HOPE International School Timelines: Global Experience

HOPE International School was established in 2002 to provide quality, Christ-centered education for children of international Christian workers in Cambodia. An International core curriculum, that is compatible with systems from many countries is followed at HOPE, with all disciplines taught from a biblical worldview. Teachers at HOPE each profess HOPE’s Statement of Christian Faith and hold professional teaching qualifications in their home country. HOPE teachers actively encourage students to develop a personal biblical worldview as they seek to learn about, and make sense of, the world around them.

Paul was initially hired to provide fundraising development and communications and in the absence of a full-time IT manager, also helped with all IT management responsibilities at the school.
