Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : Our school uses English as the medium of instruction in most of the classes in junior forms. To cater for learner diversity, some subjects in S.1-S.3 are taught in Chinese supplemented with extended learning activities in English. For details, refer to "Subjects offered 2020/21 and 2021/22" and our school webpage. Our policy is to create a language-rich environment to train students to become bi-literate and tri-lingual. The policy is implemented through tri-lingual assemblies, extensive reading lessons and schemes, activities in the English Zone, English Club, English Charity Days and Putonghua Club, etc.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : We aim at enhancing learning and teaching effectiveness through curriculum planning and adaptation, teachers’ collaboration, multiple learning activities and assessment for learning. Through the implementation of school-based curriculum, we strategically incorporate life-wide learning in our teaching and student learning. Our teachers plan lessons collaboratively, arrange lesson study and share their teaching experiences and resources regularly. Our teachers also take part in various professional development programmes organized by EDB. In addition, we strive for additional resources in order to raise the quality of learning and teaching, such as joining Seed Projects of Education Bureau on curriculum development and applying for QEF Fund. A variety of assessment tools are used to provide teachers with comprehensive information about student learning in order to enhance learning and teaching effectiveness. In this school year, our school has successfully applied for QEF projects on learning and teaching: Developing effective learner in junior secondary curriculum and Cultivating self-directed learner in junior secondary: Mathematics. Besides, in this school year, our English Department participated in the Quality Education Fund Thematic Network (QTN-T) Enhancing Assessment Literacy of Teachers in Primary/Secondary Schools organized by Hong Kong University.
(3) School-based Curriculum : 1. Electives: 2X and 3X. Senior secondary students can take two or three elective subjects and Mathematics Extended Part Module 2. For details, please refer to "Subjects Offered in 2020/21 and 2021/22".
2. Curriculum highlights: Bridging Course is launched in S.1 to help students adapt to the new ways of learning in secondary education. STEM Education is provided to strengthen students' abilities in the area of Science, Technology and Mathematics. To help S.3 students make subject choices and to prepare them for the Senior Secondary Education, they study various subjects to be offered in the Senior Secondary Curriculum. Life education is incorporated in the formal curriculum through various subjects such as Ethics and Liberal Studies as well as in the informal curriculum such as spiritual education, class teacher periods and life wide learning days.
(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks : We aim to develop students to be effective learners. Study Skill Curriculum is adopted in Junior Forms in order to help students become self-directed learners. STEM Education is provided to strengthen students' abilities in the area of Science, Technology and Mathematics and to enhance integrated application and problem-solving skills. As Information Technology is a means to enhance learning and teaching effectiveness and promote self-directed learning, BYOD scheme is adopted. Students have access to online learning schemes and their performance in online learning is assessed. Moral and Civic Education is one of the major concerns of our school. We adopt a whole-school approach in nurturing our students to be responsible, respectful, honest and self-disciplined citizens. Moral and Civic Education is implemented through both formal and informal curriculum. In the formal curriculum, it is introduced in subjects such as Ethics and Liberal Studies. In the informal curriculum, class teacher periods, talks by guest speakers during hall assemblies and sharing by teachers and students during morning prayers all carry the corresponding elements. Topics of local, national and international concerns are touched upon. Moral issues are also discussed. Meanwhile, all S.4 students frequently participate in various voluntary services (e.g. Community Youth Club, flag-selling and visit to the homes for the elderly) outside classroom.
(5) Life Planning Education : Our school aims at carrying out career and life planning initiatives in a whole-school approach. We provide students with opportunities and support for career and life planning in all levels. The Career and Life Planning Committee helps students develop values, attitude, knowledge and skills needed for making wise choice, managing transition in learning and moving into the workplace. To facilitate individual student planning, career counselling and consultation sessions are conducted by career teachers to help S.3 and S.6 students plan and make successive, interlocking decisions on choices of study. Different kinds of career activities such as S.6 talk on JUPAS programme selection and talk on subject selection and mock release of HKDSE results are organized for students, teachers and parents. Customized programmes like interview workshop, personal statement writing workshop, life planning camp, firm visit and university visit are arranged. Moreover, we have set up a career information corner and two career rooms. We have our annual career day in which alumni from different professions share their job experiences with students in small groups intimately. We have been collaborating and networking with experienced NGOs like HYC, the HKFYG and the HKACMGM to step up career and life planning programmes tailored to our student needs.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : There are afterschool homework guidance classes for S.1 and S.2. Remedial classes for S.1-S.6 students are held after school. To cater for students’ learning interest and learning needs, S.4 to S.6 classes are split into groups. Subject panels and committees have formulated strategies to cater for student diversity. In 2013-2015, we had joined EDB's "Whole school approach to Catering for Learner Diversity Project" to develop effective teaching and learning strategies. We had successfully applied for QEF to the implement the project “Catering for learning diversity using e-learning tools in English Language teaching” in S4 in 2018-19.

We have a team of enthusiastic parent volunteers who serve in various school functions such as S1 registration, Parents’ Day, etc and perform daily duties at school. There is close bonding between home and school. Parents of graduates still participate in PTA activities.
