Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : The medium of instructions for junior students is mainly in English so as to enhance their English efficacy. Senior students can select the medium of instructions for their elective subjects in order that they can fully grasp the subject knowledge and achieve the best grades.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : Our school advocates “CHING-CHUNG G21 Empowerment Learning” which refers to Ching-Chung’s use of Google to offer empowerment learning for students in the 21st century. What is the main objective of empowerment learning? We believe the assistance provided from parents and teachers to children whenever they encounter difficulties is temporary only. The ultimate educational goal should be to empower children to be responsible for their own learning. Teachers’ step-by-step guidance throughout the learning process and letting students stand on their own feet at the right time are all crucial to develop their ability to learn how to learn. The two main keys to the success of empowerment learning lie on whether we believe our students have the ability to learn how to learn and whether we can offer appropriate kits and strategies to empower their learning.

In order to provide appropriate kits and strategies to facilitate empowerment learning, we are going to further develop our original “K-U-C-A” (Knowing-Understanding-Consolidating-Asking) teaching methodology on a Google-based interactive e-learning platform which allows students to learn beyond the limits of time and space. Teachers would be able to tailor-make diversified teaching materials on this platform to better cater for individual students’ needs. Materials like tutorial videos, lesson broadcast, interactive surveys, live-broadcast of activities, lesson notes, and assessments will all be made available on the platform to facilitate students’ learning. Students can make full use of the materials for lesson preparation and consolidation. They would also be able to discuss with their peers and teachers, ask each other questions, do exercises and assignments, take assessments, and receive timely feedback inside and outside classrooms. Moreover, students are allocated into classes according to mixed abilities so as to avoid labeling effects. However, for the subjects of Chinese Language, English Language and Mathematics, students are allocated into different small groups according to their abilities to cater for their individual needs.
(3) School-based Curriculum : 1. Electives: 3X. We offer more than 300 subject combinations to suit students' individual interests and ability to prepare them for their future.
2. Curriculum highlights: We provide various activities to promote students’ sense of responsibility, respect and care for others, as well as the ability to differentiate right from wrong. The activities are : DEAR Time (Drop Everything And Read), morning assemblies, lunch time activities, weekly assemblies, pastoral time, co-curricular activities and other whole-person activities.

Moreover, in order to increase learning efficacy, we design school-based curricula for Business Studies, Chinese History, Christian Education, English Drama, Information and Communication Technology, STEM in junior forms.
(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks : Through DEAR TIME reading, morning assemblies, lunch time activities, Religious Education, pastoral time and local and overseas study trips, we instill moral and civic education in students.

We develop students' learning habits through daily editorial reading in the morning, DEAR time and other reading programmes.

With the support of our school’s wireless network system, the use of Chromebook, Google applications and other e-learning platforms enable our students to develop good self-learning habits.
(5) Life Planning Education : We collaborate with Chinese YMCA of Hong Kong (Life Planning Section) to offer our school-based life planning programme, which aims at fostering students’ self-understanding, personal planning and goal setting abilities. Through various career exploration opportunities, including workplace visits, career talks, Chinese New Year Fairs, mock interview workshops, career tests, and summer internship programmes, students are equipped with the necessary knowledge, skills and attitude to make well-informed and wise choices in accordance with their own interests, abilities and orientations.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : In order to cater for individual needs, students are allocated into different small groups according to their abilities for the subjects of Chinese Language, English Language and Mathematics. We have two different timetables for the first and second terms in order to provide our students with suitable and flexible courses to suit their needs. For senior forms, we offer more than 300 subject combinations to suit students’ individual interests and ability to prepare them to make the best choice for their future. We organize after-school courses to cater for students’ different learning needs and their growth.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : The Inclusive Educational Committee of our school is led by one of our assistant principals (obtaining the Master Degree in Special Educational Needs). The other members of the Committee include our school Special Educational Needs coordinator, school social workers, resourceful teachers as well as subject teachers. The Committee aims at providing developmental and counselling work. It systematically offers supports and trainings to teachers, designs appropriate programs and assessments for students and NCS students with different needs in order to cater for their needs in learning and growth timely. Moreover, we will invite external professionals to provide support and counselling for students with different needs and their parents. Special programs supported by external professionals include Chinese and English writing program, attention training, and social skill training.
(3) Education Support for Non-Chinese Speaking(NCS) Students : Our school provides additional support for NCS students to facilitate their learning of 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. Our school will arrange NCS students to take the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE-CN) and the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE,GCE-CN).
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for Learning and Assessment : In the assessment of teaching and learning, we put emphasis on the application of Assessment for Learning to enhance the effectiveness of students’ learning. Subject teachers adjust their method of assessment according to students’ ability for timely and appropriate feedback. We therefore conduct various kinds of formative assessments to evaluate students’ progress in order to offer more incentive for them to learn actively and effectively. In practice, teachers of junior forms adjust the progress to suit students’ ability in order that they can learn towards an objective.
(5) Fee Remission : Our school offers a school fee subsidy scheme for students in need. Needy students, including those from families receiving the Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA) and students receiving financial assistance provided by the Student Financial Assistance Agency (SFAA) could apply for fee remission. Application can be submitted at anytime and the subsidy can be offered up to a full year of the school fee remission.
- Please visit the web-link in our school’s website for details of school fee remission scheme, including the family income limits.
Home-school Co-operation and School Ethos
(1) Home-School Co-operation : We have set up the Parents’ Resources Centre in order to strengthen the bond and collaboration between parents and the school. In addition, the Home-School Collaboration Committee encourages parents to take part in various activities.
(2) School Ethos : We follow and practise our school motto “Glorify God and Love Others”. We encourage our students to cultivate a well-balanced character based upon the Bible to meet the challenges of the ever-changing world. In such harmonious learning atmosphere, students can truly develop a character of self-respect as well as respect for God and others.
