Christmas Service and Variety Show 2018
The speaker at our Christmas Service was our beloved former Principal, Mrs. Ruth Lee. She shared with us different signs in the Bible and in our daily lives which often convey a variety of meanings. Despite being born in humble conditions in Bethlehem, Jesus Christ has always been revered for his love and willingness to serve. We must treasure His love and uphold His spirits.
In her speech, Mrs. Lee talked about the history of Ying Wa, from our humble beginnings and the unpredictable perils of the Japanese Occupation to our most recent development. Our forefounders’ modest and positive attitudes helped them brave challenges during the journey to developing girls’ education.
Christmas Greetings from the Principal (2018)
Dear parents, alumnae and friends of Ying Wa,
Rejoice! Rejoice! Christmas is a time to love; it is a time to celebrate the good news of the birth of Jesus, who was God in flesh, coming to forgive our sins and give us eternal life. We hope our annual Christmas letter finds you well and we have some good news about our School Redevelopment Project to share with you. (Read more)
