    The Yew Chung and Yew Wah Education Network (YCYW) marked its 90th anniversary celebration in South Korea, solidifying bonds within its dynamic community. A highlight of the celebration was the establishment of the South Korea Alumni Chapter, symbolising the network's dedication to broadening its global reach. With over 70 distinguished attendees spanning multiple generations, including alumni, parents, and business partners, the occasion served as a tribute to the rich legacy of YCYW schools while also setting sights on future achievements.


    The establishment of the new alumni chapter marks a milestone in the YCYW history, signifying a commitment to fostering community ties and supporting ongoing collaboration among its members. The atmosphere was infused with a genuine joy of renewed connections and friendships over conversations among the attendees.


    Throughout the evening, stories of good old school days were shared, allowing alumni to reconnect with their past and forge new relationships that will enrich their personal and professional lives. This gathering not only celebrated the enduring legacy of Yew Chung and Yew Wah schools but also illuminated aspirations for the future within an expansive global alumni network.


    "We are thrilled to see such enthusiasm and turnout here in Seoul," expressed by one of the founding members of the chapter. "Their eyes are radiating with joy. This is more than a chapter launch; it's a homecoming."


    The event was honoured by the presence of over ten VIP guests from esteemed business partners, including Hyundai Mobis, LG Innotek, POSCO-CYPC, Cottonit, the Korean Association of Beauty and Plastic Surgery Industry, the Star, and AJU Media, all expressing admiration for the 90-year legacy upheld by Yew Chung Yew Wah and their pride as YCYW's business partners.


    As the evening drew to a close, a sense of accomplishment enveloped the event, accentuated by a mutual recognition that the South Korea alumni chapter stands as a commitment to ongoing collaboration, support, and growth for the Yew Chung and Yew Wah family.


    A heartfelt appreciation goes out to our alumni, parents, and business partners whose presence enriched the event. Your spirit, stories, and support have made this occasion truly special. Although this chapter is only just starting out, it already feels like a family reunion. Here's to the countless reunions yet to come and the unwavering spirit of our global alumni network. Welcome to the South Korea chapter, where our shared legacy continues to thrive!


    We are also profoundly grateful to our business partners for their invaluable contributions and we look forward to fostering these relationships as we collectively nurture the development of this burgeoning chapter. Together, we aim for a future filled with achievement and camaraderie. Thank you once again for being an integral part of this momentous occasion.
