Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : Chinese as the major medium of instruction.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : Our school is a government aided and well-facilitated school. It was a skills opportunity school when it was first established in 1998 but as all skills opportunity schools started the mainstreaming process in 2003, it has gradually transformed into a 6-year aided secondary school. To date, we have all along been promoting the same school mission, specializing in students with special educational needs and developing different professional certification courses to help students explore multiple pathways.
To cater for students' learning competence and special educational needs, we provide a diversified curriculum for our students. We have made reference to the central school curriculum framework and content set by the Education Bureau to tailor-make our teaching materials, arrange learning activities and assessments for our students. We also use appropriate teaching and learning strategies to provide comprehensive education for our students. Flexible and interactive ways are adopted to help them master difficult concepts and prompt them to think for themselves. We help them build up basic life skills and positive working attitudes through different practical skills training and pre-vocational training courses. To achieve these, our school:
1. adopts different teaching materials and assessments in each level to cater for learning diversities of our students;
2. has established Life Planning and Pre-vocational Training lessons for S3-S4 and S5-S6 students respectively, allowing them to know more about themselves at the earliest possible time to better plan for their future.
3. has set up the Student Learning Support Committee which offers our students a diverse range of learning and growth support, after-school classes and counselling services.
(3) School-based curriculum : 1. Electives: Catering Services, Design and Applied Technology, Information and Communication Technology, Health and Social Care
2. Curriculum highlights:
a. We divide students into different classes, groups and tiers based on their learning abilities.
b. Some subjects adopt tailor-made teaching materials and adjust teaching plans and strategies according to the learning progress and abilities of our students.
c. We help students acquire recognized qualifications before their graduation to enhance their employment and career development capabilities, including:
- implement both Level 1 and Level 2 Qualification Framework programmes in Catering Services and Design and Applied Technology subjects within regular school hours.
- prepare students to take the Vocational English Programmes and Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) examinations after class.
(4) Major Renewed Emphases in the School Curriculum : 1. Strengthening values education:
Our school cares about students’ spiritual and moral development. To help them become responsible citizens, we nurture positive values in students through class teachers’ periods, weekly assemblies, educational talks and various learning activities.
2. Language across the Curriculum:
Our school develops cross-curricular language learning strategies to let students integrate knowledge into different KLAs, develop their generic skills and foster positive values. In addition to reading activities, we also provide online reading platforms in both Chinese and English subjects to help students cultivate a good reading habit.
3. Promoting STEAM Education and Information Technology in Education:
In order to achieve the learning objectives of helping students “acquire and construct a broad and solid knowledge base”, “develop and apply generic skills in an integrative manner” and “use information and information technology ethically, flexibly and effectively”, our school promotes STEAM and information technology education. We hope to strengthen students’ abilities to integrate and apply knowledge and skills in the STEAM-related areas and develop their good information technology literacy so as to help them get better prepared for future life in the society with rapid technological changes.
4. Vocational and Professional Education and Training (VPET):
To tie in VPET with the government promotion, our school organises and offers diversified vocational training courses including the Qualifications Framework certificate courses in Vegetarian Cookery, Engineering and Technology and Vocational English, “Health Care Practice” applied learning course, hospitality and tourism certificate course, etc.

Senior students are able to join team and individual consultations, school and company visits, vocational aptitude tests, interview workshops, internship programmes, etc. Some of them can learn proper social etiquette, positive attitude towards work and communication skills in workplace from mentors in the Mentorship Programme.
Besides, we cooperate with non-profit making organization to provide an additional one-year employment support or individual follow up services for all S.6 graduates. Parents can also seek for suitable support services for their children from these organizations.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : Based on students' distinctive learning competences and special educational needs, our school adopts a tailor-made 6-year school-based curriculum. We divide them into different classes so that particular pedagogies, learning activities, content and assignments can be set accordingly. For instance, students in the same level are restreamed into different groups in English and Mathematics lessons. Differentiated teaching is applied in Chinese lessons. By doing so, students can have learning materials with varying levels of difficulties that are fit for their individual learning needs.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : Our school cultivates an inclusive culture and promotes mutual respect of individual differences.
Our Student Support Committee comprises the Principal, Special Educational Needs Coordinator, Special Educational Needs support teachers, designated teachers, student counsellors and learning support assistants. They work closely with the educational psychologists, speech therapists, clinical psychologists and occupational therapists to provide a holistic care for learner diversity in our school.
To further support the development of learning, life and social skills of our students, we deploy the Learning Support Grant flexibly to appoint professionals and procure services for organizing various types of after-school learning and support programmes.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for learning and assessment : There are two examinations per year. Multiple assessment measures are applied in different subjects to cater for the learning needs of our students. For example, quizzes, oral assessments, performance assessments, teachers' observation and project learning are conducted to help teachers evaluate students' learning and provide constructive feedback for them. There are also special examination arrangements to cater for the needs of our students such as reading the examination papers, explaining the questions, extra time allowance, enlarged question papers and special reminders, etc.
Home-School Co-operation and School Ethos
(1) Home-School Co-operation : 1. To enhance the close collaboration between the school and parents;
2. To foster the academic, physical and mental growth of the students;
3. To develop the potential of parents and enhance a closer parent-child relationship.
(2) School Ethos : Our students are polite and well-disciplined. Through enhancing their self-confidence, self-respect, self-discipline and self-reliance, we endeavour to train them on how to approach any adversities they may encounter in life. As a result, they can confidently progress to courses offered by other institutions or contribute in their future workplaces and the society.

(2) Teacher Professional Training and Development : A large proportion of our staff have completed special education training. Our school encourages teachers' continuous professional training and development. We also organize school-based workshops to reinforce teachers' skills in catering for students with special educational needs.

We organize different extra-curricular activities to enrich students' school life, increase their sense of belonging and enhance the positive relationship between teachers and students.
