An outstanding student from a hospital-sponsored school aspires to be a doctor and serve the public as a way of repaying society. Sixth former Vincent Sin Cheuk-hang of TWGHs Chen Zao Men College won the Student of the Year award in the secondary category of the annual Tung Wah Group of Hospitals competition. He scored eight As and one B in the HKCEE and actively took part in extra-curricular activities, including the Radio Science Competition in China, Basic Law Project Competition and the Dragon at the Great Wall event early this year. He was also chairman of the student association, and was noted for his constructive ideas in the development of information technology at the school. 'Being a doctor has been my ambition since I was a child,' said Cheuk-hang at the presentation ceremony. 'In public hospitals, I could serve many people, especially the poor who are particularly in need,' said the 17-year-old, adding that he himself was brought up in a lower-middle class family. Being interested in mathematics, he took mathematics instead of biology with the confidence that his chances of getting into the University of Hong Kong's medical school would not be affected. Recipe for success 'I don't want to miss the chance to study mathematics,' he said. 'And it isn't a bad thing to learn more subjects. 'It creates more opportunities to help my schoolmates with their studies, something I enjoy doing very much.' Setting goals and being optimistic about achieving them by putting in effort were his recipe for success. Being optimistic resulted in little pressure in his studies, he said. Cheuk-hang said he felt inadequate for neglecting his personal development in arts and sports, but said he would devote more time to these aspects as a challenge to himself. Cheuk-hang said he would save the $5,000 cash prize for future educational use. Chan Wai-man, 19, who has a mild grade learning disability, was among four students from Tsui Tsin Tong School, a mild and moderate grade special school, who received awards and $1,000 each. He was keen on studying and serving at school as a prefect, said principal Wong Fung-ying. 'When others do not understand, I help them,' said Wai- man. He nodded his head when asked if he felt happy doing that. He would be transferred to the Pokfulam Skills Centre under the Vocational Training Centre for two to three years' training in office-cleaning. He said he hoped to find a job as soon as possible. 'I want to relieve my mum and dad's burden,' said Wai- man.
