Head of School's Message

“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all”- Aristotle
 
Welcome to Anfield International Kindergarten in Kowloon Tong where “Educating Hearts and Minds” is our most fundamental objective and mission. We believe completely in educating the whole individual child. Through our engaging, warm and welcoming environment, we guide each child’s academic progress, as well as their social, emotional and mental well-being. We believe that a good early years education is about building strong foundations and creating life-long happy learners.  This undertaking has been a joy and a privilege of Anfield for over 20 years and I am honoured to begin my role as the new Head of School. 
 
Originally from Canada, and working internationally in both the United Kingdom and Qatar, I have been in education for 15 years.  I am passionate about education and about children’s development across all ages.  I have worked within a variety of classrooms over the years and as a Senior Leader for the last several; including as a Head of Kindergarten in Doha and as Vice Principal here at Anfield. 
 
Together with our other 2 campuses, Laguna Verde and Tai Wai, we continue to work together to make Anfield an outstanding school in Hong Kong.  I believe the success of a school in educating the youth of the future, relies significantly on all those involved. With strong management, a fantastic and keen KG team, and the support of our dedicated parents, I am confident that Anfield will continue to achieve excellence.  Especially, in this ever changing world, we must work together to provide our children the best possible opportunities for the future.
 
I am very proud of our school and hope that when the occasion to visit arises, you will come to see us at work and at play.  You can witness for yourself a unique atmosphere that is the Anfield family.
 
Kind regards,

Christina Pickford
Head of School
