Tung Wah College Awards Over Seven Hundred Graduates at its 10th Graduation Ceremony

Tung Wah College (TWC) awarded 712 graduates either a Bachelor Degree or Higher Diploma in various disciplines at its 10th Graduation Ceremony held at the MacPherson Stadium on 24 November 2022. The Ceremony was officiated by Mr. Philip Ma, Chairman of Tung Wah Group of Hospitals (TWGHs) Board of Directors 2022/2023 cum Board of Governors of TWC.


Speaking at the Ceremony, the Guest of Honour, Mr. Henry Fan Hung-ling, SBS, JP, Chairman of the Hospital Authority (HA), commended TWGHs and TWC for its assistance and support during the 5th wave pandemic, such as the College’s academics and students providing timely services at the Kai Tak Holding Centre. He also called for the healthcare graduates to pursuing careers at HA and shared HA’s talent retention initiatives for nurses and allied health professionals, including a low-interest home loan scheme for staff, enhancement of career ladder and strengthening of professional training, etc. Lastly, Mr. Fan encouraged the graduates to treat their professions as a lifelong career, and not just a job no matter what they choose to do after graduation.


Professor Sally Chan, President of TWC remarked, “It has not been easy for you in the past couple of years because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many learning activities were cancelled or moved online. Graduates, you are a special class to complete your programme amid this critical time. We are so proud of your persistence, resilience, and commitment to strive for academic excellence and personal growth through a time of challenges and volatility.” She also encouraged the graduates to move higher, broader, and deeper in every future endeavour, stay firm in times of challenges, and turn them into opportunities that fostering their growth.


At the Ceremony, two graduates were invited to share their learning experience at TWC. Ms Chan Kwan Ling, graduate of Bachelor of Health Science (Honours) in Nursing, who worked for an NGO for nearly 3 years after graduating from Higher Diploma, aspired to become a specialty nurse in the future, sincerely thanked the teachers for their companion and assistance during the pandemic.


Mr. Alvin Chu, graduate representative of the first cohort of the Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Physiotheraphy, expressed his gratitude to the teachers for striving to make the most out of the tough time during the social unrest and pandemic and managed to give birth to a new batch of physio on time. He also shared a saying from one of his teachers, which he heard when he was preparing for his first in‐patient placement, “Treat the person in the bed as if he or she is your family. In this way, you give the best care to the patient as far as you can.” He also called for his fellow classmates to keep it up together and be worthy of the name of the first cohort of physiotherapy graduates.
