School Management
(1)School's Major Concerns : We strive to build a ‘Caring Campus’ with caring and inclusive learning culture, and are committed to put the ideology of ‘Success Education’ into practice. We provide a broad and diversified curriculum and employ diversified teaching strategies to cater for the needs of students with different abilities so that all students could fully develop their potential and be ‘The Pride of CNC’.
(2) School Management Organisation : We adopt an open school-based management mode and value communication, teamwork and cooperation. The school’s policies and important administrative measures are formulated by the administration committee, and implemented after thorough discussion in the staff meeting. All staff are involved in the sustainable development and self-improvement plan of the school. Under the administration committee are committees of two major areas, learning and teaching and student development, subject and teams, which work closely with each other. Class council for each form provides a platform where class teachers and support teachers work together to strengthen learning and support.
(3) Incorporated Management Committee / School Management Committee / Management Committee : The Incorporated Management Committee was established in 2006. Members include Sponsoring body managers, principal, parent managers, teacher managers, alumni manager and individual managers. It allows different stakeholders to participate in school management so that school development and policies can meet the expectations of different stake holders.
(4) School Green Policy : We are committed to building an environmentally friendly campus. Working with partners from various environmental organizations, we provide ample opportunity for students to take part in environmental protection through activities in both formal and informal curriculum. Our campus implements recycling programs, including food waste, plastic, and waste paper. In terms of emission reduction and energy saving, we use energy-saving fluorescent tubes and set up solar farms on rooftops to make good use of renewable resources. In terms of greening the environment, we have set up an organic farm for students to practice organic farming.
Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : Our language policy takes students’ learning effectiveness as our major concern. We firmly believe that mother language is the best medium for learning, eliminating all the learning difficulties and obstacles caused by the use of second language, thereby enhancing students’ learning motivation and interest. At the same time, we also attach great importance to the requirement of "biliteracy and trilingualism" for students. We increase English lesson hours in both junior and senior forms to incorporate drama, movies, and readers into English curriculum. Terms in English are taught in various subjects to expand students' vocabulary list. To build up an English environment, reading across curriculum, English weeks etc. are implemented to provide opportunities for students to further improve their English proficiency. We have reading classes every day, and implement the Chinese and English Extensive Reading Award Scheme, Online Reading Award Scheme, Putonghua Recitation Competition, Inter-community Debate Competition, School Magazine and Campus TV student reporters scheme etc. to train up students’ all round 'biliterate and trilingual' ability.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : We practice ‘success education’ in teaching with small steps, quick feedback, more encouragement and appreciation. Students can easily understand and master so as to build up their confidence in learning and self-efficacy, and thereby enhancing their motivation and interest in learning. To further develop students' to be active learners with life long learning skills, we implement student-centred learning strategy. By training students to take notes in class and organize concepts, we equip students with self-learning skills. We also strive to develop the students' self learning habit and ability by introducing flipped classroom teaching strategy with various pre-lesson study tasks and post-lesson assessment activities.
(3) School-based Curriculum : 1. Electives: 2X. Students are required to choose 2 elective subjects from 12 subjects including Arts, Science, Humanities and Technology subjects.
2. Curriculum highlights: To enhance students’ generic skills, the school carefully designs school-based cross-curricular courses, with particular emphasis on students’ learning process and teaching strategies. Students are required to apply and integrate the knowledge learnt from different subjects in a specific thematic study. It also aims at raising students' ability of problem solving, critical thinking, and creativity etc.
(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks : Please refer to the "Others" field.
(5) Life Planning Education : We implement an all round life planning education. Junior forms life planning classes let students know themselves, set direction and learning goals. Through personal counseling and experiential learning such as mock interview and recruitment, aptitude test etc., senior form students develop a positive life attitude and have a more specific planning. To broaden students’ horizons, school implements "Human Library" that invites alumni and professionals from various industries to share their experience with students in small groups. We also participate in the "Project WeCan" intern and workplace visit program, "Teach Unlimited Foundation" and "Life Buddies" mentorship program in cooperation with our business partners. We organize overseas study tours to allow senior form students to know more about the path of study overseas.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : We implement small-class teaching at the junior levels to cater for learning diversity. To leave no students behind, we provide small group remedial teaching, after-school homework tutoring and mentoring scheme etc. We also provide after-school gifted classes to extend learning of the top students. To cater for learning diversity, we employ differential learning tasks and worksheets. We also make arrangements in assessments to take care of students with different abilities, but at the same time provide opportunity for the top students to pursue excellence.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : The school attaches great importance to the diversity of students. The Vice principal coordinates the work of Integrative Education, leading all subjects and student supporting teams, educational psychologists and speech therapists to develop a holistic strategic support plan and IEP for students with special educational needs. The school employ social workers and counselors to provide social and learning training for the students with needs. Our school establishes effective communication mechanism with parents so that they are well informed of their children's learning in school.
(3) Education Support for Non-Chinese Speaking(NCS) Students : Our school provides additional support for NCS students to facilitate their learning of Chinese: providing after-school support programmes in learning Chinese; appointing additional teacher(s)/teaching assistant(s) to support NCS students’ learning of Chinese; arranging intensive Chinese learning and teaching mode(s), e.g. pull-out learning if necessary, split-class/group learning, etc.; developing school-based Chinese Language curriculum and/or adapting learning and teaching materials; and organising cultural integration activities.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for Learning and Assessment : We adopt diversified continuous assessment policy. In addition to one exam in each semester, we have regular uniform tests to develop students habit of learning. With reference to the different nature of subjects, assignments, quizzes, reports and extensive readings are included in the assessment. We make special arrangements in assessment to evaluate students of different abilities, and set up a challenging part to extend the top students potential. Class promotion is based on holistic assessment of students, and learning attitude is the most important criterion.
Home-school Co-operation and School Ethos
(1) Home-School Co-operation : School and parents work closely together. Through day camp, tour and parents day, parents and teachers exchange ideas freely. In addition, the 'Chicken Soup for Soul' activity organized by the Parent Teacher Association provides a relaxing communication platform for parents and teachers. Our school invites parents to participate in the school’s activities so that parents can experience the culture and atmosphere of the school.
(2) School Ethos : We adopt a positive discipline mode that focuses on encouragement and appreciation of students’ good behavior. We implement the "Star Scheme" and "Rainbow Award Scheme". The effect is remarkable. Students are well behaved and respect school rules. School's atmosphere is positive and inclusive, teachers and students with good rapport. We have been awarded the Caring School Award for 13 consecutive years from 2007 to 2020, and the "Best Caring Teaching Staff" award in 2011. We attach importance to the health and growth of students and implement the Sunshine 360 healthy school program to enhance students’ ability to cope with adversity through adventure based counseling activities. We received the Honor Award and Special Award of Hi-Five Student Engagement Award Scheme in 2019 and 2020 respectively.

In recent years, schools have focused on improving teachers' use of e-learning software to meet the needs of self-regulated learning and online teaching.
Life-wide Learning (including Five Essential Learning Experiences to be provided through Key Learning Areas, Extra-curricular Activities, Co-curricular Activities, etc.) : Life-wide learning activities provide students with learning experience outside classrooms. In addition to the co-curricular activities of house, clubs and societies, there are special school-based "Friday Classroom" curriculum that offers diversified courses, allowing students to fully develop their talents and skills in sports, arts, leadership as well as hobbies and lifestyle. 'Academy for the Elders' and voluntary services promote the inclusion of elders and young and develop students sense of commitment in serving the underprivileged and the society. The students have performed well in physical education, among which the handball team is the most outstanding. We organize overseas study tours every year. The places we have visited include Japan, Singapore, Inner Mongolia, Xi'an and many other places, so that students can develop a global perspective and have a better understanding of the world and nation. We also provide ample field study opportunities to let students apply knowledge to authentic situations.
