[2002/01/09] Email from: Mr. Peter Choy, on Christmas Ball Vancouver
Two and a half weeks ago we celebrated our Christmas Ball at the Richmond Delta Pacific Resort Hotel
Preparing a function of this magnitude certainly was an easy task but our Ball Committee led by Mr. Adrian Fung (1985) performed a superb job. A big thank you to our Ball Chairman Mr. Adrian Fung (1985) and his committee for a job well done!

[2001/11/25] Bro. Thomas, the Principal, greeted the old boys who came to support the School Football Teams' last Interschool A grade and B grade league games against fellow Lasallian School: St. Joseph's.
Mr. Paul Ng (1970), on the right, visitor from Vancouver Chapter, took time off to cheer the teams on a beautiful Sunday morning in Happy Valley. Paul also informed us that they will have their Annual Ball on 22nd December 2001.
On the left, we have Peter Yeung (1978) and children. Peter was a member of the School Football team during his schoolboy years. Guess who was the Interschool B grade manager at that time. The answer is right in front of you.
