The dinner with Mr Lo Wing Sun was very successful. We had two full tables with a large number of younger Wahyanites coming to WYPSA activities for the first time. Mr Lo met up with many of his students from the 80′s, 90′s and 00′s. He also had a great re-union with two of his own classmates from 1977 class who are living in Sydney: William Wong and Cyril Yau. (Cyril also acted as our photographer for the night with his professional gears, thanks!
Earlier this month, we learnt from Mr Mathew Chan that his step-father, Mr Robert Chung, the founder of WYPSA (Australia) Inc., passed away in June 2008, six months after his wife, Diana died. Both of them passed away peacefully in sleep.
Mathew’s family held a very warm ceremony for Chung Sir at the Chapel of Macquarie Park Cemetery. The Celebrant was Fr. Edward Dooley, a Jesuit Priest in North Sydney. Fr Dooley’s homily was very touching followed by the reflections on the life of Robert by Matthew’s son, Adam. The ceremony was attended by all family members and close friends. Chung Sir and Diana were buried in the Macquarie Park Cemetery, grave 63 and 64 – 023, Section – Traditional.
