Community Engagement <br />

As a school community, we seek to raise consciousness of our social responsibility to the wider communities<br />

that we’re an integral part of. Our students are encouraged to consider themselves as full members of their<br />

local, national and global communities. Membership of these communities carries rights and responsibilities,<br />

and our students graduate from CKY with a keen awareness of their sense of duty towards their broader<br />

community. We cultivate active citizenship and Community Engagement among our students. We aspire for<br />

students to be not only aware and knowledgeable of the social ills and challenges confronted by our<br />

neighbours locally, nationally and globally. Far from shaping a generation of armchair spectators, our<br />

emphasis on well-rounded character development engenders a spirit of active community service among<br />

students who are compassionate and engaged in tackling some of the problems facing society. <br />

This <strong>edition</strong> of the CKY Newsletter pays tribute to some of the many ways in which our students are making a<br />

positive wider impact outside of our school community. Our students benefit from various opportunities to<br />

actively learn about environmental sustainability and how they can help in practical ways to reduce their<br />

carbon footprint. Competitions, field trips and guest speaker sessions bring these key issues to life and leave<br />

a lasting impression on our students’ personal values.<br />

With many of our wonderfully supportive parent volunteers

Wishing you good health, peace and happiness in the Year of the Tiger!<br />

With two of our former students at an<br />

alumni sharing<br />

Our students’ are engaged in volunteering work through<br />

community service, while preparing and delivering Boxes of Joy<br />

to neighbours in our community who are less privileged, as well<br />

as CAS experiences where our IB students are of active service<br />

to local NGOs and charities. By engaging in service to their<br />

wider local communities, our students become reflective and<br />

active citizens who understand their place in society and their<br />

duty towards building a better world. <br />

As usual, this <strong>edition</strong> of the CKY Newsletter is packed<br />

with news and updates across our Primary and Secondary<br />

sections, which reflect a thriving school community full of life,<br />

vigour and vibrancy. Despite the latest move to full-day online<br />

learning that we are now all too accustomed to, our wide array of<br />

extra-curricular activities, some of which are featured in this<br />

<strong>edition</strong>, highlight our school’s enduring vision to realise the<br />

unique potential of every child by providing a joyful education<br />

that is rich in opportunity, variety and care. As always, we are<br />

ever thankful to our devoted parents and teachers for their<br />

tireless support and close cooperation in achieving our<br />

educational mission. <br />

We wish you and your family an abundance of good health, joy<br />

and prosperity in the Chinese New Year of the Tiger!<br />

It’s funny how we throw around<br />

big words such as “climate action”<br />

and “waste reduction” like it’s<br />

nothing. Most of us in the CKY<br />

community are educated and<br />

aware of the environmental crisis<br />

in Hong Kong, but we are too<br />

preoccupied with exams and<br />

school to be mindful of how we<br />

actively worsen the issue. It is not<br />

an eccentric, un-cool thing to<br />

connect with nature. Rather, it is<br />

problematic that we pay so little<br />

attention to our surroundings.<br />

With this in mind, our CAS project<br />

group chose environmental<br />

conservation as our area of<br />

engagement during challenge<br />

week. To appreciate what others<br />

have done to improve our<br />

environment, we paid a visit to<br />

Wetland Park and Kadoorie Farm,<br />

where we participated in native<br />

tree conservation and learnt about<br />

wetland wildlife. Although many of<br />

us have visited these places early<br />

in our childhoods, we seemed to<br />

YEAR 12<br />

forget about them and their<br />

significance as we grew up: which<br />

is why it was a much-needed<br />

reminder of what we will lose if we<br />

do not take responsibility for our<br />

surroundings.<br />

Then we decided to contribute our<br />

efforts to resolve this issue, by<br />

engaging in trail cleaning at Lion<br />

Rock with the Conservancy<br />

Association, and beach cleaning<br />

at Lung Kwu Tan and Lung Ha<br />

Wan. The conditions of those<br />

locations were simply shocking:<br />

we even began calling Lung Ha<br />

Wan “styrofoam beach” from the<br />

styrofoam particles blanketed<br />

across the sand. At Lung Kwu Tan<br />

we picked up around 20 large<br />

sacks of rope, fishing line, bottle<br />

caps, cigarettes and plastic<br />

straws, although the beach looked<br />

spotless from a distance (except<br />

for the suspiciously black sand,<br />

which turned out to be from<br />

pollution). This begs the question,<br />

why does nature have to shoulder<br />


the consequences of our actions?<br />

A lot of the rubbish we saw on the<br />

trails were discarded there<br />

deliberately (toilet paper balls on<br />

trees, bags of leftover soft drinks<br />

etc.), so why didn’t our community<br />

take the extra small step to place<br />

their litter into a trash can? It was<br />

something that we couldn’t make<br />

sense of.<br />

At the end of the week, we met up<br />

with Ecodrive, an organisation that<br />

taught us the importance of<br />

reducing the consumption of<br />

plastics, an approach to reducing<br />

waste that is far more efficient<br />

than recycling. Drinking one less<br />

cup of boba tea per week could<br />

mean reducing up to 5 pieces of<br />

non-biodegradable plastics. And if<br />

every citizen in Hong Kong made<br />

an effort to order 1 less drink…<br />

which is why we believe climate<br />

and environmental action is a<br />

community effort, but always<br />

starts with the individual.<br />

YEAR 11<br />

今 年 , 我 們 學 校 的 CAS( 創 意 、 活 動 和 服 務 ) 挑 戰 週 , 我 們 組 的 服 務 對 象 主 要 是 流 浪 的 貓 和 狗 。 我 們 希 望 透<br />

過 這 ⼀ 個 星 期 更 深 ⼊ 地 了 解 流 浪 貓 狗 的 現 狀 , 以 及 如 何 去 幫 助 他 們 。 我 們 的 計 畫 是 分 別 探 訪 兩 間 機 構 ,HKSCDA<br />

(⾹ 港 拯 救 貓 狗 協 會 ) 以 及 HKSFF, 在 過 程 之 中 我 們 會 照 顧 貓 狗 的 起 居 飲 ⻝, 整 理 他 們 的 居 住 環 境 , 甚 ⾄ 會 與 他 們<br />

進 ⾏ 互 動 , 與 貓 狗 玩 耍 和 散 步 。<br />

⼀ 開 始 , 我 的 ⼼ 情 ⼗ 分 忐 忑 。⼀⽅⾯ 我 從 來 沒 接 觸 過 流 浪 貓 狗 , 不 太 清 楚 他 們 與 寵 物 貓 狗 的 區 別 ; 另 ⼀⽅⾯ 是<br />

我 鮮 少 照 顧 貓 狗 的 ⽇ 常 ⽣ 活 , 擔 ⼼ 在 過 程 中 出 現 任 何 的 差 錯 。 在 與 流 浪 貓 狗 的 相 處 之 後 , 我 發 覺 他 們 和 普 通 寵 物 貓<br />

狗 其 實 沒 有 什 麼 差 別 , 差 別 是 在 於 流 浪 貓 狗 的 ⾃ 我 保 護 意 識 很 ⾼, 在 ⾯ 對 陌 ⽣⼈ 的 時 候 更 有 侵 略 性 。 也 許 是 因 為 牠<br />

們 或 多 或 少 曾 經 被 主 ⼈ 棄 養 , 對 ⼈ 類 產 ⽣ 了 警 覺 和 提 防 。<br />

有 ⼀ 次 , 我 嘗 試 幫 ⼀ 隻 流 浪 貓 清 理 籠 ⼦ 時 , 當 我 打 開 籠 ⾨ 時 牠 ⽴ 刻 攻 擊 我 , 甚 ⾄ 露 出 ⾃⼰ 的 獠 ⽛,⾯ 露 兇 氣 ,<br />

當 下 我 嚇 得 不 輕 , 頓 時 懷 疑 ⾃⼰ 是 否 哪 個 步 驟 做 錯 了 。 事 後 , 我 ⽴ 刻 去 找 了 貓 舍 負 責 ⼈, 她 說 明 這 隻 貓 因 為 最 近 才<br />

剛 被 主 ⼈ 遺 棄 在 街 頭 ,⼀ 時 之 間 接 受 不 了 被 遺 棄 的 事 實 , 所 以 「 來 者 皆 拒 」。 當 下 , 我 才 了 解 原 來 是 這 麼 ⼀ 回 事 。<br />

不 僅 於 此 , 令 我 印 象 最 深 刻 的 地 ⽅,⽽ 當 我 和 貓 舍 負 責 ⼈ 回 去 打 算 清 理 ⼩ 貓 的 籠 ⼦ 時 ,⼩ 貓 卻 ⾃⼰ 站 在 籠 ⼦ 的 上<br />

⽅, 倚 靠 著 窗 邊 , 望 向 窗 外 。 負 責 ⼈ 說 :「 牠 應 該 是 在 想 念 曾 擁 有 過 的 家 吧 , 仍 舊 以 為 主 ⼈ 會 帶 牠 回 家 。」 那 ⼀<br />

刻 , 我 才 深 刻 地 體 會 到 : 流 浪 動 物 其 實 都 和 我 們 ⼀ 樣 , 渴 望 被 愛 , 希 望 得 到 他 ⼈ 的 關 懷 , 追 求 著 ⼀ 個 屬 於 ⾃⼰ 的<br />

家 。 傷 ⼼, 憤 怒 , 思 念 ⋯⋯ 這 些 都 是 牠 們 也 擁 有 的 情 緒 , 難 道 就 因 為 牠 們 是 貓 或 狗 就 失 去 被 愛 的 權 利 ?<br />

這 次 的 CAS 體 驗 , 帶 來 給 我 最 ⼤ 的 啟 發 是 「 以 ⽣ 命 影 響 ⽣ 命 」, 與 流 浪 貓 狗 相 處 的 經 歷 , 給 予 了 我 ⼀ 個 反 思 ⾃<br />

⼰ 的 契 機 , 也 使 我 了 每 個 ⼈ 都 應 承 擔 起 責 任 。 正 是 這 些 毫 無 責 任 ⼼ 的 主 ⼈, 才 將 寵 物 託 付 予 的 信 任 付 諸 於 流 ⽔。 在<br />

同 情 和 幫 助 流 浪 動 物 的 同 時 , 我 希 望 更 多 ⼈ 能 明 ⽩ 養 寵 物 的 責 任 , 養 育 寵 物 跟 養 育 孩 ⼦ 都 是 ⼀ 樣 的 ,⼤ 家 應 該 尊 重<br />

每 ⼀ 個 獨 ⽴ 的 ⽣ 命 。<br />

Every year at Christmas .me, our senior secondary students deliver ‘Boxes of Joy’ to people at Po Leung Kuk<br />

organisa.ons around Hong Kong, including elder residents in elderly care homes, and ins.tu.ons which support<br />

people who are disabled. These Boxes contain essen.al goods kindly donated by parents of our younger junior and<br />

primary students. They bring joy to those who open them, and allow our students to create smiles and happy<br />

<br />

memories while playing, singing and dancing with our neighbours in the community.<br />

In December, the school teachers told us that there is an ac.vity<br />

called, “Box of Joy.” We were given a list of things to buy. I was<br />

preMy excited because you buy the things for people in need. I<br />

went to Wellcome to buy the items. There were so many things<br />

to buy on the list, including oil, biscuits, and drinks. I bought<br />

them all! I had some trouble finding every item. AQer finding<br />

them, I went to the counter and paid. I was thrilled because I<br />

could help many people in need, and I think that I was very kind<br />

and helpful. I even bought things for my mum, me, and my<br />

family! What a lovely, wonderful, and happy day.<br />

In December, Box Of Joy<br />

was held. The Y8's had to<br />

prepare 2 packs of chips for<br />

the Y9's were going to visit.<br />

Guilty pleasure snacks are a<br />

good way to make the kids<br />

feel excited and get the<br />

Christmas Spirit going on<br />

during the holiday season.<br />

We also helped by moving<br />

all the Box Of Joy presents<br />

from the primary section,<br />

particularly the Y3's and<br />

Y4's. During recess in<br />

December, our head of year,<br />

Ms Wacky Chen, instructed<br />

us to move all Y3-4's Box<br />

of Joy to the conference<br />

room, and so it was. Many<br />

of us went around to gather<br />

all the presents; after that,<br />

we carried them all to the<br />

conference room. That's<br />

when we saw a mountain of<br />

gifts piling on one another<br />

in the conference room.<br />

There were so many gifts<br />

that there was only a small<br />

path to walk in and go out!<br />

It felt great to know that we<br />

Y8s were able to put in a<br />

real effort. Hopefully, it<br />

made the younger kids’<br />

Christmas a bit more joyful.<br />

Clean Waterways Education<br />

On 14th December 2021, two IB students were invited to participate in the Clean Waterways Education Programme, a<br />

workshop conducted by Plastic Free Seas, a Hong Kong based environmental charity, to learn more about ocean pollution,<br />

how our waste enters our local waters and what we can do to help reduce the environmental impact.<br />

During the two hour workshop, students were given the opportunity to test water samples collected in the harbour to<br />

gauge the water quality. They also experimented with microscopes to identify a variety of microscopic marine life which<br />

occasionally revealed tiny fibres and other microplastic pollutants that ended up in our waters. At the end of the workshop,<br />

they were also introduced to Hong Kong's first solar-panelled rubbish collecting "boat", a newly innovative Hong Kong<br />

design which was sponsored by HSBC to build.<br />

HK Green Tech Competition & Zero Carbon Building<br />

When Mr Wong introduced the “Hong Kong Green<br />

Technology Creation Competition” to us in STEM, I looked at my<br />

friend and said, “This is our competition” as it requires us to use<br />

Minecraft to build a green urban city. <br />

Parents have always criticised that video games are<br />

bad for their children's grades and encourage laziness. Even<br />

though that may be the case, video games have helped children<br />

through many mental and physical difficulties. For me personally,<br />

Minecraft was one of the best things that happened to me in my<br />

life. It promotes creativity, and honestly, lots of cooperation. This<br />

competition is about working together to build an eco-friendly<br />

community in Minecraft. It gets people to think about how to use<br />

space and money efficiently since you can only create it within<br />

81x81 blocks of space while sticking to the budget. The ideas<br />

also need to be creative, original and physically attractive—on top<br />

of that, the buildings need to have a purpose, which should be<br />

linked back to the theme—being green.<br />

I joined this competition because I thought this was an<br />

exciting and fantastic opportunity for me to learn as a make-shift<br />

engineer, how to plan the layout of an eco-friendly area to build<br />

an eco-friendly site within a budget. To help us with our ideas, Ms<br />

Chung took us on a field trip to Hong Kong’s Zero-Carbon<br />

Building. I saw how a simple design could save thousands of<br />

dollars in construction and drastically reduce greenhouse gas<br />

emissions. It also gave us lots of ideas for our final construction of<br />

buildings in Minecraft as we learnt new technology such as an<br />

eco-plant and other ways to maximise the intake of solar energy.<br />

This field trip changed many of my original ideas but it helped me<br />

to start thinking about being environmentally friendly a lot more. I<br />

can't wait to see what my friends and I can build!<br />

Year 9 Community Service Trip<br />

On 17th December 2021, the Y9s went to Po Leung<br />

Kuk Gold and Silver Exchange Society Pershing Tsang<br />

School in Causeway Bay, to offer our service to<br />

primary school students there through a mini carnival.<br />

The students in the school consisted mainly of<br />

orphans, children from ethnic minority backgrounds,<br />

and kids who lack parental support.<br />

As a year level, we designed, organized and hosted 20<br />

game booths to create a happy and memorable<br />

experience for them. This day of service was chaotic,<br />

but rewarding and fun. Students of lower year levels<br />

were energetic, and communicating with them was<br />

difficult due to language barriers and their lack of<br />

patience. It was also very crowded within the venue,<br />

due to the endless flow of students playing and<br />

queueing in contrast to the schools’ relatively small<br />

rooms.<br />

Despite these challenges, our service<br />

was immensely meaningful. Not only<br />

were we able to physically bring<br />

company and joy to the primary<br />

students amidst the depressing<br />

pandemic, but we also learnt that not<br />

all children are as privileged as us.<br />

As upper secondary students, we<br />

should learn to treasure what we have<br />

and continue to contribute back to the<br />

community.<br />

Y2-Y5 Guest speaker on climate change<br />

I feel very grateful for the guest speaker. He shared a large amount of information about the<br />

weather and how poor less privileged people live in subdivided rooms. The sad fact was many of<br />

those poor people died of cold weather. He also taught me that we should not waste natural<br />

materials such as paper and water. I want to hear more about the weather which proves<br />

fascinating to me and how the world has changed or is changing. Other information I would like to<br />

hear more is surrounding difficulties poor people face when living in subdivided rooms. I’m sure<br />

those are invaluable experiences which I will not see often in cities such as Hong Kong. One day I<br />

would like to travel to those places to see for myself what really happens in real life. Places<br />

without a computer, phones, internet and how to cook meals in cold weather or keep them hot. I<br />

am very grateful to have a better condition in Hong Kong where I can have a hot meal everyday, a<br />

soft bed and warm sheets to cover when I go to sleep. I feel blessed and thankful. The speaker<br />

has spoken very well and I thank him for it.<br />

Archie Chan 3B<br />

During our assembly, we had a wonderful, special guest speaker who<br />

visited our school. This special guest is Mr. Leung Wing Mo. Mr. Leung<br />

Wing Mo is a climate spokesman for “350 Hong Kong”, a spokesman<br />

for the Hong Kong Meteorological Society and he used to work for<br />

HKO. He talked about disastrous weathers, like flooding, droughts,<br />

typhoons and more. He also talked about what was causing them, like<br />

air condiBoners, hot baths, and other luxuries, which cause global<br />

warming from the carbon dioxide. Rich people would o?en buy coats<br />

made of animal fur, and because of the high demand for this fur,<br />

countries overbred them. Many of these animals ended up catching a<br />

disease, leaving the only choice, kill all the thousands of animals. I<br />

enjoyed this talk as it informed me about how we create this mess of<br />

affecBng so many people without knowing it, and many ways to stop<br />

it. I hope in the future, this will be just a thing of the past!<br />

Mr. Leung taught us that we<br />

should protect the Earth by saving<br />

water and electricity. I also learnt<br />

that many accidents may happen<br />

on very cold days. For example,<br />

driving in the snow may easily<br />

cause car accidents. A?er<br />

listening to Mr. Leung’s speech, I<br />

learnt a lot about Earth’s natural<br />

environment and found it<br />

interesBng.<br />

Appreciating Mr Leung for his time in giving our students an inspiring talk<br />

On 12th January, 2022, we were honored to have a guest speaker<br />

joining our assembly, Professor Leung Wing Mo, ex-Assistant<br />

Director of Hong Kong Observatory to share with us on Extreme<br />

Weather. It was indeed a great pleasure to have learnt the changes<br />

of weather in Hong Kong and around the globe from an<br />

experienced climatologist like Professor Leung.<br />

It worried me when I found out from Professor Leung that we, in<br />

Hong Kong, are having more and more extreme hot days in a year<br />

while the number of normal and cold days are declining year by<br />

year. All this is due to climate change which is a long-term change<br />

in the average weather conditions on Earth. The rise in the average<br />

temperature near Earth’s surface affects more than just polar bears<br />

but all life on Earth!<br />

I ask myself what can I do to save Planet Earth? I can start by<br />

reducing the use of fossil fuel energy, for example, by taking less<br />

cars and public transport but walking and cycling as much as I can.<br />

Through which I can reduce the use of gas and the amount of<br />

carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Maybe I can even start a Plant a<br />

Tree Campaign in my school or community to raise the general<br />

public’s awareness of global warming.<br />

I hope very soon, polar bears can enjoy their homes again in the<br />

frozen Arctic region while I can always have a cold little Christmas<br />

year after year.<br />

Do you remember the typhoon Mangkhut from 2018? It was so<br />

strong that at least 458 people were injured during the strike of this<br />

treacherous typhoon! This is extreme weather! To learn more about<br />

this, our school invited the former assistant director of the Hong<br />

Kong Observatory, Mr. Leung Wing Mo, to explain more about<br />

extreme weather to us. Many of us would have heard about him<br />

from his TV programme called ‘MObservatory’.<br />

Mr. Leung was a very wise and funny person, in which I saw that<br />

many students enjoyed his presentation and were proactively<br />

answering his questions. Throughout his presentation, he shared to<br />

us about many riveting events about extreme weather that happened<br />

in Hong Kong. For example, there was a certain day in Hong Kong<br />

that its temperature fell down to 3.1 celsius. Some people that were<br />

hiking in Tai Mo Shan fell down due to the slippery ice on the floor.<br />

There was also a line graph he showed about the rising temperature<br />

in Hong Kong, which was a cause of global warming. This led to<br />

something he said that I find extremely influential and inspiring,<br />

“There are many poor families in the world, some couldn’t even<br />

afford an air-conditioner, while some children in the Philippines lost<br />

their parents due to some environmental problems, so we should<br />

treasure what you have now and protect the environment. You all<br />

are very lucky in Hong Kong, such a good place with pleasant<br />

weather.”<br />

It is an honour to meet Mr. Leung Wing Mo, a big thanks to him for<br />

bringing such a meaningful message with loads of information that<br />

blew our minds!<br />

Year 1 students learned about Elements of Art-line, shape, colour and pattern, along with Susan Forbrigger, a<br />

contemporary artist. They learned about her love of animals and transformed lines into patterns, then drew their<br />

invented patterns and designs inside their animal of choice. They also played with colour and used warm, cool<br />

and various mixed color combinations to create a bright and colourful background with tissue paper. These bold<br />

animals reflect the students’ creativity and their careful observation drawing of animals, patterns and arrangement<br />

of lines.<br />

My Big Elephant<br />

I chose to draw an elephant<br />

because it’s my favourite animal.<br />

Elephants live in nature and nature<br />

has a lot of trees and leaves that<br />

are green, so that is why I chose<br />

green for my background. If we<br />

don’t take care of elephants they<br />

will be ex>nct.<br />

Hermione’s Oil<br />

Whales live in all oceans in the world. I want people<br />

not to throw plas>c bags or plas>c bo6les in the<br />

ocean. If you throw rubbish in the ocean, fish will<br />

eat it and then the seals will eat the fish and then<br />

the whales will eat the seals. They will eat the<br />

plas>c too! If they eat the plas>c they will become<br />

ex>nct. <br />

I chose warm colours to have the sun shining down<br />

in the ocean. It’s kind of relaxing, don’t you think?<br />

Students learnt about how Keith Haring promoted activism through his art by using simple<br />

imagery. They also investigated how he utilised in-between lines to create movement,<br />

pattern, and balance between all the imagery. This whole year level collaboration celebrates<br />

CKY school life. It will be completed during this second term.<br />

The process of making the Keith Haring inspired mural was<br />

extremely enjoyable, especially being able to work on such a<br />

huge project with every single student in year 8. I am proud of<br />

how the artwork incorporates different elements of our school<br />

life, like the houses, sports day and monkeys, celebraBng the<br />

uniqueness of our school.<br />

Bernice Lee 8F<br />

Our class was in charge of the piece with the school emblem,<br />

featuring monkeys. I had a great Bme planning and drawing<br />

hidden meanings in the artwork with my classmates!<br />

For our school’s 20th anniversary, Year 8 produced a mural based on the style of Keith Haring, showcasing what<br />

school life is like to us. The mural was mulBple sheets of art paper, with lines and figures created by the year level<br />

and outlined with black markers, aligned to create a cohesive art piece. We write on behalf of class 8A when we<br />

say that this experience was extremely enlightening due to the opportunity to craN a composiBon relaBng to<br />

Recently, I took part in a STEM competition at<br />

the Hong Kong Science Park: the City I&T Grand<br />

Challenge. I entered with my team, a group of<br />

friends I met at The Hong Kong Academy for<br />

Gifted Education (HKAGE). In this competition,<br />

we had to invent and present a solution to the<br />

theme of environmental sustainability. After<br />

extensive research and field surveys, our solution,<br />

Ecovender, came in 3rd place in the secondary<br />

category. We also won the Gifted Star Award of<br />

the HKAGE. We were overjoyed, of course, but<br />

in the end, we all agreed on one thing: that what<br />

we had enjoyed the most in this journey was not<br />

winning the award, but rather the experience of<br />

working together in a team.<br />

Our team consisted of 5 people: Albin, Benjamin, Jane, Ivy and me. We all came from different schools. We had<br />

different skill sets, different timetables, and different working habits. Working together was quite challenging at<br />

first - we had to find times to meet when all of us were available. Often, we had no choice but to meet at 9 pm<br />

or later online! Because of the limited time we had together, we soon became accustomed to working efficiently.<br />

Workloads were divided up according to our strengths so that we could finish our parts independently. For<br />

example, if we had to make a prototype of our product, Benjamin and Albin, who were the STEM experts in our<br />

team, would use online programmes to create it, and Jane, Ivy and I would help give suggestions and help<br />

organise our verbal presentation of the prototype. Lastly, we would meet up to finalise the result. This, for all of<br />

us, was the most satisfying part. There is nothing more wonderful than seeing your work being put together, and<br />

becoming a part of a fully fledged solution.<br />

When we won, we felt an overwhelming sense of pride: in our accomplishment, in our hard work, but most of<br />

all, in our team. We could not have won without any of our members. All of us were integral in some way to our<br />

achievement. We had learned one important concept through this competition, however cliche: Teamwork truly<br />

makes the dream work.<br />

Inter-School A.I. Formula Edge Competition<br />

The Inter-school AI formula Edge competition is a car racing competition where students form teams<br />

to build cars that can find the path by themselves through the use of artificial intelligence. A<br />

computer (Jetson Nano, created by Nvidia) was installed on the car, while students implement and<br />

train the AI program so that the car recognizes the track. The competition is categorised into two<br />

levels, including Jetbot (Beginner) and Jetracer (Advanced). The competition took place from 10th to<br />

12th December 2021.<br />

Awards) received:<br />

Overall 2nd Runner Up for JetRacer Division<br />

This is the first time that we participated in an AIrelated<br />

competition. Only one member of the team<br />

Seton has racing car-related experiences prior to the<br />

contest. We decided to join the competition as<br />

Bowen and Ethan took part in a Computer Science<br />

summer course which involved concepts of AI<br />

training, where we thought that this competition is an<br />

opportunity for us to apply the knowledge learnt in<br />

the course.<br />

We spent multiple club and after-school sessions to<br />

prepare for this competition. During weekends, we<br />

also booked function rooms to work on building the<br />

car and attended fun-days organised by STEMPLUS<br />

to train the car so that we can work out the best<br />

algorithm to control the throttle of the car and seek<br />

room for improvement of the car’s mechanics<br />

components.<br />

This competition is a rewarding experience that<br />

strengthened our understanding of AI. Through<br />

engaging in the process of training the AI model, by<br />

taking photos of the track, we got to understand how<br />

AI models are trained and improved. A stronger<br />

understanding of racing car mechanics is developed<br />

throughout the competition.<br />

Engineering is about problem-solving, and we often<br />

face failure as the software programs we write do not<br />

always work and the hardware components are not<br />

adjusted correctly at times. Albert Einstein once said,<br />

“It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with<br />

problems longer”. If we give up when the hardware<br />

or software is not working, it is impossible to obtain<br />

the end product that we have now. We always try to<br />

“debug” our problems and find solutions to solve<br />

them so that the system works. Therefore, we<br />

believe that perseverance is a huge factor that led to<br />

our success.<br />

We would also like to thank Mr Wong and Mr Go for<br />

their supervision. They had spent extra time working<br />

with us and attending both the fun-days and the<br />

competition, which was held during weekends. Mr<br />

Go even used his personal equipment to enhance<br />

performance for our racing car. We would not have<br />

been able to make it this far without all their support!<br />

To us, the most valuable takeaway from the<br />

competition is “perseverance skills”, which is of<br />

utmost importance in the context of engineering.<br />

Best JetBot Design Award (Bronze)<br />

The AI Formula Edge competition was our first competition involving both<br />

hardware and software elements, hence we met several challenges.<br />

However, we managed to persevere through the numerous difficulties. The<br />

exhilaration we felt when the car finally managed to function for the first time<br />

was ultimately unforgettable.<br />

<br />

In terms of hardware, soldering jumper cables on our JetBot was quite<br />

challenging, as we had little to no experience in soldering. The process of<br />

holding a scorching tool to melt solder wires was rather stressful, but we<br />

practised the skill repeatedly, and eventually succeeded in firmly securing the<br />

jumper cables.<br />

We also encountered challenges in terms of software, where we did not have<br />

a specific strategy for photo-taking. We captured excessive photos for curved<br />

roads, and hence the car sometimes travelled in figure-8s despite being<br />

located on a straight lane. As there was minimal time to retake photos, our car<br />

did not always take the most efficient route during the qualifiers.<br />

In spite of the problems faced, this competition was incredibly beneficial to us,<br />

and was generally enjoyable. First, the competition gave us an opportunity to<br />

learn more about artificial intelligence and machine learning. The workshops<br />

before the competition taught us more about the fundamental concept of AI,<br />

while the final competition gave us an opportunity to apply our AI knowledge<br />

during the hands-on operations of coding and building hardware.<br />

Moreover, unlike other STEM competitions that we had participated in before,<br />

the AI Formula Edge competition required several months of preparation<br />

work. Through this lengthy journey, we developed our skills in communication,<br />

collaboration, and working together as a team.<br />

Furthermore, during the day of the competition, multiple technical difficulties<br />

inevitably appeared. For example, the competition organiser’s WiFi router<br />

malfunctioned, hence we had to use an alternative method to connect to the<br />

server. We realised the importance of staying calm when technical issues<br />

occurred, and eventually built up our problem-solving skills and resilience.<br />

As we will likely join the competition again next year, we have thought of ways<br />

to improve our overall performance. First, we would generate ideas to help<br />

our JetBot take the inner route of the track. This would optimise the time it<br />

takes for it to travel two rounds and would be beneficial to our performance in<br />

the competition. Additionally, we would spend more time gathering early<br />

preferences for the optimal speed gain, steering gain, steering kd and<br />

steering bias before the competition. This would minimise the time we would<br />

need to spend on finding it during the limited time slots and will give us more<br />

time to solve technical difficulties that spawn on the day.<br />

Our journey was full of ups and downs! We were<br />

close, but just missed the bronze! Although we did<br />

not make the top 3, we still learned a lot during the<br />

three days in Asia expo. We learned to make<br />

decisions as a team and work on problems<br />

together to reach our goal. AI is unstable and can<br />

leave you disappointed, but to accomplish a good<br />

score, we must accept our mistakes in order to<br />

achieve a good AI model to run on its own without<br />

anything going wrong. We named our robots<br />

“Romeo” and “Juliet”.<br />

The CKY Physics department was very excited to co-organise and host the first-ever Hong Kong Young<br />

Physicists' Tournament (HKYPT) today after a year of planning with Singapore International School. This<br />

was a competition based on the rules and problems set by the international committees (IYPT) that took<br />

place on 20th December 2021.<br />

Each team chose one out of the selected 17 problems, investigated experimentally and presented the<br />

findings with physics concepts. The opposing team would then take the floor to discuss follow-up<br />

questions with the reporting team. It was a very unique competition format that offered opportunities for<br />

presenting formal scientific research to the secondary school students. <br />

This year we ran it as a pilot and hopefully we could expand it to a larger scale next year. It was our<br />

honor to have Dr. Tong Shui Sing from CUHK, Dr. David Yu from HKU and Dr. Bill Yeung from EdUHK as<br />

our jury team. They were particularly impressed by the team who analysed the problem of 'three-sided<br />

dice' with dynamic modeling and phase space concepts.<br />

The problem our team worked on was to optimize the parameters for a maximum torque of a<br />

paper spiral, when placed over a flame. <br />

The phenomenon occurs due to convection. The flame heats up the air and produces a<br />

convection current, so the hot air rising hits the inclined surface of the surface spiral,<br />

transferring momentum to the spiral and causing it to rotate. <br />

The challenges our group faced were mostly involved in the execution of the experiment. Due<br />

to the many different prototypes, we had to make two sets of apparatus to maximize the<br />

efficiency - however, the apparatus had to be set with the same parameters so that it would be<br />

a fair test, which was quite challenging. We also had to test out different candle types for strong<br />

convection current without any fire hazards, and many of our spirals burnt and could not be<br />

used afterward. We had to be very careful when using fire, so we kept a sand bucket next to<br />

the paper spiral at all times, in case it caught fire!<br />

Time was also a constraint in this experiment, as we find that the precision of our results could<br />

have been improved if we had completed more trials. We would also have been able to perform<br />

more experiments to test other independent variables, so we could have reached a more<br />

rounded and certain conclusion. <br />

Overall, we are really thankful for this fruitful opportunity and are beyond honored to be able to<br />

come in second place.<br />

At first this topic of investigating the twisting of a water stream, which looks like a chain, usually<br />

seen when pouring water, seemed challenging. We did not really have a direction and just tested<br />

different nozzles made by 3D printing to try to spot a pattern. Unfortunately, that was not really<br />

useful and we just kept struggling. We found out that the difficulty was in the lack of literature we<br />

have on the topic. This means we had to come up with our own theory. This allowed us to be creative<br />

and think of many different possibilities with our physics knowledge as a foundation.<br />

Throughout the process of the competition, the judges gave a lot of constructive comments that are<br />

helpful to future research based projects, such as IB extended essays. Teams from the other school<br />

also provided another perspective to understand and solve the topic, which is also valuable as<br />

different perspectives on the topic increases our understanding of the solution.<br />

Improvements we could have made for a better result could have been searching deeper into the<br />

question and testing for different areas of the topic where our report could be more comprehensive.<br />

We could have used more calculations to quantify our results which could justify our theory more<br />

clearly, making our report more persuasive.<br />

Overall, we are very grateful to have this opportunity to participate in this competition and we<br />

enjoyed making progress in researching and competing with other teams. We learnt communication<br />

skills as well as how to have civilised discussions and debates with other teams. The judges also<br />

provided us with insight on areas we can extend to.<br />

「 嗡 嗡 」 的 聲 音 。 可 是 , 一 被 驚 醒 那 股 聲 音 卻 消 失 得 無 影 無 蹤 了 。 正 自 驚<br />

Winter Olympic 2022 Press Conference<br />

On the 4 th January, I represented our CKY Ice Hockey Team to take<br />

part in the Winter Olympic 2022 Press Conference held by TVB.<br />

There were 6 ice hockey players aged from 9 to 16 years old from<br />

respective schools. I was the youngest one but was not the shortest!<br />

I was really excited because I did not know what a press conference<br />

was and was so happy to be able to represent CKY Ice Hockey<br />

Team.<br />

There were many media and journalists with a lot of cameras. It was<br />

really hard to see us smiling when we were wearing masks, so our<br />

eyes needed to look happy. We only had 5 minutes to rehearse for<br />

our section which made me a bit nervous. When the conference<br />

started, the MC introduced us and we marched to the stage. I was the<br />

first one to present the ice hockey pose and then the team<br />

accompanied the chairpersons to kick off the conference. The MC<br />

and guests introduced the Winter Olympics, which will be held in<br />

Beijing from 4 th Feb to 20 th Feb 2022. I also learnt the sports to be<br />

played in the Winter Olympics such as Ice Hockey, Figure Skating,<br />

Bobsleigh, Ski Jumping, Snowboarding and Speed skating, etc. One<br />

of the HK athletes, Sidney Chu who will be representing HK to join<br />

the Speedskating in the Winter Olympics, gave a speech on his<br />

training program and on how he prepares for the competition. A few<br />

guests also gave a speech about the site of the Beijing Olympics and<br />

an introduction of the sports to be played.<br />

<br />

After taking the group photos, we were treated to a very delicious<br />

snack - skewers, mini-cakes & sandwiches which made a perfect<br />

ending of the Press Conference. That day was really cool and I was<br />

so happy to see myself on the TV program and news. I hope to watch<br />

the Winter Olympics in February soon!<br />

Never Limit Yourself 未 來 不 設 限<br />

Hello everyone, I’m Kristopher from CKY’s Class<br />

of 2015. Under the pandemic, I am sure a lot of<br />

you have tonnes of questions regarding your<br />

future study plans and concerns towards IGCSE or<br />

IB. During this period of time, for those of you who<br />

are busy piecing together your extended essay or<br />

TOK essay, I can most certainly relate. <br />

See I was there six years ago, when I was doing<br />

my final year in IB. I still remember everyday at<br />

school, sitting around in the library during my free<br />

period, pondering about university choices,<br />

meeting with teachers for countless discussions<br />

regarding my internal assessments, extended<br />

essays and personal statements. It would seem<br />

breathless transitioning from one system where<br />

you depend on others to plan your studies for you,<br />

to one where you must make choices on your own.<br />

<br />

Never limit yourself, Make use of any chances you have.<br />

During my junior years, I had achieved poorly in<br />

most of my academic subjects prior to IGCSE. I<br />

know this might come as a surprise to most of you,<br />

but those who taught me in my junior years would<br />

know it is true. And after months of entering<br />

IGCSE, I fell into disappointment and despair,<br />

almost tipping me over on giving up on my<br />

studies. <br />

After I received my final report card in Year 9, I<br />

know some changes had to be made. As if I<br />

continue on my current path, I would not get into<br />

any university, especially if I want to study abroad.<br />

Starting then, I sought help from all my teachers<br />

and classmates in every subject and started to put<br />

effort into revision and daily assignments; and over<br />

the course of Year 10, I saw significant<br />

improvement in my performance. <br />

After passing IGCSE, the biggest challenge has<br />

yet to come, the IB. Before commencement of IB,<br />

we were instructed to choose subjects that may<br />

well determine what we will study in the future in<br />

university. As there were different combinations<br />

and emphasis on different subjects, including HL<br />

and SL. Back then, I didn’t know what to pursue<br />

for my future, so I just stuck to what I did best in<br />

IGCSE and headed on. <br />

I still remember the moment I chose English Lang<br />

& Lit SL, and Chinese Lang & Lit HL. As I learned<br />

second language in my IGCSE years, many others<br />

and I doubted my ability to ascend into first<br />

language. It was a gamble but I didn’t want to let<br />

my past experience limit my exposure to future<br />

career choices.<br />

Page 36

Road Less Taken<br />

Honestly speaking, during my final year in IB, I didn’t know what to pursue for my future after I graduated<br />

from CKY. I applied subjects ranging from Business, Language studies, to Healthcare, including medicine<br />

and pharmacy. I attended and prepared for so many interviews, making up answers I know I didn’t mean, as<br />

I have no idea what my interests are, I was just hoping I could get into whatever choices were given to me.<br />

And at the end, after the IB results were released, I was accepted into HKU to study medicine<br />

六 年 前 , 我 從 母 校 畢 業 了 , 在 此 之 前 的 中 學 ⽣ 涯 中 , 我 懵 懵 懂 懂 , 對 ⼈⽣ 沒 有 明 確 的 ⽅ 向 。⽣ 活 的 道 路 , 像<br />

是 在 ⼀ 邊 ⾏⾛⼀ 邊 摸 索 出 來 的 。 在 這 段 時 期 , 我 曾 經 年 少 輕 狂 , 曾 經 迷 惘 不 安 。 所 幸 , 我 的 ⽼ 師 、 我 的 家 ⾧ 默<br />

默 地 陪 伴 我 , 等 待 我 成 ⾧, 使 我 醒 覺 ⾃⼰ 需 要 改 變 ,⽽ 發 ⾃ 內 ⼼ 地 想 要 奮 ⾾, 願 意 為 未 來 拼 搏 。 出 乎 意 料 的 ,<br />

我 在 IB 取 得 滿 分 , 這 是 許 多 ⼈ 意 想 不 到 的 , 包 括 我 ⾃⼰。<br />

「⼈⽣ 有 無 限 可 能 !」 我 深 深 地 體 會 。 之 前 ,⼀ 路 ⾛ 來 , 道 路 崎 嶇 ;⼈⽣ 的 未 來 也 未 必 平 坦 , 但 我 想 和 同 學<br />

們 分 享 的 是 : 永 遠 不 要 限 制 ⾃⼰, 請 把 握 時 機 , 勇 往 直 前 , 即 使 前 路 坎 坷 。<br />

如 今 , 我 即 將 從 醫 學 院 畢 業 了 , 也 將 正 式 踏 ⼊⼈⽣ 的 另 ⼀ 個 階 段 。⽬ 前 在 實 習 中 , 雖 然 也 會 ⾯ 對 着 各 種 挑<br />

戰 , 但 是 這 令 我 感 悟 到 平 凡 ⽣ 活 的 美 好 , 亦 更 加 珍 惜 與 家 ⼈ 相 處 的 時 光 。<br />

在 此 疫 情 期 間 , 衷 ⼼ 祝 福 CKY 的 學 弟 學 妹 堅 持 不 懈 , 爭 取 佳 績 , 也 祝 願 ⼤ 家 健 康 。<br />

At the 50th Gala Dinner hosted by the Faculty of Law<br />

“<br />

What I’ve been up<br />

to since leaving<br />

CKY<br />

”<br />

After leaving CKY, I’ve been pursuing<br />

legal studies at the University of Hong Kong<br />

(HKU). During my freshman year, I got to meet a<br />

lot of people at orientation and made a lot of<br />

friends. Aside from studying, I decided to run as<br />

an executive committee member of the Law<br />

Association of HKU with my friends. I had the<br />

opportunity to organise various events for law<br />

students and got to meet many people from the<br />

legal field and work with them. For example, I<br />

organised the annual high table dinner, which is a<br />

longstanding HKU tradition for students, where I<br />

invited and got to meet with guests from different<br />

areas of the legal field, including barristers,<br />

solicitors, and judges. I also joined the Rule of<br />

Law Education Project (ROLE) organised by<br />

HKU’s faculty of law, where I hosted seminars<br />

and lectures at secondary schools with my peers<br />

on different legal topics to promote legal<br />

education. During semester breaks, I worked as a<br />

mini-pupil and intern at both barristers’ chambers<br />

and solicitors’ law firms respectively. I was able<br />

to gain first-hand experience in how the legal<br />

field works in real life and gain a better idea of<br />

what I would like to do in the future.<br />

“<br />

How CKY has helped<br />

”<br />

At first, it was challenging to adapt to university life, studying<br />

law and other extra-curricular commitments. However, I believe that the<br />

IBDP has prepared me to better adapt to the mode of teaching and learning<br />

at university. Over time, I was able to get used to balancing different<br />

responsibilities and studying a wholly new subject. The biggest perk of<br />

being an IB student was the research and essay writing skills that I<br />

developed. The experience gained from completing the extended essay and<br />

written work during the IB made writing research papers at university less<br />

challenging, making the transition between secondary school and university<br />

less daunting than I imagined.<br />

“<br />

Words of Advice<br />

”<br />

Personally, the biggest challenge for me at HKU was the pressure of being surrounded by brilliant<br />

and hardworking people, as everyone in law school is extremely competitive. The workload of courses was<br />

also a challenge for me, where each course covered about as much content as each IB subject, but I only had<br />

one semester to study each course, whereas I had two years to do so in secondary school. To overcome these<br />

hurdles, I was fortunate to establish lifelong friendships with my fellow peers. Having such companions<br />

along this journey was vital to get through the difficulties of intense competition and workload. Being able<br />

to attend lessons together and prepare for examinations together with friends made the challenges less<br />

unnerving and easier to get by. My biggest advice to approaching university would be to embrace the<br />

changes and challenges fully and find the right confidants to accompany you along the way. I believe that<br />

university is a great opportunity to challenge yourself with new responsibilities and meet new people<br />

throughout the journey.<br />
