TODAY'S youth should be aware of their obligations as well as their rights, the guest of honour, Lina Yan Hau-yee said. Speaking at the Nam Wah Catholic Secondary School speech day, the assistant to the Episcopal delegate for education pointed out that patience and responsibility enabled one to survive in times of difficulty and failure. In addition, while today's youths were quite aware of their rights, they should keep in mind their obligations, she said. Shamshuipo District Education Office senior education officer Au Tit-kwan also attended the speech day. The proceedings began with the speech of welcome by the Supervisor of Nam Wah, the Reverend Father Dominic Kong, who encouraged students to work harder for their future. He said everyone at the school would be working hard to ensure the success of the fifth anniversary celebrations next year. Principal Antonia Pedron praised the newly formed Parent-Teacher Association, which has already established a scholarship fund. She said she was happy with the academic progress of the students. This was helped by the successful English activities including English summer camp, and the use of native English speakers as teachers, she said. Certificates and prizes were presented to the graduates and students gave a concert. Cardinal John Baptist Wu Cheng-chung, Bishop of Hong Kong, also attended.
