Francis Ng and His Wife Like Singapore’s Education Systemjessie tan
Francis Ng (吳鎮宇) and Fiona Wong‘s (王麗萍) son Feynman Ng was thrown into the spotlight after appearing in season two of Where Are We Going, Dad? <爸爸去哪兒> in 2014. Now, at the age of 11, he is all grown up and graduating from primary school.
On June 24, Feynman posted a short video online to announce that he has finally graduated. In the short film, he shared photos of Francis and Fiona beaming at his elementary school graduation, which Francis’ good friend, Cheung Tat Ming (張達明), also attended. Feynman also showed photos of the school environment, his first late slip from the sixth grade, a souvenir from his school trip to Taiwan, and essays. He happily said, “Look at my primary school life!”
In a few months, Feynman will create new memories as he continues his education at the Singapore International School (SIS) in Hong Kong – a school that his parents chose for him due to Fiona’s Singaporean roots. Eventually, Francis and Fiona hope to send Feynman to study abroad in Singapore or overseas.
SIS (Hong Kong) is a Favorite Among Celebrities
Aside from Feynman, a lot of other celebrities’ kids also attend or attended the SIS in Hong Kong. Zhao Wei‘s (趙薇) daughter, Eileen Yeow‘s (姚瑩瑩) son, Moses Chan (陳豪) and Aimee Chan‘s (陳茵媺) eldest son, Richie Jen‘s (任賢齊) son and daughter, Simon Yam (任達華) and Qi Qi‘s (琦琦) daughter, Benz Hui‘s (許紹雄) daughter, and Bonnie Lai‘s (黎淑賢) son are all current or former students of the institution.
Celebrity parents who plan on sending their children overseas for school prefer the lax environment of the SIS (Hong Kong), established in 1991. Compared to local schools, SIS has an easier curriculum and less workload for students. The school, which has an average tuition roughly ranging from $120,000 Hong Kong dollars to HK$180,000, offers an International Baccalaureate program from kindergarten to secondary school.
