Composer: Mr NG Lok-shing, Ronald
Lyricist: LAU Sin-ka of Diocesan Girls’ School
This motivational song, performed by LAM Ka-yee of Belilios Public School, LAU Sin-ka of Diocesan Girls’ School and TANG Sum-yu of Henrietta Secondary School, is produced to cheer for the 2023 HKDSE Examination candidates. In preparation for this performance, a pop singing programme was offered to these students, the winners of the SOW Creative Singing Contest (SOW) and the Creating • Appreciation • Performing Music Competition (CAP), to refine their singing skills under the guidance of a professional vocal coach. Sin-ka, who wrote the lyrics of the song, was also invited to participate in a lyrics writing programme conducted by a professional lyricist to enhance her lyrics writing skills.
CAP and SOW were two competitions organised by the Arts Education Section and the English Language Education Section of the Curriculum Development Institute, the Education Bureau (EDB) in the 2021/22 school year to nurture positive values and attitudes in students and support cross-curricular language learning. With the commissioned melodies provided by the EDB, student-participants wrote lyrics and performed their songs in Cantonese, Putonghua or English for CAP, and wrote lyrics and performed their songs in English for SOW.
