My father flew out to HK in January 1952 to teach at King's College.  He spent his entire working life in education in HK at different schools.  After King’s College, he was Geography master at Queen’s college,  then an Education Department Geography Inspector and then back at King’ College as Acting Principal.  He was also Acting Head of KGV, also Jockey Club Technical School and then Principal of Shau Ki Wan Government Technical School.  For his last ten years in HK, he was Principal of Kowloon Technical School.

I was a student of the Shaukeiwan Technical School.  I was in Form 2 or 3 when Mr. Peter Halliwell came to be the school Principal in 1966 (and so you can guess my age).  I left in 1969 after completing Form 5.  The school was opened in 1963 and so there was still no upper form classes before your father left in 1970.  

Your father had done a lot to the school which all the students appreciated with great thanks. I still keep an e-photo of your father,  but I think it may not be suitable to put in here without permission.  I have more to say on private email if you have time and interest, but will it be disallowed ?

I do not know how this site operates. I cannot find my last night's email but apparently you can see it. Is there a way to treat my email private (for you only) or public (openly posted on the site and visible to everyone)? 

Sorry i am new to this site and still do not know how it operates. 

Hello Greenwich, and welcome to the site.

I moved your original comment from the 'Flying from London ..." page to this page for Mr Halliwell, you can see it further up the page.

Anything you post to the site is public. If you'd like me to forward your email address to Clare just let me know.

Regards, David



Please note that my father's name is Halliwell and not Halliday.  It must have transcribed it incorrectly when I originally posted is flight blog from the UK to Hong Kong.
