Principal・s Speech Prior to distribution of HKDSE Results

Dear Parents, Teachers and S.6 students,

DSE 2017

Today is an important day, one you have been looking forward to for a very long time. And I understand that you are waiting eagerly for your DSE results right now. Therefore I am not going to keep you long here.

First, I still want to reiterate that DSE is not a crucial factor in determining your future success but is only a milestone of your life journey. If you get a good result in DSE, it only means that you have landed on a straighter or smoother path to travel ahead than your peers. If your performance in the public examination is not so satisfactory, it only means you have to take a road, which is slightly more indirect, to achieve your goal. No matter what, the key factors of your future success are diligence and upgrading yourselves through lifelong learning. In short, your attitude determines your destiny.

I also hope that all of you have finished the .homework・ which Ms. S.M. Wong gave you during the Briefing Session held last Friday. The task requires you to prepare different options and choices to further your studies based on your different estimated scores. This would particularly be helpful for those who get results which are not within your expectations. It could be better or not as good as you have expected.

The overall DSE Examination results of Shung Tak this year is still encouraging and the overall performance is better than last year・s.
