Lessons of major subjects are conducted in English in some S.1 classes while not more than 25% of the total lesson time of the remaining S.1 classes is allocated to English extended learning activities (ELA). We are devoted to creating an excellent language learning environment for students. Through multifarious co-curricular activities, we provide ample opportunities for students to reinforce their biliterate and trilingual ability in order to help them attain proficiency in both Chinese and English.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : Our school has clear objectives and policies in curriculum development. Observing the student-oriented principle, a unique school-based curriculum is designed. For instance, STEM is implemented in junior secondary levels, cross-curriculum learning activities are designed, aiming at widening the horizons of junior form students and enriching their problem solving skills. For senior form students, broad and flexible subject selection is made possible as our school offers a wide range of science, arts and commercial subjects. This subject selection strategy is adopted with an aim to cater for the diversified interests among students and the needs for their further studies and career development. Our students possess a pro-active learning attitude and a good reading habit. They are also attentive in class, conscientious in accomplishing assignments and able to confidently conduct discussions in English. Students learn collaboratively through projects and have keen interests in exploring new ideas. Our teachers are professionals with very sound subject knowledge and conscientious manner. We have clear teaching objectives, which are revealed in their tactical use of a rich variety of teaching resources and IT facilities in helping students consolidate the concepts they grasp. Besides, through our "Peer Lesson Observation" and "Project-based Learning", the high-order thinking and creativity of students have flourished. This programme has effectively fostered an inquiring mind and ability in developing generic skills among students. To promote students' daily reading habits, morning reading sessions are held twice weekly. Chinese and English Extensive Reading Schemes and various reading programmes have been launched by our reading promotion team.

(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks : Our school has a long history in developing the four key tasks through formal and informal curriculum. The promotion of reading is achieved through the morning reading sessions twice a week. Students are supervised by teachers and given the autonomy to select suitable reading materials (books and newspapers) for the morning reading sessions to encourage them to read widely. Students are encouraged to engage in e-learning activities after school by visiting the school intranet and other e-platforms. Project learning and peer assessment are introduced to enhance students’ ability in doing group research. It is hoped that students can make progress together in collaborative learning. Students are encouraged to contribute to society through active involvement in community service. A series of national education activities are launched to promote civic education with an aim to enhancing their national identity.

From S.1 to S.6, the Class Teachers and Co-class Teachers of each class provides timely advice on students' life planning and learning, enabling students to set realistic goals.

By doing so, they can plan for a better future.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : Our school cultivates a caring and collaborative culture, encourages peer rapport and caters for individual differences. The level of difficulty of each exam paper is tailor-made to cater for the diverse ability in learning of students. Our counselling and discipline teams, the school social worker and the educational psychologist also work collaboratively to achieve the above aim. With an understanding and caring attitude, a range of tailor-made supportive programmes are designed in accordance with the needs of students, helping them in self realization and easing their stress whenever possible emotional or behavioural problems arise. Our school is dedicated to promote value education, life planning, mentorship programme and leadership training to provide the best support for students and to unleash their potential.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : Our school is committed to creating a caring and inclusive culture by adopting the “Whole School Approach” in hope of providing a favorable learning environment for students with Special Educational Needs (SEN). Through the use of the Learning Support Grant provided by the Education Bureau, our school offers a wide range of tailor-made services for SEN students to help them integrate into school life. The Counselling Team and SEN Team takes the initiative to approach SEN students, cater for their needs and provide them with individual and group counselling services, such as enhancement courses for less able students to consolidate their academic performance. Volunteer training programmes and after-school activities are also designed to strengthen students’ learning ability, improve their communication skills, boost their self-confidence and encourage them to establish harmonious relationships with their peers. In addition, our school flexibly utilises the Grant to the full by employing additional staff, including a teaching assistant and a student counsellor, to provide meticulous care for each SEN student so as to ensure their learning attitude and social behavior are well conformed. The implementation of these measures is definitely to build up a caring and supportive learning environment for our SEN students.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for Learning and Assessment : Our school adopts both formative and summative assessments. Assessments include students’ in-class performance and assignments, regular uniform tests, half-yearly and yearly examinations of all subjects.
