Graduation Ceremony 2012 Featured

On 6 July, our S6 and F7 graduates received their certificates from Ms Barbara Mok, a distinguished alumna, Partner of Minter Ellison Lawyers, one of the leading law firms.

On this auspicious occasion, Ms Mok imparted on the subject of respect for differences.  The established legal consultant took great lengths to refresh our memory of the atrocities humans have committed since early days of our history.  She pointed out how essential it is to examine our intolerance and prejudice against people of different races, religions, health conditions, sexual inclinations, colours, age groups and political agenda.  There is no excuse for us to commit even a hint of rudeness if we wish to recreate a city of acceptance.

The scholarship recipients and prize winners in the audience came up to the stage to receive their trophies and awards one-by-one, attracting snapshots from their parents and thrills from their friends.  Everyone celebrated their zeal for developing their talents.

Among the distinguished guests who attended the event to share the joy with the achievers were Sr Agnes Law, our Supervisor, Ms Teresina Chan, the Chairman of Alumnae Association, Ms Amy Yuen, Chairlady of the Parent-Teacher Association, Mrs Connie Lau, School Manager, and Ms Ho Pui King, Senior School Development Officer from the Education Bureau.  Mr Jens Rösler, Deputy Director Head of Language Department, Goethe Institut Hong Kong presented scholarships to three outstanding students doing German in school.

An the end, our School Dance Group and SHCC String Orchestra gave us a vibrant finale with colourful shades of pink and notes of music.
