The saying around ICS is that the S stands for “Service to the community”. As Christians, there is no better time of year to put the needs of others first and tangibly show the love of God to the greater community of Hong Kong than by serving other people. Here’s a few examples of ICS students and faculty putting the love of Christ in action:

Christmas Project 2019

Kindergarten and Elementary School Shoeboxes - over 400 shoeboxes

- KG and ES students have prepared over 400 shoeboxes filled with gifts to bless the community.

ES Poinsettias - 80 Poinsettias
