PRINCIPAL’S WELCOME

Founded in 1919 by Mr. Tsui Yan Sau, Peter, Wah Yan College has always been a humane community full of care, brotherhood, and support. Based on the educational values of our sponsoring body, Society of Jesus, we place a strong emphasis on cura personalis (care for the entire person), nurture and support and believe that this enables us to be effective in preparing and supporting our young gentlemen to be ready for the world beyond school.

We are fortunate to have an attractive and spacious campus on the top of the beautiful Mount Parish to complement our dedicated faculty in supporting the growth and development of our young gentlemen. Our school motto,“In hoc Signo Vinces”, means “In this Sign, you shall conquer” in Latin. It reflects strongly in our school life. We believe that ‘for a man to conquer himself is the first and best of all victories.’ We are grateful to see our students truly live out our school motto and consistently demonstrate their commitments in their learning, as well as in a great variety of activities – sports, music, visual arts, services, to name but a few, at the same time.

It is my pleasure to welcome you to our website and see how Wah Yan supports our young gentlemen in becoming individuals with the “4Cs”: Competence, Conscience, Compassion, and Commitment. It is our mission to help our students in realising their full potential, making positive contributions to society, and becoming Men For And With Others.

Our Companions

STAFF

At Wah Yan, we emphasise on our being a learning community, from teachers to students and parents. We believe that personal growth is best achieved when all members of a community are committed to learning. Therefore, we deem essential that our teachers are not only passionate about what they teach, but also uphold a growth mindset. We are lucky to have more than 70 very dedicated members of staff who share our beliefs and passion for learning.

We care about the whole-person development of our members of staff in the same way we do our students. All new members of staff are required to complete our programme for new companions, in which they learn to appreciate the Jesuit way of education and reflect upon our mission. It is through experience that our staff learn to practise our way of education – cura personalis (care for the entire person).

What makes a Wahyanite?

WE DON’T HAVE A MOLD.

We have a method — a method that enables each to flourish in his unique way gifted by God. We treasure each young man’s special talents. We care for the whole person and provide life-transforming education. Every Wahyanite is a unique story, and Wah Yan celebrates all.
