St. Paul's Co-educational College Alumni Association

Welcome Message

Dear Fellow Alumni,

On behalf of the Executive Committee, I wish to bring you our best wishes for the Year of the Horse.

I would like to congratulate our fellow alumnus Dr Moses Cheng (1967) who was appointed Chairman of our School Council on 1 January 2014.  We look forward to working under his leadership to bring St Paul's Co-educational College to even loftier heights.

This issue of newsletter brings you the usual wonderful write-ups and photos of our Association's event which occurred in the past six months, as well as pictorial reports of alumni chapters and groups all over the world.  You are also encouraged to visit our website of updates of activities both abroad and in Hong Kong.

Please pay attention to this year's Annual Dinner which will take place in October and in a brand new venue, namely, the Island Shangri- La Hotel.  A Hollywood theme will be presented, which promises a lot of fun.  Please also note that in response to the feedbacks from our members, children under 12 years of age will not be allowed to join the event.  Seat priority will be given to alumni members, their spouses or significant others and their children aged 12 or above.  Your understanding and cooperation will be greatly appreciated.
