Mr. LAM 7



We are deeply saddened by the loss of alumni, Mr. LAM Ka Tai, JP., who passed away on 30 January 2021.

Mr. LAM graduated from Social Work Degree programme at APSS in 1987, being the class representative and an outstanding student. He then worked at the Social Welfare Department, HKSAR, after graduation. His outstanding leadership earned him Assistant Director and in 2013 he was appointed Deputy Director of Social Welfare (Services).

As a distinguished alumnus, Mr. Lam was very enthusiastic in supporting activities organised by APSS Graduates Association. He was a member of the selection panel of the 4th Outstanding Alumni Award in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the Department in 2013.

Mr. Lam will always be remembered for his passion, friendliness and support for his alma mater. Our thoughts and warmest wishes are with his family and friends.

Professor and Interim Head
