Lower School

This is my first year as CDNIS Lower School Principal. I am very excited to be here, working alongside such professional and enthusiastic colleagues and supportive parents, to provide the very best education for the students in our care.

The success of any school begins with a focus on well being, ensuring that the whole community is built upon a foundation of trust, support and caring. From this foundation, we are able to create the right environment for inquiry-based learning; to inspire excellence, cultivate personal growth and character and empower student engagement. Learning should be stimulating and challenging, providing opportunities for students to discover what they are good at, both inside and outside the classroom. What I see at CDNIS is genuine warmth and a desire to provide the best for each and every student through exceptional pastoral care and learning of the highest quality. I also see an appetite for continuous improvement, helping to ensure that CDNIS remains at the cutting edge of educational innovation within Hong Kong, the region and worldwide. This is an exciting and fun place to come to school and to work.

I am sure you will enjoy browsing the dedicated Lower School website. It demonstrates well the palpable energy and enthusiasm we have on campus, and provides important information about many aspects of school life. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need to know more or have any concerns. My door is always open.
