TSUEN WAN Government Secondary School celebrated its 35th anniversary recently with the theme 'In Spirit and Endeavour United for a Better Tomorrow'.

The school opened its doors to visitors and a prize-giving ceremony was held.

A tapestry knitted with the joint effort of 200 Form Two and Three students as a token of love for the school was unveiled at the opening ceremony by guest-of-honour Chau Lam Wai-chee, the principal of Tai Po Government Secondary School.

The tapestry, which featured the campus and the school badge, was stitched in matching bright colours.

It reminisces how the school, which was built on a piece of marshland 35 years ago, has developed into a solid education institution.

Professor Arthur K. C. Li, the Vice-Chancellor-designate of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, was invited to address the school and present prizes to the students at the prize-giving ceremony.

It had been a successful academic year.

Sixty-six students sat for the A-Levels and scored 29 distinctions and 133 credits. Top scorer Chan Kam-ang earned three As and two Bs.

The 182 students who sat for the HKCEE achieved a passing rate of 100 per cent for the first time in the school.

Ho Kui-lee and Chan Hsi each scored nine As.

Li Ho-ming was selected as a 1995 New Territories Region Outstanding Student and a finalist in the Hong Kong Outstanding Student Award.

Chung Kam-wah won the Outstanding Student Award for Tsuen Wan, Kwai Chung and Tsing Yi districts.

Chan Shuen-ti was picked as a finalist in the South China Morning Post Student Musician of the Year Award.

Lam Chung-ching and Chin Chi-kui were selected by the Urban Services Department as Ambassadors of Hygiene and won a trip to Singapore.

Lo Ka-man was selected by the Hong Kong Schools Sports Council as a representative of the Hong Kong delegation to Japan.

Principal Tang Ping-leung said the school would continue to help students develop a positive attitude towards life and become all-round achievers.
