CEP Set 3 (E) Task 1
East College celebrated its 50 th anniversary on 12 February, 2011, with one hundred past graduates and four guests attending. The school was originally located in Jordan, and there were only 5 teachers and 65 students in its first years. However, it moved to a larger building in Hung Hom in 1972, and there are 22 teachers and over 800 students now.
Our past graduates have done very well in many different areas. For example, Mr Jeremy Kwok won the Hong Kong Book of the Year Award in In addition, Ms Tracy Liu is the Secretary for Education while Ms Lucy Tung owns a successfully business called Hi Tech International. The celebration included a full stage programme. The special guests gave speeches about themselves and the school, and some of the past graduates and students sang the school song and other songs together. In addition, the principal presented awards to outstanding past graduates and past teachers. The programme ended after the Drama Club staged a musical to honour the celebration.
Besides the stage programme, visitors were also treated to two displays. There was a display of school annuals from past years and a display about the school’s history. The celebration would not have been possible without the hard work of the student volunteers. The Form 4 volunteers greeted the guests and designed the invitations. The Form 5 and Form 3 volunteers decorated the auditorium and the lobby. They were also responsible for the displays and the cloakroom.
We would like to thank all the student volunteers for their efforts in making the celebration a wonderful success.
