Tsuen Wan Government Secondary's open day reflected the school's healthy mixture of seriousness and fun. It showed how students and teachers are working in pursuit of the school's mission to offer pupils opportunities to explore their moral, intellectual, physical and aesthetic abilities.

The events took place at two venues - the games in the covered playground, and the exhibitions and displays in the hall.

The exhibits displayed work done by the academic departments and extra-curricular societies.

Interesting and carefully prepared, they ranged from demonstrations of experiments in the Chemistry lab, to displays of intricate models of traditional buildings in the Chinese department.

The Art and Design exhibition was particularly active with live demonstrations of printing, leather work and Chinese painting.

The games stalls were all about having fun and also drew much interest.

Students showed their musical talents in a concert leading with an accordion solo from Wong Xia-xin in Form One.

This was followed by a string ensemble and traditional pieces by a Chinese instrumental ensemble.

Visitors included principals from other schools, parents and prominent people from the community. Probably the most enthusiastic response came from visiting primary scholars and 15 students from B M Kotewall Memorial School run by the Spastics Association of Hong Kong.
