Dear Friends and Schoolmates of James Tong,

To remember and honour James Tong, we contacted Mr. Warren Chung, Principal of Wah Yan Kowloon about setting up a one-time scholarship in the name of James.  We sent a public announcement to you in early November 2020 about the  at Wah Yan College, Kowloon. Contributions were to be sent to Wah Yan Kowloon directly, which would be used as one-time scholarships awarded to worthy students who demonstrated academic achievement as well as resilience to hardship.
 
We are pleased to report that Wah Yan Kowloon collected a total of HK$40,025 by January of 2021. After carefully reviewing the applications, Mr. Chung, the school principal, and his team decided to award a scholarship in the sum of HK$7,000 to each of the six students, selected from each level of the school, that is, Form One to Form Six.

On 9th February, 2021, a scholarship presentation ceremony was held at Wah Yan Kowloon, to which Joseph Lau and Peter Li attended. In the ceremony, James Tong was remembered as a role model and an exemplary alumnus who had lived up to the mottos of Wah Yah throughout his rich life. The ceremony was tape-recorded. Please click on the following link once and wait for a few seconds for the video to appear. (If unsuccessful, then just copy the link and paste it on Google search).

We would like to thank Mr. Chung, Principal of Wah Yan Kowloon, for facilitating the creation of the scholarship and administering it. In particular, we would like to extend our appreciation to you, donors and supporters, for making the James Tong Scholarship possible.

Wishing you and your family a Healthy and Auspicious Year of the Ox,
