The Jockey Club’s “Project Silver” – Intergenerational Arts Exhibition
Ten S4 art students participated in the Artist-in-residence Project led by Ms Marka Mak from September to November 2020. Under the Jockey Club’s Project Silver – Intergenerational Arts Project (Portrait Painting Workshop for the Respectable Senior), the project aims at promoting age inclusivity and creative aging through art. Students got to express their care and love for their grandparents and respectable seniors through portrait paintings. Not only did students interview their senior partners to gather more information for the paintings, but they also guided senior participants to paint. All portraits were on display from November 21 to 30, 2020 at Cityplaza.
Art-in-library Project (Phases I to III)
Our girls and staff members took part in a school library decoration activity called the “Art-in-library Project” in which they inscribed their favourite book titles or quotations on bamboo bricks.
With the assistance of visual art teachers and the guidance of two renowned local sculptors, Ms Man Fung Yi (an alumna) and Mr Mok Yat San, this project underwent three phases starting from May 2019 and was finally completed in August 2020. Not only did students pick up skills in bamboo design and grinding, but they also had the chance to share their love of reading.
Release of Album Entitled “Space for Transformation – The Redevelopment Years”
Dear alumnae and friends of Ying Wa,
The school redevelopment has travelled a decade-long journey, full of twists and turns, ups and downs. But all the challenges were worth it. The magnitude of the project was unprecedented, so were the infinite opportunities and hopes brought to us. In them, I see God’s blessings. Miracles seemed to always appear at the right time when we needed them most.
2nd Runner-up - Code2App Challenge 2020
Three S2 students formed a team to participate in a programming competition called Code2App Challenge 2020, which was co-organized by the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and the Hong Kong Education City. The competition aimed at raising one’s awareness of the importance of healthy living both physically and mentally. Our team created an app, WE fit, to save records and video clips of one’s physical exercise for personal tracking and evaluation. The records can also be shared among family members and friends, encouraging one another to do more exercise. The girls’ hard work paid off by winning the second runner-up and the Family Inclusive Award.
