For the Senior Section, four S5 students were awarded for their 24-page statistical report about the readiness of healthcare system for silver tsunami.

Prize for the Best Graphical Presentation of Statistics
Apart from the trophies, our school name will be carved onto the “Memorable Shield for Champion School” which will be kept by the winning school for one year as a tradition of this competition. Since the memorable shield is fully carved with the names of champion schools and SPKC is the most frequent winner in the recent years, this memorable shield will be kept at our campus permanently. It is a great honor and recognition to Pooikeinians who have made continuous engagement in this inter-school competition. In particular, our students have made extraordinary efforts to overcome the challenges of social distancing during the suspension period of face-to-face lessons due to the pandemic outbreak. All the team members have collaborated closely to complete their sophisticated statistical researches by using instant messaging technology and web conference meeting.
In the past 14 years, our school has submitted 23 statistical projects and won 37 prestigious awards including 10 Champions as well as 10 Prizes for the Best Graphical Presentation of Statistics. Our students’ analytical mindset and presentation skills are polished through preparing for their statistical researches, final interviews and oral defense every year. This inter-school competition has become a unique tradition and invaluable learning experiences for different generations of Pooikeinians.
