Head of School shines a light on advantages of the Alberta curriculum

October 29, 2020

Richard Vanderpyl, head of school at CAIS, joined a panel discussion on 29 October at a webinar “The Value of a Canadian Education” where he presented the unique advantages of studying at CAIS with the Alberta Curriculum (Canadian Curriculum), along with Tony Munro, Manager, International Recruitment at the University of Waterloo and Jim Cohn, Director of Enrolment at St. Margaret’s School, Victoria.

Starting off the discussion with a brief introduction of CAIS and its mission, Richard reiterated the long term vision of the school: “CAIS does not aim to be the best school in Hong Kong but the best school for Hong Kong”.

In addition, he brought fresh perspectives on the unique advantages of Alberta Curriculum and how it allows students to pursue their passion while remaining a rigorous curriculum, and how the school prepares students to be ‘future ready’.

The panel discussion was followed by a lively Q&A session where speakers discussed topics around Canadian education.

The 1-hour webinar was part of the special education series organised by The Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong.
