We are talking to alumni who are yet to response still. With 5 more days to go, please get your network moving. Let's join hand to get closer to our $2 million goal. ……
We are also happy to inform you that we will organise a Folk Music Gala with the 3 Schools on Sunday, 30th August 2009 at the HKJC Auditorium, The HK Polytechnic University (http://www.auditorium.polyu.edu.hk/eng/jca_site/index_2.htm). The object is to promote music talent and bonding in our Wah Yan community. We have learnt from our music teachers this event will let our students, parents, teachers and alumni work and play together. It will also help us gather talents for our Anniversaries Concert in July 2010.
We will target approx. 30 entries in the format of a contest. Hence if you are interested in taking part, please let us know. Rules and details will be announced soon.
