Congratulations to Dr. Lam Tai Fai for having an Honorary Fellowship conferred on him by The Education University of Hong Kong
We would like to express our congratulations to our Supervisor, Dr. Lam Tai Fai, who was recently awarded an Honorary Fellowship from The Education University of Hong Kong. Some of our teachers and students attended the Honorary Fellowship Presentation Ceremony at The Education University of Hong Kong on the 31st of March to share in his happiness, and visit the various educational facilities at the University.
The Honorary Fellowship was presented to Dr. Lam by the University President, Professor Stephen Y. L. Cheung. The Citation of the University commended Dr. Lam on his contributions to the field of education. As a leader in the textiles and fashion industry, Dr. Lam has acknowledged the importance of cultivating talents and optimizing the use of resources and founded Lam Tai Fai College in 2004. Our school was the first in Hong Kong to weave fashion design, sports development, innovative technology and health education into the conventional curriculum.
In addition to his contributions to secondary education, Dr. Lam also attached great importance to the development of local higher education. He made a donation to establish the Polytechnic University of Hong Kong’s first full-time Master’s degree programme in Fashion and Textile Design in 2000. Dr. Lam has served a number of capacities in various universities, including Member of the Court and Deputy Chairman of Polytechnic University‘s Council, Honorary Member of the Court of Hong Kong Baptist University, and Member of EdUHK’s Presidential Advisory Group.
Moreover, Dr. Lam began the large-scale project of building primary schools on Mainland China in 2006. Thanks to his financial support and dedication, more than 30 primary schools have been built in Henan, Qinghai, Yunnan and Hubei provinces. Dr. Lam’s devoted and dedicated efforts towards Hong Kong and Mainland education shows that he is truly deserving of the Honorary Fellowship which was awarded based on his magnificent achievements.
Congratulations again to Dr. Lam on receiving this honor. We hope that our students will see Dr. Lam as role model and fully develop their potentials and contribute their talents to the advancement of society.
