蘇浙公學第五十八屆畢業典禮

方仲倫校長校務報告

二零一七年十二月六日

李處長、周會長、朱主席、王校監、各位校董、各位會董、各位嘉賓、各位老師、各位同學︰

今天本校舉行第五十八屆畢業典禮,承蒙本校校友、香港民航處處長李天柱太平紳士蒞臨主禮,各位嘉賓撥冗參加,令這個典禮倍添光彩,本人謹致衷心感謝。本人藉今天這個機會,向各位作簡要的校務報告。

對本校來說,過去一年是平穩進步的一年。本校直資部同學參加香港中學文憑考試,取得與全港平均相若的合格率。近年來,個別入讀本校中一的同學雖然學業基礎較薄弱,但經老師們多年的悉心教導,同學大多能以中等或以上的成績,開始下一階段的學習。以上學年為例,畢業同學取得本校自中學文憑考試以來的最佳增值成績,英國語文及核心四科取得第八級,最佳五科、中國語文及數學分別取得第七級,通識教育第六級,超過85%的畢業同學在本港或海外修讀學士學位或副學士學位課程,實踐本校學生守則中「自強不息」的精神。過去一年亦是本校國際部成功的一年。教師隊伍日益壯大,學生人數不斷上升。本校十三年級同學於國際文憑預科考試成績理想,再一次取得100%的合格率,超過30%的同學取得40分或以上的優異成績,悉數升讀國際或本港知名大學。同樣令人欣喜的是十一年級同學參加國際普通中學教育文憑考試(IGCSE),同樣取得100%的合格率,而考獲A至A*級及C至A*級則分別為50%及88%。最佳成績的同學更考獲十一科A或A*的成績。兩部同學的優良成績,實在是對多年來無私付出的老師們的最佳回報。

在課外活動方面,本校直資部同學去年在公開及校際比賽,繼續獲得上佳成績。本校鼓隊除在「2017香港步操樂隊節全港步操樂隊邀請賽」中囊括十一獎項外,更於「2017香港國際青年步操樂隊亞洲錦標賽」取得兩冠一亞的成績,見證本校鼓隊水平躋身亞洲青年鼓隊前列。本校的男女子羽毛球隊亦於學界羽毛球錦標賽分別摘下冠、亞軍,穩佔學界翹楚位置。國際部同學的表現亦不遑多讓︰足球隊獲得香港國際學校學界比賽U20組男子冠軍,曲棍球隊獲得男女子混合組冠軍及女子聯賽冠軍。第十二班麥浩寧同學作為香港代表隊的一員,除於香港學界體育聯會的比賽中獲得甲組男子佩劍冠軍外,亦於全港的公開比賽中摘下亞軍;第十一班楊世毓同學參加香港國際學校學界體育聯會劍術比賽,獲得公開組重劍冠軍。此外,本校同學在獅藝、空手道、朗誦、戲劇、田徑、籃球、舞蹈、交通安全隊步操、堆沙及設計比賽等均維持一貫水平,在比賽中贏得不少獎項及榮譽。以上種種,足以顯示本校同學在學業以外不同範疇的潛質及多年努力後的成果。

品德教育向來都是本校的關注重點。上學年,本校以「培育學生認識自我,建立良好人際關係」為德育主要關注項目。特別安排同學寫「雙週記」,讓學生抒發個人感受及看法;又舉辦「午間天才表演」及「生日會」等,鼓勵學生表演個人才藝,提高學生的自我認識,從而提升個人的「整體滿足感」,再進一步加強學生與朋輩及師生關係。就觀察所得,各項活動頗具成效。從學生及家長的持分者問卷調查中相關題目的得分顯示,同學心目中的師生關係、對學校的歸屬感及整體滿足感都有顯著的提升。

各位畢業同學,中學畢業是一個學習階段的結束,同時也是一個新階段的開始。教育是一個「學會學習」的過程,你們必須以終身學習的態度,加上恆心和毅力,為你們的目標而奮鬥。期望大家能本著「整齊嚴肅」的做人處事態度,積極奮進,力爭上游,向今天的主禮嘉賓李處長學習,將來能造福人群,服務社會,報效國家。

最後,本人要藉此機會衷心感謝校董會主席、校監及各位校董對本人的指導、信任和支持;各位教職員工的充分合作,使校務得以順利推行;再一次感謝李處長蒞臨主禮及各嘉賓參與盛會。祝各位畢業同學鵬程萬里,各位來賓身心康泰。謝謝。

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

School Report by Mr. C. L. Fong, the Principal

At the 58th Graduation Ceremony

Kiangsu-Chekiang College

On December 6, 2017

 

Mr. Li, Mr. Hsu, Mr. Chu, Mr. Wong, Members of the School Management Committee, Directors of the Association, Distinguished Guests, Teachers and Students,

 

Today, we are pleased to have our alumnus Mr. Simon Li, JP, Director-General of Civil Aviation of the HKSAR, officiate at our school’s 58th Graduation Ceremony.  I would also like to express my heartfelt thanks to all guests for taking the time to attend this ceremony.  Taking this opportunity, I would like to make a brief report on our school’s performance in the past year.

 

We made steady progress in the previous school year.  For the DSS section, the passing rate of our students who sat in 2017 HKDSE was similar to that of the territory-wide average rate.  Over the years, our teachers had put forth great effort in teaching all students, including those with weak foundation since they were enrolled in Secondary 1.  We are very glad that most graduates were able to achieve average or above results, continuing their studies afterwards.  Furthermore, our school achieved the highest academic-value added since HKDSE first started.  English and the core four subjects scored 8, the best five subjects, Chinese and Mathematics scored 7 respectively, while Liberal Studies scored 6.   Over 85% of our graduates are continuing their studies either in local or overseas tertiary institutions, enrolled in bachelor or associate degree programs.  This fully demonstrates our graduates’ unremitting efforts to improve oneself and their spirit to continuously make new progress.

 

As for the International Section, the past year has been a year with accomplishment.  Not only our teacher team is growing, our student number is also increasing.  Year 13 students’ results in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program were very satisfactory, once again attaining overall 100% pass rate.  Over 30% of the graduates scored 40 or above, all admitted to renowned universities both at home and abroad.  Our Year 11 students’ results in the International General Certificate of Secondary Education Examination (IGCSE) were also gratifying, with an overall 100% pass rate.   50% of students scored A * and A, and 88% of them scored A * to C.  The best student even scored A * or A in eleven subjects.  To teachers of both sections who have cared and guided our graduates throughout their school years, these scores are the best evidence of their hard work.

 

For extra-curricular activities, our students in the DSS section achieved excellent results.  Besides gaining 11 titles in the ‘2017 Hong Kong Marching Band Festival Invitational Marching Band Competition’, our Girls Drum Band won one gold and two silvers in the ‘2017 International Youth Marching Band Competition Asia Championships’.  Our Girls Drum Band is within the top ranks of Asia’s youth marching bands.  Moreover, our Boys and Girls Badminton Team obtained the title of Champion and 1st runner-up in the Inter-school Badminton Championships respectively, taking a leading position among schools.   Our students of the International section were also as good as their counterparts in the DSS section.  Our Football Team won the U20 Men’s Group Champion of the Hong Kong International School Inter-school Competitions, and our Hockey Team was the Champion in both the Men-Women Mixed and Women’s League Championships.  Our Year 12’s Mattew Mak is a member of the Hong Kong Fencing Representative Team.  Besides winning the Champion in Men’s Saber in A Grade Competition organized by the Hong Kong School Sports and Federation, he also obtained 1st runner-up in Hong Kong’s Open Competitions.  And our Year 11’s Steven Yang also won the Men’s Epee Open Group Fencing Competition among International School organized by Hong Kong School Sports and Federation.  In addition, our students received various awards and prizes in Lion Dance, Karate, Speech Festival, Drama, Field and Tracks, Basketball, Dance, Road Safety Patrol, Sand Sculpture and Design Competitions.  The above show our students’ hard work and potential in other aspects aside from academic work.

 

Moral education has always been a focus of our school and ‘Develop student’s self-awareness, build up healthy interpersonal relationship’ was last year’s theme.  We encouraged students to express personal comments through their bi-weekly diaries, along with ‘Lunchtime Talent Show’ and ‘Birthday Celebration’. We provided daily opportunities for students to showcase their talents and potentials.  We hope that these activities could raise students’ self-awareness, build up their overall sense of satisfaction and strengthen their ties among peers and teachers.  As far as we observe, these activities were effective.

 

Dear graduates, the completion of secondary school education is not an end of one’s learning phase, but a beginning of another.  Education is a process of learning to learn.  We must embrace life-long learning, persist in what we do, and attain our life goals with perseverance.  Also, I hope every one of you will follow the motto of ‘Orderly and Respectful’ when dealing with matters in life.  Do your best, strive for excellence, be an asset to our society and serve it tomorrow.

 

May I express my sincere gratitude to Chairman of the School Management Committee, School Supervisor, and members of School Management Committee for their guidance, trust and support.  Moreover, the cooperation among teachers and staff had made my work smoother.  We would also like to thank Mr. Simon Li for officiating at the ceremony and posting a good model for the graduates.  Finally, my best wishes to the graduates and guests.  Thank you.
