WYK Homecoming Concert 2011
I trust many of you have read the news on 東方日報 and 星島日報 in the last few days in relation to small class teaching in WYK. Based upon this, I have received a number of phone calls from the past students to request me clarifying with the school management on the news contents. Hence, I spoke to Dr. Tan last evening and obtained the following clarification:
(1) WYK is in the consultation period on the proposal on small class teaching in WYK. The SMC has no stance or view on whether this will be the way for WYK to go forward.
(2) The school management is still welcoming all stakeholders, including past students, to provide their views and opinions on this issue.
(3) Although the initial deadline as given by the Education Bureau to confirm whether adopting the proposal from the EB is in February 2011 (note: Michael Suen said the deadline would be 25th February, 2011 yesterday), there is no rush for WYK to make any decision on this proposal prior to such deadline. Thus, there will not be any decision to be made at the SMC meeting on 7th December, 2010.
Accordingly, since this is a serious and material issue which will affect the way WYK accepting Form One students and providing education to our current students, I would much appreciate it if you can continue providing your views/ideas/opinions on this matter to me so that I can collect all for the SMC to consider and for reference at the upcoming SMC meeting. Further, please kindly feel free to pass it to the other past students who may have other views to share.
Should you have any queries, please kindly feel free to call me at 9015-5726 or write to me to discuss.
Thanks so much for your attention and assistance in advance.

I feel so lucky to be able to dine with you and exchange thoughts, especially for some whom I did not have chance to meet since graduating from WYK (in 1978). This is a blessing.
Sorry that my limited time at HK did not allow me to accommodate the busy schedule of some of you (Jacky, Gordon, Wilfred, and Alan because of family emergency). May our good Lord watch over us and grant us another reunion opportunity in the future. For now, please refer to the attached photos (1) (2) as souvenir. Also thanks to Francis for coordinating this event and suggesting the good rendezvous.
My best regards, and God bless.

Below is the sad news from Vincent (5.4.2010 Mon 1:46pm):
A beloved friend of mine, a keen footballer & lefty, an active member of the WYK-76 class, an EE graduate of U of Alberta 1982 has passed away on afternoon of 2010-04-04 after battling cancer in Edmonton. Sammy YUNG Chi-keung was survived by Nigel who is in university and wife, Nora Yiu. He was 52, and his funeral in Edmonton will be next week.
The finale of our celebration programme, Wah Yan Encore, will be held on Saturday, 10th July 2010 at the Hong Kong Coliseum. It will showcase the essence of performing arts emerged in the histories of Wah Yan. More than 800 alumni, teachers, parents, current students and our friendly schools will be performing. It should be an enduring learning experience for everyone taking part in the event.
This ensemble has started preparing for the programme since last July. In the coming months they will shoulder intense revisions and mass rehearsals. On behalf of the Organising Committee, we are inviting you to attend this meaningful event. Just by accepting our invitation and come with your family and friends, you will send a strong message of endorsement to these diligent performers and workers. You will be a role model of “Man for and with Others” by empowering them to focus on delivering their very best.
We enclose herein the ticket order and sponsorship form for your perusal. If you would like to share your ideas, please kindly contact Lee Yu Leung on 6626 1111 or by email: email@example.com. We look forward to welcoming you at the Coliseum. May God bless you and your loved ones!

1) Whether an artificial grass field is a good alternative to the existing natural grass field? In medium term? In long term?
2) How many different types of artificial grass field WYK should consider? How many qualified vendors there are in the market?
3) What are the true costs of the artificial grass field, with ongoing maintenance included?
4) What are some other related construction costs, such as foundation, draining, or even lighting?
If you happen to know such technical expertise, please give Wah Yan a lead or referral and feel free to contact Gordon.
What's more encouraging, our young runners had set sight on better results as the target for next year, for they believed Marathon running could elevate their self confidence and help their fellow schoolmates in need. These young Wahyanites had demonstrated the true spirit of Wah Yan "Men for and with Others". With their support, we could see long distance running will become a virtue of Wah Yan.
Taking this opportunity, may we thank you and the two Schools for your unfailing support to the Marathon Campaign. We will do our best in getting more runners and donations in the coming years. We enclose the press release and some of the pictures taken at our gathering point today for reference and sharing with your schoolmates. More pictures could be found at www.wahyanonefamily.org/m_runners2010.html later.

Dear Teammates, Wahyanites, Parents, Teachers, Alumni and Friends of Wah Yan,
Happy new year and may we wish you good health and a very fruitful 2010!
We are getting close to the event day so let's gear up ourselves for a safe and happy running. Our 3rd Clinic will be held this Sun, 17th January 2010 at Wah Yan Kowloon at 0800am. We have invited renowned alumni Dr Chung Sheung Chi Sydney (鍾尚志教授), Dr Tsang Ho Fai Thomas (曾浩輝醫生) and Dr Tsoi Chi Wah Danny (蔡智華醫生) to be our guest speakers at the Clinic. They will share their professional knowledge in running, health and physique.
We said we want to galvanise funding to support our needy students with merits in sports, so that they could equip themselves with proper gear and focus on achieving new heights. The Schools are working on plans for new coaches, training programmes, bursaries and scholarship schemes to be launched in 2010/11. They are allocating some seed money for these schemes from a very limited resource. And to help our Schools implement these meaningful initiatives soonest, the Foundation is matching the allocation.
Hence if you and your classmates could contribute now, you would help our Alma Mater render timely support to our needy Wahyanites. Simply click www.wahyanonefamily.org/doc/m2010Enrolment.pdf to make a gift now please. Our goal is to raise sufficient funding by February 2010. The minimum is $500,000 but the more the merrier. Please visit www.wahyanonefamily.org/m_runners2010.html for more information.
A rundown of the Clinic on Sunday, 17th January 2010 is attached for reference. You are cordially invited to attend. Please gather your classmates, friends and families to join.
