Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : The School emphasizes English Language learning. For some junior form classes, English is adopted as the medium of instruction for Mathematics and Integrated Science (S.1, S.2); some modules in S.3 Integrated Science and Integrated Humanities are taught in English. At most 25% of the lesson time has been used to conduct Extended Learning Activities in English in all subjects except Chinese Language, Chinese History and Putonghua in junior secondary. Mathematics, Physics and Economics in the Senior Secondary have offered both English and Chinese classes in order to cater for the students' learning needs. The School has formally established the Language Across the Curriculum Committee to enrich the student’s English learning through different subjects and enhance the students’ confidence and abilities in using English. We have input extra resources to employ additional English teachers, teaching assistants and English extracurricular activities and enhancement classes instructors to provide various English proficiency classes after school and during holidays in order to cater for students’ diverse needs.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : We promote students' initiative in learning. Learning skills are formally taught in junior forms to help students build up good study habits, including having pre-lesson studies preparations, maximizing the use of e-Learning platforms, organizing personal notes and so on. The School constantly upgrades IT facilities and makes good use of them in learning and teaching. We also put emphasis on knowledge construction and interactive learning through using various types of information technology. Field studies and activities outside the classroom are frequently organized to promote active learning. We encourage students to participate in various inter-school competitions to gain valuable experiences and broaden their horizons. We also have English street interviews and English speaking days to enhance English learning environment. The main objective is to help students acquire life-learning skills.
(3) School-based Curriculum : 1. Electives: 2X. Every student may choose 2 elective subjects, plus the Mathematics Extended Part. There are 15 elective subjects offered. This creates up to a hundred combinations to fit students’ needs and interests.
2. Curriculum highlights: 1) Nurturing students’ interests in learning English and enhancing students’ English abilities: We have small-class teaching in S.1 to S.4 English lessons to create more opportunities for students to use English in class. We strive to create a fruitful and joyful English learning environment to motivate students through organising various activities, such as English Speaking Days, inter-class English competitions, snacks making workshops, English Cafes, movies and songs appreciation sessions, Reading Club, etc. We also provide special English language arts experience to S.4 students by recruiting experienced foreign tutors to conduct activities, including face painting, Bollywood dancing, comic design; 2) Promoting STEM education: We implement different learning activities and cross-curricular collaboration projects into our curriculum so as to strengthen our students’ knowledge, skills and confidence in observation, classification, application, analysis, problem solving, integration and evaluation. These are to enable students to build a strong interest in learning; 3) Small-class teaching: We recruit extra teachers to enable more small-class teaching in different subjects in order to offer better support to students. Apart from English lessons, we have small-class teaching in Chinese, Mathematics, Computer Literacy, Home Economics, and Design and Technology. We have different classes using Chinese or English as the medium of instruction in Mathematics, Integrated Science, Economics and Physics. There are different levels of enhancement classes to help students during weekends and holidays.
(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks : 1) The School emphasizes Reading. We have morning reading periods twice a week. Class libraries have been installed in all classes. There are lots of reading activities, including Chinese and English bookcrossing and Chinese book reports competitions to promote a good reading habit.; 2) Our teachers often make good use of the Interactive learning tools, including Google Classroom, Google Meet, Edpuzzle, Kahoot!, Explain Everything, eClass electronic learning platforms, and implement proper flipped classroom learning activities to enhance self-motivated learning. All these approaches enrich teacher-student and student-student interactions in class and enable teachers to provide instant feedback to students. Teachers can self-reflect their teaching effectiveness and students’ learning progress.; 3) The School integrates STEM elements into the junior secondary project learning across different subjects in order to develop students’ problem solving skills and investigative ability, preparing students for the school-based assessment in senior secondary.; 4) The School promotes 'Diligence, Integration, Respect and Commitment' education. Different activities have been arranged for different levels, including adventure-based training, social services experiences, activities on understanding global citizenship, discussions on current affairs and so on, in order to develop students’ positive values and proper attitudes and hence to foster students’ positive potentials.
(5) Life Planning Education : Life Planning Education and Career Guidance are systematically conducted through exhibitions, seminars, visits, experiential programs and small-group counselling. These activities aim at guiding students to explore their own interests, abilities, needs and aspirations, so as to help them make wise and responsible choices for their future study and career, and develop positive attitudes towards learning and working.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : Arousing interest in study and fostering self-directed learning are our major concerns. Great efforts are put on refining curriculum design, teaching pedagogy, assessment and professional development. We have split classes with smaller class size during Chinese, English and Mathematics lessons. Teachers fine-tune specific curriculum and tailor-make teaching materials according to students’ ability and needs. Different enhancement classes are conducted to provide extra assistance to students in need. We have also joined school-based development projects with the Education Bureau and other tertiary institutes.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : The Inclusive Education Committee is established to cater for the needs of students with special educational needs. We believes that students with such needs should have the same opportunities as others, having a normal school life to improve and equip themselves. Each of these students is assigned with a caring teacher who provides appropriate assistance to help them accommodate school life. Extra manpower is recruited to conduct peer counselling programmes, provide learning support and speech therapy and prepare for examination adjustments.
(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; and organising cultural integration activities.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for Learning and Assessment : Marks allocation ratio between formative and summative assessment: formative assessment 30%, summative assessment 70%. Marks allocation ratio between two school terms: first term 40%, second term 60%. For S.1 to S.5 students, there is one final exam at the end of each school term. One uniform test is also arranged in the middle of the second term. In order to help the School and students set proper achievable goals in public examination, Uniform tests for S.6 have been arranged in September and December to predict their results, so that the School can help students prepare for the coming graduation examination and the public examination.
Home-school Co-operation and School Ethos
(1) Home-School Co-operation : The Parent-Teacher Association organizes recreational activities and gatherings to enhance the communication between teachers and parents. It also co-organises parent education workshops and various summer classes and activities with the School.
(2) School Ethos : We teach our students to lead a simple lifestyle and respect teachers. We also promote a sense of care and concern for others. With the integration of discipline and counselling, we aim at helping students grow gradually. We conduct various educational programmes and encourage them to have the spirit of serving others, both in school and in the community. Our teacher-student relationship is harmonious. Students and teachers mutually respect each other. Also, we have good home-school collaboration and our alumni always come and contribute back to school.
We promotes 'Diligence, Integration, Respect and Commitment' education in this academic year and hence we have arranged the following arrangements to enhance the School ethos.
1) We have dual class teachers from S.1 to S.5 to enhance the pastoral care to students.
2) We have the “Stars of Praise Program” to promote positive behaviour.
3) We develop life education programs. By making use of the live examples and current affairs, we nurture students to understand respect, caring, positive attitude and value.

Our teachers make good use of all sorts of training courses, workshops and seminars to equip themselves with the latest development in education through staff meetings and internal subject meetings. The School encourages teachers to participate in secondment or work for the Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authorities in order to broaden their horizons and upgrade their teaching standards. In addition, the School has arranged teachers to have professional sharing with different education institutes.
Life-wide Learning (including Five Essential Learning Experiences to be provided through Key Learning Areas, Extra-curricular Activities, Co-curricular Activities, etc.) : All of the eight Key Learning Areas are included in our S.1 to S.6 curriculum. We provide students with well-balanced and diversified extra-curricular activities. All S.1 students participate in learning activities of their interests and choices, including art, music, drama and sports activities, as well as joining uniform groups, one to two days a week. Students are given the opportunities to develop their potential and involve in community services in the junior secondary while leadership training is heavily emphasised in the senior secondary. Our aim is to nurture students' whole-person development and equip them for their future studies and careers through these activities. Our students excel in various inter-school competitions including verse speaking, drama, dancing, environmental protection activities and sports competitions, especially in swimming, basketball, football, badminton and table-tennis.
Others : We provide whole-person education. We help students manage their time properly and provide support for their learning. We organise structured after-school activities for S.1 students. As a green school for many years, we continue to put emphasis on establishing a green environment. In recent years, we have won Hong Kong Awards for Environmental Excellence Gold Award. An energy-generating wind-turbine has been installed and roof-top farming is being practised. All these are introduced to promote environmental awareness among students and to provide them with the opportunity to take actions to protect the Earth.
