St Paul's School (Lam Tin) recently celebrated its 45th anniversary by holding a thanksgiving mass, a dance performance, a mural painting competition and a prize presentation.

We also hosted a four-day art and needlework exhibition. There were all sorts of great art on display, including impressionist and surrealist paintings.

The poster for the exhibition featured a zebra designed by S6 student Joanne Yu. It was formed out of paint brushes, sewing needles and embroidery thread.

In the exhibition hall, eye-catching paintings by S3 students were displayed. "Nowadays, people are too busy to stop and think, sparing no time to appreciate things around them," said art teacher Ms Shum.

"We tried to use these exhibits to impress the visitors [and help them] discover the beauty of this busy, modern world."

Another exhibit, simply called "See", was an installation of individually decorated plastic bottles. The 408 bottles created quite a spectacle. It was a chance for lots of students to get involved, too.

And last but not least, the needlework exhibits included both traditional Chinese and modern designs. Visitors were impressed by teddy bears, cushion covers, coin bags and pencil cases made by lower form students.
