Over the last few years, current and past Shrewsbury families and Old Salopians living in Hong Kong have come together in conjunction with Robin Case, who retired as Registrar last summer, to form The Friends of Shrewsbury School (Hong Kong) Association. At a formal dinner last November, attended by 113 people, the Headmaster and the Chairman of the Association, Willie Cheng, signed the Articles of Association, setting out the aims and objectives and providing for a new structure and membership in the years ahead. Many families attending the dinner signed up and became formal members.
During their annual trip to Hong Kong to interview potential pupils and visit local schools last week, Director of Music John Moore, Admissions Manager Verity Llewelyn-Jones and Robin Case were pleased to host a dinner on behalf of the School for the Friends of Shrewsbury School (Hong Kong) Association Committee at the Snow Garden Restaurant.
The guests were: Chairman Willie Cheng (father of Michael (I UVI) and Jonathan (I LVI)), Vice Chairman Joseph and Michelle Law (parents of Derek (O UVI), May Tsui (mother of Adrian Yick (2013 leaver) and Bryan (M LVI)), Sarah Lo (mother of Clive Lam (O UVI) and Ivan (M LVI)), Dennis Lo (father of Douglas (2012 leaver) and Daniel (SH LVI), Carson and Denise Lee (father of Marco (I V)), Lawrence and Adeline Cheung (parents of Calvin (O V)), Helen Mayhew (mother of William (2013 leaver) and Henry (Ch 3rd Form)) and K.H.To (father of Eugene (2012 leaver).
