Message from Principal

Welcome to the Secondary School. You will soon appreciate that Tzu Chi is a very special school that is part of a very sincere Foundation. Everyone is seen as being important and valued for what they can contribute in a respectful and caring environment where we continue to learn from one another while pursuing our aims and aspirations together.

In Secondary we strive for academic excellence including the development of artistic, creative, physical and emotional dimensions of each individual student. But, equally important is our commitment to developing a strong values led education driven by the humanist example of the Tzu Chi Foundation’s originator: Master Cheng Yen. We aim not only to develop an education of the mind but also one of the heart and soul. Each student has unique talents with the capacity to ‘make a positive difference’ in the world after they graduate. Our intention is to celebrate these talents and create an environment that allows every person to flourish achieving their true potential. Together, within our learning community, we will strive to achieve these high standards.

We are all stimulated by the prospect of enabling Tzu Chi to become a truly outstanding school and we look forward to meeting you in person as we tackle the exciting challenges that lay ahead. Once again, welcome to you all and here’s to a very successful partnership.
