Knit With Love 2022/2023
Date: December 17, 2022 (Saturday) Time: 2-4pm Venue: GS Room, DBSPD
The 2021/22 school year was similar to the previous year, yet with more school days of being physically back on campus for our boys, although still half-day with a period of time of online learning when the 5th wave of COVID swept over Hong Kong. Many of our PTA events were still on hold and the major events for Primary Division such as Open House and Speech Day were cancelled. Nevertheless, we were lucky to be able to have our School Fete back in November 2021, welcoming many happy and excited faces at our PTA and Game Stalls after having paused for two years.
We continued our community service events in the past year with knitting to kick things off, followed by Box of Hope packing to bring cheer to those in need. The knitted scarves were delivered to the elderly before Chinese New Year and we also tried the “calling senior” program for the first time; given visits to the elderly were difficult to carry out during COVID, making phone calls to them on a regular basis was such a nice project for benefitting both the elderly and our boys.
Green Uniform and textbook matching projects were done in the latter half of the school year, and we would like to continue to explore more opportunities and ideas around environmentally-friendly projects in the coming year.
G6 Graduation Ceremony was held smoothly and successfully in July at our school’s Auditorium, evolving into a new tradition for bidding farewell to our G6 boys and sending them up the hill to start a new chapter. Our last event for closing the school year was actually a big welcome for the new Grade One parents on their orientation, introducing a set of school themed stationary goodies, and with an online sharing by past Grade One and Two parents by class to help new parents adapt to the school.
As the COVID situation continues to develop while we continue to adapt and cope, it seems that we might be able to carry out more activities and events in the new school year. We are excited that our boys are returning to full day school from 2023 and look forward to our Open House, Speech Day and many more that will be re-launching after two years.
Heading into my third year in PTA, I’m taking the baton from Mr. Joseph Wan, our former Chairperson to lead the PTA. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Wan for his leadership in uniting us to function and connect in various areas our school and the parents over the past three years.
We could not have achieved all of the above without your support and we would like to express our gratitude to you and especially to those who have given their extra time in assisting us for many things. We also would like to thank our Headteacher Ms. Lo and Headmaster Mr. Cheng for providing guidance and support along the way. Thank you and may God bless us all.
