1. Encourage students to be self-directed and disciplined learners, and develop their high-order thinking skills.
2. Raise teaching and learning effectiveness by promoting professional development among teachers, and enhancing training and support for middle managers.
3. Help students to have a positive outlook to improve their ability to cope with adversity, develop proper moral values and lead better lives by strengthening life education.
(2) School Management Organisation : The school set up the IMC in 2006 with the aim of enhancing school-based management. The Principal, Vice-Principals, Administrative Committee Members, Functional Groups and various Departments are jointly responsible for the day-to-day running of the school and the implementation of school policies.
(3) Incorporated Management Committee / School Management Committee / Management Committee : The school set up the Incorporated Management Committee (IMC) in 2006 with the aim of enhancing school-based management. School managers include Mr. LUI Lai Cheung, Frederick, JP, representatives of Tung Wah Group of Hospitals, teachers, parents, alumni and the Independent Manager.
(4) School Green Policy : Our school has won the "My Green Space” Green Building Competition for Schools for four consecutive years. The competition is organized by the Hong Kong Green Building Council Limited (HKGBC).
Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : - Our school has created an environment in which English is widely used in learning, which eases the transition between the junior form and senior form curricula.

- The native English teacher (NET) conducts enrichment classes in the junior forms to help students improve their speaking and listening skills. A wide variety of lunchtime English-learning activities are organized by the NET to arouse students’ interest in learning English.

- To promote self-directed learning, the school has designed a school-based online English platform where students have access to the English vocabulary items they have acquired in various subjects and their correct pronunciation. The school has also created an atmosphere conducive to learning English. For example, English is used in morning assemblies, and English videos or TV programs are shown on TVs on the school campus during lunch time. Moreover, a time slot in the morning is allotted to reading English materials. Furthermore, the “Job-Hunting Experience” helps students acquire essential job skills like interviewing and resume writing.

- Our teachers have been presented with the Chief Executive’s Award for Teaching Excellence in recognition of outstanding performance in English language teaching and Language across the Curriculum (LaC). Our school has adopted a “whole-school approach” to implementing LaC. Students understand the importance of learning English across different subjects through the cross-curricular writing and LaC class drama presentation. A school-based LaC vocabulary logbook has been designed to help students acquire vocabulary and phrases from various subjects in a more systematic way.

- There are split classes for Chinese, English and Mathematics in order to enhance teaching and learning effectiveness. Students are grouped according to their abilities.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : The school focuses on the learning of Chinese, English and Mathematics among junior form students since language ability is the foundation of learning. The school offers varied curricula which help broaden students’ horizons. On top of that, junior form students are required to take part in various extracurricular activities and cross-curricular projects (humanities, science and STEM projects) so that their generic skills, creativity and problem-solving skills can be developed.

There are both Chinese and English extensive reading programmes. The Parent-Teacher Association has launched the Reading Award Scheme in conjunction with the library to promote reading. The school library has worked with other departments to encourage students to read more often and hone their reading skills.

To raise teaching effectiveness, our teachers are encouraged to conduct lesson observation with colleagues and take professional development courses. Our teachers are accustomed to using e-learning regularly in classes to make lessons more interactive and engaging. Through various e-learning platforms, students have higher motivation to do pre-lesson preparation, and this has helped them to develop the habit of self-directed learning.
(3) School-based Curriculum : 1. Electives: 2X and 3X. Information and Communication Technology, Chinese History, Geography, History, “Business, Accounting and Financial Studies”, Tourism and Hospitality Studies, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Economics, Physical Education.
2. Curriculum highlights: Curriculum highlights: Cross-curricular projects for humanities and science subjects for F.1-F.3 students.
(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks : The main concepts of the four key tasks have been successfully integrated into the curricula of all subjects and various school activities. For example, project learning activities are organized on special learning days.
A moral education program specifically designed for Tung Wah schools has been implemented in our school. Information technology is widely used in teaching and learning, and there are regular programs to promote reading with a view to enhancing learning effectiveness.
(5) Life Planning Education : The school has implemented life planning education to help students understand themselves better, set life goals, develop feasible plans for implementation. e.g. "My Way" Life Planning Programme, “Life Buddies” Mentoring Scheme (Partner Company: Jardines)
Student Support

Apart from Guidance Team and the school social worker rendering support to parents & students, the educational psychologist hired by the school sponsoring body is an important resource for parents, students and teachers. The educational psychologist assesses students’ needs and provides professional help and service.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : In order to promote integrated education, build a culture of inclusiveness and provide comprehensive support to students with special learning needs, the Student Support Team was set up and its members consists the Vice Principal, the Educational Psychologist (Tung Wah Group of Hospitals), two School Social Workers, a Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO), a Special Educational Needs Support Teacher (SENST) and guidance teachers. Regular meetings are held to develop appropriate plans for supporting SEN students and discuss students' learning and behavioral performance. Special Educational Needs Support Teacher (SENST) has been provided on account of "Learning Support Grant" to support SEN students by organizing various types of activities so as to boost their potential. Speech therapists have been arranged to meet the special learning needs of students. Concerning students with considerable special learning needs, our teachers have worked closely with educational psychologists and clinical psychologists, who provide them with professional help such as assessments, referrals and individual plans to support their studies. To promote home-school co-operation, we have close communication with parents so that parents are fully aware of their children's performance at 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; and organising cultural integration activities.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for Learning and Assessment : There are 2 term tests and 2 examinations in each academic year and tests will be arranged by individual subject teachers when needed.

The school helps students to grow by developing desirable qualities in their characters, and creating a caring culture in the school so that their self-confidence and self-esteem can grow. Different administrative teams like the Discipline Team, Guidance Team, Moral and Civic Education Team, Careers Team, Student Support Team, Extra-Curricular Activities Team and Life Education Team often come together to organise activities in collaboration for the entire school, such as the F.1 Orientation Programme, Big Brothers and Sisters Scheme, Whole-School Volunteers Programme, Leadership Training Programme, etc. The school has taken great pains to provide financial assistance to needy students so that they can join more extra-curricular activities and gain diverse learning experiences, with a view to boosting their self-confidence and self-esteem. The school has taken sustainable, preventive and remedial measures in counselling students. The school has also established a rapport with parents since we strongly believe in parent-teacher collaboration.
Future Development

(2) Teacher Professional Training and Development : The school is committed to promoting the personal growth and professional development of teachers. A “mentorship scheme” has been established so that a caring atmosphere is created among the teaching staff. New teachers are given much-needed support in their job, which definitely benefits the sustainable development of the whole school. Teachers regularly open their classrooms for peer lesson observation, which is then followed by reflections and sharing among the subject panel members. Teachers are encouraged to make good use of their valuable experience in their teaching practice in implementing action research on learning and teaching, with a view to achieving sustainable professional development and creating a “learning community” among our teaching staff.

In order to keep pace with the latest development in different areas of study, all teachers regularly attend seminars and courses held by the EDB, EdUHK and other universities or organizations, such as those related to e-learning and STEM education. All teachers teaching subjects with English as the medium of instruction have received relevant professional training and they continue to attend training courses on a regular basis to obtain the most recent information in the relevant field. Our school has developed a set of award-winning school-based LaC teaching and learning materials. Our teachers have been presented with the Chief Executive’s Award for Teaching Excellence in recognition of outstanding performance in English language teaching and Language across the Curriculum (LaC).
Life-wide Learning (including Five Essential Learning Experiences to be provided through Key Learning Areas, Extra-curricular Activities, Co-curricular Activities, etc.) : A wide variety of extracurricular activities have been organized by class committees, clubs, the four houses and the Student Association. There are some forty clubs which fall into 5 categories: social service, moral and civic education, job-related experience, arts and aesthetic development, and sports development. The Student Association is responsible for organizing most school activities, which is a good opportunity for students to develop their leadership skills.
Others : The Tung Wah Group of Hospitals (TWGHs) offers various scholarships to students in recognition of their outstanding performance in different aspects. Scholarships will be awarded to students based on such criteria as students’ academic results, extracurricular activities, moral character and financial needs. Our school has also helped students to apply for scholarships offered by external organisations with a view to providing students with the financial assistance they need to reach their full potential.
