Beside the installation of water dispensers, implementation of e-learning as well as utilization of electronic notifications, the school has participated in the "Green School" project, establishing a solar photovoltaic system to promote energy conservation. With the support of the QEF, an organic garden was set up to promote organic farming and a green lifestyle. Furthermore, the school participated in the "Sustainable Development School Award Scheme" and the "Jockey Club BEAM Plus in Schools Project" to promote sustainable development and reduce the school's carbon emissions.
Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : The school's policy on the medium of instruction (MOI) is formulated on the basis of students' abilities, needs and learning effectiveness. In response to this, our teaching staff has completed relevant professional training courses aimed at strengthening language and learning across the curriculum. At present, apart from the English Language, Mathematics, Science (including Biology, Chemistry, Physics), the mother tongue (Chinese) is extensively used in the junior secondary curriculum, aided with English. English is adopted to be the MOI in Mathematics, Science (including Biology, Chemistry, Physics) in some classes to increase students' language exposure and opportunity to use English, thus enhancing the language learning environment and boosting students' confidence. In the senior secondary curriculum, more subjects are taught in English, thus enabling students to choose the MOI that suits them most. The school attaches great importance to training students to be bi-literate and tri-lingual. Part of the English classes of all forms are run in small groups, with the assistance of the Native-speaking English Teacher. In the senior secondary classes, grouping according to abilities and reduction in class size have been adopted to improve the quality of teaching and learning of both English and Chinese languages. Besides, Putonghua is also taught in small groups in S.1.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : Spiritual, moral, intellectual, physical, social and aesthetic education forms the basis for our school's curriculum design, with a view to nurturing students to attain all-round development. By offering students a wide range of co-curricular activities, their potential is developed and a spirit of cooperation and service is fostered among them. The school values students' moral development and civic education, and responds positively to the curriculum reform. Apart from catering to students' needs, the school curriculum also meets current social demands. Much emphasis is put on religious and moral education, and affective education as well, which helps students in their character development. Students' participation and performance in extra-curricular activities are also valued. As our school attaches great importance to completion of homework on time, a Homework Policy Enforcement Team is set up to ensure timely intervention and follow-up action with students for late submission of homework. Our school also arranges a 15-minute homeroom period each day to promote positive learning attitudes and habits among students. Extensive reading programmes are launched by the two language subjects, aiming at improving students' language standard. Besides, information technology has been widely used in the school in both learning and teaching activities. In recent years, much emphasis has been put on mobile e-learning strategies to enhance the effectiveness of learning and teaching.
(3) School-based curriculum : 1. Electives: 2X and 3X. Our school adopts the Student Option Programme (SOP) provided by EDB to assign elective subjects to S.4 students so as to maximise the satisfaction rate of students’ choices and to meet students’ needs.
2. Curriculum highlights: In order to facilitate learning and teaching, teacher-student ratio has been reduced in both junior and senior forms. Project-based learning incorporating elements of STEM Education is implemented with an aim to boosting students’ creativity and enhancing their problem-solving skills. Drama teaching has been introduced in S.4 English curriculum to boost students’ confidence and arouse their interest in learning English. The school also provides students with more opportunities to be exposed to international English language tests. Various off-campus learning activities including visits, excursions, voluntary work, study tours are organized to expose students to learning opportunities in contexts outside the classroom and to enrich their learning experience.
(4) Major Renewed Emphases in the School Curriculum : Please refer to the previous paragraph on Learning & Teaching strategies.
(5) Life Planning Education : Life planning plays a significant role at school in fostering students’ self-understanding, personal planning, goal setting, reflective thinking and articulation to progressive pathways. Life planning education is implemented in all forms, through which students are equipped with the knowledge, skills and attitude to make wise choices in accordance with their interests, abilities and orientations as well as connecting their career or academic aspirations with whole-person development and life-long learning. Individual and group career counselling is provided for Forms 3, 5 and 6 students so as to help them make informed choices and to pursue their career goals. Through various career-related activities, students can better understand their career orientations, know about the actual operation of different enterprises and learn the correct work attitude. Our school has taken part in CLAP for Youth@JC, Career and Life Adventure Planning Programme for Youth (Phase 2) to enhance our career and life planning education and career guidance.

A Student Support Team, headed by the SEN Coordinator and comprised of SEN teachers specialised in different subjects as well as counsellors, has been set up to support students with diverse learning abilities and needs. Also, activities promoting an inclusive culture at school are held regularly.

Life-wide Learning (including Five Essential Learning Experiences to be provided through Key Learning Areas, extra-curricular activities, co-curricular activities, etc.) : The Student Union has been established since 1994. Its executive committee is elected annually by all students and teachers, each casting one vote only. Students are affiliated to three different houses. Besides, there are about 30 clubs and interest groups, which fall into four categories, namely religious/ services, academic interest, cultural and sports categories. The school puts a great emphasis on extra-curricular activities, and systematically records, evaluates and reports students' participation and performance. In 2022, the school launched the ‘One-Student-One-Service’ and ‘One-Student-One-Team’ schemes to help students enrich their learning experience. To make good use of the resources of the Life-wide Learning Grant, experiential learning activities are conducted to widen students’ horizons and achieve the aims of whole-person development. The school utilises the grant in organising and subsidising students in various activities, including programmes promoting STEM Education, physical and cultural education, workshops developing multiple intelligence, local excursions and overseas exchange tours.
Others : The Alumni Association aspires to the building of a harmonious community through networking with schools and members of the Southern District. It is dedicated to promoting exchanges and cooperation between the school and the community. With a view to contributing to the continuous growth of their alma mater, the Alumni started “The Young Scientists Programme” in 2017 to nurture students in the field of scientific research. Starting from 2018, “The Gifted and Talented Youth Pilot Programme” has also been carried out to widen students’ horizons through various English activities.
