Started in 2015 by a group of 1971 WYHK past graduates, the Tin Shui Wai English Tutorial Program has served over 2,500 under-privileged Form 2 to Form 5 secondary school students from 20 schools in Tin Shui Wai and Kwai Chung (after subsequent expansion) since its inception.
One of the key initiatives of the Program comprises weekly pro bono on-site English tutorials given by past WYHK and WYK graduates and their immediate family members to help needy students enhance their interest, confidence and competence in English. Over the years, some 70 volunteer tutors have taken part in this program, giving tutorials on weekdays after school or Saturday mornings.
Although the on-site tutorial program suffered a hiatus during COVID 19, we are now ready and keen to resume normal operation — we are currently serving 4 schools in Tin Shui Wai and 3 schools in Kwai Chung. To this end, we appeal to the Wah Yan past students community to consider volunteering as tutors so that we can offer our service to more schools and benefit more students, in keeping with the spirit of “Men for and with others”.
If you are interested in taking part or would like to find out more, please contact Herbert Chan (WYHK’79) or Stephen Lam (WYHK’75) by email in the first instance:
We look forward to hearing from you. In hoc signo vinces!
