9 & 21 October 2019 -- Inter-house Athletics Heats and Finals

 

The Wanchai Sports Ground buzzed with excitement as the whole school gathered on the 9th and 21st October for the annual Inter-house Athletics Meet. Whether on the track or the field, girls displayed their strength and agility as they thrust javelins and shotputs, leaped over hurdles and crossbars, and sprinted through finish lines.

Each house demonstrated their energetic enthusiasm in the Cheering Competition, with Sawyer House defending their title as Champion with their brilliantly choreographed track dance and passionate cheering. We were then treated to a surprise cheering performance by teachers, bringing much fun and joy to end the morning’s events.

The much-anticipated Invitation Relay rounded off a very exhilarating Finals Day, with students loudly cheering the teachers’ teams, and teachers dashing to the finish line in a very close race. The whole school reconvened in the 400-metre Fun Walk around the track, before the prize presentation ceremony at the end of the afternoon. We were grateful to have Mr. Tan Hon Sing and Mr. Lo Nai Shing, our track referee and field referee respectively, as well as Guests of Honour Ms. Wendy Hung and Ms. Denise Lee, old girls and former Athletics Team Captains, present medals and trophies. In the end, Gibbins House took first place overall, with a clear lead after beating the other houses in the A and B grades.
