|(1) Whole-school Language Policy:||:||To further promote students' proficiency in Chinese and English, our school has implemented a new language policy in recent years. It is evident that the performance of our students in public examinations has been very encouraging. To provide a language-rich environment for students to become "bi-literate and tri-lingual", we organize weekly English morning assembly, Chinese and English choral speaking competitions, extensive reading schemes, multi-media learning activities, campus broadcast, English drama, debates, English Activity Lessons and Morning Reading Time, etc. In line with the "fine-tuning" of the language policy in secondary schools, English is used as the Medium of Instruction in some subjects of some classes. In all junior forms, Mathematics is taught in English and there are extended English learning activities to consolidate JS students' foundation in English (Includes Integrated Science, Computer Literacy, Geography, Economics, History, Visual Arts, Home Economics, P.E., Music, Design and technology, Physics, Biology and Chemistry).

Projectors, computers and audio-visual aids are installed in all classrooms to facilitate IT in teaching and learning. Various learning activities can be conducted through e-class in the Intranet. Our school promotes the importance of respect and responsibility through morning assemblies, mass programmes, monthly themes and voluntary work. Through discussions on current issues in class and in mass programmes, students' sense of civic responsibility and reflective capabilities are enhanced. The study trips to different countries help broaden students' horizons.

In recent years, the government has been keen on promoting Career and Life Planning Education, putting more resources into this area. Our experienced career guidance teachers and class teachers work hand in hand to provide group or individual counselling for our students. Both junior and senior students have been guided on goal setting and future planning. We also set up the "You dare to think, I dare to award" Award Scheme in junior forms, to assist students in cultivating positive values.
Our school also offers a wide range of CLP activities including career talks, workshops on subjects selection, mock interviews, simulation games, visits to various tertiary education institutions, sharing sessions held by alumni, study tour to the Mainland and Taiwan, alumni mentorship program, BSPP working experiences program, etc. The active participation in various CLP activities enables students to ponder over their life goals and to plan their life-long career more effectively.
