Dear Wahyanites & Friends of Wah Yan,
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)
- OC’s Ticketing Work Group will email the relevant bank account details to year coordinators separately
- 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
- In case there is still available space in the venue, OC would announce details of Phase 2 table registration asap, probably in early May 2019
For registrations & enquiries, please submit your:
- Graduation year (F. 5 for HKCEE; F. 6 for DSE)
- Email address
- Contact number
- Number of table(s)
to the following OC’s Ticketing Work Group email:
Henry Yeung (WYHK ‘98)
Derek Lee (WYHK ‘01)
Eric Lai (WYK ‘97)
Ryan Wing (WYK ‘03)
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

With great sorrow, we mourn the passing of our dear alumnus and friend, Wallace YIU Hi Cheong. After combating cancer for some months, he passed away peacefully on 19 March 2019 in Canossa Hospital, Hong Kong. He is survived and will be dearly remembered by his wife, Catherine, and sons Chester and Josh. A graduate of Wah Yan College Hong Kong Class of 1975, Wallace furthered his study at the Hong Kong Polytechnic and had a distinguished career in accounting and financial fields, before retiring in 2017.
Wallace has been a long-time member and fervent supporter of the Wah Yan community. His incessant love for and dedication to his alma mater led him to serve as Council Member, Chairman, and President of the Wah Yan College Past Students Association in the 2000s. He also actively supported the work of Wah Yan One Family Foundation and Hong Kong International Institute of Educational Leadership founded by the late Fr. Alfred Deignan, and went to great lengths to care for the well-being of the Jesuit fathers in Hong Kong and the bonding of the alumni of the two Wah Yan colleges. He will be remembered truly as “a man for and with others”.
Funeral arrangements have been made as follows:
Vigil: 20:00, 9 April 2019 at Hong Kong Funeral Home, North Point
Final tribute: 10:00, 10 April 2019 at Hong Kong Funeral Home, North Point
Cremation: 11:30, 10 April 2019 at Cape Colinson Crematorium
