C. Implementation:


Life and Society (F.1-3 Curriculum)

Junior Form Life and Society provides opportunities for students to explore issues relevant to their living in a wide range of contexts. The coverage includes contemporary issues, media resources in simpler and easier context. It helps students to make connections among different disciplines, examine issues from a variety of perspectives, and construct background knowledge, relevant vocabulary and cultivate their logical thinking and skills in identifying the causal relationship. Meanwhile, project learning and various generic skills are integrated in the curriculum.

The implementation of project learning as one of the four key strategies in the curriculum reform of basic education to help students to achieve the goal of “learning to learn”, has enabled them to develop many skills for conducting enquiries. The open and flexible curriculum framework will be adopted at school as a part of students’ learning experience, thus equipping them with generic skills and helping them to connect knowledge from different fields.

 

Citizenship and Social Development Curriculum (F.4)

We aim to adopt an integrated approach to help students acquire a broad knowledge base and understand contemporary issues that may affect their daily life at personal, community, national and global levels. There are 3 themes for the curriculum, namely, Hong Kong under “One Country, Two Systems”, Our Country since Reform and Opening-up, Interconnectedness and Interdependence of the Contemporary World.

Students would also participate a Mainland study tours in 2022-23 subsidised by the Education Bureau (EDB). Providing Mainland study opportunities for students to gain a first-hand understanding of our country and its development. They are required to conduct project learning for the Mainland study tour.

The curriculum designs helps fostering intellectual ability in general, and develop multiple perspectives that will be of benefit to students in further studies at the tertiary level.
