School Characteristics School Characteristics
School Management
(1)School's Major Concerns : 1. Consolidate and optimise classroom learning effectiveness through cross-disciplinary collaboration and building habits of filling out reflective journals.
2. Cultivate a high standard in students' self-efficacy (self-management, self-discipline, self-cultivation, and self-achievement) through life education.
(2) School Management Organisation : The Incorporate Management Committee consists of experienced educators, priests, members from the community, teacher representatives, parent representatives and alumni representatives. The chairman of the Incorporated Management Committee (IMC) is the School Supervisor appointed by the Bishop of the Hong Kong Catholic Diocese. Members of the IMC include appointed School Sponsoring Body (SSB) Managers, elected Parent Managers and elected Teacher Managers as well.
(3) Incorporated Management Committee / School Management Committee / Management Committee : The Incorporated Management Committee comprises 14 members, including 7 representatives of the School Sponsoring Body, the School Principal, 1 independent member from the community, 2 teacher-elected representatives, 2 parent-elected representatives and 1 alumni-elected representative.
(4) School Green Policy : We encourage recycling by placing recycling bins in the school campus. Trees are widely planted to provide a green environment. An energy-saving air-conditioning system which always keeps the indoor temperature at 25.5°C has been installed to reduce power consumption.
Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : The policy of bi-literacy and tri-lingualism is implemented in our school. On the one hand, English is adopted as the MOI for Non-Chinese speaking students so as to set up an English-rich environment. On the other hand, Junior Form students (S.1-S.3) are taught in their mother tongue while some Senior Form students (S.4-S.6) are taught in English according to their individual abilities. In addition, Extended Learning Activities (ELA) are implemented in the two non-language subjects, namely, Mathematics and Integrated Science in Junior Forms.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : The whole school year is divided into two terms. To cater for learning uniqueness, streaming arrangement and small class setting are adopted. Some classes are taught in different ability groups for English, Chinese and Mathematics subjects. A variety of teaching approaches, e.g. flipped classroom, collaborative learning, project-based learning, e-learning and etc, are employed to facilitate teacher-student interaction as well as student-student interaction and to encourage students to think, express themselves or do self-learning. Continuous assessment is used in all levels to facilitate learning and monitor learning progress. In common periods, teachers meet to design teaching materials and activities for lessons, evaluate students’ progress and reflect on their teaching effectiveness so as to seek improvement in teaching. We also strive to develop a “school-based curriculum” to cater for students’ needs & abilities.
(3) School-based Curriculum : 1. Electives: 2X. There are 10 elective subjects for Senior Form students to choose. The elective subjects would be assigned to S.4 students so as to maximise the satisfaction rate of students’ choices and to meet their learning needs.
2. Curriculum highlights: The school is focusing on the development of the STEAM Education Aviation Curriculum. Besides Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, we have added on the elements Art and Aviation. Through STEAM, students can learn physics and astronomy knowledge. Through assembling robots and writing programs, students can also develop their knowledge in computer programming and engineering. Art is an indispensable element of STEAM education because any product would become raw and lifeless without it. As for Aviation, it helps students join the aviation industry by learning UAV operating skills and aviation knowledge.
To meet the senior secondary curriculum and the needs of our students, we develop a school-based curriculum which includes: Liberal Studies (S.1 to S.3), Ethics and Religious Studies, English Drama. Other than the learning in the classroom, our curriculum provides students with sufficient opportunities for life-wide learning, which includes: visits, excursions, voluntary work and study tours, so as to extend and enrich their learning experience.
(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks : 1. Reading to Learn: There are morning reading sessions of different themes for students and teachers to read together. Seminars on sharing of reading experience are held on a regular basis. To encourage writing, we invite famous writers to come to our school to share their writing experience with students. Extensive reading is promoted in each Key Learning Area (KLA) so as to expand students’ knowledge in that area. Strategies to promote extensive reading have been carried out by different subjects in addition to the class-based reading award schemes of language subjects, so as to promote Reading across the curriculum.
2. Information technology for Interactive learning. E-learning is used to promote Self-directed Learning of students.
3. Project Learning: With individual, group, subject, across subjects projects, the integration and application of knowledge and skills across disciplines is promoted.
4. Moral and Civic Education: Values Education is promoted through morning assemblies, class-teacher lessons, Ethics and Religious Studies, Chinese Language lessons, Chinese History lessons, volunteer work, as well as social services. In so doing, students are also encouraged to care about the disadvantaged in society.
(5) Life Planning Education : The Career and Life Planning Committee aims at helping students to understand the relationship between personality traits and career options before setting their goals. Career planning is the continual process of managing their learning and work to progress through their lives. It includes gaining and using the skills and knowledge needed to plan and make informed decisions about studying and work. With so many choices, it can be challenging to know what direction to take. The committee makes the best use of resources from both universities and professional organizations to have diversified life-planning education programmes, which include workshops on self-exploration, study and career talks. Additionally, career aptitude tests, mock interview workshops, visits and support for SEN students and S.6 students. We also support teachers and parents in helping students set their goals and career paths.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : Our school has both a core and an extended curriculum to cater for students’ different learning abilities. Junior students have to stay after school for an hour to finish their homework every day. Senior students can choose academic, physical education, practical or Applied Learning courses according to their abilities and interests. For students with special education needs, we have an Individualized Education Program (IEP) which provides personal assistance for their learning. For students with lower abilities, we provide after-school guidance and adaption in both the curriculum and assessments for them.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : My school SENCO is required to lead the student support team to plan strategically, implement, monitor, review and evaluate various support measures for SEN students and the resource deployment which would include the appropriate use of the Learning Support Grant and the flexible deployment of the school’s manpower resources; to promote early identification and intervention for SEN students through a multi-disciplinary team approach; to collaborate with other teachers/functional teams in the school through the WSA to devise support programmes, curriculum and teaching adaptations, and special exam and assessment arrangements for SEN students; to guide fellow teachers in the school to make use of effective support strategies to enhance the learning effectiveness of SEN students through arrangements such as collaborative lesson planning and co-teaching; to collaborate with the guidance team in the school to cater for the learning needs of students with mental illness by giving input from the perspectives of teaching and learning as well as resource deployment, and to strengthen mental health education; to enhance home-school co-operation and work with parents to support SEN students; to review the special education training needs and profiles of teachers in the school, arrange teachers to receive relevant training in a systematic manner, and plan and organise school-based professional development activities to enhance the capacity of the teaching team; and to strengthen external liaison with parties such as professionals, community resources providers and parents to better coordinate various parties and resources for supporting SEN students in the 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 continuous school-based assessments with a variety of methods and put the different aspects of students’ performance into consideration. There are two terms in each school year and there is a uniform test and an exam in each term. Teachers adjust the teaching progress and strategies according to the assessment results.
Home-school Co-operation and School Ethos
(1) Home-School Co-operation : Our school has established a parent-teacher association and we value parents’ participation. Workshops are held occasionally to help parents establish a good relationship with their kids and school. We take parents as our partners and are willing to listen to them and respond to their opinions.
(2) School Ethos : We have a simple ethos. Our teachers and students strive to excel and there is a good teacher-student relationship. Through the class management, mentorship scheme, Life Education, interview with students, award schemes, Student of the Month Program and Lunchtime Program, student-teacher communication is increased. Students can grow in an environment filled with Christ’s love and hence establish an ethos of love and care.
Future Development
(1) School Development Plan : Under the “Blueprint for School’s Strategical Development”, we focus on:
1. Pushing forward with Catholic Education.
2. Improving the quality of teaching and learning.
3. Students’ development and establishing a school ethos of love and care.
4. Establishing good partnership with the community and making good use of community resources.

“Truth: Understand it; Live it; Uphold it” is the major concern of this year. This year, we will
1. Consolidate and optimise students' classroom learning effectiveness through cross-disciplinary collaboration and building students' habits of filling out reflective journals.
2. Cultivate a high standard in students' self-efficacy (self-management, self-discipline, self-cultivation, and self-achievement) through life education.
(2) Teacher Professional Training and Development : Common periods for lesson preparation, peer lesson observations, professional sharing of good practices in classrooms/homework design are measures to optimize teaching. To meet the needs of students and curriculum development, teachers participate actively in various seminars and workshops for professional development. Furthermore, some of our teachers have taken the Master of Education course and other courses for professional development.
Life-wide Learning (including Five Essential Learning Experiences to be provided through Key Learning Areas, Extra-curricular Activities, Co-curricular Activities, etc.) : At YCK2, Life-wide Learning plays a significant role in students’ learning, specifically learning in authentic situations which break through the traditional classroom settings. The emphasis of ‘Experiential Learning’ facilitates students to pursue whole-person development and help build up a habit of self-directed learning that are the essential qualities in this era of ever-changing society. Such unconventional way of learning experiences effectively motivates our dynamic and multinational students to explore and acquire knowledge from different perspectives.

Our Life-wide learning activities touch on five key learning area. They consist of:
1. Intellectual Development (e.g. visits to exhibitions and field trips)
2. Moral and Civic Education (e.g. leadership trainings, experiential learning camps and military camps)
3. Community Service (e.g. service learning and uniformed groups)
4. Physical and Aesthetic Development (e.g. sports competitions and English drama performances)
5. Career-related Experiences (e.g. work experience programmes and visits to enterprises)

Over the past year, our students won the championship in ‘Youth First Aid Competition (Southern District H.K. Island Division 2019-20)’, ‘Watson Group H.K. Student Sports Award’, 2nd Runner-up in both English prose reading and solo verse categories of 71st H.K. Speech Festival, and the First Place in ‘H.K. Biology Literacy Award’ hosted by H.K. Association for Science & Mathematics Education, in collaboration with Royal Society of Biology and several universities of Hong Kong. Our students’ achievements in Life-wide Learning are stunning and heartening.
Others : 1. Our students would have the opportunity to participate regularly in training activities in the Huizhou Sports School, our sister school in the Mainland.
2. To encourage students to get involved actively in their school life, get the best in academic results, cultivate good virtues and develop multi-intelligence and leadership skills, there are 12 types of scholarship opportunities for our students.
3. We also provide students with Life-wide learning opportunities in which many local and overseas study tours are organized for them to enrich their learning experiences.
4. The school also cares about the spiritual and physical development of the students by encouraging every S.1 student to join one of the uniform groups and the whole school to participate in social services.
