Articles and News of Class 1973
In effect, this is everything I did in the 40+ years since I left WYK in 1973. Thanks to all the WYK teachers for prepping me to embark on this journey, THANK YOU!

Dear Lai Sir,
"Wah Yan International Reunion is in San Francisco this year. Lai Sir and his wife Amy are here for the event. They came to visit me at my house today with Louis Lao Veng Pui (82). Attached are some pics taken."__ Lau Kam Yin (73) writes on July 10.
While in high school, my passion was actually not in science or academic subjects, instead, I was deep into painting and art, specifically modern Chinese ink painting under the tutelage of my high school art teacher Lawrence Tam, a beloved teacher whom we all affectionately called “Tam-Sir”. I did well enough in that pursuit for one of my paintings to be selected to participate in the 1972 Contemporary Hong Kong Art Exhibition, an open event intended for professional artists. Immediately after the exhibition, the painting was acquired by the Hong Kong Museum of Art. I was just 16 years old then. The painting on the right is currently in the permanent collection of the museum.
