The design of the Dunman High Programme is guided by the school’s Philosophy of Education, which forms the basis of what we do, how we do and why we do in Dunman High to provide a forward-looking education for our students.
Philosophy of Education 教育哲学
In Dunman High School, we view character and cognitive development as fundamental to the holistic education of our students.
We seek to equip every Dunmanian with the disposition and competencies needed to thrive in an increasingly complex world. We believe every student should have the ability to collaborate well, think critically and creatively, and communicate effectively in both English and Chinese.
In line with Confucian philosophy and our values of honesty, trustworthiness, moral courage and loyalty, we strive to nurture Dunmanians with a passion for life and learning. We are committed to developing active citizens who care deeply for others, have a heart to serve, and take the lead to change the world for the better.
