As school principal I am very pleased to welcome you to our recent website re-launch.
You must be wondering why we have done this when we are all worried about how the Covid-19 virus is affecting the well-being, health and safety of our families and friends both here in Hong Kong and abroad.
CSS is much more than just a place for studying and preparing for examinations. We are a community where the caring human relationships and daily interactions between students, and between students and staff, nourishes everyone’s academic, social and emotional development.
This period of school closure is a challenge to us all, as our students miss the company of friends and teachers. Yet it is also a time for reflection and for taking stock of our priorities, so that we can grow strong and prepare for the resumption of school. This is therefore a good time to revamp our website so that it can better serve our present and future learners at CSS.
Talking about the future, I would like to introduce you to Dr Anthony Adames, who will succeed me as CSS Principal after my retirement this summer. Dr Adames has been teaching and in leadership positions in Hong Kong since 18 years ago. He is an experienced senior educator and a very talented linguist. He is a highly qualified, effective and exceptionally compassionate school leader. I am very happy to be passing on the stewardship of CSS to him. You can read more about his background and his aspiration as an educator and as CSS Principal separately on this website.
Over the coming months, I will be working closely with Dr Adames to ensure a smooth and successful handover. After August I shall continue to support the school and be available to help the Board of Directors to further develop CSS in line with its core values and its long established vision.
Prospective parents and existing parents, you can continue to trust us to educate your children with total confidence!
