School Management
(1)School's Major Concerns : Active Learning: Curriculum design, teaching strategies, learning assessment and on-line learning platform are adopted to foster students' active learning. We equip students with basic competence for self-regulated learning, cultivate good learning attitude and habits so that students know how to plan their learning progress and evaluate their learning outcome. Results of public exam can be enhanced as well.
Positive Education: We cultivate students with positive emotion, positive relationship and character strengths. We help students engage in school life, establish sense of achievement and discover meaning of life.
(2) School Management Organisation : There are ten departments, including Administration, Academic, IT, Careers, Moral & Civic Education, Discipline, Counselling, Extra-curricular Activities, Religious and General Affairs. Teachers are consulted when major decisions are made. School policies are open and fair. We encourage teachers to create a professional learning community, to support one another and to equip our students with skills needed for the future.

(4) School Green Policy : Environmental education is promoted by Moral & Civic Education Department and various subjects. There is an Environmental Ambassador in each class to implement energy-efficient and waste-reduction measures.
Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : We emphasize biliteracy and tri-lingualism. Extra resources have been allocated to enhance the English standard of our students. Based on the concept of gifted education, ability grouping is adopted in both junior and senior forms for class allocation. In the English Elite Class (F.1 & F.2), most of the modules of Integrated Science and Humanities & Liberal Studies will be taught in English for enhancing the use of English. Besides, English and Chinese remedial teaching is conducted with smaller class size, so as to better cater for students’ learning diversities. A self-access learning centre and an on-line learning platform have been set up. Learning activities are also organized by the NET to enhance students’ motivation and interest in learning English. Chinese Language is taught in Cantonese. To boost the Putonghua proficiency, we offer Putonghua lesson in all junior forms.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : We develop active learning continuously. Our vision is to create an enjoyable learning and teaching environment to enhance the teaching effectiveness. We hope our students will possess a good learning attitude with good learning habits. Among the teaching staff, we encourage them to create a learning circle to share their teaching skills. In Junior forms, we provide broad curriculum. For Senior forms, we offer Science, Arts and Commerce streams to meet the needs of our students and match the university entrance requirement. Apart from Extensive Reading Scheme of Chinese Language and English Language, we have Reading Lessons every week for students to build up their reading habit. Whole-school WiFi network and an on-line learning platform have been established and tablets have been purchased for implementing eLearning.
(3) School-based Curriculum : 1. Electives: 2X. Provide Arts, Science and Commercial subjects. Students can choose two subjects among the various Arts, Sciences and Commercial subjects.
2. Curriculum highlights: (i) Students who are gifted in English/Maths will be allocated to English elite class or Maths elite classes whereas Chinese, English and Maths remedial teaching is conducted with smaller class size in junior and senior forms. Class-based teaching materials are designed to cater for students’ learning diversities. (ii) School-based curriculum and teaching materials are adopted in Junior form Humanities & Liberal Studies, Life Education and senior form Liberal Studies. (iii) In senior forms, we have school-based subjects, including Visual Art, Music, Drama, Dancing and Creative Media. Common skills of students, such as communication and cooperation skills are sharpened, learning horizons is widened and self-confidence is enhanced through the preparation for the in-stage performance.
(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks : Reading to Learn: We have Reading Lessons every week, to build up students's reading habit. A special team is set up to promote reading habit and organize related activities.
Project Learning: It is adopted in the formal lessons of Junior Liberal Studies. Cross-curricular STEAM project learning programmes are also implemented among various subjects, such as science, computer, Maths, Design & Technology.
Civic and Moral Education: We strive to help students to develop good character and positive values towards life with focus on civil responsibility and voluntary service. Sex education starts in junior forms to nurture students with the right attitude towards sex.
For IT in Education, we have computers and visualizers in each classroom. Whole-school WiFi network and an on-line learning platform have been established and tablets have been purchased to provide the necessary environment for the successful implementation of eLearning. Continuous improvement in software and hardware of information technology enhances teaching and learning. A STEAM committee has been established to promote STEM education.
(5) Life Planning Education : With the theme of “self-realisation”, we aim to let students understand more about their interests, personalities and vocational preferences through workshops and talks.
Through seminars on choosing elective subjects, we enable Junior form students and parents to know more about the NSS structure and the mechanism for the allocation of subjects. Armed with such knowledge, they can then make more informed choices. Teachers provide senior form students the opportunity to have face-to-face counselling about life planning. The school social worker also provides service to students concerning career guidance. We take the initiative to meet with DSE candidates to review their academic results, set goals and study plans. We also give them encouragement where necessary. We provide mock interviews, a mock HKDSE result release day and internships in order to equip students for the challenges they will face later in life.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : Class streaming according to student academic ability. We introduce various learning workshops, such as learning skill, reading strategy and critical thinking skill training to students. We arrange school remedial classes to underachieving students. We adopt a “Dual Class Teacher” system in the Junior forms to strengthen student’s academic support and personal development. To help students with special educational needs develop their potential to the full, our school has set up a Special Education Needs (SEN) team to cater for their needs. For the sake of comprehensive support to students, full-time stationing services are also provided by a school-based social worker specialized in SEN, psychologist and speech therapist. We have established school policy to cater for students’ learning diversities.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : We have established the "Student Support Team" coordinated by the Vice-Principal. Members include SEN coordinator and teachers from Studies Department, Counselling Department, Discipline Department and core subjects. The team is responsible for coordinating, reviewing and implementing the various measures helping our SENS. We will make recommendations about giving an all-round support for our students and ways of promoting a culture of inclusiveness under the whole school development plan. A teaching assistant is arranged to give SENS support in their daily life. With the financial support of the Learning Support Grant from Education Bureau and our Sponsoring body, the school can provide the following professional services for students with special learning needs: school-based Education Psychologist service, counselling service provided by Registered Social Worker and Speech Therapy service. With the professional support from these experts, early interventions and assessments are possible. We can also provide our students follow-up programs and referrals as soon as possible. To broaden students’ learning experience and improve their social skills, we organize different types of activities for them, such as excursions, behavioral groups, social groups and game groups.
The school also arranges after-school tutoring for students with special learning needs and low achievers. It is conducted in small groups, giving better care for individual students. With the advice of Educational Psychologist, some SENs are given Test and Exam special arrangements when needed.
(3) Education Support for Non-Chinese Speaking(NCS) Students : Our school provides additional support for NCS students to facilitate their learning of Chinese: Individual counselling and support will be provided if necessary.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for Learning and Assessment : We emphasize the sustainable assessment and academic performance. In the class promotion/detention policy, we consider not just the academic results but also the conduct and attendance rate of students. We arrange assessment adjustments to accommodate the learning characteristics and abilities of SEN students.
Home-school Co-operation and School Ethos
(1) Home-School Co-operation : To enable parents to understand more about the school, we organise different activities for them. In recent years, we have developed parents voluntary service policy and let parents directly involve in the implementation of activities. The result is good.
(2) School Ethos : We put heavy emphasis on maintaining a pure and unsophisticated school climate. Dual class teachers and programmes are organized by Discipline and Counselling Departments, such as Self-actuation Scheme, All-rounded Development Award, Big Brothers & Sisters Scheme which cater for students’ individual needs. In moral and civic education, we introduce voluntary project, civic ambassador, environmental ambassador and health ambassador to equip our students. Through these activities, we equip our students with a positive value.
Future Development
(1) School Development Plan : Active Learning: Through curriculum design, teaching strategies, learning assessment and on-line learning platform, we aim to foster students’ active learning. We equip students with basic competences for self-regulated learning, cultivate good learning attitude and habits, so that students know how to plan their learning progress and evaluate their learning outcome. Results of public exam can also be enhanced.
