The Raimondi College 50th Anniversary Ball, held by the Raimondi Alumni Association on December 6, 2008, at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Wanchai, Hong Kong, was a huge success. Some photos from the event have begun appearing on Flickr. Take a look (see any face you recognize?) and feel the festivities!
In keeping with our tradition, this past summer we entered the annual inter-school soccer tournament. Four teams competed: Joint Salesian Schools (the host of this year), Raimondi College, St. Joseph College and Wah Yan Schools. All fundraising proceeds were donated to Project Rwanda; we are proud to report that Raimondians contributed $1,016 toward the good cause (while the host team Joint Salesian Schools raised $4,800 for a total of about $6,800).
The tournament was held at Bayview Reservoir Park on July 8. The weather was not so great in the beginning, but the raining stopped and the the soccer field soon heated up with much ball-kicking action! This year we benefited from the joining of a couple younger team-mates, whose energy helped seal our victory. After a series of games with little rests in between, we came out champions of the event, winning over St. Joseph 4-3, beating Joint Salesians 2-0, and finally tying with Wah Yan with no goals from either team. Perhaps by the end of the tournament, every one was a little exhausted?
Many thanks to the players, the sponsors, and the spectators who came out to cheer on our teams. As this year’s champions, we will be hosting the event next year. Hopefully we will have a even better tournament next year! If you have any ideas to help improve the event (suggestions for charity causes, for example), please do not hesitate to let our Sports Convenor Martin Cheng know! See you next year!
Pictures from the tournament are now online! Read more for the complete gallery.

The last annual dinner (held on November 11, 2005 at Man Woo Seafood Restaurant) was a great success. A record number of members (some brought their families) showed up to meet old friends, watch slideshows of our school’s past, talk to teachers, and enjoy the food. Read more to view all the photos.
