Points of Interest 景點 > Amah Shelter 歇腳亭


In the olden days, the school did not have a lunch supplier. The students’ families would prepare their lunches and they would be delivered to the school by their amahs. All amahs would wait for the little girls in the shelter. This is how the shelter got its name “Amah Shelter”.

Next to the amah shelter is an arcaded single entry dog-legged staircase leading to the podium in front of the main entrance. It was built of ashlar with ornamental balustrading, voussoirs and keystones to arches, nailhead projections, and other decorative features.
