Learning and Teaching Plan
Learning & Teaching Strategies : Educational activities are arranged apart from lessons. The school curriculum aims at providing students with an all-round education in a Christian context. Students attend a weekly church service held by the School Chaplain at Christ Church. We have an array of subjects stressing language, knowledge, thinking and learning skills, appreciation of the arts, as well as physical and spiritual well-being. We offer leadership training opportunities for more mature students. We expect students to serve the School and the community and also go on Outward Bound before they graduate. We want our students to be trilingual and we use Putonghua as the medium of instruction for Chinese. The School adopts an activity and project based learning approach; P.1 to P.6 - Science projects integrated with English, ICT and other subjects, Social Studies projects integrated with Chinese, ICT and other subjects, History & Geography projects (P.3 to P.6 only) integrated with English, ICT and other subjects.

In coping with adverse conditions or changes in life, some children may require support in strengthening their resilience. In this regard, the School offers the Understanding the Adolescent Project for upper primary students. We also cultivate good values and attitudes in students through an all-round curriculum with integrated cross subject theme-based learning experiences and other school activities in bringing up good citizens with a po
