Our students’ needs, abilities, interests and good English proficiency has led to us designing a tailor-made English program for them to develop their English literacy and achieve a high level in English language skills and knowledge acquisition. Research has shown that children’s good command in reading and writing of one language (e.g. English) at an early stage will contribute much to their learning of other subjects in the same language. Therefore, in our curriculum we have taken reading and writing as fundamental to learning the English language and positive generic skills, e.g. critical thinking has been identified as an important skill across English teaching and learning.

The design of our school-based Chinese curriculum focuses on the non-Chinese speaking (NCS) students’ needs and difficulties in learning Chinese. The purpose is to assist them to learn Chinese and Chinese culture confidently, joyfully and effectively. Their Chinese language skills will therefore gradually reach the standard of the mainstream local schools.

P.1 students made lanterns for Mid-Autumn Festival.

The “After-school Homework Tutoring’ scheme is aimed to help students in their daily homework from 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. under the guidance of tutors. The ratio of the class is one teacher to twenty-four students. However, if students are unable to finish their homework within this hour, parents need to ensure that their child completes their homework at home.

Fees: $960 per year.

Good news! Starting from September 2017, the “After-school Homework Tutoring” scheme will be free for all students.

After-School Activities (Monday to Friday 3:45 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.)
Violin, Choir, Guitar, Cello, Flute, Jazz dance, Taekwondo, Cricket, Athletic Training, Roller skating, Volleyball Training

After the examination, our school organise a variety of outdoor learning activities. These activities aim to help our students engage in the community and to improve their understanding of Hong Kong. Additionally, our integration programme also provides students the opportunities to apply their knowledge in a field trip study, so that they will be able to develop and associate what they learnt in daily life.

Every Friday 2:05 p.m. - 3:05 p.m.

Table Tennis Group, Volleyball Group, Master of Ceremony Group, English Drama, Cantonese Learning Group, Creative Art Group, Smart Kids Group, CYC, English Debate Team, Funtastic Group, Chinese Poem, Chinese Group, Development of Exective Skills, Cub Scout, Chinese Phonics, STEM

In order to develop the creative thinking of our students and enhance their interest in science, we organized a STEM ( Science /Technology / Engineering / Mathematics ) group in Multi-intelligence sessions and a Junior Scientists class in the After-school activities this year. Students learnt about Gakken science experiments, mBot educational robot and rocket car. During the computer lessons, P.6 students also experienced new technology like 3D-printing. We hope these activities can help our students to use science and technology in their learning.

In September 2017, we added a new “Mindfulness” course to our “Personal Growth Program”. Research over the past few decades has shown that Mindfulness has many positive effects. It can improve attention and creativity as well as helping to calm children down and give them skills to cope with stress and anxiety. In addition, it can help students to develop social skills and encourage them to be kind and caring.

In September 2017, we implemented a new Thinking Skills Program for P.3-P.6 for the whole academic year.
This program encourages students to develop their creativity and problem solving skills in fresh and innovative ways. Students engage in fun activities and exercises to enable them to process information, make connections, make decisions, and create new ideas. These kinds of “thinking” activities will serve our students well for the future.

  1. Dance Together!
  2. Every day after the first recess, there is a 10-minute “Dance Together” period for students to dance so that they can maintain fitness and have fun.

  3. Fruit Day
  4. “Fruit Day” aims to encourage parents and students to have healthy eating habits and minimize the intake of oily and salty food, and high sugar snacks. We encourage students to eat more fruit and vegetables in order to combat obesity and maintain good health. The “Fruit Day” is held every Tuesday and Thursday. Teachers encourage students to bring fruit to school and eat them during recess as a healthy snack. Class teachers record the percentage of students who bring in fruit and a “High Participation Award” is awarded.

  1. 1 Assignment Guidance
    1. 1.1 Classwork
      1. 1.1.1 Students complete the more difficult assignments in the classroom under the teachers’ guidance and support.
      2. 1.1.2 Generally, teachers should arrange more than 15 minutes classwork and reserve time to check students’ answers.
    2. 1.2 Homework
      1. 1.2.1 Teachers allocate 10 minutes lesson time for students to do homework with a moderate amount of guidance.
      2. 1.2.2 Whenever possible students should complete homework in school.
  2. 2 Timescale for homework items
    1. 2.1 For P.1-P.3 students, their total daily homework should be completed within half an hour.
    2. 2.2 For P.4-6 students, their total daily homework should be completed within an hour.

In order to promote learning, strengthen feedback and improve teaching, most subjects are based on progressive assessment. This is through using daily exercises, classroom performance, and tests as assessment data in order to replace the final examination at the end of each term.
