School Characteristics School Characteristics
School Management
(1)School's Major Concerns : 1. Promoting diversified learning experiences and raising students’ self-expectations;
2. Nurturing students in spiritual growth and fostering positive values.
(2) School Management Organisation : The school has pioneered school-based management since 1991. The school operates through various teams. The staff displays strong team spirit and the school culture favours continuous improvement.
(3) Incorporated Management Committee / School Management Committee / Management Committee : The Incorporated Management Committee comprises 12 members, including 7 representatives of the Sponsoring Body, the School Principal, 1 independent member from the community, 1 teacher-elected representative, 1 parent-elected representative and 1 alumnus-elected representative.
(4) School Green Policy : The school attaches great importance to environmental education, which aims to build a sustainable campus and promote among students a lifestyle conducive to sustainable development at school, at home and in the community. To raise students’ awareness of environmental protection, the Environmental Studies Club holds activities such as recycling of food leftover, organic farming, Environmental Protection Week, Second-Hand Exchange Platform, the campus version of “Earth Hour” and Waste Reduction and Recycling Campaign. In an effort to reduce paper consumption, the school promotes e-learning across curriculum and issues school circulars on mobile apps. Furthermore, the School Promotion Team is running a number of programmes to create a green environment at school, for example, Rooftop Organic Garden, Plastic Collection and Upcycling. A team of Green Ambassadors has been set up since 2020 to help promote a green school to the public.
Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : The school's policy on the medium of instruction (MOI) is formulated on the basis of students' abilities, needs and learning effectiveness. In response to this, our teaching staff has already made necessary preparations and completed relevant professional training courses aimed at strengthening language and learning across the curriculum, including both DOLACEE and ILLIPS programmes as recommended by EDB. At present, apart from the English Language, Mathematics, Science (including Biology, Chemistry, Physics), the mother tongue (Chinese) is quite extensively used in the junior secondary curriculum, often aided with English. English is adopted to be the medium of instruction in Mathematics, Science (including Biology, Chemistry, Physics) in some classes to increase students' language exposure and opportunity to use English, thus enhancing the language learning environment and boosting students' confidence and motivation. In the senior secondary curriculum, several more subjects are taught in English, thus enabling students to choose the MOI that suits them most. The school attaches great importance to training students to be "bi-literate and tri-lingual". At least part of the English classes of all forms are run in small groups, with the assistance of the Native-speaking English Teacher. In the senior secondary classes, grouping according to abilities and reduction in class size have been adopted to improve the quality of teaching and learning of both the English and the Chinese languages. Besides, Putonghua is also taught in small groups in Secondary One.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : Spiritual, moral, intellectual, physical, social and aesthetic education forms the basis for our school's curriculum design, with a view to nurturing students to attain all-round development. By offering students a wide range of co-curricular activities, their potential is developed and a spirit of cooperation and service is fostered among them. The school values students' moral development and civic education, and responds positively to the curriculum reform. Apart from catering to students' needs, the school curriculum also meets current social demands. Much emphasis is put on religious and moral education, and affective education as well, which helps students in their character development. Students' participation and performance in extra-curricular activities are also valued. Remedial classes on Chinese, English and Mathematics are conducted in small groups for junior secondary students. Students are grouped according to their abilities so as to cater for diverse needs. As our school attaches great importance to completion of homework on time, a Homework Policy Enforcement Team is set up to ensure timely intervention and follow-up action with students for late submission of homework. Adequate basic knowledge and skills are taught to enable students to pursue Liberal Studies in the senior secondary years. To develop students' interest and foster a habit in reading, all teachers and students are required to read books or English newspaper during the reading period after the morning assembly. A 15-minute homeroom period is provided before dismissal each day so as to help promote students' good learning attitude and habit. Extensive reading programmes are launched by the two language subjects, aiming at improving students' language standard. To widen students' scope of reading, junior secondary students are required to read at least one book in each of the 8 Key Learning Areas in an academic year. Besides, information technology has been widely used in the school in both learning and teaching activities. In recent years, much emphasis has been put on mobile e-learning strategies to enhance the effectiveness of learning and teaching.
(3) School-based Curriculum : 1. Electives: 2X. Our school adopts the Student Option Programme (SOP) provided by EDB to assign elective subjects to S.4 students so as to maximise the satisfaction rate of students’ choices and to meet students’ needs.
2. Curriculum highlights: In order to facilitate learning and teaching, teacher-student ratio has been reduced in both junior and senior forms. In junior forms, remedial classes are conducted in small groups for core subjects, including Chinese, English and Mathematics, whereas in senior forms, the original four classes are divided into five groups in which students are streamed according to their abilities to cater for learning diversities. Project-based learning incorporating elements of STEM Education is implemented with an aim to boosting students’ creativity and enhancing their problem-solving skills. Drama teaching has been introduced in S.4 English curriculum to boost students’ confidence and arouse their interest in learning English. Various off-campus learning activities including visits, excursions, voluntary work, study tours are organized to expose students to learning opportunities in contexts outside the classroom and to enrich their learning experience.
(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks : Please refer to the previous paragraph on Learning & Teaching strategies.
(5) Life Planning Education : Life planning plays a significant role at school in fostering students’ self-understanding, personal planning, goal setting, reflective thinking and articulation to progressive pathways.
1. Life planning education is implemented in all forms, through which students are equipped with the knowledge, skills and attitude to make wise choices in accordance with their interests, abilities and orientations as well as connecting their career or academic aspirations with whole-person development and life-long learning.
2. Guidance on Individual Student Planning is provided to students in Forms 5 and 6 to enable them to make informed choices and to pursue their career goals.
3. Through various career-related activities, students can better understand their career orientations, know about the actual operation of different enterprises and learn the correct work attitude.
Student Support

Students of outstanding achievements would be given ample opportunities to develop their potentials through selective programs and competitions.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : Through the collaboration with parents and allocation of resources, the school provides various kinds of support to cater for students' learning diversity, including services addressing special educational and psychological needs, speech therapy and social training skills groups. A Student Support Team, headed by the SEN Coordinator and comprised of SEN teachers specialised in different subjects, has been set up to support students with diverse learning abilities and needs. Also, activities promoting an inclusive culture at school are held regularly.

Its executive committee is elected annually by all students and teachers, each casting one vote only. Students are affiliated to three different houses. Besides, there are about 30 clubs and interest groups, which fall into four categories, namely religious/services, academic interest, cultural and sports categories. The school puts a great emphasis on extra-curricular activities, and systematically records, evaluates and reports students' participation and performance.
With a grant of $1,166,106 (as of 7/9/2020) under the Life-wide Learning Grant of Education Bureau for this academic year, experiential learning activities are conducted to widen students’ horizons and achieve the aims of whole-person development.
