      • Orientation Activities and Healthy Life The S.1 Orientation Day is held in mid-July. A 2-week Summer Bridging Programme is tailored for pre-S.1 students and takes place in July/August. In addition, the S.1 Class Teachers meet the parents of all new comers during the S.1 Parents Day on the Saturday just before the new school year, and a parenting talk is arranged on the same day. In S.1, students are supported by two guidance programmes. They are "Learning to Learn" and the "Angel Project". The programmes enable students to master the study skills necessary in secondary education and to provide peer support from senior forms for their adaptation to the school life. The school advocates a healthy lifestyle among students through formal curriculum and extracurricular activities on diverse themes. We work closely with the Department of Health to implement the Adolescent Health Programme among S.1 students. A wide range of life skills are introduced in class periods through this programme. The school also collaborates with the YWCA and the Lutheran Cheer-Evergreen Centre to implement the Healthy School Programme, which aims at instilling a positive life attitude and an anti-drug awareness.
    • School Characteristics
      • School Management
        • (1)School's Major Concerns Developing the school into a learning organization to enhance students' learning outcomes and character-building.
        • (2) School Management Organisation: The Principal works together with the School Development Committee to formulate school policies and to review the school performance profile. The two Assistant Principals are responsible for academic and student affairs respectively. The school routines are operated through a committee system. Moreover, students can raise their viewpoints on school policies through the Student Association and Student Council; while parents and alumni can do so through the Parent-Teacher Association and Alumni Association respectively. Important school policies will also be discussed and adopted in Incorporated Management Committee Meetings.
        • (3) Incorporated Management Committee / School Management Committee / Management Committee: The IMC was founded in 2008. The Committee devises school management policies to meet the needs and expectations of different stakeholders.
        • (4) School Green Policy: Energy saving, waste reduction, waste recycling and greening of the campus are adopted as our school green policies. Through the activities organized by the Environmental Conservation Club and the Green Prefects Scheme, students are educated to live out a green life. We also participate in the Environmental Protection Ambassador Scheme, Climate Youth Network and School & Home Energy Saving Scheme, aiming at nurturing a responsible life attitude among students towards the environment, and the awareness of social and global issues related to conservation. This year, we continue to join the "Feed-in Tariff Scheme" of the CLP Hong Kong which supports environmental protection directly through our 33 solar panels to generate electricity. They are also very useful teaching aids in lessons.
      • Learning and Teaching Plan
        • (1) Whole-school Language Policy: English is adopted as the main teaching medium (please refer to the subjects offered in 2019/20 and 2020/21 for details); but we also emphasize the mastery of both English and Chinese languages. Different pedagogical approaches, such as debate and drama, are incorporated into classroom teaching as a means to enhance learning effectiveness. Students are given an opportunity to learn a third language. Japanese is offered in junior forms as an extra-curricular activity, but in senior forms as a formal subject, and students sit the Cambridge International Examination in S.6.
        • (2) Learning and Teaching Strategies: Multiple teaching-learning modes are encouraged. Interactive elements such as web learning, field trips, project work etc. are integrated systematically into formal curriculum with a view to enhancing students’ creativity and expressive power. In junior forms, consolidation in languages and mathematics is made possible through remedial classes. Debate and drama elements are introduced to enrich the learning experiences in language classes. The establishment of the Moodle platform and the usage of iPAD in teaching offer a diversity of resources which promote effective learning experiences for students with different needs. The Language-across-the-Curriculum strategy has been implemented to enhance the language learning effectiveness through the concerted effort of different departments. In senior forms, a diverse curriculum is provided to meet the talents and interests of different students. Apart from the core subjects, students can choose 2 or 3 subjects from 10 electives, together with Japanese and Applied Learning. Students can take other DSE elective subjects through the Tai Po Network.
        • (3) School-based Curriculum: 1. Electives: 2X and 3X. Students are allowed to take any electives among 10 subjects. Some combinations may not be possible because of the limitation of teaching resources. The present offered combinations meet the needs of most students according the past years' statistics.2. Curriculum highlights: The Personal, Social and Humanity Studies in S.1 and S.2 are integrated to form a school-based curriculum - Integrated Humanities. Thematic and macroscopic approaches are adopted as the principles for constructing the course framework. Students are therefore nurtured to develop multi-perspective thinking habits and passion towards the country and the society.
        • (4) Development of Key Tasks: The school aims at cultivating students’ reading habits and widening their scope of reading. All students join the Popular Award Scheme organized by the Hong Kong Professional Teachers’ Union for extensive reading in Chinese and the Hong Kong Public Library Reading Programme for Children and Youth for extensive reading in English. The school, together with the student reading ambassadors, organizes various activities to promote the reading atmosphere. Two Morning Reading Sessions are arranged in every cycle. The intranet learning platform has been set up for providing learning materials to extend students’ learning beyond the classrooms and to cater for the diversity in learning progress. To strengthen the interaction in lessons, iPads and Moodle (school-based online learning platform) have been adapted in teaching both inside and outside the classroom. School-based programmes covering core value elements in the fields of moral, civic, careers, sex, environmental and Christian education are provided by the related specific teams under the co-ordination of the Life Education Committee. The programmes, conducted either in Assemblies and Class Teacher’s Periods or infused into mass activities, aim to address topics of teens' common interests.
        • (5) Career and Life Planning: As one of the first 5 network schools of the CLAP for Youth Project@JC, we work together with the Chinese University of Hong Kong on developing a model for career and life planning. This year, we continue to work closely with the HK Jockey Club Charities Trust and the CUHK as one of the 5 Pilot Schools in developing the "Benchmarks" for Career and Life Planning. The Life Building Scheme, a school-based life planning programme, was introduced in 2006. Students are educated with the capacity in managing their own development through setting goals, formulating action plans and reflecting on their progress. In junior forms, development plans focus on establishing the virtues that we treasure; while in senior forms, formulating the study and career path. Class teachers play the key role in coaching students to realize their developing plans. Students are supported with individual counseling at S.3 and S.5/S.6 – the transition of choosing their electives in senior forms and making their choices for further studies or future careers. Systematic talks on different professions and visits to various workplaces are organized to provide students a broad background for planning the future. Alumni are lined up to give advice to their juniors in planning their studies and careers. With our "Careers and Further Studies Counselling room", more variety of related programmes can be offered to students.
      • Student Support
        • (1) Whole School Approach to Cater for Student Diversity: After-school consolidation programmes in the three core subjects, English, Chinese and Mathematics, are organized in junior forms for better caring of learning diversity. Moreover, at the start of the year, the Guidance Committee organizes the “Learning to Learn Scheme” for S.1 students to establish good learning habits and skills among them. “Be Better than Yourself” is a guidance programme targeting underperforming junior form students, with a view to strengthening their motivation in studies. Students with special educational needs receive support as well. Besides, we offer enrichment classes in specific subjects so as to enhance gifted students' interests towards the subjects and more advanced knowledge.
        • (2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education: Whole-school approach is the principle governing our support for students with Special Educational Needs (SEN). The Student Support Team, led by Special Educational Needs Coordinator, has been established by the Guidance Committee to better support students with SEN. A teaching assistant has been recruited to offer assistance to the team. With a view to adopting the most appropriate and effective strategies in the support programmes, the team is in collaboration with various school committees. These strategies facilitate the differentiation of homework, examinations and teaching curricula, and develop Individual Education Plan for individual student in need. The team also works closely with parents and educational psychologists in order to provide the best support. Moreover, the Learning Support Grant has been employed for the provision of art therapies and speech therapies to students with SEN, and for setting up social groups to enhance their social skills. Educational psychologists from the Education Bureau and outsourced professional team are also ready to provide on-site support. Our school provides candidates with SEN special examination arrangements according to the nature and degree of special needs of the students, such as taking assessments separately, time extension and supervised break. We will also help them apply for the special examination arrangement in the HKDSE. In addition, teachers are nominated to attend regional sharing sessions and courses to equip themselves with the essential qualifications in handling students with special educational needs. What’s more, our school also encourages all teaching staff to participate in various talks and seminars in order to raise the professional knowledge and skills in integrated education.
        • (4) Measures to provide adaptation for Learning and Assessment: Two examinations are held annually, one in each term. Daily performances, such as homework assignments, term tests, study projects, etc., serve as continuous assessments.
      • Home-school Co-operation and School Ethos
        • (1) Home-School Co-operation: The school treasures home-school cooperation, and proactively strengthens the link with parents. In collaboration with the Parent-Teacher Association, parenting talks, workshops and outdoor activities are held focusing on an annual theme. Parents’ voices are welcome through direct contact with the school personnel, in consultative meetings organized by the PTA and through social media. The firmly established home-school partnership facilitates the whole-person development of our students.
        • (2) School Ethos: Holistic education, good conduct and self-discipline are emphasized. A harmonious and studious campus is established by the concerted efforts of teachers and students. We also highly regard leadership development. Students are encouraged to explore their potential through participation in extra-curricular activities and services. Peer support comes from the Student Helpers Scheme and Angel Project, whereby senior level students help their younger schoolmates in the junior classes to adapt to the campus life and review their personal development. The harmonious relationship is also conducive to creating a caring and supportive learning atmosphere within this school.
      • Future Development
        • (1) School Development Plan: 1. To equip students as competent learners in the 21st century. 2. To develop students' leadership traits through character building. 3. To fully explore and develop the potentials of Gifted students.
        • (2) Teacher Professional Training and Development: The Staff Development Committee holds school-based staff development workshops on common issues that cater to the teachers' professional needs. They are also encouraged to attend courses, seminars and training programmes periodically for personal and professional enhancement.
      • Life-wide Learning Activities including Five Essential Learning Experiences, Key Learning Areas, Extra-curricular Activities, Co-curricular Activities, etc. The thirty-plus clubs are broadly categorized as academic, religious, services, interest and sporting. The Student Association co-ordinates with the clubs and approves budgets. Through activities organized by the Club Committees and monitored by their Teacher Advisors, students are able to explore their potential, and so develop their strengths and heighten their civic awareness.
