It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the San Wui Commercial Society YMCA of Hong Kong Christian School. SWYHKCS is a unique primary school that offers a dynamic and international style education which combines the strengths of the English National Curriculum and the Hong Kong Maths and Chinese curricula. With students from over 25 different countries, we boast an exciting and diverse community in a harmonious, enjoyable and respectful environment. Our students are multilingual and they all excel in English as the language of instruction and inclusion. In addition, all students have the opportunity to learn Chinese as a native, a near native or as a foreign language speaker with the option to study Spanish as a 3rd language. With the combination of curricula, the multi-lingual environment and the love of learning that all our students share, we can truly prepare students for successful futures in Hong Kong or Overseas. As Principal of the school, it is my honour to work closely with exceptional teachers and support staff to build a community that ensures strong value education based on the CARES core values and the strong Christian principles of the YMCA mission; the development of mind, body and spirit. Together we will nurture students’ minds to love learning, be creative, be kind, and be confident. We will also ensure we continue to offer vast extracurricular opportunities to develop a healthy lifestyle and a well-rounded education, and most importantly, develop a strong school and community spirit based on Christian values. These important values and sense of community will help students develop a desire to serve and help those less fortunate, and ultimately be socially responsible to build a better society for future generations. I look forward to welcoming all students and parents to SWYHKCS, and together we can build a fantastic community full of success and opportunity, in the present and in the future.
