Public Works Department (J.B. Aitken)
9 Perth Street, Kowloon
Homantin Government Secondary School was built in 1964, at a time when many other Government schools were coming to life to address the growing need to provide education due to an upsurge in population. Two other schools were also under construction at the same time, one on Hoi Pa Street in Tsuen Wan and the other on Chai Wan Road in Shau Kei Wan.
Looking at the campus from above, it resembles a rectangular shape with an open-space carved in the middle. Throughout the building, the rectangular shape is a recurring theme as shown through their windows, interior design, and vertical columns. The school building houses 24 classrooms, meant to accommodate about 920 students. The campus also includes 10 practical laboratories and rooms for various subjects, a library, an assembly hall, a covered playground, and administrative offices. The classroom block is divided into two wings, one wing housing the teaching classrooms and the other housing the practical rooms. Connecting these distinct wings is a corridor that overlooks the open courtyard to the side.
