Shrewsbury International School Hong Kong is committed to ensuring that all students have the necessary knowledge and skills to thrive in the modern workplace.
We understand that tomorrow's leaders need to be comfortable, confident and competent in highly technological environments. Instantaneous access to the world wide web and its vast compendium of information, tools and multimedia resources is reshaping how we acquire knowledge and skills. We are focused on providing a set of skills in our international Primary School and Early Years students that goes beyond simply finding and consuming information. How we collate, analyse, interpret and share this new wealth of information is at the heart of our approach to technology.
In order to ensure that our students are both digitally and personally literate, technology is used considerately and intelligently to support learning and the formation of healthy respectful relationships.
With iPads on the school site, supported by Apple TV and Interactive Whiteboard installations in every classroom, we aim to ensure that technology is portable and accessible at the exact time it is needed in the learning process.
Situated on the fourth floor, beside Year 1 and 2 classrooms, the Library at Shrewsbury International School Hong Kong offers a wealth of resources designed for Primary School and Preschool students and to foster a lifelong love of reading and literature. It acts as a communal space and helps students develop critically important research and digital literacy skills.
With a collection of more than 8,000 English books and 1,500 Chinese books, the Library aims to inspire readers of all ages and form connective pathways across the school curriculum. Students, parents and staff have full access to our growing collection.
We also offer electronic resources to help with reading, research, homework and independent discovery.
A key resource for all members of the community, the Library is open before, during and after school. The Shrewsbury students are welcome to browse, borrow or change books during a range of allocated slots, sensitively supported by our Library team.
The Library is also used to support language learning throughout the school, hosting regular classes and occasional guests.
