Students were briefly introduced the background, usage, regulation and structure of drones. They were divided into groups of three and had hands-on practice.

Physical Education Department was glad to invite Hong Kong Cobras, an American Football Team in Hong Kong, to organize an experience day for the junior form students on 20th March 2023.
Apparently, American Football is not a major sport in Hong Kong and it was a good opportunity for students to learn a new skill aside from the PE lessons. Throughout the program, students were not only learning about the skills such as hand-eye coordination, passing accuracy and decision making, but also English since all the coaches are native speakers. In the program, all students performed actively. The coaches have chosen two best performed students to be the MVP and gifted them a team T-shirt as a present. It was a fantastic experience for students to learn about a new sport.
On April 13th, the junior form students participated in the "Lei Yue Mun Cultural Tour". Through visiting several landmarks, including Seafood Street, Wishing Tree, Tin Hau Temple and quarry, students learned about the development history of Lei Yue Mun. They even tried some local specialties. Throughout the activity, not only did the students gain a deeper understanding of their community, but they were also encouraged to have more confidence in speaking English.
