What Are The Strategies Used In The Hong Wen School?

Hong Wen School, founded in 1920 by Hin Ann Huay Kuan, was found on the foresight of its founders, who believed in the necessity of education for children’s development of the Chinese language, culture, and values. The school finished a 16-month upgrade project in September 2017 as part of the MOE’s PERI Upgrading initiative. The Hong Wen School Management Committee showed its strong support for the effort by contributing 5% of the overall cost and providing additional funding for non-standard equipment, totalling half a million dollars.

Strategic Initiatives

The Hong Wen Arrow of Excellence (AOE) gives a high-level overview of the school’s main fundamentals and strategic orientation, which will help it achieve its mission and goal. The school’s Philosophy (Rootedness and Innovation), Motto (Honesty, Perseverance, Diligence, Thrift), School Values (R3ICE), and Key Success Factors are all outlined in the foundation of AOE (Be Positive, Work as a Team, Give of our Best). The Hong Wen School crest reflects the philosophy of ‘Rootedness and Innovation,’ with the ‘Rice Grain’ and ‘Gear’ symbolising ‘Rootedness’ and ‘Innovation,’ respectively. The concept encourages the member’s school community to be rooted in their Chinese ancestry and values while also embracing the spirit of lifelong learning and creativity.

Special Assistance Plan (SAP)

Our school’s SAP flagship programme, the Chinese Cultural Programme (CCP), incorporates many aspects of Chinese culture with Chinese language, physical education, art, and music studies. It shows the school’s focus on achieving its purpose of cultivating students who are “Rooted in Chinese Culture.” CCP aspires to broaden and improve our students’ understanding and appreciation of Chinese culture. It’s centred on the four realms of music, chess, calligraphy, and painting, and it’s integrated into the curriculum at all six levels. Chinese Musical Instruments (Guzheng, Erhu, and Chinese Drums), Chinese Chess (Xiangqi, Weiqi), Chinese Calligraphy, Chinese Painting, Speech and Drama, Chinese Tea Appreciation, Chinese Knots, and Chinese Paper Cutting are just a few of the topics covered.

Community Service and Student Leadership

“Everyone A Gracious LEader who Contributes to Society (EAGLES)” is the theme of our school’s Learning for Life Program (Student Leadership and Community Service). Every student, we believe, has the potential to be a leader in their own right. The EAGLES programme was created as a structured leadership and community service programme to instil a desire to lead and serve others in every youngster. Pupils participate in leadership training for various positions, level-wide leadership workshops and projects, which allow them to display and expand their understanding of leadership.
