Hong Wen School, founded in 1920, is a school with more than 100 years of history and continues to grow and flourish. It offers a distinctive education with emphasis placed on Chinese culture and heritage. Our mission of nurturing our students to be leaders of upright character and rooted in the Chinese culture guides us in our purpose of educating a Hong Wen student. We are guided by our school motto of Honesty, Perseverance, Diligence and Thrift, virtues that we want all our students to have.
In educating our next generations of learners to have upright character, our students must possess the strong moral compass and live out the school's values of Respect, Responsibility, Resilience, Integrity, Compassion and Excellence in their every day lives. In an ever changing and uncertain world, these values become even more important as they guide a person to continue to do the right things in the uncertain and volatile environment. While we anchored our students in strong values and Chinese heritage, we are mindful of the need to educate our students in managing and taking responsibility in the technological world, and to have the competencies, such as critical and inventive thinking, and communication skills to help them leap forward.
The Hong Wen education is one that encompasses the five domains of 德、智、体、群、美 where through activities and programmes, we strive to build the character of our students in body and mind. Through the acquisition of knowledge, our students do their best and learn to work in teams.
It takes a village to raise a child. Hong Wen School alone cannot do all these without the support of our School Management Committee, our School Alumni, our Parents and all partners in education.
I firmly believe that Hong Wen will continue to shine with the strong support of everyone in the second century of its history.
