The Lady Hochoy Vocational Centre will celebrate its 25th anniversary on Friday, October 4.
As the student population increased at the Lady Hochoy Special School, Harding Drive, Cocorite, space for vocational training had become inadequate.
Located just a block away, on land leased by government, the construction of the Vocational Centre commenced. The building was completed in 1994 and the vocational department transferred to its new location at Dunlop Drive, Cocorite. Today, the Vocational Centre has a total enrolment of 80 (male and female) trainees and caters to intellectually challenged young adults from 16 years of age. It has been managed since its inception by Sr Margarita Chan O Carm together with her loyal staff.
