Daily Giving Service: A History of the Diocesan Girls’ School By Moira M. W. Chan-Yeung Cover Image


A history of a Hong Kong girls’ school that illustrates the city’s dynamic development through the first-hand and archival accounts of its alumni.

The Diocesan Girls’ School is one of Hong Kong’s oldest girls’ schools, founded during British rule in 1860. As an alumna of the school’s Class of 1955, Professor Moira Chan-Yeung traces the history of her alma mater from its establishment through its development over the last 150 years in Daily Giving Service. Having grown alongside Hong Kong as it expanded from a small city to a global metropolitan center,  Diocesan has become one of the most prominent girl’s schools in the city and serves a significant role in the history of education and growth in the region. With contributions from other alumni, this book recounts various aspects of school life throughout different eras, illustrating the connection between the socioeconomic development of Hong Kong and this cornerstone of regional education.
