School Management
(1)School's Major Concerns : 1. To enhance self-directed learning and develop students' initiative in their studies.
2. To co-ordinate with the core values of Catholic schools and raise students' sense of well-being through the implementation of positive education.
(2) School Management Organisation : To adopt school-based management, which governs the school administration and policy-making, the Incorporated Management Committee (IMC) has been formed. It comprises clergy, the principal, parents, alumni, teachers and independent community member(s).

(4) School Green Policy : Our school adopts School Green Policy. We place different kinds of recycling bins, such as paper and toner cartridge recycling bins, to encourage our teachers and students to help in recycling. Our school also encourages our staff and students to exchange information and share resources on the school intranet instead of using paper. Moreover, lunch suppliers will collect the lunch boxes and recycle them.
Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : Our school makes great effort to promote bi-literacy and tri-lingualism. We emphasize English learning and aim to enhance students’ English language proficiency. Medium of instruction is chosen according to students’ learning ability in English. At junior secondary levels, Integrated Science is taught in English in all forms while Mathematics is taught in English in some classes. To let students adapt more easily to English learning, School-based cross-subject English material are developed and used.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : Invitational Education in our school started in 2004, after the invitation from the Education Bureau. Our school was awarded the Inviting School Award, the School Fidelity Award and the Invitational Education Fidelity Award in 2006, 2008 and 2011 respectively. All these prove our success in education with respect and trust in students, which enables our students to develop their full potential.
Integrated Humanities is included in S.1-S.3 curriculum to motivate life-wide learning and can help to bridge students with Liberal Studies at senior secondary levels. We have employed more English teachers and practise small class English teaching in school. At junior secondary levels, there are after-school periods during which students do learning reflection. There are after-school enhancement classes, particularly for S.6 students, to prepare students for the public examination. Chinese Language, English Language and Mathematics are taught in small classes in all forms of the school, so students’ learning diversity can be catered for.

(3) School-based Curriculum : 1. Electives: 2X. We provide 2 electives for each senior form student. Please refer to school website for details.
2. Curriculum highlights: Junior form Computer Literacy to enhance information technology skills. Junior form Integrated Humanities, supplemented by e-learning, to enhance students’ information literacy and critical thinking as well as to prepare junior form students for DSE Liberal Studies.
(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks : 1. IT in Education: Being the Information Technology in Education Center of Excellence, in cooperation with the Education Bureau, we launched a series of programmes in information literacy and other areas. At junior secondary levels, “Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)” Programme allows e-Learning to be conducted inside and outside the classrooms. The Multimedia Room was reconstructed, more tablet computers have also been installed to enhance interaction in class and this forms a teaching platform. Our students also help production of School Campus TV Programmes. They also use Live Broadcast System to broadcast live programmes to the whole school.
2. Development of Reading Habit: A reading session is implemented every morning to develop students' reading habit. Every week, we have structured reading for Chinese, English and other subjects. Implementing "Bring Your Own Device", our school provides students with abundant online reading materials. Student Reading Ambassadors would also recommend books and share their experience with their schoolmates.
3. Project Learning: STEM education is provided at junior secondary levels to allow students to conduct cross-curricular projects, so as to enhance their creativity, collaboration and problem-solving skills.
4. Moral and Civic Education: To promote moral and civic education, we incorporate Life Education lessons and Ethics and Religious Education lessons into our curriculum. In addition, we organise various voluntary services with other organisations. Through these community services, students are cultivated to have a sense of responsibility. Apart from that, we organise various local and overseas trips and competitions to enhance students’ social awareness and broaden their horizons.
(5) Life Planning Education : For life planning, we adopt the whole-school approach. Apart from incorporating life planning education into our regular curriculum for all forms and offering a Life Planning lesson specifically for S.6, we also organise various activities for our students, such as, Alumni Career Sharing Seminars, visits to universities and company visits. All these provide opportunities for students to understand themselves better and to strengthen their understanding towards different workplaces and study paths, which help our students to set their career goals throughout their secondary education.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : Our school is a caring school. To cater for the needs of different students, our school organises various student support programmes every year such as individual and small-group peer counselling schemes. We adopt small class teaching for Chinese, English and Mathematics. We also encourage students to join various intramural and extramural activities about life experience. We hope students of different abilities can be properly taken care of. Besides, we can help to develop their potential and boost their self-confidence so that positive values and perspective of life can be further fostered and enhanced.

(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : Our school is committed to building an inclusive and caring culture and promoting integrated education in a whole-school approach. The Student Support Team (SST) consists of the Vice-principal, Special Education Needs Coordinator (SENCo), Counselling Mistress, Discipline Mistress, Integrated Education Support teachers, Educational Psychologist and Social Worker to provide ample and appropriate support to students with special educational needs.
We adopt a variety of training programmes and group activities, and provide individual counselling for students in need. We also use the “Learning Support Allowance” to outsource professional services such as speech therapy services, occupational therapy services and so on.
We regularly distribute up-to-date information about integrated education to all teachers, share relevant ideas and teaching suggestions, strengthen teachers’ understanding of integrated education, and encourage staff to participate in the Education Bureau’s training courses to enhance professional knowledge. Our school attaches great importance to home-school cooperation. The SST regularly communicates with parents to let parents know about their children’s learning and support their learning and growth.
(3) Education Support for Non-Chinese Speaking(NCS) Students : Our school provides additional support for NCS students to facilitate their learning of Chinese: providing after-school support programmes in learning Chinese; arranging intensive Chinese learning and teaching mode(s), e.g. pull-out learning if necessary, split-class/group learning, etc.; and organising cultural integration activities.

Home-school Co-operation and School Ethos
(1) Home-School Co-operation : Our Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) has been set up for 21 years and parents actively participate in school affairs and activities. For example, parent representatives (PTA) are invited to be one of the managers of the Incorporated Management Committee as a way to strengthen the cooperation between our school and our parents.
(2) School Ethos : To cultivate a good virtue among students, our school is a ‘Serving Community’. Our students are willing to serve the needy people through different social services, like Visiting Elderly Day, Famine Lunch, Caritas Bazaar and so on. Our school has joined the Rotary Adopt a School Program with Rotary Club of Metropolitan Hong Kong. Students’ sense of responsibility is boosted through participation in various activities.

With the culture of Invitational Education, our students are often encouraged and their achievement are recognised by teachers. We aim to build a “Healthy Campus”, nurturing energetic teenagers with high self-esteem.
Future Development
(1) School Development Plan : 1. To enhance self-directed learning and develop students' initiative in their studies.
2. To co-ordinate with the core values of Catholic schools and raise students' sense of well-being through the implementation of positive education.
(2) Teacher Professional Training and Development : Throughout each academic year, our school holds various staff development activities to enhance staff professional excellence which include courses, seminars and workshops as well as sharing sessions.

Our school aims to foster a professional exchange culture with teachers of other schools locally and internationally. The culture of professional development is fostered through peer lesson observation and teaching experience sharing with local and overseas teachers.

With the aim of broadening teachers' horizons, our school recently has been actively arranging overseas exchange trips for teachers to America, Shanghai, Taiwan, Zhuhai, Singapore and so on. Teachers were given opportunities to visit numerous schools, observe lessons overseas as well as exchange good teaching and learning practices with the local teachers and students. Our teachers have gained lots of valuable knowledge by observing different education systems from different countries.

In addition, our school organises “Lesson Observation Month” every year, which aims to nurture peer lesson observation to enable staff to learn different teaching strategies from each other, so they can excel their teaching methods.
Life-wide Learning (including Five Essential Learning Experiences to be provided through Key Learning Areas, Extra-curricular Activities, Co-curricular Activities, etc.) : There are more than 50 societies and clubs in 6 categories, including religion, service, academic subject, interest, art and sports. Leadership training camps, cross-border and overseas study tours as well as other learning activities are held every year to develop students’ interests and encourage students’ active participation.
