2. Create a learning environment which inspires aspiration and stimulate learning.
3. Facilitate whole-person development of students with the core catholic values.
(2) School Management Organisation : The IMC leads and sets directions for the development of the school. The school is mainly made up of teaching staff and counseling and disciplining staff. Under the School-Based Management, various consultation and decision-making committees and teams are set up to help develop, manage and operate the school, including:

(4) School Green Policy : Our major aim is to raise the awareness of environmental conservation among all students by organizing various activities and adopting different measures. In classrooms, recycling bins are installed to collect recyclable materials. Throughout the school, LED lighting system is adopted to save energy and reduce the maintenance costs. On the roof, solar panels are installed to reduce the green-house gases emission. Water saving systems are also installed in toilets.
Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : To foster and ensure more effective learning in our students, Chinese is the medium of instruction. Since the school year 2010-2011, under the Fine-tuning of Medium of Instruction (MOI) arrangements for Secondary Schools, greater flexibility in increasing the exposure of students to English has been granted. Since 2016/17, to raise the English standard of students, apart from endeavoring in creating an English Language rich environment on the campus, the English Department has cooperated with the departments of Geography, Life and Society and Science to teach the subject knowledge in English in selected topics in the mode of English Extended Learning Activities.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : In line with the NSS curriculum, our Junior Form curriculum has been refined to extend the breadth of knowledge, values and abilities of students.
To equip our Junior Form students with the basic research skills and methods, the essential skills which will be called for in their senior secondary years, project work is introduced in junior forms in subjects like Chinese History, Social Studies and Science.
On the other hand, we have been making full use of various resources available in the community to fund different kinds of teaching and learning measures and curriculum development. This year, we are honored to be one of the four secondary schools territory-wide to participate in the QSiP CEAL delivered by CUHK aiming at promoting our teachers’ capacity in designing and carrying out assessments contributory to our students’ learning effectiveness. This year, we are participating in Multilevel Leadership Network for SDL Innovation to Advance STEM Development of the University of Hong Kong in hopes of fostering creativity and problem-solving skills in our students through cross-curricular STEM programmes. For our Senior Form students, to fully develop their talents, we offer 2 streams of elective subjects, consisting of over 10 subjects for students to choose from based on their interests and abilities. To cultivate presentation, thinking and research skills as well as creativity, interactive lessons are adopted as much as possible with emphasis on self-directed learning, questioning, group discussion and presentation. To cater for the different learning needs, students are streamed and allocated to different classes in all levels according to their performance in the language subjects and mathematics as well as their different learning needs. In class, collaborative learning is adopted to encourage learning from each other among students. After school, remedial lessons and enrichment programmes are run to address specific learning needs. Saturday school is also run for Secondary 6 students to aid them in tackling the core subjects in HKDSE.
(3) School-based Curriculum : 1. Electives: 2X and 3X. 2 or 3 elective subjects among the over 10 subjects are offered. Students can also choose Applied Learning or Extended Parts of Mathematics.
2. Curriculum highlights: The curriculum: student-centered curricula are supplemented with extensive cross-curricular activities to enrich and balance the learning experiences of our students to foster whole-person development in our students. To enhance our teaching effectiveness, collaborative lesson planning, peer observation and cross-curricular meeting are organized and held regularly to adjust the teaching and learning contents to address the needs of our students promptly.
(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks : 1. Learning from Reading: To cultivate students’ reading habit, a morning reading session is included in the daily timetable during which students can read extensively. To nurture the interest in reading, our Reading Promotion Team organizes an array of activities every year, such as Keen Reader Award, featured book exhibitions, book recommendations, and talks given by famous authors.
2. Applying technology in teaching and learning: To make the most out of technology, e-learning, submitting and retrieving homework online and other IT applications that can facilitate teaching and learning are being planned, developed and launched. This year, all S.1 and S.2 classes as well as some of our S.3 classes have taken part in Bring Your Own Tablet program. Added to the subjects like Mathematics, Integrated Science, Geography and Life & Society, which have adopted e-learning since last year, English and Chinese will incorporate e-learning elements, self-evaluation and peer evaluation in their curricula to facilitate an interactive classroom and enhance teaching and learning effectiveness.
3. Project Work: Project learning in different forms will be implemented to strengthen the 9 generic skills: communication skills; mathematical skills; Information Technological skills; self-management skills; self-directed learning skills; cooperative skills; creativity; problem-solving skills and analytical skills. All junior form students are engaged in project work. Project work in are integrated and implemented in different subjects.
4. Civic Education: Apart from the emphasis on academic enhancement, emphasis is also placed on the spiritual growth and moral education of our students. Real life case studies are used to pass on proper values. We also nurture their sense of responsibility for the community by running Elder Academy as a means to offer information of health issues and recreational activities for the elderly in the community while encouraging our students to serve the community as well as developing their talents.
(5) Life Planning Education : Aiming at helping our students understand their career prospect and imparting positive attitudes for work and studies, our Career Guidance Committee has successfully obtained a total of $1 million extra funds by taking part in various programmes and schemes run by the government or different organisations to help our students plan their life at an early stage, to set their own career aspirations and to offer vocational training through a range of activities and workshops. All these activities and workshops enrich not only our students’ other learning experiences but also their student learning profile.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : Split class policy is adopted to reduce the teacher to student ratio and cater for learner diversity. 5 classes are split into 6 groups in form 1 whereas in 4 classes are split into 5 groups in form 2 and 3 based on the ability of the students. In senior forms, A classes and B classes are split into 3 groups in the core subjects (Chinese, English, Mathematics and Liberal Studies) based on the abilities of the students.
To address the difference in learning needs among our students, extra resources are deployed to hire additional teacher to conduct small-class teaching. School-based curriculum and teaching materials as well as differentiated assessments are developed in different subjects to help different ability groups to learn. We also strive to help students with special needs by providing them with appropriate assessment.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : We employ a whole-school approach in adopting Integrated Education. To facilitate the effectiveness of learning of students with different educational needs, we have put several measures. At subject levels, all subjects have drawn their curriculum in a way that embraces differential teaching and assessment as well as catering for learner diversity. At school level, students with different educational needs are identified and supported by trained teachers and Life-planning counsellors.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for Learning and Assessment : The testing and learning measures in catering for learner diversity.
Arrangements are made in accordance of the needs of students of special learning needs in tests and exams.
Home-school Co-operation and School Ethos
(1) Home-School Co-operation : We value a strong partnership between school and families. A number of Home-School Cooperation functions and activities are organized throughout the academic year including talks, seminars and local trips. We encourage parents to participate in these activities and act as parent volunteers so as to know more about the school and build connections with us. Through cooperation and joint efforts, it is aimed to create a loving and caring learning environment and to give the best support to our students.
(2) School Ethos : We are a supportive and caring co-educational Catholic school for students aged from twelve to eighteen.
At CFS, we aim to provide students a happy and caring learning place where students can study and grow in a positive Catholic environment, where it will enable students to reach their full potential intellectually, physically, aesthetically, ethically, and spiritually.
We expect students to achieve high academic standards. Students are expected to work hard and to show respect for others and to take pride in their appearance. We seek to prepare all our students for their future beyond school. High standard of behaviour and self-discipline are also expected. We aim to develop a sense of responsibility in our students, not only for themselves, but also towards everyone with whom they are in contact.
Our high expectations apply not only to our students but also to all the staff as we strive to develop the best possible learning environment for the students entrusted in our care. Our teaching staff plans the curriculum and delivers their lessons in such a way that students are well engaged and motivated.
In the coming academic year, our school will continue to offer a broad and balanced curriculum designed to meet the opportunities and challenges in the 21st century.
Future Development

On the other hand, seminars, workshops and other professional training workshops are provided for teachers in order to boost their performance to the highest level and enhance accountability.
Life-wide Learning (including Five Essential Learning Experiences to be provided through Key Learning Areas, Extra-curricular Activities, Co-curricular Activities, etc.) : Our basic pattern of daily lessons is enhanced by a wide variety of opportunities for students to extend their learning in other ways. The activities are chosen to work alongside our curriculum and to benefit students’ learning as well as being fun and interesting.
Majority of the clubs are led by teachers within school. These clubs take place after school on Tuesdays and Fridays. Our school provides a wide range of extra-curricular activities such as chamber choir, drama, art, library, cooking and chess club. Junior form students are required to choose which club they would like to attend at the beginning of the academic year. Together with the PE teachers, dedicated and fully-qualified school sports coaches run a variety of after-school sports clubs throughout the year including football, basketball and badminton.
Students are also given opportunities to participate in voluntary work. We believe that this is a golden opportunity for students to gain experience within education and develop communication, organization and leadership skills.
