Tai Po Sam Yuk Secondary School (TPSY) has been faithfully serving the young people and the community of the northern New Territories since its
establishment in 1956. This well-established tradition of service enables us to hold our heads high and at the same time drives us to reach out more
widely and serve with an even stronger commitment.

Thus, we are not resting on our laurels. Instead, we are always on our toes, and as a Christian school, we are also always on our knees looking for
innovative ideas and methods of application in order to make continual progress as a service provider in the education field. Each school year
continues to be a very exciting adventure as our students fill the campus with their vigour vision and enthusiasm. TPSY is a keen practitioner of
Invitational Education because it is our firm belief that what our students see, hear and sense from the people around them establishes who they
are and then in turn what they share with the world. If teachers and parents work together every day in conscientiously reflecting the noblest of
human behavior, giving the best of ourselves, and communicating positive Christian experience, our students will certainly follow us. Thus, we
will be equipping them, directly as well as indirectly, for a life journey that is not only fruitful but also one that they will find highly joyful and rewarding.

Every batch of students has given us much to celebrate, to remember and to be thankful for. The present group under our tutelage is no exception.
Its members are teachable, respectful and motivated. It is my privilege to affirm to you that our students have truly been making a concerted effort
to achieve excellence in all areas V academic, physical, social and spiritual. As a result, their self-confidence and self-esteem are also always on
the rise. An air of expectation is all around. We applaud these young people and I know that you, their parents, have good reasons to be proud
of your children.

 

在這瞬息萬變的世代裡,許多的「改變」及「不肯定」是令人不安的,我們必須尋找未來的的軌跡。從事教育工作者必須觸覺
敏銳,隨時應變,再也不能躲在象牙塔裡了。為了避免在這劇變的潮流中迷失方向,教育工作者必須在「變」與「不變」當中
尋找最佳定位。

本校辦學一貫的信念與原則是不會改變的,我們以聖經的價值觀為準則;以基督的愛為基礎;以學生的需要為大前提;以時代
的需要為我們的挑戰,為學生設計及提供均衡的課程,並為學生終身學習及全人教育奠下穩固的基礎。我們承諾以熱誠及愛心
關顧每一位學生;我們的老師在教導學生「樂於學習、善於溝通、勇於承擔、敢於創新」的同時,亦鞭策自己先要接受這些挑
戰。

廿一世紀的人不但須懂得關愛他人、管理自己及領導他人;同時需要具時代觸覺,能建構知識並能融會貫通,三育的教育正是
朝向上述方向,要在每位學生年輕的生命中注入這些特質。這幾年來,學校配合教育改革作出了多方面的嘗試,包括校本課程
的改革、全方位學習的推動、資訊科技教學的實施、閱讀的提倡、專題研習的推行、班級經營的加強、學生成功經驗的著重等
等,這一切的努力都可從學生的表現中看到成效。我們首要的工作是要培育學生的人格品德,在教學及活動中加強人文素養的
栽培,更藉著學生親身的體驗讓他們學懂解難、溝通及人際技巧;並提供各種機會訓練學生自學、探索及創新的精神。我們會
繼續努力,不斷嘗試、開創、並不斷研究、反思,在教育的質素上不斷追求完善。
