This chapter takes a global education project conducted in a faith-based, ethnically diverse school as a prism to consider contemporary politics of diversity in Hong Kong. The school’s climate – even without a broader diversity policy in the city – provides important lessons for enabling support structures for ethnic minority students. Despite making the school culturally relevant to students, school representatives spoke of a deep divide between the school and the local Chinese community. This perceived division, we suggest, elicits necessary discussion about moving forward proactive efforts to support fruitful relations across cultural groups, which thus far are marked by paucity at the broader structural and societal levels.
