The Pui Ching Middle Schools (Chinese: 培正中学; pinyin: Péizhèng Zhōngxué) refers to a system of Baptist secondary schools first founded in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, China and later Hong Kong and Macau.

History[edit]

The original Guangzhou school was founded in 1889 by local Chinese Baptists, and was the first Christian school in China founded by local Christians rather than foreign missionaries. The Guangzhou school was disbanded and students moved to Macau in January 1938 due to the spread of World War II to Southern China. The Guangzhou school was subsequently reopened after the war.

School song[edit]

The lyrics of the school song come from a poem, written by Li Zhu-hou, a Chinese language teacher at Pui Ching Middle School. The song was arranged by Ho An-tung, with melody identical to Wien Neêrlands Bloed, the former national anthem of the Netherlands.[1][2]

Macau School[edit]

The Guangzhou school was moved to Macau in 1938. It is now an integrated grammar school with more than 3,000 students in its kindergarten, primary school, junior high and senior high sections.
