Grading: Grade 3 (Main Block & School Building)
Situated in Sheung Shui, Tsung Pak Long is a village built by five different clans. Five ancestral halls can be found neatly arranged at the entrance of the village. Bok Man School is the oldest surviving village school in Hong Kong. It was initially a private school established by the villagers before 1919. In 1919, elders of the village raised funds to build two new classrooms for the school — the current rooms two and three next to the ancestral hall. At that time, students of the school were primarily children in the village.
Bok Man School later became the first registered school in the New Territories and one of the earliest aided schools in the area. The school building has been expanded three times. The existing school campus is the result of the expansion work carried out in 1962. The school, which became well-developed over the years, had more than 700 students at its peak. Nevertheless, the school had to cease operation in 2005 due to insufficient enrolment.
The project is supported by Lord Wilson Heritage Trust.
