CHARACTERISTICS OF EDUCATION PROVIDED BY THE SISTERS ANNOUNCERS OF THE LORD
 
Our Convictions 
Education, the art of reaching the very heart of a person, is a mission that the requires boundless dedication of love and care. Only those who know how to touch a human heart can master this art.
We believe that a person is fundamentally religious, that is, he accepts the existence of the Creator, the origin of truth, goodness, and beauty, which all hearts are inclined to pursue. Education draws on such an inclination, and enables a person to develop his or her potentials to the full. We are deeply convinced that even the most deviant young people may repent and turn over a new leaf.
 
Application of Our Convictions
We absolutely agree that prevention is better than cure. We uphold the preventive measures founded by the great educator, St. John Bosco. The three key principles of his education method are : reasons, Christian faith, and love.
1.      We reason with our students. The regulations we make and the measures we carry out should be equitable and easy to understand. We induce our students to learn and be good through encouragement and fervent exhortation.
2.      We use the Christian faith to mould our students. Different religions guide people towards different directions. In the pursuit of truth, goodness and beauty, we educate our youths to appreciate the values of the Gospel.
3.      We tug at our students' heartstrings with our enduring love and care. Love is the core of our education. Only a heart can influence another heart. It is our deeds which reflect our love for our students, not our words.

 
顯主女修會的教育特色
 
我們的教育信念
教育是一項講求高度愛心的工作,是接觸人心的藝術。凡懂得通往人心的人,才可把握這門藝術。我們相信人的根向是宗教性的,即相信冥冥中有一位造物主;人心是朝向真善美的,而造物主就正正是真善美的根源。教育就是把人對真善美的各樣潛能發掘出來,並助其發揮到極限,我們深信任何青少年,即使是最頑劣的,也有改過遷善的可能。
 
我們的教育實踐
我們深信:預防勝於治療。本會效法偉大的教育家聖若望鮑思高創立的「預防教育法」。此教育法的三大要領是:理智宗教慈愛
我們用理由說服學生:我們的規條和措施著重合情合理,且容易使學生知道和明白。我們常用鼓勵和提示的方法來勸導學生向善及學習。
我們用宗教陶冶學生:在尋找真善美的過程中,每種宗教都循不同的道向而走,我們則根據基督福音的價值觀來教育青少年。
我們用真誠的愛心打動學生的心弦:愛是我們教育的核心,只有慈善的心才能打動另一個心。愛不在於多言,而重實踐,我們便用行動來表達愛心。
