Value Education

Living Shapes Character & Studying Shapes Mind

Ho Yu adheres to the principle of “Living Shapes Character & Studying Shapes Mind” to foster students’ positive values and sensibilities, i.e. perseverance, self-discipline, righteousness, integrity, respect, caring, gratitude, cherishing, and prudent management of finances, etc., as the direction of promoting Moral and Civic Education.  Ho Yu’s Values Education is well-planned to build a complete set of programmes that cater for the needs of students’ physical and mental development.  We hope that when students encounter problems at different stages of their development, they can identify things with correct values, make objective analyses and reasonable judgements, and put them into practice.  Values education enables students to face the challenges of life in the future.

Values Education Curriculum

In the regular curriculum, our school has Values Education to help students develop their correct values in different areas, including traditional Chinese culture, personal growth and healthy living, school life, social life, family life, and life in the society and the country.  During the lesson, we stimulate students’ feelings of value through scenario-based teaching and create situations to highlight value conflicts in real life, and stimulate students to explore their values by thought-provoking situational conflicts.  Through our continuous efforts, students can clarify and reflect on ambiguous values, and finally construct their own values on their own. Through the Values Education, students have developed the following values:
