Learning and Teaching Plan

In order to raise students’ exposure to English and maximize the opportunity of learning English, extended learning activities have also been arranged in addition to the formal English lessons and oral lessons conducted by our NET teacher.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : We put emphasis on building learning habits and a ‘Lower Starting Point; Smaller Chucks; More Activities; Quicker Feedback’ strategy in junior forms. This strategy aims to build a solid foundation and to secure a smoother transition to the challenging Senior Secondary curriculum. Students are encouraged to play an active role in classroom learning, e-learning, extensive reading and “Other Learning Experiences” (OLE). The school also puts emphasis on catering for learning diversity. Teachers design levelled worksheets, learning activities, homework and assessments. Teachers will adopt different teaching strategies to make the classroom more interactive and interesting. In junior forms, teachers set differentiated papers to assess students more appropriately. All these strategies aim to promote teaching and learning effectiveness. To cater for learning diversity, we provide a broad senior secondary curriculum to allow students to choose subjects that suit their learning diversities, abilities and interests. To develop students’ self-learning abilities, our school has Community-based Projects, after-school learning support for junior form students, and after-school and holiday tutorials for senior form students, to ensure students’ continuous learning beyond school hours.
(3) School-based curriculum : 1. Electives: 2X and 3X. Students can choose 2 or 3 out of 11 elective subjects offered based on their own ability and needs.

(4) Major Renewed Emphases in the School Curriculum : Various working committees including English learning, reading promotion, life-wide learning and voluntary service have been set up to provide an all-round education. For English and Mathematics, our school has allocated additional English and Mathematics teachers to achieve small class teaching. We also encourage studies in different subjects through these, we can adopt different pedagogies such as elearning, flipped classroom etc. to improve the effectiveness of learning and teaching. To foster students’ personal growth, all students are encouraged to participate in the uniform groups. These programmes aim at developing students’ perseverance and positive attitude. The school has introduced Positive Value Education Programme for our S.1 students so as to building up a solid foundation in morality.

These activities are conducted throughout all levels of the school, with the participation of the all student. Through these activities, students will gain knowledge and understanding of their vocational inclinations, interests, and abilities, enabling them to set goals for their career planning early on. They will strive towards these goals throughout their secondary school years, enhancing their adaptability in society and their chances of pursuing higher education. Our school also collaborates with various organizations to provide workplace experiential activities, promoting holistic student development.
