Year of Award
An alumnus of Lingnan Primary School and a barrister admitted in the United Kingdom, Mr Peter Wong has dedicated whole-heartedly and selflessly to the cause of education. He regards nurturing young people as his personal mission, which is also the major impetus for his full-time devotion to social services. For over a decade, Mr Wong has been serving the World Union of Jesuit Alumni as their East Asia regional representative, participating in school construction and the provision of teaching support for those in need around the world. Soon after he returned to Hong Kong in 1980 to take care of his invalid parents and ageing grandparents, Mr Wong joined the Lingnan Education Organization as director and was appointed a member of the management committee and supervisor of three secondary schools, Lingnan Primary School and Lingnan Kindergarten. In the early 1990s, he became a member of the Court and Council of Lingnan College, which was later renamed Lingnan University. Mr Wong was also a voluntary legal consultant of the Lingnan University (Hong Kong) Alumni Association in its early years and a director of the Lingnan Club. Mr Wong was conferred the degree of Doctor of Laws honoris causa.
