Happy Birthday to AISHK! Australian International School Hong Kong, a non-profit foundation, was incorporated on 26 January 1995, coinciding with the date of Australia Day.
The first day of school, which was then located at 121 Boundary St Kowloon Tong, welcomed 25 students from Reception to Year 12. Fast forward to today and we are continuing to flourish as a leading international school welcoming some 1,100 student from 25 different nationalities.
As we celebrate our 27th anniversary, we reflect on what has helped shaped who we are today. It’s the collaborative community spirit driven by the students, parents, staff, Board, alumni and our many supporters including sporting stars, authors, musicians and parliamentarians. It’s our unique Australian identity which incorporates Australian culture and values with the rich culture of our international setting in Hong Kong. It’s our belief in providing a global education where students are provided opportunities to be culturally sensitive, resilient yet respectful of others, kind and empathetic, humble and committed to serving and making a difference.
At the core of our story, it’s been the dedicated and visionary people, the outstanding achievements of individuals and the school, as well as the memorable celebrations and community events that have made AISHK a vibrant and nurturing place for learning, play and connection since 1995.
To take a more leisurely walk down memory lane with AISHK, you might wish to view our recent 25th Anniversary Film – Celebrating 25 Years of AISHK: Who We are Today. In 2020, we sough the commitment of students, staff, alumni, AISFL Board, parents and the broader international community in Hong Kong to create this visual feast of footage, hand-picked from our school’s history. Be sure to prepare a cosy drink, sit back, and enjoy this film which celebrates who we are today as a School.
