A Conservation Love Story

Mark your diary : 3-5pm on 30 July, 2022
Venue: Lecture Hall, HK Heritage Discovery Centre, Kln Park ( first come first served )

Ms Amy MW Ho, Supervisor of MCS Primary Section, will tell a love story that started 85 years ago – of how MCS, a building of unique architectural appeal, was designed and conceived; of how she has played a part in the history of HK including during the 1940’s war years; of how this awesome building is preserved and maintained to excellent conditions; and of how she continually rebalances to accommodate modern education facilities for the hundreds of bustling young girls nurtured daily in her embrace.

MCS alum and member of 文物復現 繡閣猶馨Conservation Project, Ms Iris Kwan, will share her experience from a volunteer/ organizer of the recent conservation exercise from the discovery of an attic with its trove of textile artefacts, tracing back to the history of the sewing workshop from 1924 to the organisation of a conservation process involving specialists and over 100 volunteers. The speaker will also reveal the operation of the sewing workshop and the entrepreneurial spirit and benevolence of the Maryknoll Sisters at its operation.
