4. A Message from the Foundation Secretary, Josephine Ho

Dear SPC Alumni,

I would like to make another appeal for your support to the Campus Enhancement Project so as to take advantage of the matching fund. The deadline of the matching fund payment is the end of April 2019. I would also like to take this opportunity to answer a few frequently asked questions.

Firstly, I would like to invite our alumni to contribute to the Donor’s Wall, which is located along the corridor outside the School Hall. You can have your name and graduation year engraved on the plaques. We selected the beehive structure because it stands for the nurturing and strong bonding which best represents student days in SPC. Please note the difference in sizes of the hexagons, for which the minimum donation is HKD10,000. Photos of the design and a donation form are attached for your reference.

For the first time in St. Paul’s College history, we will honour our major donors with the naming of a classroom, the first group of rooms to be renovated. Please reserve your naming right early, because there is only one of each. This perhaps is the best way to remember the good old days as a class, as an ongoing memento of your class’s time at the College.

If you have further questions, do not hesitate to email me at or click onto our website at

Once again, let me thank all the alumni who have already supported this project, an important milestone in the College’s development.
