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?
