Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : The school is run with Christianity. All our teachers care and teach students without discrimination. To care students' mixed abilities, we offer small-group teaching for Chinese, English and Mathematics, and enhancement and remedial courses. The school has set up Student Support Team to provide support service to Special Educational Needs (SEN) students.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : Our school strives to build a culture of integration and acceptance, adopting a “Whole School Approach” in catering for Special Education Needs (SEN) students. With a learning support grant, additional funds and social resources, we provide SEN students with appropriate and diversified support to enhance their learning effectiveness and uncovering their potentials and interests for better integration in their school life.
Our SEN Support Team consists of an SEN coordinator, an educational psychologist, school social workers, teachers of Chinese, English, Mathematics and Liberal Studies, and a teaching assistant. Besides, there is collaboration between the SEN Support Team and other subjects or committees for concerted support for SEN students. Every year the learning support grant is flexibly used for subscribing to professional services which organize programmes for different SEN categories.

Diversified activities and adjustments to teaching are provided in support of non-Chinese speaking (NCS) students to facilitate their integration in school life and the mainstream curriculum. Through participation in cultural and language activities, NCS students can gain authentic experience for a good understanding of local and Chinese cultures. Adjustments to the curriculum alongside the “pull-out teaching mode” and after-school learning support class are provided to improve NCS students’ foundation knowledge of the Chinese language.
