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

Tin Shui Wai English Tutorial Project will start 6th and 2nd intake of under-privileged students for onsite and online tutorials in October 2017. The Project needs your help to join as tutors. Since the Project has two programs, the onsite and online tutorials, alumni can either go to TSW to teach general English or stay in the comfort of their home to teach online oral English. Details of the two programs and the roles of tutors are at here.

Interested alumni, their family members and friends who want to help should fill in and return the appropriate enrollment form (Onsite tutor / Online tutor)

A briefing session for new tutors will be held on 2 September 2017 (Sat) from 3:00 to 4:30 pm at the Common Room of WYK and all are welcome to attend. Past tutors will also be on hand to share their experience.

Life Planning Support will be started as a third program in the Project from October 2017. A group of WYK alumni plans to provide career talks and job attachments in specific fields of interest to the TSW Form 6 students who will be looking for work after graduation. Without family support and connection, they bitterly need help to find and secure jobs. This new program will help them better understand the various occupations and choices available to them, increase their ability and competitiveness in hunting for jobs that match with their interest and personality, and hopefully help them to strive for upward mobility in the long term. More details of this new program are available at here.

For any enquiry, please contact Daniel Mak (1971 WYHK) by email (retireddanielmak@msn.com) or call/whatsapp at 67079653.

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.
