This year, to encourage students to appreciate the importance of thankfulness, the English Department treated Junior form students to an informative, yet entertaining session by officers from the Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Consulate on Thanksgiving Day, 21 November 2012.

Through the session, students learnt the origin and significance of Thanksgiving, and came to understand that Thanksgiving is perhaps one of the best gifts America has given to the world – a model for other countries to follow, where citizens set aside a day in the year to gather family and close friends to celebrate and give thanks for the many blessings in their lives. The session was not complete without games and treats - students enthusiastically participated in quizzes and games, and were treated to candies. The session culminated in a traditional Thanksgiving activity in which students shared about things/people they are thankful for in their lives.

True to the intention of the session, the students walked away with the essence of Thanksgiving in their hearts – gratitude and happiness.

為了鼓勵同學重視感恩的美德,英文科於十一月二十一日,邀請了美國領事館駐香港的美國新聞文化處的大使蒞臨本校,向初中同學介紹感恩節。活動內容既富資訊性而又有趣,讓同學從活動中認識到感恩節的起源和重要性。

感恩節起源於美國。人們為了慶祝感恩節,會放下平日繁囂的工作,抽一天時間與家人和朋友相聚和慶祝。同時,人們會藉著感恩節來表達他們對生活的感恩之情。

在當天的活動中,同學積極參與問答環節和遊戲,而所有參與的同學都獲得糖果以作鼓勵。活動的最後環節,同學更有機會實踐向他們身邊的人或事傳達謝意,甚富意義。
