Dear Parents,

Following on from our Mother/Daughter and Father/Son evening, our Year 6 students will be having a couple of in-class sessions on ‘Living and Growing’.  In these sessions, they will be shown some educational videos which cover the theme of Puberty, followed by class discussions.  Please contact me at susan.chung@bhs.edu.hk if you would like to borrow the DVD to view at home beforehand stating your child’s name and class.

Kind regards,

Susan Chung

We are all inquiring, singing, planning, creating and making. Check out the photos below for a taste of what is to come. 


We got a sneak peak of 4W’s class assembly. We loved their dance and even got involved at the end. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Here are some photos from the transition day. All of the students had a great time and are getting ready to leave the nest of Primary School and move on to a more independent experience at Secondary.
