Issuing of Commemorative Stamps

香港郵政今日(十月二十五日)宣布,一張以「英華書院二百周年校慶」為題的郵票小型張及相關集郵品於十一月九日(星期五)推出發售。
 
英華書院一八一八年在馬六甲創立,一八四三年遷至香港,是香港現存歷史最悠久的學校。書院命名為「英華」,有肩負帶動中西文化交流重任的意思。
 
英華書院與漢學、華語翻譯、基督教在華傳播、香港西式教育、華文報刊出版及印刷方面的發展息息相關。時至今日,作為一所以傳揚福音為己任的學校,英華書院的辦學宗旨是提供優質教育,讓年輕人在各方面得到均衡發展,成為才德兼備的好公民。二○一八年適逢英華書院創校二百周年,香港郵政特別發行一張郵票小型張,紀念這個重要的里程碑。
 
郵票小型張以「承傳使命 皕載自強」為題,展示書院不同時期的校舍。「皕」是二百的意思;郵票小型張上以小孔拼出「皕」字,呼應書院二百周年校慶的主題。郵票中的外籍人士是書院創辨人馬禮遜牧師,他是首位來華的基督傳教士。
 
各郵政局明日(十月二十六日)起發售正式首日封,每個售價一元三角。郵票及相關集郵品同日起在郵政總局、尖沙咀郵政局、荃灣郵政局、沙田中央郵政局和屯門中央郵政局展出。另外,各集郵局明日至十一月一日期間接受自備封蓋銷服務的申請。
 
欲知今次發行的紀念郵票及相關集郵品的詳情,可透過香港郵政網頁www.hongkongpost.hk或香港郵政流動應用程式取覽。

特別郵票 — 「英華書院二百周年校慶」

來源: 香港郵政

「轉載」香港郵政將於十一月九日(星期五)以「英華書院二百周年校慶」為題,發行一款郵票小型張及相關集郵品。

英華書院於1818年在馬六甲創立,1843年遷至香港,翌年在士丹頓街建立校舍,是香港現存歷史最悠久的學校,書院校名「英華」便有肩負帶動中西文化交流重任的意思。早期的英華書院除致力辦學外,還印刷及出版不同書刊,包括基督教刊物、教材、報刊及小說。香港首份中文報刊《遐邇貫珍》便是在書院內的印刷館印刷發行。書院於1850年代出版英文教科書的中譯本《智環啟蒙塾課》,獲不少學校採用。至於1910年代創辦的學生報《英華青年》,則充分反映這段時期的歷史變化,有助我們了解香港文學的發展。

英華書院與漢學、華語翻譯、基督教在華傳播、香港西式教育、華文報刊出版及印刷方面的發展息息相關。時至今日,作為一所以傳揚福音為己任的學校,英華書院的辦學宗旨是提供優質教育,讓年輕人在各方面得到均衡發展,成為一個才德兼備的好公民。二○一八年適逢英華書院創校二百周年,香港郵政特別發行一張郵票小型張,以紀念這個重要的里程碑。

英華特選自家皕載 紅酒和白酒🍷

用心釀造,尊重環境,結合傳統與現代的酒莊! 校友會為200周年校慶特意由意大利北部山區和加爾達湖之間的家庭式酒莊帶給大家兩款葡萄酒。白酒用上傳統的當地特色葡萄Trebbiano di Lugana,清新優雅, 醉人的花香與柑橘,盡顯山間與湖泮的靈氣. 此白酒是配前菜,海鮮同沙律的理想選擇。紅酒則是三款葡萄混釀, 用上傳統的風乾手法, 加上30個月的法國桶與酒瓶陳年。此紅酒口感豐富,酒體適中, 結構良好, 收結悠長.配以烤肉,芝士等菜式絶佳。

美酒配上我們英華的自家酒標,份外親切。酒莊已為我們貼好皕載label,正在付運途中。這次可一不可再的機遇你又怎能錯過。
