Records tumbled at Sheung Shui Government Secondary School's annual sports day at North District Stadium.

There was an exciting tussle in the first event, the 3000-metre race, with a rousing fight to the finish. Not to be outshone, the relay runners showed the same fighting spirit in a series of close races that produced four new school records.

In the finals, the girls eclipsed previous times in the Grade A 4 x 100 m and 4 x 400 m races, while the boys set new standards in the Grade A 4 x 400 m and Grade C 4 x 400 m.

Two teams from Heung Yee Kuk Tai Po District Secondary School triumphed in both girls' and boys' inter-school relays.

Parents and teachers joined forces for the final relay race. The Putonghua Club won by a small margin.

Quin House performed a stunning routine to win the cheering team title.

Principal Li Lok-yin ended events by congratulating students on their success.
