1932-1970 The First Yew Chung School

Madam Tsang Chor-hang founded the first Yew Chung school in Hong Kong in 1932. Inspired by a commitment to contribute to the revitalisation of China and a mission to spread Christ's teachings, she named her school "Yew Chung" -- meaning "to glorify China".

During the turbulent times of the 1930s before the outbreak of World War II, the road to education was full of obstacles. Madam Tsang persevered in her efforts to maintain the school. "Diligence, thrift, modesty and honesty" became the school's motto with an aim to educate students to develop good character and sound knowledge, the two pillars of society. Madam Tsang led Yew Chung to survive the tumultuous years of World War II and the uncertainties of the post-War era.
