    Limitless Programme: Six Life-Changing Weeks for Y9 Students

    Dear Parent Next year, your child will be moving into Y9 at their ESF school. This is exciting for many reasons, none more so than the fact that this is the year that they become eligible for our Limitless programme. Limitless is something that is quite unique to ESF. For six weeks, the students who join the programme depart Hong Kong for a life in the Australian Outback. While there, they will undertake a whole range of activities designed to help boost their confidence and their independence – while also helping them to build up their resilience and to be an effective team player. They undergo a complete break from the internet, their devices and technology more generally. For six weeks, it is all about learning from and living with their peers from across all of our ESF schools. The current group of Y9s are on the Limitless programme right now. You can find out more about how and what they are doing by visiting the blog that the teachers who are also on the trip are maintaining. We will be in touch with you again after the Summer break to give you more details about Limitless. We will be hosting assemblies in schools – and also some information evenings for parents. This will be a chance to tell you more about this life-changing opportunity for your child. Have a great Summer Rob Shorthouse

  • End ofYear Checklist

    Students End of Year Checklist

    Dear students, As the school year comes to a close, there are a few important things to remember before you head off for your well-deserved break: Clear out your locker. Make sure to remove any personal items, clothes, or other belongings. Don't forget to remove your lock. Return any school books or materials you borrowed. These need to be returned to the library before you leave. If you have any unused notebooks, folders, or other school supplies, please donate them! Remove any used pages first. There will be boxes at the school reception where you can drop off these items. Check the lost and found for any uniforms, water bottles, or other items you may have misplaced during the year. Anything left behind won't be kept over the summer. Let's make sure everything is cleared, tidy and ready to go for next year. If you have any questions, please check in with your tutor or Head of Section.   Thank you, Ms. Lashley

  • Library Borrowing

    Reminder to return all library loans to the library before the end of Term 3 and how to borrow over the summer.

    Dear Students, As we come to the end of the school term, this is a friendly reminder to return your library loans before the end of term. All books borrowed within the last two weeks will be overdue by Monday 17th June. Also be aware that from this date you will be unable to borrow books at the self-checkout counter, only the “Return” function will be available to you. However as last year, all students (Year 7-11) may borrow up to 5 books for the summer holidays in the last week of school (June 24-28) if they meet the following criteria: No outstanding library loans. All requests for payment of lost or damaged books are cleared. You are planning to return to STC after the summer break. All loaned items are returned to the library within two weeks of returning back to school. In order to loan books over the holiday period we will need to adjust your return date manually in our library system, so please speak to either Ms. Hansen or Mr. Yuen directly if you would like to borrow over the summer. Students in Year 12 are not restricted by the 19th June deadline and may continue borrowing books for summer assignments/coursework as usual, these items must be returned or re-borrowed directly after the holidays. - Ms. Hansen

    Confirmation of School Place and Advance Fees For 2024/25 – ESF Schools

    Confirmation of School Place and Advance Fees for 2024/25 - ESF Schools Dear Parents As we approach the end of the school year, we are writing to let you know the procedure to confirm your child’s place for 2024/25. If you will be withdrawing your child and have submitted the Withdrawal Notice to your school, please ignore this letter. Every year, parents need to reserve a school place for their child for the following year by making an advance payment of September’s fees as a surety. The following parents are exempted from making advance payment as school places for their children are already reserved: A parent whose child is currently attending Year 6 and has secured a Year 7 place in any ESF schools for 2024/25 already; or whose child is newly enrolled to an ESF school to start in August 2024, including those who will attend Year 1 and Year 7; or who is a civil servant and receiving “local education allowance” (LEA) from the HKSAR Government; or who has already paid the Refundable Capital Levy (RCL) of HK$25,000 and the levy is still on the account. Advance Payment Advance payment for 2024/25 are as follows: Primary Years 2 to 6 HK$12,620 Secondary Years 8 to Year 9 HK$16,710 Secondary Years 10 to 11 HK$14,540 Secondary Years 12 to 13 HK$15,290   The advance payment will be used to offset tuition fees for September 2024. If there is a revision of fees in the next academic year, the difference will be payable in September 2024. Please note that your child’s school place will not be confirmed if we do not receive your advance fees before the payment due date or if there are any outstanding tuition fees on the account without prior arrangements at the beginning of the next academic year.   Settlement The advance payment will be debited from your designated bank account on 1 August 2024. Please ensure that there are sufficient funds in the account. If you have not set up the direct debit authorisation, please complete the Direct Debit Authorisation Form and send it back to English Schools Foundation, G.P.O. Box 11284, Hong Kong by 1 June 2024 as it takes up to six weeks for the bank to process the direct debit. If your monthly tuition fees are being settled by your employer directly, please make the payment by cheque on or before 15 July 2024: Click here to download and complete the Cheque Payment Slip Send the cheque payment slip together with a crossed cheque made payable to “The English Schools Foundation” to “G.P.O. Box 11284, Hong Kong”on or before 15 July 2024. Post-dated cheques are not accepted.   Student Withdrawals If you are withdrawing your child at the end of this academic year, please submit the student withdrawal notice via the ESF App by 1 June 2024. Otherwise, we will assume that your child is returning after summer and parents are liable for the tuition fees for September 2024 even if the student does not return to school. Should you have any queries regarding the above, please contact our Billing Team at billing@esfcentre.edu.hk We would like to thank you for your cooperation on this matter, and we wish your child every success in 2024/25.   Yours sincerely Vivian Cheung                             Julie Wong
