New Families

Welcome New Parents!

On behalf of the Parent Faculty Organization (PFO), I’d like to extend a warm welcome to those of you who are new to HKIS and in many cases, new to Hong Kong.

You'll find the HKIS Dragonnet website to be a very important resource for you in terms of answering many questions you may have about HKIS. On Dragonnet, you will find information about after-school activities, the school calendar, special events, Dragon Shop hours, different organizations you can get involved with, homework assignments, etc., and here we've created a quick reference for you.

We hope you will check it often, as we will be updating this page as new events are created prior to the start of school and into the beginning of the school year.

We trust you will have a very rewarding experience at HKIS!

Warm Regards,

Beth McNicholas

New to Hong Kong?

There are many outstanding organizations outside of the PFO and HKIS to help you and your family integrate to Hong Kong life. Here are just a few that we've found helpful.

American Women's Association
The American Women's Association of Hong Kong (AWA) is a non-profit, charitable organization. Membership in the AWA is open to all women who reside in Hong Kong, regardless of nationality.

YWCA
All Hong Kong residents can become a member of the YWCA. After joining, you can participate in diversified activities, classes, fitness, and enjoy special discounts and offers at many selected merchants.

Hong Kong Tourism Board
A great resource for finding events and things to see and do in Hong Kong.


Church of All Nations

Church of All Nations (CAN)
CAN is a term that most Lower + Upper Primary families hear a lot as this is a typical meeting point for students and families. But the Church of All Nations is a Christian congregation with Lutheran heritage that unites people of diverse backgrounds by sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ, growing in faith and nurturing each other for life and service. CAN is located on the southern part of the Hong Kong Island in Repulse Bay, where it shares its grounds with the Lower and Upper Primary campuses of HKIS.
