Dear Parents and Wahyanites,

According to the announcement of the Education Bureau on 13 February, 2020, all schools in Hong Kong will not resume before 16 March, 2020.

During this period of class suspension, e-learning is vital to our gentlemen. They are once again reminded to check iMail and Google Classroom daily and submit the e-Assignments on time.

Our teachers are now developing more interactive learning opportunities to take care of our gentlemen’s learning needs. The details of the arrangement will be disseminated to parents and students next week.

Thanks again for your trust and understanding.

You are God’s favorite Valentine. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Sincerely,

Wah Yan College, Hong Kong

Based on the new announcement, we would have adjustments on some of the arrangements we announced in our previous notices regarding the extended Chinese New Holidays and we will notify parents in due course.  Please check your iMail from time to time and pay attention to our website.

Thanks again for your trust and support.

Blessings from Father General on WYHK 100th and WYK 95th Anniversaries

Notwithstanding a humble start a hundred years ago – from a fledgling school of just two teachers and some 20 students, transcending into two of the leading Jesuit boys’ schools, locally and internationally – with a cherished history of nurturing men for and with others for almost a century, Wah Yan College, Hong Kong, and Wah Yan College, Kowloon are celebrating their 100th and 95th anniversaries this year.

On this momentous occasion, we are honoured to receive blessings from Father General Arturo Sosa, S.J. from the fullness of His grace.

As we celebrate amid the signs of the times, we shall always keep in mind that our anniversaries never happen as an independent event – it is the culmination of determination, courage and vision of our predecessors, synthesized with the effort made by the same visionary, courageous and determined succeeding generations. In the next century and beyond, we shall continue nurturing men of human excellence and forming men for and with others, with vision, courage and determination, while upholding our distinctive WahYan-esque values.

 

 

Dear Parents,

Further to the parent notices regarding the extension of the holidays due to the outbreak of novel coronavirus, please pay close attention to the following notes, especially during the period between 3 February, 2020 and 16 February, 2020:

1. Students should stay at home to minimize human contact to lower the chance of contracting the disease. While we discourage student attendance, the school campus will still be open for students whose families cannot take care of them. There will be no formal class or instructions held for those students attending and no activities and games (including ball games) are allowed on the school campus. All school activities are also cancelled during this period.

2. Online teaching materials and/or assignments for students will be provided by our teachers via iMail, eClass or Google Classroom. Please remind your son to check iMail, eClass or Google Classroom frequently, submit online assignments on time.

3. Reports Day on 15 Feb, 2020 will be cancelled. Further arrangement of Reports Day or delivery of report cards will be announced later.

4. For the F.6 Mock Exam arrangement, please check the notices to F.6 students and parents later today. 

5. Students who are traveling should return to Hong Kong before 3 Feb, 2020 as scheduled, and stay in Hong Kong upon return and stay healthy before returning to school when classes resume.

6. The whole school campus will be cleaned before classes resume. Students need to wear masks in school when classes resume. Students are advised to bring one spare mask to school in case the wearing mask is damaged during school hours. Please refer to the advice for public from the World Health Organization for recommendations on how to reduce exposure to and transmission of a range of illnesses (https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/advice-for-public)

We will continue to monitor the situation and send updates to parents, please check iMail and our website from time to time and pay attention to EDB announcements.

Thank you again for your trust and understanding. 

Sincerely, 

Wah Yan College, Hong Kong

Dear Parents,

In view of the latest development of the novel coronavirus infection cases, the Secretary of Education has announced the extension of the Chinese New Year holidays for schools till 17 February 2020. All extra-curricular activities during the extended holidays will be canceled or postponed. Please contact related teachers for detailed arrangements.

During the extension of the holidays, subject-based teaching materials and assignments are sent to students via eClass, iMail or Google Classroom. 

The details of the arrangement of mock exams, paper checking, Reports Day, and other necessary control and preventive measures when school resumes will be announced on 31 January 2020. Please check the school announcement on that day. 

We would like to take this chance to remind our young gentlemen to adopt the following measures:

- Perform hand hygiene frequently. Wash hands with liquid soap and water, and rub for at least 20 seconds. If hand washing facilities are not available, hand hygiene with 70 to 80 per cent alcohol-based handrub is an alternative.

- Cover mouth and nose with tissue paper when sneezing or coughing. Dispose of soiled tissues into a lidded rubbish bin.

- Wear a surgical mask in public areas or public transports, and avoid going to crowded places.

- When having respiratory symptoms, seek medical advice promptly and stay home for rest.

The wellbeing of our boys is our utmost priority as always. Thank you once again and wish everyone a blessed and healthy Year of the Rat! 

Sincerely, 

Wah Yan College, Hong Kong

Spanish Immersion Tour to San Sebastian 2019

A group of 20 students of our Spanish courses, led by Mr. John B. Lam, went on a tour in Spain to take a 3-week Spanish immersion course from 14 July – 5 August. They spent the first 2 weeks at an international Spanish camp in the suburb of San Sebastian and the third week living with host families in the town centre. They had Spanish lessons in the mornings and activities in the afternoons. Apart from studies and activities, they visited the city of San Sebastian, Bilbao, Hondarribia and Loyola in northern Spain and also crossed the border to visit Hendaye, Saint Jean de Luz and Biatrizz in France. One of the highlights of the tour was a visit to Loyola, the birthplace of St Ignatius, the founder of the Society of Jesus, on his feast day, 31 July. It was an unprecedented and historic visit made by Wahyanites to the sanctuary of Loyola in celebration of WYCHK’s centenary
