Please refer to school website.

(3) Incorporated Management Committee / School Management Committee / Management Committee : With constant commitment to quality and emphasis on continuous development, our school has adopted a transparent and accountable approach to decision-making. The participatory and collaborative framework, involving the Incorporated Management Committee (IMC), the School Administration Team (SAT), the Middle Management Committee and the general staff, provides a forum for the views of different key stakeholders and caters for the holistic development of the entire school community.
(4) School Green Policy : Recycled paper, aluminium cans and plastic bottles are collected on a regular basis and recycle bins are available on the school campus. Every year, the Social Science Union organizes different activities like "One-Person-One-Flower Scheme" and Wastage Recycling Campaign" to promote environmental conservation.
Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : English is used as the medium of instruction in all subjects except Chinese Language, Chinese History and Putonghua. The school aims at developing trilingual and biliterate competence in students. Apart from regular language classes, students are engaged in learning tasks in the Independent Learning Centre facilitated by language teachers. English conversation groups led by native speakers are conducted outside class.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : The school adopts student-centred inquiry-based approach to teaching and fosters independent learning. Teachers motivate students to learn by means of questioning, group interaction, experiments and use of IT. Students are also encouraged to take the initiative to acquire knowledge and seek the truth. Taking into account students’ interests, the school curriculum is constantly revised to meet the needs of society. Through the adoption of the school-based Integrated Science curriculum and project learning, students' generic skills such as creative thinking, critical thinking and communication skills can be enhanced. The reading lesson as part of the Drop Everything And Read (DEAR) reading programme, which takes place every cycle aims at broadening students' scope of knowledge, enhancing their Chinese and English language proficiency and promoting reading in students' leisure time.
(3) School-based Curriculum : 1. Electives: 2X and 3X. Every S.4 student is required to take three electives so as to gain knowledge from various disciplines. The school has also systematically introduced the Other Learning Experiences (OLE) that align with the New Academic Structure to complement academic learning.
2. Curriculum highlights: Through the adoption of the school-based Integrated Science and Information Literacy curricula at junior level, as well as project learning and reading across the Curriculum, students' generic skills such as creative thinking, critical thinking and communication skills can be enhanced.
(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks : The Student Support Coordinating Team has been established to strengthen the moral formation of students with a switch of themes every three years. The theme for the academic years 2018-22 is "Positive Living". Through a wide range of activities, we aim at promoting students’ understanding and appreciation of oneself and others and empowering them to be persevering and resilient to challenges.

In addition, to foster students' autonomy in learning through Reading to Learn, an Information Literacy curriculum is being developed. Also, whole-school initiatives are being implemented to further motivate students to read outside class. Staff development programmes are in place to provide support for teachers in carrying out related measures.
(5) Life Planning Education : The Careers Guidance Team aims to foster students' self-understanding, personal planning, goal setting and reflective habits of mind. By helping students to understand their own career and academic aspirations, they can make career decisions in accordance with their interests, abilities and orientations.
Students can meet with our Careers Teachers to seek careers support and advice in the Careers Room. The Careers Room contains a repertoire of resources on career life planning, further education and career opportunities. Every year, the Careers Guidance Team holds seminars for parents and students as well as sharing by alumni. Also, with the implementation of a mentorship programme, students will be given opportunities to connect with our alumni with the aim of fostering positive work value and preparing them for their future careers. In addition, the team partners with companies from the business sector to provide different learning opportunities for our students. Students can thus develop the competencies needed for progression or entry into the next educational or occupational level.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : Each subject department has devised their own strategies to cater for learner diversity, for instance, the introduction of enrichment Mathematics courses, remedial Chinese, English and Mathematics classes in the lower forms, the streaming of Form 1 students according to their level of proficiency in the Chinese language, the English language and Mathematics, introduction of Form 6 Chinese, English and Mathematics remedial classes and organization of English conversation groups.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : The SEN Team caters to the special educational needs of the SEN students by means of classroom seating arrangement, homework accommodation, examination arrangements and provision of counselling service by the school social worker and support for parents. Every year, the team holds regular meetings during which various measures for assisting SEN students to overcome their learning difficulties are discussed and considered from every angle.
(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. Our school provides after-school Chinese language support to non-Chinese speaking students. The curriculum is devised according to their Chinese language proficiency and personal preference.
