Message from the Principals
Dear Parents and Raimondians,
“The heart of the intelligent acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.”
We hope you have enjoyed a wonderful summer, feeling relaxed, recharged and ready to start a new school year. We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to help your children to unlock their full potential. To have a fulfilling and enjoyable school life, one needs support from both home and school. Thus, a close collaboration between parents and teachers will make a significant difference in your child’s education. As partners, we want to assure you that we will be doing our utmost to guide the young minds towards a promising future.
Our Major Concerns for this year are:
- To cultivate two traditional Chinese virtues, namely, Benevolence and Integrity by sustaining the Five Catholic core values embedded in different domains through a cross-curricular approach in enhancing positive thinking and generic skills conducive to student’s lifelong learning.
- To foster the development of higher-order thinking skills of young Raimondians.
To achieve the above goals, we need to work together. We believe your guidance and support is paramount to your child’s personal growth. We are expecting all Raimondians to:
* Respect others
* Care for others
* Persevere in the quest for knowledge
* Strive for the best of oneself
To create a balanced learning environment for our young Raimondians, we complement our academic curriculum with many varied and interesting Co-curricular Activities. These undoubtedly help our children to be well-rounded and well-grounded. Please encourage your child/ children to sign up for at least one Co–curricular Activity.
We are pleased to announce that we had incredible 2017-2019 SSPA results. We have had 81 students allocated to Raimondi College together with about 88% of students allocated their first choice, which is far above the territory-wide percentage. We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all teachers for their hard work, teamwork, professionalism and attentiveness by always making our students a top priority. While we are celebrating this academic excellence, we will continue to upkeep this outstanding standard through determination and hard work.
Our professional and devoted staff are already planning and preparing for your child. Our hard-working and conscientious clerical staff and janitors have spent the entire summer thoroughly cleaning and preparing for the new school term. Our PTA is ready to welcome families, provide volunteer opportunities, and offer other exciting events and programmes. We are indeed a joyous and caring Catholic learning community with the common goal of nurturing responsible, caring young Raimondians with academic excellence.
Raimondi College Primary Section is looking forward to enriching your child’s life in learning and personal growth. We long for greeting students and families again in September. We feel privileged to be a part of this school family, and we look forward to the 2019-2020 school year with hope, excitement and confidence for students and staff.
It remains an honour and privilege to serve as your Principals. You are most welcome to approach us for further communication. Together, we can make a difference in every Raimondian’s growth and achievements. Let us work hand in hand and make Raimondi a place for showering God’s abundant love and care, where students feel learning is fun, enjoyable and challenging. We learn and grow together in this Raimondi big family.
“Beloved, let us love one another because love is of God; everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God.”
May the Lord bless you always!
