Dear Parents,

We are heading into our final four weeks of this academic year and we have been busy planning for the year ahead. The children have continued to work hard in school and beyond, including at sporting events. This week we had teams competing in the Kowloon Cricket Tournament and the Athletics Meet at Tai Po. There was also the popular PTA Quiz yesterday – thanks to the teachers for volunteering to run this event. Tonight is our Summer Music Concert – it will begin in the playground with the Samba Percussion Group leading parents into the hall, so we are hoping that today’s rain showers pass over quickly. I look forward to seeing many of you at this event.

File_000On Wednesday 25th May the Beacon Hill cricket team played their first tournament of the year. For many of the team it was their first time playing competitive cricket. As the tournament progressed we improved in every match. I was most impressed with our bowling and fielding in the tournament and Mikail was chosen as our player of the tournament as he was our most consistent player. Thanks to the parents who came to watch.

On Thursday 26th May 40 students from Year 5 and Year 6 took part in a friendly athletic meet with RCHK and Harrow. The students got to experience competing in various track and field events. Each student tried their best and represented the school admirably. As it was a friendly competition no results were kept. The highlight of the day were the relays where both the Year 5 and 6 girl relay teams were just pipped on the line. Thanks to Miss Cheung for assisting and coaching on the day.
