The 'Easy Start, Regulated Input, Frequent Practice, Instant Feedback' assessment mode is adopted in the S1-3 empowering them to enjoy a greater sense of achievement. Topped with mobile learning strategy, lessons have become interactive and engaging, students’ learning effectiveness can then be enhanced as well. Besides, promoting “STEM” education is another objective to provide more learning activities for students. They can combine the knowledge gained and students’ creativity can be boosted through application, investigation, collaboration and problem-solving skills. Motivated and dedicated students are appreciated with certificates and scholarships in various award schemes.

Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : Our school adopts the policy of having elite classes. In Chinese, English and Mathematics, students are put in small groups according to their abilities. Remedial classes and enhancement courses are organized after school and during holidays to raise students’ academic performance. Based on students’ abilities and needs, school-based teaching schedule and homework policy are laid down in all subjects. Besides, “After Class Enhancement Plan” and “Homework Tutorial Classes” are implemented to support students with different learning abilities. Centralized after school classes are compulsory for senior form students. The academically more able senior form students are recommended to join different schemes such as the "Springboard To University" to boost a higher number of students with university offers. Furthermore, the Task Force has been established to support the new immigrants and the non-Chinese speaking groups to let them adapt to the new school life.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : The Integration Support Team is responsible for devising and organizing various support services and activities to build a caring environment for this group of students. Through active participation, their self-confidence will be enhanced and as a result, expanding their social circle. The task force is headed by the SENCO, supported by a team of professionals, which includes two SEN support teachers and an assistant Student Development officer, a school based Speech Therapist and counselor assistants. The Whole-school approach allows us to devise policies and strategies to meet the individual needs of the students. Early identification of the students’ needs, which includes collecting information from S.1 students, screening of suspected cases, and referrals to specialists, such as education psychologist, or speech therapist, provides appropriate and timely follow up measures to the needy students. In the area of assessments and examinations, these students can enjoy adjustments and time allowance in internal quizzes as well as in public examinations. In addition, the team makes flexible use of the Learning Support Grants to tender out services when organizing social training groups, such as expressive art therapy groups, homework counseling service, support groups for S.1 and board games. With these fun and engaging activities, these students can easily adapt to the school environment, enjoying the support from peers and ultimately boost their self-confidence.
(3) Education Support for Non-Chinese Speaking (NCS) Students : Our school provides additional support for NCS students to facilitate their learning of Chinese: providing after-school support programmes in learning Chinese; appointing additional teacher(s)/teaching assistant(s) to support NCS students’ learning of Chinese; and organising activities to create an inclusive learning environment in the school.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for learning and assessment : Students' learning progress is monitored through two examinations, one uniform test and continuous assessments. The format and weighting vary in different subjects. The % of continuous assessment marks of S.1 is set at 50%. This aims to encourage students to take a more active role in daily classroom activities. This policy emphasizes the importance of classwork and homework, relieving the pressure of examinations and increasing students' confidence.
Home-School Co-operation and School Ethos
(1) Home-School Co-operation : We emphasize collaboration between home and school, and parents are very supportive and cooperate with the school's policies. The Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) establishes a Reading Scholarship to cultivate students' interest in reading. The PTA strives to implement various activities, including educational seminars for parents, sharing sessions with parents, Respect Teachers Campaign, and annual general meeting, etc. while parent volunteers actively participate in assisting with the PTA affairs as well. The Principal regularly meets with parents to strengthen the partnership between the school and parents. Besides, we are also actively involved in participating in activities organized by FPTA of Tusen Wan in order to maintain close ties with the community.
(2) School Ethos : The school embraces the philosophy of simplicity and humility, advocating the integration of discipline and compassion. Character building, moral education and self discipline top the priority in the school practices and are realized through holistic programmes on counseling, personal growth and careers planning such as "Peer Counseling Scheme" and "Respect to Life and Joyful Partnership", “Adventure Training Scheme”, “Positive Education”, “Duel Form Teachers” “Homework Support”. The "Whole School Campus Activity Day", aiming to foster a home-like feeling, not only enhances teacher-student relationships, builds a sense of belonging, but also develops their potential. "Self-directed Learning" has been launched in junior forms to promote effective learning habits. A "Goal Management Initiative", integrated with their careers planning and job tasting programme, helps students establish their own goals, equip themselves for future challenges. The "Leadership Training Programmes" for senior and junior forms develop leadership potentials in our future community elites. Students are encouraged to participate in various territory-wide competitions, to realize their potentials and experience success. The “Community Experiences Scheme” widens their horizons, arouses their concerns to the society and develops their empathy to the needy.
