Main Building of St. Stephen's Girls' College

The college, originally located in Caine Road and later moved to Babington Path, was founded in 1906 by the Church Missionary Society. The school building at the present site opened in 1924 and its East Wing completed in 1929. In 1940, it was converted into an emergency hospital. During World War II, the Japanese used the premises as a secret espionage training centre. The school reopened in 1945. The Junior School Building and the Jubilee Building were added respectively in 1949 and 1958. The Main Building is a four-storey structure with simple pitched roofs and enclosing a school hall in the centre named after Sir Robert Ho Tung. It was declared a monument in 1992.
