The Annual Speech Day 2017-18 was successfully held on 30 November 2018. We were honoured to have invited our alumnus, Professor Leung Pak Heng George, the Associate Professor of the Department of Pharmacology and Pharmacy of The University of Hong Kong, to be our guest-of-honour to address the ceremony as well as present certificates and prizes.
Professor Leung's studies in Wong Shiu Chi Secondary School began in 1987 and he was once the Head Prefect of our school. Upon graduation, he went on to obtain his Bachelor's Degree of Pharmacy from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He then spent the following years furthering his studies in the same university. Because of his impressive research, he was the recipient of the Young Physiologist Scheme of the Physiological Society of the United Kingdom in 1999. Besides, he was directly admitted to the Doctor of Philosophy Degree Programme without finishing the one for his Master's degree. Having earned his Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Physiology, he completed his post-doctoral training at the prestigious The John Hopkins University in the United States of America. There is no doubt that Professor Leung excels in his academic pursuits.
Since 2003, Professor Leung has joined the University of Hong Kong and is currently an Associate Professor of the Department of Pharmocology and Pharmacy. At university, he leads a hectic life, conducting research, teaching and performing administrative work. Despite his busy schedule, he always remains committed and devoted. In 2006, he set up the Bachelor of Pharmacy Degree Programme and has led its development since then. Meanwhile, he also serves as the Chief Examiner of Pharmocology in Medicine, Nursing and Chinese Medicine Programmes.
Apart from playing an important role in the University of Hong Kong, Professor Leung is active in local, regional and international professional bodies. Locally, he was the external and internal examiners of 33 postgraduate students and is the Chairman of the Examination Committee of the Pharmacy and Poison Board of Hong Kong. Regionally, he is a grant reviewer of the Science and Technology Development Fund in Macau. Internationally, he is a grant reviewer of the research grant proposals for the National Medical Research Council of Singapore and a member of the Editorial Board of a number of journals, including Cardiovascular Pharmacology. In 2009, Professor Leung's outstanding teaching was recognised and he was awarded the Teaching Medal by the Faculty of Medicine. He is definitely a role model for his junior schoolmates to follow.
In his congratulatory address, Professor Leung inspired our students and graduates by sharing with them the elements contributing to his success. He encouraged our students to enjoy what they do, be diligent and positive, and treat every day as a learning opportunity. He also stressed the importance of lifelong learning and having wide vision. Last but not least, he strongly encouraged our students and graduates to be a good person and build a personal character of integrity, respect, care and self-reflection.
At last, Professor Leung ended his speech by expressing his warm gratitude to the audience. With his expertise and extensive experiences, his speech has inspired and enlightened our graduates a lot.

Grey mullet is originally seawater fish. About one hundred years ago, the fishermen in Hong Kong began breeding them to become freshwater fish. Yuen Long became the largest base of the freshwater fishing industry in Hong Kong. Among all the freshwater fishes, grey mullet is the most important and valuable species in Hong Kong. Five senior form students participated in the 7th Inter-school Competition of Project Learning on Hong Kong's History and Culture, co-organized by the Hong Kong Museum of History and the Hong Kong Institute for Promotion of Chinese Culture. They studied the development of Yuen Long freshwater fishing industry. Their study report won the Champion in this competition. The list of members is as follows:

Pokfulam Village is a multi-clan village with a history of over 300 years. It is possibly one of the oldest and last surviving historical villages on Hong Kong Island. It is believed that the ancestors of the village were the migrants from the coastal areas on the mainland.
Dairy Farm played a key role in the history of Pokfulam Village. Sir Patrick Manson founded Dairy Farm in 1886 with five Chinese businessmen in order to provide fresh milk to foreign residents by breeding cattle locally. The establishment of Dairy Farm turned Pokfulam Village from a rural area to a composite one for commercial, residential and agricultural uses. Because of the religious development of Catholic Church and the extensive development of French Mission, Pokfulam became a hub for locals and foreigners. Douglas Castle, Nazareth House, Taikoolau and the Bethanie are the historic buildings near Pokfulam Village with distinctive western cultural elements.
Although Pokfulam Village is largely influenced by western culture, the cultural resources in the village are of traditional Chinese style. These unique traditional customs are well conserved. There are intangible and tangible elements such as the Li Ling Divine Pagoda, Li Ling Divine Festival and its ritual, Fire Dragon Dance at Mid-autumn Festival. The craftsmanship in crafting the fire dragon has been passed down for hundreds of years. We Five junior form students have made a 15 minutes video titled “Living History - The study of Pokfulam Village” to investigate the vivid history of this last surviving traditional village. The film won the 1st runner-up of the Junior Section (Multi-media Production) in the “7th Inter-school Competition of Project Learning on Hong Kong's History and Culture” co-organized by the Hong Kong Museum of History and the Hong Kong Institute for Promotion of Chinese Culture. The list of members is as follows:
So Yui 3E (2017-2018) Wu Ka Ying 3E (2017-2018) Wong Wai Ki 3E (2017-2018) Ng Chak Man 3E (2017-2018) Choy Sui Ning 3E (2017-2018)
Lau Fau Shan in Deep Bay is a tourist attraction which is famous for its oyster cuisines. About two centuries ago, the Tang clan in Ha Tsuen began to farm oysters in Lau Fau Shan. Mr. Tang Chak Heng leased No. 1 oyster bed from the hand of the colonial government. He developed Lau Fau Shan from a small fishing settlement to a prospered fishing village. After the Second World War, the migration of Shajing oystermen further enhanced the oyster farming industry. The development of Lau Fau Shan oyster farming industry reflects the economic and political relationship between China and Hong Kong.
In the last school year, five junior form students conducted a project on the development of Lau Fau Shan oyster farming industry. They completed a study report and entered the 7th Inter-school Competition of Project Learning on Hong Kong's History and Culture co-organized by the Hong Kong Museum of History and the Hong Kong Institute for Promotion of Chinese Culture. They won the 1st runner-up in the competition. The list of members is as follows:

It is my honour to be one of the medalists in Physics in the Hong Kong Polytechnic University Secondary School Mathematics and Science Competition (SSMSC) 2018.
I would like to express my thankfulness towards my Physics teacher, Mr. Yam, for putting much effort to train us before the competition so that we could be more familiar with the questions and better prepared for answering those questions. At first, I was a bit nervous since the questions in the past papers were rather challenging. It took a long time to solve those questions and even worse, we could not get the right answers sometimes. However, I was shocked when I saw the paper in the competition. It was much easier than I expected. My instinct warned me not to be too careless because of the easier questions, so I was very focused when attempting the paper, trying my very best to avoid traps in the questions. Fortunately, I won a medal in the competition at the end.
At last, I want to thank everyone who have helped me for the competition and the school for giving me the opportunity to join the competition and learn from the process.

It is my honour to be one of the participants in the Secondary School Mathematics and Science Competition organized by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. I am delighted to have won the High Distinction both in Physics and Chemistry.
In the first instance, I would like to thank our Physics teacher, Mr. Yam, and Chemistry teacher, Dr. Chu, for spending extra time giving us training and teaching us patiently. In the Physics competition training, not only did Mr Yam teach us to do the past papers of the competition, but he also upgraded the level of difficulty of the questions. We could challenge ourselves and equip ourselves in a bid to compete with the elites from other schools. In the Chemistry training, Dr. Chu taught us a few chapters in the textbook since these chapters which were covered in the competition had not been taught. However, the time for training was limited, so we needed to do the past papers by ourselves.
In fact, I was not confident about getting good results in the competition. Although around 70% of the paper was set based on the HKDSE curriculum, the questions of the competition were much more difficult than those of the DSE. I know I am not clever and I can catch up with others with my diligence and dedication. Therefore, I strived to excel in the competition. Eventually, I was pleased that I was rewarded with the High Distinction in Physics and Chemistry.
