Main Building of Salesian English School (Secondary Section)

Salesian English School (Secondary Section) is a secondary boys school in Hong Kong. Founded by the Roman Catholic religious institute the Salesians of Don Bosco, it is located in Chai Wan Road Shau Kei Wan, Hong Kong Island. The primary section of the Salesian English School was established in 1950 with the secondary section following in 1955. In 1959, the first senior secondary students sat the Hong Kong Certificate of Education Examination (HKCEE). Construction of the secondary school building finished in the same year when the school was opened by the then Hong Kong Governor Sir Robert Brown Black. The new indoor playground and new wing building project were launched in 1966 and completed in 1972.[1] Three years later, the secondary section converted from a private school to a subsidy school.

In year 1990, the first female teacher was employed at the school.

History[edit]

In 1941, due to demand, the Salesians of Don Bosco established the Salesian Children's Home under the Salesian Seminary, the progenitor of the Salesian English School. The school is located within the Salesian China Province of Mary Help of Christians.

In 2010, the Salesian English School celebrated its 60th Anniversary. [2][3]
