On June 18, 2016 Yu Chun Keung Memorial College No. 2 held its 33rd Graduation Ceremony. Dr. Lai, Chi Keung Alvin, an alumnus was invited to officiate at the ceremony.
Rev. Gabriel Altamirano Ortega opened the ceremony with a prayer followed by a talk by Supervisor Lau, Chiu-yin Peter. He encouraged our students to keep improving themselves and learning.
Principal Li, Tak-fai spoke next about our accomplishments in the 2015-16 school year, including the successful Cloud STEAM Cross-curricular Learning Campus Programme. A video highlighting the strengths of the school followed Principal Li’s talk. It was well-received by the audience. For the past year, our students have been winning sports competitions, participating in Science activities, visiting various businesses and industries, doing community service work, preparing for exams and studying.
Then Dr. Lai gave an inspirational talk on his difficult background and how he went from being a poor student to a hard-working academic with degrees from the University of Hong Kong, Imperial College of London and the University of California, Berkley. His talk was often humorous but very meaningful. He is Associate Professor of Architecture and Civil Engineering at City University of Hong Kong.
The ceremony ended with a touching speech by Ng Hiu-ting, a student from 6D class and an entertaining singing and drama show performed by some of the graduating students.
Yu Chun Keung Memorial College No. 2 is proud of all its graduates.
