30 September 2016 -- PTA AGM


This year marks the 60th anniversary of the School’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA), and parents and teachers alike gathered in the School Auditorium to celebrate at the Annual General Meeting (AGM). We were also honoured to have past chairpersons of the PTA with us on this special occasion.

Those present were treated to special performances before the start of the meeting by choirs from both the Junior and the Senior School, who graced the stage with their music from this past summer at the International Children's Choir Festival in the United Kingdom and the 3rd Singapore International Choral Festival respectively.

Formal proceedings also included a cake-cutting ceremony, honouring the six decades of the PTA's tireless efforts to bring together parents and teachers in close communication for the benefit of our girls. To end the evening, parents then had the opportunity to meet their girls' teachers for informal discussions on school life and academics.

Despite the fact that the Swimming Heats was moved back to the School's in-house swimming pool due to inclement weather, there was a buzz of excitement as students and teachers gathered in the Kowloon Park Swimming Pool for the Inter-house Swimming Finals. The high levels of enthusiasm were on display in the songs and chants that reverberated across the pool, and all houses gave it their all in the cheering competition, with Skipton House rising to the top.

The swimmers of each house also put in their best efforts, showcasing the breathtaking results from countless hours of disciplined training. At the end of the day, two relay records and three individual records were rewritten, with two of the individual records formerly set by girls who had gone on to represent Hong Kong in the Olympic Games. The Overall Championship was claimed by Symons House, winning the top position in both B and C Grades.

The School was honoured to have Ms. Rosanna Sze Hang Yu, former student and Olympic swimmer, as Guest of Honour for the Prize Presentation Ceremony. Ms. Sze addressed the School, thanking the School for the support and nurturing she received as a student athlete, and encouraging current students through her own experiences to pursue excellence in all areas of school life.
