Principal's Message (校长发言)
Principal’s Foreword 2017
It is my pleasure to welcome our Sec 1 students as the latest members to the HI family. May you find the next four to five years a meaningful and memorable time of learning and growth. I would also like to welcome the Sec 2 to 5 students back for yet another year of learning and growth with your teachers and friends. There will be new challenges and opportunities for you as you continue to strengthen your ties with one another, and make new ones.
Your journey may not be easy, yet we should not give up when we encounter difficult times. Education begins with each of us having a receptive heart to seek and learn whatever that you need to grow into a person with the courage to lead, and the compassion to serve. HIHS aims to provide a supporting environment to help you in this regard. Your purpose in HIHS is to strive to excel in all areas, be it academic or co-curricular areas. This ought to be, because doing excellent work will give you a sense of pride. We also want you to learn to care, and to demonstrate care through service, because we believe that an educated mind leads to visible behavior, attitudes and actions that benefit those within the community. Our efforts in HIHS are aimed at developing students’ character in whatever they do.
Take this year as an opportunity for you to find out more about who you are and what you stand for. Learn to be curious in what you are going to learn, and be interested in who you will be interacting with. My staff and I will accompany you and provide opportunities and experiences to learn. The experiences you have for this year belong to you alone, and they will shape you into the HI student who has the courage to lead, and the compassion to serve.
We are very excited about 2017, because we will be celebrating the school’s 125th anniversary. There will be several events throughout the year when the whole school will come together to remember and celebrate what HIHS stands for. I hope all stakeholders will join the school in celebrating this occasion together.
With God’s blessings,
