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.

Dear Alumni,

We are proposing to have an outdoor activity in November:

November 22 – Cruise and Tour to the Dangar Island

Ever been to Dangar Island before? It is located here in NSW – certainly not ‘Danger’ Island by misspelling! This is a historical site along the Hawkesbury River where Governor Phillip used it as a base for his explorations of the Hawkesbury in the early days, resulting in the farming settlements of Windsor and Richmond and housing for construction workers of the al-important Hawkesbury River Railway Bridge, completed in 1889. We are proposing a cruise on board the boat The Riverboat Postman. Departing from Kangaroo Point Wharf or Brooklyn Public Wharf, this cruise covers the lower end of the Hawkesbury River. It used to be running between 10.30 am and returning between 1.30 pm and 2.00 pm. It includes morning tea on arrival, and a fish'n'chip lunch (plus the BYO Chinese cuisine we can bring in) served on board after a guided tour of the island. We can charter the boat and we are looking for a group of 20 or more, adult $45 and children $15 per head. Please contact Ronnie Tong at 0420220591 and Fred Mak (02) 9869 4615 for reservation as we need to know our number by October 15. More details can be obtained through the website link

We look forward to your participation in the above.


In Memory of Dr Marvin K.T. Cheung

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dr Marvin K.T. Cheung, GBS, OBE, JP (張建東博士) (1963), on 13 September 2014.

Dr Cheung was a stalwart alumnus, and served many years as a  member and as Hon Treasurer of SPCC School Council.

Dr Cheung was instrumental in helping SPCC develop from an aided school to a Direct Subsidy Scheme school, and played a pivotal role in a number of our milestone developments in the past two decades. He was a staunch supporter of our association. His passing is a great loss to the SPCC family and we shall miss his guidance and invaluable advice.

Vigil will be held on Friday, 26 September 2014 from 5pm to 10pm at the Hong Kong Funeral Home, 679 King’s Road, Hong Kong.

Funeral service and thanksgiving for his life will be held on Saturday, 27 September 2014 at 9am at St. John’s Cathedral, 4-8 Garden Road, Hong Kong.

We are deeply saddened by Dr Cheung’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family to whom we send our most sincere condolences.
