FAR EAST HORIZON President Descended on Hongwen School
In the past few days when Shanghai Hongwen School started, FAR EAST HORIZON President, accompanied by officials in charge of the HR, Strategy and Business Units, descended on the company-run private school based in Pudong New Area.
From the very beginning FAR EAST HORIZON management attached very great importance to Shanghai Hongwen School, a flagship school under FAR EAST HORIZON’s Education Unit.
Safety and health comes first
President Kong walked around the entire campus to get firsthand information on campus safety, facility quality, environment and health.
Frequent campus health and safety incidents in recent years have become a general topic of concern, Kong pointed out. Student health and personal safety is the primary task of the school as well as the greatest concern of each and every parent. The school must not relax in its effort a bit in this regard.
Quality logistics will be a competitive edge of FAR EAST HORIZON schools
Kong noted during the inspection that logistics is also an important measure of the strength of a school. Now that the FAR EAST HORIZON Headquarters has all the conditions, standardized, sustainable professional logistics capacity will hopefully be one of the core competitive edges of FAR EAST HORIZON Education brands and schools.
Shanghai Hongwen School is a very good case in the point. Under robust support from the Headquarters, the school has benefited from what’s worth being hailed as the best ever logistics for a series of indicators: property management, safety & security, board and green space. The campus is no less of a wonder than FAR EAST HORIZON Head Office building; and it’s much better.
We can say without exaggeration that FAR EAST HORIZON devotes its heart and soul to caring about the children.
Pumping in more FAR EAST HORIZON resources into the school for a combination of advantages
After the surprise inspection, Kong expected more of the school future. According to him, the school will share resources with FAR EAST HORIZON’s non-education units and customers in the future so that remarkable competitiveness will be fostered in both breadth and depth. Beyond that, the school should extend its existing operations to achieve a greater social influence, assisting the Education Unit to forge a veritable unique advantage.
When it came to how to forge this unique advantage, Kong pointed out the importance of implementing and integrating MOE national curricula with international curricula. Plus, classical Chinese education is a must.
Built on the conception of “Students-centered, integration of East and West and Elite Education”, the school keeps to the praiseworthy philosophy of interest development and career planning. The school’s scheme is representative of the expectations of the parents and the society at large on superior quality education. It is the very conception and philosophy that inspire the school to integrate MOE universal curricula with excellent non-MOE domestic and international education resources in order to influence Chinese cultural courses with an inclusive humanistic notion. STEM education is also a basis for the school to design science education programs. The school offers a number of colorful interest courses to assist the students to discover and develop talents and interests which help build independent personality and good gifts.
At last, Kong let it known that the Headquarters will continue to pump in external social resources to the advantage of the school’s cause, a step hopefully believed to form a differential advantage.
It’s foreseeable that the school children will have access not only to mentoring from FAR EAST HORIZON’s in-house education experts, but also to visits to FAR EAST HORIZON’s business associates and more social resources. For example, the students can walk out of the campus for a look around 5A-class attractions, ports and industrial areas in cooperation with FAR EAST HORIZON as well as FAR EAST HORIZON-run overseas schools.
