To enhance the effectiveness of learning and teaching, eLearning and Self-directed Learning are our major concerns to facilitate students’ learning through personalised note-taking and study skills to help them become independent and life-long learners.

We also provide enrichment programmes and enhancement schemes for both more capable and less capable achievers. Counselling teachers work closely with our school social workers and the educational psychologist to provide students and parents with appropriate support and assistance to overcome their learning and social difficulties through in-house programmes and workshops. With the establishment of the system of Chief Form Master, Form Academic Master, Form Discipline Master and Co-class Teachers, students can experience their enjoyable and fruitful secondary school life in C.Y. Ma. Our school was honoured with ‘Excellent Caring School Award’ in the past few years.

Moreover, we recruit several teaching assistants to assist students’ learning individually and/or in small groups.
Through the curriculum design, tiered assignments, adjustments of homework and assessments, the school helps students with special educational needs enhance their learning effectiveness.

The parent volunteers contribute greatly to home-school cooperation and the school was honoured with ‘The Most Caring School to Home-school Cooperation’ organised by Hong Kong Christian Service in 2014.
(2) School Ethos : Our school creates a caring, positive and welcoming learning atmosphere and we aim to nurture students’ virtues and righteousness through a caring but firm approach.
