Head of School's Welcome

Thank you for taking the time to get to know Australian International School Hong Kong (AISHK).

I was lucky enough to join AISHK in January 2018 as Head of School and it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made.  

AISHK provides the best of both worlds. 

Undeniably Australian in culture and feel, AISHK is also a truly international community, catering to 1,100 students from over 25 different nationalities. Founded in 1995, AISHK is a non-profit, co-educational day school for students from Reception (4 years of age) to Year 12.

Operating on an Australian school year (late January to mid-December), AISHK is the only school in Hong Kong to utilise the Australian curriculum, with the option for senior students to undertake either the New South Wales Higher School Certificate (NSW HSC) or the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBDP). Offering both an Australian and international curriculum, AISHK allows students to easily transition to and from Australia and around the world as confident and global minded young people.

With outstanding results achieved by students in both HSC and IBDP, the school is also highly dedicated to providing a learning environment which truly balances academic excellence and student wellbeing. 

AISHK is a very warm, friendly, happy and caring school. Our students love coming to school and are some of the most well-behaved students I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Our staff are very committed, dedicated professionals of the very highest calibre, who truly believe in the wellbeing of the students. 

Parents are highly engaged and supportive of our school. AISHK is truly a community school representing Australians and internationally mobile families living in Hong Kong. 

For many students and their families, facing the prospect of relocation or changing schools can be daunting and sometimes stressful. However, by choosing AISHK, I assure you that much of this concern will be alleviated. I hope you have time to explore virtually, contact us or visit in person and see our wonderful school in action.    

I look forward to welcoming you to our community.
