HOUSE SYSTEM

All pupils at Nord Anglia International School, Hong Kong are members of a House which runs vertically throughout the Primary and Secondary years. Our aim is to make each House a focal point for competitions, cross-peer group support and to build an ethos that allows pupils to contribute to the success of the community and develop leadership skills.

All pupils will attend House assemblies and take part in House competitions. Our aim is to create a community that will span all year groups at the school and indeed, help with the transition from Year 6 to 7.

 

Our Houses are named after historic castles in the UK:

House Name

House Colour

Balmoral

Blue

Caernarfon

Green

Sandringham

Yellow

Windsor

Red

 

We will inform all parents and pupils of their House at the start of term.

 

OCTOPUS CARDS

Thank you to all of those who have already sent in photos for the Octopus cards. As the MTR has quite strict requirements in terms of the size and resolution of the photos it will accept for the cards, we have decided it will be more efficient (and easier for our parents) for a professional

photographer to take photos of all the children during their orientation sessions in August.  This will facilitate the process by ensuring that we meet the MTR specifications. We will have alternative pupil registration procedures in place pending receipt of the Octopus cards from MTR.

 

BUILDING PROGRESS

All of the classrooms and teaching facilities are looking good and will be ready for use. Each classroom has an Interactive Whiteboard, projector and age-specific resources. As you know, each class will have a maximum of 22 pupils, with a Class Teacher, Teaching and Learning Assistant and support from the Additional Support Needs Department, where appropriate.

As a result of permissions and licensing, the swimming pool will not be available for use for the first year. We are adding other facilities and resources and I will keep you informed about these developments.

 

I look forward to seeing you on the orientation days. Enjoy your summer.

 

Best wishes,

Brian D. Cooklin

Principal
