St. Teresa Secondary School (Chinese: 德蘭中學; pinyin: Délán Zhōng Xué; Jyutping: dak1 laan4 zung1 hok6) is a Roman Catholic girls secondary school in Ho Man Tin, Kowloon, Hong Kong. It is directly governed by the Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong. The school's patroness is St. Teresa of Lisieux.

Class structure[edit]

There are four classes in F.1 through F.6, some of which are split into smaller groups.

All classes are named after Confucian or Christian virtues, which are: Love (愛), Filial Devotion (孝), Respect for elder brothers(悌), Loyalty (忠), Honesty (信) and Ritual (禮). In F.6 and F.7, only Love and Filial Devotion is used.

History[edit]

The school's indirect predecessor is Precious Blood Golden Jubilee Secondary School, which was administered by the Sisters of the Precious Blood. In 1977, due to misusage of school funds and suspected corruption, some teachers contacted the ICAC and informed the students. It was followed by the diocese's take-over and suppression, a series of student protests and sit-ins, and eventually the closure of the school on 14 May 1978. St. Teresa Secondary School was opened on its former site, with the protestors initiated the secular Ng Yuk Secondary School.
