This building was originally a school - the old name is still visible on the side of the building, so if you're passing by please could you let us know what it was? [Update: It was the "Chung Sing Benevolent Society School", see Tony's comment below.]

Today it houses the Bayanihan Kennedy Town Centre, a charitable organisation providing services to domestic helpers from overseas who are working in Hong Kong.

Whitfield junior school, Kowloon [????-????]

I've created this Place based on recent photos added by the Webb family.

It was a junior school for children whose parents were in Hong Kong with the British armed forces. From its name I assume it was in Whitfield Barracks, but if you can tell us more about its location and when it was in operation, please let us know in the comments below.


Yu To Sang Memorial Secondary School / Central and Western District St Anthony's School [????- ]

A 1990 map book shows the Yu To Sang Memorial Secondary School on this site.


Abandoned school in Wo Tin, Lantau [1962- ]

Date Place completed: 
c.1962-07-01 (Month, Day are approximate)


A friend of mine who lives in Mui Wo recently toured me in the surrounding villages. We walked through an old abandoned school in Wo Tin, very close to the silvermine waterfall (I wonder how I never noticed it before). There is nothing left  in the three classroom building but one sign on the wall marked 1962, portraying the original management team.

I couldn't find anything online about the school, does anyone know about it?



Tsung Tsin Primary School & Kindergarten [????- ]

58, Tai Po Road

It's the building next to the roundabout in this photo:


Sai Ying Poon Government Vernacular School [1891-????]
