A Lantau Private Primary School for International Students
Welcome to Silvermine Bay School
We are a private Primary school for international students, overlooking the stunning Silvermine Bay of Mui Wo, Lantau Island.
At Silvermine Bay School, we consider personal, social and emotional education to be equally as important as academic education. We believe our students should have opportunities to learn about themselves as developing individuals and as members of their communities. We believe that everyone has natural talents which, once discovered, give them the confidence to aim high in other areas.
The heart to a successful school is building and maintaining good relationships – between students and teachers, teachers and parents, parents and staff and between ourselves and our surrounding community. We place great emphasis on good relationships and believe that it builds up the well-being of our school members. Students who are happy and enjoy being at school are far more likely to do well.
At Silvermine Bay School:
We will see the good in you and let you know;
We will help you to see the good in yourself so that you yourself will know;
We will teach you to see the good in other people so that you may let them know.
We will be apart of the movement that will make the world a better place every single day by spreading the positive energy of ‘Character Strengths’.
Create a Learning Community to inspire our next generation to flourish and make the world a better place.
To promote students’ well-being through engaging learning experiences.
We believe there are five important building blocks
to well-being and happiness, which positive psychology
pioneer Dr. Martin Seligman called PERMA.
Our school promotes PERMA values:
Positive Emotions – Students are happy at school
Engagement – Students are engaged in learning
Relationships – Students have a good relationship with classmates and teachers
Meaning – Students believe what they have learned is meaningful
Achievement – Students learn effectively with a sense of accomplishment
