The announcement of this year's Honours List and Justices of the Peace (JPs) was made on 22nd July. Our Supervisor Dr. Lam Tai Fai, who has been contributing to society, was honoured with Gold Bauhinia Star, together with our School Manager Prof. WAI Ping-kong appointed as the Justice of the Peace and four other outstanding alumni receiving other titles this year. Top fencer and the first Hong Kong Olympic medalist (Fencing) Edgar Cheung Ka-long earned Silver Bauhinia Star. Grace Lau Mo Sheung, karateka and Bronze medalist in Tokyo Olympics, obtained the Medal of Honour. Cyclist Lee Sze Wing and table tennis player Tong Chi Man received the Chief Executive's Commendation for Community Service.
Dr. Lam has been dedicated to developing local education and the athletic aspect. Apart from being the founder and Supervisor of our College, he also serves the community as the Chairperson of PolyU Council and the Chairman of HKSI Board. Prof. Wai is the President and Vice-Chancellor of HKBU. He has devoted himself to innovative technology and led PolyU to accomplish projects with astonishing results. Edgar crowned ‘God of Fencing’ with his remarkable achievements in Tokyo Olympics and different championships and tournaments, making history in local athletic development.
Grace, on top of her exceptional performance in last year’s Olympics, continues proving her ability by gaining her place on the podium in various international competitions. Sze Wing, despite being in her early 20s, can already stand out from her competitors in various large-scale events. We surely believe that Sze Wing will achieve more in all her upcoming endeavours. Chi Man, the rising star in Hong Kong Team demonstrated his capacity and excellent skills with his victory in five consecutive games.
Congratulations to Dr. Lam, Prof. Wai and our former students!
