Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : Our school aims for a high level of proficiency, spoken and written, in both Chinese and English. English is the main medium of instruction (except in Chinese Language, Chinese Literature, Chinese History and Putonghua lessons). Students are tri-lingual and bi-literate. This tradition will continue in the school.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : (1)To adopt student-centred pedagogy to promote self-directed learning and enhance learning ownership; (2) To enhance problem-based / inquiry based learning, discovery approach to stimulate students’ intellectual ability; (3) To deepen experiential learning to enhance authentic learning experience locally and globally, e.g. participation in World Scholar’s Cup programme; (4) To enhance students’ peer and self-assessments.
(3) School-based Curriculum : 1. Electives: 3X. Students are allowed to select three electives among 14 subjects offered in senior secondary forms.
2. Curriculum highlights:
(1) School-based Chinese and English Language curricula in junior forms tailored for students’ interests and needs.
(2) Cultural Arts is a one-year school based programme for Form Four students. It aims to enrich students’ understanding of different interfaces between culture and arts as well as stimulate their interest in further exploration of arts, and encourage their appreciation of their cultural heritage.
(3) The Form Two Problem-Based Learning curriculum serves to promote STEAM education, and equip students with creativity, problem solving, critical thinking, communication and collaboration skills so that they can meet the changes and challenges in the future.
(4) School-based programmes are planned and implemented across different subjects.
(5) The Other Learning Experiences (OLE) scheme encompasses a significantly larger variety of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. This provides students with diverse choices in the range of clubs, teams, activities, events, competitions and programmes both local and overseas which they can participate in.
(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks : (1) Developing life-long and self-directed learners: Student-centred pedagogy is adopted to promote self-directed learning and enhance learning ownership e.g. the use of problem-based and inquiry-based learning, discovery approach and STEAM education across different Key Learning Areas to stimulate students’ intellectual ability. (2) Project Learning: Project learning in different form levels provides alternative learning experiences to engage students in the learning process and opportunities for students to develop various generic skills. The fundamental learning experiences and skills are enriched and consolidated through various subject-based and inter-disciplinary projects. A cross-curricular STEAM project was carried out in Form Two to extend students’
exposure to innovative education trends. All F.2 students were involved in a group-based half-year project with the aim to improve STEAM literacy and skills, as well as to nurture creativity. (3) Information technology for interactive learning: To further foster a self-directed learning culture among students, the school provides a conducive environment to unleash students’ potentials. Massive e-Learning resources are made available. These include online platforms to facilitate collaborative learning and self-directed learning, flipped classrooms, provision of instant feedback during lessons and online assessment system.
(4) Reading to Learn: A whole school approach is implemented to promote learning to read and reading to learn. Inspirational and interactive activities, including regular book recommendations, talks by accomplished writers as well as book club meetings are organised. There are also seasonal board displays, book swaps, give-away corners, and a month-long Readathon involving all Form One students. Students are also encouraged to foster a habit of reading multi-modal texts from different sources. (5) Moral and Civic Education: Positive attitudes and values are inculcated through formal and informal education, as part of lessons, and through the multifarious out-of-classroom programmes and activities, including daily morning Assembly and Form Periods, community service projects, etc.
(5) Life Planning Education : The objective of the Careers Team is to help students understand their strengths and interests, set goals for themselves and make informed choices for further studies and future careers. The team arranges programmes on careers and life education conducted by Form Teachers as well as careers conferences for each form level, and organizes exhibitions, talks and visits on career opportunities and further education for students. The team also provides individual and group guidance on careers matters and further education. There is a small careers library providing information on further studies in local and overseas educational institutions for students’ reference.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : (1) To cater for learning diversity, the English, Chinese and Mathematics lessons in the junior forms are timetabled so that students with similar abilities can have lessons together to maximize their learning. (2) To facilitate a faster transition to secondary school life and a different mode of learning, the school organizes the year-long Form One Programme. Our Big Sister Scheme also helps new students to adapt to secondary school life through the care and support of the senior students. (3) The Guidance Team and the Careers Team run programmes throughout the year to meet the needs of students at different stages of development and to provide for different student characteristics. (4) Funding from the government also allows us to run tailor-made programmes for students with different needs, be they special learning difficulties or gifts that need stretching. Examples of our tailor-made programmes include relaxation therapy and dog training. These programmes aim to reduce the level of stress in students and encourage self-love, self-care, and a sense of responsibility. The additional service of a senior speech therapist also provides regular support training for students with speech and language impairment. (5) To develop the potential and nurture the uniqueness of our multi-talented students, departments and teams offer different pull-out programmes, such as enhancement classes, field studies and team training. Also, suitable students are nominated to participate in various accelerated courses and competitions organized by universities and professional organizations.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : With the provision of extra government funding and resources, our student support teams, including the Guidance Team and the SEN Team, work closely together with all teachers and our parents so that students’ individual needs can be catered for. Support measures include consultation, assessment and learning skills enhancement groups offered by our educational psychologist and speech therapist.
(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.; developing school-based Chinese Language curriculum and/or adapting learning and teaching materials; and organising cultural integration activities. purchasing Chinese readers and references to set up special reading corner in the library.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for Learning and Assessment : (1) Throughout the school year different modes of learning and assessment are employed to suit various purposes and processes of learning and to cater for learning diversity. (2) Students attend lessons in the core subjects in sets for greater learning effectiveness. (3) Students with special learning needs have specially adapted assessment and exam schedules in designated rooms to ensure equal opportunities for the realization of their learning potential.
Home-school Co-operation and School Ethos
(1) Home-School Co-operation : In addition to Parents' Day, a Parents' Evening is arranged for parents of each form. In those events, parents are provided with more focused support and information, and have the opportunity to express opinions and share their experience. Our Parent Teacher Association is one of the oldest PTAs in Hong Kong. They run regular seminars, workshops to enhance parenting skills. Coffee Mornings with the Principal is a much treasured opportunity for parents to enjoy informal chats with the Principal.

We emphasise the education of the ‘whole person’, which includes the development of body, mind and spirit. We seek to educate all students to become thinking and aspiring individuals. The school therefore strives to develop each student’s potential, encouraging each student to develop her talents, and her own individual ambition and set of ethical values.
