Dear Professor Fung, Honourable Guests, Father Chow, Mr. So, Rev. Fathers, Teachers, Parents, Fellow Wahyanites, Ladies and Gentlemen,
Congratulations once again to Ming Hon, Kar Ho and Kwong Chuen for being elected as Outstanding Students and Candidates for Student Ambassador for this year by their peers. We are impressed by your academic performance, leadership capability and your achievement in music. May you continue to display your outstanding quality among your peers and lead others into excellence.
To many Wahyanites, the Student Ambassador seems only an unfamiliar figure with the sole task of taking a trip abroad. In fact, the Student Ambassador Scheme is a part of the school involvement and internationalisation efforts of the Past Students’ Association. The prime duty of the Student Ambassador is to serve as a bridge between the past students and the current students. He needs to introduce the latest development of the school to alumni on one hand, promote friendship and communication between all alumni and present students on the other.
Vivid scenes still appear in my mind when I recall the moment I was elected Student Ambassador on this stage 16 years ago. It was also the first speech day that Mr. So officiated as the School Principal. To me, the title carries immense responsibilities. As Student Ambassador, I had a lot of invaluable opportunities to meet our fellow seniors. I have learnt tremendously from them. Their dedication, rigorous attitude, diligence, and strong sense of belonging have deeply inspired me.
Fellow Wahyanites, Wah Yan provides us not just with academic knowledge, but also lots of opportunities and freedom to develop our leadership, potentials and talents in various fields. We are unique; we are the best. It is my seven years in Wah Yan that I have become who I am today. We are all proud of Wah Yan. The only way to preserve her success and fame is to give what we can do to the School. Therefore, immediately after graduation, I joined the Past Students’ Association. Through the Past Students’ Association, we can maintain our linkage with our beloved School forever. We can support our beloved School forever.
Wahyanites, let us unite together under the school motto, “In Hoc Signo Vincs”, and fight for the bright future of Wah Yan!
Now, it is time to announce the Student Ambassador of the year. The Student Ambassador is Chow Kwong Chuen. Congratulations!
