The Ground-breaking ceremony of our school annex was held on 22 August 2007. It was officiated by Ms Ip Ling Bik, Principal Assistant Secretary of Education Bureau, Mrs. Angel Lau, Chairperson of Po Leung Kuk, Mrs. Pauline Ngan, Vice Chairperson of Po Leung Kuk, Ms Cho Kam Lam and Mrs. Wai Mei Lee, former Chairpersons of Po Leung Kuk, Mr. Albert Ngan, Director of Po Leung Kuk, Ms Grace Wu, Chief Executive Officer of Po Leung Kuk, Mr. Douglas Lee, Director of Andrew Lee King Fun & Associates Architects Limited, and Mr. Law Kwok Hung, Director of Yu Wing Construction & Investment Company Limited. Dignitaries and guests were invited to attend the occasion in celebrating the to-be-completed swimming pool complex as another milestone of our school.
In her speech, Ms Ip demonstrated her joy and thankfulness for being invited to be the guest of honor of the ceremony, which symbolized a development of new era of our school. Since the school commencement, the well-round education and sound learning environment has made Ngan Po Ling College a quality DSS school, renowned among parents and members in the community. She hoped that the construction of new annex would facilitate the nurture of all-round individuals, so that the future grown-ups could make valuable contribution in the society.
Soon after the religious worship and lion dance, there were solo singing, yang qi solo, piano solo and marching band performed by our students. The musical performances were so fascinating and impressive that the event was ended in loud applause. For the last session, Mr. Lee of Andrew Lee King Fun & Associates Architects Limited made a presentation for introducing the layout of our new annex. Its completion in 2009 will definitely make our campus more ideal for teaching and learning.
