Grand Opening - CHECK THE PICTURES
FIRST ITALIAN SCHOOL
IN HONG KONG
REGGIO EMILIA APPROACH
Cooperating directly with Reggio Children

The first School in Hong Kong to collaborate
directly with Reggio Children

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 Nursery & 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.

Recently, our school held a Nature-themed birthday party to celebrate all of the students born in June and July. The Reggio Approach attaches great importance to the relationship between children and nature. Therefore, the teachers prepared a lot of fun games related to this theme. By watching a short film, children were able to observe how nature and humans are closely related. Living life in an environmentally-friendly way, protecting nature and raising children with environmental awareness is very important to our school. In response to the epidemic, we have changed how we celebrate our birthday parties.
The birthday boys and girls prepared a fresh fruit cake, which they took home to share with their families, while the rest of the children made their own banana cupcakes. All the children seemed to enjoy the party very much!

我們舉行了復課後的生日會,慶祝6月和7月出生的高班學生。派對的主題是「大自然」,瑞吉歐教育很重視孩子與大自然的關係,故此老師準備了很多與大自然有關的遊戲,透過短片讓孩子們明白大自然與人類息息相關,最後更了解到實踐綠色生活如可保護大自然的重要性,向孩子們灌輸正確的環保意識。因應疫情關係,亦有改我們一向的生日會慶祝模式,是次生日的孩子負責製作水果蛋糕帶回家與家人分享,而所有孩子均可製作屬於自己的香蕉小蛋糕 ,看到他們滿足而投入的表情,可見他們十分享受當中的樂趣。

Recentemente, la nostra scuola ha organizzato una festa a tema “Natura” per festeggiare il compleanno di tutti gli alunni nati nei mesi di giugno e luglio. Il rapporto tra bambini e natura è uno dei tempi più rilevanti all’interno della filosofia educativa del Reggio Approach e, in questa occasione, gli insegnanti hanno preparato molti giochi divertenti dedicati ad esso. Grazie ad un breve film, i bambini hanno osservato come la natura e la vita degli esseri umani siano strettamente legati. Vivere in modo ecologico, proteggere la natura e crescere bambini rispettosi e consapevoli dell’ambiente è molto importante per la nostra scuola.
Tenendo conto dell’epidemia abbiamo inoltre cambiato la modalità in cui vengono celebrati i compleanni: i festeggiati hanno preparato una torta di frutta fresca da portare a casa e da condividere con tutta la famiglia, mentre i compagni di classe hanno preparato dei deliziosi cupcake alla banana. I bimbi si sono divertiti molto assieme!

Our school believes that the child's knowledge is constructed from the child's life experiences, this is why our school arranges a variety of outdoor activities to enhance and support the child’s learning. This week, our children took a trip to the Handing College to have an insight of their new primary school life. During the visit, the high school students are led by the teachers in showing us around Handing College in Wong Chuk Hang Station. Throughout this visit, the children inspected their surroundings of the primary school and found that the building was particularly large, as well as having many classrooms with different activities! The children found that the equipment that was used inside the classroom was very exciting and they were very curious to find out more about them. Towards the end of the trip there was a Q&A session, the children asked questions with much confidence and felt more at ease as they look forward to their new start in primary school. I would like to thank the teachers and the students of Handing College for their warm hospitality.

本校相信孩子的知識是由孩子的生活經驗建構而來的,所以本校安排了多元化的戶外體驗活動來支援學生的學習。本週高班學生由老師帶領下前往及參觀位於黃竹坑的漢鼎書院,了解和感受小學的生活。透過是次參觀,孩子在漢鼎書院的老師及學生帶領下,實地考察小學的環境,他們發現原來小學校舍是很大的,當中更有很多不同功能的課室!孩子們對實驗室和美術室的設備,尤其顯得好奇及興奮。最後在問答環節中,孩子們都踴躍發問,並期待小學生涯的來臨,真的感謝漢鼎書院師生的熱情款待。

La nostra scuola ritiene che i bambini imparino a conoscere il mondo attraverso esperienze di vita diretta. Per questo motivo, organizziamo spesso attività educative all'aperto per migliorare e supportare l'apprendimento del bambino. Questa settimana i nostri alunni hanno visitato l'Handing College, collocato presso la stazione di Wong Chuk Hang, per scoprire cosa li aspetta nella scuola elementare. Gli insegnanti hanno guidato i bambini durante la visita alla struttura permettendo loro di esplorare il campus; hanno infatti scoperto che l'edificio è particolarmente grande e che vi sono molte aule con tante attività diverse! I bimbi hanno inoltre osservato con grande curiosità gli strumenti utilizzati nelle classi, trovandoli davvero interessanti. Al termine della visita, gli alunni hanno potuto porre domande per chiarire ogni dubbio e sentirsi più sicuri riguardo al loro prossimo percorso educativo alle scuole elementari. Vorremmo ringraziare tutti gli insegnanti e gli alunni dell'Handing College per la loro calorosa ospitalità!

On June 23, the Italian International Nursery & Kindergarten held a Dragon Boat Festival workshop for the children to help them understand the culture and significance behind this custom. Workshops are very important for the Reggio learning experience, so the school's native speaking teachers held a cooking class and an art class in small groups, offering a light and shadow experience as well. Throughout the morning, the children listened to the story of the Dragon Boat Festival, learning about its origin and significance, recited a themed nursery rhyme and visited the light and shadow room, which transported them right in the middle of a dragon boat competition and cooked “rice dumplings” to protect Qu Yuan’s body using the projector. Then, under the guidance of the art teacher, the children admired the patterns and colors on the dragon boat, and worked together to design the patterned scales of the school’s dragon boat. Finally, the children observed and examined the ingredients used to make rice dumplings using their five senses and made their own using red bean paste. The children who attended the workshop also received a dumpling from the school. We hope you all have fun during this Dragon Boat Festival!

Have you missed this workshop? Don’t worry! You can contact us to arrange other extracurricular and summer activities. Please call 2662 3066 or send a WhatsApp message to 5702 2731 to contact our school staff.

Infine, i bambini hanno esaminato con i loro cinque sensi gli ingredienti usati per preparare i fagottini di riso e hanno preparato i propri usando la pasta di fagioli rossi. Come regalo, ciascun bimbo ha ricevuto un fagottino di riso. Speriamo che questo Dragon Boat Festival sia piaciuto a tutti e che vi siate tutti divertiti!

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.
