Message from the Principal
Dear parents and students,
“Let no one have contempt for your youth, but set an example for those who believe, in speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity. “ 1 Timothy Ch 4:12
On behalf of everyone in Raimondi College Primary Section (RCPS), let me extend a very warm welcome to our school and this wonderful community. Hopefully, you have had a special summer filled with lots of fun, and now you are refreshed and ready to start this new school year! For our 2021-2022 SSPA results, 96% of P6 students were allocated to their first choice of secondary schools, while 98% were allocated to their first three choices. In addition, we are proud to announce that 97% of P6 graduates were allocated to EMI Band One schools, with 74 students allocated to Raimondi College.
We take pride in our ability to offer excellent learning opportunities and support to pupils so that they may receive the best experience during their learning journey with us, irrespective of their strengths, challenges or needs. Our dedicated teaching and support staff have always put students’ needs at the forefront of their planning – be they academic, emotional, pastoral or extra-curricular – so that our pupils are able to unleash their potential and thrive on opportunities whilst they are with us and empowers all our children to try their best to be a young, responsible and knowledgeable Raimondians with positive attitudes towards their life.
I would like to highlight the school’s Major Concerns for 2022-2023:
- To nurture students’ self-learning initiative and higher order thinking skills; train students to be independent and self-regulated learners through effective curriculum design and activities
- To cultivate students’ perseverance and sense of responsibility and to further reinforce students’ positivity through religious and moral education
As stated by Brian Herbert, “The capacity to learn is a gift; the ability to learn is a skill; the willingness to learn is a choice.” I wholeheartedly wish that this year brings you joy and inspiration. Furthermore, I hope you can achieve all your goals with passion, dedication and perseverance. Remember, no challenge is too big to overcome when you work with grit and consistency.
Endowed with a strong sense of responsibility and ownership, our Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) has always been a strong pillar of the school. It provides support and invaluable resources to our school. Therefore, I am pleased to announce that the PTA has pledged to sponsor HK$100,000 for the school library system upgrade so that young Raimondians can learn and grow to become self-regulated lifelong learners.
Last but not least, our heavenly Father has promised to empower us with inner strengths, and to walk with us no matter the challenges and trials that lie ahead, so let us be grateful to thank God for His abundant grace, love and mercy over the years. Together we rejoice our 65th Anniversary in love and harmony, and may we persevere in solidarity.
May God be with you always!
Ms. Lam Ngan Yin
Principal of RCPS
