I am delighted to report that at Wycombe Abbey we have received approval from the EDB to re-open our school ahead of many other schools and that in addition we are able to operate for whole school days.
Our first pupils in Years Four and Five arrived back at school at 7:30am on Wednesday 20 May after exactly four months absence. It is hard to know who was more excited, the pupils or the teachers!
After an assembly that saw our pupils all safely spaced out in our large sunlit atrium, it was straight into classes and the day got underway, spot on time. The school day ran its busy course right through until 3.00pm.
On Monday 25 May, we look forward to welcoming our Year Three, Two and One pupils back to school. I know they are all very excited to be joining their older classmates.
Now that we are all ready to get back to normal school life, we are ready to launch our House system.
In our brand-new school, we are starting with two Houses, Peak House and Harbour House, to reflect our Hong Kong location. House Banners will be unfurled in the Atrium for the first time and House Badges will be distributed to pupils to wear on their uniforms.
In less than seven months, it will be the new school year 2020-21. We understand that parents are concerned about school placements and visiting the campus that is why we have the following arrangements.
Our Admissions Office remains open during business hours (weekday from 9.00am to 5.00pm). Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be more than happy to answer any questions and assist you in choosing the right school for your child(ren).
We are now accepting registration for daily School Tours at our Tin Wan Campus. Please be assured that our campus is thoroughly sanitized daily, and everyone’s temperature is taken and recorded. If you have recently travelled to China, we would like to kindly ask that you book an appointment 14 days after your arrival in Hong Kong.

Through collaborative efforts, our ICT Manager and Head of iSteam have developed WASHK’s Learning Platform, which is an online platform enabling our teachers and pupils to continue their everyday teaching and learning.
We are pleased to share some screenshots from our teachers and parents on the WASHK Learning Platform. Despite the difficult situation, we are happy to see our pupils engaging happily with the assignments we are providing on the Learning Platform, together with their parents.
The WASHK Learning Platform helps teachers and pupils to communicate, share assignments and receive feedback for their completed work. The platform is sectioned by subject channels so that pupils are in immediate contact with their subject teacher.
At Wycombe Abbey School Hong Kong, we are committed to offering you and your children the best learning experience we can provide in the current circumstances.
Laisee, which means good luck, are red envelopes that married couples give to their unmarried relatives, friends and colleagues. These are given during Chinese New Year as a sign of passing on their blessing and thanking them for their contributions in the past year. Nowadays, Laisee designs are becoming trendier with cute and creative designs.
Wycombe Abbey School Hong Kong held a ‘Chinese New Year Laisee Design Competition’ where pupils are welcome to submit their creative designs. Since this year is the Year of the Rat, many pupils used this as their main inspiration.
The winning designs were printed and made into real Laisee envelopes and given to the WASHK community.
