School Characteristics

School Management

School's Major Concerns:
1. To enhance values education on the basis of core Catholic values; 2. Enhancing STREAM education.

School Management Organisation:
IMC is the supervisory body and the School Executive Committee is the top administrative body of the school, overseeing 12 specialised committees and 8 Key Learning Areas. There are also various work committees and subject committees working in collaboration under the aforesaid committees.

Incorporated Management Committee / School Management Committee / Management Committee:
IMC is comprised of Salesian Fathers, the Principal, teachers, alumni, parents and the public who are enthusiastic about education. They plan and monitor school’s overall policy, finance and personnel deployment.

School Green Policy:
Humanities, Science and Technology have adopted a multi-faceted approach to environmental education, giving students hands on experience in environmental preservation and successfully putting theory into practice. This year, we participated in the "Hang Seng Low-Carbon School Project" funded by Hang Seng Bank, mainly to promote low-carbon living in schools through the installation of solar energy systems and interactive educational workshops.


Learning and Teaching Plan

Whole-school Language Policy:
1. Our medium of instructions policy is based on the students' needs and their English proficiencies. Basically, we adopt Chinese as medium of instruction.
2.To better prepare students for tertiary education, students having good English foundations, will be taught in English for some subjects in senior forms.
3. Students are exposed to an English-rich learning environment throughout their Junior Form studies. 4.The English-rich learning environment helps students to strengthen their English proficiencies and increase the number of students who are capable to learn with English.
5. The school scaffolds students with lower socio-economic status to learn English, so as to ensure equal chances are given to all of our students to fully develop their potentials.

Learning and Teaching Strategies:
Our school is an ordinary grammar boys' school. We strive to provide substantial, interactive, diversified and lively curriculum that aims to cater for the unique needs of boys. Our Senior Secondary curriculum provides a broad spectrum of electives that spans across humanities, science, technology, arts and sports for students to actualize their aspirations and abilities. As for our lessons, we emphasize clear learning outcomes, which are achieved by means of interactive learning activities and regular students’ assessments. Besides, we also provide a summary at the end of every lesson to consolidate learning. In Junior Secondary level, Self-Regulated Learning Scheme is implemented to nurture students to be autonomous learners and enhance their learning motivations. The scheme greatly uplifts students’ participation and initiatives in class through group discussions and pre-lesson tasks. The school is committed to facilitating the development of STEM ) and IT education. To strengthen our students’ problem solving skills, creativity and hands on experiences to solve realistic problems by integrating their skills and knowledge learnt from different subjects, the Mathematics Department, the Science Department, the Computer Department and the Technology Department have jointly organized a cross curricular collaboration in our junior forms known as The STEM Education. With generous donations, the school has setup a STEM Education Centre. With the STEM Education Centre, students can actualize their creativity, sharpen their problem-solving skills and engage in communications, collaborations, logical deductions and investigations.

School-based curriculum:
1. Electives: 2X. Our students may take two electives according to their interests, aptitudes and abilities.
2. Curriculum highlights: Our school is a normal cultural boys school in Hong Kong, students are required to sit for the HKDSE exam. Our school offers students a wide range of subjects: the four core subjects and various electives covering all learning areas. To cater for the individual needs and ensure learning progress of our students with different levels, we adopt a learner-oriented approach with tiered teaching strategy, implemented with collaborative learning and self-regulated learning methodologies.
In addition, we emphasize hands-on experience for our students to assist their learning and boost their confidence. In science lessons, they learn through participating in lab experiments. We hope the sense of achievement gained in science subjects can stimulate their learning interest in other areas.

Development of the Four Key Tasks:
Morning reading sessions are held twice a week. An online reading scheme is adopted to allow students to read whenever they have time, whether they are at home or they are in the campus. This year, we successfully applied for the Quality Education Fund and launched a "Joyful Reading" program, which aims to enhance students' reading by optimizing library equipment, updating and increasing reading resources in the library. We also promote variety reading activities in schools which aims to strengthen students' interest in reading to achieve learning from reading. Structured e-learning materials are put on the online leaning platform for students to further consolidate their learning in Chinese Language or in English Language. There are 146 iPads for teachers and students to use in class.

Life Planning Education:
Our life planning education offers students advice on career, further studies and finding jobs.
It plays a significant role in fostering students’ self-understanding, personal planning, goal setting, reflective habits of mind and articulation to progression pathways. With the help of different disciplines, programmes like “Who am I?”, “Personal Growth diary”, “I want to fly high” and “Understanding various jobs” are organised to help students have a better grasp of their own personality and aptitudes. Coupled with seminars, workshops and first-hand experience through on site observation, students are well informed when they make their choice for their future career.


Student Support

Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity:
We adopt small group teaching and co-teaching so as to enhance classroom interaction, more teaching resources are spent on remedial teaching. With Boarding Education Programme and After-school Nurturing Programme, not only do we help the junior form students with their homework and revision, but also offer them chances to learn to interact with the others through group work. To enrich students' spiritual needs, Catholic priests would do sharing in some occasions.

Whole School Approach to Integrated Education:
Our school adopts a “whole school approach” model to promote integrated education. We establish a learning support team, members include vice-principal, SENCO, SENST, school social workers, student support team and educational psychologist to students with special educational needs. We also arrange teachers to receive integration education training to enhance their professional competence. Our school makes a flexible use of the Learning Support Grant and other school resources to provide diverse support to students with special educational needs, which includes hiring teaching assistants to provide students with comprehensive learning support and social skill training, and outsourced speech therapy services for students in need. We also cater for students’ learning diversity and improve their learning outcomes through the adaptation of curriculum design, diversified teaching strategies, group teaching and homework and test accommodation. Our school also works closely with school-based educational psychologists to conduct regular student assessments and meetings, and invite parents to participate in individual meetings to design concrete, feasible support programs or individual educational plan for students. Furthermore, our school strengthens the staff’s professional knowledge on inclusive education by regularly distributing relevant information and organizing staff development seminars. Our school is committed to building an inclusive culture. We aim at enhancing students’ learning effectiveness and helping them integrate into school life by providing students with appropriate and diverse resources.

Educational Support for Non-Chinese Speaking Students:

Measures to provide adaptation for Learning and Assessment:
In addition to the two examinations and two tests every year, various types of exercises, projects, quizzes and in class activities are also used as a means of assessment to enhance teaching and learning. Formal assessments take into consideration the students’ diversity by the provision of different exam papers and addition of an extension part. Students who attain exceptional level are given A+ as a means of recognition.


Home-School Co-operation and School Ethos

Home-School Co-operation:
The Parent-Teacher Association was founded 29 years ago as a formal channel of communication between families and the school. Its aim is to strengthen the school-parents relationship through the collaboration between the school, students, teachers, and parents. Lots of events have been organized, such as parents’ volunteer service group, educational seminars, teacher appreciation day, field trips and Christmas party. Parent volunteers provide our children with a wealth of activities, events, and resources, which complement the comprehensive education.

School Ethos:
We are like a large family, where students and teachers are bonded by the Christian values and their closeness is conducive to students’ growth and helps students overcome obstacles in learning. We place strong emphasis on establishing a routine for students’ daily life. Apart from their studies, students have ample opportunities to participate in stem activities and various exercise, such as ATS STREAM Club activities, STEM competitions and different ball games.


Future Development

School Development Plan:
1. To enhance value education on the basis of core Catholic values.
We achieve this by various means: a school setting with ornaments of religious significance, talk in the morning assembly and sharing in the class master period. We also provide various opportunities where students can better understand core Catholic values. Besides, a reward scheme Good People, Good Deeds is implemented to instill in students' proper values.
2. Enhancing STREAM education: We always put strong emphasis on training our students as all rounded individuals. In addition to STEM education, two further elements: R “Religion” and A “Art” are added so that STEM is transformed into STREAM. In junior forms, we create a cross curricula STREAM teaching package that enables students to master the skills of different disciplines. It connects their learning with real life situations and enriches their learning experience.

Teacher Professional Training and Development:
Teachers will join the staff development days and enroll courses from the EDB to update their teaching pedagogy. To align with the development needs of the school, many teachers would join STEM and SEN related courses. There are collaboration periods allocated for teachers for pre-lessons preparation and for exchange of ideas.

Life-wide Learning (including Five Essential Learning Experiences to be provided through Key Learning Areas, extra-curricular activities, co-curricular activities, etc.):
There are more than 50 Life-wide learning activities are provided to help the students to gain the five essential learning experiences. They are:

Scholarships can reinforce students’ achievements, they establish students as role-models for others to follow, and they encourage them to continuously improve. To level the playing field, our school also offers various grants to help those students who have financially difficulties. We love our students and we believe that financial issues should not hinder a students’ learning.
