On behalf of the Student Council of Ying Wa College, I am writing to extend an invitation to you to the Mentorship Scheme2017.
Jointly organised by the Career Guidance Committee, the English Department, the Old Boys’ Association and the Student Council, the Mentorship Scheme was first launched in 2009. Through interviews with alumni, the scheme serves as a platform on which our fellow students are able to gain insights into their possible career paths. Meanwhile, on this special occasion which brings Ying Wa Boys of different times together, it is hoped that the bond between students and alumni can be strengthened, promoting the Ying Wa Spirit. To ensure students learn effectively from the scheme and consolidate their knowledge on their aspired careers, they will be required to write up a career research report as a piece of English Language homework under the guidance of English teachers.
Thanks to the support of graduates and teachers, the scheme has been a huge success over the past years. The sharing from old boys was insightful and we benefited greatly. This year, the Mentorship Scheme will begin in April. It is our honour to have invited our alumnus, Mr Yip Kwun Lam (葉冠霖), veteran journalist and the radio host of RTHK’s programme “Talkabout”, to be our keynote speaker. The details of the Launching Ceremony are as follows:
Date: 29 April 2017
Time: 09:00 – 12:00
Venue: Noble Hall, Ying Wa College
We cordially invite you to become one of the mentors of the scheme this year.

It is with sadness to inform you that Cheung Kwok For John (old boy 1967) passed away on 20 August 2014. John had served in the Executive Committee of the Old Boys’ Association for some years. John was always sincere and positive and willing to lend his helping hands to others – an unsung hero truly. Our thoughts are with his family.
