What is the InterMission: Delia Wing’s Revitalization?
The revitalisation of Delia’s Wing supports the enhancement of educational programs offered at the School in the areas of academics, athletics and aesthetics. The new Delia’s Wing will be a hub for developing students’ creativity, innovation, skills for critical thinking, communication and collaboration, all of which are necessary attributes to succeed at school and beyond in the complex and rapidly-changing world we are experiencing in the 21st century.
Why do we have to revitalize the campus?
The new Delia’s Wing building will comprise upgraded facilities for cultivating the talents of Hopers. The design of Delia’s Wing includes state-of-the-art technology, granting opportunities for creativity through visual and performing arts.
Additional space for athletic training provides the potential to develop each girl in the Good Hope tradition. Student dormitories facilitate the development of independence and self-reliance and constitute an excellent advantage in offering international experience here in Hong Kong.
We envision the new Delia’s Wing will provide enriched and diverse learning experiences for Hopers to develop their potential, boost their confidence and enhance their abilities.
Does the school have a timeline of how the funding priorities will be determined?
Definitely! Good Hope School has invested an endowment provided by the M.I.C. Sisters to kick-start the redevelopment in 2016. The existing funding will be sufficient for the first phase of the project. Good Hope School will be actively engaged with stakeholders to raise funds for our intention to complete the redevelopment by end of 2019.
Why don’t we just raise the school fees or apply a capital levy for this project?
Obviously, the School does not want current students and their parents to be the only ones to shoulder this financial burden. The 3-year fundraising campaign not only aims at revitalising Delia’s Wing to provide a more advanced learning environment for Hopers, but also undertakes the mission of building closer bonds among the Good Hope family by engaging the many stakeholders of the school community, including alumni, teaching and non-teaching staff, and friends of Good Hope.
How will the money be spent?
The funds raised for the revitalisation of Delia’s Wing will be used for the construction of the infrastructure as well as the facilities
. We are certain that current and future students of Good Hope will greatly benefit from the revitalisation of Delia’s Wing, bringing their enriched learning experience beyond the school and influencing others positively in society. This is indeed a very costly but meaningful project. With your support, we believe that many more of our students will benefit.
How will the funds raised be overseen?
The funds raised will be overseen and closely monitored by the School Management and the Fundraising Committee. Annual updates will be shared with all stakeholders as well as the public via the Revitalisation of Delia’s Wing website.

We invite anyone who wants to bring hope to our students and the Good Hope community to make a contribution. We would like to cordially invite our
- alumni and/or their parents who want to express their gratitude for what the School has done for them.
- current students and their parents who want to bring joy to the young Hopers.

Why is participation so important?
Your participation will be crucial to this meaningful project. It is only a great opportunity for our past students and friends to engage in and re-establish a close relationship with the School community, but also help our Hopers to pursue their dreams. With the new infrastructure and facilities in the Good Hope campus, current and prospective students will be better equipped to develop their creativity, innovation, critical thinking, communication and collaboration skills, such as are necessary for success in the 21st century.
