CDNIS has always drawn on the strength of its Canadian and Chinese foundations to create a unique learning environment in Hong Kong. We are forging ahead in providing the most relevant and inspiring education for our students in an interconnected, changing world. Following a rigorous self-assessment process, we are proud to present a shared vision for Canadian International School of Hong Kong, to our community in the coming months.
Our community of stakeholders developed this plan together, building our school’s core educational mission and objectives. This strategy affirms a path on which Canadian International School of Hong Kong has already embarked and which identifies what we need to do to remain the best school we can for years to come.
CDNIS is committed to ensuring its facilities are conducive to the teaching of 21st century skills. Classrooms with adequate space to reconfigure seating arrangements is particularly relevant as it facilitates the use of different teaching methods that are aligned to 21st century skills, ensuring students can work in teams, problem solve, and communicate effectively.
Following the addition of the new Lower School Science and Innovation Lab and Upper School Science Corridor, we are excited to announce two new projects that will open in August 2019. Architectural renderings of both projects will be shared soon.
Early Years Environment
Our new Reggio Emilia inspired Early Years Environment (EYE) will open in August 2019. Architects are currently working on a complete redesign of the classrooms on the 9/F. This flexible classroom space will be for our 3- and 4-year old students in Pre Reception and Reception
21st Century Learning Space (name TBC)
Planning is also underway for an innovative redesign of the 10/F Library into a new 21st Century Learning Space (name TBC). This space will provide a learning environment for students who are passionate about science, mathematics, engineering and technology, allowing them to work individually or collaboratively on entrepreneurial, STEM, STEAM, Coding, Robotics and Design Thinking projects. The project will be completed ahead of the 2019/2020 school year.
