School Song

Oh, let yonder hills of Shatin resound,

With joy, the song to Thee our hearts are bound,

Lively and young, the Truth we found.

Friends loving, caring and sharing.

Pentecost, we learn the Way.

Pentecost, we live each day.

One Faith, one Hope, one Love;

O Lord, bless our school today.

School Facilities

PLHKS provides wireless internet connection (WiFi) for academic staff. Current students can gain access to the internet by using one of the on-site workstations in the premises. A lift can be accessed by physically-challenged students, staff and visitors. It is located at the end of each corridor next to the rear staircase.

Each student and staff are given an identification card (student card/ staff card) which has a contactless technology. The card is used as morning (and sometimes afternoon) attendance taking and is used to activate the library copier. The issue desk in the library scanned the traditional barcode on the card for book clearance. The card is free of charge at its first issuance. Subsequent issuance of the card is charged at at least HKD$35 with a progressive penalty applied which varies every school year.
