Menu Items Re-arranged

Top MenuYou may notice there are some minor changes of menu items on this website. A new tab 'More' was created on the top (horizontal) menu that consists of sub-menu items of 'Forum', 'Reconnect with Classmates' and 'Academic Counselling'. Forum is previously on its own at the top menu and the other two items were under 'Main Menu'. The blog also has its dedicated tab on the top menu. Hopefully this re-arrangement will streamline the navigation and makes the website less cluttered. Please click here if you have any comments about the website.

Website Access Statistics

Distribution of Web Page AccessThe number of pages viewed on our websites has exceeded 110,000 per month. In fact, the number has surpassed 130,000 in October and November 2010. Thank all readers for your continuing support of our websites. Our Picture site remains the most popular choice, followed by our Blog. If you have any suggestions or comments, please drop us a line here. Together we will keep making our sites better and provide a quality service to our alumni and community.

Facebook Privacy

Recent policy changes in privacy of Facebook caused quite a stir among social networking communities around the world. Facebook since then simplified (and improved) the privacy settings for users; yet there are some important points to keep in mind (click here) when signing up or browsing through Facebook friends/communities including our very own WYKAAO Facebook.

Donate to WYK in Canada

Donate to WYK in CanadaA number of alumni asked about ways to make donations to our mother school Wah Yan College Kowloon in Canada. The two Wah Yan Colleges have entered an agency agreement with the Canadian Jesuits International (CJI) for donors in Canada to make donation to the either of the two colleges through CJI with tax deduction applicable to Canada. We are grateful for the Jesuits in Canada, i.e., Fr. Robert Wong, S.J., to make this possible.
