Buddhist Fat Ho Memorial College (Chinese: 佛教筏可紀念中學; Jyutping: fat1 gaau1 fat6 ho2 gei2 nim6 zung1 hok6) is a Buddhist school in Tai O, Lantau Island, Hong Kong. The school is an E.M.I and a Chinese medium instructor run by the Hong Kong Buddhist Association and sponsored by the Po Lin Monastery.[1] Students here are allowed to pick what language they want.

Background[edit]

The school opened in 1977 and is a Direct Subsidy Scheme (DSS) institution.

Fee and Charges[edit]

Since this school is a DSS school, people need to pay tuition fees. The school fee is HK$ 3,000 for form 1 and Tong fai is HK$ 290 for form 4, 5, 6, 7. The tuition fee is HK$ 300 dollars per month.[when?]

Transportation[edit]

Since Tai O is a remote location, its students use schools buses to get to Mui Wo. Public buses also go to Tung Chung or Mui Wo. There are also taxis, which are inconvenient since Lantau Island has only 50 taxis and they are hard to find.

Notes[edit]

Because of the school's location close to the sea, during a Typhoon 3 warning there are no classes.
