Following the #StayHome&MakeMusic video which generated much positivity and heartwarming sentiments in our community and beyond, the College is proud to present another blockbuster video – #WhileIBreatheIHope, which hopes to spread love further and farther through music. Both of these videos have now kickstarted the LoveHKLoveU campaign presented by the University of Hong Kong (HKU).

Curated by the College’s Music Director, this latest video features renowned American composer, Mr. Mark Hayes, along with student representatives from the Treble and Senior Mixed Voice Choirs as well as alumni, staff and Council members of the College and Primary School. The College wishes to express its gratitude to all these St. Paulians for their contributions to this meaningful cause.

This video is dedicated to all healthcare workers who worked selflessly and tirelessly to keep us safe during this pandemic.

Design & Technology
Mission

Design & Technology (D&T) is to introduce the basic concepts of design and technology to the students of junior secondary level. They are motivated to perform design work with different materials and to apply their knowledge of “design” and “technology” in problem-solving activities. They learn to think and intervene creatively to improve quality of life. They must look for needs, wants and opportunities and respond to them by developing a range of ideas and making products and systems. They combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetics, environmental and social issues, functions and industrial practices. As they do so, they explore & experience the dimension of aesthetic and creativity. Through the subject, all students can become discriminating and informed users / consumers of products, and become innovators.
 

Curriculum Goals

The goals of D&T are to develop students’:

  • ability to employ graphical communication techniques as an integral part of design experience;
