Summer Service and Learning Program for Secondary Schools

“Summer Service and Learning Program for Secondary Schools” (扶智荒週), a service program co-organised by Tsinghua University, Beijing (“Tsinghua”) and Tseng Hin Pei Charity Fund Limited (the “Charity Fund”), offers rare for secondary students in Hong Kong opportunity to experience poverty and hardship in rural China, through volunteer teaching and other activities onsite. Mr Felix Tseng (WYK 81), former president of WYKPSA, is the supervisor of the Program.

The first cohort of 40 students and volunteer teachers including from both Wah Yans had completed a 9-day Program on July 2016. Their reflections are available at https://youtu.be/XALThzvOr6g?list=PLWpfminPx8mPGNwyloSw4epzRyaRq_ndG&t=11. The second cohort will be launched from 12-20 July 2017. To date, up to 50 students (some are from both Wah Yans) enrolled come from less privileged families who cannot afford the fee required. The Program is appealing to you to consider supporting these young guns to join this mission.

Leaflet and donation form (deadline: 17 April 2017) are available for perusal and sharing. Should you need more information please call Mr James Wu on 2196 2333. Thank you very much for your support.

5th Intake of Recruitment of Tutors for Tin Shui Wai English Tutorial Project

Tin Shui Wai English Tutorial Project is a project initiated by Class 1971 WYHK in 2015. The project aims at providing a free English tutorial service to the teenagers in Form 2 to 4 whose parents are receiving public assistance in Tin Shui Wai. From Sep 2016, the project became an initiative of Wah Yan One Family Foundation. The last four intakes recruited some 50 Wahyanites, their family members and friends as tutors to offer from April 2015 onward, some 50 classes each with four to 12 students, thus helping nearly 500 under-privileged students for a duration of eight to 10 weeks. The project is expending to cover even more needy students in our fifth intake starting from Feb 2017, which needs you and your family members to participate as volunteers.

A briefing session will be held at WYK (Common Room) at 3 pm on Sat. 14 Jan. 2017 to answer your questions. For any enquiry, please contact Daniel Mak (1971 WYHK) at retireddanielmak@msn.com or WhatsApp/call 6707 9653. Further information about the project, enrollment form, Q&A, and recommendations from Fathers and WY Principals can be found on the project web site.
