Principal’s Words

Ms Holly Gonzales
Assistant Principal

Welcome to Box Hill International Kindergarten and Preschool. My name is Holly Gonzales and I am based here in our Kwai Chung campus, which is a wonderful campus situated in a quiet and residential neighbourhood that is suited to young learners. As a purpose-built school, we can offer spacious classrooms and play areas for your child to develop.

As I enter my 21st year in education here in Hong Kong, I am extremely proud and excited to be a part of this school community and to work together with our students and their families.

During my years as an early year’s educator, I have taught children ranging from 6 months to 6 years. In addition to my classroom teaching, I have worked as a lead teacher, curriculum advisor and deputy principal.
I am dedicated to continuing students’ successes and will strive to continue the positive relationships, rigorous learning, and the incredible Box Hill environment that encourages its students to celebrate their unique strengths.

Our teaching team here is passionate about providing your children with the tools they need to become caring, responsible and resilient members of society. Our teachers come from all over the world and together we build upon the growing diversity within our world. We pride ourselves in bringing different perspectives to the early years’ settings and value our teachers’ experience and contributions to making Box Hill an amazing place to learn and grow.

I view education as a lifelong process, and most importantly, I bring a belief that the students and their families are at the centre of all school-related decisions. I am excited to bring my experience, my openness to learn, and my child-centred approach to support not only our students but their teachers as well. The relationships between families and the school are vital to the success of our students and I would like to encourage you to become involved in every way possible. I look forward to building long-lasting relationships with our families and work together to fulfil every child’s potential.

Box Hill follows the Early Years Foundation Stage of the British National Curriculum. We implement this play-based and child-led curriculum alongside a thematic approach. In addition to our English curriculum, we cover a solid and robust Chinese (both Cantonese and Mandarin) curriculum that will prepare your child for any primary school they wish to attend.

Together we will continue to move Box Hill students through a rich learning environment guided with love and support toward a bright future. I will strive to improve the quality of care provided and to treat each child as a unique individual.

If you would like to come and tour the campus, I would be more than happy to meet you and talk about your child’s bright future with Box Hill. Please visit this page to make an online booking.
