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!
