THE 12th swimming gala of St Francis of Assisi's College was recently held under a fine sunny day at the Lei Cheng Uk Swimming Pool. School principal Mr Dominic Chu led the opening prayer and officiated the start of the 19 events of the day. The individual boys' overall championship went to Lee Yan-hang of Form 5C while the girls' was won by Wong Yee-wan of 6A. Form 4D snatched the overall championship with a wide margin. The day's highlight was the 4 x 50 m freestyle students and staff invitation relay in which the old boys' emerged victors. Mr Chu congratulated the winners and encouraged non-participants with an old Chinese saying: ''To win over others is great, but it is even greater to win over oneself.''
