IT was a day to remember for staff and students of Shung Tak Catholic English College - the school was celebrating its first graduation day at its new premises in Hung Shui Kiu. The occasion also marked the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the air-conditioning system in the hall, which had a capacity audience that day with parents, graduates and well-wishers. The school was pleased to announce the good performance of its Form Seven graduates at this year's Advanced-Level Examination. Forty-five out of the 59 graduates will continue their education in various tertiary institutions. Among the students' achievements was the string of successes scored at the Hong Kong Schools Speech Festival in recent weeks. This was particularly noteworthy as the school had taken part in the festival after a long break of 12 years. The school came first in the Form One Boys' and Girls' English Choral Speaking Group and Form Two Girls' English Choral Speaking Group; Rachel Smyth won first prize in the Form Five Public Speaking Solo Open; Hermonie Hui beat 50 other competitors with her rendition of the Beatles' lyrics of She's Leaving Home , and Michael Fung of Form One came first in Class 281. In the meantime, the Shung Tak Chinese Choral Speaking Group were winners in Class 360 and Class 353, and the Form Three group also performed at the prize-winners' recital at Tuen Mun Town Hall Auditorium. Officiating at the day's ceremonies were Malcolm Long, Supervisor and Principal; Tai Kwan, School Manager and chairman of Gold Face (Restaurant Groups); Tai Kuen, chairman of the Yuen Long District Board, and Kevin Ko, vice-chairman of the Shung Tak Catholic English College Alumni Association.
