House of Knowledge’s “Virtual Open Day” is continuing and we look forward to seeing you soon!
Those of you who may already somewhat familiar with House of Knowledge, will know that adaptability, resilience and entrepreneurship belong to the school’s set of core values. We want students to develop the ability to be successful in different cultures, to bounce back from failure and hardship and to develop meaningful solutions to new problems. These core values, however, are nothing, if they are not displayed by the entire House of Knowledge community.
Therefore, we take the current situation as an opportunity and will introduce our programs and some of our educators in the “Virtual Open Day” sessions. You will hear about our tri-lingual curriculum, our project-based learning approach, and students’ daily life in a Chinese-English-German school environment. Our Group Education Director and our Principals will be available in live chats to answer all your questions as well.
The next school year may seem far away but at House of Knowledge we like to look at things positively and work towards a brighter future. So please join us for a preview of the 2020/21 school year !
