School History

School History 

1931

Being a faithful believer of Buddhism, Lady Clara Cheng Lin Kok was committed to promote the belief of Dharma and help the humankind. Recognized that women at that period generally lacked access to education, Lady Clara Ho-Tung, as a Buddhist laywoman, invited Venerable Master Aiting (靄亭法師) to help in the establishment of Po Kok Free School in Percival Street in 1931, providing free education for the underprivileged girls. Besides, Po Kok No.2 School and Po Kok Buddhist Academy were set up in Rua Central, Macau and Hoi Wan Lan Yeuk, Castle Peak respectively. In addition, under the auspices of Mr. Tam Woon Tong and financial assistance from Sir Robert Ho-Tung, the current address of Tung Lin Kok Yuen was established, serving as a majestic monastery. Laywoman Lin Kok and Venerable Master Aiting (靄亭法師) monitored and supervised everything, from the overall design to the internal furnishings.

 

1935

Po Kok Free School and Po Kok Buddhist Academy, formerly located in Percival Street and Castle Peak respectively, moved into Ting Lin Kok Yuen one after another upon its completion. Laywoman Lin Kok had a vision in the long run and made a will which entrusted Layman Wong Hok Yan, Layman Chan Ching To and Laywoman Lam Lim Chun with forming a board and selected Laywoman Lam Lim Chun as the successor to the head of Tung Lin Kok Yuen and school principal.

 

1937

During the Second-Sino Japanese War, laywoman Lin Kok had a patriotic pride and instructed the students in the school to sew military uniforms and transported them to the frontline.

 

1938

The founder Laywoman Lin Kok passed away. Laywoman Lam Lim Chun succeeded as the head of Tung Lin Kok Yuen and school principal.

 

1941

Due to the fall of Hong Kong, all activities of Tung Lin Kok Yuen and the school were shut. Also, Po Kok Second Free School in Macau was forced to close. It was a hard time for everyone in Tung Lin Kok Yuen. Fortunately, Laywoman Lam Lim Chun and the members of the board worked hard, and everyone could survive the difficult times.

 

1949

Though the school received subsidies from the government, the board still raised funds to balance the expenditure to relieve the schoolchildren’s burden, which fulfilled the school mission. The board was registered as the legal foundation in accordance with government regulations, and the former board members were re-appointed as the permanent directors.

 

The government intended to take back the land in front of Tung Lin Kok Yuen and listed it as land for sale. With the hard work of Sir Man Kam Lo and his wife, the government allocated the land to Tung Lin Kok Yuen for the permanent use of schooling. Sir Robert Ho-Tung then generously donated HKD$50,000 to transform the area into a school playground.

 

1950

Tung Lin Kok Yuen held a fair to raise funds for building a school building next to the school playground. In the meantime, Sir Man Kam Lo’s wife asked around for donations, and all sectors of the society responded enthusiastically.

The new school building was completed, and Madam Grantham presided over the opening ceremony. Students who previously attended classes at Tung Lin Kok Yuen moved into the new school building.

 

Due to the rapid economic development in Hong Kong, Po Kok School that only provided primary courses had difficulty meeting the social needs. The board then decided to expand the school into ‘Po Kok Girls Junior Vocational Secondary School’, with a particular focus on Home Economics and Business Study, which made it easier for the graduates to make a living in society.

 

1954

Ever since the school developed into a vocational secondary school, its academic achievement was excellent, and the numbers of students increased.
