Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : We strive for our students to be tri-lingual and bi-literate in Chinese, English and Putonghua with a language-rich environment and enormous learning opportunities. In addition to a full time Native English Teacher (NET) who helps promote English activities and competitions, we hire professional organisations to run English courses at school. A wide range of English activities and programmes including English debate workshops, school-based e-learning programmes and the English Ambassador Scheme are organised. We have a fully-equipped English room with resources for students to enhance their interest and capacity in learning and using English. We have received extra funding from the EDB Quality Education Fund for developing a number of school-based Chinese projects and English projects. We have also worked collaboratively with universities to develop the school-based Integrated Science and the school-based Mathematics curricula. In junior forms, we mainly adopt Chinese as the medium of instruction as we believe that students can maximise their learning of subjects by using their mother tongue. We have Mathematics and Science groups using English as MOI, and Chinese groups using Putonghua as MOI. Putonghua lessons and activities are also conducted. Extended Learning Activities (ELA’s) are integrated into the other subjects. In senior forms, we provide students with choices to study particular subjects either in Chinese or English to suit their interests, needs and abilities.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : We believe that every student possesses potentials and we are committed to assist students to develop the ability to self-learn and achieve individual learning goals, in turn, believe in themselves and realise their talents in full. To cater for students’ individual needs and abilities, our teachers put effort into tailoring the most suitable curriculum and adopting effective strategies to, on one hand, strengthen their foundation, and on the other hand, further develop their strengths. We organise small-group classes, streaming classes, after-school learning prorgammes, summer classes and gifted education courses for our students with the collaboration of external professional organisations. It is always our goal to assist our students to maximize their learning through professional development, collegial community and collaboration with parents. Teachers use note-taking skills and ICAS to enhance students learning strategies.
(3) School-based Curriculum : 1. Electives: 2X and 3X. Students may take Applied Learning courses of external organizations, Mathematics Extended Modules. Non-Chinese speaking students may take GCSE/IGCSE Chinese on top of the HKDSE.
2. Curriculum highlights: A diverse and balanced curriculum is offered. Independent subjects are kept in the junior level to ensure students can build up a strong knowledge foundation. As a Christian school, we provide a holistic education for students and put much emphasis on life and value education. Religious studies, visual arts, music and culture, physical education are compulsory at all levels, supplemented with many extra-curricular activities.
(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks : E-learning and STEM education are fully implemented. With the Wifi 900 and enhancement of IT infrastructure, a 20GB bandwidth network is achieved and an interactive e-learning room is set up. BYOD is on the year plan. Science, Computer Studies and Mathematics collaborate to integrate the elements of programming, robots, hydroponics, electrical science, chemistry and mathematics in the curriculum, so as to consolidate students’ science knowledge, enhance their creativity and problem solving skills and develop their potential in science. More able students will join the science projects of the external organizations and the Universities. Students take ICAS and with the results the teachers identify students’ strengths in science and needs. To facilitate life-long learning as promoted by the education reform, we help students develop learning skills and generic skills. The Life & Society curriculum integrates personal growth, problem-solving skills, communication skills, collaborative skills and inquiry project-based learning skills, and helps students grasp lateral and critical thinking, as well as build up their sense of values and social concern. The Liberal Studies Panel develops school-based learning materials to enhance students' understanding and inquisitive skills.
(5) Life Planning Education : TWe assist students in fostering their self-exploration, life planning abilities as well as gaining more information about multiple study pathways and the career world. Different careers interventions like CLP workshops, workplace visits and work experience programmes are organized within the school-based life planning curriculum for S1 to S6 students in accordance with their interests, needs and abilities. The CLP Room is set up as a resource centre and a comfy space to provide individual or group career counselling for students, in turn, understand their own aspirations and abilities for making informed choices on their career development and further studies.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : Providing comprehensive support for students’ diverse needs in learning and all round development; implementing core and enrichment curriculum in junior levels to cater diverse abilities. Small classes / groups, after school tutorials, activities and summer courses are also conducted to consolidate learning outcomes and enhance effectiveness. In senior levels, we adopt a diverse and flexible curriculum structure for students to choose the preferred subject combinations and medium of instruction.

With extra teachers, external organizations and close collaboration with parents, the Team provides comprehensive support for our students in respect of their needs on learning, social skills and growth. Teachers attend relevant professional courses regularly. Measures like extra time allowance and using screen readers are available to facilitate students with special needs. To elevate the learning effectiveness, the student ambassadors assist the SEN students in the “E-learning peer support programme. The workshops on inclusive education in the junior forms help the students to know more about different types of learning needs. Messages of inclusion and acceptance are integrated into the Religious Studies curriculum so to enhance the harmony in school.
