Global Exposure Committee
The Global Exposure Committee was set up in 2013 to broaden students’ horizons to a much bigger world by encouraging various kinds of cultural exchange activities. Together with the unfailing support of the Li Ka Shing Foundation, the Mrs Li Chong Yuet Ming Student Development Fund (LCYMSDF) deploys resources for local and overseas programmes. Some programmes include interactive workshops, sharing and visits organised by CEDAR Fund, Intercultural Education (ICE) and Beauville Arts Hong Kong. Many of these activities were held with the coordination of the Liberal Studies Department.
Global Week has been one of the key events held by the Global Exposure Committee and ICE. Speakers of different nationalities from ICE attended all junior classes, sharing topics such as Stereotypes and Common Misunderstandings, Modern Rites of Passage and Rituals and Social Etiquette. Global Village was held as a lunch activity in the open areas in which guests from Australia, Germany, Ghana, Sweden, the USA, Vietnam and Zimbabwe chatted with students from all forms about their cultures, played simple games and shared local snacks with them. What’s more, during the OLE time slot, all S3 students were invited to join one workshop of their choice to further explore a different culture. The workshops included Vietnamese Language and Coffee Tasting, Spanish Language and Food Tasting, African Demystified, Brazilian Martial Art Maculele and African Drumming. Overall, students enjoyed the Global Week a lot as it was fun to learn in an interactive way.
The Li Ka Shing Foundation ("LKSF") announced a donation of HKD 10 million on 28 November 2012 to establish the Mrs Li Chong Yuet Ming Student Development Fund (LCYMSDF) at Ying Wa Girls' School. The endowment fund provides opportunities for Ying Wa students to become global citizens through international exchanges and to strengthen their commitment to the local community through involvement in social services, which is in line with the school spirit, "To serve and not to be served".View More
