College Signature

At Lee Woo Sing College, we aim at developing leaders for Hong Kong, the mainland and the world.

A good leader should be objective, knowledgeable, insightful and receptive to different views.

We also emphasize on promoting the spirit of ‘Harmony’, being kind to people and handling things with moderation, which is a decisive factor for building up a successful career and leading a productive and rewarding life. Students will be encouraged to be thankful and contribute to their alma mater and the community.


The College emblem mainly consists of three ancient Chinese characters – people, mountain and harmony.
The royal blue and gold colors represent nobility and elegance.

People (人)

Nurturing leaders for Hong Kong, the mainland and the world

Mountain (山)

Aligning itself seamlessly with the surrounding woods and nature

Harmony (和)

Emphasizing harmony, tolerance and fraternity


to provide students with pastoral care and whole-person education, including general education;


to broaden the outlook of students and to help them acquire an international perspective through the College’s formal and non-formal education programmes;


to foster a warm and collegial community where students and academic staff learn, share and grow intellectually;


to cultivate among students a commitment to personal and social responsibility as well as integrity, which will lay the foundations for contributions to society and for an enriching life in the future;


to help broaden students’ understanding of and liaison with Hong Kong, the mainland and the world, so as to enable them to build up a successful career in the future, and to encourage students to contribute to their alma mater


The College motto was derived from The Rites of Zhou, one of three ancient ritual texts listed among the Confucian classics.

The first two moral principles emphasize the pursuing of knowledge and the nurturing of character; while the last two focus on learning the right attitude in conducting oneself in society.


Pursuing knowledge, with the spirit of exploration


Being considerate, aspiring to the perfect personality


Being loyal to others, with a sense of responsibility


Being kind to people, handling things with moderation
