Principal’s Message

Dear Families,

We have had some exciting events this week with a few more coming up at KJS.

Don’t forget, the PTA Fair is happening tomorrow. It’s going to be a fun-filled day for all! We hope everyone has a fabulous time with their families and friends.

Also tomorrow, our school’s cross country team will be competing over at Discovery College. Good luck to the team! I’m sure they will do us all proud.

This week, we had the pleasure of welcoming parents from Year 3 into the school for their exhibition. It was a wonderful display showcasing a wide range of work.

Congratulations to Year 5 for winning the Kowloon in Bloom competition! A huge well done to all year groups for making our school look so vibrant and colourful with your floral creations.

We are looking forward to the last week of term and want to express our gratitude to all families for your continued support.

Have a great weekend


Mr Gavin MacGregor

ESF-wide Art Exhibition

ESF is going to hold a student art exhibition in late May to early June. Shortlisted art pieces of each school will be displayed in the art exhibition.

Interested students should submit their art piece to their class teacher on or before 19 April.

Exhibition Details:

ESF Art Exhibition 2024
Art Exhibition Period: 29 May – 2 June 2024 (Grand Opening on 28 May, 6pm – by invitation)
Time: 10am – 7pm (29 May – 1 June), 10am – 4pm (2 June)
Venue: Exhibition Hall, Hong Kong City Hall, 5 Edinburgh Place, Central, Hong Kong
Fee: Free admission, open to public

Artwork Theme: Faster, Higher, Stronger

The Paris Olympics are almost upon us. Every four years, athletes from every country, from all walks of life and of all faiths and none come together to celebrate the remarkable nature of humanity. The Olympic podium is the highest point in sport, but those three medals do not represent the totality of the spirit that guides the Games, nor do they tell the story of the sacrifice, hard work and dedication of every participant.

This year, our ESF art exhibition is all about humans and their extraordinary power to achieve. Every single day, people in our schools, in our homes and in our communities are doing remarkable things and this is what we seek to celebrate in this show.

This need not just be about the people who have achieved something headline grabbing. It can also be about the people who do things to help us, to make our lives better and to support us in what we do. Who are the change makers? Who goes above and beyond for us? Who, in our lives, is dedicated to being faster, higher and stronger in the service of others? These are the people we seek to shine a light on.

Points to note for submission-

1) We accept drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, pixel art, digital art or photography that is relevant to the art exhibition theme.

2) Parent permission and consent should be granted for the child’s art piece image or video and any information about the art piece, including name, school year and school name, to be shown publicly.

3) The art piece must be the student’s original work without infringing any intellectual property rights

4) Each submission confirms that they consent to the use of the personal data for this art exhibition, such use to be in accordance with ESF’s Personal Data Handling Policy and its related Personal Information Collection Statements (“PICS”). A copy of the PICS can be found on the ESF website (www.esf.edu.hk).

5)  All images or videos and other information of art pieces collected may be disclosed to third parties, including external service providers or website developers, for this art exhibition.

ESF Centre reserves the right to remove any sensitive content or art pieces that might potentially violate the law. When submitting art pieces, please be considerate of others and be sensitive to the content depicted.

Shortlisted art pieces will be returned to students after the exhibition.

Student Success

Thank you for sharing your child’s achievements with us over the past year.

While individual achievements are undoubtedly significant and provide a source of pride for both the student and their family, sharing every student’s accomplishments on our social media channels is no longer feasible. Our intention is to create an inclusive environment where all students, regardless of their individual accomplishments, feel valued and celebrated.

That being said, we encourage you to share your child’s achievements with their teacher and peers, as well as within your personal social media networks. This way, your child’s accomplishments can be recognized and celebrated by those who know them best.

We appreciate your understanding and support as we continue to navigate the post-pandemic educational landscape. Our school community’s strength lies in our collective efforts to celebrate the diverse talents, achievements, and experiences of all our students.
