  • Year coordinators to pay in 14 calendar days upon receipt of registration confirmation, only full payment is considered for valid registration (valid table sale)
  • Please note the registration process is not merely on first-come-first-serve basis. However, OC would take into account chronological sequence of registrations in alloting number of tables
    In case there is still available space in the venue, OC would firstly handle those unfulfilled table requests recorded in Phase 1 & then proceed to accept new registrations in Phase 2. Such process will repeat & so on….
  • OC would announce details of Phase 2 table registration in around mid of May, if any
  • OC reserves the right of final decisions and interpretation of the event

P.S. OC would post a list of year coordinators in due course for your reference. For parents & those Wahyanites who can’t identify your year coordinators to form table(s), please leave your contacts via Online Enquiry Form (Google Form) https://goo.gl/forms/T0guQ7piDFVofWAn2.

各位港九華師兄弟,相信大家都知道:華仁「穿越百年 同步立新」晚宴將於2019年12月1日假香港會議展覽中心新翼大會堂舉行,小編剛收到籌備委員會(OC)關於第一階段訂枱的信息💓!

——————————————
簡單撮要一下給大家知道:

  1. 第一階段的訂枱登記由3月4日(星期一)開始至5月19日(星期日)結束;
  2. 這階段將會以枱數為基礎單位(即是1枱,2枱,3枱等等)(每枱以12位計),每枱港幣18,000元正(即每人港幣1,500元正)。
  3. 因為兩華畢業生眾多,為保持OC和有興趣參加的師兄弟溝通,OC希望盡量跟每年的聯絡人☎️聯繫(可以是class coordinator 或class rep或港九華舊生會代表等等都可以),以達到準確知道第一階段的報名枱數;
  4. 但OC都明白有部分師兄弟可能忘記了甚或不知道誰是class coordinator,所以訂枱小組貼心地♥️預備了一張網上查詢表格 (https://goo.gl/forms/T0guQ7piDFVofWAn2)📲給大家,OC會將資料交給相關的class coordinator以作協調;
  5. 另外,兩校家長亦可用上述表格表達興趣,相關資訊會轉交港華家教會或九華家長會跟進及協調;
  6. 仲有,大家唔駛心急比錢💵住,OC會在5月31日或之前先同class coordinator 確認第一階段枱數及人數,並請各class coordinator 協調各自班級的收款,再存入聯合校慶籌備委員會的相關銀行戶口。
  7. 最後請留意,因會展場地所限,及OC預期大家會對華仁百年慶祝有好大興趣😍,所以報名枱數有可能會有超於場地枱數,所以OC懇請大家早點報名,咁樣OC就可以盡早找再不同方案增加枱數,令更多師兄弟能一同慶祝華仁校慶🎆🥂🍾!
    ——————————————

請所有class coordinator 記得儘快與港九華的校慶晚宴訂枱聯絡人報枱數喇!

Recruitment of Volunteer English Tutors for TSW On-site English Tutorial Program

In the past four years since establishment in 2015, our free on-site English tutorial program has expanded progressively, and currently serves six secondary schools in Tin Shui Wai and six in Kwai Chung. Over 1200 under-privileged students have benefited from our service, and some 60 alumni have been recruited to help out, mainly through the support of the two past students associations. In view of the expansion, we now need more tutors from the Wah Yan community.

If you or your family wish to put into practice the spirit of “Men for and with Others” and are willing to sacrifice a few hours per week of your free time (weekdays after school or Saturday mornings, for about ten weeks per school term) to help the needy by serving as an on-site English tutor, please visit the following websites containing details of our program and the roles of tutors, and an enrollment form:
