Mr. Lee Kwok
Pui, retired Wah Yan teacher (affectionately known as 'Atomic Dust' by
most), was invited by Council Chairman Peter Tam to speak in the last Council
Meeting of the 2001-02 term last night.
In a sincere
and motivating speech, Mr. Lee reminisced on the good old days when Wah
Yan had over twenty five priests at one time. He then went on to commend
on the strong ties and affections to-day's old boys had for their mother
school. However, he suggested that other than monetary support, old boys
could help the school even further by becoming mentors and role models
who were willing to share their knowledge, experience and general outlook
on life with the studying students. He said that such a move would help
to ease the gradual down-grading of standards in moral education caused
by the continuous diminishing number of priests. 'The knowledge and experience
of old boys are the greatest assets of Wah Yan....use them!' he said.
Mr. Lee taught
in WYHK from 1960 to 1991 when he emmigrated to Australia where he continued
to teach for ten years until his recent retirement. He is now back in Hong
Kong and is helping the school out by teaching part time there. Mr. Lee
is highly appreciated for his devotion to the school and for his enthusiasm
in taking part in PSA activities, including the upcoming International
Conference to be held in Toronto at the end of June.
