Lingnan University has recently received a commendation award from the Soong Ching Ling Former Residence Administration under the Chinese Ministry of Culture. Lingnan is the only Hong Kong tertiary institution accorded the award, which recognised our students’ achievements in voluntary services on the mainland.
Selected Lingnan students, with dedication and commitment, participated in a mainland summer internship scheme at the former residence of Soong Ching Ling in Beijing for the past three years. Their distinguished performance won the University a nomination for the group award of excellence in voluntary services. A presentation paper was submitted by the Student Services Centre to demonstrate Lingnan students’ active participation in cultural exchanges, voluntary and community services in the mainland, and various mainland summer internships. The paper was acclaimed by the judging panel formed by the Ministry of Culture and the China Soong Ching Ling Foundation.
On behalf of the University, Miss Iris Lee, Senior Administrative Officer of the HKSAR Government’s Beijing Office, received a certificate of excellence at a commemorative ceremony of the 118th birthday of Soong Ching Ling on 27 January 2011 at her old residence.
