Special Announcement for Anniversary Musical Performance

Dear alumnae and friends of Ying Wa,

In the midst of the novel coronavirus outbreak, I hope you are safe and sound, and find strength, faith and comfort in our Heavenly Father.  Let's pray that the epidemic will be brought under control and those infected will recover soon.

To safeguard the health of all participants and reduce the risk of the spread of the coronavirus in the community, the school's 120th Anniversary Fund-raising Musical Performance 'A Stargazer's Fantasy' originally scheduled on 4 & 5 July at the Lyric Theatre will be shelved.  

The decision was made with a heavy heart as we hold everyone's health and safety as our utmost concern.  It is understandable to be disappointed with this decision as we share the same feelings.  We particularly appreciate our teachers, actresses, orchestra members, choir members, dancers and backstage crew who have dedicated so much time and effort in the audition and rehearsals and have been looking forward to the performance in July.  Their passion and commitment to this endeavor has been evident and we are so proud of them!

Thank you for your unwavering support and understanding especially during the hard and uncertain times. Let's keep praying for Hong Kong and the world, and putting our trust in God, as "the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore." (Psalm 121:8)
