  2. 2. Words from Residence Master To All My Dear Academians 2011-12 has been a wonderful year again for many Academi- ans residing newly in or returning to Jockey Club Academy Hall (JCAC). I have received comments like “I love the dynamic at- mosphere in Hall 4(JCAC) and the kindness and caring from all these people living here” from among you, Academians, sharing with me your delight of having been assigned to JCAC and yourjoy of living here. In fact, it is the support and love of you, Academians, for the hall during theyear that you have made JCAC a great place for living and learning.It was my honour and privilege that I have been appointed as the residence master of JCACsince its infant stage. Having served in this position for seven years, I witnessed the rapid devel-opment of JCAC with notable achievements in both services and activities under the guidance,hard work and commitment of the many Residence Tutors and the Residents Association Execu-tive Committees and Councillors who have contributed immensely to the welfare and benefitsof fellow Academians in the past years. With the unfailing support of all the Academians, I amproud to say that JCAC is a well-groomed young adult today like your very self, having its Aca-demian culture and values firmly established and moving steadily ahead with its vision of provid-ing a happy second home to all residing under its roof.As many of you may know already, I have decided to relinquish my duties as your residencemaster at the end of this academic year. It has been a difficult decision for me to make. Withless attention given to JCAC due to my growing engagements elsewhere, I feel that I may notbe fulfilling my duties as a residence master to your expectation. Despite my strong interest inworking together with young people, I think this may be the appropriate time for me to let gothis meaningful job which I love so much, and to move on focusing more on my other areas ofcommitment.I treasure greatly the time that I have spent in JCAC. I have countless happy moments hereliving and learning together with every one of you. I hope you feel the same as I do and willcherish the many acquaintances that you have made in JCAC, and continue with these re-lationships as your life-long friends who can share your happiness and sorrows with you as youprogress with your many life tasks in the future.Thank you all for giving me my fond memories of JCAC! It is because of you that JCAC has be-come one of the best halls on campus which is well known for its energy and multifarious activi-ties, harmony and integration of residents coming from a diverse background, and a strong hallspirit by which Academians will always give their best to strive for the good name of JCAC ina united front. I do believe that JCAC can only go from strength to strength from this point on-wards, with the concerted efforts of all Academians - past, present and future.Once an Academian, always an Academian! May I wish JCAC and all Academians every ac-complishment in the years ahead.Farewell and best wishes to you all,PeggyYour residence masterMay 2012 3
