Each form covers tailor-made lessons and activities for the sake of fitting the needs of each level and the school development. This is especially important for the senior form students, who receive regular CLP lessons. A wide range of topics, from knowing oneself to knowing the world of work, as well as knowing the spectrum of pathways leading to different careers, is included. There are also practical sessions on personal grooming, such as skin care, as well as how to dress and conduct yourself in a job interview.

These functions do enhance the communications between parents and teachers, parents and parents and even parents and students.

There is also a wide range of training courses including musical instruments, foreign languages, art and design, archery etc. held over the weekend. Music and leadership training activities are the foci of development in recent years to give students a rich & vibrant school life. Our students perform well in interschool competitions and win numerous prizes in debating, speech, music, sports, art etc. The Mathematics teaching video "RHS" (side-angle-side) produced by our MCTV was widely circulated on the internet and won wide acclaim.
