(4) School Green Policy : Please refer to http://www.cymcass.edu.hk
Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy : The medium of instructions for junior students is mainly in English so as to enhance their English efficacy. Senior students can select the medium of instructions for their elective subjects in order that they can fully grasp the subject knowledge and achieve the best grades. An International Examination Committee is set up for coordinating International English assessment to promote English learning.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies : Our school advocates “CHING-CHUNG G21 Empowerment Learning”. In order to provide appropriate kits and strategies to facilitate empowerment learning, we are going to further develop diversified teaching methodology on a Google-based interactive e-learning platform which allows students to learn beyond the limits of time and space. Teachers would be able to tailor-make diversified teaching materials on this platform to better cater for individual students' needs. Materials like tutorial videos, lesson broadcast, interactive surveys, live-broadcast of activities, lesson notes, and assessments will all be made available on the platform to facilitate students' learning. Students can make full use of the materials for lesson preparation and consolidation. They would also be able to discuss with their peers and teachers, ask each other questions, do exercises and assignments, take assessments, and receive timely feedback inside and outside classrooms. Moreover, students are allocated into classes according to mixed abilities so as to avoid labeling effects. However, for the subjects of Chinese Language, English Language and Mathematics, students are allocated into different small groups according to their abilities to cater for their individual needs.
(3) School-based curriculum : 1. Electives: 3X. We offer more than 300 subject combinations to suit students' individual interests and ability to prepare them for their future.
2. Curriculum highlights: We provide various activities to promote students' sense of responsibility, respect and care for others, as well as the ability to differentiate right from wrong. The activities are : DEAR Time (Drop Everything And Read), morning assemblies, lunch time activities, weekly assemblies, pastoral time, co-curricular activities and other whole-person activities.
Moreover, in order to increase learning efficacy, we design school-based curricula for Business Studies, Chinese History, Christian Education, Information and Communication Technology, STEM in junior forms.
(4) Major Renewed Emphases in the School Curriculum : Through DEAR TIME reading, morning assemblies, lunch time activities, Religious Education, pastoral time and local and overseas study trips, we instill moral and civic education in students.
We develop students' learning habits through daily editorial reading in the morning, DEAR time and other reading programmes.
With the support of our school’s wireless network system, the use of Chromebook, Google applications and other e-learning platforms enable our students to develop good self-learning habits.
(5) Life Planning Education : We collaborate with Chinese YMCA of Hong Kong (Life Planning Section) to offer our school-based life planning programme, which aims at fostering students' self-understanding, personal planning and goal setting abilities. Through various career exploration opportunities, including workplace / tertiary institute visits, career talks, mock interview workshops, career / personality tests, and summer internship programmes, students are equipped with the necessary knowledge, skills and attitude to make well-informed and wise choices in accordance with their own interests, abilities and orientations.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity : In order to cater for individual needs, students are allocated into different small groups according to their abilities for the subjects of Chinese Language, English Language and Mathematics. For senior forms, we offer more than 300 subject combinations to suit students’ individual interests and ability to prepare them to make the best choice for their future. We organize after-school courses to cater for students’ different learning needs and their growth.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education : The school's Inclusive Education Committee consists of the SENCO, the SEN-teachers, and social workers. We provide support and training to teachers and amend appropriate courses and assessments for students with special educational needs (including local and NCS students) so that students with different needs can learn and grow with our timely and appropriate care. We communicate with parents of students with special educational needs on a regular basis, listen to parents' opinions and report about students' learning progress. In addition, we use the Learning Support Grant and the Grant for Supporting Non-Chinese Speaking Students with Special Educational Needs to invite external professionals or teams to provide support and counseling services for students in need such as Chinese and English reading and writing training courses, concentration training groups, social training group and support group for NCS students with special educational needs, etc.
(3) Education Support for Non-Chinese Speaking (NCS) Students : Our school provides additional support for NCS students to facilitate their learning of 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; and organising activities to create an inclusive learning environment in the school. Our school will provide instruction and coordination for NCS students to enroll various courses and participate in public examinations.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for learning and assessment : In the assessment of teaching and learning, we put emphasis on the application of Assessment for Learning to enhance the effectiveness of students' learning. Subject teachers adjust their method of assessment according to students’ ability for timely and appropriate feedback. We therefore conduct various kinds of formative assessments to evaluate students' progress in order to offer more incentive for them to learn actively and effectively. In practice, teachers of junior forms adjust the progress to suit students' ability in order that they can learn towards an objective.
(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. Application can be submitted at anytime and the subsidy can be offered up to a full year of the school fee remission.
- 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 : We have set up the Parents' Resources Centre in order to strengthen the bond and collaboration between parents and the school. In addition, the Home-School Collaboration Committee encourages parents to take part in various activities.
(2) School Ethos : We follow and practise our school motto “Glorify God and Love Others”. We encourage our students to cultivate a well-balanced character based upon the Bible to meet the challenges of the ever-changing world. In such harmonious learning atmosphere, students can truly develop a character of self-respect as well as respect for God and others.
