POSTSCRIPT

I would like to express the pleasure I get in working on this project, the admiration I have for Mr Anthony Ho and the past and present officers of WYKAAO, and the satisfaction of learning so much more about Wah Yan. I would urge all Wahyanites to make use of this website as one way of staying connected with the alma mater, the classmates and alumni at large.

Specifically, I would like to acknowledge the help of the following:
Mr Ho for first conceiving the idea, entrusting me with the job, providing me with his encyclopedic knowledge of things WYK, painstakingly creating all the online links, and helping with editorial and proofreading work;
Dr Joseph Wong, past president of WYKAAO, for his support, proofreading, and supplying some graduation years;
Mr Jeff Mah, the present president of WYKAAO, for all IT matters;
Wong Hin-shing, for proofreading and advice;
Amy Leung for answering my questions.

For those interested, other than the two Latin mottos of the Society of Jesus and the school, the sources of the other quotes are:

Epigraph – 余晃英 (61): 對照:61屆同學新舊照片有感

1- Ad maiorem Dei gloriam –For the greater glory of God
2 - The name of Mr Tsui Yan-Sau’s original school, adopted as the name of the new school
3 - In Hoc Signo Vince- By this sign we shall conquer
4 -William Blake, “Jerusalem”
5 - “Before Sleeping”
6 - Oliver Goldsmith, “The Village Schoolmaster”

8 - William Wordsworth, “Lines Composed a Few Mils above Tintern Abbey”
9 - Gerard Manley Hopkins, “God’s Grandeur”
10 - Rupert Brooke, “The Great Lover”
11 - Lord Tennyson, “Ulysses”

These are found in “The Overseas Poetry Book,” Book 2, and “A Pageant of English Verse,”
both textbooks used in WYK in the 50s and 60s.

End – 陸慶奇 (64): 憶海外同學》中引張九齡〈望月懷遠〉句 

Finally, on this milestone anniversary of Wah Yan College 90/95, if I may be allowed to repeat the fervent wishes I made some time ago:

祝母校長青, 師健學弟勤, 煌煌教育業, 薪火代代傳 (金禧重遊華仁歌 

May the alma mater be evergreen,
The teachers in good health and the students diligent in spirit.
Glorious is the educational enterprise.
May the torch be passed on from generation to generation.
