Heavy demolition works started on Borrett Road on the 19 June 2019. This is the first major step of the school’s redevelopment project which will see a new state of the art school open in 2022/23 school year.
Speaking about the start of the demolition work, Principal Stephen Loggie said, “This is a landmark day for our school community and for ESF. The project has been many years in the making – so for us to reach this important milestone is of real significance for the current students as well as the generations who have preceded them. We cannot wait to get back to Borrett Road.”
Belinda Greer, CEO of ESF said, “Today is a big step forward in achieving our goal of delivering a brand new, state of the art school for Hong Kong. Island School is one of our oldest and best known schools, but the work that starts today is not about demolishing the past, it is about building a new future.”
Michael Lok, Chairman of the School Council added, “This will prove to be one of the most significant milestones in the history of Island School, and many people have put in a lot of hard work to make this happen. We are immensely grateful for the continuous support from everyone in the ESF and Island School community.”
