Learning and Teaching Strategies:
1. Principles of curriculum planning: According to the three principles: Students' Needs, Teachers' Strengths and Social Trends, we constantly improve and develop the school curriculum. Gifted education, special learning support, career planning and STEM are all educational policies that our school attaches importance to. 2. Cherish the achievements of students: The acquisition of knowledge requires meaningful learning experiences. Deep learning depends on the ability to apply what one has learnt and to put it into practical use. Besides the written examination scores of various subjects, students’ report cards also have a comprehensive record of students' efforts and achievements in different areas, including social services, competitions, moral education learning activities and so on. Senior form report cards refer to the Student Learning Profile and provide personal statement items for students to self-evaluate and reflect on their learning. 3. Policies to popularise gifted education: Different subjects have the responsibility of promoting gifted education and providing higher-level learning opportunities. Through the 3-tier support model (school-based whole-class teaching approach, school-based pull-out programme approach and off-school support approach), we can provide excellent learning opportunities for students with different learning abilities.
Direct public transportation to School : LRT (615P, 615, 610) and LRT feeder bus route 506.
Remarks : Popularization of gifted education: Our school emphasises extensive support and does not set up application barriers (university paid courses, online courses of the Education Bureau). We welcome students of different levels and abilities to participate in different courses of gifted education and provide administrative, financial and academic support to them. Over the past three years, 161students have taken online gifted courses and 41 have completed university gifted courses.
Sister Schools: Our school has three overseas sister schools: Howick College (New Zealand), Tokushima Kenritsu Ikedakoto School (Japan) and Friedensschule Münster (Germany).
