校長的話(十九)
珍惜現在 ‧ 擁抱未來

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

水思源

        佛教葉紀南紀念中學自1978年創校至今已有四十五年歷史,但疫情肆虐,究竟應否舉辦45周年校慶活動呢?在抗疫這段艱難的日子裏,人與人的接觸減少了,整體社會氛圍也顯得低迷,猶幸近日疫情稍緩,我認為是凝聚一眾師生、校友及家長的好時機,讓我們一同回顧葉中過去四十五年的發展歷程。45周年校慶正是去蕪存菁,共同籌劃將來的里程碑。近年校園增添了不少新設施,包括:改建圖書館、增建演講廳、習文館、英語角、數學教學中心;優化地下大堂、設立學生成就展示牆、校史廊、視藝廊、薪火相傳、漂書角及蘭亭聚等地方,這些新設置不但可以優化校園環境,亦能提升學生的學習效能。學校的改善及優化工程有賴一眾有心的社會賢達、家長及校友們的慷慨解囊,讓葉中能以今日嶄新的面貌迎接豐碩的未來。我很想藉校慶活動的機會,讓同學們知道「幸福非必然」,並學習常懷感恩的心及飲水思源的道理,珍惜這些得來不易的學習資源。

 

回顧過去     

四十五年來的匆匆歲月,見證著葉中的成長,當中有老師孜孜不倦的教導,有同學的力學不倦,還有家長們殷切的期望和支持。猶記得2018年葉中40周年校慶活動,其中令人頗難忘的一個活動,要算是全校「砌圖」了。當天全校總動員,在球場上拼貼了「YKN40」5個大字,清楚表達出一個訊息:學校是由學生、家長、老師、校友及職工等人一同建構的大家庭,各持分者缺一不可。舉行校慶正好提醒我們,學校能穩步發展至今,是每一位曾付出過的人的功勞,是他們共同奠定了「葉紀南」穩固而紮實的根基。

 

展望將來

        四十五年時光雖然不短,但以學校發展的歷程來說仍很「年青」,在未來的日子,學校將面對很多挑戰,包括社會人口結構性的改變、學習模式的轉變及社會人士對教育的期望等。我深信辦學團體及法團校董會在我們已有的基礎上,定必能帶領學校排除萬難、繼續前進。佛教葉紀南紀念中學在未來的日子定可再創高

峰,為葵青區的莘莘學子提供優質的教育,育德育才,助他們迎接未來各項的挑戰。

 

        希望大家把握這個難得的45周年校慶時刻,全情投入,齊為學校校慶活動添上姿采。

Cherish the Present - Embrace the Future

 

 

Gratitude for Blessings

Buddhist Yip Kei Nam Memorial College has a history of 45 years since its establishment in 1978. However, as the epidemic is raging, should we organize the 45th anniversary celebration? During the difficult days of fighting the epidemic, the contacts between people have decreased, and the overall social atmosphere is also sluggish. Fortunately, the epidemic has recently slowed down, so I think it is a good time to gather together teachers, students, alumni and parents and let us review the development of YKN in the past 45 years. The 45th anniversary celebration is just a milestone for us to plan for the future together. In recent years, many new facilities have been added to the campus, including: renovating the library, building an additional theatre, Chinese Study Room, English Corner, and Mathematics Teaching Hub; optimizing the lobby on ground floor, setting up Student Achievement Display Wall, School History Gallery, Visual Art Gallery, Passing On, English Reading Corner, Orchid Pavilion and so on. Not only can these new settings optimize the campus environment, but they also improve the learning efficiency of students. The improvement and optimization project of the school depends on the generosity of all caring social leaders, parents and alumni so that YKN can welcome a fruitful future with a new look today. I really want to take the opportunity of the school celebration to let the students know that "happiness is not inevitable", learn the principle of being grateful for the blessings and cherish these hard-won learning resources.

 

Looking back at Past

Over the past 45 years, YKN has witnessed its growth, including the tireless teaching of teachers, the industrious classmates, and the ardent expectations and rapport of parents. I still remember YKN's 40th anniversary celebration activities in 2018. One of the most memorable activities was the whole school's "Jigsaw Puzzle". On that day, the whole school was mobilized, and the five characters of "YKN40" were collaged on the playground, clearly expressing a message: the school is a big family built by students, parents, teachers, alumni and staff, and all stakeholders are indispensable. The holding of the school celebration just reminds us that the steady development of the school is due to the credit of everyone who has contributed, and they are the people who have jointly laid the solid foundation of "YKN".

 

Looking to the Future

45 years is not a short period of time, but it is still "young" in terms of the school's development. In the days to come, the school will face many challenges, including changes in social demographics, learning models, social life, educational expectations, etc., so I firmly believe that the school sponsoring body and the IMC will be able to lead the school to overcome all difficulties and move forward on the basis of our existing foundation. Buddhist Yip Kei Nam Memorial College will surely achieve new heights in the future, providing high-quality education for the students in Kwai Tsing District, cultivating morality and talents, and helping them meet the challenges of the future.

 

I hope that everyone will take advantage of this rare moment of the 45th anniversary of the school, devote themselves wholeheartedly, and add charm to the school's celebration activities.
