The 2nd Shuqun International Schools Volleyball Championships was held in Shuqun Secondary from 19 to 22 November. As part of the school's niche programme in volleyball, the tournament was organised to foster healthy competition and friendly interactions between local and international schools through the sport. The invited teams represented some of the best volleyball school teams in the region, including the Hong Kong Youth team, Malaysia's Selangor Youth Team, Malaysia's Foon Yew High School, and the Thailand's Bangkok Sports School.
Over the 3 days, the students witnessed an exciting tournament with high quality volleyball on display. After a tough competition against taller and more experienced opponents, our boys team emerged 4th in the tournament with Selangor Boys Team clinching the Championship. The Bangkok Sports School emerged the Girls Champion.
In keeping with the school's goals to develop character through volleyball, great sportsmanship was demonstrated throughout the games. Students had a chance to interact and learn more about one another both on and off the courts. In addition, as part of engaging and giving back to the community under the school's SE2RVE2 programme (Shuqunites Engage and Excel thRough Volleyball Exposure and Experience), a Primary school tournament was also held for invited students from Nan Hua, Qifa, Woodlands and Anderson Primary where they could learn from the seniors and coaches from the international teams.
The finals and the closing ceremony on 22 Nov, which was held together with the school's Open House, was graced by Mr Desmond Chin, our Chairman of Shuqun Advisory Committee.
We would like to thank all the schools for their participation, the students and alumni for their work as liaison officers and officials, and look forward to subsequent editions of this Championships in the coming years.
