      • School's Major Concerns 1. Create a positive thinking atmosphere at school. 2. Let pupils have hope for learning. 3. Build a campus of love, appreciation and thankfulness.
      • Learning & Teaching Strategies Various learning activities are designed to promote pupils' learning motivation, so that their independent learning and multi-angle thinking abilities can be developed. For Chinese Language, pupils learn to speak and write by reading. For English Language, pupils build up their language proficiency through reading high frequency words, thematic vocabulary, phonics, high quality authentic reading materials, and graphic organizers. For Maths, teachers plan the lessons based on the Theory of Mathematising. Pupils learn Maths through participation in the "re-invention" process and express their views with Mathematical languages. For G.S., pupils are encouraged to explore the subject with teachers' guidance. Pupils' critical thinking skills are developed through discussion of news in GS lessons. Moreover, E-boards, iPads and online learning platforms are used to extend pupils' learning.
      • Development of Key Tasks The Discipline and Counselling teams work together to build up pupils' Moral and Civic Education at school. We have designed a 'Personal Growth' lesson every Friday for building up pupils' morality and value. The focus of Growth Lesson, Environmental Protection and Civic Education are incorporated into various subjects. Pupils' self-discipline is enhanced through bi-weekly assembly and class nurturing activities.
      • Development of Generic Skills We develop students' generic skills through the Exploration Week and Life-wide Learning Activities. Each subject also helps develop pupils' generic skills within its syllabus, so that different generic skills will be developed in each level.
      • Whole School Approach to Cater for Student Diversity We cater for students' diverse learning needs through class structure, teaching designs, lesson activities, homework and assessments. In addition, we have sourced funds from new government assistance scheme to provide sufficient support to cater for pupils' special education needs, aiming at enabling them to have a fair chance to learning and be integrated in campus life.
      • Whole School Approach to Integrated Education Our school follows the Whole School Approach to Integrated Education. Through the Learning Support Grant, we provide suitable support services to suit the differentiated needs of SEN pupils. For example, pupils with ASD receive social skills training, while pupils with ADHD, SpLD receive skills training and assessment accommodations. In addition, pupils with ALA (Academically Low Achievers) attend after-school remedial learning classes. With the Enhanced Speech Therapy Grant, we provide school-based speech therapy services to pupils identified with speech and language impairment, such as individual speech training, activities and workshops for pupils, parents and training.
      • Education Support for Non-Chinese Speaking(NCS) Students Our school provides additional support for NCS students to facilitate their learning of Chinese: arranging intensive Chinese learning and teaching mode(s), e.g. pull-out learning if necessary, split-class/group learning, etc.; and organising cultural integration activities. We provide at least four intensive pull-out Chinese lessons for NCS pupils per week. With a 1 to 1-3 teacher-pupil ratio, NCS pupils learn the vocabulary and meaning of the text and improve vocabulary, reading and writing skills more effectively. After-school lessons enable NCS pupils to complete their homework at school as well as learning Chinese through playing games, reading stories and singing songs.
      • Curriculum Tailoring and Adaptation The school-based curriculum and learning activities are designed through teacher co-planning, which caters for students' diverse learning needs.
      • Home-School Co-operation We have a strong liaison with parents and our large parent volunteer team actively assists in the daily operation of our school and activities. We have a very good communication network with parents through various media, such as school newsletter, PTA newsletter, websites and parent network. The PTA also assists the school in supervising students' welfare and commercial activities.
      • School Ethos Our school is concerned about the development of moral education of our pupils as well as their talents and potentials. The Discipline and Counselling Teams have designed a framework for teaching our pupils Value Education. The Extra-curricular Activity Team arranges activities and competitions to cultivate the caring and admiring culture among our pupils, so that pupils learn self-management skills and build up an energetic perspective to life. Pupils learn to respect teachers and parents. They work well with classmates and are supportive to one another, and learn to be grateful for things they have.
      • School Development Plan Our school aims at developing school-based curricula for Chinese, English, Maths and G.S. We strive to develop electronic learning among the pupils, as well as enhancing interactions in the lessons. Pupils of similar abilities are grouped for enhancing learning effectiveness. Differentiated homework is used to cater for pupils' diverse learning needs. We frequently arrange different platforms for pupils to showcase their physical and aesthetical skills and potential. We also aim at broadening parents' vision so as to help build up correct attitudes among the pupils according to the directions of development of the school.
      • Teacher Professional Training & Development All the teachers have received professional training qualifications. Based on the school-based requirements, we periodically organize Continuous Professional Development (CPD) seminars and workshops to enhance teachers' professional knowledge and to keep them abreast of the latest advancements in education. We have actively invited assistance from external professional teams to promote the professional knowledge and capabilities of the teachers, so that we can design a better school-based curriculum and support the development of the pupils. In order to promote the effectiveness of teaching and learning, teachers of the same level co-plan lessons every two weeks, and lesson observation and discussion forums are arranged twice a year.
