Metta School (慈光学校) was established in 2001 by Metta Welfare Association with the support of Ministry of Education (MOE) and National Council of Social Service (NCSS). The school began its operations at a holding site at Chai Chee Lane. In 2005, Metta School moved to its current building in Simei. In 2008, it obtained the Approved Training Centre (ATC) status to start the ITE Skills Certification (ISC) 1-module course; and in 2013, the school started the ISC 4-module course as approved by ITE. The new extension block became operational within the same year. In 2014, Metta School was one of five pilot schools for the S2W Prototype.
Metta School offers special education to students with Mild Intellectual Disability (MID) and to children who have Autism (ASD), aged between 7 to 21 years. Our students face functioning challenges and limitations in areas of daily life, such as communication, self-care, social skills, safety as well as the skills needed to live and work in the community.
