Honorary Fellowship conferred upon Six Distinguished Individuals

  • At different stages of their lives, and in their different capacities as advisors, councillors and reformers, they have helped shape Hong Kong and its growth towards a civil society.

On 22 March 2013, the Institute conferred Honorary Fellowship upon six distinguished individuals: the Right Reverend Bishop Andrew Chan Au-ming, Mr Fung Sau-chung, Ms Leona Lam Wai-ling, Mr Frank Lee King-ting, Mr Tai Hay-lap and Ms Christina Ting Yuk-chee.

These six Honorary Fellows epitomise the course of education development in Hong Kong and its capacity building as our city ushered in the 21st century information era. They can be aptly described as walking dictionaries of early childhood, primary to secondary education, as well as the motivators of the ministry of education grounded in Christianity and creativity in education. They are also exemplary figures whose expertise has contributed significantly to the education sector and our society at large. At different stages of their lives, and in their different capacities as advisors, councillors and reformers, they have helped shape Hong Kong and its growth towards a civil society.

In his speech delivered at the conferment ceremony, the Acting President Professor Cheng Yin-cheong articulated HKIEd’s role in the much-awaited 15-year free education. He also expressed his sincere wish in having the support of the six Honorary Fellows, as well as those of the attendees in advancing quality education for the needs of various stakeholders in the wider community.
