從校訓看香港中華文化教育

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

文章以辦學團體類型、宗教信仰及歷史傳承三個角度,探討辦學團體對校訓內容的影響,並就儒、釋、道三家思想,對校訓文化內涵加以分析。儒家思想是中華文化的主流,「博文約禮」、「克己復禮」、「明德新民」、「文行忠信」等校訓,佔了香港學校數目的一半以上,可體現其支配地位。而佛教團體所辦學校的校訓如「明智顯悲」、「慈悲喜捨」等,借着佛家思想的教化,使學生能認識自我,樹立正確的人生觀,並在生活中付諸實踐,以慈悲之心待人,奉獻社會。至於道教團體所辦學校的校訓如「明道立德」、「普濟勸善」等,既重內外修煉,又重濟世度人,為社會作出承擔。香港學校校訓的內容,能體現對中華傳統道德、民族精神的傳承,而其文化內涵更是深受中華傳統文化思想的浸潤,並彰顯中西文化思想的交流與融合。
