Origin

The family of Pui Ying has expanded tremendously since the establishment of Pui Ying School in Guangzhou by its founder, Dr. Henry V. Noyes, in 1879. The predecessors and many others have made great efforts to establish the school and educate the young through the years. Today, alumni and alumni associations of Pui Ying are found all over the world.

The Board of Directors of Pui Ying Middle School of Hong Kong always remembers with gratitude that our founder with a bold vision came alone from America to China to preach the gospel and promote education in the midst of adversities. To commemorate our founder’s noble spirit of serving people in the world, the Board of Directors adopted a resolution to establish Pui Ying Christian Services Society in Vancouver in 1992.
