After a sunny and energetic day of Heats events at the Lai Chi Kok Swimming Pool, the School reconvened at Kowloon Park Swimming Pool for the Finals. Weeks of preparation came to a satisfying end as the cheering teams put on elaborate performances to cheer their swimmers on and compete for the title of cheering champion, which went to Symons house. As for the swimmers, their outstanding form in the water was the result of months and years of hard work; spectators looked on with excitement as they strove for ever better performance and new records.

After heated rounds of house relays and a surprise line-throw event by teachers, the day came to an end with Skipton house becoming overall champion. Thanks must be given to Mr. Chen Jianhong, Head Coach of the Hong Kong Swimming Team and holder of multiple records, who kindly attended the event and presented prizes to our young swimmers.

10-11 July 2015 -- 155th Anniversary Concert

 

Although relatively low-profile compared to the 153th anniversary musical, the concert showcased the School’s musical prowess and rich history. Students, parents, patrons and old girls streamed into the campus to enjoy two evenings of delightful performances.

The first evening, titled 'Instruments of Praise', featured performances from the choral groups and Chinese Orchestra across the forms. One performance by the Concert Choir saw parents, old girls, teachers and headmistresses on stage singing with current students, using their collective voice in a rendition of 'Gloria' and uplifting praise to the Lord.

The second evening, titled 'Concerto Competition and Instrumental Showcase', turned the focus onto our Concert Band, String Orchestra and Symphony Orchestra. They tackled pieces of professional difficulty with confidence; collaborating with the DGS dance team, the finale piece of ‘Bolero’ brought the two nights of music to a rousing, fantastic close.

As our Supervisor, Mrs. Doris Ho said in her closing remarks, "In face of such music, words simply fail us." However, one final vote of thanks must be given to Mr. Leung Kin Fung, Ms Cindy Chen, Ms Mui Cheuk-yin, Mrs. Christina Chiang, Miss Grace Chiang, Miss Dorothy Hui and Mr. Chu Wai Hung for months of hard work they have dedicated to honing the skills of the students.
