Your generosity is all the more meaningful in what has been another challenging year. Thank you!
AMD Fund for Bursaries
We continue our efforts to raise HK$26m by Kellett's 50th anniversary in 2026, to provide two bursary places for disadvantaged children each year.
During 2021-22 our community raised over HK$3.94m for the AMD Fund for Bursaries. It is testament to the remarkable generosity of our community that this has been achieved in such a trying year.
We currently have 5 bursary students, all of whom are thriving at the school. Thank you to all who have made this possible.
Please support the AMD Fund if you are able.
Given that most of our bursary students hail from the refugee and asylum communities, we were honoured to hear what it’s like to be a refugee in Hong Kong during our inaugural Elliott Lecture. If you missed it and want to better understand the need for bursary places you can watch it here.
The students, following special lessons and talks to help them better understand the challenges facing refugees, came together to battle it out to see which school could collect the most coins for the AMD Fund. Collectively the schools raised an incredible HK$33,563, with PFL Prep collecting the most with just over HK$14,000!
Thank you to all who donated to our #KellettCoinChallenge!

Kellett Scholars give back
We continue to see extraordinary generosity from the families of Kellett Scholars, nearly half of whom donate their fee remission to provide a school place for another child. Thank you for giving back.
K2, our curriculum enhancement fund, has supported a number of projects and speakers over the past year. Thank you to each and every donor who made these enhancements possible, our students and staff really appreciate it.
K2 funded the purchase of equipment for our new subject - Innovation. Innovation lessons have intrigued and inspired our Year 7 & 8 students ever since, and have proved so popular this year those lessons were expanded to years 5,6 & 9. Watch the short film here to find out more.
K2 funded a Critical Perspectives lecture given by Jane Barron and Valerie Besanceney from Safe Passage Across Networks. Both are experts in Positive Psychology, specialising in International Transitions. They gave our Sixth Form students a powerful message about the link between managing transitions and academic success, and practical advice as they approach the transition to uni.
