The 38th Graduation and Prize-giving Ceremony
Activity Category :
We rescheduled and held the 38th Graduation and Prize-giving Ceremony on 10 October. Dr Tiffany C. L. Wong, Clinical Assistant Professor of Department of Surgery of the University of Hong Kong and alumna of the College, officiated in the event.
The ceremony commenced with the Supervisor, Sr Lucy’s welcome speech, in which she encouraged the graduates not to fear the challenges ahead, but to surmount all difficulties in God’s love.
Dr Wong shared her experience that she hoped graduates would learn through to dispel the fear of failure. Being a leading expert in the field today, she was not admitted to the medical school in the first place. However, she never refrained from pursuing her dream to be a medical professional — she was enrolled in the Department of Government and Public Administration, the Chinese University of Hong Kong and transferred to the Faculty of Medicine after a year. Dr Wong concluded her speech by quoting Ruth Bader Ginsburg, late Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, as an example for students to take part in creating a better world.
The College has embarked on a series of events in celebration of the 40th anniversary. To commemorate this and express their heartfelt gratitude towards the teachers, the graduates presented a gift of Chinese calligraphy, reading ‘Embracing God’s Grace, Embedded Hearts in Sha Tin’, to the school.
The ceremony came to an end in the singing of the School Song.
