Budding detectives at SKH Lam Woo Memorial Secondary School had their sleuthing skills tested recently when the English Award Scheme (EAS) staged a murder on the school premises.

Fifty-seven teams took part in the 'Best of the Best' competition from February 24 to March 4. Their mission was to find who had 'killed' a clown, whose body was discovered in a secret chamber (pictured below).

The teams were provided with a series of clues and interviewed people connected with the 'victim'. After that they were each given 15 minutes to discuss their ideas and to decide who the culprit was.

The solution will be provided in a film show this Thursday, and the winners will win tickets to Ocean Park. Thanks to the EAS for an exciting and enjoyable event.
