Starting from the current year, curriculum reform is introduced in our English subject so that the curriculum content will shift towards international level subsequently. Elements of TOEFL Junior is incorporated in our Junior Forms curriculum.

We organise small-group classes, streaming classes, after-school learning programmes, summer classes and gifted education courses for our students with the collaboration of external professional organisations.

(2) School Ethos : We aim to foster our students to have sound moral values and to be socially responsible. We adopt the whole-school approach to discipline and guidance to help students develop confidence and build character. Two form teachers take care of each class and the Form-teacher periods enhance the support to students’ growth and communication with individual students. Our teachers design and implement appropriate guidance and discipline activities to instil positive values and to promote respect among students with a simple and genuine school ethos regarding students’ needs.
Assembly, religious studies and value education in different subjects help to uphold students’ sense of value. Our students are generally disciplined, well-behaved and virtuous. They have a strong sense of belonging to the school and enjoy school life. They maintain a harmonious relationship with the peers and show respect for the teachers.
