In this student profile, we are shining the spotlight on not ONE, but TWO incredible ME students. Thea and Adam are siblings who, after a few short months with ME, both received admission offers from a long list of first-class international schools.
Thea, aged 11 and Adam, aged 7, both attended the International School of Beijing before their family made the move to Hong Kong. The siblings' mother explains that they moved to Hong Kong because, "we heard there is a better language atmosphere in the International schools of Hong Kong and that the children can reach the level of native speaker, very quickly."
Moving across to Hong Kong was not without its challenges and this included finding the right school for Thea and Adam. Their mom looked through dozens of different school options but could not find one that seemed to be the right fit for her children. It was not until she heard a friend mention that her child had been granted admission to a top international school in Hong Kong through the help of ME Education, that Thea and Adam’s mum reached out to us. A glowing recommendation and a call to our admissions office was just what she needed to hear and as they say, "the rest is history."
Thea dreamed of attending The Chinese International School. In order to prepare for the interview, she was given invaluable guidance from Ms. Julie on how to study for the English tests, both spoken and written. Thea attended the one-on-one courses with Ms. Julie twice a week. Each course was 90 minutes.
Adam also began the process of preparing for his international school interviews. With the help of Mr. Thomas, Adam took part in one-on-one courses that focused on the subjects he needed for the international school entrance examinations.
Following their hard work and dedication, ME helped Thea and Adam apply for several top international schools. Thea applied to The Chinese International School, English Schools Foundation and The Independent Schools Foundation Academy, while Adam applied to the Chinese International School, English Schools Foundation, The Independent Schools Foundation Academy, Yew Chung International School, Canadian International School of Hong Kong, Singapore International School Hong Kong and Discovery Bay International School.
With her dedicated attitude and the help of the ME teachers and admission consultants, Thea successfully obtained admission to five top schools: The English Schools Foundation, Chinese International School, The Independent Schools Foundation Academy, Yew Chung International School and the Canadian International School of Hong Kong. They chose to accept the offer of The Chinese International School and Thea is happily enrolled.
Adam was invited to interview with Yew Chung, and following a successful interview was offered a place. He also obtained admission to The Independent Schools Foundation Academy, The Singapore International School of Hong Kong, Discovery Bay International School and Canadian International School of Hong Kong. He chose to accept the offer from the Independent Schools Foundation Academy and he is enjoying studying there with his classmates and teachers.
Thea and Adam’s mom wrote to us to express her gratitude.
"I really appreciate the teachers and admission consultants at ME for the guidance they offered us. With their help, my two children were recognised by 10 first-class schools! Their dreams came true when they were successfully admitted to their first choice of international schools! I will continue to keep them enrolled in the tutoring courses in ME so they can stay on top of their schoolwork."
The images below are just some of the successful admission letters the siblings received. We are so proud of their hard work!
