Local fencing coach Wai Yu Kwan visited school yesterday to introduce some of our Y7, 8 and 9 students to the sport of ‘Fencing.’

Fencing is an organised sport involving the use of a sword – épée, foil, or sabre, for attack and defense according to set movements and rules. Although the use of swords dates to prehistoric times and swordplay to ancient civilisations, the organised sport of fencing began only at the end of the 19th century.
