幼小銜接方面，過去三年疫情的影響，我們深深感受到即將升上小一的同學有需要得到更大的支援，所以，學校參加了教育大同的「感 · 創 · 做」全方位價值承傳計劃，我們利用常識科做切入點，並安排大量活動，好讓學生能「從做中學習」，從而建立正確態度及學習不同的生活技能，提升學生的學習興趣及加強對校園生活的適應力及歸屬感。
Dear Parents/Guardians, Teachers, Staff and Students,
It is a precious and remarkable year for me to have served in Buddhist Wing Yan School, witnessing our teachers’ and parents’ continuous dedication to our school. Given the challenges arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, our teachers have been striving collaboratively to provide our students with quality education through optimising the school-based curriculum and organising diversified learning activities.
In the coming school year, we will continue to enhance our school curriculum and assessment policy, such as working with EDB and tertiary institutions by joining different school-based support services to improve our teaching, learning and assessment systems. To strengthen students’ creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving skills, our STEM, astronomy and environmental protection courses will be further developed. The school examination will be held three times to create more room for learning and sustainable feedback, such as diversified formative assessments. There will be three native English teachers to help enrich our English learning atmosphere. English activities will be held regularly to motivate our students in communicating in English.
To echo our school’s value and Buddhist education, classes like ‘Mindfulness Matters’ and positive meditation courses by Hong Kong Buddhist Association are refined constantly to foster students’ positive attitudes. Our Gifted Education Team and Moral and Civic Education Team cooperate to develop student’ good character traits such as resilience, courage, enthusiasm and hope through moral education workshops. We are also building up our school-based curriculum related to well-being, in which students can appreciate one another’s talents and strengths and apply them in their daily lives, for instance, through the interactive art exhibition with the theme of wellness and gratitude.
To ensure our P1 students’ smooth transition from kindergarten to primary school especially under the pandemic these years, we have joined Jockey Club’s ‘Learning By Doing’ Academy. We have started with General Studies, which introduces students to different activities to learn by doing. It benefits our students a great deal by establishing their basic life skills and positive attitudes; it helps with their adaptation to the new environment, enhances their motivation in learning and sense of belonging to our family.
Our school has been awarded under Caring School Award Scheme for years as our students are polite and sincere to teachers, staff members and their peers. They are highly engaged not only in lessons but also in services to the community in response to our school motto, ‘To illumine wisdom and manifest compassion’. Through joining various inter-school competitions and winning many prizes, Wing Yanians have proved their talents, hard work and perseverance especially in challenging times. Many have won prizes in academic, STEM and sports contests, such as the second runner-up in the Artificial Intelligence Programming Contest held by HKITEC, first and second prizes in the nationwide language contest held by HKCHS, Awards for Outstanding Director, Script, Cooperation, Stage Effect, Overall Performance and Performers in the Hong Kong School Drama Festival (English Group).
With the efforts of our teachers and students, our school has gradually become well-known as a ‘Fun’ school, meaning ‘enjoyable and exciting’ in English, while in Chinese pronunciation ‘Fun’ could refer to ‘marks’ or ‘atmosphere’. We aim to help our Wing Yanians, throughout their six remarkable years, to have great improvement and achievements while enjoying the process in our learning and caring atmosphere.
