全球華仁舊生會議將於三藩市舉行

第十五屆全球香港和九龍華仁書院舊生會議,定於本年7月21、 22及23日在三藩市舉行,籌備工作由華仁舊生會三藩市灣區分會,現任會長梁展文領導,籌備會主席梁頴宇負責協調。主題是《以服務燃出華仁仔之道》;「華仁仔」是曾經就讀香港或九龍華仁書院舊生的通稱,校友間使用這稱謂感到非常親切。

據籌備委員曾永燊指出,今屆得到同是天主教耶穌會主辦的三藩市大學 (美國舊金山大學)利瑪竇中西文化歷史研究所鼎力支持,共同舉辦這次鈙會,除了安排美麗環境的會議場地,一流設施,還照顧了部份參加者的住宿。該研究所主任余安道博士會為參加者分享 《利瑪竇的耶穌會傳統:帶出中國和世界 ‘服務他人’的心火。》(Matteo Ricci利瑪竇The Jesuit Tradition:Engaging China & the World as “Men for Others”);吳小新博士將介紹研究所對華仁仔的支援,例如陳綸緒和譚志誠兩位學者的研究成果。大學校長 Rev. Paul J. Fitzgerald. S.J.已應允出席7月22日早上的開幕禮及致訓詞。

節目統籌周守濓透露:經古嘉文校友的努力,邀請到米勒中心的首席運作主任史蒂苵女士作專題演講,介紹在南灣推行的 GSBI 計畫經驗,鼓勵現在和未來的青少年,南灣的大企業,共同合作,為人服務,共同改進社會,改變世界。

另外一個專題由朱可達博士談<華仁的浪漫>。梁展文報告灣區舊生支持的獎學金成績。

兩校現任校監周守仁神父,香港華仁校長蘇英麟博士,九龍華仁鍾衛良校長已應允出席大會,與參加者面對面交談,大會亦已安排在星期六晚,與行動不便的前任校監狄恆神父舉行越洋視像會議,使全體關心母校現況及未來發展計畫的校友有機會進一步了解實況,特別有關香港華仁轉直資的議題,可以有機會深入明白箇中原因,及對傳統的耶穌會教育的精神有什麼影響。

據聞來自現居於世界各地,包括香港、深圳、澳洲、羅省、溫哥華、多倫多、候斯頓、美國東岸、和三藩市灣區的校友已踴躍報名,料屆時定有一番熱鬧。未報名者請參閱網頁 www.wyic2017.org或電郵wyic2017@gmail.cominfo@wyic2017.org 查詢

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.
