Learning and Teaching Plan

English is the main teaching medium in junior forms, with Putonghua being the teaching medium in Chinese lessons in S.1 and some classes in S.2 & S. 3. Senior form students can study elective subjects in English as well. To further enhance the effectiveness of English teaching, each form of S.1-S.3 is split into 5 groups according to their levels for the purpose of catering individual differences and implementation of school-based curriculum. More English lessons are allotted for senior forms. After-school tutorial lessons are arranged daily for S.6.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : To optimize our teaching, group lesson planning, lesson observations, teaching and learning evaluations are regularly practised. Funding from CEG is well utilized by introducing various learning activities to tap students’ potentials. Junior and senior form students are given Learning Progress Reports and Interim Academic Reports respectively to receive feedback on their performance at different stages of the school year.
(3) School-based curriculum : 1. Electives: 2X and 3X. Students can choose elective subjects according to their interests.
2. Curriculum highlights: We have been developing school-based curricula on Chinese Language, English Language and Mathematics to facilitate effective teaching and learning.
(4) Major Renewed Emphases in the School Curriculum : Moral education: Moral education lessons are conducted during class periods so as to expose students to various daily life and social issues, hoping to raise their awareness of what is happening in society, and to cultivate them into young people with positive values and integrity.

Intellectual education: Two new subjects, namely Mathematics Extended Part: Calculus and Statistics (M1) and Tourism and Hospitality Studies, have been added as electives for senior secondary students to choose.

Social education: Regular OLE periods on the timetable are allotted to S4 students, hoping to build up students’ confidence and develop their potential, and enhance their all-round development through various sports, arts and cultural activities.

After school remedial classes are provided on Chinese, English and Mathematics. Enhancement classes are arranged on Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Speech and Arts as well as IT.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : As for the aspect of integrated education, our school Student Support Team (SST), which is led by the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) not only gives room to the teachers concerned to attend courses on catering for diverse learning needs, but also makes use of learning-support-grant(LSG) to provide support for students who have such special needs by means of, for example, adjustments of requirements on such students’ learning, as well as extra time allowance during tests and examinations. It is hoped that on one hand students with different learning needs can all enjoy a healthy learning environment, and on the other fairness in assessment and grading is guaranteed.
