Total eclipse begins 20:51 Jan 31
Maximum eclipse 21:29 Jan 31
Total eclipse ends 22:07 Jan 31
Moon leaves umbra 23:11 Jan 31
Moon leaves penumbra 0:08 Feb 01

It would be our honour to invite you and your family to join the event.

We will gather at 20:00 (main corridor) and dismiss at 22:30. We will provide a astronomical telescope and a binocular for observation. You are welcome to bring along with your own camera or telescope as well.

English and Chinese Tutors Wanted for TSW Project

Thanks to the support of both WYPSAs and your alumni, our free English tutorial project in TSW has progressed well and coming Feb. 2018, we shall start our 7th intake of under-privileged students in TSW and 2nd intake of ethnic minority students in Tuen Mun for our onsite tutorial program. We are now recruiting new tutors from the WY community to fill vacancies left behind by those serving alumni who want to take a break.

Since the start of our project in 2015, over 700 under-privileged students have benefited from our service and nearly 60 alumni have helped out. The continuous success of our project depends on our ability to come up with sufficient volunteer tutors who are willing to sacrifice a few hours of their free time every week for ten weeks to help the needy and, at the same time, uphold the ‘Men for and with Others’ spirit they have inherited from their Jesuit education. Details of our onsite program and the role of tutors are in the link below;

Interested alumni, their family members and friends are welcome to help and they should fill in and return the enrollment form in the link below;

http://tswetp.wahyanhk1971.org/index.php/enrollment-form/

A briefing session for new tutors will be held on Sat. 10 Feb. 2018 from 3 to 430 pm at the Common Room of WYK and all are welcome to attend. Past tutors will also be on hand to share their experience.

If you have any Q. in our project, please contact me by email (retireddanielmak@msn.com) or call/whatsapp me at 67079653. Thanks.
