Brief School History

Shau Kei Wan Government Secondary School (SGSS) was founded in September 1961,being the first co-educational government secondary grammar school established on Hong Kong Island in the post-war period.

As the present school building was still under construction, the school operated in the borrowed premises of Clementi Middle School on Fortress Hill Road. There were only six classrooms with 6 divisions of Form 1, which increased to 10 divisions the following year when it took in a further 4 divisions of Form 1. In order to maximize the use of these classrooms, the school was operated in two sessions.

The school moved to its present premises on 42 Chai Wan Road in August 1964 and was officially opened on 19 November by His Exellency the Governor, Sir David Trench, during the principalship of Mr. J.A. O’Hanrahan. The new school building was shared by SGSS and Belilios Public School with the former operating in the morning session and the latter, the afternoon session. When Belilios Public School moved to their new school building on Tin Hau Temple Road in April 1965, SGSS resumed full use of the school facilities.

In September 1964 there were five divisions each of Forms 3 and 4 and four each of Forms 1 and 2, the number of pupils totalling 712. The school commenced operating in single session as from April 1965. In 1966, two divisions of Form Lower 6 were added and in 1967, two divisions of Form Upper 6. The school building had 24 classrooms, a Hall, 6 specialist science rooms, and rooms for Music, Art, Geography and Wood-work.

學校簡史

筲箕灣官立中學建立於 1961 年,是香港政府在戰後於港島創立的第一所男女文法中學。
校舍建造期間,曾借用位於炮台山道金文泰中學的校舍授課,當時只有課室六間。首年開辦六班中一,次年再加開四班中一,合共十班。為了能盡用六間課室,學校分上下午兩節上課。

學校於 1964 年 8 月遷往現時位於柴灣道 42 號的校舍,並於 11 月 19 日由港督戴麟趾爵士主持啟用典禮。時任校長為韓力行先生。當時學校與庇理羅士女子中學共用此校舍,上午校為筲箕灣官立中學,下午校則是庇理羅士女子中學。在1965 年 4 月,後者遷往天后廟道的新校舍,柴灣道的校舍便由筲箕灣官立中學全面使用。

學校在 1964 年 9 月設立中三及中四各 5 班,中一及中二則各設 4 班。全校學生共 712 人。自 1965 年 4 月學校開始實行全日制,並於 1966 開辦中六文、理科各一班,翌年再開辦中七文、理科各一班。學校建有課室 24 間、禮堂一所、6間理科特別室,亦設有音樂室、美術室、地理室及木工室各一。
