Graduation day for Form Five and Seven students at St Clare's Girls' School was held recently. It was a happy day which has left a lasting impression on graduates' minds.

School supervisor Sister Catherine Ni spoke at the opening ceremony. She urged graduates to continue to follow the St Clare's spirit of truth, honesty, loyalty, simplicity, giving their best and striving for the best.

Principal Eva Ng Man Yuen- wah delivered the annual school report. She encouraged students to make greater efforts in studies to strive for excellence in all areas.

The school was delighted to have as guests-of-honour Deputy Commissioner for Transport Dorothy Chan Yuen Tak-fai and Senior School Development Officer Teresa Chan Mo-ngah.

Mrs Chan, a former St Clare's student, stressed the importance of continuous learning and updating knowledge in our modern society. She also recalled her good old days at St Clare's. She said graduates should meet future challenges with courage, letting the school motto 'Veritas vincit', meaning 'truth conquers', guide them on their way.

Certificates, scholarships and prizes in academic and extra- curricular activities were presented to graduates and outstanding students. A vote of thanks was given by former head prefectPeggy Chung Pui-yee.

The school choir then performed Amazing Grace and a Chinese folk song.

The singing of the school song marked the end of the ceremony.
