I am honoured to wish each and every one of you God’s perfect gifts of peace, joy and hope during this new year 2022. First of all, I would like to take a few words quoted in our Constitution of the Incorporated Management Committee (for Catholic Schools in Hong Kong) St. Rose of Lima’s College, from the part Vision and Mission of the School: one of the Core values on family mentioned that “an intact and united family is likewise a most favourable setting for the upbringing of children and young people, and a necessary condition for the well-being of human society”. Yes, dear parents, family is like a nursery where the lives of each and every one of us are nurtured and given meaning and purpose to our lives. Moreover, parents are the first educators to their own children and their life example has tremendous influence on each and every child in every family. So, I would like to take this wonderful opportunity to call on each one of you, to do your very best to be the best example to your own children as you influence their lives now and forever. May I wish each and every one of you to imitate the best and perfect example of the Holy family of Holy Mother Mary, St. Joseph the foster father and Jesus Christ Himself who is our Lord and the Saviour of the world. May God bless you all.
