We promote self-directed learning, cultivate students' learning routines and habits, and enhance the effectiveness of learning and teaching. We are also actively promoting STEAM education, with STEAM lessons at junior secondary levels and organise cross-curricular STEAM activities, so as to enhance students' creativity, problem-solving skills and collaboration skills.

We adopt small class teaching for Chinese, English and Mathematics. We also encourage students to join various intramural and extramural activities about life experience. We hope students of different abilities can be properly taken care of. Besides, we can help to develop their potential and boost their self-confidence so that positive values and perspective of life can be further fostered and enhanced.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : Our school is committed to building an inclusive and caring culture and promoting integrated education in a whole-school approach. The Student Support Team (SST) consists of the Vice-principal, Special Education Needs Coordinator (SENCo), Counselling Mistress, Discipline Mistress, Integrated Education Support teachers, Educational Psychologist and Social Worker to provide ample and appropriate support to students with special educational needs.
We adopt a variety of training programmes and group activities, and provide individual counselling for students in need. We also use the “Learning Support Allowance” to outsource professional services such as speech therapy services, occupational therapy services and so on.
We regularly distribute up-to-date information about integrated education to all teachers, share relevant ideas and teaching suggestions, strengthen teachers' understanding of integrated education, and encourage staff to participate in the Education Bureau's training courses to enhance professional knowledge.
