Wah Yan Day 7Jan01

Hundreds of families turned up throughout the day. The Wah Yan Spirit was truly felt by participants of all ages... from babies (possibily future Wahyanites) to senior members in their 70's. It was particularly good to see so many old boys from overseas and 'new faces' of those who usually not very active at PSA functions to turn up. The advertisements we placed in Ming Pao apparently worked fine.

The Wah Yan Spirit was definitely everywhere. Informative exhibition panels were telling visitors all about the past, present and future of Wah Yan, the PSA and the PTA. The 15th Scout Troop performed the flag raising ceremony to launch the day's tightly packed programme of activities. The Red Cross's march was nothing less than impressive.

Fr. Coghlan chose to celebrate the Obituary Mass for Past Fathers and Teachers in red habits as a symbol of the all the goodness and hope they brought to Wah Yan.

The school's orchestra and choir performed the national anthem for the first time in Wah Yan. The Chinese Orchestra put on an impressive performance. Others who performed on the stage specially setup in the playground included interschool verse speaking winners and talent time winners.

Innovative ideas and operational capabilities were evident at the games stalls set up and run by the students themselves. Students clubs and special interest groups displayed their highly diversified interests, knowledge and skills in the exhibition displays they set up in separate classrooms.

Souvenirs, PSA ties, VCDs and other commemorative items were selling well in the music room.

A professionally run multi-media interactive seminar was conducted in the school hall by PSA members to explore the essence of the Wah Yan Spirit.

The caterers were busy all day preparing food and drinks for their over excited, and ever so hungry, customers. And, thank God, the weather was sunny and fine... everything turned out just perfect.

Emotion ran high as we sang the Auld Lang Syne against the backdrop of the setting sun. We all went home with the Wah Yan Spirit revitalized!
