Opening the doors of our brand-new Wycombe Abbey School Hong Kong to pupils for the first school day on September 5, 2019.
We will be increasing significantly in terms of pupil numbers, from Year 1 upwards. We will be opening new rooms and introducing new specialist subject teachers in all sorts of curriculum areas. We also intend applying to raise the limits of our upper age-group to include Year 8, (13+).
In order to continue to serve the needs of Hong Kong children, schools are going to have to be open to change and adaptation. At the Primary level I think these changes will be most apparent in: our developing use of technology in our schools; and assisting our primary-aged pupils to develop an increased level of self-reliance and personal resilience.
Finally, I foresee a significant Primary curriculum development and intensity of focus, in terms of teaching time and resources, directed at teaching about world-wide ecological and climate issues.
Getting our authorisation for the IB PYP.
We are starting our Early Years section for K1, K2 & K3.
I think there will be more emphasis on play and individualised learning, and less emphasis on testing and grading.
