The school held a "bridging" programme from August 11-18 to help new students adapt to secondary school life.

Principal Lau Yiu-hung welcomed the new students, and told them it is important to remain positive. She encouraged everyone to pursue their dreams.

The students took part in workshops, classes and orientation activities. They had to work together in groups to complete the tasks - an important skill for them in the future.

"Some tasks are really difficult," said one student. "Luckily, we can help each other to work out the solutions most of the time."

To improve class spirit and students' self-esteem, an in-school day camp was also organised. A few ice-breaking games got everyone laughing. There was an orienteering activity which was fun and also allowed the students to really get to know their new school and surroundings.

There was also a chance for each class to work on a circle painting project. It required them to draw on a giant canvas, and the paintings were later displayed at a parents' day event.

And to top things off, the students' good work was recognised with prizes at a closing ceremony, where their "big sisters", teachers and parents, cheered on.
