Calligraphy 2 Jan 2018_1

Warmest greetings to all and welcome to 10 Tanjong Rhu Road, home of our Dunmanian family.

The start of a new year is always an opportune time to reflect on that which had happened as well as to look ahead to future possibilities.

In 2016, the school celebrated its 60th anniversary, a significant milestone especially in the context of the Chinese stem-branch calendar cycle. Through the decades, those who walked before us have tirelessly built up a proud heritage and laid a strong foundation. The school witnessed the many generations of Singapore’s movers and shakers who have passed through its gates, and it continues to nurture bilingual Leaders-of-Honour with a heart to care, to serve and to lead. The school has every reason to be proud of our Dunmanians, past and present. Likewise, Dunmanians take pride to sing the school anthem and recite the school motto, Honesty, Trustworthiness, Moral Courage and Loyalty. Between the school and Dunmanians, there is an unspoken mutual adoration, a reciprocal relationship that binds two entities notwithstanding the passage of time. In the words of John Henrik Clark, an American author, “A people’s relationship to their heritage is the same as the relationship of a child to its mother.” This special bond will only grow stronger as we celebrate the past and build our future together.

Over time, through sheer hard work, determination and a shared vision, Dunman High School has made its name as a premier SAP school with a strong foundation in Chinese Culture and Values. We will build on this proud heritage while moving with the times, equipping our students with the 21st Century Competencies that will be needed to confidently navigate the uncertain future, finding success in a new and ever-changing landscape. Sun Tzu once said, “He whose whole army is united in purpose will win!” With the passionate team of teachers and support staff that we have and with the unwavering support of our SAC, parents, alumni and partners, I am confident that our Dunmanians’ future is bright, and that we will keep the Dunman High flag flying high!

校长寄语

大家好!欢迎来到丹戎禺路10号,我们所有德明人共同的家园。

一年之计在于春。新年伊始,我们正好借此契机回顾过去,展望未来。

2016年我们迎来了建校60周年的里程碑。德明人齐聚一堂,欢庆德明在过去一个甲子中所取得的辉煌成就。前辈们筚路蓝缕,为我们打造了文化丰富的良好基础。德明向社会输送了一代代的新加坡领导者们,并以继续培养双语精英们关怀、服务、领导社会的精神为己任。

无论是过去还是现在,德明都因培育这样的德明人为豪。同样的,德明人也以母校为荣:他们高唱校歌,牢记“诚、信、勇、忠”的校训。在母校和校友们之间,已形成一种不言而喻的默契:他们相互欣赏,相辅相成,哪怕时间流逝,他们也心系彼此。正如美国作家约翰·亨利克拉克所说的,就是“一个人与他们传统的关系,和一个孩子与其母亲的关系是一样的”。这种特殊的联系,将只有在我们共同继往开来时才会变得更加强大。

因为有着共同的决心和愿景,经过几代德明人不懈的努力,德明已被公认为富有华族文化和传统价值观的首屈一指的特选中学。我们将在此坚实的基础上,与时俱进,培养学生具备21世纪技能,使他们能满怀信心面对未来的挑战,在日新月异的新时代中取得成功。孙子云:上下同欲者胜。我相信,在全情投入的教职员团队的支持下,在德明咨询委员会、家长支援会、校友会以及其他各合作伙伴的积极配合下,我们德明将继续灿烂,并再创辉煌!

刘德荣校长
