Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : We aim to train our students to be biliterate and trilingual through intra-school and inter-school activities. Under the Fine-tuning language policy, English is used as a medium of instructions in some Form 1-3 classes/subjects. (Please refer to Subjects offered in the 2022/23 & 2023/24 school year) We offer extended learning activities in English for subjects such as Mathematics, Integrated Science, Integrated Humanities in junior forms. In junior forms, we organize drama performances, writing courses, oral workshops and an online reading programme. We organize a Form 3 Bridging course which aims to enable students to study the non-language subjects in English. Depending on students' Putonghua ability of Form 1 and Form 2 students, we may offer one class using Putonghua to teach Chinese. We offer a wide range of activities such as Chinese week, English Week, an Online reading Programme and Putonghua competition. We also train students for National Putonghua Proficiency Test.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : In junior forms, the three core subjects as well as Integrated Humanities, Integrated Science, History, Geography, Life & Society and Integrated Business aim to improve students' Chinese, English and Putonghua standard and their thinking skills and various generic skills. We also nurture generic skills and analytical power through life-wide learning period, project learning and collaborative learning. In senior forms, we help students to excel in public examinations. We encourage students to set targets and run homework assistance schemes after school to nurture their perseverance. Based on each key learning area, cross-curriculum collaboration and activities are incorporated to enhance our students' generic skills and learning effectiveness. Moreover, we place great emphasis on bridging the gap between the curriculum and students' learning ability in junior and senior forms. We offer a great variety of elective subjects, part of which are in both Chinese and English to cater for students' diversities and interests. To enhance students' ability and interest in reading, we conduct Reading Award Schemes, iLearner and Online Reading Programmes. We focus on nurturing students' self-directed learning through pre-lesson assignments and online self-learning systems to establish our students' self-learning habit. Also, our school develops e-learning proactively, making use of different platforms for teachers and students to carry out online learning to match the trend of learning development.

2. Curriculum highlights: In order to cater for learner diversity and meet the different needs of our students in regular classrooms, our school implements differentiation in our curriculum planning, including subject contents, teaching progress and assessments. E-learning is also used in teaching and learning to promote self-directed learning. In the senior secondary curriculum, our school offers more than ten elective subjects for students to choose. Our students can choose 2-3 elective subjects as well as the Extended Part of Mathematics. Our school strives to prepare students with multiple development pathways for further studies and career development. There are two sessions for Other Learning Experience (OLE) every week in our school timetable to extend the classroom experiences of our students. Through a wide range of activities, such as field trips, visits, talks and seminars and so forth, students would be able to deepen and consolidate their classroom learning and further develop their multiple intelligences. The Talent Ignition Programmes (S.4-S.5) aligned with the school-based gifted education development, help students discover their potential and improve learning motivation by exposing students to a wide spectrum of areas such as languages, technology, reading, arts and physical fitness.
(4) Major Renewed Emphases in the School Curriculum : We promote e-learning. We also attach great importance to learner diversity through adjusting the syllabus, adopting grouping for teaching and implementing different strategies and methods.

Our school also puts effort into broadening the student's learning experience to develop their potential, boost their positive energy and enhance their mental well being.
(5) Life Planning Education : We organize activities and career planning courses at all levels to help students understand themselves and set goals. The talks and workshop organised for Form 1 and Form 2 students aim to give students a preliminary understanding of themselves and the world of work. Life planning courses and lectures in Form 3 mainly help students understand the relationship between their aptitudes and high school subject selection, and set goals for future college studies. High school students will participate in a series of activities such as work experience, aptitude testing, workplace visits, alumni sharing, and mock DSE result release. The latest information on further studies will be provided to parents and students at all levels through talks. Some students will also participate in the "Civil Engineering and Development Department Summer Programme", "Greater Bay Area Internship Program for DSE Graduates", "Business-School Cooperation Program" and "Mainland Exchange" activities, etc. Our school will also provide one-on-one career counselling to all high school students.

Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : We collaborate with EDB as well as School-based support teams. Tailor-made materials, diverse teaching strategies and assessment methods are adopted to cater for students' diversity. We stream students into different groups based on their learning or language abilities. In senior forms we adopt both Chinese and English as medium of instruction in some of the elective subjects. We offer remedial and enhancement classes after school and on Saturdays. We also promote courses to gifted students and discover and train students with potentials in languages, Maths & Science, technology and leadership through school-based courses. Apart from learning aspects, we arrange for a teacher with professional qualifications in counselling to offer counselling service to students. We may coordinate with parents, social workers and education psychologists to provide an individual education plan to help students in need.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : The aims of the integrated education in our school are to assist students with special educational needs (SENs) to be accustomed to the campus life and allow other students to accept and care about SENs, so that a harmonious school atmosphere can be achieved. A SEN committee consisting of teachers, social workers and educational psychologists is established in our school. The school-based SEN social workers and educational psychologists provide consultation, counselling and group activities for students and parents regularly to cater for their needs. Also, uniform test and examination reviewing class conducted by Alumni tutors is arranged to render assistance to students with learning difficulties. We also offer emotional support so as to foster students’ all-round development and a healthy, positive mindset to face their campus lives. Different assessments, treatment services and special homework and examination arrangements are provided by the professionals. Personalized study plans would also be drawn up and executed, and the students’ learning would be monitored and discussed with parents, teachers and educational psychologists on a regular basis. By doing so, the students’ needs would be better understood with provision of effective support. We hold a range of activities throughout the school year to let students realize the diversity and differences of humans through games, experiences and film appreciation. This also brings up a message of acceptance and tolerance, which helps foster a culture of mutual respect and campus integration.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for learning and assessment : *2 uniform tests and 2 term exams are conducted per academic year. *We adjust the syllabus of assessment for SEN students.
*Supplement the exams and tests with Continuous Assessment to promote good learning habit.
