STUDENT BODIES

Learning through Leading

STUDENT ASSOCIATION

Our Student Association (SA) has been serving as a bridge between the College and our students since 1966. Our SA is responsible for communicating between the administration and the student body, organising student activities and promoting student welfare. Each year, the cabinet of our SA is selected by a schoolwide election, for which our students campaign passionately. We believe that it is through experience that students learn to be compassionate leaders, and the experience is the seed of genuine reflection that leads to growth.

Leaders For and With Others

PREFECTS’ BOARD

Our Prefects take pride in their roles in providing a harmonious learning environment, but our Prefects’ Board is much more than just a disciplinary body. On top of maintaining discipline, our Prefects are expected to act as role models and lead by example. A true Ignatian leader is a companion who does not fear standing up for the greater good. The Head Prefectship has always been held in the highest esteem at Wah Yan since the appointment of our first School Captain in 1950.

The Board operates independently under the delegation of the Principal and the Discipline Committee.

Building Lifelong Brotherhood

HOUSE

Established in 1933, our House System is an essential part of the Wah Yan experience, creating brotherhood and fostering a strong sense of belonging that surely is the envy of many. Our House System encompasses all aspects of school life, epitomizing our emphasis on whole-person development. Throughout the year, students earn points for their Houses through participating in sports, music, service and other activities, through which we celebrate the achievements of all. Our House Captains are often some of the most committed leaders at Wah Yan.

All Houses are named after prominent saints of the Society of Jesus (Loyola, Kostka, Xavier and Berchmans) and a colour represents each. Upon entering Wah Yan, all Form 1 gentlemen are sorted into a House according to his allotted class. Allegiance to a house remains unchanged throughout his tenure at the College, for affinity is nothing without loyalty.

The House System is coordinated by the Other Learning Experience Committee, and each House is supervised by a House Master / Mistress.

The Star, our annual, has recorded our joy, toil and glory since 1933. Generations of student editors have been devoting themselves to build upon this tangible legacy of ours, recording school life, collecting fine pieces and celebrating our achievements. It is a precious testimony of our lives at Wah Yan. While reading the Star, Wahyanites relive our triumphant moments, as well as our heartbreaking defeats. On the pages of every copy, there is undoubtedly a joyful tear shed somewhere.

First published in 1964, the Starlet is our school magazine, consisting of articles, news reports and interviews written by our students. The Starlet mainly communicates campus news and matters concerning the College to students. Competent writers at Wah Yan are encouraged to contribute to both English and Chinese sections of the Starlet. The Starlet Editorial Board usually publishes two issues each year – one in each term.

Learning Through Experiencing

SCHOOL ORGANIZATIONS, CLUBS AND SOCIETIES

We believe that learning happens outside classrooms as well as inside. In line with Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm (IPP), we emphasise experiential learning. Most student activities at Wah Yan are planned and run by students themselves, while teacher advisors guide students towards the Planning, Implementing, Evaluating (PIE). We believe that the skills to make things happen can only be acquired through getting one’s hands dirty. As a result, we have more than 30 School Organisations, Clubs and Societies, all operated by Wahyanites. School Organisations report to different functional groups while Clubs and Societies are affiliated to the Student Association.
