學校歷史


Part One

創校與機遇    (1977-1993)

七十年代中期,本港推行九年免費教育,中學學位需求殷切,香港天主教教區與教育署商議後,同意接收南昌街石硤尾官立小學校舍,開辦一所男女文法中學。

 

1977年九月,聖芳濟各書院正式開校,儲富有先生擔任校長,設有中一級四班。由於改建工程尚未完成,開校首月借用白田天主教小學的課室上課,十月改建工程完畢,學校正式遷入,與石硤尾官立小學共用校舍;直至1980年,我校完全接管校舍,是年增至十二班。

 

開校伊始,學校漸次成長,成績斐然,學生在學業成績、體藝活動、公民教育活動均獲得卓越成就。及至1990年,由於校舍空間不敷應用,校董會建議申請遷校至粉嶺,在教區大力支持下,遷校工作正式展開。(273字)

 

School founded and the opportunities seized (1977-1993)

In the mid-1970s, 9-year free education was implemented in Hong Kong. As a result, there was a high demand for secondary school places. Discussion between The Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong and the Education Department ensued and it was agreed that the Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong would utilise the grounds of Shek Kip Mei Government Primary School on Nam Cheong Street and set up a co-educational grammar secondary school.

 

In September 1977, with Mr. Chu Fu Yau as the Principal, St. Francis of Assisi’s College was officially set up. There were four form one classes. As renovation work had not yet been completed, the school operated on the campus of Pak Tin Catholic Primary School. One month later, the school moved in and shared the premises with Shek Kip Mei Primary School. It was not until 1980 that the school took over the entire campus and the number of classes increased to twelve.

 

As the school gradually developed, the students achieved excellent academic results as well as achievements in sports, art and civil education. In 1990, due to the lack of campus space, the School Management Committee proposed to relocate the school to Fanling. With full support from the Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong, relocation work officially started.

融合及成長 (1993-2001)

九十年代初,香港新市鎮不斷發展,新界北區中學學位需求增加,聖芳濟各書院由市區遷校粉嶺,服務北區。

 

1993年九月,粉嶺新校正式開課,由儲富有校長領導,是年開設中一級九班、中四級六班,共十五班。容可度副校長留任石硤尾原校作過渡期的校長。同年,石硤尾原校停收中一級學生,並逐年順序遞減班級,至1997年最後一屆中五級畢業,石硤尾原校完成歷史使命。

 

政府提供予粉嶺新校的為當時最新型的標準校舍,設備極為完善:共有二十六間課室、十五間專科特別室、一座獨立禮堂、一個標準籃球場和天台有蓋操場。學校的優良傳統加上嶄新設施,粉嶺新校課程發展多元化,包括學術培育、靈性教育、音樂培訓、體藝活動,為莘莘學子提供全人教育。(293字)

 

Fusion and growth (1993-2001)

In the mid-1990s, the new towns in Hong Kong were developing rapidly. There was a growing demand for secondary school places in North District. After moving from an urban area to Fanling, St Francis of Assisi’s College began serving the district.

 

In September 1993, led by Principal Chu Fu Yau, classes in the new campus officially started. There were nine F.1 and six F.4 classes – fifteen classes in total. Vice-Principal Yung Ho Do stayed in Shek Kip Mei and became the Principal during the transition period. F.1 admission was then suspended and the number of classes in Shek Kip Mei decreased year by year. In 1997, the last batch of F.5 students graduated and this chapter finally came to an end.

 

The new school campus was built according to the latest models at that time, with excellent facilities. There were 26 classrooms, 15 special room, an assembly hall separated from the main building, a standard basketball court and a covered playground. Combining the finest traditions, the newest facilities and the variety of the school curriculum, our students are equipped with holistic education.

千禧十載 (2001-2012)

2000年,儲富有校長調任他校,由容可度副校長署任校長一職。2001年蔡高亮校長到任,同年,容可度副校長完成校歌創作,標誌著千禧十年學校發展的開始。

 

學與教方面,學生在公開考試屢獲佳績,成績亮麗。設施方面,校舍新翼落成,建造新型的電腦室、舞蹈室、學生會室等,為聯課活動提供充裕的空間。課程發展上,教師亦在充足的支援下準備新高中學制。踏入千禧,緊貼教育發展趨勢,一連串教師專業發展活動旨在提升教師運用資訊科技的能力,好能提升課堂互動。

 

期間,學校歷經二十五周年、三十周年、三十五周年校慶,藉著慶誌,學生、教師、校友及家長加深對學校辦學宗旨的認同,共同邁向達成學校的願景,並以校訓「進德修業、敬主愛人、和平美善、芳濟精神」為綱領,協力發展學校。(311字)

 

The millennial decade (2001-2012)

In 2000, Principal Chu Fu Yau was transferred to another school. Vice-Principal Mr. Yung Ho Do was appointed as the Acting Principal and was succeeded by Mr. Choy Ko Leung in 2001. Vice-Principal Mr. Yung Ho Do finished writing the school song in the same year, symbolising the new beginning of the school’s millennial decade.

 

Academically, our students achieved outstanding performance in public examinations. In order to provide sufficient space for co-curricular activities, the new wing was completed, adding a modern computer room, a dance studio, a Student Union room…etc. As for the curriculum development, teachers were given full support to prepare for the New Senior Secondary academic structure. Stepping into the millennium and following closely on the trends in education, a series of teachers’ professional development activities were organised to enhance their information technology literacy, which in turn enriched the interactive learning and teaching experiences in the lessons.

 

During the decade, the school experienced its 25th, 30th and 35th anniversaries. Through the celebrations, students, teachers, alumni and parents deepened their connections with the school’s vision and worked together to realise it. With the school’s mottos ‘cultivating virtues and advancing studies, respecting God and loving people, upholding peace, kindness and the Franciscan spirit’, concerted efforts were made to develop the school.

2017年起,學校銳意發展價值教育,落實香港天主教教育五大核心價值,並藉學校宗教環境建設,營造靈修氛圍;此外,透過語文活動及多元課外活動,發展學生各方面的能力,發掘多元潛能,提升學生自信的同時,好能讓每個人善用自己的才能及生命。(278字)

 

Inheritance and continuation (2012-Present)

From decades of tradition, the school has aspired to serve the students in North District. Mr. Lau Man Kit and Dr. Yick Ho Kuen succeeded as the Principal in 2012 and 2017 respectively and we continue to realise the school’s mission.

 

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the school, a series of celebration activities including Francesco English Musical, 40th Anniversary Mass, 40th Anniversary Dinner and the Catholic Pilgrimage to Assisi were held in 2016, allowing everyone to experience God’s blessing. With the Franciscan Spirit, caring for the poor, respecting God and loving people, the school continues to spread the good news of gospel.

 

From 2017, the school has been determined to promote Values Education, upholding and passing on the five core values in Catholic Education through creating a religious environment and cultivating an atmosphere for spiritual formation. Also, the school is keen on broadening learning experiences for students to explore potential and boost confidence, enabling them to fully utilise their talents.
