Features of Curriculum
  • Our curriculum is student-oriented, aimed at equipping students to face the challenges of the 21st century. It focuses on cultivating the ability of self-learning and the spirit of lifelong learning as well as building up positive values and a proactive attitude.
  • It creates varied learning experiences to enhance students’ generic skills and abilities and their mastering of biliteracy and trilingualism. Therefore, they are able to acquire and construct knowledge, building the foundation for their whole-person development.
  • It helps students to find their own interests and potentials, develop and reflect on their personal goals, and picture their paths for further studies and career.
  • It nurtures our students to care about issues that affect individuals, the society and our nation, and thus become citizens who have visions and take up responsibilities.
  • Life-wide Learning WeekEvery year, we organize activities for all S1 to S5 students during the Life-wide Learning Week. The purpose is to allow students to learn through personal experience, to promote active knowledge enquiry, cultivate self-learning and learning interest, develop generic skills, and to increase students’ awareness about the society, the nation and the world.
  • Junior STEM Curriculum (STEM in Education)In courses relating to science, technology and mathematics, we introduce elements of inquiry thinking and hands-on experience to help students establish a solid knowledge base and develop their creativity and abilities in collaboration and problem-solving. Students’ abilities to integrate and apply knowledge are strengthened through interdisciplinary collaboration. So every S3 student must accomplish a Final Year Project and share in groups their research outcomes with peers.
  • S2 Drama Education Course (Drama in Education)The English Department tries its best to cultivate students’ interest in drama. Under the guidance of English teachers and Native English Teachers, students in small groups learn to compose drama scripts, experience the elements of drama and take part in performance training. Through these and activities alike, students’ interest and skills in English dramas are developed.
  • The Multi-Intelligence Education in S4 The curriculum consists of music, visual arts, moral, life planning, etc. We focus on the modes of musicals, appreciation and experience in the first term. A diversified cultures of performing arts and their developments are introduced. In the second term, students are able to choose self-selected courses, so as to develop one’s potential and interest. It is hoped that the self-selected courses help broaden students’ horizons as well as expose them to various learning experiences and nurture multiple intelligence.
