Swimming Gala (December 18, 2017)

School Calendar

The Annual Swimming Gala was held successfully at the Victoria Park Swimming Pool on 18th December, 2017.

As our School Principal, Mr. Law, fired the starting pistols, eight representatives from the swimming team leapt into the water simultaneously. Their powerful strokes symbolized the unleashing of the swimmers’ full potential in the upcoming competitions. The oaths taken by the Sports Secretaries of the four houses reminded our fellow students of the importance of sportsmanship.

While some swimmers have achieved their personal best time, some have broken the school record. After a series of hard-fought races, particularly in the relay events, St. Valentina House won the Overall Champion in all three grades. The vivacious cheering girls loudly and zealously cheered for our swimmers, especially those struggling to complete the race. Their enthusiasm offered not only a tremendous source of support for our swimmers, but was also a pure manifestation of the spirit of sportsmanship. The splendid performances by our Form One cheering girls brought the day to a beautiful end.

We were honoured to have Jenna Lui, our alumna, to be our guest-of-honour. Jenna not only presented the prizes for us, she even participated in the Inter-house freestyle relay. Her speech at the closing ceremony has inspired the congregation and was very encouraging for our budding athletes.
