My fellow students,

各位中六級同學:


還記得我在開學日和你們分享的一個數字嗎?還記得31,536,000秒嗎?9月1日至今,已過了187天,即16,156,800秒。


試想想在這16,156,800秒中……

 你怎樣渡過這些日子?

 你的身體健康嗎?睡眠質素好嗎?

 已消失的16,156,800秒有沒有為你帶來改變?

 學業上,你有沒有進步?有沒有學到新的知識和技能?

 品格上,你有沒有變得更有責任感、更懂尊重別人、更樂於助人?

 人際關係上,與家人、同學、朋友的關係變得更緊密和諧嗎?還是變得更疏離?

 性格上,有没有變得更快樂、更樂觀、更積極?

 你有沒有變得更加關心社會、關心國家、關心我們的地球?

 你有沒有發展自己的興趣、潛能和強項?

 你有沒有利用這些日子追尋自己的夢想?


公開試將至,我相信這個考試定為大家帶來不少壓力。前路茫茫,你可能會感到焦慮、徬徨和不安。面對挑戰時,有人選擇逃避和放棄,也有人選擇積極面對。我和你們同樣在求學時期經歷無數個大大小小的測驗和考試,我曾經因為準備不足而選擇放棄,也試過咬緊牙關、努力不懈,最終取得好成績。


我曾經以為高分數和高學歷就是成功,後來才發現學歷並不代表實力,分數和等級亦不能反映一個人的修養和品格。他日在職場內,成績和等級不再是評核成敗的單一標準。各位同學,不要讓一張成績單定義你的價值和意義,不要讓分數和等級限制你去追尋自己的夢想!


上述一番話,不是鼓勵你們隨隨便便地應付公開試,更不是認為學習沒有用處。因為今天最有前途和最受歡迎的工作及行業,大多在二十年前根本尚未出現。未來的新發現有機會推翻我們一直認為是對的理論,而成為新知識。因此,終身學習及不斷增值自己才能應付變化萬千的社會。希望你們明白努力求學背後的真正意義:透過老師的教導,並在不斷成和敗的歷練中塑造理想的自己,追求真理、公義和愛德,讓生命活得豐盛和有意義。過程中,你需要不斷付出,不斷改善,不斷努力,面對眼前的失敗,站起來,再失敗,再站起來,直至實現夢想。


同學們,求學不是求分數,而是建立個人質素,學校每天的教導是栽培你具備堅毅、有愛心、懂感恩及樂於助人等素質。學歷和才能只是決定你能否更容易投身某個行業的入場券,但優秀的品格才可決定你於職場的發展與成就。



中學畢業是一個階段的結束,亦代表著各位同學人生另一個階段的開始。無論大家的前路如何,校長和老師都向你送上無限的祝福。在校長眼中,你們都充滿潛能,只要在對的舞台上定能發揮才華,為自己的未來創造價值。不要因為別人小看你的潛能而放棄,只要努力改善自己,不斷進步,當機會到來,你定能展翅飛翔!


能成為你們畢業年的校長,我感到非常幸運!能見證你們畢業的一刻,更是我的榮幸!此外,我非常感謝在學業上、人生道路上陪伴你們成長的老師們!相信大家在伍少梅共同創造了不少美好的回憶,而你們的成長歲月亦已成為伍少梅中學的一部份!學校以你們不斷成長與進步為榮!


願天父保守各人前路平安!


你的校長

My fellow students,

Do you remember the number I shared with all of you on the first school day?

Thirty-one million five hundred and thirty-six thousand seconds. From that day

to today, 187 days has gone, which is like sixteen million one hundred fifty-six

thousand and eight hundred seconds. Try to ask yourself the following

questions:

- How did you spend those days?

- Did you get healthier? Did you sleep better at night?

- Did you make any changes with those vanished sixteen million one

hundred fifty-six thousand and eight hundred seconds?

- Did you get any better on your studies? Did you get to learn any new

knowledge or technique?

- Have you become a better person? More responsible? Getting to know

how to respect and help others?

- How about your interpersonal relationship? Did you get closer with your

family, your classmates and your friends? Or actually getting worse?

- Did you get to be happier, more optimistic and proactive?

- Did you care more about our society, our country and also our planet?

- Did you develop your own hobby, strength? Or to achieve your potential?

- Did you make good use of those days to chase your dreams?

The public exam is coming and I know this would put you under a lot of

stress because you would feel anxious, hesitated and uneasy because you have to

think about and make decisions for your future. With the challenges ahead, some

choose to be a quitter; some choose to face it and try to overcome it. I have been

there – I also had to face countless examinations and tests when I was a student

like you. I did once choose to quit just because I wasn’t well prepared for the

challenge; I did do good on my school work by putting every effort in it.

I used to think having good scores and higher educational qualifications

mean being successful in life, but I then found out that this is not the fact. The

fact is, your educational background does not reflect your full abilities; your

scores and grades do not also reflect your moral accomplishments and

personalities. In the future, we won’t just define success in only one particular

way anymore. My fellow students, don’t just define yourself by your academic

results; don’t let your scores and grades stop you from chasing your dreams.

What I have just said doesn’t mean not to put all your effort into the public

exam, or learning isn’t important, but to understand the true meanings behind

learning from your teachers – to define yourself by experiencing successes and

failures, to pursues righteousness, truth and love in order to find life, prosperity

and meanings. Try to think about the hottest, the most popular jobs we have

nowadays, they actually didn’t exist in 20 years ago! Every day we have new

discovery, so every day we have a chance to refute the old theories and have new

knowledge. By doing so, you have to keep giving, improving and working

hard. In order to face and conquer your failures, you have to get up, then fail

again, then get up and try again until you make your dreams come true.


Learning is more than scoring, and also developing your personal qualities.

We, all our teachers, are here to help you become a dauntless, caring, thankful

and helpful person. Your qualification is like an admission to different fields but

your personalities and moralities define your development path in future.

Graduating from high school is an end, but it’s also a start of your upcoming

new life. No matter what lies in your future path, we, all our faculty members,

will still be here to wish all the best for you. In my eyes, you all have got a lot of

potential, so if you are on the right track, you will definitely achieve your full

potential and shine. Don’t just quit if others look down at you for not having a

great accomplishment, but to improve and equip yourself. When the chance is

here, you, if you are well prepared, will shine and fly.

I am lucky to have all of you as my students; I am honored to see you all

graduating from our school. I am also grateful to all our teachers for being a

companion and guide in all of your lives. We all have gone though a lot together,

and all of your memories and bygones are now part of our school. We all are and

will always be proud of you when you make any progress in your life.

May the Lord look on you with favor and give you peace.


Your principal,

Kin Man
