The first School in Hong Kong to collaborate

We are the first Italian School opening in Hong Kong, and cooperating directly with Reggio Children, the well-known Italian educational institution, whose preschool was cited in 1991 by the American “Newsweek” magazine as the most advanced in the world for early childhood education. Nowadays, Reggio Children is inspiring schools in more than 140 countries.

The Italian International Kindergarten is open for the school year 2019/2020. The kindergarten premises can welcome up to 200 pupils and will offer two curricula, “Italian-English, plus Chinese language and culture” and “Chinese-English plus Italian language and culture“, both with half and whole-day options.

The founders of this school have been supporting and successfully managing the Accredited Italian Embassy Kindergarten and Primary School in Beijing since the time of its establishment in 2015 (www.scuolapechino.com). They have entrusted the same pedagogical team of Beijing to organize and supervise the establishment of this school, which is aimed at meeting the demand of an advanced international education of both the Italian & Hong Kong foreign community and, obviously, of the large Chinese local community.

This morning, the teachers attended a storytelling workshop: “Fostering Children's Language Development through Storytelling" by Ms. Sanchia Chow, a renowned lecturer of the Hong Kong Baptist University. It was hosted by the Educational Publishing House who also launched their new reader series: Wonder Tales. The Italian International Kindergarten uses the new Wonder Tales series to cultivate a love of reading and imagination. The teachers got some inspiration to incorporate into the current curriculum to enhance students' ability to express themselves in English and allow stories to be a wonderful journey of discovery, colour and most importantly, fun.

今天早上,老師出席了由教育出版社所舉辦,講者為香港浸會大學的周清琛女士的故事工作坊-「由說故事來促進兒童語言發展」,進一步提升說講故事的技巧。現時本校也採用Wonder Tales新系列來提升學生的語言能力,當中老師們學習到一些運用此系列的竅門,配合現時課程,以加強學生在英語表達能力。

Questa mattina i nostri insegnanti hanno partecipato ad un seminario sulla "promozione e sviluppo del linguaggio dei bambini attraverso la lettura di storie", tenuto da Sanchia Chow della Batpist University presso l'Educational Publishing House. In questa occasione e’ stata anche lanciata la nuova serie di racconti fantastici (“Wonder Tales”), di cui abbiamo gran numero nella libreria della ns. scuola.
Per gli insegnanti e’ stata tra l’altro una bella opportunita’ per apprendere come coinvolgere i bambini durante la narrazione delle storie e condurli in un fantasioso , colorito e divertente viaggio che li arricchisca di nuove scoperte.

Today we had our first fire drill at the IIKG! The children followed the instructions very attentively, walking out of the classrooms and covering their nose and mouth! They were great and understood the reasons behind the practice of fire drills. After the procedure was completed we watched a video detailing all the necessary steps in case of a fire emergency to help the children remember them for the future.

About Reggio Children

The Reggio Emilia Approach is an educational philosophy originated in Italy, in the city of Reggio Emilia, by Loris Malaguzzi, himself an educator, a psychologist, and a philosopher.

The Reggio Approach is based on the image of the child, and of human beings, as possessing strong potentials for development and as a subject of rights who learns and grows in the relationships with others.

Distinctive characteristics are the participation of families, the collegial work of all the personnel, the importance of the educational environment, the presence of the atelier and the figure of the atelierista, the in-school kitchen, and the pedagogical coordinating team.
