Our school has a long and well-established tradition and culture which has helped to contribute to the continued success of St. Francis Xavier’s School, Tsuen Wan.We cherish our modest school ethos, close teacher-student relationships and the family spirit which exists.We aim to provide a whole-person education, and to allow and encourage our students to develop intellectually, morally, socially, physically and aesthetically.
I believe that there are many important elements in the development of young people, especially boys, who often mature more slowly than girls. Among these elements, I view teachers’ patience and their positive influences in and out of the classroom to be very important in the well-being and growth of students. Accordingly, I require all staff to treat students as the individuals they are. This necessarily involves applying different teaching methods on them, depending on the individual student’s situation and needs. Since the teacher-student relationship should not be restricted to the classroom, more contact between teachers and students outside the classroom is desirable as this can and will promote a better learning environment and result in greater teaching effectiveness.
I hope that parents feel safe sending their boys to our school, knowing that it is a nurturing and secure place for their child’s education.The school loves and values each student, and encourages each student to strive towards reaching his potential, while also preparing him for future challenges.Just like their parents, I have high academic hopes and expectations for the students. We want all our students to be well prepared and equipped to meet the needs of their future, and to be qualified to receive tertiary education, if that is their desire.
As an old boy of St. Francis Xavier’s, I feel the same as all old boys.I am proud to be a Xavierian.I will do my best to perfect the teaching of all my staff. I will shoulder the mission of the Marist Brothers and embrace their caring spirit.Through hard work and sincere commitment, I and all the staff will help continue the time honoured tradition of educational excellence provided at St.FrancisXavierSchool.
