Diocesan Choral Society (DCS) has always been at the forefront of producing outstanding choral music. In July this year, we will be challenging ourselves and participating in the Tokyo International Choir Competition. We are delighted to be one of the 8 choirs selected from a pool of 46 choirs to compete in the final round in the contemporary music category. Through competing at an international competition, DCS not only wishes to attain new artistic heights, but also broaden our horizons and share our passion for choral music with people around the world. This will be preceded by our annual concert held in Hong Kong.
The more love we share, the more love we receive! Wave 5 Foundation cordially invites you to support our new Community Song music album “Waves of Love”. This is our second album since 2012, and this time it comes in Mandarin and Cantonese versions! We hope in our 10th anniversary we can bring love and positive energy back to Hong Kong.

Do you want to help our research into the dangers posed to Chinese white dolphin from heavy marine traffic? Do you want to play a part in protecting their core habitat? We have launched a crowdfunding appeal to help us deploy nine hydrophones from April 2018. The underwater microphones will be placed around Tai O and nearby waters, one of the dolphins remaining core habitats, with the data gathered helping our work to lobby the government for more marine protected areas. There are only 47 Chinese white dolphins remaining in Hong Kong western waters. Habitat destruction from coastal reclamation and busy marine traffic are the top two threats. Make a difference for this iconic species today. *The same campaign has also been launched on a WWF-Hong Kong minisite.
In 2017 we got negative scores in the Odyssey of the Mind competition, but 7 of us did not give up. We participated in the Odyssey of the mind again this year and got the 1st runner up in problem 1 division 3. We were qualified to represent Hong Kong to take part in the world final in the USA. We will redesign the solution for the competition for the world final. We believe we can do better every time. However, participating in the world final requires a huge budget which we, students from grassroots families, can't afford.
We all claimed that we are human beings; but the fact is that until we realize the ultimate truth in our lives, we cannot be actual humans. We are being constrained in many ways while only thought could escape from this restriction.
The BIG DAY, to be held on 5th May 2018, is the largest volunteer event organized by Ching Wan Society. Our main goal is to enroll as many as our volunteer members to the people in need in the society. During the BIG DAY, we will be visiting 9 different charity organizations and serving over 200 people in needs. These include elderlies, children in need and people with disabilities. Throughout the day, our volunteers will perform a number of activities, including balloon twisting, making crafts and playing group games, to bring joy and interact with these individuals.
Dipson wants to grow up to be an international wrestling champion. The slight primary three student, who studies at Heaven Hill Academy in Nepal, was inspired by a video he saw on YouTube. But his school only has one computer, which is barely enough for every child to access knowledge and the world beyond their own—a world that we take for granted. Join us on our mission to purchase laptops for Dipson and the other children of Heaven Hill, so they can grow up in a world beyond their own, and take their dreams beyond the horizon.
