School Characteristics School Characteristics
School Management
(1)School's Major Concerns : This year's school theme is:
Better Self ‧ Better Society.
Learn to think ‧ Seek the truth.
(2) School Management Organisation : A school-based management method has been adopted. A hierarchy of different committees helps to coordinate curriculum development, moral education, use of I.T. and life-wide learning activities. We also keep close contact with parents.
(3) Incorporated Management Committee / School Management Committee / Management Committee : The Incorporated School Management Committee, with representatives from the sponsoring body and the teaching staff, the Parent-Teacher Association and the Elite Association, are committed to provide students with quality education and Catholic values.
(4) School Green Policy : Our action-oriented approach aims at educating students to understand how precious the nature is. We sort waste materials for recycling. We have installed a solar power plant to further promote environmental protection. The School also encourages students to bring their personal utensils, promoting Green lunch and energy-saving measures with the Green Group.
Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : We use English as our medium of instruction except E&RE and Liberal Studies. (For details, please refer to the subjects offered/to be offered in the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 school years). However, in order to train moral behaviour and multi-perspectives thinking more effectively, we use students' mother language in E&RE and Liberal Studies lessons.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : To inculcate life-long learning, all subjects adopt a life-wide learning approach that incorporates activities like inter-school debates, field trips and public forums to let students step out of the classrooms and widen their horizons. We also organize learning strategy training and cooperative learning courses for students to strengthen their thinking and cooperation skills. To help students establish the habit of active-learning, we launch a three-year progressive thinking and study skills training programme for all junior form students. We aim at enhancing their learning effectiveness through offering several training workshops and feedback sessions about different study skills to them.
(3) School-based Curriculum : 1. Electives: Students may take 3 elective subjects, Mathematics Extended Part and Applied Learning Courses in S.4-S.6.
2. Curriculum highlights: S.1 to S.3: To enhance students' proficiency in both Languages, the school has incorporated "English Language Arts", elements of English Literature and "Chinese Culture and Chinese Literature" into junior form English Language and Chinese Language curriculum respectively.
Besides that, "School-Based Drama Education Programme" is also developed based on students' abilities with a view to enhancing their expression skills and creativity through systematic spiral learning. To help students establish a good foundation for senior-level Liberal Studies, teachers also help students raise their social awareness and enhance their expression skills through interactive activities such as news forum and newspaper cutting in S1-S3 Life and Society.
(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks : (1) Moral and Civic Education: The school has strategically immersed moral and civic education into the formal curriculum through various subjects such as Ethics and Religious Education, Life and Society, Liberal Studies, Chinese Language, Chinese History, and History. Different activities are also arranged to enhance students' moral standard and civic awareness.
(2) Reading to learn: Promoting reading to learn has been one of the major concerns in our school for many years. We aim to promote students' interest and habit in reading as well as their capability of learning from reading. A 20-minute morning reading period has been incorporated into the timetable for years and Promotion of Reading Scheme has also been launched to arouse students' reading interests starting from this school year.
(3) Project-based learning: Different research skills are trained through various group projects in Life and Society. The Issue Enquiry Studies in Liberal Studies also helps to cultivate students' initiative in learning; foster higher-order thinking, and strengthen their communication skills.
(4) eLearning and STEM Development: To enhance effective and efficient learning, other than whole school Wi-Fi coverage with sufficient supply of mobile devices, our school has launched different platforms such as Google Apps for Education and Office 365; adopted new teaching methods such as ‘flipped learning’ in all academic subjects. To better equip our students to meet the needs of the advanced technological society, we have regular STEM lessons in S.2, infiltrated STEM into the junior curriculum, and established an ECA group ‘Makers Team’ to provide more STEM-related activities and training to interest our students.
(5) Life Planning Education : Further studies and careers planning is a process. Holistic guidance programmes have been implemented in our school to help students develop a better understanding of themselves, their abilities, strengths and weaknesses. To facilitate students in life planning, goal setting and career formulating, diverse career-related activities and experiences are provided for them. Our guidance programmes aim to encourage students to make informed and responsible choices on their studies, occupations, career goals and other aspects of life.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : To cater for students' diverse learning abilities, the school has adopted small-class teaching according to the competency of students in Chinese, English, Mathematics, and Liberal Studies. Students are also encouraged to join the "After-School Support Service Programme" so as to consolidate what they have learnt during lessons. To further stretch students' abilities and to enrich their exposure in different learning experiences, the school has organized "School-Based Gifted Education Programme" in both Mathematics and Science at junior level. For those who attain outstanding performance in Mathematics, Sciences, Humanities and Leadership, they will be nominated by the school to join the training programmes provided by "The Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education".
To pave the way for further studies and future career, senior form students are also highly encouraged to enroll in summer courses offered by local and overseas universities.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : Our school promotes inclusive values and implements the Whole School Approach to Integrated Education to cater for learning diversity effectively. With the learning support grant and other resources, we provide appropriate and collective support to the students with special education needs, so as to help enhance their learning effectiveness.

Our school's SEN team consists of guidance mistress, teachers, teaching assistant, school social worker and education psychologist.

Based on students’ special education needs, our school provides appropriate support to students, such as after school learning support, social support and special exam arrangement. There is also implementation of “Individualized Education Plan” to give tailor-made learning program to students after discussing with relevant professionals and parents.

Parental participation and cooperation are crucial. Our school involves parents and students in the entire process of our support program. Through such participation, both parents' and students' views are heard and respected.
(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; appointing additional teacher(s)/teaching assistant(s) to support NCS students’ learning of Chinese; arranging intensive Chinese learning and teaching mode(s), e.g. pull-out learning if necessary, split-class/group learning, etc.; and organising cultural integration activities.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for Learning and Assessment : There is one test and one examination every term. Tests and continuous assessments account for 30%-40% whereas examinations account for 60% to 70% of the subject mark.
S.1-S.3 promotion criteria: Pass in grand average, Chinese Language, English Language and Mathematics.
Decisions on students' promotion / detention are collaboratively made by the Principal, vice principals, class teachers and subject teachers during the year-end promotion meetings.
Home-school Co-operation and School Ethos
(1) Home-School Co-operation : We maintain a warm and close relationship with parents as we understand that nothing can be achieved without their full cooperation. We have an orientation programme for the parents of S.1 students. We also have numerous occasions each year for class teachers to share their opinions with parents on students' performance individually. Our class teachers also have a practice of giving "Sunshine Call", which is calling the parents at least once a year. Besides that, we welcome parents to participate in school functions such as Teachers' Day and Sports Day. Many parents serve as voluntary helpers, such as performing daily duties in the PTA room. Our PTA, established more than twenty years ago, supplies a great variety of educational and recreational functions for parents and students. It is also a body that the school will consult in major issues.
(2) School Ethos : Our students are well-behaved. The teacher-student relationship is harmonious. Guidance monitresses organized by the Guidance Committee help S.1 students to adapt to their new school life. There are two class teachers for S.1-S.4 classes. Class teachers meet students and contact parents regularly to help with students' moral and academic development.
Future Development
(1) School Development Plan : To raise teaching quality and learning effectiveness and to provide an all-round education for our students have been the two interlocking objectives of our school's development in recent years. To achieve these goals for improving learning effectiveness, we push forward the thinking and study skills program, the super memory and the high flyers support program for our students. Besides that, we will launch a leadership campaign for our students that every one of them needs to take up at least a post at the school level (such as Prefects, Student Association chairperson) or class level (such as class monitress, subject leaders) so that they can be trained to become a future leader in society. Our school is also actively promoting Spiritual Education. We aim to nurture in our students tranquil and contemplative minds. In our religious lessons, we encourage students to get connected with their inner selves and to bring mindfulness into their lives in the hope of helping them develop a positive outlook on life.
(2) Teacher Professional Training and Development : Our teaching team believes that quality education begins with quality lessons. All subject panels have been actively involved in "School-Based Support Services" provided by the EDB. Besides that, all teachers are actively participating in collaborative lesson preparation and peer classroom observation to enhance teaching effectiveness.
Life-wide Learning (including Five Essential Learning Experiences to be provided through Key Learning Areas, Extra-curricular Activities, Co-curricular Activities, etc.) : There are more than 40 different extra-curricular activity groups in our school, including interest groups, personal growth groups, uniform groups, academic groups, sports teams and religious groups.
Others : To encourage students to learn beyond the classroom, and to familiarize themselves with their country and the world, students are encouraged to join in study tours to various parts of the world, such as trips to the mainland, Taiwan, Korea, Europe, Australia, United States etc.
With the support from PTA, "OLR caring fund" is set up to sponsor students' activities so as to provide each student with equal learning opportunities.
To encourage students to strive for excellence and form an active and hardworking learning habit, our school has provided scholarships to award students' efforts and achievements for years.
Direct public transportation to School : Our school can be reached by Bus route: 203C
Minibus routes: 2, 2A, 41A & 41M
Remarks : Our S.1 to S.4 school-based English curriculum aims to enhance students' self-confidence in speaking and reading English through the teaching of Drama and English Literature. Besides, we emphasize the training of Thinking and Study Skills in the junior levels. Our goal is to lead our students to develop the proactive attitude of self-directed learning and knowledge hunting. We also encourage our students to develop their interests and stretch their potentials by taking Applied Learning courses offered by recognized institutes.
