The Hong Kong Polytechnic University – University Fellows Association recently organized its first Gala Dinner in celebration of the 80th Anniversary of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU). About a hundred of guests, including University Fellows, PolyU Court and Council members, senior management, staff and student representatives, attended the Dinner.

The Dinner took place on 27 March 2017 at Hotel ICON. Addressing the event, Prof. Roy Chung Chi-ping, Co-Chairperson of the Association’s Management Committee, expressed his gratitude to the Association’s members for their generous support for its many initiatives such as talk series, the Student Development Sponsorship Scheme for Service-Learning (SL) projects and the Scholarships for Outstanding PolyU Student Athletes over the past two years. On the occasion, Mr Chan Tze-ching, Chairman of PolyU Council, and Prof. Timothy W. Tong, President of PolyU and Honorary Patron of the Association, commended the Association for its contributions to the University’s development, particularly its efforts in promoting the holistic development of students through its various meaningful programmes.

Prof. Tong also shared with the guests PolyU’s latest developments in teaching and research during the Dinner. Apart from the University’s commitment in advancing our society, the guests also had a glimpse of PolyU students’ achievements in sports and SL through the amazing performance by the PolyU Karatedo Team and the sharing by students who had participated in some self-initiated SL projects. The event also saw the Association’s presentation of Membership Certificates to University Fellows of the years 2015/16 and 2016/17 and Scholarships for Outstanding PolyU Student Athletes. The Dinner concluded with Mrs Katherine Ngan Ng Yu-ying, Co-Chairperson of the Association’s Management Committee, proposing a vote of thanks to the Committee members for their contributions in making the Gala Dinner a success.

Established in 2015, the PolyU - University Fellowships Association aims to foster fraternity among the University Fellows and to enhance their roles in promoting the University’s mission in serving the community, as well as to facilitate the all-round development of students. The Association now has 63 Founding Members and 29 Members.
