Main Features
  1. Highlights of English Language Policy
  • All English classes are split into groups in order to cater for learner diversity.
  • English is adopted as the medium of instruction to teach Mathematics in all classes and Science in elite classes in junior forms to maximize students’ opportunities in English learning, paving the way for better transition in senior forms.
  • English extended learning activities are offered by various subjects in junior forms to enable students to be exposed to English in all areas.
  • Senior science subjects are taught in English.
  • A NET teacher is hired to create an English environment.
  • Local and overseas English immersion programs are organized during summer vacations.
 
  1. Self-regulated learning
  • Self-regulated learning (SRL) is adopted as a mode of learning.  Students are no longer passive recipients but proactive learners.  Ways to raise their motivation and meta-cognitive strategies are taught in order to enhance their learning effectiveness.  (For details, please refer to leaflets about Self-regulated learning)
  • Chinese Language and Science join the Quality School Improvement Project launched by the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK).  With the support of CUHK, better curriculum contents are designed to raise the effectiveness of learning and teaching.
 
  1. Spiritual and Nurturing of Virtues
  • In order to help students to make responsible and ethical choices, Spiritual and Moral Education is integrated into the S1 to S6 curriculum.  Through this, students learn about the guidance of the Gospel and correct values and attitudes.
  • Life Education is offered in S1 to S3 to cultivate students’ positive attitudes in daily life and hence to have a balanced development in the moral, spiritual, social, cognitive, sexual and emotional aspects.
