Student Support

(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Students' Diverse Learning Needs 

To cater for diverse individual learner differences, needs and interests, small-class teaching is practiced and a tailor-made course of study is adopted for each group. In addition, with abundant opportunities for cooperative learning and project learning, students are expected to develop both a culture of appreciating others and the virtue of learning from their peers. After-school enhancement programmes and remedial tutorials are provided to help our students progress academically.

 

(2) Curriculum Tailoring and Adaptation for Learning and Assessment 

Within each school year, there are two term examinations and two formal tests to assess the performance of the students. Apart from tests and examinations, continuous assessments such as oral report, qizz and project learning in certain subjects are adopted by teachers.

 

(3) School Facilities

The new school building, adjacent to the Medical Faculty of the University of Hong Kong, is facing Cyberport at the waterfront of the southern part of Hong Kong Island. It is a very tranquil and open environment, matching nature.
