Over the last few months, all MS students have been required to organize and back up their laptop data in order to upgrade their laptop Operating System to Apple’s latest “Mountain Lion”.
As I type, we have successfully upgraded the OS and transferred data back to all 626 MS students (bar a few).
The students have been greatly cooperative in following our requirements. With the student’s collaborative effort and cooperation, the OS upgrade process ran smoothly and as planned. Our OS upgrade team, led by Mr George Woo & Michael Lam, worked hard for the past seven days in order to complete this task. Though there have been a few hick-ups, we have done well.
Brilliant work and much appreciation to all.
All students have been issued documentation detailing post OS upgrade requirements.

We are very pleased to say that we now have a consistent operating system, organized data, and an active and effective back up system in place across the Middle School.
We look forward to begin the new school year prepared.
