In order to enhance the reading atmosphere in school, the library prepares a series of themed activities every two months. The theme of October and November in 2019 is 'Chinese History and Culture'. In the second month, the library and the Chinese Culture Club co-organized an activity called 'Chinese Fan Making'. Students enjoyed drawing and decorating the Chinese fans with their friends and showed their creativity and artistic talent.
The school picnic (F.2) was scheduled on November 1 this year. All Form 2 students went to Butterfly Beach Park on that day. Surrounded by the beautiful beach and trees, the barbecue site is a fantastic spot for students to enjoy the nature. The picnic provides a chance for both students and teachers to relax and spend time to chat with each other.

Besides, they used ions solutions to make chemical cells. Our students were very excited to see the bulbs lit up.
A visit which was held by History Club to The Mills was successfully held on 31st October. The Mills provided a brilliant guided tour for our members. The tour guide took us to look around the place with vivid descriptions of the history of the building.

The first term book fair was organized by the school library on 13 November. We aimed at cultivating reading habits among students and establishing reading atmosphere at school. Different kinds of books were displayed, such as fictions, novels and a biography etc. Students could enjoy and read the books that they like. The book fair was a great success since many students came and participated in the event.
The annual English Department Halloween party is one of the most popular events on the school calendar. This year's event fell on Tuesday, November 5. The school hall was transformed and students enjoyed a lunch recess of fun-filled spookiness! A group of ghosts, spirits, witches and dinosaurs walked in the school hall instead of students. The spooky atmosphere however didn't scare away the fun. Creative costumes, music, games, and - of course - the candy guessing game was the highlight of the event.
