School Redevelopment Fund for the Future Ying Wa
Donation Target HK$200 million

One hundred and ten years ago Miss Helen Davies, our founder, saw her dream of building a girls’ school on a hill come true. Today, we have yet another dream – to re-design and re-build en bloc and in situ the entire campus of Ying Wa with an extended site to meet the educational needs and challenges of the 21st century.

The scale of the redevelopment is unprecedented, especially with the addition of a part of the ex-Nethersole site, and so are the opportunities. While the price tag is staggering, our eyes are set on the future – the coming generations of Ying Wa students in the next 50 years. Many of us know very well how the 1967 wing and the associated blocks, with their above–standard provisions, have remarkably benefited and enriched the school life of recent generations of students.  That is why we are convinced that on top of government provisions, we shall endeavour to provide the school with extra and advanced facilities, and to create more teaching and learning space to enable Ying Wa to keep her Christian education traditions, and yet be equipped to facilitate students to look forward, to transform and to reach new heights. 

With your generous support, we will be able to set up a School Redevelopment Fund to meet our financial needs for the following provisions:

Campus Facilities
1. a full-school seating assembly hall
2. a modernised well-equipped multi-purpose gymnasium
3. a performing arts theatre / auditorium (seating capacity: 200 - 300)

- an indoor swimming pool (swimming has been part of the school’s regular curriculum since the    1980s)
- a school archive and exhibition gallery
- a campus TV studio
- additional rooms for prayer and other purposes
- music practice rooms
- canteen
- upgraded IT facilities
- outdoor PE and sports facilities (e.g. abseiling or rock climbing facilities)
- increased recreational and social spaces for outdoor performances and activities, landscaped and    rooftop gardens, greenery spots and quiet corners
- green features

Project Management and Construction
- hiring a Project Manager to assist the school to drive through the redevelopment project
- sharing the site formation and construction costs incurred for the portion above standard   provisions

Future Maintenance
- any surplus will be kept prudently in a sinking fund for future maintenance and student   development
