Cheung Sha Wan Catholic Secondary School Cheung Sha Wan Catholic Secondary launched its grand kick-off ceremony on October 15 to celebrate its 40th anniversary. For the first time in the school's history, the whole school - more than 1,000 teachers and students - stood close together on the playground to form a stunning picture of a radiating 'sun'. Despite a few morning showers and an all-wet playground, the activity went ahead as scheduled. Luckily, the sky brightened up and soon the sun was shining. It was a wonderful, magical moment when the two suns met. It took more than an hour to form the pattern because of the large number of people involved. Art teacher Ms Ng painstakingly arranged the people while the camera crew on the fifth floor gave suggestions for fine-tuning the shape. All participants displayed great enthusiasm. All our hard work paid off as the completed pattern was strikingly beautiful. The principal declared the opening of the 40th anniversary celebration and student leaders let go of four balloons, each representing a decade. Everybody looked up in the same direction, symbolising unity and a sense of mission. Finally, we sang the school hymn, ending the event on a high note. It was a memorable moment that will certainly stay in everybody's heart. Students are looking forward to the celebration activities leading to the school's Open Day on November 19 and 20.
