Fund-raising Concert 2017 - 780K Raised
With the massive support of a 500-strong audience, the first ever fundraising concert of Ying Wa Girls' School was held successfully on 22nd April. Around 150 students and 80 alumnae performed a repertoire of over 20 works of varied genres and in different languages.
Initiated by our Music panel chairperson, the concert assembled Ying Wa musical talents of all ages to contribute to a new Robinson Road campus. It garnered overwhelming support from students, alumnae, parents, teachers and philanthropists, and added HK$780,000 to the Redevelopment Fund.
The whole school was moved by the passion and grateful for the magnanimity on display that evening. Nothing touches the soul better than the beauty of the arts, and it was fitting that we had a communion with God through music in the China Congregational Church of HKCCCC.
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.

Global Awareness Week 2017
Since the establishment of the Global Exposure Committee in 2013, it has been developing strategies and deploying resources for organizing local and overseas programmes for students to gain exposure and develop a sense of global citizenship.

During this week, two activities, namely the "Global Picnic" and the "Global Village" were held to provide an opportunity for students of all forms to play games, sample different cuisines and interact with the foreigners.
Talk on Treasuring Life
Thanks to the ECO Foundation (環保慈善基金) and Guidance Committee, the OLE event on 18 November 2016 inspired students to cherish life and taught them how to face adversity with tenacity.
