The Annual Academic Prize-Giving Ceremony is a grand occasion for our top academic performers. A variety of awards and scholarships are presented to our Josephians for their excellent academic achievements in the previous academic year. High achievers in the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination (HKDSE) are also admitted to the SJC Academic Honour Roll in the ceremony. The Ceremony aims at recognizing the hard work of the students in preparing for examinations every year as well as promoting healthy competition among students and urging them to engage in self-improvement.
The Academic Prize-Giving Ceremony 2020 was successfully held on 15 November 2020 (SUN) and 17 November 2020 (TUE) in the New Hall. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Guest-of-Honour Dr Reynold Cheng, Supervisor Brother Jeffrey Chan, Alternate Supervisor Mr Perrick Ching, Principal Ms YF Wong, and all guests, benefactors and teachers who assisted us in our unforgettable journey, not to mention the support and encouragement from the parents to our Josephians. May we offer our sincere congratulations to all prizewinners who have attained excellent results in the academic year 2019-2020. We encourage fellow schoolmates to follow their lead and work hard to achieve success in their studies in the future. With their awards and scholarships, Josephians will surely continue to strive for excellence in academic results in the future and make history for our college.
The Inter-class Board Decoration Competition is an event where classes design a banner, with regards to the topic, to be put up on the class board. The topic is closely related to our school environment and our community. Students may also establish moral values in life, and reflect on their contribution to the school and community as a whole. The adjudicators will then rate the banners and rank the classes according to their performance, with each form having their ranking. We hope that Josephians can be instilled with a sense of belonging to SJC and community when creating an artwork that will improve their learning environment and be appreciated by their classmates and peers.

The S6 Graduation Ceremony is a grand celebration of our school's S6 students. They are looking forward to becoming contributing members of our society. S6 students gather for one last time in the hall with all teachers to reminisce about their joyful memories as well as to celebrate the start of their journey into the next stage of their lives. Classes take turns to have their graduation photos taken on the stage as the students get dressed in graduation gowns to commemorate the end of their secondary school life. Outstanding students and their achievements are showcased, and they will be congratulated by teachers and students. Every year, we are privileged to have several benefactors as well as some prominent OBA and PTA members join us in this delightful event and present the awards to our prize-winners. Honourable guests are invited to this event to share their life experiences and give valuable advice to our young adults. This spectacular ceremony will serve as a memorable and elegant ending to six years of school life in St. Joseph's.
