25 November 2016 -- Speech Day


It was a joyous occasion as the School held its Speech Day for the Class of 2016 on Friday, 25th November. We welcomed back our newest cohort of graduates, and celebrated the achievements of our girls in both academic and non-academic arenas, while praising God for the grace and honour He has bestowed upon our School over the past year.

The Speech Day commenced at 5:30 p.m. in the Auditorium, with an opening prayer by Reverend McCoy. This was followed by a report of the school's achievements over the past year by the Headmistress, Mrs Lau. (Please click HERE to download the Headmistress' report.) She then shared her personal insights on the role of parents within the current educational environment of Hong Kong, encouraging parents to nurture their relationships with their children, and to allow their children the freedom to take risks, overcome obstacles, and define their own paths of success.

We were graced with the presence of Professor Gabriel Leung, Dean of the Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine at the University of Hong Kong, as our Guest of Honour. Professor Leung expressed his passion for tending to the needs of the underprivileged in society, drawing connections between social justice and the impacts on societies all across the globe. He stressed the importance of education for all, and urged graduates and current students alike to utilize their unique talents and positions to bring about positive change in Hong Kong society.

The whole auditorium reverberated to the sound of the School Hymn, and the evening's ceremony drew to a close with a prayer and benediction by the Right Reverend Andrew.

8 & 29 November 2016 -- Inter-house Athletics Heats and Finals


The Wanchai Sports Ground buzzed with excitement as the whole school gathered on the 8th and 29th November for the annual Inter-house Athletics Meet. Whether on the track or the field, girls displayed their strength and agility as they thrust javelins and shotputs, leaped over hurdles and crossbars, and sprinted through finish lines. Spectators likewise cheered on their housemates with energetic enthusiasm, each house wowing audiences with brilliantly choreographed track dances during the Cheering Competition.

The Finals Day events ended with the anticipated Invitation Relay, where teachers' teams were joined by two groups of old girls, as students supported them with loud cheers and applause. The whole school then reconvened in a 400-metre Fun Walk around the field, before gathering to celebrate and thank our P.E. teacher, Mr. K.L. Tang, for his three decades of service to the school. The Guest of Honour, Ms. Ho Mo-ki, Chief School Development Officer (Yau Tsim Mong District) of the Education Bureau, was invited to present and awards to the athletes, closing off this year's Athletics Meet.
