SCGS Speech Day 2024

The Speech Day of St. Clare’s Girls’ School held on May 24, 2024 was a joyous and celebratory event marking the achievements of the graduating class of 2024. The ceremony was graced by the presence of the distinguished guest of honour, Professor Alexander Wai Ping-kong, the President and Vice-Chancellor of Hong Kong Baptist University, along with the school supervisor, principal, managers, and members of the school’s sponsoring body, Incorporated Management Committee, Past Student Association, and Parent-Teacher Association.
The ceremony began with an address from the school supervisor Ms. Wong, who congratulated the graduates on their hard work and resilience over the years. Principal Mrs. Chan then delivered an inspiring speech that highlighted the graduates’ many accomplishments and reminded them of the unconditional love offered by their parents throughout their secondary school journey.
The guest of honour, Professor Wai, gave a particularly intriguing and awe-inspiring speech. He used examples of his own failed attempts during early inventions to encourage the graduates to never be afraid of trying and to persevere in order to make their dreams come true.
Besides, Carmen Cheng, the former Head Girl, delivered a vote of thanks Carmen eloquently expressed the class’s gratitude towards school supervisor, principal, teachers, school staff and their families for their unwavering support and guidance. On behalf of all the graduates, she also presented a lenticular painting to the alma mater, with images of a Clarian ascending the school entrance steps in uniform that was then turned into a graduation gown from a different angle of observation, symbolizing the six-year secondary school journey and the commencement of a new chapter in life.
Before the ceremony closed, a mesmerizing award-winning Chinese dance performance by the Chinese Dance Crew captivated the audience, demonstrating the students’ mastery of traditional movements and techniques. The School Choir and Orchestra then took the stage, delivering a polished musical performance of the composition “Flying Free” by Don Besig. The heartwarming ceremony came to a successful close which has demonstrated its commitment to nurturing well-rounded, accomplished Clarians who are poised to make a positive impact on the younger generations.
