Message from the Principal

For wherever your treasure is, that is where your heart will be too.
Luke 12:34

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Marymount Primary School, a Catholic girls’ school sponsored by the Christian Life Community (CLC). We provide students with a learning environment conducive to the pursuit of quality and whole-person development. The word ‘Magis’—Latin for ‘more’, is central to students’ and teachers’ work as we search for excellence.

Perhaps most would agree that Marymount Primary school is a happy and warm community in which everyone feels valued and respected. We care about the individual and see it as our responsibility to bring out our girls’ talents, to extend their potential, to encourage teamwork and to help them find the real treasures in their lives according to the teaching of Jesus.

We live in a complex and fast changing world and this means that providing an outstanding values formation and all-round education is more important than ever. In these three years, we aim to develop our school-based Values Education Curriculum—The Shining Gems Programme, and create an inspiring learning environment that unleash our students’ potential to become MPS Thinkers, Makers and Presenters. Our girls will be supported to build a solid foundation in languages and develop knowledge and skills young people need in the 21st century so that they are ready to make positive contribution to the world.

‘The Lord is My Light’ is our school motto. God has been our guiding light since 1927. This year marks the 90th birthday of Marymount Primary School. For all the graces we received from God and support from the parents and alumnae, we give thanks. As we look to the future, we have faith in the Spirit who guides us.

May the love and peace of God be with you always.

Best wishes,
Daphne Ho
