Our curriculum includes Chinese and Putonghua, English, mathematics, general studies, religious education, physical education, music, visual art, computer literacy and library skills. Our life-wide learning programme that works alongside the formal curriculum enables our students to learn through interesting projects, talks and field trips with the aim of achieving a ‘Whole Person Education’. In addition, the School incorporates co-curricular activities (CCA) into normal lessons based on the concept of ‘learning through games’. We strive to develop the multiple intelligences of our pupils.
It is obvious that language learning is more effective if a stimulating and linguistically rich environment can be provided for primary school students. A unique language policy has been adopted in our curriculum. We aim to provide our pupils with an early and enriched English language programme, starting with 25% of our general studies lessons being taught in English at lower primary levels, and gradually increasing it to 75% at upper primary levels. Three full-time native-speaking English teachers are employed to teach English communication skills and organize extracurricular English Workshops. Equally, Putonghua receives due attention. Chinese Language lessons are taught in Putonghua from primary four on, and native-speaking Putonghua teachers are employed to expose our pupils to sound language acquisition habits from an early age.
In various disciplines, as well as music, visual arts, sports and computer literacy education, the School encourages pupils to participate in different kinds of training and competitions in order to gain valuable experience. Small class education is also implemented in Chinese and mathematics to cater for the diverse learning needs of every student.
Additionally, moral education is critical to personal and spiritual development. We focus on nurturing our pupils with an optimistic and positive attitude, and active participation in community service. The School has a counselling team to provide a series of counselling activities in response to the actual needs of pupils and to broaden their horizons.
Our school embraces an all-round education and provides a multi-faceted learning environment for our boys with a variety of co-curricular activities. These activities include tuition in music and speech, ball games, swimming, fencing, journalism, leadership training, community service, educational visits and field trips, reading schemes, topic-learning projects and health enhancement programmes, among others. Through these activities, we strive to stretch our pupils’ potential in different areas, develop their problem-solving skills, exploit the ability to work with others, and build up their self-confidence.
There are many teams and groups: Senior and Junior School Choirs, Instrumental Groups, Sports Teams, Choral Speaking Teams, Service Groups (CYC, Cub Scouts), Student Fellowship, Drama Clubs, and many others
At the beginning of each school year, we promote an ‘Elder Brother Scheme’ for our J.C. 6 pupils and our new J.C. 1 pupils. The J.C. 6 pupils learn to take care of the new J.C. 1 pupils during a designated orientation period. Throughout the year, a student guidance counsellor who serves in our school runs a series of guidance programmes about life education. Our guidance and counselling team works hand in hand with our student guidance counsellor to help the students adopt a positive attitude and provide them with the support they need in maturing into responsible citizens.
