The results of the renowned Student of the Year Awards organized by the South China Morning Post were released and the prize-giving ceremony was held on 12-3-2016. Striving to do better and giving back to society are two important aspects of these prestigious Awards. Applications have to go through stringent selection, including face-to-face interviews with an expert panel of judges that comprises outstanding academic or category professionals. The awardees not only have to demonstrate a remarkable track record of achievements but should also be well-rounded students with qualities such as independent thinking, initiative, creativity, public spirit, commitment and resilience. Leadership, team spirit and collaborative skills, as well as giving back to the community, are also important judging criteria.
The school is very glad that two students won the championship in the Student of the Year Award 2015 in their categories and one student was placed top six in her category.
6H Lam Cho Yu Championship, Student of the Year – Sportsperson
4B Lam Tin Yan Grace Championship, Student of the Year – Linguist (Cantonese)
