The Burning Bush is a symbol of the community of Christians in Presbyterian Churches all over the world. In the Book of Exodus in the Bible, we are told that Moses discovered just such a bush in a very deserted place. It stopped Moses in his track – so amazing it was.
God was showing something of His Holiness, greatness and power to Moses, and was calling him to live for God, doing what He says.
Therefore when we see this symbol on our flag, we should DRAW NEAR to God with wonder and praise. And when we draw near to God we should, like Moses, LISTEN WISELY to what God says. Having learned what God say to us, we should DO WELL what HE demands.
If then GOD shows Himself and His way to us, He will surely make us A FLAME FOR TRUTH.
Rev John Hanna
焚而不毁 (fén ér bù huǐ)
This is the school motto “AFLAME FOR TRUTH” in Chinese. The saying teaches us to be resilient and uphold our belief and integrity in the face of setbacks.
饮水思源 (yǐn shuǐ sī yuán)
Literally translated, this saying means that we should reflect on the source of the water as we drink.This guides us to be grateful and respectful to our parents, teachers, school and nation. We are responsible and accountable for our actions and should actively seek to contribute to society.
立己立人 (lì jǐ lì rén)
This a line from our school song. It means that we should build our character and inspire others to exemplify goodness. We should develop ourselves, serve others and play an active role in bettering the lives of others around us.
