At the junior level, a language arts programme has been implemented. Native English speakers are hired to teach students drama and poetry appreciation, while our EDB NET teacher teaches public speaking. We provide an English learning environment in assemblies, after school and in many activities for students to use English.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : We believe that students are willing to learn. If they are provided a complete opportunity to learn, they will excel. Now we focus our attention on developing learning and teaching strategies that are compatible with the curriculum reform, and will take a step further in enhancing the academic achievement of the students by developing them as responsible learners and promoting a learning culture in school. Another focus is to further raise the level of English proficiency through extended learning activities and the change of the medium of instruction into English in some academic subjects. The "Student Learning Development Committee" promotes forums, school exchanges, peer learning, etc.

Through teacher professional development workshops, training and sharing sessions, teachers acquire necessary techniques to deliver positive education, to foster growth mindset, and to build a positive school environment for students.

Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : Teachers share the responsibility to cater for learners’ diversity. Under the same curriculum, learning activities are arranged in accordance with students’ abilities to facilitate their learning. Our "GEMS Programme" and "EXCEL Programme" in junior forms give special opportunities to elites. As for senior forms, enhancement and remedial classes of all subjects are provided. Besides, individual tutorials are provided for the students who have special learning needs. IEPs are used to cater for those students in need of individual intensive support.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : We are committed to employing a whole school approach to build an inclusive culture in school. By using the Learning Support Grants, we provide appropriate and diversified support services:
1. Academic support: We have been providing after-school individual homework tutorials for junior form SEN students and subject-based tutorials for senior form SEN students. Differentiated learning materials and examination accommodations are provided to students who have special educational needs.

2. Inclusive culture: To further strengthen an inclusive culture, we run a regular junior form inclusive education programme to educate students to accept and appreciate uniqueness and individual differences.

3. Learning Support Grant: We hire professional services such as social skills training, attention training programs, speech therapy, etc. to enhance students’ interpersonal social skills and broaden their horizons.

4. Home-school cooperation: We strongly value the importance of home-school cooperation of SEN students. Communication is the key to success. Parents are invited to discuss and support the needs of SEN students so that students can grow holistically.

To ensure the quality of Student Support Team’s programmes, the process of PIE, planning, implementation and evaluation is employed to regularly review the effectiveness of the support services.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for Learning and Assessment : We provide continuous assessment on students' performance in class, assignments and tests. To further evaluate the effectiveness of the assessment accommodations, we conduct exam invigilator reports for individual students for both term examinations. After studying the reports, we modify the assessment accommodations and support measures according to the evaluation results, and give constructive feedback to students so as to promote assessment as learning.
Home-school Co-operation and School Ethos
(1) Home-School Co-operation : The Parent-Teacher Association has been established since 1994. Through comprehensive communication channels including bi-weekly parents’ letters, the school has a good relationship with the parents.

Apart from encouraging parents to participate in school functions and act as parent volunteers, the Association jointly organizes parenting seminars and parent-child activities so that parents can understand the needs of their daughters at different developmental stages.

Besides, the Association also assists the school with a variety of school activities that enrich students’ learning experiences, namely a book-sharing session, Arts in Action and post-exam activities.
(2) School Ethos : A positive school ethos contributes to a harmonious yet disciplined and orderly school life. We not only believe that a close teacher-student relationship facilitates learning and teaching, peers also help and encourage each other through schemes like the Academic Prefect, "Alumni Support", etc.
