1 February 2019 -- Chinese Literary Club Performance

    

To usher in the Chinese New Year, the school community gathered in the Assembly Hall for the much-anticipated Chinese Literary Club performance. The Guzheng Ensemble and Chinese orchestra opened the programme with their festive music, before moving on to the inter-class singing competition.

After many weeks of rehearsals to perfect their choreography and vocal arrangements, the finalist classes gave it their all on stage. Decked out in reds and golds, the girls' renditions of traditional Chinese folk songs were given a modern twist, complete with creative drama and dance performances. The event culminated with an original drama set in ancient times, with guest performances by teachers bringing about much excitement and joy to all within the Assembly Hall, as we celebrate the Chinese New Year festivities.

16 November 2018 -- Speech Day

 

The annual Speech Day was a joyous occasion for the School as we welcomed back our newest cohort of graduates, with the support 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 night’s events commenced at 5:30 p.m. in the Auditorium, opening with a prayer by Reverend Alex McCoy and a report on the year by the Headmistress. Mrs. Lau also shared her personal insights on the new pedagogical focus of developing “design thinking” in our students, as well as how these skills can be implemented seamlessly within the DGS curriculum.

We were graced with the presence of Mr. Kevin Yeung Yun-hung, JP, Secretary for Education, as our Guest of Honour, who then addressed the audience. Mr. Yeung gave the exhortation to our girls to not only strive to take advantage of the myriad of opportunities offered them, but also to uphold the legacy of the School in using their education to give back to society.

After the presentation of prizes and awards, the Head Girls and Assistant Head Girl represented the student body to give Votes of Thanks in English, Cantonese and Putonghua, expressing their gratitude to the School, parents, teachers, and classmates for their time of learning and growth at DGS. The night ended with the School Hymn, and the Right Reverend Andrew Chan gave the closing prayer and benediction. As we celebrate the achievements of our girls in both academic and non-academic arenas, we praise God for the grace and honour He has bestowed on our School for the past year and beyond.
