History of SISHK

Singapore International School (Hong Kong) was first established in September 1991 in Kennedy Town with an enrolment of 200 pupils with the support of the Ministry of Education (MOE), Singapore.

In 1995, SISHK moved to its current premises in Aberdeen. The new purpose-built school was built on land granted by the Hong Kong government and the cost of the building was borne by the Singapore Government.

In 2012, our secondary campus was officially opened, connected to the primary campus by a link-bridge.
