Eleven records broken at 165th Anniversary Swimming Gala

The 165th Anniversary Swimming Gala was held at the Victoria Park Swimming Pool on 8th September 2016.

Amidst rapturous applause from the cheering teams of the six houses, the competitions took place one after another. This year's Swimming Gala saw splendid performances from our young swimmers with a total of 11 records being broken.

We were greatly delighted to have Mrs. Yvonne Chan, former Headmistress of St. Paul’s College Primary School, as our guest of honour, who shared the joy and excitement with us together at the event. 

After all the races had taken place, Mrs Chan was invited to present the major awards, including the Inter-House Overall Championship trophy to this year’s winner – Oak House.

The Swimming Gala ended on a high note with the students singing the College Song and the houses cheering all together, exhibiting once again our strong brotherhood spirit.

Listed below are the new school records and the results of the Inter-House Championships:
