Open Day Welcomes More than 300 Visitors

Date: Tuesday 02 Apr 2019

The HKSKH Archives welcomed more than 300 visitors to Bishop’s House this past Saturday. The theme was “Education for a Better Society: Historical Contributions of HKSKH Schools,” and archival materials and artefacts were on display to interpret how the Church has been involved in education at many different levels since its founding. Dr. Patricia Chiu, member  of the HKSKH History and Archives Committee and a specialist in the study of education in Hong Kong, was guest curator. Archbishop Paul Kwong cut the ribbon to open the exhibit, and a combined alumni/ae choir from St. Paul’s College and St. Stephen’s Girls’ School sang several songs and hymns. Open Day featured guided tours in Cantonese and English, and the event was facilitated by volunteers who came from three HKSKH parishes. The March 30th event lasted from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm with visitors from the church and the wider community coming and going throughout the day. Provincial Archivist the Reverend Professor Philip Wickeri observed, “The people were genuinely interested and inspired by the exhibits. I am most grateful to our archives staff. Ms. Michelle Lin, Dr. Ruiwen Chen and Ms. Tse Yim Fong for making this our fourth annual Open Day such a success.”
