SHCC Swimming Gala 2012-13 Featured

Against the silky blue horizon Sacred Heartists celebrated their talents in swimming on 24 October at the Victoria Park Swimming Pool. The athletes wasted no time shooting off the starting point, diving deep into the pool, as if they were born sea creatures.

On the spectator stand, the diehard fans and house members roared and cheered along their way. The six houses have long been recruiting potential competitors, training the cheering teams at lunch, boosting morale at rehearsal sessions these few weeks. To them, the annual sports event was but an occasion for cultivating a sense of belonging among the junior form members, in addition to introducing new leaders to other members.

Ms Sherry Tsai, a household name known for her contribution to Asian Games and an Olympics delegate of Hong Kong Team, addressed the school at the closing ceremony. To the young prominent athlete, sports is not about records but dedication to one’s interest. She attributes her accomplishments to the zeal for swimming, perseverance and continuous effort.

Among the guests of honour are Chairman of the Alumnae Association, Ms Teresina Chan and Chairman of the Parent-Teacher Association, Ms Amy Yuen. Sr Agnes, our School Supervisor, led the closing prayer and gave away major prizes to winning Houses. cialis
