Ying Wa Heritage
Ying Wa Heritage
Every one of us is an integral part of Ying Wa. Given the school’s history of more than a century, there is a treasury of personal experiences and recollections of the school among generations of us. With the passing of time, some of these valuable memories are irrevocably lost. Some, however, are still vivid in our minds and are ready to be tapped. It is important that they be preserved as an affirmation of our heritage.
The school has initiated a new video project which aims to capture the growth of the current S1 students as they move from the current school building, through the temporary building until they move back, in their final year at school, to the new building. The video recordings will be edited into a documentary to celebrate the opening of the new school building and to commemorate this very unique period of our school history.
This 6-year tracking project is being supported by YWGSAA and is underway. The first filming was conducted on 21st December 2011. 2015 marked the 4th year of the filming of the video documentary titled “Transformation”. Filming of ten S.5 students is in progress as scheduled.
