An Island School education goes far beyond the standard sit down classes and exams. Island School’s unique and innovative curriculum involves students in authentic interactions with professional life in Hong Kong. They consult with local architects, bankers, entrepreneurs, lawyers, and a wide variety of professionals. All of these enriching experiences involve trips, visits and research away from school, or practitioners and professionals visiting the school. Such activities are key components of the transformational education that the school strives to provide for its students.
Why we need the Spirit Fund
The current unprecedented variety of courses available to students allows them to steer their path towards discovering and developing their personal strengths and goals. The need for resources to sustain this practice cannot be underestimated.
The income that is derived from tuition does not meet the resource requirements to provide the service. There is an inherent need for philanthropy in education, Island School needs your help to achieve excellence in transformative education right now.
Your gift to this inaugural year for the IS Spirit Fund will support the following four priority areas: 1) Out of classroom programmes;
2) Engagement with visiting professionals and practitioners;
3) Support for all students to have equal access to a host of educational opportunities; and,
4) Through the Island School Trust, scholarship funds for students in financial need.
