If the School is oversubscribed, the following considerations will be taken into account:

  • Children who are Native english and Native mandarin speakers
  • Children of full-time staff or staff at GIS who have been employed at our school for over a year.
  • Siblings of students already attending GIS.
  • Children of past students who have attended GIS, for a minimum of three years.
  • Children who are past GIS students returning from a period overseas.
  • Children currently attending a GIS Playgroup. (Progression in Mandarin/English courses not included)
  • Date of receipt of a complete application

There may be instances when a child may have fallen behind in his/her education due to illness etc. If this is the case, the School may offer a place in a year lower than the child’s age would normally imply. There will be Consultations from parents or guardians before such an offer is made, but the decision as to the appropriate year for the child, taking into account all the relevant circumstances, is a matter for the Principal, whose decision is final.

In accordance with regulations as stipulated by the Education Bureau and Immigration Department, all pupils joining GIS must possess a valid Hong Kong ID card, allowing unconditional stay, or must have a valid passport with authorized residency status to be eligible for a place at GIS. A visitor visa does not entitle the holder to attend any school in Hong Kong.

You will be asked to attend an Interview for parents and children in May before your child secures a place.  We will also arrange an opportunity for your child to visit the school and meet the teachers, prior to their actual start date. Children must also then be accompanied in Pre-Nursery during the important settling period.

Student and Family Interview

The GIS staff team will review the application when all required documents and application fees are received. We will host interviews with prospective students and families. The Interview period will start from November 2017. During the interview, at least one parent must accompany the prospective student for assessment and interview appointment. Being an international kindergarten, families are very important to us. We encourage parents to be involved with our school and collaborate to help their child achieve educational goals.

GIS fosters rich and diverse learning experiences, in a well-resourced and vibrant environment for our students. We support their learning journey at GIS.
