Gratitude to our Alumni for their Generosity and Support for the “Graduation Bear Programme”

When this year’s graduates returned to the campus to pick up their graduation gowns from 12 to 14 October 2018, Alumni Affairs and Development Office (AADO) took this opportunity to set up booths for three days to receive our fresh graduates and introduce to them alumni activities, services and other offers.

In addition, AADO is thankful to graduates who participated in the “EdUHK Graduation Bear Programme”. They made generous donations to support “The Education University of Hong Kong Foundation”. These funds will be used to support the academic development of the University and to provide more diverse learning opportunities for EdUHK students. To express our gratitude, graduates who participated in the “EdUHK Graduation Bear Programme” will be given a Graduation Bear.
