Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : Since 2009 - 2010, we have fine-tuned our language policy.English is adopted as the Medium of Instruction for Maths, Integrated Science and Computer & Information Technology in some of our junior secondary classes. This policy will be evaluated regularly and gradually implemented at all levels of our Junior Secondary. This depends on the actual abilities of our students. Besides, Putonghua is currently adopted as the Medium of Instruction for Chinese Language in some Secondary 1 - 3 classes. In the near future, this policy is to be implemented to all Junior Secondary classes.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : With a view to developing our School into a reading school, we make reading our school routines & regular events. e.g. S.1-S.2 Reading Festival and Daily Newspaper Reading Session. Students are exposed to global issues by reading newspapers. Once students have formed their reading habits, the school's reading culture is sustained.
Through the application of Co-operative Learning in everyday lessons, the pedagogy of Teaching and Learning will be advanced and effectively facilitated.
On top of the above-mentioned, we place emphasis on moral values, academic performance and whole-person development. The S.1-S.2 OLE course is one example for students to discover and cultivate their talents.
(3) School-based Curriculum : 1. Electives: 2X. Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Chinese History, History, Geography, Economics, Information and Communications Technology, Mathematics Extended Parts (Module 2), Applied Learning and Tourism & Hospitality Studies.
2. Curriculum highlights: To help students effectively achieve their learning goals, our school’s curricula designs are chiefly student-centered and school-based. We offer subjects like Life & Society and STEAM. We stress the use of original texts and the teaching of classical Chinese in the Chinese Language subject. We focus on students’ subject knowledge acquisition, keeping in mind to cater for their learning diversities.

Gifted education:
We design diversified courses for the more able students, such as IMO classes, classes on camera drones, public speaking training for the gifted, mind training classes, etc. We also enroll students in courses for the gifted offered by some tertiary education institutes, to help students reach their full potential by building on their strengths.
(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks : A Reading School
We adopt the use of original texts in our text-based teaching scheme for the Chinese subject. Alongside our school-tailored teaching materials, we read with students some classical Chinese literature such as Three Kingdoms, The Scholars, Strange Tales of a Lonely Studio, and Records of the Grand Historian within the lessons. We sit down with students to set their learning goals and carefully watch their learning progress. We help students build their interest in reading and learn how to read strategically, fostering them into mature language self- learners with good attitude and habits.
(5) Life Planning Education : 1. Through one-on-one counseling, group counselling, some life exploration activities and aptitude test, we consolidate our work in counselling students, helping students set their clear life goals and fulfil their dreams to study in universities.
2. Our school follows through our 6-year life planning program. Starting from teaching students the basic concept of life planning, to guiding them on subject selection, we help our students realize their every possible life path throughout and after secondary school by making wise decisions.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : We offer a range of enhancement programmes, to cite a few, the Subject Enhancement Course and SEN homework support, to offer assistance to students with diverse learning needs.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : We provide practical SEN support by effecting curricula and assessment adaptation, IEP, developmental counselling and social skills training workshops.
(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 : We offer appropriate learning and assessment adaptation for students with SEN. There are special exam rooms for some SEN students and some of them have exam time extension as part of their assessment adaptation.
(5) Fee Remission : Our school offers full school fee remission, 3/4, 1/2 or 1/4 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 2 week(s) of commencement of the new school year. Application results will be announced within 2 month(s) after submission of applications. After parents have submitted application forms, we will assess the financial situation of students according to the assessment criteria set by the Student Financial Assistant Agency. Fee remission will be granted according to a priority list based on the assessment outcomes.
