禮 = Li 義 = Yi 廉 = Lian 恥 = Chi
The above represents a simple yet powerful and meaningful proverb.
The word禮 (Li)means courtesy. Our students are taught to greet the principal and teachers in the school and to greet their elder when they meet.
The word 義 (Yi) means loyalty. Our students are taught to be loyal and to respect those that have taught or helped them. Our students are taught to cherish those that are part of their lives and to never forget those that have contributed to their success.
The word 廉 (Lian)means honesty. Our students are taught to be honest to their families and others. Students must learn to be honest and truthful in all that they do.
The word恥 (Chi)means morality. Our students are taught to learn right from wrong. When students make mistakes they are encouraged to correct themselves.
A child's success is not only based on education but also on the above four factors. When a child can practice courtesy, loyalty, honesty, and morality, the child's success is endless. Our school works hard to promote禮義廉恥 to our students.
