We launched Round One of our DSS consultation on 13th April, 2017 with uploading of our consultation document to our DSS Consultation Tab on our website. In these 3 months, we have received numerous comments and suggestions via various face-to-face consultation sessions, meetings as well as mail and email messages. Let me take this chance to thank you for your valuable inputs! Such exchanges have facilitated all parties' understanding of issues and concerns both about challenges the school is facing and DSS as a solution. They have also helped develop ideas to address concerns and shape a renewed WYHK imbued with more energy to better serve the Jesuit Vision.
It is about time to wrap up Round 1 of the Consultation with preparation of an interim consultation report for consideration by the Jesuit Education Board. If you still have comments and suggestions on the current Consultation Document, please send them to us latest by 15th Aug, 2017 (Tue).
May I take this chance to thank you again for being companions on this journey to find the best way forward for WYHK. While the issues on hand may seem controversial, I am pleased to say that most exchanges so far have been conducted in a rational, respectful and open-minded manner, and for this I would like to express my heartfelt appreciation. It is my sincere wish that as we carry on with the consultation exercise, all in the Wah Yan community can continue to conduct the matter in the "Wah Yan" way we are so proud of - a way that demonstrates our attitude of open-mindedness, our spirit of "unity in diversity" and our love of Wah Yan.
