Challenge yourself to something new this summer

We have to make many decisions in life, and recently I had to make a tough one.

I wanted to join a three-week programme during the summer holidays.

But I have a tight schedule. I also plan to attend tutorial classes as well as learn a musical instrument during the two-month break.

In the end, I decided not to take the summer course. I wasn't very happy, but I have no regrets about it.

I really hope that my efforts will bring satisfactory results.

I also hope that all of you will make the right decisions.


STFA Tam Pak Yu College Thanks for your letter, Iris. It's good of you to plan your summer holidays. The two months will be wasted if you just sit around all day watching television or playing computer games. I'm glad that you've decided to do so many things over the holidays.

Maybe you'd like to join our Summer Challenge. You can send an e-mail to and tell us about your goal, for example, learning to play a musical instrument or a language. We will follow your process over the summer until you achieve your goal.

I hope you will have a fun and meaningful summer!
