Shung Tak Catholic English College - 22nd OSC is coming!12 Dec
Operation Santa Claus – here we go again! For over 22 years, Shung Tak Catholic English College has been up and ready to show support to OSC, and this year, we will be going out on a bang on December 12, as the students, teachers and parents come together for a charitable event, hoping to raise even more funds than the previous years.
Charity events are not only about raising money, as we believe, “Every opportunity is an opportunity to learn”. Students learn to delegate and communicate, organise and specialise and above all learn the school motto of “giving is more important than receiving”. Giving comes in the form of money, of course, but in also time, effort, care and patience.
As usual, the open playground will be transformed into a bazzar with food stalls here and there, with teachers, students from different forms and parents involved in selling, promoting, making, dancing, singing or contributing in same way to charity. There will also be teachers singing Christmas carols and our Senior Singing Contest Finals is always our highlight of the day.
12th December, all Shungtakians can wait for this fun and meaningful day to come!
