Tsing Yi Fishermen's Children's Primary School was a school for the children of fishermen on Tsing Yi Island in Hong Kong, founded by the Fish Marketing Organisation. Fishermen's Children's Primary Schools marked that fishing once was an important industry in Hong Kong and there was a concern to improve fishermen's literacy. The good harbours besides the Rambler Channel attracted many fishermen and fishing boats such that here was a need to have a school on Tsing Yi Island. The school was finally built on the top of a hill near Moon Tsai Tong. The school survived until the late 1980s when extensive reclamation forced most fishermen to abandon their living on the sea.
