Formation of Interest Group

Do you want to form an interest group with other Wahyanites?

WYKPSA has been endeavouring to gather the alumni of our School together.

Do you want to gather a group of alumni from WYK who share the same interest or work in the same industry or work in the nearby area together?

One of the examples is the Medical Fraternity, which is able to gather, inter alia, doctors from WYK and WYHK. Each year the Medical Fraternity organizes an annual dinner and there were always over 100 alumni from the medical industry joining the same. Another example is the Financial Services Interest Group, which gather Wahyanites working in the financial services industry together and the members will have lunch in Central at regular interval.

Other established interest groups include, inter alia, bridge interest group, hiking interest group, “Chek Lap Kok” interest group (which gather alumni working in the airport area), etc.

You can also take the lead to establish an interest group! There is simply no boundary for the type of interest group which may be established.

If you wish to form an interest group, WYKPSA can help you to disseminate your message to all alumni in its database to see if any Wahyanite is interested to join you. If you are interested to form an interest group, please send an email to wahyanpsa@gmail.com, setting out the name of your proposed interest group, a simple description of the scope of activities you plan to organize and your contact details.

FAQ

You may have the following enquiries in your mind about the establishment of an interest group:

1. What is the status of an interest group?

The purpose of an interest group is to gather alumni from Wah Yan who share same interest or work in the same industry or work in the nearby area together. It is NOT a formal entity nor a sub-organization/ sub-committee of WYKPSA. An interest group is totally independent of WYKPSA.

2. What is your responsibility if you become a convenor of an interest group?

If you become a convenor of an interest group, you are not required to report to WYKPSA. The internal organizational structure and the type of activities to be organized by an interest group will be decided by the convenor and the members of the interest group. WYKPSA will not involve nor interfere in the decision-making nor discussion of an interest group. If you need the help of WYKPSA to disseminate your message to all alumni, WYKPSA will be prepared to do so.

3. What type of interest group which may not be formed?

As a matter of general principle, there is simply no boundary for the type of interest group to be formed. Nevertheless, WYKPSA may not be able to offer its assistance if the nature of the interest group is controversial. For example, WYKPSA may have difficulties to help you to form an interest group relating to gambling. This may cause negative publicity to our School and WYKPSA.
