YEW CHUNG SPOTLIGHTS

We strive to strengthen the bond of our network of schools by highlighting the Yew Chung spirit and serving the wider community.

Why Connecting Alumni Globally Is Like Looking for Lost Sheep, and Just as Rewarding

Mr Wayne Tai, YCIS Hong Kong Class of 2003, spent his entire childhood with us for over 15 years and that bond still continues. Apart from being a Yew Chung alumnus, the APAC regional Ecommerce & Digital Manager of Naos also volunteers as the president of the YCYW alumni advisory board, bringing his driving passion to expand and build a more meaningful alumni community for all of us.

Former Students Share Real Life Stories for Teacher Insights

To highlight and promote good practices in teaching, Yew Chung and Yew Wah held an "E-Learning Professional Development Days" event on November 27-28, 2020. Apart from the university professors and education experts who spoke during the event, we also invited four alumni to share their views – Ms Kwan Ki Sze, YCIS Hong Kong Class of 2008, Mr Able Chang, YCIS Shanghai Puxi Class of 2009, Mr Liping Lin, YCIS Shanghai Pudong Class of 2012, and Ms Bethany Ru, YCIS Shanghai Puxi Class of 2018. Our alumni brought valuable former-student perceptions to help our educators better understand the core needs of a Yew Chung or Yew Wah student.

How HK Alumni Enjoy the Virtually Intoxicating Joy of a Grape Education

And now, with the bubbles still fresh in our mouths and a hint of wind in the hair, a quick look back at our first alumni wine tasting event. Special thanks to our wonderful host, Aaron Chung – YCIS Hong Kong Class of 2008 and the director of One Cellar Hong Kong – who dug up a choice selection of reds from regions as diverse as France, Argentina, USA and New Zealand. After all, it is the soil and climate that make the grape.
