To provide a steady stream of financial support, and build a platform for society to participate in the development of the school, the foundation has introduced Associate and Corporate Membership programmes. Please contact the Pao School Foundation Office regarding the application criteria and procedures.
The provision of scholarships and financial assistance is a key area supported by the Foundation, not only recognising students who have attained academic excellence, but also providing opportunities for talented students whose families cannot afford the full cost of education.
Currently, Pao School provides several scholarships including the Huang Sue Ing Girls Scholarship, Vincent & Lily Woo Scholarship, Junior Secondary Boys Scholarship, Chinese Immersion Scholarship and Senior Secondary Grade 1 & 2 Scholarship. Since 2012, the Foundation has awarded scholarships to 44 outstanding students, and provided financial assistance to 175 students, with tuition fees for these students reduced up to 60%.
The Foundation aims to increase the proportion of students receiving scholarships and financial assistance to 20%. There is no better investment than your child's education. We will be very grateful for your support of the scholarship programme.
"I'd like to thank YK Pao School for establishing such a fair and impartial scholarship policy. Winning a scholarship is a wonderful recognition of my hard work, and motivates me to study harder. In the future, I shall redouble my efforts to earn the IB diploma, and grow into a successful, happy and international citizen."
——Frank Zhuang, Scholarship Student
Campus development is a key strategic area supported by the Foundation.
We believe that an outstanding campus environment facilitates the success of students in their endeavours. With the Naming Right Programme, our Primary School and High School campuses will be continuously improved. Furthermore, we intend for this programme to help instil a philanthropic spirit in the student body, allowing our young scholars to become devoted global citizens.
Your generous support in the Naming Right Programme will play a key role in Pao School's long-term development. Currently, both the Primary School and High School campuses are participating in the programme. Please contact the Pao School Foundation Office for more details.
I am truly impressed and touched by the founders' efforts on behalf of Pao School. The challenges are tremendous, and the obstacles are great, but the experience can be most rewarding too. I am very proud of all that you have done. The Woo family is more than happy to support such a good cause.
Pao is a person I deeply admire. My experience with him had a profound impact on my life, helping shape me for the better. Throughout his life, Sir YK Pao continued to promote his motto: 'exercise persistently, use sparingly, work diligently'. As such, I made a donation to help build the fitness centre, naming it the Persistence Fitness Centre in hopes that Pao School can carry on Sir YK Pao's spirit and continue to cultivate excellent talent.
I have always believed that 'knowledge can change one's destiny,' and that an investment in education yields the greatest returns. YK Pao School represents a new model for education in China, emphasising whole-person education and cultivating a new generation of talents with an international perspective. My wife and I have donated to a pottery classroom, in hopes that students not only be able to 'mould' their spirits in the creative process, but also learn about traditional arts and crafts. We hope to see them pass on Chinese cultures and traditions, develop their knowledge of the world's many cultures, and become leaders in the international arena.
Teaching is one of the worthiest career pursuits. Devoted to the mission of bringing world-class global education to China, Sir YK Pao and his family founded Pao School. We can learn much from their great accomplishments. The Pao family has been a pioneer in the field of philanthropy in China; from them, we learn about the importance of social responsibility. As such, we have donated to build this club. It is our modest contribution to the development of Pao School.
