CHAIRMAN’S REPORT FOR 2021/2022
I have pleasure to present a report of the Old Boys’ Association for the year 2021/2022. Despite the continuing disturbances from Covid, the activities of the Association have much resumed during the year. The following activities were organized with warm response:
Among Old Boys
- A local tour was organized to visit sites of heritage in New Territories in October 2021.
- Basketball competition was held in November 2021, with again the unusual “mask-on” during the competition.
- The film show “Anita Mui” was organized in November of which the film director Longman Leung (梁樂民), a Ying Wa old boy, shared with the audience his inspirations about the film.
- Information communication technology chapter organized two gatherings with fellow ICT professionals. The Financial Chapter organized a sharing about working in a Big 4 accounting firm with attendance of old boys understudying in universities.
- Walkathon raising funds of about HK$500,000 was organized in virtual form for a second year in hot heat summer this year due to the disturbances from Covid. Current students from primary and secondary sections and old boys participated during the specified period on hiking routes of their choice.
With Mother School
- As usual, the Association rendered assistance to old boys in the liaison with Ying Wa Primary School and Ying Wa College for student admission applications.
- The Archive Sub-committee has been set up to advise and assist Ying Wa in the upkeeping and collection of the treasures of Ying Wa heritage. Thanks to the support of the school Board of Directors, a part-time archivist was on board to professionally look after this.
In this connection, we shall continue to work closely with Principal Mr Dion Chen and Headmistress Dr Sylvia Chan in the years to come.
Lastly, I have to thank the Presidents, my fellow Executive Committee members, the school authorities for their advice and contributions in making the above possible. Thank you.
