Grow and Glow Series - Queensway Academy

Project Background

The Chinese authoritative classics of Confucianism “Great Learning” of “Book of Rites” (禮記·大學) mentioned “Their persons being cultivated, their families were regulated. Their families being regulated, their states were rightly governed. Their states being rightly governed, the whole kingdom was made tranquil and happy.”, it emphasizes the importance of Self-cultivation (修身), which we believe is the prerequisite of leadership.

We plan to hold a series of seminars to discuss “Introspection” (內省), this involves individual development, which resolves self-improvements to recognize the strength and weakness, and perceive the characteristics and value of oneself; promoting mentally healthy lives and well-being, so as to cooperate with each other to achieve a peaceful and inclusive team.
