SPC 170th Anniversary Celebrations Kick Off with Joy and Pride!

The campus was buzzing with joy and excitement yesterday morning. The whole school gathered together in the corridors and the lower playground for the College 170th Anniversary kick-off ceremony.

The joyful occasion involved all teachers and students, office and support staff, and also our janitors. They were joined by College Council members, guests, alumni and members of the College community.

The kick-off ceremony featured a photoshoot of our ‘big SPC family’ (simultaneously with drone aerial filming) and the singing of the College Song. It was broadcast live for friends and alumni of SPC around the globe on the SPC Alumni Association Facebook page.

The long-awaited moment came when, amid a burst of confetti, Principal Dennis Yuen declared the 170th Anniversary celebrations open.

Two celebratory events took place on the heels of the kick-off ceremony. Our guests and alumni were invited to the Bonham Road entrance to view an exclusive SPC-themed bus, which was specially scheduled to drive slowly past the College.

A group of guests, alumni and students then went on a special tram ride. Again, the tram was decorated with creative graphics and designs that highlight our anniversary theme: ‘Celebrate Our Heritage; Build our Future’.

The specially designed tram and bus for the anniversary of the College will be rolling on their usual routes for four weeks and eight weeks respectively. Do not miss the opportunity to hop on, enjoy the exclusive SPC journey and take some selfies and snapshots along the ride!
