From the Ho Family - Thank You

My family and I would like to express our heartfelt thank you to the Wah Yan Alumni family for the overwhelming tributes that were shared in WYKAAO, Jerrett book of memories, and with my family.

Over 300 family and friends attended my father’s funeral services to pay respect to a remarkable man.   My father has had the opportunity and honour to serve and positively impact many lives. He was very fortunate to have had a blessed life with lifelong love and respect of friends. In addition to the great teacher and talented person many saw in Chun Yuen Anthony Ho; above all, my family was fundamentally the core in my father’s life. He has been our protector, our rock and centre of our family and we will miss him dearly. We hope we were able to share this other side of my father with you in our eulogies and at the services.

張正剛(‘00) 眼中的何鎮源老師

Teddy Cheung with Mr. Anthony Ho《悼良師 — 何鎮源先生》

曾在加拿大生活過的朋友都知道,加國的生活在很多方面停留在八九十年代,從酒家的那對大龍鳳、在領展出現前的那種辦館式商場、仍在賣衞斯理亦舒及忍字竹簡的書局,到要求「細蚊仔」正襟危坐的中文夜校,彷彿是穿越了時空回到了童年一樣。

其中最震撼的,仍是見到的人。在二十多年前中一的時候開始,總會斷續從當時的老師、師兄口中或校刊校報文字抓著母校的歷史和故事,以及當中的一些傳奇人物。

在去年(2017年)第一次參加多倫多校友會的聚會,就忽然間發現,同枱坐著的就是那些口述中的人物。其中一個就是在1977年離港的「咖哩何」何鎮源副校。

《Stroke amongst Chinese Canadians with Diabetes》 __ Joseph Chu (71)

Here is a recently published article in the Canadian Journal of Diabetes by my student and me on the subject:
 
Although it is a peer-reviewed scientific article, I trust the conclusions and recommendations are easy for non-medical people to understand.
 
It looks like that Chinese with stroke have a higher frequency of Diabetes and their prognosis fair worst even if their blood pressure severity is not as bad.

The Tsui-Lim Partnership of Wah Yans

WYK at Nelson Street

In 1922, with the rapid success of WYHK, now using Diocesan premises, and made a Grant-in-Aid School, Peter Tsui was able to recover some of his early investment. He wanted to develop what he regarded as a branch school in Kowloon (WYK) which subsequently opened in 1924. He was wrong of course because as a Grant School, WYHK could not technically have a Branch, WYK was a separate private school from WYHK which was a Grant School by then. But nobody, not even the Education Dept, challenged him in his subjective mindset regarding the two schools.

While basting in early success of WYHK, Peter Tsui surmised - could schools be viable and sustainable as a business when teachers' salaries had to be increased every year, but school fees could not be raised every year to catch up? His own answer was negative. He concluded that he must develop side-businesses that could subsidise his educational enterprises.

Pope Francis __ Vincent Lee (65)

 Pope Francis(Vincent P. Lee, '65)

I am, and I believe many are, deeply touched and moved by the Pope's actions as illustrated in these photos/stories. To the public, I called it the teachings or "effects" of "Jesuit education". To us, you know and I know, we call it the "Wah Yan Spirit" - simply taking it after our beloved mentors.
