School Management
(1)School's Major Concerns : Four main values are respect, responsibility, perseverance and appreciation.
(2) School Management Organisation : The HKMA David Li Kwok Po College started its operations in September 2000. It is the second school operated by the Hong Kong Management Association, an organization established over six decades ago to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of management in Hong Kong. The College is operated under the Direct Subsidy Scheme of the Education Bureau.

(4) School Green Policy : To develop in all staff and students good habits for environmental protection and recognition of the sustainable development of our society and mankind through a whole school and interdisciplinary approach.
Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : As an EMI school, all school subjects are taught in English, except Chinese Language and Chinese History, which are taught in Putonghua and Cantonese. French, as a substitute for Chinese, is intended for our non-Chinese speaking students. Our DSS status has allowed us to recruit qualified and dedicated teachers from all over Hong Kong and the international community, e.g., Australia, China, France, India, the UK and Canada and other countries. We have maintained a ratio where 15% of our teaching staff have been recruited outside of Hong Kong. As part of our effort to build a multi-cultural, multi-lingual environment, we have also a number of students from Hong Kong's non-Chinese community. This helps to expose our students to a wide range of opinions, traditions and cultural practices.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : As a DSS school receiving Government subsidies, the school is able to set its own curriculum in Junior Forms, though is obligated to follow the examination system mandated by the Education Bureau. The College aims to offer an academic programme that:
1. Caters for students' diversity in the learning of English, Chinese and Mathematics;
2. Allows for flexibility in classroom organisation, curriculum and instruction to meet the different needs of students;
3. Provides a learning environment that promotes student learning and brings to students a sense of achievement;
4. Provides subject options for students to choose at senior secondary levels.
(3) School-based curriculum : 1. Electives: 2X, 3X and 4X. Students in S.4 - S.6 are required to study four core subjects and two/three elective subjects. Additionally, they can choose to study Music, Physical Education, French and Mathematics Extended Part.
2. Curriculum highlights: To help extend students' talents, they are encouraged to join a diverse range of enrichment programmes covering English, Chinese, Mathematics, Science and so on. Similarly, for those students who may need more individual attention, the College offers after-school tutorial help from teachers in the key areas of English, Mathematics, Chinese, Integrated Humanities and Integrated Science.
(4) Major Renewed Emphases in the School Curriculum : - To promoting Enquiry Learning.
- To enhance students' learning skills.
- To further develop students' critical thinking, problem-solving skills and creativity.
- To further enrich students' learning experience beyond formal curriculum.
- To promote the well-being of students and enable them to flourish through positive education.
- To enable students to identify their strengths and develop Growth Mindset and positive attitude for their learning and personal growth.
(5) Life Planning Education : - To provide junior form students with Career Planning booklets to enhance their reflection on life planning.
- Help students to understand the qualities, attitude and characters employers look for in young employees through sharing of experience and real-life cases by business professionals or alumni.
- Arrange opportunities for students to gain experience from real workplace through job shadowing and summer intern.
- Arrange company visits or talks to students to understand more of their careers options.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : In the Junior Forms, different curriculum sets are designed to cater for the diverse needs of students in learning English, Chinese and Mathematics. A smaller class size in learning support groups may be adopted for those lower achievers, which aims to better cater for specific needs. There are variations in the curriculum content and teaching strategies of the different curriculum sets to accommodate different abilities, skills, learning paces and styles of students.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : A team focusing on catering for both Chinese and non-Chinese students with special educational needs is set up in the College, which arranges the adjustment in teaching and assessment, some counseling and social training workshops.
(3) Education Support for Non-Chinese Speaking (NCS) Students : Our school provides additional support for NCS students to facilitate their 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. Small groups, culture experiential learning programmes, scenario simulation, role-play and group presentation are adopted in lessons. The College also encourages students to engage in self-learning via library and online e-learning resources.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for learning and assessment : In measuring student performance, the College uses two major modes of assessment: continuous assessment and end of term examinations. Continuous assessment includes some of the following areas: homework; class work or laboratory activities; effort, attitude and participation; class tests and quizzes; oral competence (speaking), reading comprehension, listening comprehension, written compositions and project work. The First Term Examination and the Final Examination will take place in January and June for S.1-S.5. There is only one examination for S.6.
(5) Fee Remission : Our school offers full school fee remission or 1/2 school fee remission. Needy students, including those from families receiving the Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA) and students receiving financial assistance provided by the Student Financial Assistance Agency (SFAA) could apply for fee remission.
- Newly admitted students could apply for the school fee remission before 2 month(s) of commencement of the new school year. Application results will be announced within 2 month(s) after submission of applications. Please refer to the school's website.
- Please visit the web-link in our school’s website for details of school fee remission scheme, including the family income limits.
Home-School Co-operation and School Ethos
(1) Home-School Co-operation : Our College's PTA was set up in 2001, which acts as a communication channel between the College and parents. Other than meeting with school representatives regularly, the PTA will organize different kinds of activities, such as tea gatherings and seminars for our parents. Parents can also make use of the Parents' Day, Parents' Information Night and other school activities to know more about our College and teachers, as well as discuss about their children's learning.
(2) School Ethos : We believe that education should be based on care. The implementation of a differentiated curriculum within the junior forms is an example of the care we provide. We also practice a dual class teacher system. Being the closest in contact with our students, class teachers are expected to provide the first level of pastoral care to individual students and to liaise with their parents. The College has a strong and well developed Guidance and Counseling Team, which design programmes to address issues, such as personal growth, during Class Teacher Periods. In addition, the College employs an experienced School Counselor, together with two school social workers, to provide assistance to those individuals in need.
Future Development
(1) School Development Plan : This year, the College will follow the two major whole school concerns enshrined in our 3-year school development plan. The first major concern aims at further enhancing students' learning capacity for lifelong learning. It includes promoting Enquiry Learning, enhancing students' learning skills, further developing students' critical thinking, problem-solving skills and creativity, and further enriching students' learning experience beyond formal curriculum.

The second major concern focuses upon promoting the well-being of students and enabling them to flourish through positive education. This involves not only strengthening students' physical, mental and social well-being, but also enabling students to identify their strengths and develop Growth Mindset and positive attitude for their learning and personal growth.
(2) Teacher Professional Training and Development : (1) Professional Development Team:
The school has a Professional Development Team which organizes staff development activities every year.
(2) School Support to the Staff:
The school organizes Professional Development Days, Teacher Peer Support Scheme, Financial Support for Continuous professional development, and Teacher Peer Lesson Observation etc.
Life-wide Learning (including Five Essential Learning Experiences to be provided through Key Learning Areas, extra-curricular activities, co-curricular activities, etc.) : We offer over 40 ECAs, including:
1. Sports: Archery, Orienteering, Newly Emerged Sports, Rope Skipping, Running, etc.

We are also happy to provide ample opportunities for students to be involved in the organisation of many major school activities, such as our own Campus TV Station, festive celebrations and all kinds of school-based competitions. Students who show further interest in sports are able to represent the College in a range of team sports. Opportunities are provided for students from S.1 to S.6 to join community service programmes. Students are not simply learning how to show their care for those in need, they are also acquiring new skills and knowledge by reaching out to different sectors of society, taking up new responsibilities and working with different organisations. To strengthen the all-rounded education for the total development of our students and to develop our students’ self-esteem, the College’s have launched the “Experiential Learning in Expeditions (ELITE) Programme” in the year of 2010-11. Each junior Form student is recommended to join at least ONE of the overseas study tours to either Xian, Quanzhou/ Hakka and Singapore/ Malaysia. These tours will provide opportunities where students can practice their Putonghua and English in native speaking environments. Also, these will provide meaningful context to the class-based curricula of different subjects. We hope that this programme will strengthen students’ ability to be independent and to enhance their self-confidence and resilience.
Others : Scholarships
As part of the effort to show recognition for outstanding S1 students, a maximum of two scholarships will be offered to S1 entrants for the coming year. Each scholarship holder will be granted a six-year full school fee subsidy. Continuation of the scholarship is subject to the students’ satisfactory academic performance during his/her period of study. There are also a number of other scholarships given to outstanding students at the end of each academic year such as Hong Kong Jockey Club Scholarships, Parent-Teacher Association Scholarships, Scholarships for outstanding performance in the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination and Scholarships for excellent performance in subjects.
Other than academic areas, we will award scholarships to those who have outstanding performance in sports, music, visual arts, community service and leadership. We also have the Jessie Leung Scholarship, which aims to encourage students to demonstrate unselfishness in serving the community, in helping and caring for others and in supporting family members.

Awards
The College’s outstanding English Debating Team was awarded championships in various competitions over the years. Besides, students have impressive achievements in Mathematics Olympiad, STEAM competitions, visual arts and different kinds of inter-school sports and music competitions.

Study Tours
To broaden students’ horizons and equip them with a global perspective so that they can adapt to the dynamic society, the College encourages students to participate in cross-cultural activities. Overseas study tours are organized each year during holidays and school breaks. To date, our students have participated in various linguistic, sustainable development and cultural immersion programmes held in different countries, including the United Kingdom, the United States, France, Germany, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan and Vietnam, as well as several important world heritage cities in the Mainland.

Conclusion
We have been able to build a tradition of recognizing individual merits, instilling self-discipline and fostering a global outlook in our students. We have created an environment in which our students build close friendships amongst themselves and have a good relationship with their teachers. Our students also have a strong sense of belonging to the College with many being willing to contribute their time and effort to school functions outside of the regular school hours.
