With the generous support of Wu Yee Sun Charitable Foundation Limited, Wu Yee Sun College has been established since 2007. Dr. Wu Yee Sun, the founder of Wing Lung Bank, cultivated a keen interest in the art of penjing and won the accolade of the “Stage of Penjing”.
The college emblem is therefore characterized by a bonsai of pine tree. Pine tree endures cold in winter and here it is likened to the indomitable spirit of perseverance and the College’s mission to nurture the future generation. The emblem resembles a jade pendant with ornate carve hinting the humble and receptive attitude of a gentleman. The shape also resembles an ancient coin which reflects the profession of Dr. Wu.
The publicity name of Wu Yee Sun College is “The Sunny College”: half word-play on Dr. Wu’s name and half of the College vision. May the College and its members radiate positive energy and be a passionate force that makes the world a better place.
