An audience of about 1,000 people screamed, waved and applauded contestants through the Yuen Long Joint School Singing Contest recently. Yuen Long Lut Sau Hall was packed for the event which saw Karen Poon Ying from SKH Bishop Baker Secondary School win best solo performance and stage presentation. 'I am especially surprised at the award for stage presentation,' said the Form Five student. 'I used to suffer from stage fright so this tells me that I must be improving!' Cheung Ting-shing and Chan Hiu-men from Ho Dao College sang hand in hand to win the chorus section. Another highlight of the contest was an energetic dance routine by two girls from the CCC Kei Long College who dressed as twins and roused the audience to a standing ovation. Other schools in the contest organised by Yuen Long Student Union were: Chiu Lut Sau Memorial School; CUHKFAA Thomas Cheung Secondary School; Heung To Middle School (Tin Shui Wai); Ju Ching Chu Secondary School (Yuen Long); POH Tang Pui King Memorial School; Shung Tak Catholic English College; CCC Kei Yuen College; TWGHs Kwok Yat Wai College and TWGHs Lo Kon Ting Memorial College.
