Clementi Secondary School

To celebrate Clementi Secondary School's 85th anniversary, an art exhibition was held from June 3 to 7 at Hall L1 and L2 of the Central Library.

The exhibition showcased the artistic creativity of teachers, students, parents and alumni. The event also promoted the importance of aesthetics.

The opening ceremony was officiated by renowned pottery expert and alumnus Dr Ng Heung-sang on the afternoon of June 3.

In her speech, she recalled fond memories from her school days. She stressed that everyone should try to get involved in artistic creation so that art can become part of people's daily lives.

The principal, Li Sui-wah, thanked everyone who visited the exhibition. Li pointed out that several artworks had been delivered from abroad in a sign of the school's broad reach among its ex-students.

The theme of this year's exhibition was 'Dreams'. More than 300 artworks were presented in different categories, including Chinese paintings, Western paintings, Chinese calligraphy, sculptures, handicrafts, photographs, fashion and decoration art.

They were all created by students, teachers, alumni and parents. Visitors to the exhibition were well rewarded by a wide range of visual treats.

Although the displayed items varied greatly in their artistic styles and messages, they had one thing in common: they all testified to the individual artists' creativity.

CCC Kei Yuen College

It was an unforgettable day in our lives. On May 14, more than 30 schools from the New Territories East and West took part in an improvised drama competition, 'Speak Out, Act Up'.

The event was organised by the Education Bureau.

We were a team of four girls. And we were representing our school, CCC Kei Yuen College, in an inter-school drama competition for the first time. We felt really excited, but became more anxious as the competition day neared. However, we had promised our schoolmates and teachers to do our best, and turn the stress into energy while performing.

We were given two topics to prepare just five days before the competition.

Although we were disappointed that we didn't make it to the final playoff, we won a team prize for Best Dramatic Techniques.

The most important thing, however, was that we developed a strong friendship. We will push ourselves to go further next time. We can't wait for the next competition!

Caritas Ma On Shan Secondary School

Form Four students at Caritas Ma On Shan Secondary School got a taste of ice hockey earlier this month.

Canadian ice hockey coach, Kyle, and two assistants from the Hong Kong Academy of Ice Hockey gave an exciting introduction to the sport, including a talk on the safety and rules of the game, in the school hall.

Students were thrilled to wear some of the elaborate protective equipment used by professional players, such as elbow pads, gloves, knee pads and the safety helmet.

The fourth formers were also surprised by the length of the ice hockey stick. Then it was out to the playground and the sweltering summer heat for students - and some teachers - who played a six-a-side game using a ball.

Some students showed they could play ice hockey well, even though it was the first time they had tried it.

This proved an exciting opportunity to try a new sport and learn about team spirit. The activity, organised by the English and Physical Education departments, was also a great chance to learn English in a fun and meaningful way.
