Celebrating 50 Years of Island School

Dear Parents, Teachers and Islanders (past and present)

To mark 50 years of Island School we have some special events planned to celebrate. We would like to invite all of the Island School community to join us.

Get your team together for an evening of quizzing (mixed age groups an advantage no more than ten to a team). More information coming soon.

Island Five-0, Arts Festival, 3 December 2016

The long standing Island School traditional Winter Fair takes on a new look this year with an Arts Festival. There will be musical performances from: students, teachers and alumni across two stages, with art exhibitions, film showings and all sorts of theatre goings-on all round the school. There will be activities to inspire your inner thespian or artist, plus a wide selection of international food on offer. If you are interested in performing, or in having a goods and/or services display space, please contact Julian Reed at julian.reed@online.island.edu.hk


The Gala Weekend 9-11 June 2017

This weekend of celebrations will be the culmination of the year. There will be three principal events.

9 June- Friday evening. Drinks and party at Island School. We hope to see as many members of the community as possible back in the school, for possibly the last time, for a relaxed casual celebration. There may be the opportunity to take away some special souvenirs of  the buildings that have been known and loved over the decades. Tickets for this will be available nearer the time, but we will have no limit on numbers.

10 June – Saturday evening.  Gala Dinner, Grand Hyatt. At this black-tie event all the former principals:  Jonty Driver, Colin Niven, David James and Michelle Hughes, will join me in leading the celebrations. Tickets for this event will go on sale in the next few weeks. Demand for tickets is high so book your tickets early to avoid disappointment.

11 June -Sunday Brunch. Taking place in a number of venues around Hong Kong, locations will be published nearer the time. You will be able to sign up for a particular location.

We are looking forward to seeing you at some, or all, of these events. This promises to be a 50th year of celebrations to remember.
