90/95th Anniversaries Concert 華仁‧我家

WY_Hacken_Poster_V2_20(W)x30(H)_Green_20150402

Following the successful completion of the first three Anniversaries Celebration events, namely the Walkathon, Gratitude Dinner and Jesuit Education Forum, we are pleased to report to you that an overall attendance of more than 3,500 alumni, students, parents, school staff members and friends has been recorded. We also saw ample handshakes, smiles and hugs on campus and social media, all being ceremonious signs of brotherhood, reunion and bonding.

In terms of fundraising, we have only netted a sum of HK$20 million (pledged and received) as donations thus far. Way below the $60-­million target, which is indispensable to the continuance of small class teaching and whole person development programmes in the two Wah Yans in the next 5 years, we are appealing to you for support and dissemination of this important message.

The finale of our Anniversaries Celebration programmes will be the Fundraising Concert, to be held on Saturday, 1st August 2015 at 8:00 pm at the Hong Kong Coliseum. Our school orchestras, choirs, parents, alumni, and Jesuit Fathers will showcase their very best on stage. What’s more encouraging, our renowned alumnus Mr Hacken Lee and distinguished celebrity Ms Agnes Chan will also perform together with our young Wahyanites. We therefore call upon you to render your unfailing support by joining this spectacular “homecoming” event. The donation and ticket reservation form is enclosed for perusal and actions. Please call 2511 3729 / 2891 9970 or click www.wahyanonefamily.org/concert-2015.html if you need more information.

Thank you and looking forward to welcoming you at the Coliseum.

Marathon 2015 Donation Period Extended

We are most pleased to inform you that the Marathon 2015 Campaign has been smoothly completed last Sunday. 145 out of our 160 runners finished their races. Two members were ranked top 20 among 7,000 runners in the 10km Run One session. Unfortunately, the amount of donations received to date was only around $200,000. Thus we would like to extend our donation period until 31 March 2015 to galvanise more support for sports development in the two Wah Yans. Please help disseminate this message and the appeal letter to your network.
