Avant-garde and stunning is the Art Competition 2011. Nearly a hundred designers and assistants from the six Houses have worked against the clock to turn scraps into gorgeous fashion.
The panel of adjudicators was impressive in its own right. They were Legislative Councillor, Miss Tanya Chan, celebrity alumnae, Miss Kitty Yuen and Miss Fiona Chan. Actress Miss Koni Lui, as well as professionals in design, Mr Paul Lau and 小克.
The art works went through many stages before they were presented to the audience. House Captains and their committees addressed their concerns with exquisite craftsmanship and imagination: childhood memory, marriage, uniqueness, over-reliance on technologies, life and death, Egyptian culture and the like.
The fashion show-cum-carnival fully involved the audience, hip-hop dancers, past students and teachers. In the past few months, these teachers and students have spent much time on workshops about how to walk down the runway: Mrs Maria Lam, Mrs Winnie Poon, Mrs Regan, Miss Chan Ka Ling, Miss Chang Wai Fong, Miss Mandy Cheung, Miss Maria Lam, Miss Laura Lai, Miss Ivy Lee, Miss Wendy Lee, Ms Elaine Chan, Ms Nancy Chow, Ms Laxmi Prasad, Mr Ted Chow and Mr Thomas Hung. They carried themselves so well on stage.
We would like to express our special thanks to the Parent-Teacher Association, Galaxy House Tutorial School and Ms Chan Ka Yin for their generosity in funding the project.
We are very excited to tell you, our Sacred Heartists and the world, that we have reached our targeted $20 million for the school’s 150th Anniversary School Development Project. As we have noted on various occasions, we have been very fortunate to have a kind benefactor who has agreed to contribute $10 million for the Auditorium plus another $5 million in a dollar-to-dollar matching scheme for the IT centre.
We are happy to announce that Mrs Charity Fung and her two sons, Dr Victor Fung and Dr William Fung, through the kind graces of the Fung Hon Chu Foundation have agreed to make this significant donation. Mrs Fung is an esteemed graduate prior to the Second World War and had been active in the Alumnae Association. We are extremely grateful for their generosity in making this project a reality which will benefit generations of students to come.
