60th anniversary celebrations

Issue 22: 17/3/2023 Head of School (E. Bonin)

In January of this year, we began unveiling our 60th Anniversary festivities and branding, celebrating the long history of our presence in Hong Kong. In September 1963, a woman of valour and former member of the French Resistance created the first non-religious international school in Hong Kong.

In the 6 intervening decades, FIS has gone from strength to strength, inaugurating several firsts: first international school in Hong Kong to offer Mandarin teaching, first international school in Hong Kong to offer the IB diploma, and many more inaugural initiatives. Today with 4 campuses, 2,500 students, 450 employees and a diverse and engaged community, our school continues to be true to its mission and articles of association. With the input of the Victor Segalen CounciI (CVS), we have concocted a full programme of student-led and community-led events. Those range from Arts events - concert, film, dance, exhibitions, mural, etc.- to the Family Fun Fair in June, all the way to the FIS Gala night in November, not to forget our very first Alumni trophy and a series of alumni gatherings.

It is my great pleasure to share with you a visual where you will find the full FIS 60th Anniversary timeline. I encourage all of you to consider participating in these opportunities, including our June 3rd fair and November 27th gala. I look forward to seeing many of you there.
