A friendly basketball competition with Ng Yuk Secondary School was hosted on the 25 June. 40 students from NYSS and Island School Year 7 to Year 10 students participated in the game. There was a series of activities, including half court games, a best trick shot competition, and the game “Killer”.
The students had an amazing time and Hannah Lee said: “I think the students all enjoyed themselves and this was an event that helped to bring our schools together. They showed great sportsmanship and we are all very proud of them.”
Community Imaginings, also known as Sakura, is a project started by Ida Tsui and Hannah Lee (12W) that aims to build strong, authentic connections with the local community with the partnership with a team of students from NYSS. A Community Magazine will be produced at the end of 2019, including student submissions such as literary works, artworks and photos, as a celebration of all Community Partnership endeavours throughout the year.
