Principal Dr Chan started the session by her sharing on creativity in teaching, which involved five "E"s: "energy", exposure", "enjoyment", "enhancement", and importantly, "ethic". Participants were so inspired by Dr Chan's words.
Afterwards, I did my sharing with them on how my department and I have been putting effort into exercising creativity over the years. One of the highlights of my talk was certainly the very interesting clips we produced. The guests were deeply impressed by our "Ying Wa 204" videos as well as our "To Be Continued..." clip.
The school tour followed the presentations and Miss Kei Yip along with three Student Ambassadors (5A Aldon So, 5C Lincoln Powell and 6B Shaun Ng) led the tour, interacting with the participants in different languages.
It was a fantasy exchange opportunity between the visitors and us, and I too learnt a great deal from the interactions. Thanks to Dr Yuen for visiting us! ^o^

"Sincere gratitude to Kei for the detailed school tour. The tour was well-organized and everything was introduced in great detail. The students were also smart and helpful, answering all our questions and actively guiding us to understand the culture of YWPS boys. Additionally, Dr. Lee's speech was inspiring, showcasing real-life examples of creativity. The A-list system introduced is a brilliant idea and I truly appreciate the effort put in by the teachers. It is clear that it involves a huge extra workload, yet it is a valuable contribution to the education of the students. It was a wonderful experience!"
