Recently, we have been promoting cross curriculum language learning by encouraging students to read to learn and permeating language learning through different subjects. Moreover, Putonghua is used to teach Chinese Language in one of the S1 classes. Students are grouped and taught according to their English ability in S1 and S2 English classes.

To ensure students' learning progress is based on their own ability, grouping will be formed according to their abilities on English Language in junior secondary teaching. Project learning is carried out to enhance their learning efficiency. A new junior secondary subject, promoting STEAM education is formed which integrates the knowledge of basic technology, design and graphics. The introduction of project learning across different subjects helps students to improve learning efficacy. We develop students' critical thinking capacity by implementing sharing sections in morning assembly and class teachers’ period. Both Chinese, English and Mathematics extensive reading schemes group the students' knowledge together on both the lesson and leisure time.
