Teachers, students and parents joined in the fun as Tsuen Wan Government Secondary School staged a variety show to celebrate its 40th anniversary.

The students were in a cheerful mood right from the opening ceremony when it was revealed that the school would install more air-conditioners in order to improve its learning environment.

The show itself began on a high note with a performance by the Chinese orchestra. This was followed by alumni singing songs about their school experiences.

The English drama Here or There, a modern one-act play jointly presented by the drama club and the English society, aimed to make people treasure life. Then came a karate demonstration that was well received by the audience.

After an enchanting performance by the school choir, the ballet dancers stepped in to huge cheers.

A rendition of The Huanghe Piano Concerto by Wong Cho-ki and Lee Yung-yung ensured that there was going to be no let-up in the entertainment.

Parents also chipped in, singing some slow, romantic numbers, while a couple performed a Latin dance - the rumba. Another feature of the variety show was the interactive drama in which the audience were able to vote for their favourite play and comedian. There was plenty of laughter, yet the winning play itself, Beauty and the Beast, conveyed a serious message - people should try their best in acting out their real-life roles.

The climax was a Cantonese opera piece sung by teachers Ng Shu-wan and Fung Li Fung-lin.

The guests were also impressed by the school symphony, whose performances included The Grand Canyon Overture.
