(2) School Management Organisation : Our school implements school-based management. The Administrative meetings, Staff meetings and Parent-Teacher Association meetings are held regularly to provide sufficient communication channels for stakeholders. As a result, all teachers are involved in the planning and implementation of school policies. The School Board also sponsors overseas study tours and offers exchange scholarships for outstanding students.

The school joins hands with staff and students to use resources efficiently and avoid waste, such as economy in the use of paper and electricity. Therefore, this improves the environment and secures a sustainable development for our future generations. The school is committed to greening and enhancing the learning environment. This includes showcasing students' art and craft works and pot-planting with the aim to beautifying the campus.
Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : Our aim is for our students to be biliterate and trilingual. In the junior form, they are divided into EMI and CMI classes according to our students' learning ability and English proficiency. For the students adopting Chinese as the MOI, we increase students' exposure to English by conducting extended learning activities in most subjects. We foster a whole school language rich environment in which students are learning English and Putonghua effectively. Extra English classes and bridging programs after school are provided to help students adapt to EMI. Supplementary Chinese classes after school are provided for students who need to raise their Chinese language proficiency. To strengthen the English team, we have employed three NET teachers (including teacher assistants). We also raise students' interest in reading by launching a school-based reading scheme and the publication of students' writings. In order to promote students' interest in learning English and Chinese, they are encouraged to participate in the School Speech Festival. In senior forms, we implement "Vocational English Programme" to develop their workplace English proficiency. We also hold overseas English Immersion Camp so that students get the opportunity to improve English while participating in many fun activities and trips.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : The school enjoys a nice campus environment. We have adopted a learner-centered teaching approach. In order to cater for learner diversity, the school has restructured the curriculum in English, Chinese and Mathematics. There are split classes in English and Chinese. We have held different projects with EDB to improve the teaching and learning quality of the school. Our teachers adopt the teaching strategies of "tiered instruction", preparing different kinds of activities for simulation on mindsets and providing rapid feedback with speedy adjustments and corrections. The school provides overseas and mainland study tours to enrich their learning experiences. A broad and balanced curriculum is also designed to promote all-round development of the students. Collaborative lesson preparation, peer lesson observation and cross-subject collaboration measures are adopted to keep pace with curriculum reform.
(3) School-based Curriculum : 1. Electives: 2X. Students can choose two elective subjects according to the abilities and interests.
2. Curriculum highlights: Teachers crafted a school-based curriculum to suit the needs and abilities of students. Observing the student-centered principle, we are dedicated to enhancing students' knowledge, strengths as well as developing a correct philosophy of life. For instance, in English, we have cooperated with EDB School-based Support Service to develop the curriculum, which aims at enhancing learning and teaching effectiveness. For senior form students, a wide variety of subjects are available for selection to cater for the diverse interests and the needs of their further studies and career development.
(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks : The four key tasks are properly addressed through the joint effort of the subject departments. "Off-campus Learning Day" is one of our measures used to cultivate students' learning skills. To promote reading, various reading schemes which use a whole-school approach are strategically adopted with the support of all subject departments. Through subscribing online English courses and playing them during morning assembly as well as lunchtime, students’ listening and speaking proficiency in English can be enhanced. On top of that, "Fun Reading Assembly" and Reading Lessons have been set for further nurturing students' reading habits. In addition, different prizes are set up by the School Library to promote a reading atmosphere. Information technology is adopted for interactive learning. Students can access learning materials on the school intranet to conduct self-learning. Besides, E-learning is used students use iPad to carry out group discussion for instant feedback and sharing in class. In moral and civic education, the Civic Education and Social Services Group provide various volunteer activities for students. To foster students' positive values and attitudes, elements of life education are effectively delivered through Religious Studies, Life Education Programme, regular school assemblies and all subjects.
(5) Life Planning Education : We have employed teacher and a teacher assistant to implement systematic life planning education that incorporates essential elements to learning activities. Activities including leadership training, overseas trips and company visits are organized for students which can provide different experiences to facilitate their careers planning. Every effort is made to ensure that students are given relevant useful and practical advice so as to maximize their choices while minimizing their worries and struggles.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : We invite experts to help teachers recognize the development of students and develop learner-centered teaching strategies to cater for learners' diversity. Teachers in the Discipline and Guidance Team work collaboratively with social workers and psychologists to give preventive and remedial support to students. Several teachers have received training on inclusive education. There are also English literacy and citizenship courses for newly arrived immigrants.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : School has all long been promoting IE in accordance with basic principles, namely early identification, early intervention, whole School Approach and home-school cooperation. The Special Education Needs Coordination Team deploys resources flexibly so as to support quality teaching in regular classroom, "add on" intervention and intensive individualised support. We employ educational psychologist in early identification of students with special needs education, after-school remedial programes and a student affairs assistant to help students with special needs.
(3) Education Support for Non-Chinese Speaking(NCS) Students : Our school provides additional support for NCS students to facilitate their learning of Chinese: organising cultural integration activities. Most non-Chinese speaking students are weak in Chinese. Improving their Chinese standard can increase their competitiveness and sense of belonging. School employs a teacher assistant to provide after-school individualised support Chinese remedial programmes. To cater for learning diversity, students are streamed into groups according to their Chinese level.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for Learning and Assessment : Each academic year there are two examinations and uniform tests. Most subjects adopt a good variety of methods for continuous assessment, including project-based learning, class presentations, portfolios, self-assessment and peer assessment, which are effective in developing students' generic skills.
(5) Fee Remission : Our school offers full school fee remission or 1/2 school fee remission. Needy students, including those from families receiving the Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA) and students receiving financial assistance provided by the Student Financial Assistance Agency (SFAA) could apply for fee remission.
- Newly admitted students could apply for the school fee remission before 1 week(s) of commencement of the new school year. Application results will be announced within 3 month(s) after submission of applications. Scholarships are offered to students with financial difficulties or outstanding performance.

Home-school Co-operation and School Ethos
(1) Home-School Co-operation : Since founded in 1998, the Parent-Teacher Association enhances cooperation between the school and parents. Moreover, the Parent Resources Centre provides useful resources to parents. The school also offers Parent Talks and various recreational activities. Parents' groups are run biweekly.
(2) School Ethos : We adopt a holistic guidance approach in the pastoral care of students. With a dual form-teacher system in junior section and the “Teacher-student Dialogue” scheme, class teachers can pay attention to and take care of students’ personal growth in a more friendly and individual manner. Teachers make regular phone calls and meet parents to strengthen links with the family. Different career talks for students and parents are held during the school year catering for their needs. Together we create a loving and caring culture and a harmonious campus, which is recognized by the society and manifested by receiving Caring School Award for years.
Future Development
(1) School Development Plan : 1. To promote e-learning and more extensive use of online platforms to promote self-directed learning.

2. To inspire students’ curiosity and to enhance student motivation, different departments and functional groups will collaborate to implement “Breakthrough Lessons” in the junior curriculum, which will provide interactive co-curricular learning activities and experiences to help realise students’ potential and foster their all-round development.

3. To maximise students’ use of English in class and around the campus, three NET teachers are employed to co-teach with local English teachers and to conduct speaking classes, along with other, language related activities for all classes, as well as interactive Reading lessons for all junior form students. An English-rich environment is created through sharing on assembly, the English Ambassador Programme, English Corner activities and musical productions, where students can use English in authentic contexts. Local and overseas English immersion programs are also organized during the long school holidays.

4. To develop a coherent school-based English Language curriculum through collaboration with the Language Learning Support Section, which provides on-site visits to support senior form English teachers to explore effective learning strategies and use assessment to improve students’ reading and speaking skills through co-planning meetings, lesson observations and professional development activities.
(2) Teacher Professional Training and Development : Among the 40 full-time teachers, 87% have completed teachers' training, and 48% hold a master degree. Our team, who are eager to learn and try out student-centered methodology, have enabled our school to become a learning organization. In recent staff-development days, experts were invited to share team building strategies and lesson analysis skills to improve teaching methodology. In addition, teacher visits to other schools have been undertaken to nurture inter-school cooperation. A series of effective measures such as peer-observation, collaborative lesson preparation and teacher assessments are implemented to improve teaching effectiveness.
Life-wide Learning (including Five Essential Learning Experiences to be provided through Key Learning Areas, Extra-curricular Activities, Co-curricular Activities, etc.) : The school has set up over 40 clubs and interest groups. These activities encompass five major areas: academic, social services, interests, fine arts and sport. Apart from these activities, multiple-intelligence enhancement courses are held to further enrich students' school life.
