Christina (1994 graduate) studied ten years at Maryknoll Convent School before completing her high school education at Santa Catalina School in California, USA. After obtaining a BA in Public Policy Studies (Chicago), and Masters in Comparative Social Policy (Oxford), Christina returned to Hong Kong to work briefly as a public sector management consultant at PWC Consulting. Since then, Christina has had the privilege to develop social services, cross-sector partnerships, and support schools alongside her father through Wofoo Foundation.
Nothing compares to the joy of sharing life and connecting with students and educators, as Christina discovered through completing the Master of Research and Professional Studies in Education (Bristol) and eventually the local teaching qualification (PGDE English, HKBU). She is currently the School Supervisor of N.T.W.J.W.A. Leung Sing Tak Primary School, school manager of WF Joseph Lee Primary School and St. Patrick’s School.
Christina is Court Member of the Hong Kong Baptist University, and Steward of the Education University of Hong Kong Foundation. She is a member of the Education Appeals Boards Panel, Standing Commission on Civil Service Salaries, and Commission on Poverty of the Hong Kong SAR Government.
Christina is married and blessed with two sons and a daughter.
What is your first memory of the school, (and if relevant, how did that influence you)?
The shock that came with being chosen to crown Mary on May Day, as I was neither the brightest nor the most well-behaved. I realise now this feeling “of being seen, chosen, and worthy” is what I hope education, in particular Catholic education, can bring about for all.
As a Councillor, what ambition or aspirations do you have?
To work together with the Maryknoll community to continue God’s work as the Maryknoll sisters have gone before us.
As we share our aspirations for mankind, belief in human potential for goodness, and inspired to be better versions of ourselves, we are also challenged to embrace diversity, humble ourselves, and seek God’s will.
What kind of skills, knowledge, or contribution do you bring to the school as a Councillor?
I hope to contribute my network and experience in education and character formation as we stay true to the mission of making God’s love visible and relevant to meeting the needs of our students and the community.
