In loving memory of Dr. Michael Higgitt

RIP Dr. Michael Higgitt

Recent graduates of DBS as well as those who taught with him were saddened to hear that Dr. Michael A. Higgitt, the school’s first IB Coordinator, died peacefully last week after a long illness. As the man primarily responsible for the establishment and running of the school’s International Baccalaureate programme, he participated in the selection of its teachers and the admission of its first cohorts of students. He also guided the school through the process of applying to become an IB World School. He did these things while carrying out his duties as a chemistry teacher.

Dr. Higgitt’s biography is a study in the international-mindedness and broad-mindedness whose cultivation lies at the core of the IB’s mission. The younger son of a British diplomat, he was born in Baghdad and received his schooling in Aden, Wales, and England, where he excelled in cricket and rugby. After receiving his doctoral degree in chemistry in England, he worked as a researcher for eight years before embarking on a teaching career.

That career took him around the world, starting in Hong Kong, where he met his wife-to-be. After they were married they immigrated to Australia, where he was Head of Science at two schools. He resumed his international career, taking positions in Sapporo, Istanbul and Johannesburg before returning to Hong Kong.

His students are unanimous in testifying that he cared for them both as students and as individuals, chaffing and encouraging them as he taught. His philosophy of education administration he once expressed simply as ‘hire good teachers and let them get on with it.’ He thought that the best way of evaluating a teacher’s success was to watch—the students, and only secondarily the teacher. He was modest by temperament—so much so that it was possible not to recognize what a capable teacher and administrator he was. But his students didn’t make that mistake: a live classroom was oxygen to them, and to him.

Though Dr. Higgitt is no longer with us, we will cherish our memories of him.

Global Career Forum

The DSOBA and DBS Centre for Further Studies would like to inform you that a Global Career Forum will be held on 1 November, 2014. In previous years, this event was called “University Day” and was very well-received by past students. The reason for the name change was to reflect a change in approach. The event is intended to help you decide on your career path rather than just choosing which university to go to. Choosing the right university is just one little step towards a much greater goal - a fulfilling career. In addition, having clear career aspirations will help you choose the “best fit” universities to help you reach your goal.

The Global Career Forum will include industry specific group discussions to be led by representatives from various DSOBA professional chapters, including IT and media, healthcare and medicine, law, and building design and architecture. Please don’t miss this rare opportunity to obtain first hand career advice! Counselors from the Centre for Further Studies will also be on hand to provide insights on university admissions and how to research universities that offer courses related to your career interest. In addition, old boys who graduated from a wide range of universities in Hong Kong, UK, USA, Canada and Australia will be able to share their university experiences and what to expect when you start university.

Date: 1 November 2014 (Saturday)

Time: 2pm

Venue: School Hall, Diocesan Boys’ School

Registration: online registration form
