Hi Simen

What a surprise to find this today! Hope you remember four of us sitting together in the class, me and Gigi and you and Peter from Uganda.  If you remember, respond to this message and we can continue. Thanks.

Hi All.

Its been a while. This is the first time I have come cross Royden House and I do remember the good times. I remember Shlomit and Sunita very well. Infact Sunita- you may still have a photo of mine that someone took in the boys toilet. These are amazing memories. I look forward to hearing from the students at Royden House ( 1982-1985).

Hi Jason,

If you are the same ason- we went for fencing classes in 1983-84.



Wow, this is so unreal!  I googled "Mrs. Vaughan from Ireland who used to teach at Royden House School in HK", and I ran into this site, found your message about Ameeta Aswani, Lisa and Rosa!  I've been trying to look for Ameeta, I used to call myself Lisa in those years and hung out with Rosa a lot!  I went to RHS in 1977-1980, I started in Form 5 (i think).  I'd love to get in touch with Ameeta, or Rosa - I also remember Giselle, and have a picture of us in white and red checkered uniform!  Was there a Simon in our class?  I vaguely remember him with glasses..

Hey Lisa - I remember you!!  I have a lot of random memories of RH and one of them is that your brother put chewing-gum in your hair so that it had to get cut short.   And yes, there was a Simon with glasses in our class.

THat is so random!  I remember that I had a very short haircut which I was upset about, but I didn't have any memory why I had such a short haircut.  Now it's all coming back to me!!!  And it's really funny!  Who are you, btw?  Please write back.

Lisa, it's Giselle. I'm the one who posted about the gum in your hair incident. You can email me at


Ms. Strange was an awesome teacher at the Caine Road Royden House during the 90s.

I think she was the only one that stayed back when Royden House tranistioned into Sear Rogers.

I know you, Yellow Magic Orchestra, Kraftwerk, red shirt black tie.

I remember Yabo but don't know about her, those white boys treated her real bad!

Could that be Sookyung lee and Mikyung lee, maybe?

Any information about Albert and Bernard Ling back in 1985?

wow I was just put onto this blog and reading through some of the post and came across this. How are ou Ian, I remember you well, and I also remember the hockey final against KGV in which we won!

Do anyone knows Miwa Toku? (1987 to 1992)

Hi. Does anyone remember me? I was there from 79~81. Then, I changed school and moved to the USA, studying mostly in Portland and Los Angeles. It was my first English school experience that I can't never forget. My favorite teachers were Mrs. Supermania, Mrs Bonn and Mr. Lam who used to call me "KingKong Bea".(LOL) I remember JaJa and Narueta?(his cute sister) and Vichaphan and a couple of hard working students from the Philippines. Now, I am so sure they are all married with children :)(but not me LOL). I have worked and lived in Europe until very recently and am kinda retiring in Seoul, Korea after so many years of adventures in life. If anyone wants to share memories, please connect to

I attended Royden House from 1961 to 1963.  As I remember it, it was situated on MacDonnell Road, just across the street from the Botanical garden.  If you made it as far (back then) as "Transition" (name of a grade), you could cross the street at recess time and go to their much larger playground.  I remember fondly Mrs. Rudge, as well as Mrs Chung (who drove a Jaguar as I remember it and lived on the Peak).  Looking for Jodi Manseta if anyone remembers her.  My email address is  I now live just outside Washington D.C.  Left Royden House in 1963 when we left Hong Kong and returned in 1965 when I attended KG5 in Kowloon.

hi everyone, i studied in 1984-1985-1986. does anyone remember the year book royden school had? the first two year books were yellow..beige cover while the one in standard 6 had black cover with golden letters in chinese.if any one can scan these yearbooks and put the pics on this forum it would be a great help. i lost mine so therefore i am asking a favour.i was with rahul pradhan, ravi kripalani, kishan (the fat sindhi kid) , tracy weerasinha was always with me in the school van and also in class.and yes you guessed,he always topped his class.not to mention jay tawidjaja,yau wai chun. jay you used to be good at drawing robots,yes???. also phillip ting, ____ ishi ayako the japanese girl??.
