Tailored curriculum is conducted from S.1 to S.6 to cater for different needs. Meanwhile, Putonghua is offered as a compulsory subject at the junior secondary levels and activities such as Putonghua Speaking Day, Singing Contest, and Speech Competition are organised throughout the year.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : Whole-man Education: To achieve this goal, school-based curricula are organized to suit the needs and abilities of students. Life-wide learning is implemented to help students acquire essential skills through diversified learning experiences which include field trips and visits to destinations both within and outside Hong Kong. The school also coordinates with professional bodies to run programmes on self-management, communication, problem solving and leadership. The Board of Studies constantly reviews the curricula to meet the challenge of changing times. In devising their school-based curriculum, the subject panels take into consideration the abilities and interests of students, the latest philosophy of teaching and educational reforms. Liberal Studies is run in junior forms to foster creativity and critical thinking. There are also measures to nurture the gifted and maintain minimum standards. Additional classes are organized to raise the students' performance. Saturday tutorials are provided for English in S.4 to S.6.

(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks : To help build a reading environment, the school has an extensive reading scheme and morning reading session. Regular activities such as writers’ seminars, book exhibitions, book sharing by teachers and students are organized. After the implementation of these schemes, the number of books borrowed and reports submitted has been increasing significantly. Each year we receive prizes in the Hong Kong Chinese Book Report Competition. In order to motivate students and facilitate effective teaching, the use of IT in the curriculum is further integrated and a comprehensive data base is developed. Students with unique talents to enroll in online courses offered by the HK Academy for Gifted Education and summer enrichment courses of various universities. The STEAM education comprising Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math continues to nurture knowledge, positive values and generic skills in students. For example, S1 students learn the mechanics of aquaponics (co-existence of fish and plants) while S.2 students study basic programming and engineering design. To prepare our students for morally and civically responsible lives, the school, together with other professional bodies, offer a wide range of activities inside and outside the school to nurture positive values. Such efforts include dedicated moral and sex education lessons, class teacher periods, growth support activities, Little Tutor Scheme, Charming Group, and so forth. To meet the needs of today’s young people, topics of Civic Education are integrated into the Liberal Studies Curriculum with focus on promoting civic awareness and message of good citizens.
(5) Life Planning Education : In our school at different grade levels, life planning and career guidance lessons are conducted to foster students’ self-understanding, analyse their strengths and weaknesses, as well as introduce the various education and career opportunities. Through the empowerment of students, it is hoped that they will be able to make informed and responsible choices on their learning, career goals and other aspects of life. Between 2018 and 2020, the Careers Committee organised over 100 activities. For junior students, information on further studies and careers are disseminated by means of questionnaires, games, pamphlets, sharings at the morning assemblies and film shows in the afternoon. For S.3 students, the choice of streams and subjects for S.4 is of utmost importance. To equip them with the knowledge, an introductory talk is held in four consecutive afternoon sessions. A guidebook for the NSS curriculum is also printed to help them make the most suitable choice. Senior students have to face the challenge of going to university. A series of talks, seminars and visits are organised to inform them of the requirements and procedures. For those who wish to study abroad, we also help them sign up for talks related to further studies. To help students better understand the real workplace, we have organised over 30 activities which include summer internships. During the summer, short-term certificate courses are also run for students to broaden their career horizons. We also offer Applied Learning options (Western Food Preparation, Hotel Service Operations Child Care and Education, Sports and Fitness Coaching & Film and Transmedia Studies), so that S.5 students can attend supplementary programs outside the formal curriculum. Above all, the provision of individual counseling for all S.5 and S.6 students on further studies and careers has always been our focus. Each student has to take an online aptitude test and the results will be discussed later. This has proved of great value to our graduates.
