Distinguished guests including representatives from the Education Bureau, School Council, School Redevelopment Committee, parents and alumnae joined principals, teachers and students to witness a milestone in the history of Ying Wa Girls' School, the Topping-out Ceremony at its Robinson Road campus on 24th March 2018.
Professor Chiu Lai-har Rebecca, Chairlady of the School Redevelopment Steering Committee, spoke about the grace of God steering them through many an unforeseen challenge during the four stages of their mission, from envisioning a new school on its historic grounds to securing authorization from various governmental bodies, and from construction to funding matters.
Sharing the joy on the project's completion was Principal, Mr. Kwan Hon-cheung Francis, who thanked everyone who has been supporting the project, and reaffirmed his school's commitment to following in the footsteps of Christ, 'To serve, but not to be served'.
The completion of the final roof at this site marked the end of a decade-long dream to transform the colonial school into a school of the future. On the grounds of its state-of-the-art campus is a small hexagonal cottage which housed the first kindergarten in Hong Kong back in 1926. The decision to preserve this structure embodies the school's policy of 'Revisiting its past; connecting to the future'.

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.
A New Campus Will Arise

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.

Latest Building Progress
While the School has been working very hard over the past years towards returning to our home site by the target date, the difficult conditions on the building site have posed immense challenges to our construction team. Nonetheless, we have tried our best efforts to ensure that each problem was solved with the best contemplated solution.
At the moment, the good news is that all piling works, one of our last hurdles, have been completed, and the superstructure works in the main campus (Robinson Road) are in full swing while that of the extended campus on Breezy Path is already done.
The School expects to start operating in the new campus right after the Christmas break in 2018.View Details
