Mr Laurence C S Tam (Form-master of Form IC 1957/58) has recently been invited to be the honorary consultant of Hong Kong Education Bureau to help them organize the "International Students' Visual Arts Contest and Exhibition (2010)".  This is the first international project of its kind ever been organized by the Hong Kong Government as a means to promote cultural exchange between Hong Kong and the rest of the world. Please see WYKAAO website http://www.wykontario.org.   (Harmony between nations and races is, of course, an ideal, but difficult to achieve.  Hopefully, through our enduring efforts in cultural exchange work that harmony may one day come along and our world may become a better place for us to live in.)  Since inducing overseas educational institutions interested in the above-mentioned Contest is not easy and in order to  facilitate more overseas participants to submit their entries, the deadline, as well as procedures for submission of entries, has been duly revised. In the last two weeks Mr Tam have been busy sending emails to his overseas relatives and friends to encourage them to submit entries directly to Hong Kong by themselves, since overseas entrants do not need to send their entries through schools.  In fact, this can be applied to many of our WYK62 classmates who are residing overseas with grandchildren.  Therefore, Mr Tam had asked that perhaps we can pass this message out to our WYK62'ers, relatives and friends as a 最後衝刺?  This is the website that provides the most up-to-date information of the Contest: http://www.hkisac.org.   as  Mr Tam would like to see the scions of our Wahyanites among the Grand Prize Winners of the Contest.

Recently, some of us in Hong Kong attended a banquet hosted by our classmate Michael 梁啟雄 for his grandson Aaron's Double Full Moon Celebration during which we were very happy to be able to sit on the same table with Mr & Mrs Laurence C S Tam who was my Form IC form-master with 6 others who were in the same class during 1957/58 in WYK. Indeed, it was quite a joyous occassion and Mr Tam even said that it was like a mini-reunion. (see photo above). 

Afterwards, I received an email from Mr Tam and an excerpt of which appeared below : 

 

Dear Alex,
 
Thank you for giving me the class photos and the  WYK62 website which  contents brought back wonderful memories of my happy days at Wah Yan. 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your classmates in inviting me and my wife to attend the joyful Windows Cafe lunch gatherings of the WYK62 group in the past months. 

Indeed, if the photo taken of those who were at the same table had included Michael Leung, Lau Kin Sang and Tong Yau Kan at other tables, then there would have been a total of 8 former Form 1C classmates there, almost like a small reunion of Form IC (1957-58).  Isn't it an occasion to be remembered!  

  
In the past few years, I have been involved in the Wah Yan Kowloon Chinese art promotion exhibition: "The Cradle of New Chinese Ink Painting Movement
新水墨畫運動的搖籃". (Believe you have already got a copy of my book on the exhibition. Its second and revised edition in English was published in 2009.)  It has aroused local and overseas interest in the educational value of Chines
e painting, which had been ignored by modern educators for a long time.  It is a sad thing to say that few art teachers in Hong Kong today are able to teach Chinese art in schools.  In the last few months, I happened to come across some leading education adminstrators who share my view that with HK being part of China, there is an obvious need to! bring Chinese art education into HK school curiculum, and our Wah Yan "Cradle" project can be taken as a lead to revive the significance of Chinese art education as a key subject in holistic education 全人教育 in schools in Hong Kong.  They had made me stay in Hong Kong all this while so that I was able to work with them closely together.  Hopefully, something meaningful and exciting on the Wah Yan "Cradle" project will engender in the near future.

Laurence Tam.
