Recruitment for 2012 Wah Yan Marathon Team



Dear Runners, Wahyanites and Friends of Wah Yan,

 Time flies and we are about to set out to take part in the 2012 Standard Chartered Marathon! This is the 5th year we are running, so please Gimus Five!     

Our sports teams had a very fruitful 2011 in which many of you helped form a 288-runner Marathon Team, the biggest ever in the history of Wah Yan, and raised $1 million. 4 young members were among the top 10 runners in the 10Km Run 3, out of 6,000 people. The ritual of sportsmanship has indeed driven the whole Wah Yan Community to new heights.

 The New Senior Secondary curriculum (NSS) has been launched this September. Our teachers and young Wahyanites are facing new public examination syllabuses, school-based assessments and other new challenges in their teaching and studies. Thus peer support and encouragement, an adequate amount of extra-curriculum and sports activities and team spirit are key to help our teachers and young Wahyanites overcome the hurdles this year.

 We are therefore calling upon you to take part in the next Marathon, which will be held on Sunday, 5th February 2012. Let’s gather 250 runners to join as a Supportive Group and raise $1 million to sustain the provision of sports training and our spiritual support for our teachers and young Wahyanites.
