A graduation marathon was held on December 21, 2006, at the Main Dam of Plover Cove Reservoir. Its purpose was to promote interest in regular exercise, and enhance inter-personal relationships, sense of belonging, and the spirit of supporting each other.
The event, which was aimed at training students' perseverance and patience and equipping them for future challenges, was specially designed for Form Five and Form Seven graduates.
Led by the teaching staff, all Form Five and Form Seven graduates set off early in the morning. They arrived at the Main Dam and took part in the graduation marathon which was a unique experience in their life. The event was divided into boys' and girls' teams. To enhance team spirit, an inter-class competition - won by Form 5B - was held.
There were about 200 participants and most of them completed the route in 35 minutes. Lai Chack students' perseverance proved that they could face any challenge, including public examinations and hardships, in the future.
