Principal

Welcome to my webpage! This is my fourth year as the Principal of TWGHs Chen Zao Men College (CZM). I have been working here since 1986. I graduated from the University of Hong Kong majoring in economics. I earned the Diploma of Education from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) with Distinction in Practical Teaching. I also attained the Master of Education in Educational Leadership and Administration from CUHK as well. I loved teaching economics and was keen to design lesson plans for different topics of economics with my colleagues. I served as a mentor for economics student teachers and also a marker in public examinations for years.

I was the Careers Mistress of CZM from 1994 to 2010. Guiding youngsters to know their strengths and interests, to set goals for further development and seeing them embrace the challenges courageously was rewarding. It was my honor to be invited by the Career Guidance Section of the Education Bureau (EDB) and the Professional Diploma Programme in Career Guidance of CUHK to be the guest speaker for years. The work of me and the Careers Committee of CZM as a whole was appreciated and recognized in the education field. In 2014-15, I was seconded to the Quality Assurance Section of the EDB doing External School Review (ESR) in a number of secondary schools. These have deepened my understanding of school management and enhanced my skills to carry out the duties of a principal.

I like travelling very much. My dream is visiting all corners of the world in my life. I used to backpack around Mainland China with a tight budget in my 20s. I visited the westernmost city in China, Kashgar (喀什) and the Arctic Village of China, Mohe County(漠河). I even went to Pyongyang (平壤) of North Korea from Beijing by train in 1986! Once I travelled alone for two weeks in order to challenge my abilities to cope with unexpected incidents and get along with people in different places.

Among these wonderful trips, the most impressive ones are service trips to the villages in Yunnan in Mainland China, building houses in Cambodia, visiting the orphanages and shelter homes for mothers and children with AIDs in Uganda in Africa. Their deprived conditions have made me know how well off the people in Hong Kong are. The children studied in schools having only worn-out chairs and desks, classrooms with muddy walls and even no lighting. I have also learnt  to treasure what I have, to be sympathetic about the needs of others, to share and to serve. These feelings and commitment echo the CORE values of CZM: to care, to be open, to respect and to endeavor.
