      Online Ceremony


      Due to the epidemic, the ceremony was held online. The two teachers most familiar to the students - Mr Samuel Man, A Level Co Ordinator and Ms Jennifer Liu, Career and University Guidance Office teacher, hosted the memorable ceremony.


      The ceremony began with a video message from Dr Betty Chan Po-king, CEO & School Supervisor of Yew Chung Yew Wah Education Network, congratulating each student on their successful completion of secondary life.


      Then, Mr Jeroen Gakes, Western Co-Principal cum Education Director and Ms Linda Li, Chinese Co-Principal, extended their best wishes and expectations to the students.


      In the parents' speech, Vicky Lin's mother, Ms Wang Jie expressed her gratitude and thanks to the school and teachers on behalf of all the parents.


      In the students' speeches, Isabella Gong and Kris Pan spoke about their growth and development over the years, thanking their teachers, classmates and families for their support and assistance.


      At the end of the ceremony, Ms Maggie Zhou, Chinese Vice Principal, and Mr Malcolm Harrison, Western Vice Principal also sent warm messages to the students, encouraging them to become better selves.


      At the ceremony, two talented students, Emma Huang, president of the Student Union, and Louis Liu, the winner of the Musician of the Year, also gave us wonderful musical performances:



      Experience Sharing


      As we will bid farewell soon, the students also left behind those unforgettable and affectionate moments for their alma mater with their words.

      I spent 7 years here in Yew Wah. Here, I joined a lot of interesting and challenging activities. The activities gave me abundant learning opportunities and an improvement in confidence. Yew Wah also enhanced my leadership. From house leader to school team leader, I learned about how to lead a team and solve problems from the inside. I also gained precious friendship here. I studied and lived here with my friends. This made my life colourful.



      Jane LU
      University of Toronto, Canada
      BBA Studies in Management


      During five years of Yew Wah, I have gained a lot in these years. For example, I have learned different knowledge in class every day and this knowledge can be used in my daily life, like Economy and Psychology. During the five years in the dormitory, I became more independent and prepared for living abroad alone in the future. And each activity, I play so happily.


      After five years, I became more independent and had my own ideas. When I left Yew Wah, the most difficult thing to forget was the relationship between me and my teachers and friends. There are so many memories, such as their picture of helping me; the moment that my friends comforted me and the time we laughed together.

      In the 5 years of studying at Yew Wah, my biggest gain is independence, in comparison with the learning atmosphere and learning environment in the local school, Yew Wah pays more attention to students’ independence. Here, I began to learn to arrange the study time responsibly, instead of only playing, at the same time. I also clarified my future learning direction through continuous learning and trial. Even though I am about to leave here, I will still remember every stage of my upbringing here.



      Emily YU
      University College London, UK
      BA Geography


      During my seven years of study in Yew Wah, the school witnessed my change from an immature child to a confident and optimistic student. A wide range of school activities provides us with many opportunities to challenge ourselves. An excellent teaching environment encourages me to understand and find the course I am interested in.


      With my perseverance and the support from Yew Wah, I not only got the interview from the University of Cambridge, but also successfully got the offer from my dream school!


      When I was about to enter a new phase of my life, I will never forget the time in Yew Wah. I hope we have a bright future! Happy graduation!

      I spent almost four years at Yew Wah. Studying in high school is very hard, and you will encounter many unexpected difficulties and challenges. But I was so lucky to meet many excellent teachers and like-minded friends who have helped me immensely and brought much joy to my high school life. I am very fortunate that I came to Yew Wah and met them.

      “Gratitude”. It is the most valuable thing I learned in YWIES.


      First of all, I am thankful for my family, who has always been the most supportive and my most reassuring presence.


      I am also lucky to have met a group of my lovely friends here. They would wait for me to eat before getting up every lunchtime, comfort me with candies after failing an exam, “ji yi ji” together and have fun in the park, or occasionally be childish and “tussle” with primary school kids.


      I also met teachers (shout out to Mr. Colley!!) who taught us life lessons from the bottom of their hearts. And all the valuable opportunities and experiences that I have had in YWIES.



      Congratulations to the Class of 2022


      The admission season may not be
      The most splendid chapter of our youth
      But it must be the most unforgettable journey
      A short ceremony
      It is impossible to tell
      All the laughter and joy of the past few years
      Dear class of 2022
      Your YWIES journey is coming to an end
      Congratulations to all of you
