|Auditorium stage-centre (360-degree view virtual tour)
The auditorium boasts an expansive 1270 sq. m of floor area. It entertains a seating plan for 1,000 comfortably, making it possible for the whole School to assemble for the first time in Wah Yan history.
The generous space of the stage, professional sound and AV systems, well appointed control room and balcony space are prerequisites for high standard performances and functions.

Right next to the control-panel room, the balcony is a good place for setting up cameras to record performances, conferences, seminars, as well as basketball matches.
|Covered playground-looking from the east
The Wu Jieh Yee Plaza, a 930 sq. m multi-purpose covered area, ensures the continuation of activities despite adverse weather conditions. It serves as a pre-function lobby area for activities held in the auditorium upstairs.
|Covered playground-looking from the south
The 6 m high ceiling opens up the vista of lawn area and allows the free flow of air between the lawn and the Stubbs Road area. Facilities on the left include a prayer room, a gym room, changing rooms, lavatories and more.
The tanquil Cheung Lap Kwun Garden on the roof provides a 350 sq. m haven in which students can conduct activities or relax in a peaceful environment against the backdrop of the breath-taking panoramic view of Wanchai.
|Classrooms on the roof
The 3 classrooms adjacent to the roof-garden are partitioned with folding doors that can be opened up to create a large multi-purpose room. White-boards and AV equipment are installed in the classrooms. Full height folding glass doors facing the roof garden to the north make the classrooms bright and airy.
