      • School's Major Concerns Enhancing academic performance by improving teaching effectiveness and motivation.
      • Learning & Teaching Strategies 1. The school promotes students' self-directed learning. Through different subjects, cross subject curriculum and a diverse range of teaching strategies, students' potentials are highly promoted. The teaching strategies include thinking tools, reading across the curriculum, STEM education, E-learning, cooperative learning, life-wide learning, project learning and gifted education. 2. Assessment Quality-assurance Platform (AQP) is a powerful tool to find out problematic items or papers so that teachers can identify students' strengths and weaknesses that provide appropriate teaching and learning support. 3. The well-designed teaching strategy "Three High" (High Participation, High Interaction and High enjoyment) are used in teaching to promote students' learning interest.
      • Development of Key Tasks 1. Reading to Learn: The school arranges lessons in collaboration with the school library, reading award schemes, reading across the curriculum, Reading Aunt/Uncle for P.1 students, Reading Ambassadors, etc. 2. IT: The well-equipped instructional multimedia such as interactive whiteboards, tablets and IT software are used both in classrooms and outside classroom. 3. The school arranges activities to equip students with the project learning skills: Cross-curriculum life-wide learning activities for P.1-P.6. STEM education is instilled in the topics of General Studies and project learning. 4. Moral and Civic Education: Under the vision of Catholic Schools, the school provides comprehensive student guidance services to nurture students with the 5 core values of Catholic Education. The school fosters students to develop good personality and positive attitude towards life through whole-person education, personal growth education, Catholic Social Ethics (National Condition) and non-formal curriculum.
      • Development of Generic Skills The formal curriculum and life-wide learning help students develop different generic skills. Teachers make good use of different teaching strategies and learning activities to develop students' generic skills such as communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity, etc. The school has been deploying strategies such as cooperative learning, self-learning packages, rewarding scheme and E-learning platform to build up students' self-directed learning.

      • Whole School Approach to Integrated Education Use learning support grant, enhanced speech therapy grant, school-based education psychologists, district-based plans, etc., and coordinate with all-round student guidance activities to provide teaching and assessment adjustments, counseling groups, social training, speech therapy and individualized learning plans for students with special educational needs.

      • Curriculum Tailoring and Adaptation Special arrangements and adjustments on homework and assessments are made for students with special educational needs.
      • Home-School Co-operation Through conducting parents workshops and setting up a big parents' network, our school maintains close relationship with the parents. Our parent volunteers not only help out at lunch time but also offer much help in reading and lunchtime activities.
      • School Ethos We help pupils set up positive and active attitude through regular, irregular and hidden curriculum, in addition to different activities and Whole Person Development. We promote the five core values of Catholic Education and Catholic Social Ethics (National Conditions) so as to inspire pupils' body, heart and spirit. We help pupils cope with predicament and difficulties, seek for personal life goal through self-empowerment and develop psychological quality. We hope all these can help pupils build up a foundation for whole person development and learning so as to get the best life.
      • School Development Plan In teaching and learning, we would like to increase pupils' self-learning skills and learning motivation, through different strategies, such as setting individual learning programme, preview and note-taking explorations. Besides, based on the assessment data, teachers give appropriate feedback to the pupils so as to promote their learning. Our school would like to encourage pupils more hard-working through different parents' education and rewarding scheme. In order to let the stakeholders understand the core values of Catholic Education, we permeate them in different learning areas and activities, while promote Catholic Social Ethic (National Conditions) curriculum at the same time.
