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.
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.
New students are to receive basic information including the school rules in their first week in PLHKS. The discipline department mistress speaks to all new secondary one students in an induction programme about the rules they have to obey throughout their life as a student in the school.
Students can be awarded or punished by the school for their behavior within the school and outside the school.
Students are to be awarded usually because they served themselves as class monitor, subject leader or other means of servicing. Students are also awarded for prizes gained in inter-school competitions.
