Connected Communities Week 2022

Connected Communities Week took place this year from Monday, 5th December to Friday, 9th December. Throughout the week, a series of exciting challenges took place to enable students the opportunity to connect with residents of the Sha Tin community.

Co-organised by the Connected Communities Committee and the Creative Arts, Culture and Social Action Student Council Committees, students were involved in a plethora of activities.

From writing postcards to express their gratitude and appreciation regarding our shared past with the Sha Tin Community to participate in a highly anticipated Instagram photo-taking experience and water pong, which challenged students to throw ping pong balls into water cups, students were engaged throughout the week with focused conversations about the school’s relationships with our former neighbours in Sha Tin.

The Connected Communities Committee (CCC) have been busy preparing for the upcoming Open Day event on the 9th of December!

Tiffany Teh (12E), Head of the Website Design and Management Sub-Committee, said, “We are aiming to reach further out into the Sha Tin community and showcase our events through the work of our website. So stay tuned for more events to come!”

“We will establish longer-term goals and visions to strengthen our bonds with the Sha Tin community. We hope you are excited about the event on Friday and our projects in the future!” added Angus Leung (12N), Head of the Strategic Initiatives Sub-Committee.

“There was even a whole school assembly on Monday, 5th December, where we announced our goals and other projects for the near future. We received positive feedback from the students and a lot of support from them! It is very meaningful to show gratitude to the people who have helped us in the past, as it is now our turn to repay them,” stated Sabrina Cheung (10W), member of the Human Resources, Publicity & Outreach Sub-Committee.
