Message from Principal

 

I am delighted to have been appointed Principal at EtonHouse, Hong Kong, and am excited to be joining an established Kindergarten with a renowned reputation and a large network of schools in the region.

I am originally from Australia and have been living and working in Hong Kong for many years whilst undertaking various educational roles. I hold post graduate qualifications in leadership and management with a strong background in the education field. Having worked as class teacher and Coordinator, to Founder and Manager of an International Pre-school puts me in a strong position to continue the excellent teaching and learning currently happening at EtonHouse.

I started my journey in the education sector managing 3 Save the Children Fund Preschools, in Hong Kong’s refugee camps. After some time back in Australia I returned to Hong Kong where I have worked in both local and International school contexts in senior management roles including English School Foundation (ESF). I have strong exposure to EYFS, IB, Reggio Emilia approach and local HK curricula. This experience has enabled me to develop a deeper understanding of education within the context of Hong Kong as a teacher, leader and as a parent of two daughters.

I am a strong advocate of inquiry based learning, with a passion for Reggio inspired environments that support high quality teaching and learning. Play is at the very heart of early years, and children should feel supported and nurtured as they explore and interact with the world around them.

I look forward to becoming part of the wonderful EtonHouse community, meeting the children and learning together with the teachers as we continue our education journey together.
