13 February 2018 -- Chinese Literary Club Performance

 

As an early celebration to the Chinese New Year, the school community gathered in the Assembly Hall for the annual Chinese Literary Club performance. The extravaganza began with wonderful festive music performed by members of the Chinese Orchestra to mark the end of Chinese Music Week. The group then astounded the audience as teachers were invited as surprise guests to perform alongside the ensemble, receiving rapturous applause.

The much-anticipated main event, the inter-class singing competition, soon ensued with the audience being treated to original and creative performances delivered by classes who had made the cut to compete on finals day. Decked in reds and golds of traditional costumes, the finalists gave their all on stage, performing traditional Chinese folk songs with a modern twist, complete with an integrated drama and dance routine. The day’s events culminated with an original extended drama piece set in ancient times, celebrating the beauty of Chinese literary texts and cherishing the precious opportunity we now have in receiving education today.

19 December 2017 -- Mini Bazaar

 

A long-standing tradition, the annual Mini Bazaar was held successfully on 19th December, bringing together alumni, family members and friends of the School in a joyous reunion. Our alumna, Dr. Joyce Samoutou-Wong, medical missionary in the Congo, graced us with her presence as Guest of Honour, addressing the School with warmth and encouraging students to continue living out the school motto, "Daily Giving Service".

Aside from a spectacular array of products on sale, designed by our upper-form students, younger girls came together in their classes to set up creative and fun game stalls. The School also welcomed various charities and other organizations, including the 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 day of celebration and giving, and proceeds of the Bazaar will go to various charitable organizations as we pay forward the grace we have received.

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.
