Summerbridge is now recruiting Year 12 & 13 students

Calling Year 12 & 13 students!
Looking for a meaningful internship and community service experience next summer?
We are Summerbridge Hong Kong, a nonprofit organi


ation, and we’re recruiting students interested in a unique opportunity to teach and mentor underprivileged youth in Hong Kong! Since 1992, many ESF students have been our Student Teachers and have counted it as one their most impactful internship experiences.

Our model is “Students Teaching Students“, where older students like yourself (16 – 22 years old) teach younger students (13 – 15 years old). As a Student Teacher, you will participate in 7.5 weeks inclusive of teacher training, teaching a subject of your choice to a class of 8 – 10 students, and planning engaging events. You will work with an incredibly diverse and enthusiastic group of Student Teachers from high schools and universities around the world, stretch your creativity, take on leadership roles, and collaboratively create a supportive space of learning!

Gateway Information Update for Quest Week 2016

Dear Parents,
Quest Week is fast approaching and the Trip Leaders are in the final process of organising the final details, one of which is the collation of the students medical, dietary and emergency contact details.
Please be aware that this information will be taken directly from the Gateway. For this reason it is essential that the information on your child(ren) is fully up to date and accurate. Please also note that it is of utmost importance to provide two different emergency contacts within Hong Kong.
If your emergency contact details will be different to the information on the Gateway during the Quest Week period then please ensure you email both Sasha James and the trip leader with this information prior to the start of Quest Week.
All updates, if necessary,  must be made by Wednesday 19th October 2016 in order to give sufficient time for the trip leaders to collate this information. Please be reminded that if your child has an allergy to a food type then this information should also be entered into the dietary section as well.
You will also be receiving an E-notice shortly which you will be required to respond to in order to verify that you the information on the Gateway for your child(ren) is up to date and relevant.
Should there be any changes required to the Gateway for your child(ren) after the 19th October regarding medical, dietary or any other relevant information please make certain that myself and the Trip Leader are aware that the Gateway has been updated and with what.
Many thanks in advance for your co-operation.
Kind regards,
Sasha James
