Sha Tin College’s first ever Spirit Week took place the week before Christmas break. Organized and designed by the school’s Student Council, Spirit Week consisted of five themed days: Matching Monday, Tourist Tuesday, Wacky Wednesday, Throwback Thursday, and Festive Friday.
Spirit Week started off with a bang; students who took part in Matching Monday proudly donned matching outfits with their friends. Posing against the backdrop of the photobooth stationed in the car park with student council handmade props in their hands, various students posed and pointed as the media team photographers flashed their cameras.
Tourist Tuesday witnessed students bearing selfie sticks and safari hats; some students dove into the spirit of Spirit Week and arrived at school with luggages instead of school bags.
The silliest of the days took place on Wacky Wednesday; students sported accessories ranging from wigs to ski goggles.
On Throwback Thursday, various older students were seen wearing their old school uniform while younger students were seen sporting low rise jeans, baseball caps and oversized graphic tees.
Spirit Week ended on a high note with Festive Friday. The Christmas and school spirit in the air were self-evident; students wore colors of red, green, and white; matching Christmas sweaters were worn with friends; Santa hats and reindeer ears were stuck onto students’ heads.
“I’m super happy that so many students went above and beyond to dress up for the various themes,” said Michelle Geng of 12P1, Student Council secretary. ‘It was exciting seeing everyone in the photo booth area!”
All in all, Spirit Week was a week-long event that encapsulated the very essence of Sha Tin College: a place where students unite under their shared enthusiasm to contribute to the development of the school community. A big thank you to the Student Council who planned and coordinated the week!
