Dunman High Programme

Dunman High Programme (DHP) is a 6-year integrated programme leading directly to the GCE ‘A’-Level Examinations. It provides academically talented students with an enriched curriculum that aims to provide them with a stimulating environment that would deepen their appetite for in-depth academic pursuit.

At Dunman High, we believe in providing a holistic and well-rounded education that sees our students through not just the national examinations but also their development as confident leaders with a global outlook through a two-pronged approach; namely DHP-Academic and DHP-Student Development.

Philosophy of Education

“Every Dunmanian a Leader of Honour”

In Dunman High School, we view character development as fundamental to the education of our students. This view of education is strongly influenced by Confucius:

《礼记·大学》有言,“大学之道在明明德,在亲民,在止于至善……欲制其国者,先齐其家;欲齐其家者,先修其身,身修而后家齐,家齐而后国治,国治而后天下平”。

“To put the world right in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right.”

According to Confucius, the cultivation of self (ie self-awareness, being in touch with the inner self and development of the right moral values) is the beginning of a person’s growth and development into a leader of honour as spelled out in our motto, 诚信勇忠 (Honesty, Trustworthiness, Moral Courage, Loyalty) and Dunmanian Outcomes.

In this way, our students first cultivate a heart for care which evokes compassion and a desire to understand others. This attitude of care becomes an impetus to serve as they realise that the service to others is basic to building of a better world. Our students are, thus, inspired to appreciate the society in which they lived in, to understand the community in a local as well as global sense and to see that they have a role to play in shaping society for the better.

As an SAP school committed to bilingualism, our students learn in a unique environment where they are equipped with the skills and knowledge to help them to fulfill their roles as leaders. The activities they encounter at school reflect the activities that they would encounter later in life. This means that all students must be educated as a social individual and form bonds with the society in which he lives in.

德明直通车课程是一个六年制直通车课程,让学生直接参加“A”水准考试。它为学术表现优异的学生提供强化课程,激励学生进行更深入的学术研究。

德明人相信,在兼顾学术培养和能力发展的教育方针的指引下,德明学生不仅能在考试中取得骄人成绩,更能成为“心系祖国 放眼世界”的社稷栋梁。

教育理念

“将每位德明人培养成堂正君子,社稷栋梁。”

我校崇尚“树人为本“的教育理念,而这种理念也深受儒家思想的影响。

《礼记·大学》有言,“大学之道在明明德,在亲民,在止于至善……欲制其国者,先齐其家;欲齐其家者,先修其身,身修而后家齐,家齐而后国治,国治而后天下平”。

我校校训“诚 信 勇 忠”和“德明人的六大素养”,也是儒家思想倡导的修养,对学生自我意识的培养及学生的成长发展起着至关重要的作用。

这种教育培养学生关怀他人、理解他人,从而激励他们服务大众,为建设国家贡献自己的微薄之力。我们的学生对社会满怀感激,并且放眼世界,肩负起塑造美好社会的重任。

作为一所双语特选学校,德明对学生技能和知识的培养,为学生成为未来栋梁打下坚实基础。学校活动也培养学生今后踏入社会必须具有的社交能力,使学生既是一个个体,也对他所生活的社会有很强的归属感。
