We regularly work with a number of partners so that we can provide our students and community with the very best.
The public health crisis caused by COVID-19 required the FIS community to implement certain measures as part of their duty to the wider community. But this difficult time has also inspired a sense of solidarity.
The French International School of Hong Kong has been honoured to receive gracious help from the following institutions and partners, who either donated masks, or provided substantial help with sourcing them. Thanks to them, we have secured sufficient stock of spare masks for students and staff. We would like to sincerely thank our partners for their unsolicited gesture of solidarity and generosity.
Located right in the heart of Tseung Kwan O lies the TKO campus, the most recent of our four campuses, which welcomed its first students in September 2018. We would like to thank those that sponsored the construction of the TKO campus. It is thanks to their support that we were able to complete this large-scale, award-winning project:
The Banque Transatlantique is a private international bank and part of the Crédit Mutuel CIC group. The bank supports many FIS projects and events, including the Tseung Kwan O campus and its inaugural events: the time capsule ceremony and the unveiling of the Mother of Water artwork.
