HISTORY

Having been established in Hong Kong for 80 years, Confucius Hall has been carrying the mission of propagating Chinese culture and Confucianism. Over the past years, the Hall was honored to have had famous Chinese cultural and Confucian scholars, such as Lu Xun, Mou Zongsan, Lo Hsiang-lin, So Man-jock, Jao Tsung-I, Ch’ien Mu and Tang Junyi, to host speeches.

Stepping into the 21st century, Confucius Hall has extended its vision to offer modern, high quality, internationally-focused education embedded with rich Chinese culture.

Jìn Dé, Our Name

The Chinese name of the School and the Foundation, Jìn Dé (晉德), represents the Foundation’s dedication and commitment to providing the best education. The Chinese word “Jìn” (晉) is one of the 64 archetypes from the ancient Chinese classics Yìjīng (易經). With the connotation of “progress”, “Jìn” symbolizes students excelling through intelligence, wisdom and talents. The word “Dé” (德), literally meaning “virtues”, is rooted from Yìjīng’s “The virtuous bear duties onerous”, which conveys the idea that people who are virtuous, broad-minded and knowledgeable are trusted with enormous responsibilities.
