The Headmistress’ Message

Thank you message

Ms. CHUNG Po-loi


      I still recall how I felt when I was appointed headmistress of POCA Wan Ho Kan Primary School (WHK) last year. I was overwhelmed by a sense of honour, excitement and anticipation – today I am just as overwhelmed, if not more. It is indeed a privilege to have worked with the teachers and staff at WHK, where we have together weathered challenges and achieved milestones one after the other, from the 20th Anniversary Kick-off Ceremony, Chinese Culture Day Cum Poon Choi Banquet, Establishment of Alumni Association to the production of 20th Anniversary Drama, Smart kids from WHK Star, etc. These accomplishments would not have been possible without concerted efforts and unswerving support from all the teachers, parents and students. I am deeply grateful for the trust the IMC and each of you have placed in me and the unfailing support you have rendered me all along.


      This year marks the 21st Anniversary of our school. For the past two decades, we have been offering students whole-person development. We foster academic excellence while emphasizing on the physical and aesthetic development of our students in order to help them become a healthy new generation. Besides, cultivating students' positive values and attitudes, developing a healthy lifestyle and positive belief in life are also among the goals of our school curriculum.


      Having said that, I understand a lot more still needs to be done in fulfilling our mission and vision. As a young, thriving school with a primary focus on teacher professional development and students' needs, our school plays a very important role in nurturing our next generation. To this end, I invite and welcome your new ideas, invaluable inputs and active participation in our ongoing pursuit of excellence in the years to come.

The Headmistress’ Message

Ms. CHUNG Po-loi

 

    Our parents and students, I would like to send you my warmest regards. I am very pleased to join the big family of Po On Commercial Association Wan Ho Kan Primary School. By attending the 19th graduation ceremony, I enjoyed the opportunity of having the first close encounter with the young masters of our school. I am aware of the fact that our school can nurture students to become versatile and brave to attempt. I am very honored and grateful to be the third headmistress of the school and to extend the services of my predecessors, Mr Lee Shek Man and Ms Louie Po Sheung.

 

    Students are the future masters of our society and now also the young masters of our school. That is why education should cater for students’ needs. What is “student-centered education”? It means we believe in their gifts and provide them a free, diversified and fair learning environment to develop their potential. Moreover, if we can realize the learning motto of WHKPS(Wan Ho Kan Primary School), the effect of learning and teaching will be surprising!

 

Wish ─ We need to have wishes, not to give up or retreat easily. As teachers, we have expectations of our students. We nurture them with our heart and make their potential flourish.

 

Humility ─ There is one idiom saying, “Apart from hard work, a successful person should show humility as well”. That is why we have “Humility” in our school motto, which means the adoption of humility as a sort of self-discipline and honesty as our guiding principle.

 

Knowledge ─ Knowledge is the torch of wisdom and we should be devoted to knowledge and truth.

 

Prudence ─ Prudence in thoughts and readiness in deeds is a good attitude for study and work. If we act prudently in the community, the idea of our school motto─“Prudence in thought and readiness in deed, with care and concern for society” can be realized.

 

Self-enhancement ─Even in adversity, you may keep up and advance with times in order to become a strong person. That is what “times” in our school motto hints.

 

    Education is a career relating to the cultivation of children’s life and it is a time-consuming but meaningful project. To make dreams come true, apart from the required courage and perseverance, we still need the support of every party for development and success. I sincerely wish that all our colleagues and parents can work together to create a better learning environment for our next generation. We have to uphold our school motto “Respect, Humility, Progress and Sensitivity” for equipping our children to be the future masters of our society.
