School Characteristics School Characteristics
School Management
(1)School's Major Concerns : 1. To extend the dimension of self-learning, and foster personalized learning.
2. To enhance values education, and enable students to grow and develop with appreciation and respect.
(2) School Management Organisation : Our School, established with one registration incorporating primary and secondary in 2003, is governed by one IMC and managed by one administrative system with one team of teaching staff teaching all levels. We offer 12 years of continuous primary and secondary education to our students in a true "Through-Train" mode of education.
(3) Incorporated Management Committee / School Management Committee / Management Committee : IMC is comprised of representatives from the School Sponsoring Body, the Principal, and representatives of teachers and parents.
(4) School Green Policy : Hydroponics in the nursery and the organic farmland of our Yu Garden can enable students to experience the joy of farming. In addition, pedal-driven fitness bicycle generators have also been installed to encourage students to make use of the bicycles to exercise regularly and keep fit; the electricity generated is stored for future use. There are also waste separation bins for recycling. Our civic ambassador team promotes the important message of environmental protection and a clean campus in a bid to cultivate the green school culture.
Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : We aim at training our students to be proficient in Cantonese, Putonghua and English by: 1. Creating a favourable learning environment for language acquisition as in the weekly English Day, weekly Putonghua Day, Language Games, Competitions, Peer Reading Programme, English Broadcast, Festival Celebrations and the English Ambassador Scheme. Students can improve their English skills through day-to-day learning activities in the “English Everywhere” environment. 2. Having Native Speaking English teachers teaching most of the English Speaking and Conversation classes.
3. Mathematics and Integrated Science lessons of some of the junior secondary classes are taught in English. Extended learning activities conducted in English are implemented in other subjects. For example, some of the modules are taught with English as the medium of instruction to enhance students’ ability to use the syntax and vocabulary of English. In addition, extra-curricular extended learning activities are also conducted in English.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : 1. Teaching is focused on the differing abilities and cognitive development of individual students and designed in a learner-centered approach. 2. An inquisitive learning process is encouraged for the acquisition of general and specialized knowledge, logical thinking and calculation skills. 3. Self Regulated Learning Scheme is adopted. We hope our students can be equipped with the skills of “life-long learning” and “learning to learn”. 4. Continuous assessment as a form of learning feedback conducted throughout the year besides the regular tests and examinations. 5. 45-minute classes are conducted to allow more time for a diverse range of highly intensive activities. 6. A school-based curriculum is set out for junior secondary forms according to the needs and abilities of the students in line with the NSS syllabus and assessment. 7. ‘Morning Reading with teachers’, Reading Awards, and online reading schemes, plus top reader recommendations are all offered to encourage a good reading habit.
(3) School-based Curriculum : 1. Electives: 2X and 3X. Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Economics, Geography, Chinese History, History, Tourism and Hospitality Studies, and Visual Arts, Information and Communication Technology, Health management and Social care, Technology and Living.
2. Curriculum highlights: Several school-based curricula are implemented at junior secondary level to raise students’ interest in learning. These curricula are Values Education, STEM courses, History and Culture, Life and Society, and Information and Communication Technology.
(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks : 1. Self Regulated Learning: Self Regulated Learning programme is implemented in junior secondary forms. Students do pre-class preparation according to self-learning outline designed by the teacher. Group discussion, presentation, reading aloud, peer evaluation and teachers’ guidance are conducted to enhance learning effectiveness. Over the past seven years, our students have clearly gained thorough understanding of the meaning of learning adopting suitable methods of learning. This has enabled them to achieve good results in the Diploma of Secondary Education Examination. At the same time, students have developed the belief in life-long learning and a positive attitude. 2. English Learning Programme: Enhancement of students’ English skills through small-class tiered instruction, recruitment of Native English Speaking Teachers (NET), and various English learning activities. 3. Continuous efforts have been made to develop the Biotechnology curriculum over the years. In recent years, emphasis has been put on the enhancement of integrated learning of mechanical engineering, mathematics, and information and communication technology. This aims to encourage students to learn in a “hands-on” manner. As proposed by Kolb in his theory of experiential learning, experience is the starting point of learning, and each experience is turned into knowledge through sharing and reflection. This shows that students not only accumulate experience and knowledge during the learning process, they can also build a proactive learning attitude.
(5) Life Planning Education : Through-train planning is provided to students to cater for their needs at different learning stages. Students develop self-understanding from a young age. They identify their own qualities and build positive values and learning attitude based on their qualities. In addition, students are introduced to various pathways for further studies and working life to help them equip themselves. Financial management education is implemented to help students cultivate good money management habits and positive values.

In addition, the school also conducts monthly “Life Planning Lessons” for junior secondary students. This aims to help them understand their strengths and weaknesses and stay positive and proactive in adversity. We also hope that students can develop a good understanding of different jobs and the joy and challenges involved, and “persevere” under all circumstances.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : To cater for individual differences of students, our school adopts teaching in small groups and collaborative teaching. For some of the Secondary One subjects (Chinese, English, Mathematics and Science), tiered assignments are used. Teachers customize appropriate teaching materials to meet students’ individual needs and help them learn effectively.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : Student Support Team had been set up to provide appropriate support to students with special educational needs. We aim to help students develop their personal potential and integrate them into the life of mainstream school. The main members of our Student Support Team include our Vice-Principal, Special Education Needs Coordinator, Special Education Needs Supporting Teacher, Chinese Language Teacher, English Language Teacher, School Counselor, School Social Worker, Educational Psychologist and Teaching Assistant. We do not only work for our students but work together with class teachers and parents. For Teachers: In order to enhance the learning effectiveness of our students and to provide appropriate support for them, SST and the class teacher discuss students’ learning progress and relevant strategies constantly. The school also actively encourages teachers to enroll in inclusive education-related courses to enhance the overall professional competence of teachers in special education. For Students: In order to identify the special educational needs of students at an earlier stage, we conduct Chinese reading and writing tests for S1 students at the beginning of each year. In addition, the school has used the "Learning Support Grant" to recruit additional staff or purchase professional supporting services to implement various training courses and group activities such as speech therapy to meet the special learning needs of individual students. For parents: The school attaches great importance to the cooperation between home and school. In addition to establishing a constant communication mechanism, we also organize talks and individual meetings for parents to better understand their child’s learning progress at school.
(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; organising cultural integration activities; and hiring additional manpower and/or translation/interpretation services to facilitate the communication with parents.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for Learning and Assessment : 1. Our school values students' learning process and progress. Besides tests and examinations, periodic progress evaluations are conducted to evaluate the performance of students. 2. Our school promotes students' self-evaluation, enabling students to realize their strengths and weaknesses. 3. Adjustments built into the School’s Internal Examination mechanism to meet students’ needs include: simplified exam paper, extended time allowed, computer screen to help students read the exam paper.
Home-school Co-operation and School Ethos
(1) Home-School Co-operation : Through the Parent-Teacher Association activities, close liaison with parents is ensured. The school works hand in hand with parent managers and parent volunteers in the best interest of students.
(2) School Ethos : Our school puts emphasis on moral education and training students’ endurance and self-discipline. Students are taught to respect others, strive for academic excellence, and care for the school so as to create a harmonious and orderly school culture. The school organizes various activities such as the Big Brother and Big Sister Scheme and Leadership Scheme for students’ whole person development. This also helps students to have good self-understanding, develop their potential and cultivate positive values, in order to become a self-loving teenager with self respect. In addition, Quality Circle is formed at all levels. It aims to combine the resources of the class teachers of the same grade to provide comprehensive care to the students. In our “through-train” school, secondary students have the opportunity to practise leadership and peer counseling through helping their primary schoolmates. They can learn to care for others, enhance their communication and social skills and build their sense of responsibility.
Future Development
(1) School Development Plan : Cultivate students’ self-respect and self-confidence; enhance students’ Self Regulated Learning ability and learning effectiveness.
(2) Teacher Professional Training and Development : Our School encourages the continuous professional development of teachers. We implement various schemes and activities for our teaching staff, including the Peer Teaching Observation, Guidance and Assistance for new teachers, and sharing of teaching experiences, to enhance their teaching capabilities.
Life-wide Learning (including Five Essential Learning Experiences to be provided through Key Learning Areas, Extra-curricular Activities, Co-curricular Activities, etc.) : Emphasis is put on organizing learning activities outside the classroom to enrich students’ learning experiences in “intellectual development, moral and civic education, community service, physical and aesthetic development, and career-related experiences”. For example, English drama, reading club, science exploration interest classes, hydroponic gardening, astronomy society, volunteer services, leadership teams, peer counseling, Auxiliary Medical Service, scout activities, marching band, Chinese orchestra, choir, hand-bell team, dance team, cheerleading team, basketball, football and volleyball teams, kin-ball team, archery team, track and field team, balloon art, overseas cultural exchange. These diverse activities aim at boosting students’ whole-person development.
