From a Teacher to the Chairman of a Listed Company

Alumnus George Wong Yui-lam graduated from The Sir Robert Black College of Education (SRBCE) and is currently Chairman of Bauhaus International (Holdings) Limited. After years of teaching, Alumnus Wong was inspired by a high-end fashion store when travelling. On returning to Hong Kong he opened a similar store, and his status changed from a teacher to that of an entrepreneur. The process of his entrepreneurship was not smooth at all, but he overcame the difficulties with SRBCE’s motto “Learning by Doing”. He finally succeeded with his business and even turned it into a listed public company!

Donations to set up Bursaries

The former Colleges of Education or The Education University of Hong Kong has provided the soil where our alumni previously pursued knowledge and set the direction for their future. Our students are also working hard to equip themselves in preparation for a career in education or other professions. Nevertheless, EdUHK Student Affairs Office’s “Profile of New Full-time Students 2018-19” indicated that nearly half of the respondents anticipated economic difficulties during their studies at the University. In view of this, we sincerely invite you to contribute generously and donate money for setting up bursaries to provide help for these needy students. Donations will be accumulated to a certain amount before a bursary will be set up for alleviating the financial burden of needy students. As they work hard in both their studies and part-time jobs, they will realise that there is a group of enthusiastic alumni and caring people in the community supporting them silently and encouraging them to strive for the implementation of educational ideals.
