Welcome to WYKAAO
“I was in UK for a wedding and made a stop in Dublin to pay respect to my beloved Fr Mallin’s father Michael Mallin. For those of you who are not aware, Michael Mallin was an IRA leader in the unsuccessful 1916 Rising. He was executed by the Brits. But the Rising drastically changed public opinion and led to the Irish independence in 1920. I thought they honoured him by naming a train station after him. Little did I know he was a big hero in Dublin and I saw his name and plagues everywhere. Including a hero’s resting place in one the most famous cemeteries in Dublin. I am so glad we made this trip. I can cross this off my bucket list now. See more pictures here.”
Joint-School community, including Wilson So and Jeff Mah from WYKAAO, attended La Salle College Old Boys' Spring Dinner on March 12.

The Organizing Committee of Joint-School Alumni Association got together for a dinner on March 2, 2023 discussing the possibility of resuming group activities in the near future.
A networking lunch was held on Sunday February 19 to meet and greet alumni who are new or returning to Canada after a long absence. As the restrictions caused by the pandemics are subsiding, more in-person gatherings will be arranged to promote connections and friendship among Wahyanites in Ontario.
Other than Ho Sir (Group Scout Master) who gave me the nod in Form-1 for joining the scouts, Andrew So (So-Har) was my very first contact in WYK scouting. He left (graduated from) WYK as I was entering P-6 in 1959; a "green broom" (SM) on his scout beret at the time.
I was a member of probably 10 or 12 new tenderfoot recruits who got sworn in by him in Junior B*: A few I can remember: FB, Goo-Wark, Ah Chai, Thomas Li, Koo Wai-Ying.... (BB went into Junior A). Tsung Kwong-Hung ("貓仔") was my first PL, John Fung Hong-Tai was my PS, in Antelope Patrol, before Henry Lam the "Iron Cow" took over after Tsung left.
Following an informal dim-sum lunch last September, WYKAAO is holding a networking event welcoming alumni who are new to Ontario, or those returning to Canada after a long period of absence. We will offer assistance or information from navigating your daily lives, furthering your academic studies, to establishing your career in a country which you may not be that familiar with.
