Speech Day (24 November 2017)

This year's Speech Day was a joyful occasion as the School welcomed back the latest cohort of graduates and celebrated the achievements of our girls in both academic and non-academic arenas. We were graced with the presence of many distinguished guests, members of the School Council, the Diocesan Old Girls Association, the Parent-Teacher Association, parents, and friends of the School.

The Headmistress Mrs. Lau delivered her address on the need for graduates to equip themselves with the skills and mindset needed for today’s ever-changing landscape, particularly in light of the rapid changes that technology has brought to society in recent years. Our Guest of Honour, Professor Tony F. Chan, President of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, reciprocated in kind in his address, sharing with graduates his experiences and insights on how best to navigate the rapid advances in modern-day society and advising them to capitalize on their youth to realize their ambitions and dreams.

After the presentation of prizes and awards, the Head Girls and Assistant Head Girl represented the student body to give the Votes of Thanks in English, Cantonese and Mandarin, expressing their gratitude to the School, parents, teachers, and classmates for their time of learning and growth at DGS. We praise God for the grace and honour He has bestowed on our School for the past year and for the blessings in the years to come.

Inter-house Athletics Heats and Finals (8 & 17 November 2017)

Students and staff alike enjoyed a fun-filled, refreshing day of sports during the Inter-house Athletics Meets held at the Wanchai Sports Ground on the 8th and 17th November.

Whether on the track or the field, girls displayed their strength and agility as they thrust javelins and shotputs, leapt over hurdles and crossbars, and sprinted through finish lines. Each house demonstrated their energetic enthusiasm in the Cheering Competition, with Sawyer House taking the trophy with their brilliantly choreographed track dance.

The Finals Day events ended with the much-anticipated Invitation Relay, where students loudly cheered on the teachers' teams, who were joined by one team of old girls in a tight race to the finish line. The whole school then reconvened in a 400-metre Fun Walk around the field, before the day ended with prize presentations with our former P.E. Sports Master, Mr. K.L. Tang as the Guest of Honour. Hurrell House eventually took first place overall, beating Sawyer House by only a few points. The two days were immensely successful, thanks to the enthusiastic participation of all girls and teachers involved.

Gospel Week & Harvest Festival (23-27 October 2017)

This year's Gospel Week, themed "Lost and Found", arrived in timely fashion towards the end of October, reflecting the grace of God through Jesus Christ.

Members of the Youth Fellowship blessed the school community with moving presentations of the Gospel message throughout the week’s morning assemblies, including a contemporary worship session, a short drama depicting the parable of the prodigal son, and a mime on finding joy in the Lord. We were especially honoured to have the company of Dr. Milton Wan and Dr. Renee Ip at our evangelistic meeting. They shared with us their insights and personal testimonies of how coming into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ can change our hearts, mend our brokenness, and give hope and purpose to our lives.

The School celebrated the annual Harvest Festival during this week, as students and staff gave food items and monetary donations to help the needy in our society, with the hopes of passing on God's abundant blessings in our lives to those around us.

30 Years and Counting at the Inter-school Division One Swimming Championships (27th October 2017)

After 8 hours of tough competitions at the Kowloon Park Swimming Pool, our swimmers' timeless effort has enabled them to achieve outstanding results. The team was able to reap the fruits of success - winning the Inter-School Division One Swimming championships for the 30th consecutive year.

DGS has set 6 new records in 4 individual events and 2 relays. Jenna Cheung has set a record in the A grade 200m Breaststroke, while the relay team comprising Wong Cho Ying, Sharron Chan, Chan Tsz Ching and Hung Hiu Yan has also set another record in the A grade 4x50m Freestyle relay.  In B grade, Ho Nam Wai has set a record in the 200m Freestyle while the relay team comprising Ho Nam Wai, Chan Lok Man Carissa, Lai Lok Yee and Leung Hui Tung has set a record in the 4x50m Freestyle relay. In C grade, Wong Sze Ting has rewritten two individual records in the 50m Freestyle and the 200m Freestyle.

We were especially pleased to be able to capture this honour in the presence of our Chief Executive Carrie Lam, who officiated the ceremony on this occasion. We could not have reached such heights without the hard work and dedication of all our swimmers, past and present dating back to 1988.  With the continued support from the DGS family, we hope to carry on with the Diocesan legacy in the years to come.
