(refer to the photo album here for more highlights)

Date: 18 October 2022

Time: 4:30pm

Venue: The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong

 

The Honours Academy (HA) of the Hang Seng University of Hong Kong (HSUHK), established in 2020, officially welcomed the third cohort to its three-year interdisciplinary programme at the Inauguration Ceremony on 18 October, 2022. Having undergone a series of competitive selections, our 22 year-two undergraduates from different study programmes all treasured the chance to join the HA family, demonstrating a strong commitment to becoming a global citizen and a future leader, contributing to local and global social developments.

At the Inauguration Ceremony, the HA’s third cohort first received blessings from Dr the Honourable Moses Cheng, our University’s Council Chairman, and Prof Simon Ho, our President, together with a whole audience of the HA’s Professional and Academic Fellows, the University’s senior management, and academic and administrative staff.

 

With the words of wisdom delivered by Dr Moses Cheng, the 22 third-cohort HA new members were encouraged to embrace and even be part of the change, shaping, influencing and moulding the University and society as a whole. Prof Ho also shared with the future leaders the essence of being an HA member: the demonstration of the drive to reach out and take responsibility for themselves as members of the community, to contribute to the growth of the University and the community.

 

Receiving their HA pin from the HA Head, Prof Jeanne Fu, and the two Associate Heads, Dr Holly Chung and Ms Esther Lee, the 22 HA students are all ready to embark on their three-year HA journey, as a global citizen and an aspiring leader. The solemn pinning ceremony was then followed by another equally symbolic pass-on ritual where our second-cohort representative, Thomas Cheung, handed over the HA official t-shirt to the third cohort, signed by every single second-cohort student as a token of blessings. Four second cohort members, namely Issac Chan, Berrie Chim, Gloria Lo, and Kyle Wong also orchestrated a live musical celebration in which it was meticulously interwoven with a professionally-produced video clip. Both the on-site and on-exchange second-cohort HA members, sent along their best wishes and the warmest welcome to their new siblings, in any way, shape or form, all the way from South Korean, China, Finland and Canada.

 

Before and after the Inauguration Ceremony, upon this year’s leading theme at HA, Innovative Inheritance, the first and second cohort students, namely Ray Chan, Icy Leung, Christy Ng, and Gianni Ting participated as welcoming hosts to showcase the achievements of the HA family, in terms of experiential learning, social engagement, other broadening opportunities, academic achievements, professional development, and bonding and identity building.

 

The HA would not have been enjoying this much success without the support from the Professional Fellows. After the ceremony, every HA member had a precious chance to meet with the Professional Fellows who were dedicated enough to be spending their precious time with our new HA members out of their busy schedules. The Professional Fellows attending the Inauguration Ceremony included Mr Raymund CHAO, Chairman, Asia Pacific, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, China, PricewaterhouseCoopers; Ms Quince CHONG, JP, Chief Corporate Development Officer, CLP Power Hong Kong Limited; Ms Eva KWONG, Chief Corporate Services Officer, West Kowloon Cultural District Authority; Mr Peter Yan, JP, Chief Executive Officer, Cyberport; Mr Wilfred YIU, Co-Chief Operating Officer & Co-Head of Markets, Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited; and and Ms Wendy YUEN, Deputy Head of Personal & Business Banking Group, China CITIC Bank International. It was a delightful time for HA students to broaden their horizons by communicating and getting advice from the Professional Fellows.
