The annual Green School Campaign is a major school-wide initiative and a joint effort with the Student Union and the Prefect Board to promote green school practices of the 3 R’s: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : English is our medium of instruction. There are 25 teachers in the English Department: 3 being native speakers and the others having native-speaker or near native-speaker fluency. They are all highly qualified and committed to enhancing the English standard of the students.
On the other hand, the school spares no effort in strengthening students' Chinese proficiency. Putonghua is the medium of instruction in S.1-S.3 Chinese Language classes.
With a view to nurturing our students to be biliterate and trilingual, we have put in place a series of enrichment programmes (such as public speaking, debate, drama, writing) and reading schemes.

For S.2 students: Aesthetics and Creativity Education programme conducted by professionals.
E-learning: implemented from S.1 through S.6.
Teachers participate in professional training courses, forums and workshops to keep abreast of education reform and teaching trends.

Case conferences are held with teachers concerned to discuss strategies in supporting particular students. Teachers and parents may communicate with the school on the special needs of these students. The school will provide support for them by making special arrangements regarding classroom seating, examination setting as well as individual education plan, etc. The school may also refer students to outside professionals, such as psychiatrists, for further follow-up if necessary.
