1 EDITOR’S MESSAGE International schools set fine examples for an all-rounded education The growing popularity of international schools is a direct result of parents’ general dissatisfaction with the mainstream education system where the emphasis lie on quantity instead of quality, where rote learning predominates over reasoning and imagination, and where examination results override every other consideration, not to mention the intense drilling for primary school students created by the TSA, or BCA, or whatever new acronyms the education bureaucrats can come up with!
International schools offer a welcome alternative, and are increasingly held in high regard by parents because of their innovative curriculum and liberal teaching methodology. Traditional schools focus on dishing out information en masse in order to complete a demanding syllabus, whereas international schools encourage and support students to seek the knowledge and answers for themselves. The holistic education is effective in nurturing children to become intelligent, all-rounded whole persons who can realize their full potentials.
Many students dread school because of the totally unjustifiable load of homework that they must finish every night, robbing them of time to develop their interests outside text books, and the precious opportunities of bonding with parents and siblings.
Term breaks and vacations do not bring relief as assignments would multiply from each and every subject teacher. Some over-zealous parents are partly to blame because they put pressure on the school for rigorous drilling, and complain when their children seem to have too much spare time at home for iphones, TV games and other electronic gadgetries. It is perfectly correct to pay attention to children’s schooling and personal development, but an over- programmed, over-protected or over-reliant child could turn out to be a misfit and a failure later in life. Positive reinforcement and encouragement for our children is one thing, relentless pressurization and regimentation is quite another.
In assembling experts from this education sector, The Standard’s International Schools Fair will provide you with the most updated information, and answers to a comprehensive range of questions to help you make the optimum choice for your children. Features Editor

| International Schools Guide 2018 7 6 YCIS Embraces Integrated Subject Learning The Integrated Curriculum for Years 7 to 9 is the new Middle School programme at Yew Chung International School (YCIS), reinforcing the school's vision of a vibrant learning community of self-directed, globally minded and enthusiastic life-long learners. Students at YCIS are engaged in authentic educational experiences that develop and nurture them as they develop into young adults. YCIS uses flexible teaching methods to ensure that the needs of all students are met, whatever their learning style, helping them to develop life-long skills so that they graduate as global citizens.
Each year, the integrated programme will be introduced to the next year level and will eventually run from Year 7 through to Upper School (Year 10 and above). At each stage, teachers will concentrate on nurturing this approach in order to help students connect with their peers, their classroom area, their teachers and the school as a whole.
The new curriculum combines the traditional classroom, where teachers are the subject experts, with the ‘integrated programme,’ where students approach the topics with a skills-based emphasis as they gain expertise. The new learning areas will be used in many different ways so that students benefit from the flexibility of their new learning space. The current high standards of YCIS will be maintained as students gain the necessary skills to outwardly communicate the knowledge they are inwardly gaining.
Collaborative learning spaces YCIS is the first school to bring the concept of learning communities from USA company Fielding Nair International (FNI) to Hong Kong.
Students from Years 7 to 9 and their teachers have already been enjoying the benefits of this concept and have made the transition towards deeper, more integrated subject learning. Now the other parts of the YCIS Secondary campus are transforming as well, in order to facilitate flexible and collaborative learning communities. How subjects are combined For selected periods of the timetable the whole year group of Middle School and all relevant teachers can unite and link subjects. For example, students exploring why and how people write autobiographies in an English lesson were able to link their research to a major river in Asia—the Yangtze.
Looking at the river's birth point, its trickle to gain momentum and the landmarks along its journey towards the sea became a fascinating 'life journey'— an autobiography from the river’s viewpoint. Students could choose to work in small groups or pairs to plan and present a unique piece of creative written work.
A ‘non-classroom’ environment Students and year group teachers are now able to use the open-air podium space, which offers a 'non- classroom' environment, intended to inspire. Their various subject teachers collectively plan and execute the sessions, mixing and overseeing the students’ work. The flexible learning spaces have been specifically designed to facilitate observational, information-based, project-based, spontaneous, peer and individual learning. With a range of seating and gathering options, students are able to select the optimum setup for their own personal learning needs.
Amar Sharma, Head of Year 7 has found the new arrangements to work exceptionally well, saying, “In just a short time, we have already seen advanced student collaboration and positive responses. The Learning Communities do help maximizing students’ engagement and inspire them in a lot of ways.” Mrs. Cecille Nazareno, Year 8 Team Leader added, “Because of the free flow design of the learning areas, it really supports the integrated subjects learning. The whole floor is their classroom.” The designs have been developed over several months, with input and guidance from academic leaders and specialists, and the project is set to significantly enhance the YCIS learning spaces and bring them up to speed with the school's progressive international curriculum.
Flexible learning spaces are created to provide areas for a range of activities, albeit in an individual setting, peer learning or group settings. Another advantage of collaboration with such an environment is the limitless adaptation options, as per learning objective calls for.
With a range of seating and gathering options, students are able to select the optimum setup for their own personal learning needs.
| International Schools Guide 2018 8 Co-curricular programme develops a child’s full potentials Students at Mount Kelly School go through an extended, rewarding school day as they participate in a variety of intellectual, social and physical activities and co-curricular programmes. O pen since September 2017, Mount Kelly School Hong Kong (MKSHK) provides an outstanding curriculum developed by eminent educators in the UK. Aside from adopting the world’s best in contemporary educational practices, it also offers quality opportunities for students to develop their interests and realize their full potentials.
In line with the school pattern in Mount Kelly in the UK, a school day in MKSHK runs from 8.30 am till 4.30 pm each day. The school of course recognizes the importance of children making significant academic progress. There is, for example, a strong emphasis on incorporating the Chinese language as an integral part of a student’s overall knowledge. And the importance of information technology in the modern world is underlined by lessons in coding, robotics, programming and usage of state-of-the-art technologies. But the school also ensures that every child is given opportunities to discover interests and talents beyond the classroom, helping them build character, teamwork skills and self-confidence.
Having an extended school day means that children can complete homework in their 20-minute ‘Prep’ session after lessons, and then they have access to school clubs each day from 3.30 to 4.30 pm when they can try something new, or focus on improving their development in a specific area, from sports, music, arts, computing, public speaking, to learning a new language or calming skills, such as yoga and mindfulness through art. The school prides itself on, for example, its very popular table tennis programme which is designed by world champion Wang Hui ( 王輝 ), and taught by China’s National Coach Jin Yin Hua ( 金恩華 ).
The beauty of this arrangement is that it bolsters family bonding. When pupils return home, they can have a relaxing time for interest pursuits, read, talk to family members, have dinner together and go to bed at a good time so their brains are fully rested for the next day. This schedule obviates bad practices like completing tedious hours of homework, being argumentative with parents and going to bed very late and exhausted. The co-curricular programmes encompass a diverse range of sports, performing arts, technology, communication and leadership training, such as the Shackleton Programme designed to develop and celebrate leadership qualities and teamwork.
Through the programme, students and their parents participate in various activities like mountain hikes and kayaking whereby they gain valuable life skills. The teachers at Mount Kelly all are highly qualified and committed to nurturing student’s confidence, social development, physical well-being, intellectual growth and academic success. All campuses feature state-of-the-art facilities, and pupils are given the opportunity to transfer between campuses.
All Mount Kelly School Hong Kong graduates will be granted guarantee placement at Mount Kelly UK Senior School in Devon, England. This advantage provides seamless transition from Preparatory school into one of the UK’s leading Senior Schools, which in turn will lead to excellent university placements across the world.

| International Schools Guide 2018 14 Every child is unique. American School Hong Kong (ASHK) addresses each child’s needs - academically, socially, and emotionally – with an accurate individual assessment and provides the specific supports, guidance, and learning experiences aligned to these needs. The learning experiences at the American School Hong Kong are unique in that they incorporate world renowned programs into an integrated approach to learning that supports and encourages innovation and creativity.
Personalized learning experiences start from the use of formative, summative, and standardized assessment data to drive instruction around the needs of the child. For example, teachers use reading benchmark data (obtained from a comprehensive US standardized assessment administered in the classroom by the teacher) along with each child’s Rasch Unit (RIT) score (obtained from an additional standardized assessment - Measures of Academic Progress - MAP test) to develop a personalized learning plan.
Each child’s learning can then be compared and analyzed in great depth, allowing the school to provide a comprehensive program that prepares each child to continue their academic journey in any top school in the world. All-rounded education ASHK offers a holistic American and international education program taught by North American teachers. Its rigorous curriculum includes the US Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) with an IB Diploma option. Lessons are lively and interactive using a STEAM integrated approach that incorporates science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics.
Rather than looking at the blackboard and listening to never-ending lectures, students are guided to ask, imagine, plan, create, and improve. As a result, they are able to share their understandings using different modalities, allowing for a more individualized experience.
Learning is a pleasure in a caring and nurturing environment where children feel safe, secure, and respected. In addition to academic studies, a school counselor is there to provide social and emotional support in the classroom as children learn how to resolve conflict and how to offer support for each other. These lifelong skills are invaluable as they bloom and grow. Interested applicants are invited to forward an expression of interest to Admissions Director at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Personalized learning with a holistic approach Standing at the forefront of education, American School Hong Kong develops well- rounded, motivated, and thoughtful global citizens, equipping students with the academic, social, and entrepreneurial skills required for success in the 21st century.

It started its first class in 1994 and today KIS runs two separate curricula, the Korean Section and International Section. The Korean section teaches in Korean, while the international section teaches in English. At the primary level of the International Section, the core subjects of the curriculum, i.e. Mathematics, Sciences and English, are designed in accordance with the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), while other subjects are based on the broad curricular outline of the National Curriculum for England.
Students have to complete the Cambridge Primary Checkpoint external examinations in the core subjects at the end of Year 6. Chinese, Spanish and Korean classes are offered as elective subjects. At the secondary level, students continue to take the core subjects plus Art, PE, Information Computer Technology, Korean/Mandarin, and Music, from Year 7 to 9 following the Cambridge Lower Secondary Programme (CLSP). At the end of Year 9, students will complete the Cambridge Checkpoint external examinations in the core subjects. Years 10 and 11 follow a programme of studies leading to the group award of the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), an international certificate based on a syllabus and examinations developed by Cambridge for students in countries outside of England.
In Years 12 & 13, students follow the Cambridge International AS and A2 Level Courses. Year 12 students should complete up to four subjects at the Cambridge International AS Level and select three of the subjects in Year 13 to complete the Cambridge International A2 Level.

| International Schools Guide 2018 22 Students learn best with strong academics foundation coupled with remarkable peak moments The American International S c h o o l o f f e r s u n i q u e opportunities for students to grow holistically as global citizens. Founded in 1986, the American International School (AIS) has served the local and international communities of Hong Kong for 32 years. The distinctive red-brick campus on Waterloo Road, Kowloon Tong, is home to 885 students from early childhood through elementary, middle, and high school.
Over the years, AIS has built a strong reputation for the rigor of its academic program and successfully preparing its graduates to enter the finest universities in the United States and worldwide (visit http://www.
ais.edu.hk/graduation-beyond/ for details.) Fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), AIS is an accredited center for College Board’s SAT Exams. AIS offers a robust US Advanced Placement program to help prepare students for the demands of university education, as well as being one of the first schools in the world offering the exclusive AP Capstone Program™ in High School.
As a compulsory part of the AIS High School curriculum, the Outdoor Education and Leadership Program (OELP) aims to build a deeper understanding of our environment, the responsibilities we share as global citizens, and adds significant value to a student’s college application through a dedicated community service hours program. This is important as many colleges and universities are seeking students with a strong academic background combined with evidence of a well-rounded education. Since 2005, AIS has partnered with leading non- governmental organizations (NGOs) from around the world in implementing community service projects through this program.
Through each carefully-designed program, students face challenges, work together in teams to problem- solve, overcome fears, and learn more about living in a global community. The students focus on a service project such as helping to construct homes for the underprivileged, or exploring a specific global issue surrounding animal or environmental conservation. Each overseas program enables students to experience a different culture, make connections with the locals that they work closely with, and often live among the local villagers. The feedback from the school’s survey reassures that students are not only having fun and developing friendships, but are also maturing in their roles as citizens of the world.
“Adventure Week taught me not to take things for granted and made me realize how truly lucky I was.” Research shows, “students learn best when the learning is punctuated by truly memorable peak moments.” (What schools can do to help students engage more in learning by Chip & Dan Heath, an article published online in Education Week, January 10, 2018). In many ways, this is what occurs during the OELP program, as students engage in activities that connect to the real world and make a difference. These experiences challenge them personally and positively impact their attitudes and behaviors. The experiences have a lasting impact on students which often remain a highlight for them throughout their time at high school, and beyond.

Since its establishment in 2001, Foundation Global Education (FGE) has provided one-on-one counseling to students in order to help build an impressive portfolio based on their academic achievements and extracurricular activities.
In addition, the group explores the personalities and talents of each student and offers a thorough curriculum which helps them determine their positioning. Advices from FGE are not based only on rankings, but also on their extensive understanding of the schools, and the years of experience communicating with admissions officers. FGE is confident that their close relationships with admission directors will allow them to establish positive connections between families and schools, while sharing industry insights to help students stand out from the crowd.
The group’s network spans over 61 cities in 15 countries, and over the last 17 years, they have directed admission efforts to over 1,000 top independent schools. F G E b e l i e v e s t h a t s c h o o l applications are a family affair, hence they meet with families as a whole to determine the best approach for every case. Through establishing a long- term relationship with every family, counselors are able to strategically develop a tailor-made training program for students to express themselves confidently and effectively. FGE recommends the best strategy after taking the time to understand each child’s personality, interests, strengths, and goals.
C o n s i d e r i n g t h e v a r i e t y o f international schools in Hong Kong, it is crucial that families visit each one to personally see what is on offer. During the visit, FGE’s counselors will also be there to help with all the intricate details that go with international school applications, while helping to consolidate positive relations between students and the schools. Hands-on Education Foundation Academy believes in a creative and holistic approach to mentoring every child enrolled in its programs which not only hone creative skills but also develop critical thinking. The teachers at the academy will support their students through their academic journey from primary school to university, imparting necessary skills every step of the way.
Students can explore their talents in a variety of unique and interactive courses that will forge their creativity and unleash their potential. For those interested in visual media, there is ‘Filmmaker’ which inspires students to utilize their imagination to create their own short films while gaining hands-on training in various filming techniques. ‘Novelist’ leads students to become proficient writers as they publish their own book through learning the art of characterization and different writing styles. Finally, ‘Orator’ helps students discover the ways to captivate audience with their voices via body, breath, and vocal variety, which culminates in their own audio drama production.

| International Schools Guide 2018 26 ESF students shine with stellar university offers An impressive 15% of ESF leavers enter the top 30 universities in the world in 2017.
Stewart Redden, ESF’s Learning and Teaching Adviser – Post-16, shares with Ambrose Li about the institution’s commitment for academic excellence and diversity. As a provider of world-class education in Hong Kong for over half a century, English Schools Foundation (ESF) has nurtured generations of high- achieving students, as shown by offers from leading universities all over the world and the diversity of disciplines to which students have been admitted. According to Redden, the United Kingdom is the most popular among the 23 destinations ESF leavers go to for university, accounting for 44% of students in 2017, with 13 students gaining Oxbridge (University of Oxford and University of Cambridge) places.
“The affinity for the UK could be attributed to not only traditional links between Hong Kong and the country, but also to the cost and quality of the courses,” he observes. Other popular destinations between 2013 and 2017 include Hong Kong (21%), USA (16%), Canada (11%), and Australia (6%), plus countries such as Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, China, South Korea, India and Switzerland. Redden points out the growing popularity of universities in Hong Kong over the past decade, with the percentage rising from 16% in 2009 to 22% in 2017. Of these students, 73 went to the University of Hong Kong and 53 to the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
Commenting on the subject choices, Redden says there is a good balance. Social Economic Sciences stands out as a top choice with 22% of students studying relevant degrees ranging from Law to Psychology. Business-related courses are also popular among students at 16%. Science and Technology (14%) has gained favor in the past decade, followed by Creative Arts (9%) and Performing Arts (6%). “It is really encouraging to see that balance – which says something about how we prepare students at ESF schools,” Redden says. “We are not only focused on one area, and are enabling access to a wide range of courses at universities.” S u s a n n a C h i u , E S F Communications Manager adds, “We organize a university fair every year for all Year 12 students.
This year, it took place in January with 185 universities and institutions from all over the world participating. It was a great opportunity for students and the institutions to explore and learn more about each other.” To ensure students get as much support as they need in the university application process, each ESF student is assigned a counselor to assist them along the way. All the schools have a well-qualified team of counselors who have close contacts with universities’ admission teams from around the world.
Redden highlights that the counseling team in each school is very involved in listening to students regarding their career aspirations and advising them on which pathways and options during their decision-making processes. “Parents are also welcome to consult counselors on advice for their children,” he adds. “I believe the quality of the educational programs, the teaching and learning that goes on within the schools, as well as the extra-curricular activities we provide, definitely help our students achieve their university goals,” Redden says.
| International Schools Guide 2018 28 Letting Children Lead: Developing Skills for the Next Generation How can young children direct their own learning? Will they not just want to play? These are common questions we hear at Fairchild where we provide an emergent curriculum based on children’s interests and where we make learning through play meaningful, impactful, fun and memorable.
We observe children’s interests, we pose questions, and before we know it, there is room full of children engaging in discussion, asking questions, solving problems, and coming up with ideas. These ideas are the basis for the children’s class projects delivered in the Reggio Emilia inspired approach of learning through play and inquiry.
A t Fairchild, we understand that children are innately curious and when given the space, time and guidance they are able to learn naturally in an authentic and safe environment which allows them to make sense of the world around them. In creating this learning experience, each class is guided by an emergent curriculum where children’s own interests set the “theme” or “topic’” for exploration. Through the emergent curriculum not only are all children’s interests taken into account, but children take ownership of their learning, making decisions from an early age. Children are intrinsically motivated and invested in learning when they have chosen to explore something of interest to them and their authentic experiences make learning memorable and long lasting.
The demands of an ever-changing world, mean that skills required for the next generation are different to those deemed important in the past. Employers now list problem solving, emotional intelligence, critical thinking, creativity and effective communications with people, as critical work skills. It is incumbent now on educators, parents and the community as a whole, to prepare and equip children with the necessary skills for future success. Moving away from the traditional style of teaching where teachers share pre-determined information, and adapting the learning environment, are key factors in preparing the upcoming generations to meet these needs.
Many parents are new to the emergent curriculum concept, relating learning only to their own school experiences. An example of an authentic emergent learning project was when our K1 children, guided by their teacher began a discussion about flying, airplanes and travel. This led to children creating their own airplane from materials in the classroom and they worked together to add details like suitcases, passports, seat belts and tray tables. This project and the many others children initiate at Fairchild are layered with learning, and cross all areas of early childhood learning including emotional, social and physical development, literacy, numeracy, the concept of problem solving, negotiation and collaboration with peers.
By respecting children's choices, we empower them to feel confident and capable in their decision making, which connects and reflects the world they live in. The children at Fairchild have fun, the smiles on their faces are proof of that and all the while, they are learning. For more information about Fairchild and Fairchild’s approach to learning please visit www.fairchild. academy or contact +852 2803 2638 to arrange a visit or free trial class.
31 | International Schools Guide 2018 30 | International Schools Guide 2018 30 | International Schools Guide 2018 31 30 Go green by staying home Revival of the Han dynasty A round-trip flight to Japan by plane spews one tonne of carbon emissions, while the carbon footprint of each Hongkonger is about 13 tonnes per year.
But carbon emissions don’t seem to be factored in traveling costs. Student-run non-profit organization V’air – or vert, which means green in French – is determined to change the new “flash-traveling” trend of going to nearby destinations for a few days by plane.
Instead, the alternative is to encourage local tourism, exploring the glamour of Hong Kong that we might overlook in our daily lives, according to group co-founder Natalie Chung, a third-year student at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. “We are so willing to plan when doing outbound traveling – such as reading through a whole travel guidebook for a trip to Taiwan. But you hardly hear someone saying that I want to stay in Hong Kong,” said Chung. “De-stressing doesn’t necessarily mean one has to get on an air plane.” The idea germinated from Chung’s entry in the Hong Kong Sustainable C a m p u s C o n s o r t i u m C O P 2 1 Challenge contest in conjunction with Arthur Yeung, her senior who also read geography and resource management for his degree.
Their task was, of course, to come up with a solution aimed at reducing emissions, which led to the building of a website promoting local tourism. Winning the competition has since opened a new chapter. V’air was established in 2015, with the aim of changing people’s mindset, from sharing tips on reducing one’s carbon footprint as well as natural sites on the website, to co-organizing local ecological tours with other parties. They also want to build up Hongkongers’ sense of identity. “When you get more and a better understanding of your own place, you are able to discover something different,” Chung said.
“Every time you pass through the same place, it is not merely somewhere that is full of pressure and difficulties.” Some blame the monotonous living environment in the SAR as the reason locals travel a lot. However, that doesn’t mean Hong Kong is a boring place, said activity coordinator Tommy So, a third-year nursing student at CUHK. He believes Hong Kong is a hidden gem with a long history and stories behind the scenes to be told, citing his experience of noticing a milestone in Tai Tam Country Park for an example. It was built in the colonial period – marking how many kilometers from there to the City of Victoria, which today encompasses Central, Wan Chai, Sai Wan, and Sheung Wan.
“Some people stay at home all the time, so they don’t realize Hong Kong has so many fun and beautiful places,” he said. “V’air gives youngsters a good opportunity to become aware of Hong Kong’s attractions.” The team has recently co-authored the Chinese book, Low-Carbon Tours, introducing 39 routes urban and rural areas with ecological knowledge and low carbon tips attached to each route. Although all the routes and spots were discovered during team members’ leisure time, they took six months to walk through the routes again to update photographs and information. “We cross-checked the information and facts quite a few times,” said Nicole Cho, who is reading translation of Chinese literature at the University of Hong Kong.
She proofread the articles every weekend for a month, despite working as an intern on weekdays. However, the underlying real challenge wasn’t in planning routes or writing, but bringing in tailor-made environmental tips to each spot, such as reminding the public not to step on the seaweed when going to Ha Pak Nai, in Yuen Long. “We were kind of lost at the beginning,” Chung said. Starting with a team of three people and expanding to 10, V’air has been participating in competitions and funding schemes. For example, the team won gold in Wu Yee Sun College’s Sunny Passion Programme at CUHK, raising HK$10,000.
Members are looking to turn the organization into a social enterprise to offer paid eco-tours for the pubic. While hong kong parents set much store by English-language learning when it comes to selecting schools, private school Han Academy is going in a different direction. For principal Shirley Su, what distinguishes her academy from other international schools is that hers is a bilingual school that also delves into the Chinese language and culture. For Su – who has taught at Yew Chung International School, one of the top English and international schools in the SAR – there is a problem: children are no longer interested in speaking, or refusing to do so, in Chinese at home with their parents.
“I would like to change this kind of trend, to modify the situation at a very initial stage, and emphasize Chinese language and culture and Chinese identity as our main focus,” she said. Han Academy, founded in late July by Happy Life Education Foundation, offers diversity in Chinese subjects: language and literature, debate, drama and performance, and library course. Students are expected to learn about 280 classics during their time in primary and secondary school. The medium of instruction is Putonghua, with a linear progression to English.
Head of debate curriculum and Chinese teacher Jeff Chen said there is one lesson on debating a week.
He discovered many parents welcome different kinds of lessons, like on debating, as many students have shown improvement after debate training. “We have special extracurricular activities for kids every morning,” Chen said. “They can have some Chinese reading time in the mornings. At noon, they will have Chinese calligraphy writing.” Cantonese is not one of the compulsory subjects, but an option from among extracurricular activities. “We have some teachers with a Hong Kong background to teach students Cantonese, as a kind of choice or a club. But the main medium of instruction for Chinese-language lessons is Putonghua,” Su said.
With reference to successful examples like the Independent Schools Foundation, Su noted that Chinese is more difficult to learn, so building up the foundation from a young age is needed. She said the majority of students in the first cohort, which started the academic year in late September, are mainly from China, and it was difficult to fully immerse them in a total English- speaking environment at first. There are currently 47 students from years one to 11, though years 12 and 13 are also open for admission. About 60 percent of students are born in the mainland, and the rest in Hong Kong.
The normal class size is 12 and 16 students for primary and secondary sections, respectively.
Su said she would like the school to become diverse in future to attract students from both Chinese and western backgrounds, noting that a youngster of mixed German and Chinese parentage has just been admitted. “The students have different values, religious beliefs, cultural background and nationality. But all of them focus on one thing – developing their Chinese- language skills,” Su said. The school is using the Cambridge International curriculum for students from years one to 11. However, for the last two years of study, years 12 and 13 students are free to opt for the curriculum they want to proceed to higher education, such as an A-Level program of development, or the International Baccalaureate Diploma program.
Han Academy is currently located at a rented industrial building in Wong Chuk Hang. Although it has 23,680 square feet space accommodating a maximum of 290 students, Su pointed out it lacks outdoor space, so the school is looking for another campus. Han Academy registered with the Hong Kong Education Bureau last year. Those who purchase the capital bond of HK$3 million per unit, issued by the Happy Life Education Foundation, receives priority for admission for one school place if the student passes the entrance examination.
The annual fee for the primary section, from years one to six, is HK$198,000, rising to HK$208,000 for the secondary section, which involve years seven to 13.
