It is an absolute pleasure to welcome you to Kowloon Junior School for the 2017/18 year.  What an exciting learning environment for your children to be in. A school where ‘Success for every child’ is at the heart of what drives the school and motivates staff and the community.  KJS is about success in academics, in the arts, in sports, in community involvement, in students personal lives and in due course, responsible action in our local, national and international communities.

Our school has a strong and proud history. We intend to build upon this to ensure that our children are part of an exciting and positive future. The International Baccalaureate Primary Year Programme (PYP) provides an immensely strong foundation to set our children up for success not only at KJS but also through to KGV and beyond.  We partner with our families to ensure our students have the best possible learning environment to promote well-being, collaboration and excellence. The learning experiences provided through the PYP programme at KJS will assist your child to view mistakes as learning opportunities and encourage creative and innovative thinking in a respectful learning environment.

I come to KJS with a passion for creating learning environments characterised by intellectual stimulation, motivated learners, exceptional teaching and happy and inspired students. During the 2017/18 year I look forward to partnering with families and staff to make KJS an exemplar of quality teaching and learning in Hong Kong. My experiences in New Zealand and my research internationally give me the confidence we can achieve outstanding results and have a huge amount of fun at KJS.

As technology and the world change in the years ahead we will quickly realise we are heading into the most exciting and dynamic era in history. At KJS our commitment will be to ensure ‘Success for every child’ means doing all we can to prepare our students to succeed in the future and holding high expectations of ourselves. Our membership in the English Schools Foundation (ESF) ensures we can draw on the collective wisdom of a learning community and create strong and successful pathways of learning for our children from Kindergarten through to their graduation from High School.

Please contact us if you would like to see KJS in action or if you would like to meet with me.

Kind Regards
