Secondary Learning and Language Support (SEN & EAL)
Hong Kong

Start Date:
January 2023
Region: Far East and South East Asia
School Curriculum: Australian NSW / IB
Experience: 3+ years

The School

Located in Kowloon Tong, this is a non-profit, co- educational day school for students from Reception (4 years of age) to Year 12. Founded in 1995 to fulfil the growing demand for a premier Australian educational institution in Hong Kong, the School today welcomes more than 1,100 students from over 25 different nationalities. Operating on an Australian school year (late January to mid-December), this is the only school in Hong Kong to utilise the Australian curriculum. Primary students study the Australian national curriculum and Years 7-10 students study the NSW Stage 4 and 5 curriculum, with school based examinations and assessments at the end of Year 10. The school offers senior Secondary students (Year 11 and Year 12) the option to undertake either the New South Wales Higher School Certificate (NSW HSC) or the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBDP), creating a seamless transition to all universities in Australia and around the world.

The Wellbeing program complements the school's rigorous academic focus while enabling students to develop personality and character, celebrate excellence, develop confidence, and maintain genuine and meaningful friendships. This is a warm, friendly, happy, caring school. Students love coming to school and staff are very committed, dedicated professionals of the very highest calibre. All staff truly believe in the wellbeing of students and parents are highly engaged and supportive of the school, which is a close knit community representing globally-minded families living in Hong Kong.

Living and Working in Hong Kong

Hong Kong Island itself, with its world-famous skyline, is the canter of this archipelago set in the South China Sea, just off the mainland. Ancient and modern attractions are crammed into Hong Kong Island - Hong Kong Disneyland contrasts with museums displaying the fabulous artefacts of Imperial China, Buddhist temples, vast colonial buildings, and traditional markets. The city is famed for its seafood, Cantonese, and international cuisine, and its amazing shopping opportunities. Soaring Victoria Peak is still a favourite spot for its magnificent views across the iconic harbour to Kowloon.
