About WYIR

Wah Yan International Reunion (“WYIR” and formerly known as IC or Wah Yan International Conference) is one of the important events for Wah Yan alumni across the globe to meet together. The first Wah Yan International Conference ran in 1988 with the theme, Wah Yan Family Around the World. After that, WYIR holds every two years and has the following four key objectives:

  1. To provide fellowship opportunities between local and overseas Wahyanites
  2. To keep alumni informed about both Wah Yan Colleges in Hong Kong and Kowloon
  3. To allow Wah Yan alumni all over the World to better understand the wellbeing of each other
  4. To explore possible improvements on our Global Link networking

The 17th WYIR will be held 10 – 11 December 2022 (Hong Kong Time) and co-organised by the past student associations of both Wah Yan Hong Kong and Wah Yan Kowloon.
