The Catholic Education Office, which has been set up by the Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong, provides support to the school. The IMC and the Supervisor of the school are responsible for monitoring the operation of the school. The Principals and teachers are members of the School Administration Committee, which plans and reviews school policies, as well as enhancing teaching and learning.

To help students foster a more responsible behaviour towards the environment through activities and programmes such as organic farming, recycling and greening.
      • Learning and Teaching Plan
        • (1) Whole-school Language Policy: The school strives to enhance students’ biliterate and trilingual abilities. We adopt small-class teaching in English lessons and allocate extra resources to language teaching so as to create an English-rich campus. To ensure a continuity in the use of English as the medium of instruction, subjects offered in English in Junior Secondary (JS) are still available in English in Senior Secondary (SS).
        • (2) Learning and Teaching Strategies: Our objective is to meet students’ life experiences, cognitive and psychological development. We encourage collaboration, cooperative learning, active learning and the acquisition of thinking and expressing techniques in our classrooms. Our curriculum is designed to unleash students’ potential and cater for learner diversity so that everyone, regardless of their capabilities, has the opportunity to shine. For S.1 and S.2, 5 classes are split into 6 classes to cater for learner diversity and provide support for students' growth and development. As a through-train school, we allow great flexibility in the design of a 12-year school-and-student-centered curriculum. To prepare students for the Senior Liberal Studies Curriculum, we introduce Life and Society as early as S.1. The school places great emphasis on reading. Activities including morning reading periods, book recommendation activities, writer’s talks, newspaper subscription programmes, book-sharing sessions as well as teacher-led reading groups are organised.
        • (3) School-based Curriculum: 1. Electives: 2X. Students choose their electives (out of 8 Senior Secondary elective subjects) based on their personal interests.2.

Students will be supported in making informed decisions based on their interests, abilities and orientations. They will be assisted in managing and adapting to the transition from school to the workplace. The ultimate goal is to get all students, irrespective of their abilities, orientation and levels of studies to understand their own career and academic aspirations; to develop positive attitudes towards work and learning, to connect/integrate aspirations with whole-person development and life-long learning, and to utilise the acquired knowledge, skills and attitudes whenever necessary.
      • Student Support
        • (1) Whole School Approach to Cater for Student Diversity: A Learning Support Committee is in place, implementing plans to cater for students' individual differences. Teaching is done through cooperative learning method to foster students' development of their strengths. Some schemes like a Remedial and Enhancement Scheme, "Individual Education Plans" (IEP), etc. have been set up to facilitate students' whole person development.
        • (2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education: In order to provide comprehensive educational support and build up an inclusive learning culture for students with educational needs, the “Whole School Approach” has been adopted. The school has set up a “Student Support Team”, in which Vice Principals and Educational Psychologists, Social Workers, teacher representatives of all subjects and Teaching Assistants are gathered to offer support to these students. In addition to this, teachers are also encouraged to attend inclusive-education related courses, seminars, experience sharing meetings, as well as taking part in relevant online activities, so as to enhance the professional competency of our teaching team in catering for the needs of students with special educational needs. Our school flexibly utilizes the “Learning Support Grant” to provide a range of diverse support, which comprise employing Counselors and Teaching Assistants, purchasing speech therapy programs, organizing classes to provide training to students with dyslexia and attention deficit disorders. Our school also makes allowance for these students by adjusting homework and exams. We aim at enhancing students’ learning effectiveness through various teaching strategies, designing suitable courses, optimizing teaching through split classes and assigning optimized homework to reinforce their daily learning. In addition to the above, parents are invited to take part in regular meetings organized by the Student Support Team to assess the learning effectiveness of their children, and to formulate suitable learning plans for them in discussion with Educational Psychologists. During the process, parents will be better equipped with the skills on how to care for and instruct their children in an effective way.
        • (3) 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.

To strengthen the communication with non-Chinese speaking parents, the school provides an English version of parents’ letters and simultaneous interpretation of important conferences.
        • (4) Measures to provide adaptation for Learning and Assessment: To reduce the pressure from tests and exams, we emphasise students' continuous effort.
