The 18th Catholic Diocesan Schools Joint Athletics Meet Twenty-six schools from the Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong attended the biennial Athletics Meet on January 30 and 31. This year, it was jointly organised by Ng Wah Catholic Secondary School and Cheung Sha Wan Catholic Secondary School. The athletes, spectators and teachers gathered at Siu Sai Wan Sports Stadium early in the morning. The weather was poor but, thanks to the hard work of the ground staff, the track was dry and events got going quickly. It was an extremely memorable competition and a very proud moment for all the athletes involved. A win was a bonus but the participation, energy and enjoyment made the day a huge success regardless of individual placings. The two days of competition came to an end with the announcement of the final results. It was no surprise to see Cheung Sha Wan Catholic Secondary School crowned overall boys' champions and St Teresa Secondary School declared overall girls' champions. Both schools performed well throughout the event. Representatives from the winning teams received their banners and trophies from the principal assistant secretary of the Education Bureau, Wong Yau Wai-ching. The meet concluded with a prayer led by the guest-of-honour, Alice Woo Lo-ming. Chinese YMCA Secondary School During English Week at the Chinese YMCA Secondary School students could win stickers that they could spend in an E-Shop set up by teachers. All the students gathered in the open area to sign up for the English activities. There was a long queue at the 'tongue twister' stall. Students could get one sticker to perform each task within 20 seconds. The juniors loved the game. We also had treasure and photo hunts. We got a maximum of three stickers a time when we made a find. We could exchange these stickers at the E-shop for stationery, cookies and books. We only needed 30 stickers to get a grammar book. I hope we have English Week and the E-Shop again soon. Confucian Ho Kwok Pui Chun College Confucian Ho Kwok Pui Chun College held its 17th annual Sports Day on January 31 and February 1 at Tai Po Sports Ground.

The Sports Day ended on a high note with the presentation of prizes and trophies to the champions and a performance by a cheerleading team comprising members from all the four houses.
