Dear Parents, Guardians, and KIS Community,

As the cold winter months fade away, we joyfully welcome the start of the summer term with open arms! The sun shines brightly, ushering in a season of new beginnings, fresh opportunities, and the promise of adventure.

To our hardworking Years 11-13 students, we extend our heartfelt best wishes as you embark on your crucial Study Leave. We know the road ahead may be challenging, but we have the utmost faith in your abilities. Your unwavering dedication and perseverance will undoubtedly pay off, and we eagerly look forward to celebrating your well-deserved successes in the upcoming exams.

Speaking of celebrations, the highly anticipated NXD performance on Friday 19 April 2024 was a resounding success. These talented young men captivated the audience with their electrifying energy and showcased their exceptional skills, forging unforgettable memories for all in attendance. We wish NXD continued success as they move forward, and we look forward to seeing what they accomplish next.

Autism Awareness & Acceptance Week

On Thursday 18 April 2024, we hosted an engaging Autism Awareness Assembly filled with inspiring stories and activities to increase acceptance and understanding about autism. We also had a “Wear Blue on Blue Dress Down Day” where students and staff came dressed in their best shades of blue, with donations going to support the Love 21 Foundation.

In conjunction with Autism Awareness Week, we’re excited to announce the winners of the t-shirt design competition for our primary students – their creativity during the Easter break was truly impressive!

Year 3 Speed Ball

The Year 3 students ignited the field on Thursday 25 April 2024 with their skills and competitive spirit during a nail-biting Speedball Tournament between the Primary House Teams.

Speedball combines elements of basketball and football, making for a fast-paced, high-scoring game that had everyone on the edge of their seats. The students played with incredible passion and teamwork, representing their houses with pride.

Huge congratulations to all the players for their amazing effort and sportsmanship. Events like these are a great way for our students to stay active, have fun, and build not only House but community spirit.

It was an exciting and enriching experience that encouraged our young learners to explore their imaginations.

We’re grateful to the African Hong Kong Center for sharing their talents and inspiring our students!
