Award of Phase 2 contract

We are so pleased that finally, subsequent to a well deliberated and due diligent process, we have reached another milestone in July 2015 – the award of the Phase 2 contract for a self-funded portion of the redevelopment project. [eBulletin No.10, December 2014]

The major add-on facilities in Phase 2 located in the extended campus on Breezy Path (the former Nethersole Hospital site) comprises an auditorium with a seating capacity of 200+, prayer-cum-reading rooms, music practice rooms and a campus TV studio.

The construction of Phase 2 will go concurrently with Phase 1 (main campus and government provisions in the extended campus), anticipated to be completed by about mid-2018.

Site progress

In the past months, the site formation work has not been progressing as smoothly as expected largely due to unforeseen geological challenges. With most of the problems surfaced so far having been resolved, the Contractor is now catching up with the delay as piling work is well on the way.

Innovative Spring Bazaar to generate more donations …

For the first time, Ying Wa will be organizing a bazaar in campus. This will be our major fundraising initiative in the year for the redevelopment project. Spring Bazaar 2016 will now be held as a one-day event on 19 March 2016 (Saturday), and we hope to raise HK$1 million from the sale of goods and sponsorships.

Enthusiastic alumnae have been helping to solicit quality goods for sale in the Bazaar such as apparels, handbags and lifestyle household goods. Designed to be a fun fair styled occasion for both homecoming and community outreach, interesting activities to be featured will also include games and food stalls, lucky draw and live performance by students.

As a promotion kick-off, a pre-sale was held on 10 October 2015 where over 120 alumnae, teachers and parents gathered at the school hall in the decanting campus to preview some of the goods to be sold. The trial run sale was an impressive success. Not only has it earned us a pleasing sum of funds, but most importantly, gained us valuable experience in perfecting the actual event next March. To have a taste of the day, you may like to browse through the photos at:

Due to the warm reception of the pre-sale in October, another pre-sale of ladies handbags and figurines was organized on 10-12 December in the office of a key member of the Bazaar Organizing Committee. Over $60,000 was generated from the 3-day pre-sale.

The Nightingale

The 115th Anniversary musical The Nightingale staged at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts on 30 and 31 July 2015 was an astounding success, winning applauses from the audience and raising more than $2 million towards the School Redevelopment Fund. It will certainly go down Ying Wa’s history as one of the best remembered anniversary celebrations. Visit the school website to view the collection of photos capturing the highlights of the evenings.

Donation update

As at the end of November 2015, the total donation received approximated $93 million.

The next Open Prayer Meeting for the redevelopment project will be held on 23 April 2016 (Saturday) at the school hall in the decanting campus. Before then, please keep our needs in your daily prayers. You may find out from time to time the latest prayer items from :
