Dear Parents,

It has been a busy week at school with a different year group in each day enjoying hands-on learning experiences, teachers planning for engaging learning via Zoom and meeting to plan for the weeks ahead. You can see Mr Panico the scientist in action below with some of his students! In addition, we started this week with both the PTA AGM and the School Council meeting on Monday afternoon.

The PTA AGM related to 2019/20. What a lifetime ago that seems! We were able to celebrate so many aspects of ‘normal learning’ when we looked back on the start of our last academic year. We want to take this opportunity to thank the PTA under the leadership of Saloni Melwani for the continued support of both families and the school.

A number of reports were presented to the School Council regarding Health and Safety, Maths, English and the IB Evaluation. Additionally, we shared an analysis of the mid year reporting data. What was reassuring was the excellent support and professional learning provided to staff to enhance their knowledge and skills and the resultant impact for students, especially in writing. The meeting concluded with ESF representatives meeting with the School Council to share the recruitment process that has been instigated for the principal role commencing in August 2021. I can assure the community that with the strength and knowledge of the SLT and the support of the School Council, ESF will be seeking a professional who can continue to support and lead the wonderful KJS Team and the clear priorities that have been established.


As always please reach out if you have questions or would like to offer feedback @ neill.oreilly@kjs.edu.hk


Kind regards




Neill O’Reilly
