親愛的家長:

Strong   

    當我看到上面這幅圖,深思背後帶出的訊息時,引發我很大的共鳴:如果我們只用單一的標準、方法去培育或衡量孩童,便會忽視了他們不同的專長和能力,因為天父給了我們每個人有不同的能力和興趣。事實上,本校在教育孩童的道路上,一直堅守着這個方向──我們深信每個小孩都是「獨特而唯一」,所以本校設計了多元化的課程,讓孩子能在不同的學習領域上發掘自己的興趣,盡展所長。

  

隨着資訊的發達和進步,未來的社會將會是怎樣的?我們的孩子在若干年後會變成甚麼樣子?他們又會面對怎樣的挑戰呢?最近,我閲讀了一篇由新加坡校長在考試前夕寫給家長的一封信,其中一段讓我尤其深刻:「如果你的孩子考到很捧的成績,那非常好,但是如果他們考不好,千萬不要打擊他們的信心和自尊,告訴他們放心,那只是一場考試,生命中還有很多更重要的事情等着他去做,告訴他們,不管他們考得怎麼樣,你還是一樣愛他們,也不會批評他們,好好看着你的孩子征服世界,一個考試或者很低的分數,並不能剝斷他們的夢想和才能。」誠然,孩子的成就,不應只取決於「分數」,要知道每個孩子都擁有不同的特質和長處,因此我們不應該以「成績」掛帥,也不應該用「分數」來釐定他們的成就。有關達至「成功」的條件,美國成功學大師史蒂芬.柯維所寫的《與成功有約》一書中提出了七項「成功的要素」,其中一至三項為「個人素養」,四至七項為「外在因素」。書中所指的「個人素養」,包括「主動積極」、「以始為終」、「要事第一」,所以,孩子們能具備「有自信」、「有目標」、「有自控能力」是相當重要的,而且凡此種種都要從小培養出來的。因此,我們不應過份在意孩子在考試成績的表現,反而應該思考孩子如何有效學習及培養他們的自我認同、積極性及自控能力等個人素養。

  

本校致力推動「一生三體藝」專項課程,正正是要鍛鍊孩子的堅毅和自信,提升他們的個人素養。我們讓學生在體育、音樂及藝術三個範疇內選出感興趣的項目,並且他們要運用五年時間在所選定的專項中持久專注地學習直至小六畢業。這個安排背後的理念是為了鍛鍊學生的毅力,並向着自訂的目標進發:無論是學好一種樂器抑或一種技能,都需要堅持不懈才能成功。在每個專項的學習過程中,均以所訂立的學習目標為定向,培養發自內心的堅持和自信。我們認同相比於「成果」,「過程」才是最重要的,學生可以在反覆練習的過程和訓練中學習如何透過堅守信念,取得成功。

  

其實,學習不只限於課堂,功課亦不是唯一鞏固學習的途徑。所以,本校將與香港基督教服務處樂Teen會合作,在一至三年級推行「自主學習計劃」,利用復活節假期,教導他們訂立學習目標,學會規劃自己的學習和生活。我們希望透過此計劃,使假期變成「新」的學習空間,讓學生學會規劃及主導自己的時間;學生可以運用假期來學習生活智慧、掌握生活技能、實踐時間管理、計劃做自己喜愛及有價值的事情,培養他們展現出主動、負責、自律、有目標、有計劃的做事態度,體驗自主學習的樂趣和意義;家長則可把握假期的時間跟子女進行親子活動或玩樂,促進溝通和關係。本計劃的簡介會將於四月十日(星期一)的家校茶聚舉行,歡迎家長參加。

  

復活節假期將至,讓我們藉此深思、感激及體會耶穌從死裏復活所帶來的盼望和意義。救主耶穌於二千多年前為我們贖罪、釘死在十字架上,死後被埋葬,再復活升天,證明了神對人的憐憫,給予我們生命的盼望,使我們得着平安與喜樂。本校將於四月一日(星期六) 邀請循道衞理佈道團在校舉行「變!變!變!全新的我」佈道會,並誠意邀請家長帶同親友及鄰舍參加,認識福音,過一個非一般的週末。此外,為配合佳節,本校會於四月十一日(星期二)舉行復活節崇拜,並於四月十一日(星期二)至四月十二日(星期三)舉行小四福音營,讓他們反省自我,明白福音,信靠耶穌,活出豐盛人生。最後,送上聖經的話語作勉勵:「因聽見你們在基督耶穌裡的信心並向眾聖徒的愛心,是為那給你們存在天上的盼望。這盼望就是你們從前在福音真理的道上所聽見的。」(歌羅西書1:4-5)

2016-2017 April Newsletter

5th April, 2016

Dear Parents/ Guardians,

Strong

  When I look at the picture and I think deeply behind the message: If we only use a single standard or method to assure or nurture our children, we will ignore their different talents and abilities that our heavenly father gave everyone. In fact, our school has been sticking to this belief that every child is unique, so we have designed a wide range of curriculum for children to explore their own interests and to develop their own strengths.  With the rapid growth of IT development, how will our society change? What will our children look like in a few years? What challenges will they face? Recently, I have read a letter to parents from a Singaporean principal just before the exams. One of the paragraphs particularly impressed me: "If your child does get top marks, that’s great! But if he or she doesn’t, please don’t take away their self-confidence and dignity from them. Tell them it’s ok, it’s just an exam. They are cut out for much bigger things in life. Tell them, no matter what they score, you love them and will not judge them. Please do this, and when you do, watch your children conquer the world. One exam or a low mark won’t take away their dreams and talent."

  It is true that the child's achievements should not be only measured by "scores". Each child has different strengths, so we should not use grades or scores to determine their achievements. Dr. Stephen R. Covey, an American educator, has listed seven factors of success in his book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The first three habits are “individual qualities” and the last four are “external factors”. The personal qualities include engaging actively, persistence and first priority. Therefore, it is important for children to have self-confidence, be target-oriented and have self-control. All these qualities have to be cultivated from the time they are young. Therefore, we should not be too concerned about the performance of children in their examinations, but should think about how to effectively learn and develop children's self-identity, enthusiasm and self-control and other personal qualities.

  We are committed to promoting the STARS curriculum, to help train children’s perseverance and self-confidence and to enhance their personal qualities. We allow students to select an activity of their interest in the three areas: sports, music and art. They need to spend around five years learning in their own selected areas until they finish their primary study. The rationale behind this arrangement is to enable students to be more perseverant and ambitious. Whether it is to learn a musical instrument or a skill, they need perseverance to be successful. In their learning process, we apply learning objectives that train students to have inner insistence and self-confidence. We believe that the process is more important than the results and students can learn how to be persistent and be successful through practices.

  In fact, learning does not only occur inside the classrooms and homework is not the only way to help students consolidate what they have learnt. Therefore, we will work with the Hong Kong Christian Service Happy Teens Club to implement the Self-directed Learning Programme in Primary 1 to 3. The programme aims at teaching students to set up their learning objectives and learn to plan their own learning during this Easter holiday. We hope that students can make good use of their holiday through this programme. Students are able to learn to plan how to have better time management, how to master their life skills, and how to plan to do their favourite and valuable things. The programme also aims to educate students to show their initiative and responsibility, self-discipline, targeted, planned attitude to work, to experience the fun and the meaning of self-learning. Parents can make good use of their holiday to play and communicate effectively with their children. The briefing session of the programme will be held on 10th April (Monday) during the Parents and Teachers Joining Hands Session and we welcome all parents to participate.

Easter is coming and it reminds us that Jesus was crucified, died and was buried and then resurrected to heaven more than two thousand years ago. This shows us God's mercy and it gives us hope so we can have peace and joy. In this festive season, an evangelical rally called "Change! Change! Change! A Brand New Me" will be held on 1st April (Saturday) at our school by the Methodist Missionary Mission. We sincerely invite parents to bring your family members, friends and even your neighbours to participate in this gospel event. Our Easter worship will be held on 11th April (Tuesday) and a P.4 gospel camp will be held from 11th to 12th April (Tuesday & Wednesday). These activities give us a chance to self-reflect, understand the gospel and have faith in Jesus so as to live a rich life. Last but not least, let me share some scripture with you: "For we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and your love for all of God’s people, which come from your confident hope of what God has reserved for you in heaven. You have had this expectation ever since you first heard the truth of the Good News” (Colossians 1: 4-5).

May the children grow joyfully in God's grace and his truth!

Sincerely,

Chiu Kit Wa

Principal
