19 December 2018 -- Mini Bazaar

 

The School's annual Mini Bazaar, held on 19 December, was a joyous occasion where senior and junior school students, parents, teachers, and alumnae came together to celebrate this long-standing tradition. Our Assistant Principal, Mrs. P. Hui, was the Guest of Honour, as the community thanked her on the eve of her retirement for her over four decades of service to the School.

Upper-form students set up sales stalls with a spectacular array of products, many of which were designed with the theme of the Greater Bay Area, while our younger girls came together in their classes to set up creative and fun game stalls, ranging from mystery-solving games to obstacle races. The School also welcomed various charities and other organizations, including New Sight Congo, Fu Hong Society, Queen Elizabeth Hospital Patient Resource Centre, Lutheran Social Service, and St. Andrew’s Church, as they set up booths selling products and snacks and introduced their services to the wider community.

Young and old alike enjoyed the Bazaar, and proceeds from all stalls go to various charitable organizations as we share the Christmas spirit of giving and joy. We thank God for His blessings upon the months of planning and smooth running of the Bazaar, and the opportunity to give to those in need out of His abundant provision.

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

 

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.
