It is my honour to be one of the members of the Lung Kong World Federation Ltd. Lau Tak Yung (LTY) Memorial Primary School Family. Thank you so much for the support from the Supervisor Mr. Cheng. Also, I want to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to the Principal Mr. So who always shares his experiences with all of us. His wisdom and leadership make all the staff and teachers fill with solicitude and positivity to contribute to education. To succeed the post of the Principal, I promise I will try my best to make the school become popular and ensure that everyone loves going to school to learn.
To excavate students’potential and treasure every single possibility
The essence of education is to excavate the potential of every single student. This can provide different platforms to let students know more about themselves and develop their talents. There are thousands of paths for students to choose. They need to choose the one they like to build their bright future.
I used to teach English and Physical Education (PE). I have been working in the primary sector for over 20 years. I was seconded to Education Bureau to help some primary schools in Hong Kong and China develop the English school-based curriculum. I accumulated lots of precious experience in administration, pedagogies and curriculum adaptation. I believe that there is no student who can’t be taught. However, teachers have to find a suitable pedagogy to teach students and they will learn effectively. Therefore, I took my second master degree called Master of Applied Theatre and Drama Education which can put the concept of ‘learning-by-doing’ into practice. Learning English through drama can arouse students’ interest to learn. It can help students have a new perspective to learn English and reduce the phobia of learning English.
To build caring culture and harmonious environment
LTY has a very rich caring atmosphere. Principal, teachers and parents promote positive education. Encouragement and appreciation can ensure students’ performance excels in different aspects and can make students accept advice willingly. More appreciation, thanksgiving and introspection can enhance the spirit of reciprocal affection to create a harmonious campus. Hence, every single student loves going to school to learn. That is exactly the vision we pursue.
經歷為本 小班教學 To provide experience-oriented and small class teaching
LTY always emphasizes to ‘touch’ the knowledge and let students learn from abstract to concrete. It is precious to know how to think and raise out the questions compared with listening to teachers to learn only. When the participation and contribution of students is valued, peer interaction will be increased. The motivation and environment of learning are the key elements to increase the effectiveness of learning. We totally believe that building up a superior language learning environment can provide more opportunities to learn language. It can also enhance their learning interest efficiently. The element of Drama education will be incorporated into the curriculum. Small class teaching is an advantage for catering for learners’ diversities. Students can learn with quality in the learning process through ‘Tripartite Model’. The classroom will be activated through participation and cooperation.
與時並進 迎接轉變 To move with the time and face up to changes
Information Technology (IT) is a must in learning nowadays especially in self-regulated domain. We encourage our students to jump out from the limitation of the textbooks. For instance, the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) curriculum is rapidly developed. It can cultivate students innovative thinking allowing the students to apply what they have learnt to their daily lives. All these advanced knowledge can stimulate students to step out to overtake the pace of an epoch.
拓闊視野 放眼世界 To broaden students’horizons and connect with the world
There is no exaggeration of the importance of study tours outside Hong Kong. We hope to broaden students’ horizons by running out from the classroom to ‘experience’ the world. Thus, students can understand the connection between themselves and the society or the world. They will become more mature and independent. The world changes from day to day but the enthusiasm of being an educator never fades. We have an outstanding teaching team which is willing to change for an improvement. More importantly, our team want to motivate our students to learn meaningfully and effectively. Through focusing on a variety of subjects such as academics, sports and art, their potential to contribute to the society is beyond comprehension.
