Father Naylor has been teaching at WYK since 1967. To understand why he loves to stay at 56 Waterloo Road all these years, visit his web site. We look forward to learning his interpretation of our history and the Jesuit education on the occasion of the Wah Yan anniversaries.
Members from the classes of 66, 67 and 68 gathered for a dinner in honour of the visiting Joseph Chan on 26 November. Joseph, the President of Fairchild TV, was in town to officiate the Miss Chinese Toronto Pageant.
With Leung Kon-Woh passing away on November 09, 2009, another link to the days of WYK at Nelson Street is broken. After graduating in the forties, Leung became a teacher at an Anglican school. Retired in Toronto, he reconnected with WYKAAO in the 2007 fall picnic. During his final years at a Long Term Care Centre, he was a polite and friendly gentleman to all the nursing staff and fellow residents. His absence was greatly missed.
Our sincerest condolences to his family.
President David Wong named it Moments in Time, 時光[瑞]道. Dominic Chan King-leung (64) undertook the project as producer-script writer-commentator, being helped by Jeff Mah (78) and a committee of researchers. The video was finally approved at King Chan Studio on November 08, 2009. The technical team, Jeff and Eric Li (95), had the souvenir DVD ready free for members at AGM dinner on Saturday, November 21. Here is the web version of Moments in Time. Click here and let us know if you would like to purchase a copy of the DVD ($10 (Can/US) or $75 (HK), shipping included).
Joseph Chan Kwok-Hung (1967), President of Fairchild Television, was one of the winter Olympic flame torch bearers in Vancouver. We are looking forward to seeing him in town to officiate the Miss Chinese Toronto Pageant 2009 later this month.
