Dear members of the Diocesan community,
In this time of unprecedented health crisis, we are all staying indoors for safety. You may find yourself with more free time on your hands, so have you ever thought about spending your time with more fun beyond Zoom classes? The teaching staff of our school look forward to sharing some ideas with you, through a series of programmes we call the “DBS Booster” (拔萃加油站).
Video sharings and challenges will be posted on our Facebook (Diocesan Media) and Instagram(diocesan.media) page. After going through a productive few months of online learning, this page hopes to cater to the other parts of our lives, ensuring the mental health and physical well-being of the Diocesan community. Some of the upcoming highlights include fun household challenges, virtual morning assemblies and heartfelt messages from staff and students!
We would like to acknowledge the members of the Moral Education Committee, Civic Education Committee, RS Department, PE Department, IT Department for the hard work they have put into the making of these online programmes. We have poured their heart and soul into the process, with the singular goal of helping everyone find growth amidst all this uncertainty and bring some balance into our lives.
There will be new content on the page every Monday and Thursday starting next week; please stay tuned and we look forward to your enthusiastic response!
DBS Booster Special Task Force
In light of the highly contagious novel coronavirus, we regret to inform you that the G7 admission interviews will be cancelled. The admission criteria for the academic year 2020-2021 will be amended as follows:
|Criteria for the selection of Grade 7 (Form 1) boys||Weight|
|Others (e.g. father, brother are old boys; brother studying in DBS)||5%|
Under the new selection criteria, the school will select applicants based on their academic performance from Primary 4-6 and achievements in extracurricular activities. In addition to the weighted criteria, the school will take into consideration the applicants’ conduct. Applicants will only be accepted if their conduct and records of behaviour are satisfactory.
Should conditions allow, we may invite applicants on the waiting list to attend an interview in July for the second-round admissions.
Thank you for your kind understanding in this critical moment. We wish you all good health.
Due to the suspension of classes announced by the Education Bureau of Hong Kong, the IB Admissions Talk will be replaced by screencast presentation which will be uploaded on February 8th, 2020.
Applicants may fill in the online application form starting 8 February 2020 through our school website.
Application deadline: 8 March 2020 by 17:00.
