Our school song was born in about 1960. It was composed by a Filipino Sister Carmeia who was one of the best musicians in Hong Kong and a teacher in St. Paul's Secondary School. Furthermore, Fr. Patrick McGovern S.J., who was a teacher in Wah Yan in 1960 and a member of the Legislative Council, wrote the lyrics on this beautiful melody.

This is the dear school where we learn how to treasure

And keep for a lifetime all that's noble and true,
To serve the Lord God in the love of our neighbour,
O Wah Yan, we are proud of and grateful to you.

In all that we do whether duty or pleasure,
we count not the cost, but unselfishly strive,
What's mean and unmanly we shun with displeasure,
Come praise or come blame, we hold our heads high.

Old Boys of Wah Yan cherish fond recollections
Of those who here taught us the best things to choose;
Home of our friendships, our hopes, and affections,
O Wah Yan all our lives we'll be worthy of you.
