Fostering future pillars of the worldEducation | 31 Jan 2020
As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. (1 Peter 4:10)
The climate of education today has changed, slowly but surely shifting towards a spectrum that values academic excellence or what is in students’ trophy case above all, but should this be what education is truly about?
Established by the Kowloon Tong Church of the Chinese Christian and Missionary Alliance, Christian Alliance International School (CAIS) is an international school that provides Christian education from preparatory to grade 12 with the Canadian curriculum of Alberta Education.
Aspiring to cultivate learners with knowledge, skills, integrity and discernment, growing in love for God and service to humanity, the school offers students a transformative educational experience, empowering them to fulfill their potential as Christian leaders and global citizens.
“At CAIS, we strive not to be the best school in Hong Kong, but the best school for Hong Kong. We pride ourselves in growing not only students’ knowledge and talents, but their hearts as well, instilling in them the Christian value and a heart of compassion that will allow them to have a positive impact in the future of our world,” said Richard Vanderpyl, Head of School, CAIS.
Inside CAIS’s well equipped campus which is expected to complete its expansion soon, students are immersed in a nurturing and stimulating learning environment allowing them to have a well balanced development. Upon completion, the school will have 2 gymnasiums, a football pitch, a 300 seat lecture theatre, a 600 seat concert theatre, and more, allowing students to pursue their true interests and passions.
“Community is extremely important for us at CAIS. We do not measure children by what they can achieve; every child is unique as they are created by God. All of our teachers are Christians, and when our students come to school, they learn with their family of teachers and friends without inhibition,” said Vanderpyl.
With Chinese New Year coming up, the school will be holding various festive events to have a blast. There will be a Chinese New Year Fun Fair where older students and parents will pitch in and run games and food stalls, celebrating the auspicious New Year of the Rat in spectacular fashion!
