I am a Grade 7 (12 years old) student in The Canadian International School Of Hong Kong (or CDNIS). I am very proud to go to a great school like CDNIS with modern facilities in a superb location overlooking the sea. CDNIS is an IB school and has interesting curriculum which will educate us to be inquirers and life long learners. CDNIS is an international school with students from many different countries. Our school has the latest technology, encourages sport and art and overall I think our school is a great place to learn. The main language in CDNIS is English but I’m also learning Mandarin and French. I have lived in Hong Kong since birth and have been at CDNIS since I was 4 years old. My parents are British and Chinese and so going to CDNIS is perfect for me as its international just like me. I do not have any siblings…. just me, my mom, my dad and my dog at home. I live in the southern district of Hong Kong Island. I am a very sporty and active kind of person and I play rugby and football almost everyday for my school and club Hong Kong Football Club. In addition to these sports I play tennis, enjoy traveling, hiking and seeing new places and cultures. I know its important to get the right balance between learning and my other activities in order to be the best I can be and to also have fun.
