    • School Characteristics
      • School Management
        • (1)School's Major Concerns 1. Nurturing students to be self-disciplined with a positive outlook through different key learning areas, moral and civic education, cross-curricula and life-wide learning experiences. 2. Building students’ learning confidence through training their self-directed learning and developing their potentials according to their learning needs and diversity. 3. Improving teachers’ planning and professional growth to build the self-reflective culture.
        • (2) School Management Organisation: Incorporated Management Committee has been established to implement school-based management. Through collective decision-making, we have set up an empowered administrative structure with clear duties. 13 administrative groups such as Academic Committee, Students’ Growth & Support Committee, Parents and Community Relations Liaison Committee have been established. The publication of 'Teacher's Handbook', 'Safety Guidelines' and 'Middle Management Guide' has built the multi-dimensional self-evaluation culture. These efforts were acknowledged by the External School Review (ESR) Team. The ESR Team pointed out the effectiveness of implementing and sustainability.
        • (3) Incorporated Management Committee / School Management Committee / Management Committee: The members of the Incorporated Management Committee include 7 Sponsoring Body Managers, 1 Independent Manager, 2 Teacher Managers, 2 Parent Managers, 1 alumna or alumnus Manager and the Principal.

The school has used energy-saving fluorescent lighting and heat-proof window sheets are also used on the campus. Apart from these, the school has also joined the project of reducing carbon emission. A ‘Green Kitchen’ has been set up in school so that lunch will be served on-site. We have installed a Food Waste Composter at school. The composter collects the food waste which has unique properties as a raw compost agent. The food waste is then decomposed to be organic fertilizer. This will surely improve our environment. Parents can receive school notices online or via Apps. Electronic notices will reduce the amount of paper consumption. Environmental Protection Prefects in each class are responsible for raising students’ environmental awareness.

To enhance our students’ English proficiency, we have 2 native English-speaking teachers to create a conducive environment for English enhancement.
        • (2) Learning and Teaching Strategies: 1. To strengthen cooperative learning, teachers hold group discussions and presentations and give feedback. 2.

A social worker and a teaching assistant are recruited to help students with special needs. Implement a 'Buddy Counselling Scheme': senior form students will read aloud with students who have learning difficulties in decoding words. Since 2003-04, 218 students have been successfully recruited in ‘The Gifted Student Training Scheme’ in different subject areas.
        • (2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education: The school is committed to implementing integrated education with a whole school approach. The school arranges a SEN coordinator as the SEN team leader to implement integrated education. The SEN coordinator holds regular meetings with teachers to make an appropriate support plan for students with Special Education Needs and make various adjustments to help students develop their multiple intelligence. In order to screen SEN students quickly to offer the earliest support, the school arranges different subject teachers to attend EDB training for students' learning diversity strategically and systematically. We also invite the EDB Educational Psychologist and social workers to give talks and information to staff in order to raise teachers' professionalism. The school also holds talks or workshops for parents to enhance their understanding in integrated education. The school uses resources flexibly by employing a social worker, a supporting teacher and a teaching assistant to support students' learning diversity. With the help of services like emotion management, speech therapy, integrated activities, tutorials and so on, we target at students' different needs to help them with a better multiple development so that they have a better life planning and career preparation.

Teachers hold remedial and enhancement classes based on the students’ performance data.
      • Home-school Co-operation and School Ethos
        • (1) Home-School Co-operation: Parent-Teacher Association consists of two sub–committees, namely the senior and junior form sub-committees, where members are from senior and junior forms’ parents. The committee members hold meetings and organize activities regularly in order to facilitate the cooperation among parents, teachers, the school and community. So, parent and school education can be fostered. Parents elect representatives to be a member of Incorporated Management Committee. PTA appoints parent representatives to be members of 'Monitoring Committee on Trading Operations'. The committee is to supervise lunch, coach, tuck shop service providers, bookstore and school uniform companies. PTA also holds seminars and activities to promote parent education.

Well-behaved students can be the role-models for their fellow schoolmates. 3. There are moral education and life education lessons in which discussions on campus life, news and current affairs, are held.
