Principal’s Foreword 2017

Let me warmly welcome all to Hong Kah Secondary! 

Since its establishment in 1994, Hong Kah Secondary has been providing a nurturing and innovative environment for our students to develop into STARs (Strong in character, Thinking and caring, Aspiring for excellence and Ready to serve Singapore and beyond). We encourage all Hong Kah Lites to explore their potential and achieve their personal best in all aspects of school life. We hope to see them develop creativity, confidence and resilience as we take them through an enriching Hong Kah experience. More importantly, we want them to cultivate the habit of being grateful for everything that happens in their lives. The Hong Kah experience will make them stronger and wiser! They will learn to be mindful, grateful and positive in everything they do.

In 2016, our school Applied Learning Programme (ALP) “Real World Learning through Electronics” took on a whole new level. We were awarded the LearnSG Seed Fund which gave our students the opportunity to impart their knowledge in electronics to the neighbouring primary school students.  Hong Kah will also be one of the few secondary schools to offer applied subjects namely Electronics at O Level and Smart Electrical Technology at N Level. With a refreshed Electronics curriculum, supported with our newly refurbished Electronics Centre and Lab, Hong Kah Lites will have the opportunity to explore beyond traditional academic disciplines through experiential learning.

The future is an ever-changing kaleidoscope of lives amidst globalisation. As we progress into 2017, we continue to improve our programmes to nurture our students to be world ready.  We will be officially rolling out our Learning for Life (LLP) Programme “Sports A.LI.V.E!” where we develop active youths with knowledge, skills and competencies required to lead and promote a healthy lifestyle.  This is achieved through the school’s Physical Education and Sports programme by encouraging active participation, empowerment and excellence.

In Hong Kah, we value relationships and connections with the community. We encourage our students to develop respectful relationships with their peers, teachers and the broader community. We instil in all of them a keen social conscience and the capacity to make responsible decisions. We forge and sustain enduring relationships with our partners such as the School Advisory Committee, community partners, alumni and parents.  Their unwavering support has given us the opportunity to explore new frontiers in the education landscape where we discover and employ strategies to engage and motivate our students in learning.  

Last but not least, I would like to thank my team of committed staff who believe in the best of our students and relentlessly care for and nurture them into young adults who have a passion for learning and for life.  As one family, we shall bring Hong Kah to greater heights in the coming years.  Let’s continue to work together and guide our STARS to take on the world!
