Students and teachers of Fanling Government Secondary School combined forces to host the school's seventh annual open day.

More than 300 primary students, 20 principals and various members of the local community visited the school to see the exhibits and performances, all of which reflected the theme 'Grasp the present, create the future'.

Guest speaker Mr Chong urged students to acquire more skills and knowledge so they could benefit society in the future.

The school hall was filled with activities and exhibits. A total of 36 clubs participated in the event.

Every club produced an exhibit to entice primary students to join the school.

Highlights of the day included the premier performance of the school's first Chinese orchestra.

It performed three traditional Chinese songs, as well as Auld Lang Syne.

The Art club filled the stage with an incredible collage of colour and artistry, reflecting the skill and creative work of the students.

The Road Safety Patrol, winner of various prizes, performed for the guests. The Drama Club encouraged would-be actors to show their talents through interactive skits.

The Home Economics Department provided a fitting conclusion to the day with a delicious array of drinks and snacks.
