The Hong Kong Scotland School Improvement Partnership

24 April 2016

Hong-Kong-300wSCEN is supporting a wonderful new initiative: the Hong Kong Scotland School Improvement Partnership (HSKKIP), Founder Director Archie McGlynn, the former HM Chief Inspector of Schools and Founder Director of the Hong Kong Schools Self-Evaluation Network. Our Hong Kong partners are visiting us in the last week of April and we have a most interesting programme. We hope that this will give many opportunities of further educational and cultural links between Hong Kong and Scotland. Here are the partner schools:

  • James Gillespie's High School, Edinburgh (Head Teacher Donald MacDonald), partnered with Law Ting Pong Secondary School (Principal Lancy Tam)
  • The Edinburgh Academy Senior School (Senior Deputy Rector, Debbie Birrell), partnered with Tsung Tsin Christian Academy - the two schools have already made a successful start to a partnership through Debbie's visit to Hong Kong earlier this year (Principal Jenny Kwok)
  • The Edinburgh Academy Junior School, partnered with Tsung Tsin Primary School and Kindergarten (Principal Dr Cindy Tam)
  • George Watson's College, Edinburgh (Principal: Melvyn Roffe; Head of Senior School: Heather Wilson), partnered with Creative Secondary School (Principal Cheung, Siu Ming)
