CSS students take place in the HK round of the World Scholar’s Cup
The Hong Kong round of the World Scholar’s Cup (WSC) took place on 18 and 19 April, 2015 at Po Leung Kuk Choi Kai Yau School. Our school sent three teams to take part.

Our teams competed with teams from other International schools such as Chinese International School, Harrow, ESF schools, and other elite local schools such as Marymount, Wan Yan College and St. Stephen’s Girls’ College in four different events: Team debate, Collaborative writing, Scholar’s Challenge and Scholar’s Bowl.
Some students considered their participation as life-transforming experience. Skyler Do (F4 JA) said, “I can honestly say that WSC has changed my life. It was exceedingly difficult, and most of all, it was fun. This was pure, wholehearted learning at it's finest. It was the intellectuals' sporting event. I had never been a part of anything remotely this exciting, and never expected to find it in an academic event. It was something I have never expected to gain from academics.”
All three teams have successfully qualified and are invited to take part in the Global Round of the World Scholar’s Cup in Kuala Lumpur from 22nd June to 26th June, 2015. The Global Round will host 2,500 students from 40 countries. http://www.scholarscup.org/global-round/
