(1)School's Major Concerns :

Please refer to school website.

(2) School Management Organisation : School-based management and school-based curriculum are implemented. Priorities have been accorded to staff development and communication with parents and other organizations to nurture a learning organization culture. School Management Committee was incorporated with representatives from parents, teachers and alumni as well as lay members.
(3) Incorporated Management Committee / School Management Committee / Management Committee : In line with the Education Ordinance, an incorporated management committee was established in 2005. The committee consists of 15 members including parent manager, teacher manager and alumni manager. 4 meetings will be held annually to monitor the operation of the school.
(4) School Green Policy : We adopt the Whole School Approach to promote environmental education involving different subjects and groups, so as to cultivate good habits of teachers and students on environmental protection. Our Green Policy promotes energy conservation, environmental protection and waste reduction. Planting various types of plants on campus is another way for greening the campus.
Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : The school places great emphasis on nurturing in students the capabilities of bi-literacy and tri-lingualism. Students' proficiency will be improved through the introduction of Putonghua lessons, extensive Chinese and English reading schemes and writing weekly journals. To enhance the English learning environment of students, we conduct various extended learning activities in English such as publication of English journals in order to provide students the opportunity to learn the abilities of interview and editing. Our graduates will also assist in organizing "Exam Skills Class" to strengthen the Chinese and English oral skills of students. Morning assembly on every Thursday will be held in English so that students have the chance to practice English or Putonghua on the podium. We also carry out cross-curricular English enrichment programmes involving collaboration between English language teachers and staff from non-English language subjects areas such as Music, Computer and Home Economics. Study excursion is launched every year to offer an authentic and practical learning English environment for students. Students are also encouraged to sit for international English and Putonghua tests to attain professional qualifications which is beneficial for their study and career.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : There is an emphasis on cultivating students' multi-intelligence and comprehensive development in moral, intellectual, physical, social and aesthetic. In order to cater for the learner's diversity, self-directive and co-operation learning is widely conducted at school. Information technology and multi-media facilities have been highly developed. To enhance students' abilities in Chinese, English and Mathematics, extensive after-school supporting services are provided. Computers connecting with internet are equipped in our computer rooms, Multimedia Learning Center and Information Technology Learning Center. To maximize learning effectiveness, teaching is tailored to cater for students' abilities and needs. Information Technology and Project Based Learning are included in curriculum abreast of current development. The school places great emphasis on the establishment of students' regular learning habits. Through electronic platforms, we ensure that students keep up with the designated learning progress, so that learning is not limited to "class hours" but also includes the number of hours students spend on learning. A whole-school Chinese and English newspaper subscription programme and Extensive Reading Schemes enhance students' interests in reading.
(3) School-based curriculum : 1. Electives: 3X. Electives learning areas have 200 combinations.
2. Curriculum highlights: The school places great importance on nurturing its students personal development and confidence with technology. This is done by offering a variety of resources such as the Human Performance Laboratory which is the first of its kind in Hong Kong. This laboratory is to test human body's fitness by adopting scientific methods. Students can evaluate their health conditions by the way of doing experiments and collecting data through the facilities in the laboratory. Indeed, it helps to develop the abilities of those students who are interested in Physical Education.
(4) Major Renewed Emphases in the School Curriculum : Reading to Learn: Regular reading is encouraged through provision of fiction and non fiction reading material in the library and the classroom. Quiet reading sessions are held at the beginning of every school days. Reading activities such as Read-to Win, Meet the Author and Teacher Picks promote positive attitudes to reading.
Information Technology for Interactive Learning: The school's computer network is available as a communication tool between teachers and students. The school is currently using the intranet and internet services to develop and trail a range of effective e-learning services.
Project learning: The school promotes "project learning activities" to encourage independent learning.
Moral and Civic education: Moral and civic education is promoted throughout the school curriculum, with particular emphasis on the Junior forms CES and senior forms CS courses. A flag raising ceremony is conducted every week to enhance students' sense of national identity.
(5) Life Planning Education : Life Planning Education is a continuous and lifelong process that enables students to achieve different goals at different stages. The objectives include fostering self-awareness, personal planning, goal-setting, and the ability to reflect and revise. It also involves providing students with knowledge about various educational pathways, employment opportunities, training options, professional ethics, and workplace information. That is why we implement Funding Scheme for Youth Life Planning Activities and CLAP@JC.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : To avoid stigmatization, students are not segregated into classes finely but broadly grouped according to their academic abilities. Students are looked after through whole school approach with more attention in class. Students are supported by a well-trained Guidance and Discipline Team. Small group tutorial teaching is arranged for less academic-oriented students during and after school hours.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : Led by the Student Support Committee and Special Educational Needs Coordinator, our school has a Whole School Approach to Integrated Education. The professional support team includes three special educational needs support teachers, a school-based educational psychologist, a school-based speech therapist, three student counsellors and eight subject-based resource teachers. A range of special accommodations have been made to cater for students with diverse learning needs and to help them develop multiple intelligences, exploring their potential for various vocational pathways.
Well over half (80%) of our teaching staff (41) have completed teacher professional development in catering for students with special educational needs in basic (24), advanced (9) and thematic (8) courses. Moreover, five teachers have completed elementary and/or in-depth professional development programmes in mental health. This has facilitated our introduction of the 3-tier support model for students with special educational needs (SEN) providing specially tailored teaching strategies and special accommodation for students with persistent learning difficulties so that they can enjoy diversified learning activities and enhanced learning support.
Our school flexibly and holistically deploys various grants to provide more comprehensive support for students with SEN. This includes the Learning Support Grant, and a range of programmes including the Student Mental Health Support Scheme, a multi-professional platform project and Project Bridge all of which augment support for specific students. Together with parents' sincere support and cooperation, we have embraced an inclusive culture which addresses our students' learning difficulties and special educational needs.
(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; arranging intensive Chinese learning and teaching mode(s), e.g. pull-out learning if necessary, split-class/group learning, etc.; developing school-based Chinese Language curriculum and/or adapting learning and teaching materials; and organising activities to create an inclusive learning environment in the school.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for learning and assessment : Each academic year has two examinations and two uniform tests and also coupled with continuous assessment in terms of project-based learning and student assignments.
Home-School Co-operation and School Ethos
(1) Home-School Co-operation : The school has a strong commitment to the home-student-school partnership to support student learning and development. Parental involvement in the school life and regular parent contact are encouraged. Interest based workshops are organized to promote positive parent-student relationships.
(2) School Ethos : Students enjoy a simple and sincere environment. The school has set up other units for providing pastoral care for students. All junior form students are required to have lunch at school and a wide range of activities are organized for them after lunch in order to advance the care on students and build up a caring and loving school culture. Positive life programme and peer support workshop are organized by guidance and discipline group committee.

Through various forms of teacher professional development programs, we aim to improve the quality of teaching. Subsidies are offered to teachers to encourage self-education.
Life-wide Learning (including Five Essential Learning Experiences to be provided through Key Learning Areas, extra-curricular activities, co-curricular activities, etc.) : There are nearly 30 societies and interest clubs organizing regular meetings, activities and study visits. Joining one of the uniform groups is mandatory for S.1 and S.2 students. Participation in our extra-curricular activities is free of charge. Subsidy is available for student to join activities by other organizations and claim transportation fee.
Others : SSY Scholarship will be awarded to students who have attained high academic achievement and contributed actively to the school or community as recognition. To exploit students’ potential, students are encouraged to participate in the open or inter schools competitions, they also won in various competitions with outstanding performances in the extracurricular activities such as languages, sports, uniform groups, visual arts, technology and living that reflect their holistic development. Our students also enjoy taking part in exchange programmes which provide them an opportunity for cultural and interpersonal development, confidence building, and foster a love of learning and languages.
