Vibrant Learning Environment
Chai Wan THEi campus, a new purpose-built campus is now in operation. The attractive twin-tower building design - rarely seen in Hong Kong schools - will provide a dynamic and engaging learning environment for students. The green architecture and design - opening the campus to an adjacent public park to embrace outdoor public green space and enjoy a high permeability of natural light and air - establish its eco-friendly credentials.
