Message from Principal, 23 Jan 2020

For over 50 years, the Head Students at Island School have played an integral role in shaping our school to ensure that the student experience is of the highest quality.

For this reason, the annual selection process is exhaustive and includes application, feedback from teachers and student leaders, evaluation from Senior Heads of House and a final interview.

As the Chair of this process, I wish I could share with you the applications and interviews. The standard was exceptional and the students put forward their candidacy with passion and humility. They also skillfully shared their significant leadership track records for leading projects which have made their school and Hong Kong better for us all.

It is with great pleasure that I inform you that the Head Students for 2020-2021 are:

  • Rachel Handley (Rutherford)
  • Jaime Lam (Da Vinci)
  • Gloria Leung (Einstein)
  • Gobind Thind (Nansen)

I would like to acknowledge the tremendous contribution of the outgoing Head Students, Natasha Mather (Einstein), Daanyal Ebrahim (Da Vinci), Garbo Ting (Fleming) and Kaven Wijeyekoon (Flemming), they have been a constant source of inspiration to the student body.

It is also important to recognize the following students who were shortlisted and interviewed for these posts:

  • Nicole Khaimson (12E)
  • Ka Chun Lai (12R)
  • Ruaidhri Neville (12W)
  • Vinay Shah (12F)
  • Madura Tilve (12F)

All of the shortlisted candidates are wonderful leaders in their own right and will be integral to our success in the year that lies ahead.

I wish you all a happy and prosperous Year of the Rat and I am sure I speak for all my colleagues when I say that we look forward to all that it holds.
