In 1993, the Lions Education Foundation was incorporated under the guidance of District Governor Lion Stephen Chow with an aim to broaden Hong Kong Lions commitment and services in the territories educational field.
The Primary objects of the Foundation are :

To further enhance the Lions Education Foundation's commitment to serve and maintain this non-profit making school, a school management committee comprised of District 303's past District Cabinet members is formed with the special responsibility to manage the school.

By 2002, the total staff and student population will reach 1,000. The atmosphere in the College among all teachers and students are genuine and sincere, and are all striving forward diligently to meet the target and expection as set by the management committee, Lions and the society.
