Carmel Pak U Secondary School

Carmel Pak U Secondary School is a Christian fundamentalism co-educational secondary school in Tai Po, Hong Kong.

School Mission

Carmel Pak U Secondary School is founded on the Christian Faith with the aim of providing whole-person education which caters to the moral, intellectual, physical, social, aesthetic and spiritual development of the students.

School Features

School Management

In light of the four basic areas of growth of Jesus Christ stated in Luke 2:52 in the Bible, four committees, namely, Academic Affairs Committee, Discipline and Moral Education Committee, Religious Activities Committee, and Extra-Curricular Activities Committee, are formed to take care of the development of students in these four areas. Additionally, a committee named Guidance and Award Scheme Committee is formed to guide the students to have a balanced growth in those four areas and to acknowledge their attainments through the Award Scheme.

In order to provide a better learning environment, modern facilities are well-equipped in each classroom and special room. There are 8 devices and 1 screen in every room, including the LCD projector, visualizer, overhead projector, DVD player, videocassette recorder, tape recorder, wireless PA system, air-conditioner and the screen.
