St. Francis of Assisi’s English Primary School aims to effectively cultivate the talent and capacity in each of its students founded on Catholic education principles. We strive to:

  • Adhere to the principle of Catholic education with the six learning areas (Spiritual, Moral, Intellectual, Physical, Social, Aesthetic) for the holistic development of our students.
  • Nurture essential competencies and proactive learning attitude among our students.
  • Provide students with a diverse and progressive school-based curriculum.
  • Cultivate an effective, appreciative and respectful environment for learning and teaching.
  • Sustain a collaborative culture based on love, care, mutual respect, fairness and understanding among teachers.
  • Maintain strong partnerships with parents and alumni based on mutual trust and open communication.


The five core values of Catholic education are properly put into practice by stakeholders. They are:


The greatest of all virtues, and the practice of all the virtues is to be inspired and motivated by love, so that all aspects of human life and interpersonal relationship may be bound together in perfect harmony. Jesus Christ is to serve as the model of selfless love and humble service to others.


A priceless gift from God and is sacred in itself. Every human being is created in the image of God.
The tribulations and adversities in life are to be faced with serenity and hope.


The basic unit of society that emphasizes the virtues of self-discipline and mutual respect.
A united family is the most favourable setting for the upbringing of children.


The object which human intellect searches for, and the desire for truth, especially the truth about God and about the meaning of life,
must always be encouraged and kept alive.


The moral virtue that consists of a constant and resolute will to give to God and one’s neighbours their due, and justice towards one’s neighbours disposes one to respect the rights of others and to establish in human relationships the harmony that promotes equity with regard to individual persons and to the common good.
