The ICHK story began in the early 1980s when a small group of parents joined together with a shared vision for a school at the heart of the Hong Lok Yuen community.
Orchard Kindergarten started operating in a show house on the estate in 1982. Thanks to their passion and dedication, the following year Hong Lok Yuen International School was opened with 33 children using seven classrooms and a library.
This is the first full school photograph that we have from the school’s early days. Whilst the school has grown, what remains central is the community ethos which spurred its beginnings.
