Work helps you stay on track

It's often said that many retired people lose their motivation, hopes and targets. This boredom may even shorten their lifespan.

Yet there are so many people who constantly complain about being overworked.

What would your personal mascot be?

Minal Daswani, 16, Island School

My personal mascot would be a horse because a horse usually symbolises an independent and hard-working animal. A horse would suit me because I think I am a hard-working and independent person. Horses also symbolise strength and freedom - and I like to think of myself as being strong and free.

Communicate, rather than punish

After reading the news about a father forcing his son to walk naked in public, I feel glad to have a kind father.

The son might have done something wrong, but the father should not have punished him in this way.

This kind of punishment will lead to psychological and emotional problems for the children.

Mud and culture in South Africa

Eight Hong Kong students had first-hand experience of nature's rule - 'survival of the fittest' - by taking part in a wildlife programme in South Africa this summer.

The group, along with 43 teenagers from around the world, joined the Cathay Pacific International Wilderness Experience from July 26 to August 5.

Feeling sad

Maryknoll Fathers' School which I attend as a Form Five student has been using English as the medium of teaching for more than 40 years, and yet we were one of the schools told to switch to Chinese.

All the students had got used to this method and we were very disappointed by this decision. It was very unfair that we should be deprived of the chance to continue using English.
