Inter-school Volleyball Champion
Many of our school teams have been busy with tournaments this term and two sets of outstanding results came in recently. In early December our Volleyball Team entered the Inter-school Volleyball Competition (Division 1, Grade A) and emerged as the new Champion. We are also very proud of our Basketball Team who emerged as the First Runner-up in the Inter-school Basketball Competition (Division 1, Grade A) in late November. Their rigorous training and skillful play have paid off.
EIE Robotic Challenge Junior 2017: Robot Hunter
Four S4 students participated in a robotics competition which was held by the Department of Electronics & Information Engineering Department (EIE), The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Our team won the First-Class Prize, showing that girls can excel at robotics. The EIE provided workshops for participating students to develop their robots. Students learnt about the electronic circuitry inside a robot, including the skills related to designing, 3D-printing and programming. This activity helped develop students’ creativity, enhanced their problem solving skills and stimulated their interest in electronic engineering.
Science Tour to Singapore
To promote STEM education and broaden the students’ horizons in science and technology, the Aerial Photography and Technology Team organized a study tour to Singapore, from 23 to 27 July. 20 S2 and S3 students joined the tour and participated in different science activities organised by "Science Festival@Singapore Science Centre". Students visited “Makerfaire”, which was an exhibition of booths displaying products which were invented by local secondary students and technology companies overseas. They also attended a 2-day workshop to assemble a robotic arm using programming language. Students were equipped with electronics and programming skills which allowed them to further explore robotic applications in solving daily life problems.
Okinawa Tour with 20 Awarded Tickets
The Civic Education Committee and the Global Exposure Committee joined hands to plan an itinerary in Japan, in a competition organized by Hong Kong Airlines. Ying Wa was among the 150 shortlisted schools / NGOs, and won 20 return tickets to Okinawa, Japan. An exchange tour was held from 16 to 20 July with the themes of nature and foreign influences and the impact of WWII on Okinawa. A visit to a local secondary school was arranged to deepen students’ understanding of the Okinawa culture.
A New Campus Will Arise
Ying Wa is aiming to move back to Robinson Road using a new campus in September 2018. The new campus, based on the solid foundation of the past and designed to the latest 21st century specifications, will give the girls of tomorrow an even more ideal, fulfilling, loving, Christian education. The new facilities will enable Ying Wa to keep to her traditions and yet be equipped to look forward, modernise, transform and reach new heights.
