To welcome the new academic year with a new cohort of physiotherapy (PT) and occupational therapy (OT) students, RS held the Inauguration Ceremony 2022/23 on 19 August 2022. The ceremony was arranged in a hybrid mode, and the guests and participants, including RS colleagues and students, joined the event in-person or virtually to share the excitement in kicking off a new academic year.

The ceremony was graced by Prof. Kwok-yin Wong, Vice President (Education) of PolyU, and Dr Lam Ching-choi, Non-official Member of the Executive Council of HKSAR Government and Chief Executive Officer of the Haven of Hope Christian Service, who delivered a speech separately. They congratulated the freshmen on being admitted into the BSc (Hons) in PT and BSc (Hons) in OT programmes, which are among the most competitive programmes at PolyU. They also encouraged the freshmen to take an active part in different local and international competitions as well as helping the needy in society especially in times of crisis.

After that, Prof. Hector Tsang (Cally Kwong Mei Wan Professor in Psychosocial Health, Chair Professor of Rehabilitation Sciences and Head of RS) gave an inspirational speech to the new students. He briefly reviewed the current development of healthcare and rehabilitation in Hong Kong, and explained how this affected the education and professional development of the OT and PT disciplines. He then summarised the achievements of RS last year and offered helpful guidance to the freshmen on how to prepare themselves in the coming four years and beyond.

Afterwards, there was the announcement and presentation of a series of awards and scholarships to our distinguished students and colleagues. Before the ceremony came to a close, Prof. Hector Tsang delivered a few final remarks and a vote of thanks to the guests and participants.
