A mini 61 group get together in Toronto celebrating Christmas.  We all wish you and your family a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 

Letter from Fr. Mallin.  If you spot any mistakes in the transcript, please let us know.

Why retire at all? A tutoring job is not that onerous an undertaking after a while. A number of reasons led to my decision to stop in 2013, 18 years after immigration. First is that the sources of good eager students were drying up. Taiwan and Hong Kong ceased to become major sources of immigrants. Second, I no longer wanted to be tied down for nine months a year; but language arts, more than other subjects, requires sustained attention, on the part of the student and the tutor. Third, from the day I took up tutoring and teaching evening classes in the first year of university, I had clocked up about 50 years of English Language Teaching. I can address my career, with sincerity and thankfulness: “To ELT, with Love”.  To aspiring teachers and tutors, I say, “Welcome and good luck! It is more than a job. It’s a job worth doing well.”

To ELT, with Love

趙起蛟贈 余晃英藏  【書寫年月不詳】

最後三首分別是  蘇軾 定風波/ 辛棄疾 青玉案/ 蘇軾 念奴嬌 (赤壁懷古) 
 
 

 
With deep sorrow Martina asked me to let you know that Dr Augustine Lam passed away on June 27.
 
While holidaying in Hawaii with family in January he fell sick, returned home and was admitted to Hospital.
 
Augustine, Beloved Husband to Martina and Great Father to 2 daughters, was cheerful, gentle, caring to all relatives, friends and patients.
 
He was my good close friend since P6 1955; also our family Doctor since we moved to Vancouver. 
 
There was family only funeral services. In Memory of Dr. Augustine S.K. Lam, donation/s can be made to Richmond General Hospital Foundations, Richmond BC.
 
With Heavy Heart,
 
Gilbert
