Beliefs

Pursuing Excellence & Moral Integrity (德艺双馨)

At Sheng Hong Arts Institute (SHAI), we believe in pursuing excellence and moral integrity at the same time.  We believe in sustainable partnerships to give back to the community, locally and overseas.  SHAI has consistently contributed to various organizations, institutions and schools in Singapore through our outreach programmes.  Over the years, SHAI has also provided students with international learning and competition opportunities through the Overseas Cultural Immersion Programmes.

SHAI is and will continue to provide opportunities for the development of our local arts and culture practitioners and educators in order to ensure sustainability.  SHAI strongly believes that potential recipients of scholarships from SHAI must also possess or develop moral integrity while pursuing professional excellence.  This, in SHAI’s context, is important to ensure sustainability.

In the pursuit for economy progress and prosperity, Singapore have to build up our multiculturalism with strong roots in our Asian cultures while having a cosmopolitan outlook. Traditional arts is our rich heritage, just like the language we speak, they are the art forms we are privileged to inherit. In harmonising local traditions and foreign traditional arts, the diversity is what makes Singapore’s unique and vibrant cultural heritage- In which I hope to explore and contribute to in the future.

新加坡在追求经济快速发展的时代,我们必须加强国家人民对亚洲文化的理解。我们应当在守望种族和谐共荣的基础下,有更广阔的视野。我们优秀的传统文化艺术就如沟通的语言一样,无比珍贵。独特。灿烂。身为国家青年,我希望自己能够更加了解这份文化,并且分享给更多国人。

Now, there are lesser and lesser people that learned and understand the essence of Chinese dance. As I have great interest in it and thus would wish to pass it down to the next generation. Chinese culture arts has a long history which it has an unlimited knowledge to be learn from. I know that the end states of my own hard work that I’ll be going through is not for myself but is for my family and people from Sheng Hong Arts Institute which they have great faith on me. As such no matter how tough it will be, I will never give up.
