2018 East Coast Reunions 


On Friday, November 2, 2018, I had the pleasure of hosting the New York City alumni reunion. The gathering took place at Banc Café which provided a cozy spot for alums to catch up with old friends and classmates. We had a good group attend from the classes of 2011 and 1999. The next stop was Boston on November 8, 2018, where we had a fun gathering at a lively pub in the Back Bay and thanks to the Class of 2014 alums for turning up in good numbers. The last stop was Washington D.C. and we gathered for a delicious lunch at The Pig, a local hotspot near downtown, on Saturday, November 10. It was great to meet so many new alums and to see familiar faces too.

Thanks to everyone for attending our reunions and I hope to see you again next year!

Alumni Lower Primary School Event

We recently had the privilege of hosting more than 100 alumni and their families at our new Lower Primary School in Repulse Bay. Dr. Ron Roukema, Interim Head of School, Vicky Seehafer, Director of Admissions, and Maziar Sabet, Chief Advancement Officer, were on hand to meet and greet alumni and talk about the highlights of the latest addition to HKIS. When the evening came to a close alumni left with the feeling that HKIS continues to be the gold standard in international education in Hong Kong.
