End-of-Year Mass of Thanksgiving

Although the pandemic has shaken up our usual ways of living and learning for almost three years, there are certain things that we should be grateful for because the pandemic keeps putting us to the test of what we can do. On reflection, we are glad about how we have improved in handling stress and distress, managing crises, and turning inward in search of inner peace. These are all essential life skills that one must learn – best at a young age because life is never easy – God makes it bumpy as he wants us to learn better and grow stronger. Most importantly, the lingering pandemic has taught us a good lesson on not to take things for granted, for example, a vacation in the summer.

As we wrapped up another extraordinary year at the Mass of Thanksgiving on 24 June, we were also bidding our dear Principal adieu. To capture something as evanescent as a parting moment is not easy; yet, in commemoration of the great devotion and dedication, the unconditional love and care of our “strict father” for nine years, Wahyanites shall strive to be Men of Human Excellence and Men for and with Others in the spirit of MAGIS – and it would be the best gift for Principal CHUNG in honour of his retirement. We wish him every happiness, freedom and excitement as he embarks on a new phase of his life!
