United in God’s Family
On 1 September, Holy Familians gathered together for the Opening Ceremony. It was a simple, yet enlightening, occasion — one that was infused with God’s light and blessings.
With the school theme “Open Mind, Faithful Heart”, our Principal, Mrs Lucilla Yip, reminded us of the significance of collaboration and a reflective attitude in order to build a supportive and dynamic learning culture in school. Ms Angela So shared with us her insights on Chinese language learning, emphasizing the importance of hard work and constant reflection. In sharing about career planning, Ms Anita Chan discussed the relevance of career paths preparation and illuminated us with examples of our alumnae’s experiences and achievements.
Singing our school song in unison, our school year officially began. Holy Familians are once again united in God’s love in this amiable family!
Living in God’s Love
Holy Familians and teachers gathered for prayers and hymns in the Opening Mass on 11 September, celebrated by Fr John B. Kwan. Not only did it mark a fresh start to our school life, it was also a special occasion for us to reflect on ourselves.
In his homily, Fr John appealed to us to put ourselves in the right frame of mind in keeping our learning effective and our campus harmonious. Therefore, we should start every day with renewed hope, bearing in mind that a lot of people are in more adverse circumstances than us. He enlightened us to see God’s light in everything around us, increasing our faith in Him to live positively, vigorously and progressively.
The Opening Mass ended with the installation of student leaders. Permeated with warmth and spirit, they pledged to live up the school’s expectations of all Holy Familians.
