Our school creates an English-rich environment and maximizing students’ use and exposure to English, various activities are organized within and outside the school campus and worked jointly with other organizations. We cater for learner diversity through the development of core and extended curriculum. We help students develop as self-directed learners through e-learning & English-rich Environment activities. We implement the “Reading across the Curriculum” and cultivate students to have more exposures in reading. Five subjects (e.g. Mathematics, Commercial Studies, Integrated Science, Computer Literacy and Geography) will implement some extended English learning activities (ELA) from S.1 to S.3, so as to provide our junior form students with more opportunities to use English. Students actively participated in the cross-curricular activities, it was a fun way to learn both English and the content subject matters. For a better linkage with the New Senior Curriculum (NSS), some English language arts and English drama elements have been integrated into the junior secondary English curriculum.

Our school enables students to develop their generic skills through the formal and non-formal curriculum, and help students to cultivate positive values and attitudes.

Teachers set the appropriate learning goals and teaching strategies for students of different abilities to meet the students' needs. Our school endeavors to enhance the quality of teaching, teachers promote active student involvement throughout the learning environment, students of different levels can interact together at a level appropriate to the learning ability, which helps students develop learning skills and thinking ability. Teachers raise the confidence of students by giving lots of praise and giving feedback on task achievement.

Tailoring and adaptation are made to the school curriculum in order to better cater to the learning needs of students. For major subjects, school-based remedial lessons are conducted to cater for learner diversity so as to further enhance students’ performance. The school has been actively implementing collaborative learning with differentiated instruction. Apart from establishing a better learning atmosphere, we also promote friendly competitions and collaboration among students so as to encourage students' development. The Learning Support Grant for Secondary Schools (LSGSS) ensures that students with special educational needs are provided with professional support services.

We provide them with appropriate support by making good use of resources and establishing effective school policies and measures, aiming to enhance their multiple intelligences. The vice principal, SENCO, SENST, curriculum development leader and school social workers are responsible for leading the staff in the devising, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the support measures for students with SEN. Meetings chaired by SENCO in the presence of vice principal, educational psychologist, members of Student Support Team and concerned teachers are held regularly to review the effectiveness and progress of the school's support measures. In order to provide the most appropriate support to cater for students with SEN, we use the LSG to hire professional services and organize activities on inclusive culture and positive self-image. To enhance the learning motivation of students with SEN, we employ diversified teaching strategies and arrange various curriculum / assessment / homework accommodations. There is good home-school collaboration and regular communication between parents and teachers about the progress of students. Parent workshops are also organized to equip parents with better skills in supporting their children's individual needs.

(4) Measures to provide adaptation for Learning and Assessment : The objective of assessment is to facilitate students' learning. When setting assessment questions in language and all humanities subjects, questions of different levels of difficulty are designed so as to broaden and enhance students' thinking. To diversify the assessment mode, formative assessments have been adopted in all subjects. For instance, projects, oral presentations, e-reading and in-class quizzes, 25% of the Formative assessment is integrated with 5% for the homework policy. In class promotion meetings, a list for the class promotion and the class demotion of students will be discussed and finalized in accordance with students' academic results and conduct. The class teachers and Disciplinary Master or the Prefect of Studies meet parents to discuss how to help students improve themselves in academic or moral aspects.
Home-school Co-operation and School Ethos
(1) Home-School Co-operation : The aim of the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) is to strengthen the connection between families and our school and promote the co-operation between parents and teachers. Altogether it helps to provide a supportive atmosphere on campus. The PTA members also share the opinions of parents and monitor our school progress in the meetings held by the Incorporated Management Committee.

The school also fosters student-centred education. We develop students' potential and enhance their self-esteem and confidence through lessons, activities and services. Various award schemes have been actively implemented to encourage them to love themselves and others, and reflect for their self-betterment.
Future Development
(1) School Development Plan : 1. To develop the core and extended curriculum by fine-tuning and consolidation on teaching and learning materials and assessments to assist students with different abilities to make improvement.
2. With the adoption of appropriate subject-based teaching methodologies which are designed after analyzing the critical points, students can follow the teaching steps and improve in various learning interactions with teachers and students.
3. To unleash students’ potentials, enhance their confidence and boost their sense of achievements through participating in various activities.
4. To cultivate students’ ability to know about oneself, plan for oneself, set goals and reflect and build a linkage between career, studies and life-long learning through systematic career planning activities.
(2) Teacher Professional Training and Development : To cope with the rapid changing society and the needs of the New Senior Secondary Curriculum, teachers continuously strengthen their professional development through diversified learning and professional development programs so that their quality of education and students’ learning effectiveness can be enhanced. The CDP training of each teacher should be no less than 50 hours per year, in which the teachers' CPD activities, should be no less than 6 hours of practical learning other than the structured learning.

The professional development needs base on school situation. Teachers should, therefore, choose the focus of their professional development according to situational needs. The four major areas of development include: teaching and learning, student development, school development, and the relationship and service of professional bodies.

In addition, in order to make teacher’s professional development more meaningful and effective, teachers must first establish positive beliefs, values and attitudes, including the firm belief that every student can learn. They should be devoted to their own careers, dedicated to education and also care for students. They should treasure teamwork and be willing to share while having respect for differences and diversity. They should also enjoy continuous learning and pursue excellence. All these can bring positive changes to students, our school and teachers themselves.
Life-wide Learning (including Five Essential Learning Experiences to be provided through Key Learning Areas, Extra-curricular Activities, Co-curricular Activities, etc.) : In this academic year, our school provides 19 extra-curricular activity clubs in five categories, including Service, Academic, Religious, Interest and Physical Education. Through different types of activities, students can make good use of their leisure time, foster a variety of interests, learn to get along and collaborate with others. Students may learn to care about others and serve society by joining the Volunteer Service Team. In order to broaden students’ horizons and enrich their life experience, our school implements "Team Star" and "Elderly Academy".
