Message from the New Supervisor

The Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers bear witness to the gospel through serving the needy around the globe, leading and inspiring with openness and courage in embracing challenges. In appointing me, the first lay person to the role of Supervisor of the Maryknoll Fathers’ School primary and secondary sections, the Fathers demonstrated their zeal to empower the laity in the evangelization mission. I am greatly honored by the appointment and at the same time, most humbled by the enormous responsibility I shall shoulder to guide the school according to Maryknoll values.

The Maryknoll Sisters provided an open and loving environment for me to pursue truth and knowledge in primary and secondary school. At university, I was greatly inspired by the Maryknoll Fathers’ devotion to better society and upholding social justice. The enlightenment I received from the Maryknoll family guides me to this day.

In my career in banking, I prevailed through the eras of automation in the 80’s, development of new markets in the 90’s, intense anti-terrorist compliance scrutiny after 911, and combating the 2008 financial tsunami. These experiences taught me that in order to successfully transcend into new worlds, one must be bold and adventurous with acquiring new skills, adaptive to new trends, and persist with tenacity and conviction.

My first priority as Supervisor will be to earnestly implement the three major initiatives identified in the school’s three-year plan: 
1. Cater for learner diversity; 
2. Sharpen English proficiency; 
3. Foster spiritual development.

I have much to learn in my new role but I am confident that I shall learn fast and be effective very soon. I beseech past supervisors, principals, teachers and alumni to endow me with their insights on enhancing school management, and support from students and their parents to help me perform efficaciously. I pray that joined by the same heart, the same mind and the same will, together we will realize the Maryknoll Fathers’ vision in preparing students to pursue TRUTH and LOYALTY in their life long journeys, for the betterment of themselves and society.

Last but certainly not least, I would like to thank Fr. Sloboda for his dedication to the school in the past five years. In spite of his heavy commitments at the parish, he served the school tirelessly and with the most loving heart. I certainly would not be able to do many of the things he did, such as celebrate mass, deliver enchanting homilies and fatherly care, but I shall try my best to follow his example to uphold and emblemize the Maryknoll values in words and deeds.

As we start the New Year, I look forward to writing a new chapter for Maryknoll Fathers’ School with all of you, filling it with compassion, purposefulness, faith and renewed energy.

Ms. Agnes G. Yeh Supervisor

新任校監的話

瑪利諾神父修會一向敢於承擔和創新,以服務貧苦弱小為福音在普世作見証。今次委任我以第一位平信徒的身份當瑪利諾神父教會學校中、小學部的校監,深具賦權予平信徒傳承福傳工作的巨大意義。我深感榮幸,同時亦意識到肩負弘揚瑪利諾神父辦學精神責任的重大。

我在中、小學接受瑪利諾修女的教育,在開明和慈愛的環境中學習追求真理和學問。在大學時受瑪利諾神父的薰陶,深受他們關愛社會、維護公義的工作感染。在成長中得到瑪利諾精神的啟蒙,終身受用。

畢業後我投身銀行業,經歷八十年代業務自動化、九十年代開拓新興市場、911後全球的繁重反恐監管審查、2008年金融海嘯前後期業務部署等不同的工作領域,深刻體會到客觀環境瞬息萬變,前路茫昧,我們要堅守信念和恆毅努力,不斷學習新知識,追上新思維,才可創出新天地。

我上任後將專注於落實校本三年計劃的三大要務: 
1. 照顧學生學習的多元性; 
2. 砥礪學生的英語水平; 
3. 陶育學生的心靈發展。

要做好新崗位的工作,我需要學習的很多,望能夠持守為學日益的求進精神,盡快有所貢獻。更懇請歷任校監、校長、老師、校友不吝賜教,學生和家長們多加鼓勵支持,大家同心同德,秉承瑪利諾神父的辦學理想,辦好一間培育學生立己立人,終身堅持「真理、忠貞」的學校。

謹此我要向前任校監沈嘉仁神父衷心致謝。他五年來不辭勞累從百忙的堂區工作中抽身到學校服務,與師生交流,以牧者的愛心為他們言教身教,這些工作,我實是難以替代。但我定會以他為榜樣,盡心與師生一起守謢瑪利諾精神。

新年伊始,我期盼與大家一起以仁愛、信心、使命感、和新的活力,為瑪利諾神父教會學校編寫新的一章。
