Wah Yan Medical Information on COVID-19 Support Scheme 2022
The Past Students' Associations of WYHK and WYK, in collaboration with both schools and the schools' Parent-Teacher / Parents’ Associations, are launching the Wah Yan Medical Information on COVID-19 Support Scheme, under which a group of Wah Yan (Hong Kong and Kowloon) alumni medical practitioners will endeavour to provide general medical advice to members of our Wah Yan community on COVID-19.
The scope of medical advice offered will be general in nature, provided from the perspective of a generalist medical practitioner, and will be limited to aspects of prevention (esp. vaccination) and self-care for COVID-19 patients or close contacts. The medical advice is not meant to cover government policies and operations (e.g. quarantine period, quarantine arrangement).
If you are a COVID-19 patient / close contact or have COVID-19 related queries and would like to ask related question(s) under this scheme (such as vaccination), please contact the following representatives via WhatsApp written or voice message:
- Paul Yu, 97273315 (WYHKPSA)
- Aaron Chan, 96336561 (WYHKPSA)
Depending on the number of questions received and the complexity of individual questions, our volunteer alumni medical team will reply as soon as possible and, in any event, no later than 2 days. The language of the answer will be the same as the question raised, i.e. a question posted in Chinese will be answered in Chinese.
The commencement date will be 19 April 2022 (Tuesday). This service scheme will tentatively last for 3 months and be reviewed thereafter.
We hope the resources from our alumni can support and help our Wah Yan community navigate through these challenging times.
1. The scheme is only available to members of the Wah Yan community, defined as (i) current and retired staff members of WYHK or WYK, (ii) past students of WYHK or WYK, (iii) current students of WYHK or WYK and their parents; and (iv) members of the Society of Jesus in Hong Kong.
2. All information provided under the scheme is for the enquirer's personal reference and informational purposes only. The information provided is not intended to substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment and does not constitute medical or other professional advice.
3. Reliance on any information provided under this scheme is solely at the enquirer's own risk. The organizers accept no responsibility for any injury or loss of property due to any such reliance.

Fr. Stephen Chow, S.J.’s Appointment as New Bishop of Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong
WYHKPSA congratulates Rev. Fr. Stephen Chow Sau-yan, S.J. (“Father Chow”), our alma mater’s School Supervisor, on his appointment by the Holy Father as the New Bishop of Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Father Chow who has been serving Wayanites for all these years. While as Supervisor of Wah Yan College, Hong Kong, Father Chow has taught us to hold true to our calling as Wahyanites to be “men for and with others”, and to embrace differences within our school community with “unity in plurality”.
The Past Student Association calls on Wahyanites to join in praying for God’s blessings for Father Chow, Wah Yan Colleges, the Jesuit Chinese Province and the Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong.
We look forward to having Father Chow to serve and lead the Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong with wisdom and love.
