Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : English has been adopted as the medium of instruction for all subjects (except Chinese, Chinese History, Putonghua and Religious Studies). To enhance the foreign language-learning environment, there are three NETs at our school, and we launch the after-school one-on-one online oral practice programme, with external English, Japanese, German and Korean tutors as coaches.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : IT Education is incorporated in lessons in order to enhance the learning and teaching effectiveness. The computer curriculum for students in S1-S3 has been augmented with the introduction of new modules such as "AI lessons" to nurture students as future leaders, empowering them to harness the full potential of AI. Furthermore, different subjects will incorporate augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR) technology. The S3 Science Extension class will participate in the STEM Expo, which provides students with a platform to showcase their innovative ideas.

Student Development Report
Commencing in 2023, it has been decided that the conventional academic report will be substituted by the "Student Development Report." This report will encompass an evaluation of a student's academic performance, subject knowledge, subject activities performance, and subject attitude. Additionally, a student's conduct will be assessed based on their self-discipline, manner, service, and diligence.
(3) School-based curriculum : 1. Electives: All S4 students are required to take 3X (3 elective subjects), and individual students can make adjustments according to their needs and abilities. In addition to traditional subjects, our school also offers elective subjects such as Literature in English and Music in response to students' learning and interest development. There is no minimum class size limit.
2. Curriculum highlights: Apart from the traditional disciplines, we emphasize on the development of students’ exposure. In junior form, Literature in English and S.3 Science Extension are offered. Teaching staff from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University are invited to teach Artificial Intelligence in our school, and the topics are Biotechnology, Big Data and Engineering Physics.

Science, Art and Language Enrichment Programmes (SALep) - Students will have SALep lessons during school time. S.1 and S.2 students are required to complete the compulsory modules, Chinese Calligraphy Class and English Drama Class respectively. From December onwards, students may select one elective module from 17 modules below: Japanese Class, Korean Class, German Class, French Class, Spanish, Food Science Class, Chinese Calligraphy (Intermediate Level), AI in Arts, Digital Drawing, Creative Cooking Class, Creative programming and Electronics, Mathematics Plus, Advanced English Drama and Aviation Technology. Some courses are taught by external tutors and all fees will be sponsored by the school.
(4) Major Renewed Emphases in the School Curriculum : In recent years, our school has focused on developing into an internationalized aided secondary school. To widen students’ global perspective, our school has implemented the ‘Global Program’, which includes organizing study tours, sister school exchange activities, conducting global project and indulging in academic dialogues with professors and scholars from different regions with students from sister schools. In 2022-23, our school organized ‘STEM, History and Cultural Tour to Japan’, ‘UK Study Tour’ and ‘Switzerland, Scotland Music and Arts Immersion Tour’. Our school has also organized real-time virtual tours, like ‘Real-time Virtual Tour: Exploring Sustainable Urban Living and Green Technology in Germany’, and ‘Real-time Virtual Tour: Exploring Ancient Roman society and life through the Roman Colosseum’. Up to now, our school has formed sister school partnership with 21 schools in the Mainland and overseas, many of which have formed ‘Reciprocal School Visit Scheme’ with us. To cater for the need of students studying abroad upon graduation, our school provides foreign language classes in which students can study Japanese, Korean and German. The aim is to equip students with the language skills needed to obtain accredited language qualification in international language proficiency tests, so that they can pursue tertiary education overseas.
(5) Life Planning Education : In the school-based life planning education, through immersive experiences and cross-curriculum programmes like information talks and sharing sessions, S4 to S6 University Dream Flyers Programmes, Odysseys to Universities, personality tests and career exploring activities, students are more equipped with the knowledge, skills and attitude to make wise choices in accordance with their interests, abilities and orientations. Having fostered connections with alumni and parents, we offer student internship opportunities in the Greater Bay Area, guiding students to integrate their academic or career aspirations with whole-person development and life-long learning. Parents are also invited to share their professional backgrounds and provide valuable career advice for students, enabling students to make informed decisions and providing diverse workplace exposures.

Our school has established sister school partnerships with renowned universities from different parts of the world, including Tsinghua University, Konkuk University, Rikkyo University, University of Aizu, J. F. Oberlin University, Lunghwa University of Science and Technology, Tunghai University and University of Alberta as of the academic year of 2022-2023. Under the School Principal’s Nominations Agreements with these sister schools, there will be 2 to 10 annual admission quota for our S6 students and successful applicants will receive an admission offer of a Bachelor's degree programme before the DSE results release. Under the scheme of “Hong Kong Students Recommended for Tsinghua Admission 2023”, our school is granted 2 quotas for nomination and Tsinghua University waives the tuition fee for successful applicants. Rikkyo University and J. F. Oberlin University also provide a deduction for tuition fee for eligible students as well.

We have Academic Prefects, a group of students with outstanding academic achievement, to provide academic assistance to junior form students in the hope of creating the culture of caring in the campus. We strive to nurture students' whole-personal development through multiple aspects of development, namely spiritual, moral, intellectual, physical, social and aesthetic. Soaking students in the love of God, we can promote excellent school ethos.
