Message from Chairman Of Board of Directors

KIS’s origin can be traced back to Saturday School, started in 1960 with just 6 students to provide for the needs of Korean community in Hong Kong. An increasingly larger community’s needs and support from Korean government was instrumental in securing and establishing KIS at Sai Wan Ho and today, we are indeed proud to serve KIS which not only cater for Korean community’s needs, but also welcome an international body of students from over 25 countries.

Full stream Korean Section and International School have grown over the years, and whilst KIS suffered ups and downs with the fortune of Hong Kong itself, we are now on firm grounds to continue to grow with completion in 2013 of second extension to existing buildings that will allow us to offer more classrooms and facilities to meet increasing demand for international education.

We believe firmly in providing a secure and stable environment in which students from all backgrounds can grow, work and play together while in Hong Kong, so that they can go anywhere in the world with full confidence. We hope that the special environment at KIS, where two curriculums coexist side by side, whilst challenging, will provide extra stimulation and motivation.

From its very beginning, KIS was served by Korean community representatives led by Chairman of Korean Residents’ Association serving concurrently as Chairman of Board of Directors of KIS, and this unbroken chain of service has been crucial in supporting KIS over the years to what we are today.

We are grateful to HK government for giving us the opportunity to provide international education in HK, as well as Korean government for their continuing support. We would also like to thank all members of KIS community, from students, parents, teachers and staff, as well as leading Korean community representatives for steadfast support over the years, and look forward to working with all for many more years to come.
