    Hello 10th Anniversary

    I have great pleasure in extending my congratulations to The Hong Kong Polytechnic

    University (Australia) Association on the happy occasion of its 10th Anniversary.

    Since its establishment in 2002, the Association has been one of the most active and

    enthusiastic overseas chapters of our University. In addition to organizing many alumni

    activities for its members, the Association has been actively supporting and participating in a

    wide range of PolyU events. The enthusiasm and dedicated support of the Association are

    heartily appreciated by all members of PolyU.

    PolyU has always been committed to the development of a close relationship with our

    alumni and former staff. We have encouraged our alumni to establish associations for

    different disciplines and areas. As of this year, we have more than 40 local alumni

    associations and 8 overseas chapters. PolyU is indeed very lucky to have such a large

    number of dedicated alumni and former staff who have devoted their efforts to help develop

    a strong network among themselves and with the University.

    I would like to express my sincere appreciation to all those who are involved in developing

    the Association. With the support of the Association, I have every confidence that PolyUs

    network in Australia will expand and develop even further.

    I look forward to seeing all members of the Association in the upcoming PolyU 75th

    Anniversary celebration activities, and wish the Association every success in its future


    Timothy W. Tong, Ph.D.

    Presidents Report

    I am delighted to present the Presidents report for the year 2011 to 2012. It is with great pleasure that I welcome you all to this celebration of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (Australia) Associations 10th anniversary. The HKPOLYUAA was founded in 2002. This celebration marks a decade of important milestones achieved in the development of the Association. We will continue to play an important role in strengthening The Hong Kong Polytechnic Universitys (PolyU) network in Australia. We are proud to be PolyUs third overseas society for graduates and past employees. During the past ten years we have grown from six founding members to over 100 alumni life members plus a number of ordinary members. While the majority of our members reside in Sydney, we also have a good number of members based in Melbourne, plus a few members in Brisbane and Perth. Our primary aim is to provide a platform for members to network and share experiences with other graduates who have graduated from different eras. Over the past 75 years The Hong Kong Polytechnic University was formerly known as the Government Trade School, the Hong Kong Technical College, and the Hong Kong Polytechnic. The HKPOLYUAA aims to achieve this by organising social and cultural activities for members, including health seminars, bushwalking and fund-raising for charities to list a few. We also provide a network for our members to maintain close links with the University through the Association. I would like to take this opportunity to thank PolyU, our committee, alumni and friends for their tremendous support and dedication to the Association over the past 10 years. I firmly believe that with all the combined efforts and support, the Association will continue to grow in numbers. I look forward to meeting you all at upcoming alumni activities.

    Tony Tong, President of the HKPOLYUAA (2009-13).
