Parent seminars to find out more about ESF Island School

Posted on 8th Jan 2018 in School News, Hong Kong

Opened in 1967, ESF Island School is one of the founding schools of the English Schools Foundation. The school has a very distinctive approach to teaching and learning which has generated outstanding success over the decades. Its focus is on igniting a passion for learning in every student, to encourage students to become resourceful, adaptable and confident learners.

The 50-year-old ESF Island School is currently undergoing a major redevelopment. While the site on Borrett Road is being redeveloped, the school has moved to two temporary school sites in Sha Tin starting from this year.

The school is now open to applications from secondary-aged students to join in the 2017/18 and 2018/19 academic years. To help prospective parents better understand Island School’s curriculum and educational philosophy, two seminars will be held on Tuesday, 23 January 2018 and Thursday, 1 March 2018, at one of its temporary campuses in Sha Tin Wai.

During the seminars, Stephen Loggie, Principal of ESF Island School, will shed light on the latest redevelopment plan, as well as ESF’s curriculum and educational philosophy. ESF Admissions Manager Julie Wong will talk about the admissions criteria and procedures.

Details of the two seminars are as follows.
