Objectives:

  1. To enhance students’ self-learning abilities.
  2. To increase learners’ positive attitudes towards learning.
  3. To promote STEM learning and application of its knowledge and skills.
  4. To encourage reading across curriculum.

Curriculum:

        All the students have school-based reading and writing lessons with NET teachers. ‘Learning Phonics through Language Arts’ has been integrated into English curriculum for P.1 to P.3. We have also actively participated in different supporting schemes organized by EDB, for example, “seed” project and PEEGs. In the school, students can enjoy themselves in various English activities, which raise their interests in learning.

       For elite students, we provide Cambridge English courses and English Camp to further develop their abilities. For SEN students, we provide different remedial classes in the morning and after school according to their language levels. Students can also join different English extracurricular-activities, which provide them with more opportunities in using language in authentic contexts such as English Drama, Puppetry, Fun English (CUHK), Hong Kong International Youth Forum, English Football Club and English Science Club.
