|Our school organizes an array of orientation activities including the Get-Set-Go Camp for S.1 students and English Orientation Day Camp so that they can get accustomed to the new learning environment. It also ensures a smooth transition into secondary school. The school offers various summer bridging courses to help students get used to the curriculum changes. Students' personal development and a healthy diet are important. To achieve the goal of "Healthy Campus", promotion during assemblies has been conducted and posters have been posted accordingly, in order to instill good habits of personal hygiene in students. Chinese is the medium of instruction of our school; nonetheless, the school also places great emphasis on improving students' English. English enhancement courses are offered and small-class teaching is adopted to cater for students' diverse needs. For example, from S.1 to S.3, there are 6 groups in each form; in S.4, there are 5 groups. Our school also implements the Extensive Reading Scheme to improve the language capacity of students. After-school English oral courses have been set up as well. We help students enhance their language proficiency and bilingual communication skills through the NET Scheme, English Week, English Ambassador training, reading schemes, the Speech Festival, presentations during morning assemblies and project-based learning. Bi-literate and trilingual training are emphasized. The Language Learning Support Section of the Education Bureau provides on-site professional language support to strengthen the holistic planning of the school-based English Language curriculum by developing a balanced and coherent school-based curriculum with horizontal coherence and vertical progression.
