Appeal to Support Marathon 2015

We are very pleased to inform you that a 160-runner team has been formed to take part in the 10km Run of the Marathon 2015 Campaign. Unfortunately, the amount of donations gathered is very low (only around $100,000 was received thus far). Over the years, the revenues from this Campaign (approx. $6 million or $1 million each year) had been donated to support the continuous development of sport in the two Wah Yan.

If we fail to gather sufficient funding this year, we will not be able to support the ongoing training and coaching provided to young Wahyanites at the Schools. Their continuous development in physique and mental strength will be seriously affected. It is an urgent and important cause to be considered. Therefore, we would like to appeal to you to support this Campaign by making donations now!

In addition, the first training clinic will be held this Saturday, 22 November 2014, at 2:30pm at the Students’ Activities Centre, Wah Yan College, Kowloon. Guest speakers from adidas Hong Kong will deliver interesting tips on running and body exercises. We would like to invite you and your fellow alumni to go back to the School to see how our boys are fighting for their future.  Your presence will mean a lot to these dedicated runners because they are committed to run “For and with Others”. They need your encouragement and support.

Please distribute/share the letter enclosed with your Members to gather their support.  Should you need more information please call Monty Fong on 9092 9433. Thank you very much.

Message from Rev Fr Stephen Chow – A Big Thank You!

My dear Wahyanites, Colleagues, Parents, and Friends of Wah Yan,

What a marvelous Walkathon! I believe most, if not all, of the participants at the Mass and the Walkathon cum Fun Fair yesterday have enjoyed tremendously of the different funs and re-connections. I have alumni and friends coming up to me telling me how impressed they were by all the good arrangements and attention that have put in the day – the Mass, the Walk, and the Fun Fair!

It is undoubtedly a family celebration that confirms the spirit of Unity in Diversity of Wah Yan and the Jesuit. We can come together from a diversity of backgrounds, perspectives and concerns, even with different stances regarding HK today, and to put our hearts in the one mission, i.e., to help create a happier society and a wholesome world by providing quality whole-person Jesuit education to our current and future ‘Men-For-and-With-Others’!

Thank God for the great weather and for all of you, especially the Organizing Committee of the Walkathon cum Fun Fair, the Liturgical Committee, and all the selfless supporting units, who have contributed in varying degrees for the fruitfulness of the day!

Gratefully,
Fr. Chow

Message from Rev. Fr. Stephen Chow

My Dear Wahyanites,

In times of uncertainty and controversy, what we need is calmness and wisdom, not violence. Democracy without loving respect would amount to crudeness and leadership void of the spirit of service would amount to authoritarianism. Neither crude democracy nor authoritarianism can bring joy and peace to our community.

What I have witnessed in the past couple of days was the mature disposition of our students at Wah Yan College, Kowloon, be they the ones who were joining class boycott or not joining. My colleagues have displayed superb professionalism as Ignatian educators as they counseled our students and provided learning opportunities to our students in class boycott. This is indeed heartening! Wah Yan College, Hong Kong has been under class suspension so far following the instruction of the Education Bureau for all schools in the Wanchai, Central and Western districts. But I can safely assume the same maturity is with our students and the level of dedication is with our educators of WYHK.

At this historic time of Hong Kong, it is understandable that our Wahyanites-in-school would like to take some supportive actions and contribute to the making of Hong Kong history. Whatever we do, we must stay calm and be wise with our actions. There are different ways for you to contribute at this historic time. So, please do not consider joining the mass on the street is the only desirable option. While the school cannot condone our students to join the mass movement on the street, please secure consent from your parents before you go to the street. Please do not let your loved ones worry about your safety. Your well-being is very important to them and Wah Yan. This sentence from our School Prayer is particularly meaningful to us at this juncture: “Be with me in the streets, so that I may be a credit to my school and to those who love me and to myself.”

My fellow Wahyanites, the future of Hong Kong is in your hands. Take up this sacred burden with a pure and sincere heart. Guard yourselves against any force, measures or actions that can corrupt your noble intention. At the same time, learn from the spirit of our Jesuit/Wah Yan education. We provide freedom and respect for the different perspectives to coexist and interact as we construct a creative synthesis based upon our common desire.

May God guard and bless our beloved Hong Kong!

Fr. Stephen Chow, S.J.
