The Report of Table-tennis Team 1997-1998
This academic year was, as it ever had been, a meaningful time for our table-tennis team since we will be promoted to Division 1 next year.
At the beginning of this year, we needed to face a serious problem ---- no appropriate place to practise. However, with the help of Mr. Tang Wai Choi and financial support from our school, we were able to train in Kowloon Park Indoor-game Hall every Wednesday and Friday. In order to get a better result, in addition to having a suitable place, our school employed a well-known coach from the Hong Kong Table-Tennis Association, Lau Bit Sing, to improve our skills.
Hard word and strenuous endeavours equipped us well enough for the Inter-School Table-Tennis Competition. During the competition, being devoted to compete against the other schools and with our confidence and ambition, we won the Overall 1st-runner-up in Division 2. Our A, B and C grades performed will in the first round and easily entered the final. In the final, our C grade succeeded in beating the other teams in every battle and became the champion. Nevertheless, our A and B grades could not present themselves as well as in the first round, we came 2nd-runner-up in B grade and 3rd-runner-up in A grade.
Besides, in the Inter-School Single Competition ---- which included all schools from Division 1 to Division3, although our A grade and B grade members were busy preparing for the public examinations and did not participate in this competition, our C grade member, Lee Pui Chung, Breading through all difficulties, was crowned the champion.
As a whole, we are all elated by the remarkable achievement which we have made. On top of our success this year, the best thing our members can do is keep on practising, I trust we will do better next year.
All in all, on behalf of all the members, I would like to express our sincere gratitude to our Principal, Mr. Norman So, and Assistant Principal, Mr. Yue Poon Leung, for giving us tremendous support. Moreover, I am grateful to our Supervisors, Mr. Tang Wai Choi, Mr. Lee Kwok Keung, Mr. Lam Wing Hung And Mr. Ho Fu Kuen, for their guidance and support throughout the year.
