Principal’s Message

Dear Parents

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your terrific support this year. Personally it has been a challenging year for me with the sudden loss of my father in September, but work wise it has continued to be a journey that I love and cherish every day.

You all have wonderful children who you should be very proud of.  It is such a pleasure to work with staff and children who know how important learning and growing is and who approach it with such enthusiasm and excitement.  I am very proud of what we have achieved as a team this year but look forward to working hard next year to ensure we continue to grow.

If you have not already done so, please access Gateway to read the end of year reports that were released on Monday afternoon.

To all the families who are leaving Hong Kong, have a child in Year 6 who is going to Secondary School, or are leaving Peak School for other reasons, we wish you all the very best and thank you for your amazing support.

To our returning parents, I wish you a safe and happy summer with loved ones and I do hope you will get an opportunity to spend time with your child or children during their summer break.  We look forward to working with you and your children closely next year.

Again, thank you for all your support this year.

Warm Regards
Bill Garnett

Library News

As we head into summer don’t forget about our E-book platform which every Peak School family can enjoy throughout the holidays.

The Peak School Library electronic book collection is open for business 24-7.

Students in Year 3 and above can go to our ebook site (check it out here) and sign in with their Planet Peak username and the password ‘ebook’ to start borrowing from the 450 titles available. That is a lot of summer reading! All you need is wifi and a device such as a phone, a computer or an ipad and you can access it from anywhere you are in the world.

Have a wonderful summer, and take advantage of those long lazy days with a never ending supply of reading material from Peak School Library!

See you on the other side of summer…
