We also liaise with the Chinese University of Hong Kong to nurture NgYukers with the 3Cs Spirit, namely: Confidence, Care and Commitment.
(2) School Management Organisation : Our School Sponsoring Body is Ng Yuk Secondary School Governing Board Limited. Our school managers consist of notables and professionals from various fields supporting the work of teachers wholeheartedly. To involve different stakeholders in school management, we established the Incorporated Management Committee in 2008, inviting teaching staff, parents and alumni to be our school managers. To strengthen communication with students, a consultative committee made up of student representatives is set up. The Principal meets with class representatives regularly to solicit students’ views on school policies.

Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : Our school places great emphasis on developing students’ biliteracy and trilingualism. To enhance students' English language proficiency, our students have an exchange programme with international school students during the lessons and after school. Through the exchange programme, students can improve their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.

It is our belief that speech training is an effective way to help students master languages. English, Cantonese and Putonghua Choral Speaking teams have been set up in junior forms. Students are also encouraged to take part in solo-verse speaking, dramatic duologue and rehearsed original scene competitions. Our students have been awarded Championship in various competitions. Moreover, our students actively participate in writing competitions, public speaking contests, drama competitions, slogan competitions and the like to broaden their horizons and enhance their language proficiency.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : Since 2013, our school has been promoting Self-directed Learning and e-Learning. All teachers have been equipped with a computer tablet. Various kinds of reading activities are in place to cultivate the reading culture in school. A subject-based reading programme is implemented to increase students’ exposure to different reading genres and subject knowledge. Besides, students’ reading habit is developed and general knowledge is constructed through the morning reading programme and different kinds of book sharing activities. This year, a 'Reading to Learn' period is introduced to boost students' reading and writing abilities. To foster STEM education, students are provided with ample opportunities to learn more about science, technology and mathematics, and take part in various inter-school competitions.
(3) School-based Curriculum : 1. Electives: 2X. In addition to taking the 4 core subjects, senior form students can choose from 12 electives according to their own interests.
2. Curriculum highlights:
(1) Mastering two languages and three dialects;
(2) Equipping students with broad knowledge base;
(3) Developing multiple intelligences;
(4) Building a healthy lifestyle; active participation in school activities;
(5) Cultivating a vision in life-planning; nurturing a positive learning attitude;
(6) Becoming a civic-minded citizen; nurturing oneself so as to reach out to others.
(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks : The theme of the Three-Year School Plan (2021-24): Nurturing oneself through diversified learning, Reaching out to others through giving back to society.
1. To learn enthusiastically, explore knowledge, pursue truthfulness and innovation.
2. To develop diversified talents, care for the community, and embrace challenges.

To learn enthusiastically and explore knowledge, our school promotes ‘Self-directed Learning’ and ‘e-Learning’ to broaden students’ horizons and enhance their learning motivation. Each year, the two 'Life-wide Learning Days' and subject-based co-curricular activities such as workplace visits, S.1 excursion to Central and Sheung Wan, and S2 and S4 cross-border learning trips provide enriched opportunities for students to apply their knowledge and skills in community work. With the support from 'Project WeCan' of Wharf Limited and 'Quality School Improvement Project' of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, our students are actively involved in a whole array of inter-school and territory-wide competitions, have a strong quest for knowledge and strive for academic excellence. All these endeavours facilitate the creation of a promising future.

In addition, tutorial classes such as Saturday mentorship classes, HKDSE elite classes, remedial classes, consolidation classes, TSA preparation classes and enrichment classes of various subjects are organised to equip students of varied abilities and interests with exam-tackling skills and to boost their performance in public exams.
(5) Life Planning Education : To foster students’ life planning, a ‘Life Planning Resources Centre’ has been set up and a 'Life Planning Handbook' has been devised to help students identify personal development goals. In collaboration with different subjects and departments as well as various organisations, a whole array of career and life planning activities such as Education and Careers Expo, Disney Job Tasting Programme, and Vocational and Professional Education and Training are arranged to enable students to undergo diversified learning experiences and set personal goals for further studies and career development.

Through Project WeCan, students participate in a whole series of life planning activities including the Mentorship Scheme and Job Tasting Programme. Through the 1-2 week summer internship programme at the subsidiaries of Wheelock Properties Limited and Wharf Limited, our students can grow and learn, as well as gain a better understanding of the daily operation of business.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : To strengthen support for student diversity and enhance learning efficacy, we implement small class and student streaming policy from S.1 to S.6. To facilitate the implementation of 'Self-directed Learning', students are grouped together according to their learning ability. Learning efficacy is thus maximized through systematic lesson preparation, group discussion, e-Learning, sharing and collaboration.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : Our learning support team provides support for students with Special Educational Needs. Students with Special Educational Needs can receive appropriate training and parents will be informed of their children’s progress.
(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; and organising cultural integration activities.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for Learning and Assessment : There are formative and summative assessments in all subjects. For summative assessment, there is one uniform test and there are two end-of-term exams per academic year. Students will be given special exam arrangement based on experts’ evaluation reports.
Home-school Co-operation and School Ethos
(1) Home-School Co-operation : It has been 44 years since the establishment of the Parents' Association. A general meeting is held regularly with the presence of the Principal, Vice Principal and members of the Community Liaison Team. In the general meetings, school affairs are discussed and school improvement policies are formulated for the creation of a more favourable learning environment. Every year, the Parents' Association organises a wide variety of activities such as S.1 Parents' Orientation, 'Parents-Appreciate-Teachers-Day' and Chinese New Year Gathering. Believing in the importance of family education, the Parents' Association also cooperates with our Counselling Team and social workers to organize a series of activities and seminars for parents. Through these activities, it is our objective to raise parents' concerns on children's school life and development, thus fostering the parent-child relationship and family harmony. Apart from this, the Parents' Association also plays an active role in various school development tasks to strengthen 'Home-School Cooperation', for instance, helping with the promotion work of Shatin Secondary School Tours, sponsoring scholarships and taking part in the tendering of the school's catering service.
(2) School Ethos : To nurture NgYukers with 'Confidence, Care, and Commitment', our school conducts various activities to realise the school motto of 'Nurturing oneself so as to reach out to others'. Our school promotes a 'positive and thanksgiving culture'. A dual class teacher system in junior forms and a trio form teacher system in each form in S.1-6 are in place to provide better pastoral care for students. By fostering students’ moral values and promoting life education as well as various award and punishment schemes, students can learn to tell the rights from wrongs, build proper self-values, and establish a positive and optimistic attitude towards life so as to realize the objective of 'nurturing oneself' in the school motto. To actualise the spirit of 'Reaching out to others', all S2 and S4 students also serve the elderly by staging performances and conducting home visits. Meanwhile, the message of ‘Nurturing oneself through diversified learning, Reaching out to others through giving back to society’ is emphasized in assembly periods.

Our school offers various prizes and scholarships to students, encouraging them to strive for progress. In 2013, a ‘Study Tour for Outstanding Students’ was launched to award students for their outstanding performance in academic pursuit, conduct, sports and arts, leadership and service as well as whole-person development.
Future Development
(1) School Development Plan : It has been our privilege to be one of the participating schools in 'Project WeCan' since 2011. Students are granted the opportunity to undergo diversified learning experiences. The school development plan consists of the following eight items:
(1) Reinforcement of self-directed learning
(2) Development of creative education
(3) Enrichment of after-school learning
(4) Scholarship of Wheelock Properties Limited
(5) Fostering holistic education
(6) Arts and sports nurturing
(7) Corporate-School Life Path Mapping Programme
(8) Teachers' professional development

In 2013, the Education Bureau conducted an External School Review in our school and positive feedback was given to our holistic approach to education. As pointed out in the report, our school took great enthusiasm in the launching of the school-based curriculum reform, which successfully explored students’ potentials. Besides, we were able to take advantage of small class teaching to develop 'Self-directed Learning'. Our dedication to creating a caring school culture, nurturing students’ leadership skills and cultivating students' serving spirit was also recognized and commended in the report.
(2) Teacher Professional Training and Development : We have a great team of experienced teachers with 20 teachers holding master's degrees and an average working experience of over 10 years. Facing the keen competition brought by globalisation, teachers' professional development is emphasised in our school. For years, our school has been supported by renowned experts of various subjects from the Quality School Improvement Project of CUHK, who have been involved in our discussions on subject-based and form-based lesson study, 'Self-directed Learning', peer lesson observation and peer book inspection, to enhance learning efficacy inside and outside classrooms. Besides attending 'Joint-School Teachers' Professional Development Day' organized by 'Project WeCan', we also opened our classrooms and conducted sharing sessions in the 'Self-directed Learning Network - Teachers' Development Week' launched by the Hong Kong Association of Heads of Secondary Schools to explore ways of raising the effectiveness of Self-directed Learning. In recent years, students' resilience has been a concern in society. An education psychologist from Education Bureau conducted various workshops to enhance the professional capacity of teaching staff in this sphere and to better serve students' needs, enabling them to grow healthily and happily.
Life-wide Learning (including Five Essential Learning Experiences to be provided through Key Learning Areas, Extra-curricular Activities, Co-curricular Activities, etc.) : For students' sustainable development physically and artistically, our school has designed a programme called 'One Sport/Art Item for Each' for all S.1 students since 2008. To further broaden students’ horizons, we also launched the ‘Nurturing programme for S.2 and S.3 students on Sports and Art' in 2010 and 2012 respectively. The programme covers ball games, rock climbing, cycling, AI, musical instruments, STEM, mindfulness, maker class, variety entertainment, gardening and so on. Since 2018, all S.1 to S.3 students take part in a sport or art programme after school every Tuesday.

The diverse talents and potentials of our students are best demonstrated in the prizes and awards gained. Our students were presented with the Youth Arch Top 10 Student Improvement Awards for 9 years since 2011. Prizes achieved in territory-wide competitions include: Championship in Project WeCan 10th Anniversary Logo Design Competition; First Runner-up in Putonghua Choral Speaking, Second Runner-up and Certificate of Merit in English Rehearsed Original Scene Competitions; Bronze Prize in Junior Secondary Category in National Youth Scimage Festival; First Prize in Guitar Online Performance Secondary School Category, Third Prize in Youth Pop Vocal Group, First Prize in Acapella Secondary School Category in the 7th Hong Kong International Music Festival organised by Grandmaster Orchestral Music Society; 2020-21 Sir Edward Youde Memorial Prizes for Senior Secondary School Students.
Others : In the past years, not only did 'Project WeCan' sponsor students’ participation in different activities inside and outside of school, but also set up 'Wheelock Scholarship', commending students with outstanding achievements. In addition, the Managing Director of Wheelock Properties Limited, Mr. Ricky Wong, has even led his team of elites to form partners with our teaching staff in organizing numerous meaningful activities for our students, providing unforgettable learning experiences for students at Ng Yuk. Our students were given the chance to take part in Job Tasting Programme, Business Bliss Bazaar, interview at Metro Finance and press conference announcing annual results of Wheelock Properties Limited, nurturing NgYukers with 'Confidence, Care and Commitment’.
