Money Cat




This is a sketch of our cat-shaped piggy bank in the English Corner. The late fine is two dollars per day, which isn’t much, but it can add up if the student has borrowed several items. The money collected is used for buying new items DVDs and music CDs and for replacement costs and stationery.The cat is a character called Kam Kam (who is friends with a dog called Don Don. Their product are designed and produced by a local (HK) company called PETS@work.

Sketch of Juggling Cubes

To attract students to visit the English Corner, we try to have as many interesting activities as possible. These cubes are from a book on how to juggle.

School Uniform Sketch

We have a strict dress code at our school, so this manga-girl would fail on a number of levels: the skirt is way too short (should be below the knees), the blouse is also way too short and her long hair would have to be tied up.

Taylor Swift’s Love Story

Love Story

‘Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone,
I keep waiting for you,  but you never come.

It’s a love story, baby, just say “yes”.’

Taylor Swift is one of the most popular singers amongst our students.

Through the Monsoon

Through the Monsoon / Tokio Hotel

Running through the monsoon
Beyond the world
To the end of time
Where the rain won’t hurt.
Fighting the storm
into the blue.
When I lose myself
I’ll think of you
Together we’ll be running somewhere new

These are lyrics from Through the Monsoon by the German rock band Tokio Hotel.

Crayon Shin-chan

Crayon Shin-chan

Crayon Shin-chan is the name of a manga and anime series created by Yoshito Usui. The main character, Shinnosuke “Shin” Nohara, is pictured above. Most of the humour for the show derives from Shin’s inappropriate (and somewhat lewd) behaviour. Tragically, the artist died during a hiking accident last year.
