22 & 30 November 2021 -- Inter-house Athletics Heats and Finals


After a one-year hiatus, students and staff alike were excited to return to the Wanchai Sports Ground on 22nd and 30th November to enjoy our Inter-house Athletics Heats and Finals. It was an impressive display of sportsmanship as athletes thrust javelins and shotputs, leapt over hurdles and crossbars, and sprinted past finish lines.

Spectators likewise cheered on their housemates with energetic enthusiasm, with each house putting on brilliantly choreographed track dances during the Cheering Competition, and Hurrell House eventually clinching the title.

The highlight of the Finals Day was the much-anticipated Fun Run, with each house sending a relay team of two teachers and two student sprinters. A “Tokyo 2020” team also graced us with their presence, comprising old girls from the Hong Kong Team that competed in the recent Olympics, who took their places amidst loud cheering from girls. In a tight dash to the finish between two of our male teachers, it was Hurrell House that came out victorious once again.

The events closed with prize presentations, and we were honoured to have as Guests of Honour our Track Referee Mr. Tang Hon Sing and Field Referee Mr. Lo Nai Shing on Heats Day, as well as both our outgoing and incoming Supervisors, Mrs. Doris Ho and Ms. Benita Yu, on Finals Day. In the end, Hurrell House took first place overall, edging a few points over the other houses with their lead in C grade.
