264! Not a number you usually associate with Bingo but that is how many people attended the annual BINGO event last Friday night. It was a great night and my thanks to the PTA and staff who supported the event. The children clearly enjoyed themselves and everyone went home with a prize!
Chinese New Year is just around the corner and we have our Chinese Week Celebrations starting next Thursday. There are lots of events and trips organised so the children are sure to enjoy the celebrations leading up to CNY. A reminder that we finish at midday on February 15 (Thursday).

KGV Cross Country Challenge
Cross country running is not for the faint hearted but when you throw in a “jungle trail” it takes a special breed to compete, and that’s exactly what we had at the annual Cross Country Challenge at KGV.
At the event there were teams from Quarry Bay, Shatin Junior, Kowloon Junior, Beacon Hill, Discovery College, Renaissance, Clearwater Bay, Bradbury, Kennedy and Glenealy.
The Peak entered about 50 runners from Years 3 to 6 who demonstrated great pacing and their knowledge of racing strategies. Each race averaged between 50 and 70 runners with the Peak consistently placing in the top 25.
Congratulations to all the runners for a great day and particularly the following runners who were in the top ten in their respective race:
- Alastair Metson (9th)
- Emily Robinson (5th)
- Sophie Aranha (4th)
- Tristan Butteux (10th)
All the runners would like to thank their parents and other supporters who came on Saturday and cheered them on throughout their race.
