Sometimes when we think about life, it is mysterious. We go to school for lifelong learning. But what should we do in a world of digital media, in a world full of different information and in a world that is totally different every year.
I think we should be tough and resilient. We should aim higher for being successful. Why?
Have you ever heard the story of Thomas Edison? He was a famous American inventor and businessman. Edison went to school only for a few months. He was taught reading, writing and Maths by his mother. He was always a very curious child and taught himself much by reading on his own. He always aimed high for being successful.
He developed many devices in fields such as electric power generation, mass communication, sound recording (even though he was deaf), and motion pictures. These inventions, which include the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and early versions of the electric light bulb, have made a huge positive difference to our modern lives.
If we aim higher, we can envision a better future for ourselves. Moving ahead from lower primary to upper primary and then entering secondary school you may face many challenges and feel exhausted. But don’t worry we are here to support and encourage you at every step of the way!
Our alumni have been doing well. Many of them are good examples for you to follow. Some of them are studying Medicine and Surgery at CUHK, some are learning Global Business in HKUST and some are pursuing studying Law at HKU. They are working towards contributing to our society in various sectors. Why can they do so? They are really demonstrating Thomas Edison’s spirit and so can you!
