CMA Secondary School

The 29th Annual Cross-Country Race organised by CMA Secondary School was held on October 6.

Participants ran alongside the school, and the route took in some of the streets in the area.

Members of the four houses - Red, Brown, Yellow and Green - took part in the event. It was divided into A, B and C divisions, a Secondary One competition and a girls' category.

All students were encouraged to take part in the race to boost their physical fitness.

The race also helped participants to stay alert and be motivated.

The school principal, Mak Yiu-kwong, fired the starting gun at 9am and the race began.

A lot of students participated in the race and battled for the top positions.

Members of the four houses set up a station along the route to provide drinks for the athletes. The cheering squad helped raise the morale of the participants.

There was a festive atmosphere as the race boosted the students' sense of belonging to their school. The competition finished at noon.

Dr Mak, the vice-principal and the representative from CMA Secondary School's Parent-Teacher Association presented medals and trophies to the winners.

The school would like to thank the police and medical services for supporting the event. It was a great success.

Lok Sin Tong Yu Kan Hing Secondary School

Students had great fun during a Halloween Parade on October 29.

Eight teams, comprising Form One to Form Six students, were the finalists of the annual drama competition.

The audience was terrified as the actors entered the stage wearing scary costumes and makeup.

The dim lighting added to the ghostly atmosphere in the school hall.

The stories were very creative. They included a ghost wandering around a school at night and pumpkins making friends with spirits. The highlight of the day was a game hosted by the school's native English teachers. The students screamed out English words, like 'trick or treat'.

Students from Form 6B were the big winners of the day. They swept the prizes, including the overall championship, the best narrator, the best actor and the most exciting team.

The 4x100-metre student-teacher relay was the highlight of the event.

During the two days, students showed great determination and enthusiasm in their pursuit of excellence.

Luke House won the overall championship, while Timothy House were selected as the best cheering team.

Chan Wing-kin, a representative of Hong Kong's wheelchair fencing team at the Beijing Paralympics, attended the closing ceremony.

Chan said he could feel the students' excitement as they took part in the competitions.

The event was a great success, thanks to the dedication of the teachers, students and cheering teams.
