Appendix I

Statement of Personal Introduction from the Candidate

I am Daniel Wong, a Lasallian since 1991, and I am submitting my candidacy to be the Alumni Manager of our alma mater. As a lifelong Lasallian who graduated from La Salle Primary School in 1994 and La Salle College in 1999, I identify strongly with our Lasallian educational environment and Catholic atmosphere (through my service for the Legion of Mary).

I believe I can be an effective bridge between Old Boys and our beloved alma mater, because I am a deep listener with a strong drive towards excellence. As a consultant obstetrician & gynaecologist, and chief of service at Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital, my daily life revolves around understanding people’s concerns and finding ways to help them.

For the past 2 years, I have been a Committee member of the La Salle College Old Boys’ Association (LSCOBA), responsible for the Religious subcommittee and Class Coordination. This year, I am also standing for the election of the OBA President, which I hope will empower my teams’ Lasallian community outreach while refreshing ourselves in the La Salle Spirit.

On the education side, I am the Director of Nethersole Clinical Stimulation Training Centre and a Honorary Clinical Associate Professor in Medicine at HKU and CUHK. I also serve as the School Sponsoring Body Manager in Tai Kok Tsui Catholic Primary School (Hoi Fan Road) and as the Chairperson in Diocesan Committee of Bioethics. I hope to bring to La Salle these experiences at the primary, secondary, tertiary, and Catholic levels, to make our school a better place for all stakeholders.
