Standard Chartered Arts in the Park is the largest outdoor youth art event and puppet parade in Hong Kong every year. It aims to help young people develop valuable skills through art and provide diversified art education activities. Since everybody has to maintain social distancing during the pandemic, communication is more important than before. Therefore, a series of "Art Fun at Home" activities was organized to provide young people with free art teaching kits. Our school also cooperated with this activity by applying for the relevant teaching kits, which were implemented in grades 4-6, including face-to-face courses and online real-time courses. We hope that our students will also be exposed to art while fighting the pandemic and can also maintain a positive well-being. Later, more students’ works will be collected and displayed on campus.
The "Reading for Integrity" Project is a brand-new project by the ICAC’s Moral Education for Youth Community Relations Department. It aims to help parents and teachers promote moral education through the production of picture books and a series of training and promotional activities.

Our school also applied for the relevant teaching materials and will use them in the primary 3 lessons. We hope that our students can continue to read more during the pandemic, cultivate good morals and maintain a positive attitude.
The picture books will be placed in the school library. Students can read them there, or read the e-books using the following links:

Congratulations to P3 MA ASHLEY for winning 2nd runner-up and P1 LI CHUN YAM ZAYDEN FELIC ABRAHAM for winning a merit award in the colouring competition organized by the North District Youth Festival 2020. The purpose of this competition is to encourage young people in the district to develop their artistic potential and creativity, and to arouse their interest in youth activities, so as to promote a caring spirit for one another. The school takes this opportunity to share this piece of good news with our students and parents, and hopes that each and every student will also participate in different types of activities or competitions to realize their potential.
Eight students from our school, namely MA ASHLEY (P.3), LAM TSUN FONG (P.4), LAM MAN SAI (P.4), CHAN SZE YU (P.4), CHEN TING TING (P.5), LI HAO (P.6), LI XIN (P.6) and WONG WING TUNG (P.6) participated in a painting exhibition organized by Sunrise Arts Association. Each participating student received a Certificate of Merit from the organizer and two copies of the souvenir programme. However, due to the pandemic, the organizer had no choice but to cancel the exhibition, so the school is going to display the works on the school website for everyone to enjoy.
