Cheers, Courage and Challenge
In God’s love and blessings, our Annual Swimming Gala was held successfully at the Kowloon Tsai Swimming Pool on 10 October with utmost vitality and appreciation. The morning which was much looked forward to was blessed with balmy morning breezes. About 130 contestants took the courage to make their best endeavors to unleash their potential to meet the challenge.
United in love, the Cheering Teams of all Houses gave their hearty support to all swimmers with wondrous movements and thundering cheers throughout the day. The prize-presentation ceremony was a rousing climax of the day. The House of Peace clinched the Overall Championship whereas The House of Praise won the Cheering Team Award. Not only did the House members celebrate with joy the achievements of their hard work, every Holy Familian also shared their pride.
The special occasion came to a beautiful close with the words of encouragement from our guest of honour, Mrs Ina Li, the Chairperson of the Parent-Teacher Association. Her experience of championing trampoline and swimming competitions enlightened us to be tough and strong in learning and training. Holy Familians also learned from Mrs Li that good sportsmanship means being able to win without gloating, and being able to lose gracefully by respecting one’s opponents. We should always try our best, stay composed and let God do the rest. This precious message leads us all to work in accordance with the belief of our Foundress, Let us Trust in God. May this motto be the guide of the upcoming sports events in this blissful academic year.
