Happy New Year

We are happy to present the happy moments of 1998 AGM and we look forward to having another successful AGM in 2016.

December 1998
Annual General Meeting, 1998
Our AGM was held on Sunday, November 29, at New World Seafood Restaurant in North York. Before the meeting began, we all sang the School Hymn. After the official business was done, there was a slide presentation of the history of our school from 70 Portland Street, Mongkok to our present campus. The course of time was witnessed by many of our members attending the dinner. Our most senior member, Tso Kwok Cheung, 90, started from the beginning and graduated in 1929 at Nelson Street. He proudly displayed the original diploma signed by the then Principal, Mr. Chow Ching-Lam, whom many of the past students fondly addressed with respect as Fatty Chow. Jackie Mac spent all his school days at Nelson Street and graduated in ’47. (Jackie is now retired and works as a volunteer at a community centre.) Then there were others from Hong Kong Wah Yan P.M. School moving to the new premises in Waterloo Road in 1952. As new buildings were being shown, the younger members of the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s revisited their youthful days at Wah Yan. A delicious Chinese dinner was served, punctuated by games and prizes. All children of Wahyanites received Christmas presents when they could say the name of their father in Chinese. One little boy could offer only `Tam Yee Sun’ (Dr. Tam), drawing laughter from all present.
