1890 Ellis Kadoorie Chinese Schools Society, Sai Ying Pun

The Ellis Kadoorie Chinese Schools Society, whose work extends through Hong Kong, Canton, and Shanghai, was formed at the suggestion of the well-known merchant whose name it bears. Its chief object is to overcome the difficulty felt by the Chinese poor of obtaining a sound education on Western lines, and at the same time to see that the Chinese language itself is taught. The curriculum embraces a wide range of subjects, from rudimentary consonantal sounds to higher and commercial arithmetic, map-drawing, history, and translation. The Hong Kong school is situated in the neighbourhood of the Government Civil Hospital.
