FASS alumni, faculty members and staff came together for a Lo Hei lunch on 13 February this year. The traditional ‘Lo Hei’ ritual, or tossing of the yusheng to invoke Chinese New Year blessings, was led by FASS Dean, Prof Brenda Yeoh. She gave a presentation on the developments in the faculty, thanked Alumni and friends for their support and invited all to participate in the Faculty’s 85th Anniversary celebrations this year.

To kick off this special year, the Sociology Pioneer Class of 1969 brought with them the first-ever class reunion gift for the Department and the Faculty. Alumnus, Mr Yap Boh Tiong shared that the idea to set up a class bursary fund to commemorate their 45th year of graduation was first mooted when he attended a Homecoming event together with some classmates last year. In less than two months, not only were they able to connect with all of their 53 surviving classmates; more than 75% of the class contributed to the fund with support even coming from Colorado, USA!

We would like to thank every one who joined us for the Lo Hei and we look forward to seeing you all at the next event!
