Education

Started in September 2017, Island Waldorf School is the first school on Hong Kong island to offer high quality Waldorf education to children aged 5-12.

By 2018/19, we will be made up of 4 classes: Foundation Year (5 to 6 years old), Class 1 (6 to 7), Class 2 (7 to 8), and Class 3 (8 to 9). We will grow organically by adding one more class over each of the following years.

Our campus is conveniently located in Kennedy Town and is easily accessible by public transport.

We are affiliated with and supported by Highgate House School, the oldest and largest Waldorf kindergarten in Hong Kong with over 16 years of history.

13 Nov: 金色的瓜樓

小學年紀的孩子,尤其喜歡詩歌的特定節奏和押韻的聲音。

老師把上課講的故事編成詩歌,讓孩子可以在聽與說中體驗到文字的美,也豐富了孩子的詞彙。

當我們做生字配詞語的練習時,孩子很容易就會聯想到之前讀過的詩歌,然後他們便會慢慢掌握到從聽說到讀寫是怎樣的一回事。

11 Nov: 漢字的秘密

一二年級的孩子在中文課上的經歷,正正像我們祖先跟世界互動而發明漢字的過程一樣:把聽到看到的東西以圖像的方式記錄下來。那些美麗的圖畫和線條,慢慢就變成了文字。
