Principal’s Message (2017)
I am glad to work with a team of dedicated teachers as we all share a very important conviction: that each student is unique and valuable, and that given suitable opportunity and encouragement, every child can shine on the stage. The school year 2016 – 2017 proved to be another very fruitful school year to Sheng Kung Hui Tang Shiu Kin Secondary School with all achievements accomplished by our students and teachers. (For details, please refer to our newly published School Brochure 2017 on the School Web).
The annual school goal for the new academic year is “The Future is Yours to make – Be Wise, Be Kind and Be Courageous”. This once again reminds our students to make wise decisions as every decision they make will affect their future. We believe that a sound academic background is the base of wisdom and therefore our school will continue to strive for academic excellence. Besides, the Bible reminds us that “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” For this reason, we would like our students to know more about God so that they can make decisions which will bring glory to Him, and at the same time show kindness to others.
I love the Serenity Prayer:
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Courage is what our students need in order to step out of their comfort zone, to change, to develop and become a better person for a better world. This is the virtue that we would like our students to possess. Together with "Perseverance, Forgiveness and Tolerance", which are qualities manifested by our school motto, HYPOMONE, our students will develop as young adults who are wise, kind and courageous.
Sheng Kung Hui Tang Shiu Kin Secondary School, established in the year 1962, was the first school founded by the Sheng Kung Hui Diocese of Hong Kong and Macao, with the aim of providing a balanced education based on Christian love to youngsters, whatever their family background. Through years of endeavors, our school has been recognized as a remarkable school dedicated to academic excellence, the formation of Christian values and the development of the whole person. I am thrilled to be able to be part of this proud tradition: remaining as a subsidized school, serving the whole community despite their family background, providing education for academic excellence and nurturing students with Christian virtues.
