Inter-house Athletics Heats and Finals (2 & 7 November 2018)  

Beautiful weather and an impressive sports ground served as the backdrop to our annual Inter-house Athletics Meet this year, with students and staff alike enjoying the break from academics to celebrate the joy of sports at the Tseung Kwan O Sports Ground on the 2nd and 7th 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.

Spectators likewise cheered on their housemates with energetic enthusiasm, with each house putting on brilliantly choreographed track dances during the Cheering Competition. Hurrell House eventually clinched the title, thanks partly to the surprise visit by an inflatable dinosaur mascot.

The Finals Day events ended with the anticipated Teachers' Relay, as students supported them with loud cheers and applause. The whole school then reconvened in a 400-metre Fun Walk around the field, before closing the day with prize presentations with our Athletics Team coaches serving as the guests of honour. Sawyer House eventually took first place overall, beating Hurrell House by only a few points. Thanks goes to all girls and their teachers for their enthusiastic participation in both Inter-house Athletics days, which contributed to the success of the event.

Music Exchange Concerts in Wuhan (13-15 October) & Changsha (27-29 October)  

Over two weekends in October, a total of around 150 students in the Symphony Orchestra and the Senior Choir traveled into China on the High Speed Rail to perform in two exchange concerts with local schools, upon invitation by the Economic and Trade Office of the Government of the HKSAR in Wuhan (WHETO) as part of the 「閃耀香港2018」 cultural activities.

On October 14th, the DGS Symphony Orchestra performed with the Wuhan Dongfang Shaonian Orchestra, the latter comprising students from the Wuhan Conservatory of Music; whilst on October 28th, the Senior Choir performed with the Changsha Changjun Middle School students. Both performances were very well received by members of the public.

Inter-school Division One Swimming Championships (26 October 2018)  

After hours of intense competition at the Kowloon Park Swimming Pool, our swimming team once again clinched the Inter-school Division I overall championships for the 31st consecutive year. Thanks to great teamwork, we ended the 2018 championships with another Grand Slam victory.

We are very pleased that DGS has set 5 records, including 4 individual records and 1 relay record. In particular, Ho Nam Wai has set a new record for the A grade 200m freestyle, and Wong Sze Ting has set a new record for the B grade 50m freestyle. Our swimmers have performed especially well in the 200m Individual Medley section, with Lau Ping Yi Audrey and Lam Hoi Kiu rewriting the record book for C grade and B grade respectively. In C grade, the relay team comprising Fung Suet Ying Chloe, Ho Wan Yui, Lau Ping Yi Audrey and Tse On Ching has set a record in the 4x50m Medley relay.

Our success came about as a result of countless hours of dedication by our swimmers as well as the tremendous support given by the DGS family. We are incredibly grateful for our achievements and blessings. We will continue to strive for excellence in the years to come.
