24 November 2017 -- Speech Day

 

This year's Speech Day was a joyful occasion as the School welcomed back the latest cohort of graduates and celebrated the achievements of our girls in both academic and non-academic arenas. We were graced with the presence 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 Headmistress Mrs. Lau delivered her address on the need for graduates to equip themselves with the skills and mindset needed for today’s ever-changing landscape, particularly in light of the rapid changes that technology has brought to society in recent years. Our Guest of Honour, Professor Tony F. Chan, President of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, reciprocated in kind in his address, sharing with graduates his experiences and insights on how best to navigate the rapid advances in modern-day society and advising them to capitalize on their youth to realize their ambitions and dreams.

After the presentation of prizes and awards, the Head Girls and Assistant Head Girl represented the student body to give the Votes of Thanks in English, Cantonese and Mandarin, expressing their gratitude to the School, parents, teachers, and classmates for their time of learning and growth at DGS. We praise God for the grace and honour He has bestowed on our School for the past year and for the blessings in the years to come.

8 & 17 November 2017 -- Inter-house Athletics Heats and Finals

 

Students and staff alike enjoyed a fun-filled, refreshing day of sports during the Inter-house Athletics Meets held at the Wanchai Sports Ground on the 8th and 17th 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. Each house demonstrated their energetic enthusiasm in the Cheering Competition, with Sawyer House taking the trophy with their brilliantly choreographed track dance.

The Finals Day events ended with the much-anticipated Invitation Relay, where students loudly cheered on the teachers' teams, who were joined by one team of old girls in a tight race to the finish line. The whole school then reconvened in a 400-metre Fun Walk around the field, before the day ended with prize presentations with our former P.E. Sports Master, Mr. K.L. Tang as the Guest of Honour. Hurrell House eventually took first place overall, beating Sawyer House by only a few points. The two days were immensely successful, thanks to the enthusiastic participation of all girls and teachers involved.
