Hong Kong Education Awards

02 Jun 2021 General, Babies and Toddlers, Preschool, Preparatory and College

This year saw the launch of the inaugural Hong Kong Living Education Awards, commemorating schools across Hong Kong for their performances during 2020 across various categories, such as Best International School and Best Student-Centred School, to name a few.

It was our honour and delight to be nominated for an astounding 16 awards and to have won in 5 categories, including the extremely competitive Teacher of the Year category to our very own Ms. Sophie Jackson, who has been teaching with Mount Kelly since it opened. We couldn’t be more proud of our incredible teaching and support staff, who are truly inspiring.

We are very proud of all the nominees and it is a joy to see so many of our staff being recognised for their dedication and outstanding practice.

Ms. Rain Jones, Head of Schools, said “the awards we have received reflect the core strength of the school, which is our teachers. To be recognised by a third party is an outstanding achievement of which we are very proud and grateful for.”

We are thankful for the support from all the Hong Kong community and are very excited to see the future developments of Mount Kelly.

The winners are:

  1. Best School - Physical Education (with very special thanks to Mr. Richard Lankshear and Mr. Joe Barker)
  2. Best Support Staff - Ms Karen Chiu (Key Stage 1 Teaching Assistant)
  3. Kindergarten Principal of the Year - Ms Hanady Fawzy
