Learning Is to Discover the Undiscovered – Haruka Ostley

Haruka is a multidisciplinary artist (painter/ muralist/ performer) who hails from Japan. Growing up and living across four different continents allows her to easily work with people from different backgrounds, and has given her art work a bigger variety and style! Both Haruka and her husband Gabe Ostley used to work as Artists-In-Residence in YCIS Hong Kong and eventually worked in different campuses across China. Although Haruka left Yew Chung in 2014, her story with us doesn’t just end there!

Staff Donor’s Sharing - Joyce Chen, The first donor of YCCECE

I have joined this Foundation for more than 6 years now, and feel a strong sense of belonging and shared identity, because I know how difficult it is to find an organization that is so well aligned with my own values. I readily witness how Dr Betty Chan, who is of similar age tomy mother, and Professor Paul Yip, fully devoting their lives to education, which is deeply touching. So naturally, I wondered how I could contribute too?

My YCIS Story - Aaron Shea

I studied at YCIS-HK for 13years, enrolling at age two-and-a-half in Kindergarten and stayed until Form 5 (IGCSE completion), which was our highest grade level back then. Yew Chung, as my dear alma mater, will forever be a part of me, evoking deep emotions. My two sons are now also enrolled at YCIS-HK, in the Early Childhood section, so we are truly a Yew Chung Family.

Voice From Our Students - Kaur Jaswinder Pal, Class of 2020 YCCECE awarded scholarship

I want to express my sincere gratitude to the Drs. Richard Charles and Esther Yewpick Lee Charitable Foundation for providing me with scholarship, which has gone a long way to relieve the financial stress on my family and I, especially my mother. It has not been easy for my mother to support two children on her own. This scholarship has allowed me to concentrate on my studies and be more actively involved in College life without a heavy burden hanging over me.
