Class of 1957 – 60th Anniversary Reunion

This year marks the 60th anniversary reunion for the Class of 1957. 15 old girls from Australia, Canada, UK and the US joined 17 of their Hong Kong classmates in celebration. As some alumnae were accompanied by their spouses and siblings, over 40 participants kicked off the reunion with a welcome dinner at Hong Kong Club on 31st October 2016. The next three days were jam packed with activities including an overnight stay at Beas River Country Club, mahjong games, cycling, swimming, outings to Stanley market, Tse Shan Monastery and Chi Lin Nunnery.

The highlight of the reunion was on 4th November. The class commemorated 60 years of friendship by donating two benches to the School, one to DGS and one to DGJS. The benches are to remind young girls to be aware of others’ feelings, to show empathy, to give a helping hand, to lend an ear for their classmates and most importantly, to make long lasting friendships which they will treasure for life. All 32 alumnae were present at the ceremony on campus to witness five representatives handing over the gifts to Mrs. Stella Lau, Mrs. Emily Dai and Mrs. Annie Lee. A farewell dinner that night at the Kowloon Cricket Club drew an end to the reunion celebration.

As time passes, many of their classmates are not as physically fit as they used to be. Nonetheless, the class spirit remains high.They look forward to many more reunions ahead to reminisce about their good old school days and have a good laugh!

50th Reunion Class of 1966

In celebration of their 50th reunion, the class of 1966 old girls in Hong Kong organized a series of events for their overseas classmates. The first round kicked off with a school campus tour, lunch at Eaton Hotel, and the evening highlight of the DOGA Annual Dinner on 28th October 2016.

For those overseas girls that missed the first round of fun, a campus tour, lunch and another reunion dinner at the Chariot Club were held on 4th November. A guided tour to Chi Lin Monastery and Nan Lin Garden followed on 5th November.

The final event was on 6th November. The day began with a guided tour to two famous spots of The Chinese University of Hong Kong — the Promenade, and One with Nature at New Asia College. A sumptuous meal at the Staff Lounge at Lee Woo Sing College concluded the morning. The reunion celebration came to a delightful end after a post lunch guided tour to Tze Shan Monastery. With friendship so much rekindled, talks for another reunion overseas next year are already in progress.

40th Reunion for the Class of 1976

The Class of 1976 kicked off their reunion on 28th October 2016 with Morning Assembly followed by a visit to the Tsz Shan Monastery. The highlight was a walk around the magnificent 76m tall Guanying. The day ended with DOGA Annual Dinner and a school visit was organised for the next morning. Celebration continued on 31st October. 16 classmates went on a 2-day excursion to Lantau Island. They strolled around Tai O fishing village, shopped for local products, and had drinks at the Heritage Hotel before going to the Auberge Discovery Bay Hotel. On the second day, some of them hiked up to the Trappist Monastery. That evening, a class reunion dinner was held at the United Services Recreation Club where 40 classmates and two teachers, Mrs A Yau and Ms T Kan, attended. Friendships were renewed and there was great camaraderie.

A big thank you to their class representative, Lily Wong, and reunion working group (Anna Wong, Karin Hoo, Linda Fung, Sharon Cheng, Susanna Luk and Winnie Kwok) for doing an amazing job planning and organizing this reunion.
