Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : Chinese is the medium of instruction for junior forms. In order to cope with students' different needs and abilities, non-Chinese speaking students learn all non-language subjects in English. An approach that aims at progressively developing students' English proficiency is adopted in other classes. In accordance with the fine-tuned MOI arrangements, some subjects in the school devote about 25% of the teaching time to English extended learning activities. To further strengthen the English-rich environment, morning and weekly assemblies are regularly conducted in English. Furthermore, students are encouraged to communicate with their teachers using Putonghua and English. Through the introduction of Morning Reading Periods, Extensive Reading Programmes, English Week, Chinese Week and suchlike language-related activities, students’ overall proficiency progresses steadily. Besides, during the annual Cultural week, students can engage themselves in different cultural experiences, from Chinese opera performances from the Orient to ballet dances from the West. The activities are expected to sharpen students' appreciation of different cultures and art forms. Putonghua is a compulsory subject to all junior forms. Students are trained to join the Putonghua Choral Speaking section in the Hong Kong Schools Speech Festival and attained remarkable achievements in the past years.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : Our school closely follows the new senior secondary curriculum. Teachers appropriately change the contents of the subject syllabuses, the teaching methods, students' assignments, and the assessment criteria. The school continuously develops the contents of Liberal Studies and attempts to strengthen the essential learning abilities of junior students. Diverse other learning experiences are provided to further enhance students' quality of life. In the junior level, the school follows the Territory Wide System Assessment criteria whereas the senior levels follow the SBA assessment trend in the NSS. We grouped the existing subjects into seven Key Learning Areas. In the formal curriculum, we conduct courses in performing arts to develop students' multiple intelligence.
(3) School-based Curriculum : 1. Electives: 2X and 3X. Senior secondary students can, from a vast array of key learning areas and applied learning courses, opt for two to three electives according to their interest and aptitude.
2. Curriculum highlights: In accordance with the education reform, the school has restructured the junior form school-based curriculum to prepare students for the New Senior Secondary curriculum.
(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks : Our school is striving to develop our curriculum in line with the four key tasks stipulated in the new curriculum:
1. Reading to Learn: By making effective use of two morning reading periods per week, cross curriculum reading and various reading schemes, a reading habit is being cultivated in students.
2. Project Learning: Project learning skills are taught in Liberal Studies lessons. Students perform satisfactorily and enjoy learning through project work.
3. Information Technology for Interactive Learning: Promote STEAM education and students' learning interests.
4. Moral and Civic Education is being introduced through thorough discussions on the relevant topics during morning assemblies, hall assemblies, class-teacher periods, Life Education and Ethics and Religious Studies. The school also takes care of students' mind. Through the practice of mindfulness, mindful walking, mindful eating and educational camps, the school implements its spiritual education and life education for the students.
(5) Life Planning Education : Comprehensive programmes to facilitate career development of all students include:
1. Individual and group guidance and counseling is provided to assist students to understand their aspirations, abilities and needs; and by extension, to plan their own career path.
2. Talks on further studies, visits to universities, alumni sharing sessions and career guidance workshops are arranged in order to comprehensively keep students informed of the latest developments in the realm of further studies.
3. Career-related Experience activities such as industry experience workshops, internships, workshops on interview skills and company visits are organized for students, in order to assist them with career exploration, and instill in them an appropriate working attitude and the ability to reflect.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : To cater for diverse individual learner differences, needs and interests, small-class teaching is practiced with tailor-made courses of study for each group. With abundant opportunities for cooperative learning and project learning, students are expected to develop a culture of appreciation and cooperation. After-school enhancement programmes and remedial tutorials are provided to help our students progress academically.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : Student Caring Committee was established to create an inclusive learning environment to support students with diverse learning needs. School and parents develop plans for the students together for an optimum support. Various supports such as teaching adaptation, special examination arrangements (in-school and public examination), speech therapy services, remedial learning group, social skills training group and individual educational plans (IEP) would be arranged upon certain assessments.
(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; appointing additional teacher(s)/teaching assistant(s) to support NCS students’ learning of Chinese; arranging intensive Chinese learning and teaching mode(s), e.g. pull-out learning if necessary, split-class/group learning, etc.; developing school-based Chinese Language curriculum and/or adapting learning and teaching materials; organising cultural integration activities; and hiring additional manpower and/or translation/interpretation services to facilitate the communication with parents.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for Learning and Assessment : Within each school year, there are two term examinations and one formal test to assess the academic performance of the students. Apart from these, continuous assessments such as oral report, quiz and project learning in certain subjects are adopted by teachers.
Home-school Co-operation and School Ethos

- enhance parents' understanding of the school and strengthen communication.

(2) School Ethos : Our school has established a harmonious environment of care and love. Students are polite, considerate, self-disciplined and they support one another. We strive to nurture our students in physical fitness, self-discipline, responsibility, independent thinking, creativity, leadership and social skills. Various life education programmes on nurturing positive attitudes and values in students are implemented through the morning assemblies, hall assemblies and class-teacher periods.
