Fusion and growth (1993-2001)
In the mid-1990s, the new towns in Hong Kong were developing rapidly. There was a growing demand for secondary school places in North District. After moving from an urban area to Fanling, St Francis of Assisi’s College began serving the district.
In September 1993, led by Principal Chu Fu Yau, classes in the new campus officially started. There were nine F.1 and six F.4 classes – fifteen classes in total. Vice-Principal Yung Ho Do stayed in Shek Kip Mei and became the Principal during the transition period. F.1 admission was then suspended and the number of classes in Shek Kip Mei decreased year by year. In 1997, the last batch of F.5 students graduated and this chapter finally came to an end.
The new school campus was built according to the latest models at that time, with excellent facilities. There were 26 classrooms, 15 special room, an assembly hall separated from the main building, a standard basketball court and a covered playground. Combining the finest traditions, the newest facilities and the variety of the school curriculum, our students are equipped with holistic education.
