In the course of curriculum development, two school-based curricula - Elementary Liberal Studies and Integrated Science are offered in the junior forms.
|(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks||:||Our Reading Scheme, requiring every student to accomplish a number of external readers each year. With the help of various activities, good book recommendation, famous author talk, etc., our students have obvious improvement in their reading performance. With the installation of computers and LCD projectors in every classroom, teachers are able to conduct interactive learning more efficiently.

We work together to create a nice learning environment for the students and an ethos of being loving and serving. PTA is also an important platform for parents to share the experience in their course of upbringing their children.
Through the activities of "Voluntary Services with Parents", Seminars, Workshops and Health Talks, the school and the parents share their knowledge about personal growth of the youths, methods to promote mutual understanding between parents and the kids, how to deal with academic pressure and how to be healthy.
The annual event of Parent-Teachers Relay on the Sport Day not only brings parents and teachers closer to each other, but also provides a chance for the parents to feel personally the team spirits and the sense of devotion of the students.
Activities organized by PTA such as "Lantern Festival Night", "Used Books Trade Fair" and Students Sponsorships are highly regarded as successful events that exemplify the spirit of mutual support and cooperation of PTA.
To enhance the English listening and speaking skills of our students, the Management Board subsidies the school to employ two additional native English teachers. Their presence helps create a better English learning environment. Many interesting English learning activities are organized regularly in school.
|(2) School Ethos||:||Self-respect, Self-Discipline and Self-Confidence are the key values that our school nurtures our students. We emphasize the importance of ethics, and be loving, caring and serving, with the ability to face challenges and difficulties.
We have talks in the morning assembly to impart the values of paying respect, upholding integrity and having a positive mentality. We discuss with students how to deal with adversity and pressure. We organize fun fairs to help students learn positive living mentality with experiences shared by student leaders. Many school activities are organized not only to promote the idea of Whole Person Development and Life-wide Learning but also help students develop ability to cope with enticement. Students are encouraged to participate in extra curricular activities to develop self-respect, self-development and self-learning. We want students to learn by experience through participation and support from fellow students. “Adventure Ship”, “War Game”, “Adventure Training” and “Public Services" are such programs aiming to develop their courage, self-confidence, communication skills, and the willingness to serve others. Study tours are organized periodically, which includes visit to our sister school "Shanghai Nanyang Model Secondary School". These kinds of trips not only broaden students' horizons, but also change their learning attitude after the visits.
|(1) School Development Plan||:||Our school spares no effort to help students strive for proficiency both in English and Chinese. The Campus TV creates an excellent bilingual environment in school. Students have ample opportunities to learn and practise English/Putonghua in daily assembly by speaking to the public about particular subjects or their personal feelings. Our students are active in inter-school English/Chinese oral practices and participate in English Day Camps along with Elite Language Classes in long vacations. We organize overseas study tours regularly for students and special English enhancement courses for junior forms. Students are also encouraged to join in-house or inter-school public speaking competitions that may be in English or in Putonghua. All these are concerted efforts aiming at improving the language competence of our students.
We are currently in a knowledge based society. Our school strives hard to nurture innovation, science and technology education. We endeavour to achieve continuous improvement on teaching efficacy by:
1. A diverse teaching approach: Use mini-drama to encourage participation and group discussion. Ask students to use tablets (BYOD) to search for information to justify their opinions. Encourage students to organize exhibitions to demonstrate the knowledge they attained.
2. Active learning: Through participation in CLAP Project on life planning, invitation of elites from different sectors to share their experience with our students and visits to prominent companies and institutions, we help our students think about their future, whether they want to pursue higher academic qualifications or to enter the job market. Learning-skill classes are also provided to enhance learning efficiency.
3. Moral education: An encouraging and gratifying atmosphere in school will be critical to students’ character building. Students learn their moral lessons through discussions of social issues and moral cases as well as participation in day camps and other activities about making friends and anti-gambling. Our students shall learn to be an upright person with good manners, self-discipline, integrity and sense of justice, being caring, loving and helpful to others.

To stretch students' potential, most activities of the clubs/societies are run by students. OLE Days are held for F.1-F.6 students which allow students to learn through a wide range of activities. These activities together with those organized under other learning experiences help foster and reinforce students' whole person development. Students are strongly encouraged by the school to participate in external competitions of different kinds. Debate Teams, Rugby Teams, Judo Teams and Robot Club, participate actively in the inter-school matches and get amazing results in the inter-school competitions.|
