In order to enhance students' awareness of the importance of sustainability and to cultivate of the 'food wise' culture, our school works with the Environmental Protection Department to organise 'Pilot Programme on Provision of Small Food Waste Composters at School'.
Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy: : To facilitate the learning of English through language-across-the-curriculum, the policy of medium of instruction will be launched according to different abilities of the students and characteristics of subjects. In junior forms, we fully utilize the flexibility given by the EDB with extended learning activities in English proportion to 25% of the lesson time. There is a gradual adoption of using English as MOI at junior and senior secondary levels. To enrich English learning environment, we adopt team-teaching and split-class teaching from Form 1 to Form 6 and organize a wide variety of activities. In 2016, our F.1 boys were the winner in choral speaking at the 68th Hong Kong Schools Speech Festival. Putonghua Morning Assembly and the Curriculum Review on Putonghua and Chinese Language are conducted to enhance the effectiveness of the learning of Chinese Language and enrich the Putonghua learning environment.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies: : Through regular curriculum review, a variety of learning strategies and continuous professional development, we enhance the effectiveness of our teaching, instill in students positive attitudes, develop students' generic, self-regulated and lifelong learning skills and improve their performance in public examinations.
(3) School-based Curriculum: : 1. Electives: 2X. Total No. of electives: 13 (including Applied Learning); Total No. of subject combinations: 48
2. Curriculum highlights: To enhance the effectiveness of learning and teaching, the curricula of all subjects have been tailor-made to suit students' needs and interests. Knowledge, skill and attitude are explicitly nurtured in the junior forms so that the student could transit to the senior forms smoothly. Application of knowledge & generic skills in an integrative manner as well as an entrepreneurial spirit are fostered through a variety of life-wide learning. IT in education and STEM have been the main focus in the curriculum development recently. Students could be well-prepared for the future's learning as well as social needs.
(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks: : To provide students with a pleasant reading environment, the school has set up a reading corner on the rooftop and a digital library. To help students cultivate the habit of reading, a 'Reading Across the Curriculum Scheme' has been implemented. Under the Scheme, morning reading sessions, in which a wide range of reading materials are chosen for students, are incorporated into the timetable. Students are then invited to do reading sharing in class to help develop presentation skills. At home, students are required to complete on-line reading tasks daily both in Chinese and English. Reading is also promoted through activities co-organized by the library and different KLAs. Generic skills and positive values are developed through the learning and teaching of KLAs and other learning activities. Students acquire knowledge and skills through a variety of learning activities involved in projects. Self-directed, self-regulated and self-reflecting approaches of learning are promoted through project learning co-arranged by KLAs. The school implements mobile learning gradually in order to enhance the interaction during classes. In addition, the school encourages students to participate in exchange programs with National Education Centre. Our students have joined study tours to the Mainland, Taiwan, New Zealand etc. We aim at broadening our students' horizons through these kinds of activities.

Our mottoes this year are "Enhance students' positive values and attitudes, and further develop their potentials." To help our students achieve these and obtain better academic results, the school has implemented a lot of policies and organised various activities. For example, we devote a lot of care to our students through classroom management and 'Twin Form-Master Policy'. All teachers constantly make good use of different channels to communicate with students & parents. We strengthen students' whole-person development by arranging diverse programs on leadership and discipline training programs, community service scheme, career-planning programs for them. The Parent-Teacher Association and Old Boys' Association also encourage our students to strive for academic excellence in public examinations by awarding scholarships to the outstanding ones.
