Overseas Alumnae Newsletter (12th Issue)
In this issue, we are blessed to have quite a number of contributors, ranging from the “big sisters” graduated in 1960 to recent graduates of the 2010s, and a former English teacher who left Ying Wa half a century ago too! Some of them share their real-life experiences living in overseas countries, from initial hiccups to fruitful personal growth. Enjoy, and hope you would get some inspiration from their sharing!
120th Anniversary of Ying Wa Girls' School
In the run-up to our 120th anniversary (2020), Ying Wa is buzzing with excitement not only because we have returned to our Robinson Road campus, but also because we are ready to kick off a series of celebratory activities unparalleled in our history.
Share the joy with us by taking part in a wide range of carefully-curated events, including the 120th Anniversary Thanksgiving Service, the 120th Anniversary Open Days on 28 and 29 March 2020, and a musical performance, A Stargazer's Fantasy, on 4 and 5 July 2020 at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. With our fun-filled programme of events, we hope to present to you a new horizon of Ying Wa, and affirm our devotion to girls' education in the 21st century.
Also keep an eye out for our publications and souvenir sale in the coming year. An album dedicated to the redevelopment project and an anniversary school magazine are scheduled for March and November, 2020 respectively. As for those who would like something more to mark this special occasion, look no further than the collectibles available at our souvenir sale. Don't miss out on the chance to recapture the cherished moments of our 120-year-long journey.

Founder’s Day Service & Dinner 2019
On 29 March 2019, more than 250 alumnae, teachers and guests attended the annual event at Cuisine Royale (薈軒), Wan Chai. We praised and gave thanks to the Lord during the Founder's Day Service. The AA AGM was held smoothly and the special resolution to amend the Articles of Association of the YWGSAA Limited was adopted with consent. Election of the 2019-2021 term of AA Council members was carried out by voting. Mrs Ruth Lee, the Returning Officer, supervised the process and announced the result during the dinner. Participants were also apprised of the updates on the BIG MOVE and our NEW CAMPUS, which made the climax of the night!
