Happy news from the 2017/18 Hong Kong Budding Poets (English) Award - our poetic boy Yiding Song 6C was awarded a GOLD Award for his poem "Curse of Existence", under his chosen theme "Me, the Earth, the Universe", at the Hang Seng Management College this afternoon.
Yiding was among the four prestigious GOLD Awardees, followed by 4 SILVER, 4 BRONZE and 8 Honourable Mention awards in the primary school category.
This competition is co-organised by EDB and Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education. We regard it as one of the top poetry contests in Hong Kong for children as they attract esteemed schools to take part every year, producing excellent poems. We are very proud that we have been having an awardee for a few years in a row and this time, Yiding even earned the top prize! Congratulations! See his live performance of his poem below:
To double the happiness, students from YWC, Vincent Cheng (S.3) and Matt Leung (S.2) received their GOLD and SILVER Awards respectively in the ceremony. Both of them graduated from YWPS and Matt, like Yiding, was in the P.6 enhancement class before he graduated!
Principal Cheng of YWC also attended the ceremony and was kind enough to ask for a happy selfie!
Congratulations to all again and let's keep our poetry achievements as a tradition!
