循循善誘勉勵 孜孜不倦傳薪

親愛的家長:

  開學至今已經兩個月了,相信同學們已經適應並享受着充滿關愛的校園生活。還記得在開學禮中,我曾跟同學們分享東奧運動健兒在比賽背後所經歷的艱苦訓練嗎?常言道:成功非僥倖,健兒們不但要付出很大的努力,而且要抱持堅毅的精神,縱使遇到困難和障礙,也不會輕言放棄。要知道,成功需要結合堅持、毅力和無數次的鍛煉,配以「自強不息」的拼勁才能達到。

  那麼,我們該如何實踐「自強不息」的拼勁?你們認識「生命鬥士」力克·胡哲(Nick Vujicic)嗎?他雖然天生沒有四肢,但他沒有放棄自己,還可以跟常人一樣去游泳、騎馬和踢足球,展示生命的魄力。力克説:「我不斷學習自行站起來,嘗試一百次也可能同時面對一百次的失敗,但我會繼續不斷嘗試,因為我知道:如果我因此而放棄,我便永遠不能成功。」而他永不放棄的精神更是源於對神的信心:「我深知神不會製造錯誤,只會創造奇蹟,就像我,就像你。」力克的故事觸動我們的心靈,也印證了「天生我才必有用」這句話,讓我們知道每個人都能夠有其獨特優秀的一面。

  本校致力推動多元化的學習平台,並提供不同的學習機會,讓同學們涉獵不同的項目和範疇,以達到均衡發展,盡展所長,展現其獨特優秀的特質。本校鼓勵學生多作嘗試,學生可參與不同的活動及比賽項目來發掘興趣,發展潛能;學生亦可透過成為班代表、擔任班內職務或學校服務生,培養責任心和提升自信,加強對學校的歸屬感。其實,學習不僅出現在課堂時間,也可埋藏在生活中的每項細節,有待探索和發掘。你們到超級市場購物時,有沒有細心留意那些中英對照的指示牌?在乘坐港鐵時,有沒有留心聆聽不同的語音廣播?知識是一點一滴累積而來的,大家要妥善運用半天上課的時間,好好在家温習,不要把光陰花在玩樂或電玩上,要珍惜寶貴的學習時光。

  十一月下旬便是學校進行評估一的日子了,屆時更是小六的呈分試,各位同學要勤奮温習,全力以赴,抱持堅毅的精神和認真的態度去應試,只要能將過程中會遇到的困難化為進步的動力,自然成功在望。此外,還要謹記一點:成功之道並不在於與他人比較,而是要時刻鞭策自己,努力不懈地學習,「少種的少收,多種的多收」(哥林多後書9:6),小步能成就大步,不要忽略每次的進步,因為每一小步都能引領我們邁向成功之路。

  感謝家長們對學校的支持,無論家校茶聚、升中講座均獲得大家熱烈參與,特別銘謝家長義工在大小活動中的協助,充份發揮家校合作的精神。現時香港仍受疫情的影響,基於防疫的安全考慮,區會陸運會及學校旅行均須取消,待下學期觀察疫情的狀況再作安排。「我們曉得萬事都互相效力,叫愛上帝的人得益處。」(羅馬書8:28)讓我們繼續家校攜手協力,共同為教養孩童而努力。因為「喜愛管教的,就是喜愛知識。」(箴言12:1)願我們的孩子都受教和喜愛知識,在主的愛中茁壯成長。

校長

Dear Parents/Guardians,

It has been two months since the commence of the school year. Students have got used to and enjoy the loving and caring school life. Do you still remember that I shared the harsh training that the Olympians had gone through before they participated in the Tokyo Olympic Games? As the saying goes, success is not a random act. Athletes not only devote themselves to sports whilst trying their very best but also at being prevalent and determined. They never give up when they come across any difficulties and obstacles. Success is a long-term effort with persistence, determination and the fighting spirit of “strengthening oneself without stopping” to reach the goal.

Then how can we practise the fighting spirit of “strengthening oneself without stopping”? Do you know Nick Vujicic? Although he was born without arms and legs, he did not give up on himself. Nick swims, rides a horse and plays football just as others do. He demonstrates the courage of life. As Nick Vujicic said, “I will try 100 times to get up, and maybe I will fail 100 times. If I fail and give up, will I ever get up? No! I’ll try again and again and again. But I want to tell you, it’s not the end”, we should never give up easily.” His boldness reveals his faith in God. As he said, “I know for certain that God does not make mistakes, but he does make miracles. I am one. You are, too.” Nick Vujicic’s story touches our hearts and reminds us that we are a miracle created by God. Everyone is unique in their way.

Our school is committed to providing students with various learning experiences so that they can have a balanced development. They provide a variety of learning experiences in different topics and areas which aim to enable students to fulfill their potential and demonstrate their positive attributes. We also offer different extra-curriculum activities and competitions to engage students in fostering their all-rounded development. Moreover, students can be elected to become class monitors, leaders, subject helpers or prefects in order to strengthen their sense of responsibility, confidence and increasing their sense of belonging. Learning does not only take place in the lessons but happens in every moment of life. We can learn through the little things in life. There are small things hidden in life for us to explore and discover. Take shopping in the supermarket as an example. When you go to the supermarket, have you noticed the signs with both Chinese and English explanations? When you travel on the MTR, have you paid attention to the announcement in different languages? Knowledge is gained little by little. We can fully utilize a half-day school day to revise at home. We should not waste it on playing computer games but cherish the precious learning time.

The first summative assessment including P.6 assessment will be carried out in late November. Students, work hard and revise more to prepare for the assessment. You should strive to achieve your best and to take part in the test seriously with determination. Try to change the difficulties you may encounter into your motivation in order to improve and success will be just around the corner. Apart from working hard, please remember that success is not about comparison with other people, but constantly urging ourselves to study hard and never stop learning. As the Bible says, “Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously” (II Corinthians 9:6). Little by little, never ignore every improvement as every small step will lead us to the road to success.

Thanks to the support from our parents, that actively participated in both the Parents and Teachers Joining Hands and the talk “Preparing Children for Secondary School Selection”. I would like to express my gratitude to our parent volunteers for their support in our school activities. Your involvement shows the importance of home-school cooperation. Regarding the COVID 19 outbreak and its prevention measures, School Sports Day and Picnic Day have been cancelled. We will continue to monitor the situations under the influence of the pandemic. As the Bible says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28). Let us continue to cooperate and nurture our students. As “whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid” (Proverbs 12:1), we wish our students all behave well, love learning and grow in the grace of the Lord.

Sincerely,

Chiu Kit Wa

Principal
