Ming Ying was a private school. It appears in Wah Kiu Yat Po's (華僑日報) Hong Kong Year Book (香港年鑑) in 1964.

Ming Ying School was a Chinese primary school located at Third St. in the Sai Ying Poon district. I attended the school from P1 to P6 and graduated in the early sixties. Mrs. Seto was the principal there. I would like to give my sincere thanks to my English teacher, Mr. Pang, for giving me a solid foundation on the subject. I was assigned through the Secondary School Entrance Examination to St. Paul’s College up the street. Ming Ying School ceased to exist in the mid-sixties. Since the two schools were in the vicinity of each other, I  witnessed the demolition of the building where I spent my early childhood. The last time I saw Mr. Pang occurred when we went out for lunch in the Central District. During my Form One year, I met Miss Liu, my puppy love from Ming Ying School, near her new school, St Paul’s Convent Scool. She grew up to be a girl at least five inches taller than I. We would still talk with each other over the phone for extended periods of time. In our Form 3 year, due to some bad arrangement on my part, she got mad at me and we have lost contact with each other ever since. I wonder if I would ever get to see my old classmates from Ming Ying School again.
