Dear Fellow Alumni,
In this issue of the newsletter, we feature an enlightening interview with Ms Katherine Cheung, Headmistress of SPCC Primary School. Ms Cheung shared with us her feelings and experience since taking up the new position in September 2021, and we also learnt of her passion for music and her dedication to shaping our primary school’s 30-year musical journey.
After three years of suspension, the ever-popular Summer oncerts returned with a blast and tickets were immediately sold out. Same as before, a major highlight of the Summer Concerts was the finale song: a world premiere of the song “愛地球” composed by alumnus cum SPCC Music Director Warren Lee (1994), performed jointly by the Alumni Choir and choir groups of our primary school and secondary school. A special acknowledgement was made on stage to our most senior choir member, our respected 97-year-old alumnus Wong Shiu Tsang (1947), for his unwavering effort and commitment. Despite all the changes and challenges we witnessed in the past few years, we always know that our love for our alma mater and music will remain unchanged.
Sport is a great way to connect alumni from different years and to foster fellowship. With the slight easing of the pandemic, we have recently resumed training for our dragon boat team and runners team. We have also had a good season of the inter-school alumni football league, and the seventh season of the alumni basketball league will commence shortly as well. If you are interested in joining any of these teams, please contact our Alumni Association office. Our Young Alumni subcommittee is also in plans to organise activities for our younger alumni in the first half of 2023.
Fall is here and it’s time for some outdoor exercises as well. Please take note that the opening ceremony of the annual Walkathon will be held at Morning Trail, The Peak on 13 November 2022. Participants have the flexibility to make their own arrangements to complete the walk during the two-week period from 13 November to 30 November 2022. For Christmas, let us come together and celebrate the birth of Christ at our Carol Service on 15 December 2022 at St John’s Cathedral. Details of both events can be found on the Alumni Association website.
Lastly, I would like to invite you all to follow SPCCAA on Facebook and Instagram, where we will continue to bring you the latest updates on our events and school-related matters. Stay tuned.
Best wishes for the holiday season.
