The opening ceremony was then held in 1969, with Sir David Trench as the officiator. The school council was established on the same year, with Ho Chuen Yiu as the chairman. In 1970, Tang Yuek Fan took over as the chairman of the school.

In 1983, Lau Wong Fat took over as the chairman of the school council. The parent-teacher association was also founded in 1985. The alumni association was founded in 1990.
