The provision of education in Hong Kong during the pre-war period was a concerted effort of the colonial government, missionary bodies and Chinese charitable organisations. Schools varied in size, vision, religious belief, curriculum, medium of instruction and student background. Orphanages, refuge homes and free schools for the disadvantaged children; boarding schools attended by children of different nationalities including local students and those from Mainland China and Southeast Asia; and day schools in tenement houses on busy streets in town or European-style mansions at the tranquil Mid-levels, all formed part of the Hong Kong education system catered for people of different cultures during the colonial period. This talk will introduce the unique schooling experience of young people in pre-war Hong Kong.
