Trinity Hall in Hong Kong
25 August 2015
This year was Jeremy Morris' first visit to Hong Kong as Master and we were pleased to welcome 35 alumni, students - including some 2015 Freshers - and friends to our dinner on 17th September. We are grateful to George Lamplough (1990) for making the arrangements at the Hong Kong Cricket Club.
Dr Andrew Murray, Admissions Tutor, visited various schools during the week explaining the process of Cambridge University admissions. The main event for the past three years has been a session open only to students from government-run non-fee-paying secondary schools, organised jointly by Trinity Hall and our local collaborators: the WYNG Foundation, the Philomathia Foundation and the HK Association of Careers Masters and Guidance Masters, with assistance from local members of the Friends of Cambridge University. Andrew spoke to 300 children before the presentation of the 2015 Hong Kong Schools Essay prize.
Hong Kong Schools Essay Prize
This is the second year that the WYNG and Philomathia Foundations have supported an essay prize for children who are studying at government-run non-fee paying secondary schools in Hong Kong. The prize winners all came to College in July to stay for a week. They had tours of Cambridge, attended the Open Day and a supervision on their essay topic. This year the theme was "Air".
