The theme of the fashion design competition this year, organized by the Art Club, was Fairytale. 6 groups presented their designs on stage. Models wearing the splendid costumes walked confidently on the T-shaped runway, which was decorated by beautiful flowers. Each design showed the precious memories of the fairytales that the designer had read. The activity attracted a large audience and aroused their excitement. There were 4 prizes for this event: Overall Champion, 1st runner-up, 2nd runner-up and the Most Popular Award, which was received by the group that obtained the largest number of votes from the audience.

Apart from the Principal’s speech, the subject prizes, ECA & Service Honour Awards, PTA Scholarships and CCSC Alumni Foundation Fund Awards for the year 2016-2017 were presented by the Principal and Chairman of the Foundation Fund. The assembly was followed by a series of wonderful Christmas programmes.
