Dear Students, Dear Parents,
With great pride and satisfaction, since I arrived in Hong Kong, I have been able to ascertain the excellence of the educational path that the Italian International Nursery and Kindergarten in Hong Kong offers to enrolled boys and girls and consequently to the many parents who turn to this important institution, entrusting it with the education and basic training of their children at a crucial age for everyone's growth.
The more than positive outcome of the project by Franco and Pauline Cutrupia is a success for Italy. Their vision of the future, dedication, commitment and resources ensured the benefit of an initiative that enriches everyone. They are commendable and certainly worthy of the support of the Consulate General and myself on all possible occasions.
The excellence of the result rests on the professionalism of the promoters and on that of a solid team that has always known how to guarantee accurate preparation, a spirit of initiative and innovation, as well as profound sensitivity in complex phases of the history of the city and of everyone's life. All deserve credit for working without reservations, with competence and altruism to offer continuity in the learning path of the Italian, English and Chinese languages, allowing the Kindergarten to remain a flagship of the Italian presence in Hong Kong.
Hong Kong is experiencing an era of rebirth and relaunch in all sectors; teaching is not excluded. The cosmopolitan context of the city is destined to grow and deepen. The educational offer of the Italian International Nursery and Kindergarten will be able to fully seize the new opportunities, continuing to diversify and adapt the programs and offering the very young pupils a training course that includes numerous extra-curricular activities. The goal, so far more than achieved, is to motivate boys and girls and parents to deal with different social and cultural realities and profiles from time to time.
I am sure that the attendance at the Italian International Nursery and Kindergarten by the enrolled students will represent for them an undisputed added value and an invaluable growth experience that will be part of the positive set of experiences that will accompany them throughout their lives.
With these wishes, I sincerely wish all the children and their families a wonderful school year!
Consul General of Italy in Hong Kong
