School Management
(1)School's Major Concerns : Optimize Deep Thinking, Shine with Inquiry Spirit;
Broaden Learning Horizons, Live by Positive Values
(2) School Management Organisation : The School Sponsoring Body has deployed additional resources to employ one English Language consultant, one additional Chinese teacher, two additional English teachers, one additional NET teacher, one Religious Studies teacher and one additional social worker in order to provide our students with quality education. In addition, the school uses other fundings to employ additional teachers, assistant teachers and teaching assistants in various subjects.

(4) School Green Policy : Green ambassadors from each class collect used papers for recycling regularly. They also help to promote environmental awareness within their classes.
Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : There are four classes in each of S.1 to S.3. Of these four classes, two classes adopt English as the medium of instruction, while two classes adopt both Chinese and English as the medium of instruction. All S.1 and S.2 students use English as the medium of instructions in Integrated Science and Life and Society in order to enhance students' English proficiency. In our school, the education policy of "biliteracy and trilingualism" has long been strongly emphasized. English split-class teaching is adopted in Secondary 1 to Secondary 6 classes. Chinese and Maths split-class teaching is adopted in S.1 to S.3 classes. Bridging courses are offered for S.3 to S.4 students to help them to adapt to the change of medium of instruction in learning. For senior secondary levels, 4 classes in each of S.4 to S.6 are split into 5 classes in order to enhance teacher-student interaction and language learning.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : According to EDB's focus inspection report, our school has nurtured students' good characters and positive learning attitude through both the formal and informal curricula. Moreover, our school has provided students with various activities to encourage them to think from different perspectives, thus building up their positive views on life and values. The report also points out that the goals of our school curriculum are clear, focusing on fostering students' all-round development. The English focus inspection report by the EDB shows that our school has put a large amount of resources, especially human resources, in English Language teaching. Our school principal has been passionate about the key learning area of English Language Education. Our school attaches great importance to students' English Language learning. The School Sponsoring Body has employed an additional English consultant and Native English teachers, and English split-class teaching is implemented in all levels. The passing percentage of Chinese Language and English Language in 2023 Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination were about 97% and 94.1% which is higher than the average passing percentage of Hong Kong. There were ten subjects with passing rates higher than 90%. Furthermore, there were quite a number of subjects with the percentage of Level 4 or above higher than that of Hong Kong day school students. Improvement was found in eight subjects. The percentage of students entering the JUPAS bachelor degree programme is higher than the territory-wide level and the value-added results of four core subjects, best five subjects and several elective subjects are higher than the Hong Kong average. Our school has further utilized additional funding for group teaching in four core subjects and most of the elective subjects in Secondary 4, 5 and 6. This has substantially increased the teacher-student ratio and the interaction between teachers and students. More frequent feedbacks during lessons can be achieved so as to improve teaching effectiveness.
(3) School-based curriculum : 1. Electives: 2X. Our school offers 11 electives, Applied Learning programmes, Japanese elective and Mathematics (Extended Part Module 1) for students.
2. Curriculum highlights: The School Sponsoring Body has employed an additional English Language consultant to review the whole English curriculum. Mini-lesson study is held in English lessons in junior forms to ensure a smooth transition from junior to senior levels. Citizenship and Social Development and Liberal Studies teachers work together to develop the teaching materials for Senior Secondary curriculum during common preparation periods. Our school also offers Chinese and Mathematics split class teaching to students from S.1 to S.3. Our S.2 STEAM team teachers have joined the School-based Support Services, which are provided by the EDB to support the curriculum planning on STEAM to cater for students' learning diversity and enhance self learning. Moreover, our school has joined the Support Scheme for e-learning in schools, which allows students to use tablets for their interactive learning. A wireless network has been installed in the whole school, which facilitates learning and teaching with I.T.. For example, by using the devices, our S.1 students can access the school-based English reading materials in class and interact with their teachers, thus increasing their interest and effectiveness in learning English and raising their English Language proficiency. The school also purchases tablets for students in need to support e-learning at home through the "Community Care Fund Assistance Programme - Provision of Subsidy to Needy Primary and Secondary Students for Purchasing Mobile Computer Devices to Facilitate the Practice of e-Learning".
(4) Major Renewed Emphases in the School Curriculum : Our school has made outstanding achievements in moral and civic education, which covers comprehensive topics including endurance, respect, responsibility, national identity and Media and Information literacy etc. To act in concert with the curriculum reform, Information Technology teaching, STEAM, favorable reading atmosphere and project-based learning are set as the main domains of teaching and learning at school. The school also actively promotes e-learning to support students' home learning under the epidemic.
(5) Life Planning Education : Our school promotes career planning education at all levels. For example, all S.5 and S.6 students are provided with face-to-face individual counselling services by YMCA social workers.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : In order to expand students' learning experience outside the classroom and help them identify their personal goals in life, the school has arranged different programmes to cater for students' needs, including Experiential Learning Day, Exchange Programmes, Voluntary Service, University Visit, Professional Talk, Workplace Experience Plan, Mentorship Programme and Leadership Training Camp. Through discussions on current social issues, moral and civic education is effectively promoted. Students are groomed to establish humanity and moral integrity which are vital values to personal growth. Students from different backgrounds are therefore effectively catered for. Split classes are practised in English, Chinese and Mathematics lessons from S.1-S.3.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : Our school adopts a “whole school approach” model to implement integrated education. We establish a learning support team, members include vice-principals, SENCO, SENST, school social workers and the educational psychologist to cater for students with special educational needs. We also arrange teachers to receive integration education training to enhance their professional competence. Our school makes a flexible use of the Learning Support Grant and other school, which includes hiring teaching assistants to provide students with appropriate after-school support and social skill training, and outsourced speech therapy services for students in need. We also cater for students’ learning diversity and improve their learning outcomes through diversified teaching strategies. Our school joins the “Student Mental Health Support Scheme”, and also works closely with school-based educational psychologists to conduct regular student assessments and meetings, and invite parents to participate in individual meetings to design concrete and feasible support programs for students. Our school is committed to building an inclusive culture.
(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; organising activities to create an inclusive learning environment in the school; and hiring additional manpower and/or translation/interpretation services to facilitate the communication with parents.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for learning and assessment : Assessment for learning is for the purpose of consolidating learning, enhancing independent thinking and critical thinking skills. Hence, various forms of continuous assessment of a formative nature have been adopted to better reflect and monitor students' learning situation over time.
Home-School Co-operation and School Ethos
(1) Home-School Co-operation : School-parent cooperation is highly treasured. The PTA engages in organizing a wide range of voluntary work and actively takes part in major school functions in order to tie in with the objective of the setting up of PTA. Parents highly appreciate school effort in cultivating students' values and multi abilities. A PTA Scholarship was established for students who attained outstanding grades in conduct. Our school has also got the sponsorship from QEF to set up the Parents Resources Centre.
(2) School Ethos : Discipline and counseling work are put on equal footing in our school. To assist students to improve their academic results and exercise self-discipline, teachers are devoted to providing help and guidance to students in both pastoral and academic matters. Students are engaged enthusiastically in school affairs and activities and show a sense of belonging to our school. The teachers, students and parents of the school are enthusiastic about community service and practice the school motto of "Thou art the Light of the world".
Future Development
(1) School Development Plan : Deep Thinking Project:
Starting from 2020, our school will implement elite group teaching in Mathematics, Integrated Science, Chemistry, Biology, Physics and English from Secondary 2 to 6, in order to cultivate the deep thinking and abstract thinking abilities of the elite students.
