Utilizing the empirical quantitative data collected from 28 schools, this paper reports the global and spiritual wellbeing of 7,764 secondary 1 to 3 students from diverse cultural backgrounds in Hong Kong. Purposeful sampling method was chosen according to the nature of the study. Both the Multi-Dimensional Students’ Life Satisfaction Scale (MSLSS) (Huebner, 2001) and Spiritual Health and Life Orientation Measure (SHALOM) (Fisher, 1998) were administered to 7,764 secondary students. Findings have provided important data for raising awareness of gender differences in self perceived life satisfaction and wellbeing among ethnic minority South Asian and Chinese immigrant students.
