King's Participates in Pilot Teacher Exchange Programme
King’s has been involved in a pilot scheme for Teachers Overseas Attachment Programme. Initiated and sponsored by Mr Victor Chu OA and operated by The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups (HKFYG), the programme aims to further enhance the professionalism of Hong Kong secondary school teachers through an attachment program in some renowned boarding secondary schools overseas.
During the Summer Term, the school was joined by Stephen Wong from Wai
Kiu College, and Joyce Wong
Ho Yan from HKFYG Lee Shau Kee
College. Working alongside Ben Greedy in the chemistry
department and Imogen Pardoe in the biology department, both teachers gained a
practical insight into education practices in the UK.
Both Stephen and Joyce enjoyed their
time at King’s immensely.
Joyce said: “Thank you so much for taking
me as a visiting teacher in King’s College.
I must say I had a very good time working with King’s staff. King’s organized many wonderful activities, eg the The trip to Big Bang Fair, the trip to Lyme Regis, the Languages Soirée, Football Marathon…etc., which give me many memories of school life. It has been an incredible experience for me learning about the UK’s teaching style and I liked the way that King’s teachers inspire every student. During these ten weeks, I learnt a lot from King’s insightful and funny lessons. Thanks once again!”
Stephen added: “I would like to express my thanks for all the great opportunities I
have had at King’s over the last 10 weeks.
I have enjoyed every part of it and I am happy to say that I have grown
personally and professionally. The balanced curriculum at King’s which puts
emphasis on both academic pursuits and a healthy lifestyle nurtures students to
be confident and presentable. I am grateful for having the chance to work in
such a wonderful environment. Best wishes to each of you on your current and
It was a pleasure having Joyce and
Stephen with us this term and we wish them all the best for
