Q 01. Who are the sponsoring bodies of WYHK, WYK and PUWY?

The sponsoring body of Wah Yan College Hong Kong is The Society of Jesus while the sponsoring body of Pun U Association Wah Yan Primary School (PUWY) is Pun U Association but administrated by Wah Yan College, Hong Kong.

Q 02. What is SMC and who are the members?

SMC is the School Management Committee, which is established under the Education Ordinance to manage the school. The SMC is the highest decision making body of the school after the sponsoring body. The School Supervisor is the chairman of the SMC appointed by the Society of Jesus and members of the SMC are called School Managers. Members include nominated members from the sponsoring body, the principal, assistant principal/s, representatives from the teachers, past students and parents and an independent school manager.

Q 03. How are students admitted to Wah Yans?

For WYHK, 30% of Form One students are enrolled by the school through Discretionary Stage and the other 70% Form One students are allocated by the EDB through Central Allocation. Altogether about 75% of Form One students come from PUWY. For Form 2-4, students have to sit for the Entrance Examination which is usually held in early July and they will be enrolled only when there are vacancies made available by departing students. Students from other schools will not be enrolled to Form 5 & 7 usually.

For WYK, 130 students in Form One are centrally allocated by the Education Bureau from primary schools in the Yau-Tsim-Mong District and 60 are admitted at the discretion of WYK.

Q 04. Why are the two Wah Yans producing fewer 9-A students in recent years?

In WYHK, we seek to nurture our students whose acquisition of knowledge and skills is joined to Christian values, who will also become reflective learners. We also target at excellence, which is one of our characteristic of Jesuit education. However, we do not strive to produce students with 9 or 10 A. Even then, we still have at least one student achieving 9 or 10 distinctions every year since 1992, with the exception in 2003 and 2004.

As for WYK, it is our aim to provide an environment for natural, happy and healthy growth of our students.  It is not our policy or our sole aim to train 9-A or 10-A students and very few students in WYK enter for more than 8 subjects.

Q 05. How are the two schools performing at public exams in '07-'08?

Hong Kong Certificate of Education Examination (HKCEE)

WYHK:
149 students sat for the HKCEE examination, obtaining 88 Distinctions (6.8%), 610 Credits (47.1%) and an 88.8% overall passing rate. 99 (66.4%) of the candidates scored 14 points or above from their best 6 subjects. 6 boys scored 6 or more ‘A’ grades and are qualified for the Early Admission Scheme (EAS) including Chung Man Ting with 10As and Wong Wai Tsun with 8As.

WYK:
201 sat for the HKCEE examination, obtaining 112 Distinctions, 597 Credits and an 87% overall passing rate.  60% of the candidates scored 14 or more points in their best six subjects. 4 students qualified for the Early Admission Scheme (EAS).  Tse Ming Hon scored 8 distinctions (including two 5*s in Chinese and English) and one B Credit in the nine subjects for which he entered. 

Hong Kong Advanced Level Examination (HKAL)

WYHK:
67 students sat for the HKAL Examination, scoring an 85.7% passing rate. 57 candidates have been enrolled in local tertiary education institutions, 5 are attending overseas universities, 2 are repeating in F7 and 3 students' situations are pending at the time of publication.

WYK:
86 sat for the examination, scoring 15 distinctions and 122 credits.  69 (80%) candidates have been offered places in local universities for degree and sub-degree courses (58 in degree course), the majority (43) of them in HKU, CUHK and HKUST.  It is estimated that about 11 went overseas for their tertiary education.

Q 06. Are the Schools in danger of becoming CMI (Chinese as the Medium of Instruction)?

The relevance of the following information is subjected to the changing MOI (Medium of Instruction) policy proposed by the Education Department Bureau (EDB).

No. Our EMI (English as the Medium of Instruction) status to a certain extent depends on the performance of PUWY. In the recent 3 years, we have enrolled over 90% of students capable to receive instruction in English, i.e., EMI schools, which is higher than the minimum requirement of 85%.

Since we have to enroll at least 85% of our Form One students allocated through the Central Allocation from PUWY, we depend largely on the performance of their students. Gratefully we are not in any immediate danger of losing our EMI status.

For WYK, the percentage has been around 96-97 and it does not show signs of dropping.

Q 09. What are our students' achievements in social services in '07-'08?

Social Services

WYHK:
In the afternoon of May 12, 2008, an earthquake measuring 7.9 on the Richter scale hit Sichuan Province, a mountainous region in western China. By the next day, the death toll stood at 12,000, with another 18,000 missing. Over 15 million people lived in the affected area, including almost 4 million in the city of Chengdu. Nearly 2,000 of the dead were students and teachers caught in the collapsed schools. On May 17, we sent appeals to students, parents, and staff to help the victims of the Earthquake in a donation campaign. Thanks to their enthusiastic response, the grand total collected within the timeframe was HK$430,000.

Q 10. How are our Scouts & Red Cross doing in recent years?

Scouts

WYHK:

The Wah Yan 15th HK Scout Group continues to prosper. Our scouts from the HKXV unit represented Hong Kong at the World Jamboree held in the United Kingdom August 2007. In diverse Scouting competitions they repeatedly receive awards including Championship in the Commissioner’s Shield, and Scout Raffle Ticket Selling Competition for the Pun U Cubs in the recent years.  More notably in the Carlton Competition 2008 for secondary school Scouts in HK, they took the overall HK Championship and they have done so for more than 6 times before. In the past 3 years, we have altogether 14 scouts presented with Chief Scout Awards and 46 scouts presented with Golden Bauhinia Awards, the highest awards for scouts in Hong Kong.

Q 12. What are the funds to which I can donate directly to WY and her sponsoring body?

In WYHK, we have established different funds for different purposes. We welcome donation from our past students, parents and friends of Wah Yan. You can send cheques made payable to “Wah Yan College Hong Kong” to Wah Yan College Hong Kong, 281 Queen's Road East, Wanchai, Hong Kong. Please specify your desired fund/s, your name and contact information. Tax exemption receipts will be issued to donations of HK$100 or above.

(i) Jesuit Education Fund – to support the running and development of Wah Yan College Hong Kong by providing additional teaching facilities and resources to enhance the quality of education for our Wahyanites in addition to the government grants.

(ii) Jesuit Health Fund– to support the regular medical checkup of all Jesuits connected to the Wah Yans in Hong Kong. The Fund supports partially the cost of their medication when necessary.

(ii) Scholarship Fund – to provide grants for education of students with financial need as well as scholarships for the outstanding students of WYHK.

(iii) Relief Fund– to provide limited financial assistance to students with sudden change in family or suffering from serious sickness that would need long and expensive treatment.

(iv) School Development Project (SDP) Fund– to support the additional development in the School Improvement Project (SIP) which was subsidized by the EDB, and to redevelop the School Hall into an indoor gymnasium complex with additional rooms and other facilities.

Q 13. What are the funds to which I can donate to WY through the PSA?

You can also donate to WYHK through the PSA for the General Fund, which is used by the school to support students’ activities, Let’s Fly Higher projects, and to acquire additional facilities for the students. There is also the Jesuit Nursing Fund held by the School. But as donations solely come from old boys, it is the PSA which regularly see to it that the Fund remains at a sufficient level to meet medical needs and daily nursing care of the Jesuit fathers.

Q 14. What are the funds to which I can donate to WY through other parties?

You can also donate to the Wah Yan Trust Fund which was established by Fr. Barrette, S.J. in 1982. It is to provide financial assistance to students from both WYHK & WYK to complete their tertiary education either locally or in the overseas.

You can also donate to Wah Yan One Family Foundation (often referred dearly to as the “OFF”) which was established with the purpose to provide financial assistance to implement the “Small Class” teaching in our two schools. 

For WYK, it is the Fr. Kelly Educational Fund Limited. Its function is to donate money to the school for educational expenses that are not covered by the EDB.

Q 15. What is the Schools' position on DSS (Direct Subsidy Scheme)?

The two Wah Yans have no intention to adopt the DSS system in the near future. Fr. A.J. Deignan, S.J. has put his letter concerning our stance and the reasons on   the respective PSA homepages. Please kindly refer to the letter for further information.

Q 16. Can WY implement small class education without going DSS?

We believe we can. We have implemented small class teaching for a few years by using Government funds provided through the Additional Capacity Enhancement Grant (known as the ACEG) to employ more teachers without converting to DSS. With the support of many enthusiastic alumni and parents, the Wah Yan One Family Foundation (WYOFF) was set up to provide funding for small class education into the future.

Q 17. Can WY implement teachers enhancement programmes without going DSS?

Yes, we can.  In fact many teacher enhancement programmes are organized or supported by Government Funds. Besides, the WYOFF is to sponsor meaningful educational programmes proposed by our teachers for the students, and also for our teachers’ professional development.

Q 18. What is the vision of Jesuit education in HK?

The Jesuit Education Board in Hong Kong is the guiding organization for the College, other than the statutory Management Committee.  Its vision statement is

We offer a holistic, liberating and transforming Catholic education within a learning   community for students and staff to become progressively competent, committed, compassionate, spiritual, and ethically discerning persons with a universal heart contributing to the welfare and happiness of all, in particular the poor and the neglected.”
