Honouring our God-given Potential
Our Graduation Day on 28 June 2014 marked the end of our secondary school life and yet the beginning of our new life-long venture. We felt so blessed to have groomed and nurtured in this loving family all these years and took pride to be one of the graduates of Holy Family Canossian College.
With God's grace and blessings, the Graduation Day brought us together to give thanks to our dear Teachers and Parents, who have been with us at different important stages of our life. Our warmest gratitude must go to our Guests, Teachers, Parents and schoolmates for celebrating this special occasion with us. In our thanksgiving prayer, we thanked God for the gifts He has given us and the love showered upon us. We were truly indebted to our dedicated teachers for their gracious loving care and guidance to us all. In the School Report, our Principal, Mrs Lucilla Yip, expressed her delight towards the well-rounded achievements of our schoolmates this year and encouraged us to continue to widen our horizons for self-enrichment.
The highlight of the ceremony was the presentation of certificates by our Guest of Honour, Ms Rita Chen, Senior Education Officer (SBM) of the Education Bureau. Ms Chen reminded us to uphold our positive attitude so as to sustain this life-long venture and make it always rewarding and interesting. We should also make good use of our God-given potential and life skills developed at school in our future career. What followed was the Prize-giving Ceremony and the prize winners' joy was shared by everyone present in the Ceremony.
All the guests then joined the audience to enjoy the performances by the Chinese Dance Team, the School Choir and the School Orchestra. The vibrant and joyful movements of the dancers as well as the fabulous song, Let there be peace of Earth, by the Choir and Orchestra members were heart-warming, bringing much happiness and peace to our Ceremony.
The day came to a close with the singing of the School Song. All of us treasured this very last chance to sing the School Song together in our pink uniforms, knowing that our warm relationship with our schoolmates, Teachers and Alma Mater will continue to prosper even upon our graduation. We promise to live up to the Holy Family Spirit and become contributive global citizens in the future.
