A Historic and Inspirational Achievement

2018-03-22

At about 4pm, 21 March 2018, the sweet but brisk sounding Master of Ceremony announced at the award ceremony of the 2018 Hong Kong Young Writers Award, “We have three entrants shortlisted for Group 1, non-fiction section, they are all from Regents Primary School of Shenzhen....” That was the moment we had been striving very hard for - a moment in the history of Regents!
“The winner is ... Zhong Yu. Congratulations!”
Zhong Yu, who comes from 3F; and the other shortlisted contestants are Chen Jun Dao (3F) and Xia Yuan Ming (1F).
Besides, essays from Archie Joshua Robinson (1A) and Wang Xuan Yue (4E) were also shortlisted in the Group 1 fiction section and Group 2 non-fiction section respectively.
However, the achievement of the English department is very much dwarfed by the achievement of the Art Department. With a whopping 8 paintings shortlisted (out of 10), it is surely a massive achievement!
Names of the art cover contestants are Hu Hao Wan (6B), Cai Ze Ying (6C), Zhao Yi Han(4D), Chen Wan Yu (3C), Ouyang Zi Dan (3F), Chi Ming Yun (3G), Sun Ju Ha (3H), Mao Ke Ying (2B).
Looking at the record, paintings from our school became champion in 2014, 2016 and 2017. That is a huge compliment to our Art teachers as our school’s paintings, undoubtedly, have become a dominant force in the ‘art cover’ section of the competition for at least the past 5 years!
The Hong Kong young Writers Award competition was launched in 2010. It comprises two main parts: writing and art book cover. Many elite English schools all over Hong Kong and China, many of them international schools, are taking part in the competition. In each section of the competition (including art book cover), only 1 winner is selected out of at least a few hundred entries. This is why it is such a difficult competition to become shortlisted, and win!
Naturally, seeds have been sown by our hardworking teachers. We wish the good work done could serve as an inspiration and encouragement to all our teachers to strive for a higher quality product of teaching and learning!
