The members of the Management Committee have a lot of experience in management, leading the school to develop in an appropriate direction. The internal management is executed under the leadership of the principal. The principal guides the development of different panels and enhances teamwork and collaboration. There are many committees and sub-committees formed by the school to look into matters like subject teaching, disciplinary and guidance, curriculum, extra-curricular activities, civic education, environmental education, IT, school affairs and home-school co-operation.

      • School's Major Concerns Advocating self-confidence education and promoting independent learning.
      • Learning & Teaching Strategies School-based curriculum, co-planning for teachers and peer class observation is practiced among different subjects to improve teaching quality. Nurturing students' talents, developing gifted education and self-confidence education are our goals. Integrated language policy with reading, writing and speaking is adopted in the school. Each subject will strengthen students' skills in use of knowledge and learning strategies. In addition, there will be subject visits, seminars, project work and extra-curricular activities.
      • Development of Key Tasks There are reading and read aloud lessons each week. In addition to the Reading Reward Programme, reading is also introduced into language subjects to teach students reading and language appreciation skills. The implementation of the KTS TV and computer lessons further increase students' self-learning ability and use of technology. We aim at minimizing individual learning differences. In addition, the school has set up Moral Education, Global Citizens Group and the flag team.
      • Development of Generic Skills A student resource library and a school-based e-learning platform have been set up to encourage independent learning.
      • Whole School Approach to Cater for Student Diversity Study circles are set up among all subjects to promote a culture of self-learning.

We also have in place prefects, student helpers and volunteer ambassadors to provide opportunities for students to utilize their diverse talents. We also offer diversified gifted training courses, such as the debate team, music groups, sports team, subject societies and KTS ambassadors.
      • Whole School Approach to Integrated Education Special needs group, after-school remedial classes and training courses for gifted students and students peer tutoring program have been set up to assist students whose potentials have not been fully fulfilled.
      • Curriculum Tailoring and Adaptation Elements of gifted education or STEM education have been added to all subjects. Individual learning plans, tailor-made courses and assessment adaptations are provided for those who have special education needs.
      • Home-School Co-operation The Headmistress's messages, monthly and class messages, and intra-school e-mails are sent to strengthen the communication between parents and the school. The PTA has also been established to promote home-school collaboration and student education. In addition, the parent volunteering and reading-accompaniment programmes, monitoring of school lunches and school bus services, together with regular seminars and workshops for parents, help promote parental education. All this ensures efficient use of resources and allows students to grow in a caring environment.
