Update on Tin Shui Wai English Tutorial Project

Daniel Mak (1971 WYHK) recently shared with us the latest update on Tin Shui Wai English Tutorial Project:

Dear Mr. Julian Leung, Chairman of WYHK PSA and Mr. Raymond Chow, Chairman of WYK PSA,

 

Thanks for inviting me to your board meeting recently and agreeing to become a partner of the Free English Tutorial Project in Tin Shui Wai (TSW) initiated by the Class 1971 WYHK.  I am writing to thank your Assn. for the relentless support and help you have tendered in the past year to make our project a continuous success and to, through you, pay tribute to those alumni and family members who have responded to your appeal for help and to call for even more alumni to come forward to participate in this very meaningful project to help more under-privileged students in TSW.

Up-to-date, we have three intakes of students since March 2015 benefiting together over 300 under-privileged students in eleven different schools. The latest intake started in Feb. 2016 and will end in June. Through publicity and appeal of your Assn., we have been able to recruit in these three intakes sufficient WY alumni volunteer tutors and substitutes who are willing to sacrifice their time and effort to help improve not only the English but, more importantly, the self-image of these under-privileged students. Their families are all receiving public assistance and therefore cannot afford to send their kids to private tutorial classes even if they are promising but are academically behind because of lack of proper guidance and support at home.

I would like to take this opportunity to make tribute to the following 26 alumni and their family members who come from different professions and have played an important part in the project:

They are living example of alumni who have truly upheld the ‘Men For and with Others’ WY spirit to serve and and help the needy in society.

I hope, through your website and appeal to other alumni and family members, they can follow suit and come forward to become tutors of the fourth intake which will begin in Sept. this year and which we aim to expand to cover more schools and help even more students. Alumni who are interested to help can go to the following website in which more details of the project are given and contact me at the telephone and email address contained therein for enrollment:

Last but not the least, we are also indebted to Fathers Alfred Deignan and Stephen Chow as well as the two WY principals, Dr. So Ying Lun and Mr. Warren Chung, for their unfailing support and regular appeal to alumni to join our project. My thanks also go to Mr. Sze Chung Fai, Jeff, a WYK alumni and the Political Assistant to the Secretary for Education for his valuable advice in setting up this project.

I hope our partnership will continue to flourish, more alumni will join our project and more under-privileged kids will benefit from our joint effort. Many thanks.

 

Cheers,
Daniel Mak
Class of 1971 WYHK
