The committee includes 15 members from the school sponsoring body, the school teaching staff, the parents, the alumnus and the independent party.
      • School Green Policy School Green Policy: We believe that nurturing the pupils' positive attitude towards environmental education at an early age is very important. Pupils share the responsibility for conserving their environment. They have the opportunity to practise recycling at school through the use of recycling boxes and school-wide recycling containers. There are also solar and wind power devices to generate energy to start the automatic sprinkler system in our roof garden. It helps to save energy and manpower. To let pupils gain a deeper understanding of environmental issues, there are school programmes like collecting aluminum cans, organic planting, no air-conditioning days and lights off campaigns to save energy. The school environmental ambassadors in each class also help implement our School Green Policy.
      • School's Major Concerns 1. To develop teaching with love & care. 2. To develop school as a learning community. 3. To develop potential of our students.
      • Learning & Teaching Strategies In order to cater for the different students' learning styles, we are developing a school based curriculum which will provide students with a variety of learning activities and assessments. The school curriculum also places an emphasis upon students' lifelong learning and critical and exploratory thinking. In order to encourage students in their self study, our teachers are developing interactive teaching materials on the intranet. We wish to foster an investigative spirit and promote high level thinking through the use of interactive study, creative activities and the use of information and communication technology in teaching, together with visits and special subject studies.
      • Development of Key Tasks We facilitate an atmosphere conducive to reading through different programmes: Reading Badges Scheme, Parents-Children Reading Progamme, Morning Reading Section, Big Brothers and Big Sisters Reading Scheme, Parents' Story Telling Time, Good Book Sharing, News Highlight, etc. We place emphasis on Information Technology Education. All teachers meet the IT requirements of the EDB. Using IT makes the learning more interactive and teaching becomes more effective. Computer facilities are also open to students after school and on Saturdays. Students can foster their self-learning by using computers. Through cooperation with the university in the past few years, we have developed a school-based project learning curriculum, so as to enhance the nine generic skills, moral and civic education, personal growth and life education and activities across our curriculum. This is to better facilitate a healthy learning atmosphere which promotes life long learning.
      • Development of Generic Skills Generic skill are fundamental to learning. They are developed through learning and teaching in the context of different subjects and transferable from one learning situation to another. To achieve the goals, teachers adopt different learning and teaching strategies such as high order questioning techniques, discussions, assessments, student lesson preparations, project learning, etc.
      • Whole School Approach to Cater for Student Diversity By establishing the "Intelligence Enrichment Programme", we hope to develop effective teaching and learning strategies to enhance the learning of the more able students. Problem solving and critical thinking are also important areas in students' learning. Using strategies for differentiated instruction to cater for students’ learning diversity.
      • Whole School Approach to Integrated Education Co-teaching classes and after school remedial teaching classes are provided. School social workers hold small group activities to cater their needs. Speech therapist provides training to students and educational psychologist gives assessments to students.
