    OUHK celebrates 22nd Anniversary video


    Fun and joy were the order of the day when more than 250 students, alumni, staff, families and friends gathered at the Ho Man Tin campus on 6 November for the Alumni Homecoming Day cum Inauguration Ceremony of CPII Donor Wall to celebrate the 22nd Anniversary of the OUHK.

    The celebration kicked off with the Inauguration Ceremony of CPII Donor Wall. The OUHK Deputy Council Chairman Mr Edward Cheung, Deputy Chairman of the Sponsorship and Development Fund Committee Dr Vincent Woo and President Prof. John C Y Leong officiated.

    photo In his welcoming remarks, Mr Cheung said that over the past 22 years, the OUHK has advanced its mission of offering 'Education for All'. Building on its strengths in distance learning education, the OUHK has also developed various programmes and courses offered via the face-to-face and online modes.

    Mr Cheung also thanked donors for their generous support of the University's Campus Phase II Development Project and the OUHK's fund-raising efforts under the Government's Fifth Matching Grant Scheme.

    He said, 'With the enthusiastic support of the community, the OUHK has achieved encouraging results in the development of its campus and academic programmes over the past 22 years. We are most grateful to members of the OUHK community for their dedication and devotion.'

    The ceremony was followed by the presentation of a birthday card by representatives of the student and alumni associations.

    The day also celebrated the launch of the OUHK New College Project. The New College will be constructed on Chung Hau Street in close proximity to the Ho Man Tin campus. It is expected to be completed by the end of 2013 and will offer full-time programmes in cultural and creative arts, testing and certification, and medical services, to support some of the Government's crucial industries.

    photo Prof. Leong said the New College Project signifies a great stride forward in the development of the University. He called on participants and guests to support the project and the 'Name a Desk' fund-raising campaign.

    A series of fabulous performances by alumni and students, including dancing, martial arts and taekwondo displays, yo-yo tricks, orchestral music and singing, was held on the day.

    Six alumni groups were out in force to recruit new members. There were also sales of souvenir items printed with an 'Open Your Eyes' design, specially created by local radio programme host and designer Mr Jan Lamb.
