We would like to share the good news that Miss Angel Tam, year 3 student of BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy programme, and Miss Sarah Lee, year 3 student of BSc (Hons) in Occupational Therapy programme, were selected to be the recipients of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Scholarships – Undergraduate Scholarship. The HKJC Scholarships are highly competitive and dedicated to nurture local talents to contribute to society. The two students share their happiness below:

Miss Angel Tam

It is my great honour to be awarded The Hong Kong Jockey Club Scholarships this year. Thanks to the unconditional love and support from my family and teachers, I have been granted many opportunities to learn and explore different things, which allow me to reflect deeply on what I can do for the community and serve as a future leader. I have also been motivated to participate in different kinds of community work, through which I was able to understand the life and difficulties of different groups of people. All these opportunities have equipped me with various life skills and empowered me to work towards the goal of being a caring leader. Again, I want to express my deepest appreciation to all the teachers and friends who have provided me with endless support throughout my study over the past few years.

Furthermore, I owe a deep debt of gratitude to The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust for this scholarship, which has allowed me to explore more and different extracurricular activities and contribute to the local community. In the future, I wish to equip myself with more knowledge and skills so as to become a successful and caring physiotherapist who can help patients regain their health and recover fully.

Miss Sarah Lee
It is my great honour to receive this special award. I wish to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt thanks to my family for their unconditional love and support, which has helped nurture my personal growth and broaden my horizons throughout these years. I would also like to express my sincere gratitude to The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, PolyU, and my teachers for providing me with the precious opportunities to explore my potential, challenge myself and contribute my knowledge and skills to the community.

Through joining the Hong Kong Jockey Club Induction Programme a month ago, I realised that there were limitless possibilities for us as young people to create a positive impact on society. I was also encouraged by my peers who were striving very hard to make a change in the community. As an occupational therapy student, I wish to become a more competent, all-round person with a compassionate and caring heart to serve others. With these qualities, I hope in the future I can help improve people’s health and wellbeing and enhance their quality of life, so that they can live a meaningful life.


Prof. Hector Tsang, Chair Professor and Head of the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences, met Angel and Sarah to express his congratulatory message to them. He was proud of their achievement and hoped they could inspire their fellow students to contribute to society in a similar manner.
