James Tong Scholarship at WYK in support of students in need.  Please click here to view the Appeal Letter by Principal Chung


James Tong passed away on October 4, 2020.  His wife Marita wrote a touching tribute in which she said in lieu of flowers, “James will be very pleased if you do an unexpected act of generosity in his name.”  To honour her wish and in the spirit of what James had done all his life, we looked into different options by way of setting up a James Tong fund to help students in Hong Kong. We are pleased that WYK has a “Fr. Kelly Educational Fund Ltd” in place, and under this fund, we can easily set up a Professor James Tong Scholarship for Resilience” (see separate document attached) to help students in need.  Recipients of James Tong scholarship, each in the amount of HK$10,000, will be WYK students from S.1 to S.6 who have shown resilience in adversity and displayed satisfactory academic and non-academic performance despite family financial hardship.  Under this fund, WYK will report to us each year how many James Tong scholarships are awarded using donations to James Tong Scholarship.
