Chairman of the Governor’s Welcome Message

Rain Jones, Head at Mount Kelly Hong Kong

I am honoured to have been invited to to take up the role of Chairman of the Board of Governors of Mount Kelly School Hong Kong (MKSHK) and also for the Asia-Pacific region for the Mount Kelly Group. I was the Founding Headmaster of MKSHK from 2016-2019. 

Working in partnership with Mount Kelly, UK, MKSHK delivers a curriculum that enables all pupils to excel and enrich their lives. Our commitment to a holistic education is historic and wholehearted. 

For the Governing Body, our prime area of focus is the success of the pupils and their ongoing welfare. I would like to thank all of our Mount Kelly parents on behalf of the governing board for your continuing trust and confidence in the school with the education of their children and also your confidence in the future of this great School and it’s future development. 

The School has established an excellent reputation locally and also internationally.  Our aim is to put the pupil’s interests at the heart of everything we do and plan.  This is to give young people the skills, confidence and capabilities to navigate their own paths through life. 

MKSHK provides pupils with the skills and character development they’ll need to operate in this dynamic and ever changing world. With our wide-ranging curriculum and the unique Shackleton programme, the School seeks to teach our pupils the importance of making a contribution to the society in which they live, to take responsibility and to ‘put something back’. 

None of what has been achieved with MKSHK would have been possible without the dedication and hard work of our staff, to whom all the Governors give their upmost thanks. 

My background in education both as a current Principal of an international school and as a governor has made me well aware of the considerable financial commitment parents make toward the education of their children. The provision of a high quality education in Hong Kong represents the best possible investment that can be made by parents. 

Please come and visit us in our school set in the heart of Hong Kong and let us show you why Mount Kelly is different and why we are seen as a leading British international school in Hong Kong.

Chairman of the Governors
