校長的話

  中國諺語「一年之計在於春,一日之計在於晨,一生之計在於勤。」是非常值得我們思考的一種人生態度。「計」即是計劃、規劃,例如讀書計劃,創業計劃,婚姻計劃,生育計劃,退休計劃等,都是一種人生的準備,也有着把握時機,及早行動的意義。現代教育強調訂立目標的重要,也常常重視生涯規劃,因此我們若懂得把握住每一天的時間,掌握住每一年的行動,持守住這一生的心態,以「勤」推動自己的進步,我們就能一步一步向自己目標邁進,過美好充實的人生,不言後悔。

 

在信主的人看來,這句中國諺語還可以改為更高一個層次:「一日之計在於晨,一年之計在於春,一生之計在於神」。每一個人的生命都有上帝的安排與計劃,也有祂美好的旨意,問題是我們能否抓住上帝的應許,發掘一己潛藏的天資,修養己身,以善為念。因此,訂立適合自己的學習目標及人生目標非常重要,唯有腳踏實地努力增值上進,建立有規律的生活習慣及作息常規,參加不同崗位、課外活動及服務,發揮潛能,才能活出像主耶穌一般美好的樣式,樂助社群,愛己及人。

 

本校的校訓是「仁愛忠誠」,如何做到「忠誠為主,仁愛待人」,這是一門非常不易的功課,而我們可以先從家庭做起,孝順父母親人,幫手家務,這是第一步;有禮貌,關懷別人需要,培養行善的習慣,這是其次;如何訂立人生目標,每天作最好準備與心態上課,以真以誠尊敬師長,愛護同學,這是更進一步的學習;再而尋索人生理想、追求真善美,貢獻自己造福社群,就是更遠大的理想。

本年度本校關注事項是透過促進學生協作以鞏固學生積極學習,以及讓學生展現忠心的特質,這是同學建立學習習慣及與同儕合作成長的良好機會,也是成就同學品格教育的台階。「沒有品格,教育只完成一半」,只有成績好,並不能確保孩子成為出色的人,也不會令他們必定過幸福的人生。因此,培養好孩子不僅是成績好,還要陶冶「人格」。期望「蔡功譜人」有美好的品格及生命素質,做到愛己(責任感、專注、節制)、愛親(孝道、尊重、同情)、愛鄰(饒恕、服務、忍耐)、誠實(誠懇、深思、勇敢)、正直(慎重、可靠、公正)、忠心(謙卑、順服、信心),成為社會洪流中的清泉,也成為上主美好的見證。

“Spring is the best start to the year; morning is the best start to the day; diligence is the linchpin of one’s life.” This Chinese proverb reflects an attitude that is worth integrating into all aspects of our lives. Not only does it encourage us to seize the day and grasp opportunities, it also reflects the importance of planning. Whether it be planning for study, career, marriage, birth, or retirement, we are reminded that by planning early we ensure our ability to respond to changes in our lives. Planning for these important milestones is the best way in which we can prepare for whatever our lives may bring. Modern education emphasises the importance of goal-setting, and often reinforces the importance of career planning. If we can make the most of each day by managing our pursuits and motivating ourselves to improve with “diligence”, we can progress towards our goals, and live a beautiful and fulfilling life without regret.

 

In the eyes of a follower of Christ, this Chinese proverb can be considered on a higher, more spiritual, level – “Spring is the best start to the year; morning is the best start to  the day; God is the linchpin of one’s life.” Everyone’s life is determined by God’s arrangements and good will. The question is, can we succeed in taking hold of the promises of God, discovering and treasuring our talents, continuing to nurture ourselves, and truly believing in goodness? To achieve these moral aspirations, it is vitally important to set learning and life goals that best suit ourselves as individuals. Only by working hard to add value to our own being, establishing regular habits and routines that further our development, participating in extracurricular activities and services in our community, and developing our potentials, can we live a life as beautiful as Lord Jesus.

 

The motto of our school is “Charity & Faithfulness”. Both are very profound values that guide us to be “Faithful to God and charitable to man”. Our school is devoted to instilling these principles in our students by placing them at the forefront of our daily lives. As we live by these values, we can continue to be polite, care for others’ needs, and sustain a habit of doing good deeds. What’s more, by committing ourselves to our further studies we can learn how to set and achieve personalised life goals, respect teachers with sincerity, and care for classmates. We can live by these values in our family lives, too. By being filial and helping with housework and household duties, we can express our care and respect for our loved ones. In a higher regard, living by these values gives us the means and courage to search for our true purposes in life. It allows us to pursue truth, goodness and beauty, and contribute to the success of our flourishing community. Indeed, these pursuits are mature in their nature, but are ones which we encourage our students to aspire to.

 

In the coming academic year, one of the school’s main concerns will be to promote student collaboration in order to fully engage with active learning. We believe that by nurturing effective collaborative skills we can instil loyalty and integrity into our students. Furthermore, it will provide fruitful opportunities to build, develop, and hone learning habits whilst maturing with peers. We trust that it may serve as a stepping stone for achieving students’ moral education goals.

 

“Without good character, education is only half done.”

 

Good grades alone do not guarantee absolute achievement; nor are they the solitary factor in finding true happiness. Nurturing personalities, values, and spirit is of equal importance. I sincerely hope that ‘TKPers’ can develop their own individual characters and continue to improve their own quality of life, as well as the lives of those around them. We should love ourselves through responsibility, attentiveness, and temperance; love our families and friends through filial piety, respect, and compassion; and love our neighbours through forgiveness, service, and patience. We should also be honest with sincerity, reflection, and boldness; have integrity with circumspection, trustworthiness, and justice; and be loyal with humility, obedience, and faith. I aspire for you to be the ‘clear spring’ in the torrent of society, and be beautiful witnesses of God.

2017 is the celebratory year of the 35th anniversary of S.K.H. Tsoi Kung Po Secondary School (SKHTKPSS). Under the guidance of previous supervisors, council members, principals and all co-workers who have contributed selflessly, and alongside the generous support of the Tsoi Kung Po family, the school has been able to nurture students in the district of Ho Man Tin, and to help our students to shine in the community.

A series of celebratory activities were held, including Founders’ Day Thanksgiving Service and tea gathering, which was held on 28th April, 2017. On the day, The Right Reverend Dr. Timothy Kwok of Sheng Kung Hui Diocese of Eastern Kowloon gave a sermon. It was a joyous occasion as the school supervisor Mr. Lam Benjamin Huen, school management council members, former chairperson – The Right Reverend Louis Tsui, former principals and co-workers, people in the community, alumni, parents, teachers and students, and nearly a thousand attendees praised and worshiped together as well as reviewed and celebrated the history of the school.

On 8th July, 2017, our school invited Dr. Moses Cheng, the Chairperson of Insurance Authority and the legal advisor of Sheng Kung Hui, to be the Guest of Honor of the 31st Speech Day. At the ceremony, Dr. Cheng addressed the graduates with the four ‘self’s’: ‘self-learning’, ‘self-confidence’, ‘self-respect’ and ‘self-discipline’. SKHTKPSS strives in guiding students to be successful self-learners. The four ‘self’s’ from Dr. Cheng is a great goal for teachers and students in the 2017-18 academic year to achieve in various aspects including academic learning, character building, self-improvement, a variety of services and skills development. To facilitate with the school’s enhancement in languages and multilateral cultural exchange, students will be able to utilize their potential capability with a globalized view of the world.

SKHTKPSS is a school that emphasizes on character building of all our students. We focus on character education during their six years of study. We encourage our students to learn the spirit of Jesus, ‘honesty and integrity’, become sincere, thoughtful and brave citizens; as well as to live a meticulous, reliable and righteous life. We reinforce the cooperation between the school and families. Parents and teachers will work collaboratively for the next generation in terms of education, providing all-rounded development, fostering true values, and building a positive philosophy and morality.

Looking into the future, SKHTKPSS will continuously progress in the areas of academics, character building, social, religious and family education. SKHTKPSS will become a learning place with love and harmony. With the virtue of the school motto “Faithful to God, Charitable to Man’’ being upheld, our students will have a holistic development, both academically and non-academically, which contributes to a more meaningful and fulfilling life. Thus, every teacher and student will be able to achieve a ‘Spectrum of Success’.

   踏入二零一六至二零一七學年,是聖公會蔡功譜中學建校三十五周年的日子。三十五年前,先聖先賢因基督的大愛,願意付出時間、心力、人力、物力,在忠孝街及牧愛街之間,建立中學;並承蒙蔡功譜家族的捐獻贊助,讓蔡功譜中學在何文田區屹立至今,造福莘莘學子。

感恩上帝的帶領,我能在這個富紀念性的日子加入蔡功譜這個大家庭。在歷任校長帶領之下,蔡功譜中學學生在學習成果、品格教育、自學精神、公開試成績、升學出路、自我增值及各項服務與潛能中都有非常突出的進步表現;全校教職員及校友導師協助學生各展所能,以身作則成為學生的生命榜樣,令學校三十五年來在社區中發光發熱,作為蔡功譜一份子,我感到與有榮焉。

「古之學者必有師」,老師肩負「傳道、授業、解惑」的責任,敬業愛生,以身作則,這正是教育工作者的理想與抱負。蔡功譜中學重視「教書」、「育人」及「靈命」工作,讓學生在校內學習及課外活動中關心世情、認識自我、珍視生命,從而建立良好的待人處事態度及正面的人生價值觀,有追求卓越的堅毅及勇氣,逆境自強,建立屬於自己的生命藍圖,盡展所長。

The commencement of the academic year 2016-2017 marks the 35th anniversary of S.K.H. Tsoi Kung Po Secondary School(SKHTKPSS). It all begins with the love of Jesus and the selfless contribution of the founders of establishing the school on the current site at Ho Man Tin. Together with the generous donation from Tsoi Kung Po’s family, the school is able to stand firm in the district of Ho Man Tin throughout the past 35 years, nurturing countless students.

With the guidance from God, it is such a blessing for me to join the big family of SKHTKPSS at this momentous occasion. Students of SKHTKPSS have been performing well in terms of academic learning and public exams, character building, self-learning, career development, self-improvement and all other realms under the guidance of previous principals. Our teachers and alumni also play a significant role in fostering the development of our students in different aspects and setting good examples and for students to follow. Without them, SKHTKPSS would not be able to continue to shine in the community, and I am really proud to be one of the members of SKHTKPSS.

As the old saying goes, “Every learner must be inspired by a teacher”. Teachers shoulder the responsibilities of “delivering, teaching and explaining”. Indeed, teaching with passion and becoming the role model of students are always the aspirations of teachers. By focusing on academic, personal and spiritual development, SKHTKPSS provides our students ample opportunitiesto be more concernabout our society, discover more about themselves, treasure life, develop good interpersonal skills and positive attributes through classroom learning and participating in various extra-curricular activities. With perseverance and courage, students would be able to cope with adversity and map out their own life plans to fully utilize their skills.

Looking into the future, SKHTKPSS would put more emphasis on languages, students’ learning efficiency and multilateral cultural exchange so as to equip our students with a globalized view of the world. By enhancing the collaboration between academic, character, social, religious and family education, SKHTKPSS will become a learning place with love and harmony. With the virtue of the school motto “Faithful to God, Charitable to Man” being upheld, our students will have a holistic development, both academically and non-academically. They will learn to be innovative, appreciative and self-reflecting, which are the core ingredients to living a more meaningful and fulfilling life.
