Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to a New School Year!

With great enthusiasm and optimism, I extend a warm welcome to both familiar faces and those joining our school community for the first time. In high spirits, we embark on an exciting new school year at HCIS.

I am thrilled to share with you the remarkable achievements of our International Baccalaureate (IB) students in the recently announced results. The hard work, dedication, and perseverance of our graduating class of 2023 have truly paid off. With the IB world returning to pre-pandemic academic assessment levels, our students have delivered quality results with an IBDP pass rate of 100% and an impressive average score of 37.9 points. 57% of the cohort scored 38 points or higher and 39.2% achieving a score of 40 points and above. These results reflect the exceptional quality of education and commitment to excellence at HCIS.

The achievements are a testament to the incredible effort put forth by both students and teachers. It is heartening to see our students not only meet but exceed the high standards set by the IB program. Each graduate should take pride in their accomplishments, as they are now equipped with the skills, knowledge, and global perspective needed to thrive in their future endeavors. This success is not only a personal triumph but also the outcome of collective effort of their family members, and our very dedicated team of teaching staff.

Principal's Welcome

As we gather for another academic adventure, I want to express my sincere appreciation for the dedication and resilience demonstrated by each staff and student throughout the challenges of the past year. Our ability to adapt, support one another, and persevere has truly been commendable, and it speaks volumes about the strength of our school community.

This new school year brings with it a sense of renewal, growth, and endless possibilities. For the students, each day presents an opportunity to learn, grow, and build the foundation for a bright future. Take advantage of the diverse academic and extracurricular offerings available, and remember that success is not only measured by grades but also by the character you develop and the positive impact you make on those around you. I encourage you to embrace the opportunities that lie ahead. Our teachers and staff are committed to providing you with an enriching and supportive learning environment that fosters both academic and personal growth.

Parents, your partnership with us is invaluable. Your support at home greatly contributes to their success, and we look forward to working collaboratively with you to ensure a well-rounded and fulfilling experience for each student.

I want to take this opportunity to share some exciting highlights for the upcoming school year:

  • Innovative Academic Programmes: This year, we are introducing new and innovative academic programmes aimed at enriching the learning experience for all students. We are committed to providing a diverse and comprehensive education that prepares students for the challenges of the 21st century.
  • New Facilities: Our ongoing commitment to providing a conducive learning environment includes investments in enhancing infrastructure and building new facilities. We are dedicated to creating spaces that inspire creativity, collaboration and academic and sports excellence.
  • Community Engagement: Through various community engagement initiatives, we build a strong sense of community, fostering connections among students, parents, and staff. These initiatives will include volunteer opportunities, and events designed to celebrate the diverse talents within our community.
  • Enhanced Well-being Programmes: Recognizing the importance of holistic development, we are expanding our well-being programs to support the mental, emotional, and physical health of our students. Workshops, seminars, and wellness activities will be integrated into the curriculum to promote a balanced and thriving school community.
  • Global Partnerships and Exchanges: In an increasingly interconnected world, we are fostering global perspectives by establishing partnerships with schools and organizations worldwide. Through international exchanges, collaborative projects, and virtual interactions, our students will have the opportunity to broaden their horizons and develop a deeper understanding of different cultures.

As we look forward to the upcoming school year and the positive strides it promises to bring, together as a united HCIS community, we will continue to value-add to the holistic development of every student and strive for the continual pursuit of excellence.

I wish you a blessed year ahead.
