  • Yeng Ng

    Ms. Yeng Ng

    Preparation for Primary Co-ordinator

    Qualifications: BSc Social Sciences and Post Graduate Certificate in Education

    Nationality/years in Hong Kong and/or Asia: British, 9 years in Hong Kong

    What do you love about your job?
    I love witnessing children’s development throughout the year and that ‘eureka’ moment, when they found a task difficult, and then they just ‘get it’!

    What do you enjoy most about working at Woodland?
    The children are great to teach and very funny. The staff were very supportive and helpful when I first joined the team. It can be tough being the new girl, but everyone at Harbourside and the rest of the Woodland team made my transition much easier for me!

    What’s your favourite memory of teaching at Woodland?
    I was on lunch duty and a group of boys were being quite noisy and not really eating their lunch. I was about to tell them to calm down and to continue eating, when a little girl said to me, “Miss Yeng, why are boys so noisy and annoying?!”
    My reply was, “They don’t grow out of it!”

    What do you like to do when you are not teaching?
    I like seeing my friends in my spare time, hiking, sleeping, eating and going to the beach, when the weather is good. My favourite hike is the Dragons Back, as you end up in Shek O with the beach and good food. The toughest hike I’ve done is Lantau Peak. Wasn’t a good idea to hike it in the summer either! I used to play hockey and I am thinking about picking up my hockey stick again.
