Dear Fellow Alumni,
Honoured and humbled to be elected as the new Chairman of the Alumni Association, I would first like to extend a vote of gratitude to my predecessor Mr. Andrew Luk for his leadership and contribution over the past five years. I would also like to thank my fellow Executive Committee members for their trust and support.
SPCCAA will continue to work closely with the College and all stakeholders to broaden the networks of our alumni, foster fellowship within the SPCC family and engage its members in serving the community.
This year, the Executive Committee has established an Advisory Panel, inviting past Chairmen to share their invaluable insights with the Committee. A warm welcome to our four Advisors: Mr. Roland Chow, Dr. Michael Mak, Dr. Philip Leong and Mr. Herbert Tsoi. We would also like to extend a warm welcome to our newly appointed College Council Executive Committee Member, Ms. Michelle Chow.
Affected by COVID-19, the majority of our activities and events continue to be suspended. The recent fifth wave of the pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges and loss to many of us in Hong Kong. Therefore, it is more important than ever to pay attention to our own welfare and to show kindness and compassion to those around us. Next time we see a friend or loved one struggling under the weight of a burden, let us take the extra step of reaching out to offer our time, resources and care as a blessing to that person. We are again reminded that the act of kindness towards others is the foundation for every good thing in our lives. So it is not only a time for resilience to overcome hardship, but also a time for reflection, for compassion and for love.
“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.” (1 John 4:7)
Take care of yourself and loved ones; stay connected, stay strong and stay supported. We hope to resume all our events soon, once the pandemic situation eases. I look forward to meeting you at our next event.
Leung Wing Ci, Winnie
