Your generosity is all the more meaningful in what has been another challenging year. Thank you!
Offering opportunity, hope and potential
Our community raised over HK$4m for the AMD Fund for Bursaries in 2020-21, with the largest donation over HK$1.22m and the smallest HK$150. This is extraordinary in what has been one of the most turbulent years in recent history and is testament to the remarkable generosity of our special community.
Every contribution helps us provide an education to someone who otherwise would not be able to attend Kellett. Our first bursary students, funded by the AMD Fund, started at Kellett in August 2020 and are flourishing. More are in the pipeline. Each dollar donated contributes to giving a child more opportunity, more hope and greater potential.
We are very grateful to the seven families who have generously named ten seats in The David Kidd Theatre in the Kowloon Bay campus. If you would like to 'take a seat' and give the gift of a Kellett education, please click here.
Kellett Scholars give back
Did you know that a third of all Scholarship awardees have generously decided to donate their fee remission to the AMD Fund to enable less fortunate children get a place at Kellett? What a wonderful and generous gesture!
Thank you to our scholars and their parents for enabling another child to access a Kellett education.
During this past year we have been fortunate to have received some significant donations, without which our bursary programme may have stalled as a result of Covid. We will forever be grateful for the remarkable generosity of these individuals.
Major donors are invited to join our 1976 Society and their generosity will be recognised in a new board installed in our Kowloon Bay Campus.
Thank you to all 1976 Society members.
K2, our curriculum enhancement fund, was asked to help purchase some equipment for a special new subject - Innovation. Class time is now dedicated to innovation in the early years of Senior, and it is also a popular activity after school. Creative problem-solving takes centre stage, drawing on skills and knowledge from a range of more traditional subjects. Mobile equipment (pictured) enable students to innovate all over the campus, be it building robots or trialling hydroponics.
Martin Davies, Head of Innovation explained why the School is so focussed on innovation and what students can expect from the subject: click here to watch the video.
If you want to help supercharge the Kellett curriculum please consider making a donation.
