School History

"Meanwhile these three remain: faith, hope and love;
and the greatest of these is love"
(1 Cor 13:13)


Tak Oi Secondary School was founded in 1970 in response to the needs of the Hong Kong society and the request of the Catholic Bishop Lawrence Bianchi. At that time, the Government was developing the area of Tsz Wan Shan, a district near Wong Tai Sin in East Kowloon.


The official opening of the school and unveiling of the plaque was officiated by Mr. J. Canning, Director of Education in 1971.


Tak Oi Secondary School is an EMI subsidized secondary school which aims to help students to develop a good sense of social responsibility and a genuine passion to serve. The name of the school "Tak Oi" meaning charity, was specially chosen to complete the theological Virtues of Faith, Hope and Love, which are also the names of the M.I.C. schools in Hong Kong.
