We will need a deposit of $4000, to secure their place on the trip, made payable to ‘Korean International School’. Each individual trip varies in price according to location and activities.

As an International School, in the world city of Hong Kong, we strongly encourage you to support your child’s education by giving them experiences like this overseas trip. They are the highlight of the year and offer a great deal of benefits including, but not limited to:
Student bonding, broadens horizons, improves social and communication skills and increases confidence are some of the benefits of joining an overseas trip.

However, if, for any reason, you do not want your son/daughter to participate on an overseas trip, please email Mr. Spence at You can help me understand your thoughts a bit better as to why you would not want your son/daughter on a trip.
