began with a meaningful drama by the Catholic Society, which conveyed a message of appreciating little things around. Originally the protagonist believed that Christmas was simply a time for shopping and having fun. However, later she realized that this festival was much more than that – life became more fruitful when she spread God’s love to other people by helping the needy.
The Students’ Association also celebrated the festival with us with a drama revolving around three special agents. The Handbell Team, Junior Choir and a dance group ‘Dance for 1999’ performed in the drama. All schoolmates enjoyed their performances and appreciated their efforts put into preparing such wonderful performances. After that, we had the Christmas lucky draw, followed by the finale session – our teachers and SA Exco members singing Christmas carols. The hall program ended with laughter and joy.
Surprises were at the covered playground as the Rope Skipping Team were there performing for us. The SA Exco members were also there distributing popcorn and marshmallow. Meanwhile, some were taking pictures in front of a wishing board and festive decorations in the basketball court.
We also celebrated Christmas with our classmates and teachers in classrooms with delicious food and playful games, which made the last school day in 2016 a joyful and memorable one.
May our good Lord help us always bear in mind the importance of being appreciative and helping the needy, and grant the whole school a prosperous 2017.
