Principal’s Message

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

As we step into 2020, a brand new year awaits us – like a chapter in a journal, ready for our entries that encapsulate life’s highs and lows. As authors of our own life story, we define and choose the way it turns out to be.  We can see what happens to us, like an optimist or pessimist. An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist, on the other hand, stays up to make sure the old year leaves. Which one are you?

2019 was an exciting chapter in the school’s history, as it celebrated many important milestones.  Among them, we celebrated our 40th year as a SAP school, 15th year as an IP school, offering a 6-year integrated programme, and we welcomed our inaugural batch of JAE students to our Senior High (JC section).  The significance of these events goes beyond a celebration of anniversaries.  They represent our heritage and achievements, our hopes and dreams of our past, present and future Dunmanians.

Through hard work and dedication, the school continues to grow from strength to strength.  Our students and our staff continue to be our pride and joy.  Our parents and alumni continue to be our greatest source of strength and encouragement.  There are reasons to celebrate, and we can look ahead with confidence.

Moving forward in the next chapter of our journey, we are stepping up on our efforts to strengthen the Dunmanian DNA, building on our strengths of dual emphasis on character development and academic rigor (为人、为学).  As we continue to refine our programmes and re-design our curriculum, upgrade our learning spaces, we aim to nurture Dunmanians as skilful negotiators in an ever-changing landscape, while being anchored on timeless values and qualities of 诚、信、勇、忠 – the school motto of Honesty, Trustworthiness, Moral Courage and Loyalty.

The New Year brings with it new possibilities and new promises.  We can look forward to achieve greater things individually and collectively.  We must be prepared to be great, not by our words, but by our actions – through a determined spirit and hard work.  When we move forward as one, I am confident that our Dunmanians’ future is bright, and that we will keep the Dunman High flag flying high!

Wishing all a joy-filled and fulfilling 2020!

2020年校长献辞

大家好!欢迎来到我们丹戎禺路10号的德明校园,我谨代表德明大家庭向各位致以最诚挚的问候!

时代已掀开了新的一页,崭新的2020年正在前方召唤我们。就像日记中的新篇章一样,无论是高潮或低谷,精彩或平庸,都等着我们去填写。作为我们自己人生故事的作者,讲故事的方式由我们来选择并决定。我们可以选择成为乐观主义者,也可以是悲观主义者。乐观主义者坚持到午夜的目的,是为了拥抱迎接新的一年;而悲观主义者熬夜的目的,是为了确保旧的一年可以过去。你,属于哪一类?

回首2019,我们感慨万千。2019年是德明历史上拥有许多重要里程碑的一年,令人鼓舞和振奋。这一年,我们欢庆了特选学校成立40周年,六年一贯制的综合课程在我校开设也已15年了,我们还迎来了首批联合招生计划下升入我们高中的学生。庆祝这些事件的意义,不止于庆祝本身,而是因为它们代表了我们的传统、成就及创新,承载着过去、现在和未来的世世代代德明人的希望和梦想。

经过历代德明人的不懈努力和无私奉献,学校不断发展壮大。我们的师生员工依然是我们的骄傲和财富,家长和校友也继续是我们最大的动力之源。我们有太多值得庆祝的理由,让我们可以满怀信心、无惧无畏地辞别过去,展望未来。

精彩的旅程还在继续。在下一段旅程中,我们会努力不懈,以强调品格的全面发展(为人)和学术的精益求精(为学)并重的优势为基础,进一步增强德明人的DNA。随着我们对课程的重新设计、活动的持续完善、学习空间的不断提升,我们希望培养出这样的德明人:在面对千变万化的现实环境和社会变迁时,他们能在立足于德明人诚,信,勇,忠的价值观的基础上,与时俱进,随机应变,从容应对,并追求卓越。

新年带来了新的可能和新的希望,让我们期待无论是个人还是集体都能实现更远大的目标,共创辉煌。千里之行,始于足下。要达到这一愿景,我们必须凭自己的行动,通过坚毅的精神和辛勤的努力,而不只是空喊口号。正如陶行知所言:“行是知之始,知是行之成。”只有通过行动才能增加认知,才能一步一个脚印,走向成功。

众志成城。当德明人上下一心向前迈进时,我坚信我们的前途将更加光明。我们将让德明的旗帜继续高高飘扬,并使德明精神发扬光大!

祝大家拥有欢乐和充实的2020年!

刘德荣校长
