ESF Limitless Programme 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Sha Tin College would like to invite all Y9 Parents to read the information regarding the ESF Limitless Programme 2020 specifically designed for Y9 students across all ESF schools.

We will be holding an information session specifically for Sha Tin College students on Tuesday 17th September at 5.30pm – 6.30pm in the Senior School Centre @ Sha Tin College. Here you will learn more about this exciting opportunity, meet the students who attended the program last year and speak to the program director, Mr. Rod Feild from Higher Ground (see attached information). I will also be there to answer any questions you may have with regards to the program and how this fits into our school curriculum.

Please see below the key features of the program and more information on the application process can be found here:

  • Limitless is a 6-week experiential education program (May 08 – June 19, 2020). Location: Queensland, Australia

  • It is for Year 9 students across all ESF schools.

  • Limited to 60 places.

  • The program will be provided by Higher Ground, an outdoor education company based in Queensland, Australia.

  • The application will be via an ESF-wide online form on the Limitless website. This will require a short application letter, basic details of the student and suitability for the program. 

  • Important dates to note: 

    • Information Session: 17th September

    • Application Deadline: 26th September

    • Students are informed by: 3rd October

The link is https://limitless.esf.edu.hk/ with further information about the program and you may wish to draw attention to the Limitless blog via https://limitless.esf.edu.hk/blog/ which tells the story of last year’s program.

On a personal note, as one of the LEAD teachers attending the six-week program last year, along with 9 STC students, this is an exciting opportunity for any child who would like to participate in a more experiential style of learning.

If you have an interest in attending the information evening, please RSVP reply directly to Doris Tsoi on tsoim8@stconline.edu.hk and CC Ms Hanley on hanleyd2@stconline.com so we have an idea of numbers attending.

We very much look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you to our parent’s meeting next Tuesday 17th September.

Kind regards,

Ms. Debbie Hanley
Limitless Lead Teacher
