SPCAA Newsletter - August 2019

Dear Alumni,

We would like to bring you the following news and annoucements:

1. Message from the Chairman of the Fundraising Committee for the School Enhancement Project of St. Paul’s College (5 August)

Dear SPC Alumni,

Our first effort in the School Enhancement Project is to increase the floor area of the classrooms. For the Form 1-5 classrooms in the North Wing/Academic Building, the walls are pushed out to include the existing corridor. New corridors are then erected. The Form-6 classrooms are reorganized, with two classrooms on each of the 6th, 7th, and 8th floor of the Stewart Building.

Classrooms will also be equipped with new teaching facilities. The added space will allow flexible seating arrangements to promote better interaction among students, as well as between students and teachers.

The work in the classrooms is in progress. The target date of completion is September 2019, to be ready for the start of the school year 2019-2020.

Our Fundraising Committee has prepared a short video ( to show you the difference between the new classroom and the old one as well as the new facilities. If you or your class would consider supporting the classrooms project, the school will honour you or your class with the naming of a classroom for a donation of over $1 Million dollars. You may choose to honour your favourite teacher with the naming as well.

We have also developed our new Facebook page for the School Enhancement Project to update our progress from time to time. Please “like” and share with your peers.

We look forward to your support for St. Paul’s College and please let us know if you have any suggestions or comments. For more details, please contact us by phone at 852-25462248 or email to
