As a community school, we recognise and value the importance of coming together to explore, contribute and celebrate.
We host a wide range of events each year that are designed to engage students, faculty, staff and parents as well as the broader community. Our approach to parent education is comprehensive, and we offer a series of opportunities for our parents as learners, empowering them as active partners in their child’s learning journey. Events are often initiated and led by student groups and parent committees, providing many entry points into participation for every community member.
The HKA Community Fair is the largest event on our school calendar, with over 1000 community members coming together for a day of performances, activities and food. The Lunar New Year Assembly, Staff Appreciation Lunch and End of Year Assembly instill pride and joy about being members of the HKA community. Additional smaller scale events such as coffee mornings, evening socials and fundraising dinners bring parents and staff together and provide social opportunities for building connections and forging friendships.
PARENT EDUCATION EVENTS
Motivated by a desire to engage in meaningful and significant action, HKA students develop, design and lead initiatives that demonstrate their growing identities as global citizens. Students organise excursions, fundraisers and performances focussed on the issues which they feel passionate about, such as refugee rights and protections, plastic use and waste production, homelessness and stray animals, often in collaboration with local or global partners. Our students approach these initiatives with an educational mindset, seeking to raise awareness beyond the event to motivate sustained involvement and action towards these issues by HKA community members.
