26 Messages - Sharing and Supports

from CS Senior students to Year-1 students

[December 2010]


In December 2010, we sent out emails to year-2 and year-3 CS students and
invited them to write sharing messages to encourage the year-1 students. 
We are so proud and touched by their friendly and sincere responses. 
Though they were busy in their placement jobs and / or preparation of their exams,
we could still collect 26 messages and deliver to the year-1 students before Christmas! 
What a warm and delightful Christmas gift to all of us. 
We wish that this encouraging sharing activity be extended in different ways among CS. 

-- Dr. Helena Wong and Dr. Sam Ng (21/12/2010)
