The Josephian Quarterly Issue 004, Aug 2016

Dear Josephians

The fourth issue of The Josephian Quarterly is now available for download or online viewing.

This issue features several seemingly unrelated articles: King Tong ('70)'s story – one that will likely make you look back on your own days at SJACS, the article that calls upon all old boys to help save our old secondary school campus – an incredibly daunting, but not impossible, task, and Mr. Tang's article on SJACS's mentorship scheme. Yet, there's a thread that runs through them: the St. Joe spirit that Bro. Paul Sun has afforded us. As abstract as it may seem, I hope you agree that it is something that resonates in the heart of every Josephian. Let's keep it alive in all of us!
