Both our Pok Fu Lam and Kowloon Bay Preparatory Schools aim to provide our children with the perfect learning environment in which they can enjoy and embrace school life.
From Reception through to Year 6, our Prep children are afforded a huge range of opportunities for learning, adventure and growth, whether it be through our extra-curricular activities, their first over-night camp in Year 3, or the hugely enjoyable and transformative Year 5 trip to Beijing. On top of this, the regular concerts, class assemblies, sports competitions and public performances that are scattered throughout the year, help to instill our Prep children with an unwavering confidence in themselves.
Our Prep Curriculum draws heavily upon the local environment that our children find themselves in. Looking beyond Kellett to the outside world, our children are able to gain an understanding of themselves and their responsibilities within the global community. Students study foreign languages all throughout Prep School, with Mandarin being studied from Reception and French being offered as an option from Year 3.
Congratulations to our two Prep Heads, Ms Jo Laufer (KLB Prep) and Mr Ben Dixon (PFL Prep) on being the first Head Teachers in Hong Kong to be awarded IAPS Membership!
Both Prep Heads have been awarded membership to the prestigious Independent Association of Preparatory Schools (IAPS), reflecting their outstanding leadership and the quality of education provided.
Principal Ann McDonald commented, “I am delighted to be able to announce our membership of IAPS which recognises excellence in education in prep schools. It is testament to our fantastic prep heads, Jo Laufer at Kowloon Bay and Ben Dixon at Pok Fu Lam, and the incredible teams that support them.”
Established in 1892, IAPS has over 620 members who share best practice, undertake professional development and network. To become a member, schools need to be accredited by an approved government inspectorate and meet exacting standards.
