Message from the Chairman

Welcome to HKAHSS!

Founded in 1964, HKAHSS was incorporated as a limited company by guarantee in 2018 and the Association has been entitled to the tax exemption under section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance (Cap. 112) with effect from 22 December 2020.

At the end of the 2020-2021 school year, we had 378 Full Members, 20 Associate Members, 63 Life Members and 8 Affiliated Members, making a total of 469.   We are grateful for your unfailing support.

HKAHSS has been enhancing professionalism and promoting the understanding of education in Hong Kong for more than 55 years.  To celebrate the 55th Anniversary of HKAHSS, we organised the 2nd Education Colloquium in September and October 2019 with the theme of “Curriculum for the Future”.  Many local and international experts, including the OECD Director, the Chief Justice, University Vice-Chancellor, Professors, Business and Social Leaders, were invited to have professional dialogues on future education.  We also conducted a research on “Survey on the Curriculum Reform: From Present to the Future” together with The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and publicised the research findings in January 2020.  The 55th Anniversary Magazine was issued in June 2020.

Enhancing professionalism has always been the mission of HKAHSS and student welfare is our top priority.  In June 2021, the Research Report on “How to Promote the Professional Status and Social Recognition of Secondary School Teachers in Hong Kong” which commissioned to The Hong Kong Policy Research Institute (HKPRI) was released.  In December 2021, the Survey Report on “Student Withdrawal from School and Teacher Turnover” which jointly conducted by HKAHSS and The Hong Kong Centre for International Student Assessment (HKCISA), CUHK, was presented during the Annual General Meeting.

Thank you for supporting HKAHSS in the past years.  Let’s join together for the betterment of future secondary education in Hong Kong.
