A Concordia International School Network is Growing and Welcomes Two New Schools

Impossible Possible

God has His ways to keep us safe and to keep us together. All God’s works described below appear to be an impossible mission, yet God enables us to accomplish what appears to be impossible. He empowers us to achieve more than we could achieve by ourselves, more than we could ever imagine.

This summer, the Lutheran Church Hong Kong Synod (LCHKS) presses ahead with different ministries which serve one and the same purpose, namely, the expansion of God’s Kingdom and enhancement of relationships among people as well as between human beings and God. Two important advancements in the field of the Gospel ministry shall be mentioned.

Indeed, God blesses Vacation Bible Study (VBS) organised by our Synod abundantly this summer. We are able to serve more than 10,000 participants within the network of 60 schools, congregations and social service units. This number is a record high. Furthermore, 34 schools operated by the Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui, which is a name of the Anglican Church in Hong Kong, joined our VBS delivered both onsite and online. Through VBS, we have a precious and unique opportunity to serve children, our small friends, by sharing the Gospel message with them, using English as the medium.

This summer, the network of five international Concordia schools in Greater China, which offer globally-oriented and values-driven education, has welcomed two new schools. This network is our strength and a guarantee of collaboration as far as international education is concerned. In Hong Kong, we operate more than 40 national schools (from pre-schools to high schools). All those schools are committed to developing and nurturing knowledge, skills and attitudes among our students. We equip them to be life-long learners, high achievers and responsible citizens, transforming their lives and letting them discover their purpose in life in the light of Christian values.

God is faithful to His promises and every day He brings His blessing and healing to our society which had to face the recent pandemic and to withstand different hardships which compelled us to work even harder to assist the grassroots residents of our Region through our educational and social services. Likewise, we strive to bring hope to young people who struggle to find their calling in the community.

Currently, the Lutheran Social Service (LSS) is engaged in several significant social projects such as transitional housing or the revitalisation of historic buildings which are supported by public funds. A caring attitude of Hong Kong residents and the responsible leadership of our regional and central Governments helped to bring the pandemic under control and to reduce a number of new Covid cases significantly, while the vaccination rate is soaring.

As the Synod, we are committed to raising the next generation of citizens and believers. Therefore, by operating national and international schools, we intend to contribute to a peaceful, harmonious and stable community in which all law-abiding citizens can have their place, treasuring our culture and enjoying blessings coming from the Gospel which is not bound here but rather might be shared freely, in a constructive way. God’s work is going on and we are deeply grateful for that.

Concordia Conference
Professional Development 2019

Concordia School Group is pleased to present our fifth professional development conference from November 15-16 in BCIS (Shenzhen). This is a co-planned event by the three international schools that provides our educators the opportunities to foster a culture of collaboration, share best practices, and most importantly, keeps both our international and local teachers up-to-date with the latest trend in education. Participants to this event is not limited to the three international schools and are open to some of the national schools from Hong Kong that are under the HK Synod.
Dr. Vicki Anderson will continue to be our keynote speaker this year and our theme this year will be ‘Personalized Learning – Starting With The Big Idea.’ Concordia University Nebraska has over 100 years of history and they have been known for training teachers in the US. Concordia Nebraska has been in full support of our school group. Over these years, Dr. Anderson continues to be a big support to our school group. In addition to our annual PD conference, she works closely with BCIS in organizing and allocating US teachers for the school’s summer program. This summer program provides students in BCIS a greater exposure to American Culture and vice versa, helps to provide studentteachers from the US a glimpse into the Chinese culture. In addition, having US trained teachers working with the summer program also helps to provide a pool of trained and dedicated teachers for our school group in the future.
This year’s event continues to be an inspiration for all school leaders and educators to move forward together in enhancing the academic standards within our school group.
