Ms LEUNG Ka-man had this to say: “Master Pooja is a well-experienced yoga teacher. She could easily attract teenagers’ attention and arouse their interest in doing different postures. In class, she helped students do different postures and asked them to practice them at home as well. She let students know the fact that one’s effort would finally pay. She highlighted to students, “No pain, no gain.” Her strong passion and enthusiasm in yoga inspired our students. She told students that the nature of yoga was “to stay positive, happy, healthy, and also to respect each other.”
Continuing with the arts, let’s see what happened with a special film viewing…
S3 Film Appreciation
By LEUNG Ka-man, Carmen
Movies are a great way to touch the human heart. Why not guide students to reflect about their lives and teach them how to face problems positively using films?
After reading the pre-show handout, all S3 students watched the film “Searching”. As the film was compelling, with a very powerful narrative, all students watched it attentively in the hall. After the film, students were asked to write down their feedback on a post-it about the film. The feedback was posted on a display board for all to see. This meaningful and approachable activity was well embraced by the students and put on display in the school lobby.
Films are a worldwide favourite, so how can we top that? With fun and games using English!
English Fun Day
On the English Fun Day, eight booths were operated by students. S1 to S4 students participated in the games about positive energy. Additionally, some of the English ambassadors were trained to host the song dedication sessions. With music in the air, they enjoyed the activities and brought home the gift of positive thinking. Let’s listen to what an event helper, 6H Kwan Man Ho, Homan, had to say:
“These days, we live in a world in which pandemics and air pollution rage on. Under this never-ending pandemic, vitality in the cities has been long gone. In other words, I personally find people less positive nowadays. Thus, I really appreciate the opportunity for me to be a part of this English Fun Day. To begin with, it is crucial to understand the theme this year is more about positivity, strength and sayings of wisdom. So when I got to join those activities, I was able to perceive the message behind, and kind of found sort of an answer or resolution to my doubts. And I was able to take that answer, and turn it into something positive.
