Welcome to WYKAAO
Welcome to WYKAAO
2010 AGM/Dinner was held on Saturday Nov 27 in a Chinese restaurant in Scarborough. Over 80 members and guests attended the fun filled evening with games, latest news and presentations, amid many delicious dishes. A number of first timers showed up for the function which is most encouraging for the association. The night was wrapped up with the showing of a new version of ‘Moments in Time - the History of WYK’ narrated in English. Click here to view the pictures.
Victor J. Chen (69) shares some of his previous pictures taken in 1966-67 of a WYK choir and air club visits to Kai Tak and USS Constellation led by the late Fr Cunningham. Knowledge of WYK recently having won the Busan Choral Festival (韓國釜山合唱音樂節) caused him to get these pictures out. We certainly hope other alumni can do the same and share their pictures at WYK with all of us. Thanks Victor and here is the link.

From Mr. Laurence Tam in Hong Kong, "I consider this exhibition to be the most important one, because it signifies that the Cradle teaching method has finally been endorsed by the education institution for the training of teachers. This time, the exhibition is all in Chinese, because it is meant for the primary and secondary school teachers in Hong Kong.
Congratulations to Albert Fung, our former director, who received his Master Degree in Science at the convocation at the University of Toronto today.

On the occasion of Joseph Chu’s visit to Hong Kong, Gilbert Tsui shouted “fall in!” and a few of us managed to get together for a happy night at Hyatt Regency, Shatin, on October 28, 2010. Old timers returning overseas have always been good pretext for these get-togethers for otherwise too-busy people. On the night, lots of reminiscences of past gaiety were swapped, bringing alive things that happened over 30 years ago!
Expo67 took place in Montreal with the theme, "Man and His World".

Kelvin Ng (95), former President of WYKAAO, was back to Toronto for a short visit. He joined the Board meeting on November 4th, keeping everyone up-to-date on what’s happening in his work and personal life of the past few years. He also agreed to post pictures and articles to our website in the near future. Stay tuned! Alex Cheng (09) also attended the meeting as a guest. He is looking forward to entering university in Ontario next year; we are most happy to see a young and new force joining our association.
Philip Lee (WYK 60), Lieutenant Governor of Manitoba, was awarded Chinese Canadian Legend at a celebration event hosted by the Asian Business Network Association in a Richmond Hill hotel grand ballroom.
