The memorial service of our beloved former Headmistress, Miss Evelyn Griffin Jenkins, was held in the School Hall on October 17, 2021.  Miss Jenkins was a missionary from the London Missionary Society and upon the completion of her study at the University of Oxford, she received a message from God to go to the Far East and she started her education career in Ying Wa.  During her 16 years of service in Ying Wa, she served as a teacher, vice-principal and finally the principal from 1967. 

During the Memorial Service, Alumni shared their moments of encounter with Miss Jenkins.  The School Choir and the Alumnae Choir dedicated songs to pay tribute to our beloved Headmistress.  Miss Jenkins will forever be fondly remembered by all at Ying Wa.  May she now rest in eternal peace in God's loving arms.
