Joint School Interview Workshop with MSS (29th June, 2019)
The Joint School Interview Workshop, co-organised by the WYPSA and Marymount Secondary School (MSS), was successfully held at Wah Yan on 29th June, 2019. The turnout this year was particularly encouraging, as more than 70 Wahyanites and 30 Marymountians participated in the event. We are also grateful for the 26 mentors from both schools who volunteered to share their valuable interview experience with all the students.
At 2:15pm, the event began with speeches given by Mrs. Catherine Li, principal of MSS, and Mr. Julian Ng, vice-principal of WYHK. Speeches from Mrs. Irene Tung from the Joint School Mentorship Programme and Mr. Willie Cheng, Vice President of the WYHKPSA, completed the introduction session.
The mentees were divided into twelve groups and had their first workshop in the classrooms. The first session included a self-introduction, one-on-one interview and group discussion. Mentors concluded their sessions with their feedback and reflection.
After the first session, mentees gathered back in the rooftop classroom for a presentation on interview skills. Mentors shared their professional experiences on interview skills and manners. They were greeted with insightful questions by the mentees in the following Q&A session. The groups then returned to the classrooms to participate in a second round of group discussion practice before dismissing at roughly 5:30pm.
We are glad to have received plenty of positive feedback immediately after the event from mentors and mentees alike. The positive responses strongly encourage us to embrace this event and improve even further in the future running of this annual highlight of the Mentorship Programme.

Further to our table registration announcement on 3 Mar 2019, we have received overwhelming responses from all over the world thanks to the tremendous support from you. We have since worked towards securing an increase in venue capacity so as to accommodate the requests.
For better planning of the event & facilitation of our overseas Wahyanites in their flight arrangement, we are pleased to announce the start of Phase 1 registration confirmation & collection of payments from 1 Apr 2019:
- Phase 1 payment process will be from 1 Apr 2019 to 30 Apr 2019 via year coordinators (year coordinators will collect payment from various participants & pay to OC before 30 Apr 2019)

- Only full payment is considered valid table sales. Unpaid registrations would be void after 30 Apr 2019 & the relevant year coordinators will have to register again in Phase 2

Donation and Sponsorship
"Our next task is to embrace all members of the Wah Yan Community under one roof, including our beloved Jesuits, retired teachers and staff members, so that they can enjoy a memorable casting of talents from both Schools. We also hope to transform the Dinner into a déjà vu brimful of memoirs of Wah Yan. In order to do so, we need stages with adequate audio and visual facilities; we also need creative design and modest decorations. Resource input of around $5 million is inevitable. Therefore, we would like to call on your generous help to fulfill these task orders as brothers in arms." Below please find the apeal letter and donation form:
May God bless all of us to have a memorable night in the Gala Dinner!
P.S. OC would post a list of year coordinators in due course for your reference. For parents & those Wahyanites who can’t identify your year coordinators to form table(s), please leave your contacts via Online Enquiry Form (Google Form) https://goo.gl/forms/T0guQ7piDFVofWAn2. On a best effort basis, we would forward the forms received to your coordinators who'll assist you on registration. Please note the Online Enquiry Form isn’t part of the registration process due to the preference of whole-table registration via coordinators at this stage
