School Characteristics School Characteristics
School Management
(1)School's Major Concerns : Based on the spirit of Christianity, our education focuses on students’ physical, mental, spiritual and academic development. In addition, the school implements STEM and IT education in order to raise students' abilities.
(2) School Management Organisation : Besides the 8 committees established, there are also 6 functional teams which are responsible for school admin, academic affairs and student development.
(3) Incorporated Management Committee / School Management Committee / Management Committee : The Incorporated Management Committee of our school was established on 31 August, 2015. The IMC managers include members from the sponsoring body, teachers, parents, alumni and one independent professional from the community.
(4) School Green Policy : Environmental protection is one of the prime concerns of our school. Clear guidelines have been set up for the proper use of air-conditioners and students are often instilled with green messages through activities such as the setting up of “Green Ambassador” in each class and the annual whole school campaign on “Air-con Free Day”. These put the ideas of energy saving and reducing greenhouse emissions into action. In order to encourage rubbish recycling among students, recycle bins are placed on all floors and the covered-playground.
Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : English is adopted as the medium of instruction in all subjects except Chinese Language, Liberal Studies, Chinese History, Physical Education, Life-wide Learning, Religious Assembly, Ethics and Religious Studies. The school is committed to enhancing a lively English-rich learning environment and providing authentic situations for students to practise the language they have learnt in English classes. Through various activities, like One-minute Inspiration speeches by students, sharings by the NET teacher and alumni, subject-based English learning activities and English Speaking Week, students are provided with opportunities to emulate each other in the way of speaking English. To further encourage students in practicing English proactively, the school designed Self-directed English Learning Award Scheme to encourage students to join various kinds of English activities for continuous studies.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : The school strives to consolidate students' basic knowledge, develop their generic skills and encourage in students' positive value and attitude. An enquiry approach is adopted in our curriculum which focuses on active and interactive learning in lessons, encouraging students to learn through questioning and discussion so as to develop their higher order thinking and ability to construct knowledge.
In order to promote self-directed learning, the school joined the Quality School Improvement Project offered by CUHK. Through attending seminars as well as implementing collaborative lesson preparation and lesson observation, we aim to equip students with high ability to achieve self-directed learning autonomously. Hence, students are prepared for life-long learning in the future. The school also provides life-wide learning opportunities, which aim to foster students' generic skills through extending, enabling and enriching the knowledge obtained in the classroom. Besides, teaching with I.T. is adopted by our subject teachers in lessons to raise the effectiveness of learning. The use of tablet computers and various online learning platforms (e.g. Schoology and HKEdCity’s Online Question Bank) helps with e-learning and m-learning inside the classroom and also for extended activities to raise the effectiveness of teaching and learning. Starting from academic year 2021-2022, electronic whiteboards will be installed in classrooms. The upgrade in hardware can enhance interactions among students and peers, hence learning efficiency and effectiveness.
(3) School-based Curriculum : 1. Electives: 2X and 3X. Our school provides different combinations of subject electives for students to choose from.
2. Curriculum highlights: (a) To cope with different students' interest and the trend of social development, starting from 2021-22, the school offers Visual Arts and Tourism and Hospitality as two new elective subjects for students to choose from. (b) Junior form curriculum focuses on helping students understand the basic subject knowledge, its connection with senior form curriculum and development of ability, values and attitude. In 2021-22, school-based curriculum integration is practiced in junior forms, including the subjects Science, Technology Education and Arts Education, etc.
(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks : The school endeavors to develop the four key tasks set in the new curriculum. In line with Reading to Learn, various activities like Reading Week, Inter-house Reading Competition, Chinese and English Extensive Reading Scheme and on-line reading are organized. On top of these, native English teachers are employed to lead students in English reading activities so as to promote and encourage reading. In the area of Project Learning, suitable project themes are planned with the collaboration of different subjects to cultivate students’ enquiry spirits and generic skills. As for Information Technology Teaching and Learning, the school encourages students to enhance their learning effectiveness through taking part in e-learning and mobile-learning with the aid of iPads and different online learning platforms outside lessons. To cope with the current development trend in e-teaching, apart from making use of different kinds of iPad software for interactive and assessment activities, teachers constantly attend different professional development programmes on e-learning. For the last key task, Religious, Moral and Civic Education, the school implements “Life Education” to help students calm their spirit and reflect on the meaning of life through retreat and meditation. Besides, a different theme is set every cycle for spiritual development and moral education for morning assemblies, class teacher periods and school hall assemblies. This helps students establish virtues, and a positive attitude to life. There are also voluntary service programmes to cultivate students' awareness of social services. In addition, students are encouraged to join activities related to national education. These are provided by the school or other institutions in order to promote in students a better understanding to our motherland.
(5) Life Planning Education : Through life planning education, we help students plan their future career, establish academic aspirations as well as attain the goal of self-realization. Based on their learning, career goals and other areas of life, students can make informed and responsible choices to achieve their goals at different stages of life.
The school sees the importance of students’ self-awareness and self-development. Through the junior secondary “Grow Young Programme”, the school cultivates self-awareness and the abilities of setting goals and of reflection among students. The focuses of the development program for junior forms are the setting of learning goals and action plans, the development of interests on extra-curricular activities and the preparation of the selection of subjects in senior forms. Based on the variety of career paths, the school provides individual guidance to senior form students, students are able to review and reflect on their learning experiences, which helps to cultivate a positive learning attitude and enhance their motivation towards learning, thereby enabling them to objectively look into their interests, abilities and career goals in order to make suitable choices for preparation of their future careers.
In the aspect of career exploration, the school encourages students to understand themselves through self-exploration so as to find a suitable direction for their own lives. Through various school activities including seminars on further studies, visits to local tertiary institutions, the Students Activity Learning Day, and senior form students’ work experience program, the school provides chances for students to acquire more career-related knowledge, which can be of better use for students in their preparation of their future careers.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : Various schemes and activities were planned and implemented to cater for student diversity in school. For better caring of individual students in classroom learning, small group teaching is practiced in S.1 and all senior forms, in which 7 smaller groups are arranged in S.1 for language lessons while regrouping 4 classes into 5 smaller groups is implemented in senior forms. Besides Homework Tutorial Class, Enhancement Courses and Revision Classes, the school also recommends students to attend Enhancement courses held by tertiary institutions and The Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education. To provide a suitable environment for our students’ development, co-class teacher scheme is implemented in both S.1 and S.2. In addition, Leadership Training and Sunshine Schemes are provided for catering to the needs of students’ development in different aspects. Besides, the school has established a SEN Team to cater to the special needs of some students in their learning.

The team consisted of members from different committees, heads of Chinese and English Panels as well as the educational psychologist, the social worker and the teaching support assistant of our school. The members completed related professional training, and used the Learning Support Grant for Secondary Schools to design some school-based supportive programmes for students with special learning needs to help them better cope with the curriculum. The school also used this grant to source services from outside school organizations so as to design individual and group activities for students in need. To better co-operate with parents, the SEN team also invited parents to attend meetings, to jointly stipulate personal learning plans for students with special education needs and to review the effectiveness of the plans regularly. It also organized workshops for parents to help them take care of and teach their children effectively.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for Learning and Assessment : For students’ assessment for learning, the school conducts two term tests and one final exam every year for all forms except form 6 which has one term test and one mock exam only. Moreover, the school also attends to the performance of students in their daily assessments. Besides, Individual Education Plan and Assessment Accommodations are administered to individual students who need special care in learning.
Home-school Co-operation and School Ethos

Various educational events for parents are held each year to help parents have a better understanding of their children’s learning in school. These include an orientation seminar for S.1 parents, themed talks or seminars for parents of each form and parents’ days (held three times each year). Furthermore, the PTA organizes a number of activities which provides a sound foundation for home-school cooperation.
