School Report (SR)
3. A joyful and harmonious atmosphere is precious to school life. More activities such as
games and live music sharing in classrooms could be introduced.
4. The Shatin Chapel plays an indispensable role in supporting the school’s gospel work.
Closer coordination with the Shatin Chapel in this aspect is needed.
5. The follow-up programme for new believers in the online mode should be evaluated.
6. More support to class teachers for conducting the class prayer meeting should be provided.
7. Promotion of the Student Christian Fellowship needs to be strengthened.
8. Student Christian Fellowship committee members should not take up too many posts in
9. Spiritual support for S6 students should be strengthened.
10. In short, the targets of Major Concern 1 are mostly achieved. They will be incorporated as
the major tasks in the coming academic year.
Priority Task 2:
To strengthen the learning and teaching through different strategies
Though it was the last year of the SDP cycle, the influence of the COVID-19 pandemic was still
so eminent that quite a lot of plans were disturbed. In general, half-day face-to-face classes were
conducted in the first term while online classes resumed in the second term. Despite the
adversity, some achievements were made as follows.
1. Promoting independent learning
This year, continuous collaboration was made between the Careers Department and the
Studies Department to provide S.4 students with CLP guidance. In mid-October, goal-setting
and study skills focusing on the four core subjects were introduced to S.4 students. In
February 2022, an online Orientation Day for S.4 students was held. That day, alumni were
invited to share their learning experience in different subjects with the S.4 students. The
students were positive about the arrangement that day. In addition, the S.1 award scheme
started after the 1
UT and ended after the 1
Term Exam.
2. Enhancing students’ interest in learning
Students’ interest was aroused through interesting learning methods such as eLearning. On
Teachers Collaboration Day, some panels, for instance, English, Chemistry and PE,
discussed the use of eLearning to enhance the interest of students in the subjects. Also, in the
lesson observation, colleagues were requested to insert at least one “interesting element” into
their lessons.
3. Catering for learner diversity
Despite the spread of Covid-19, the school strove to cater for learner diversity. To assist
low-achievers to obtain better results, the junior form remedial classes and S1 EMI class
were kept in the form of Zoom lessons. To help the less motivated students, the ASHWC
was kept in the form of an online class. Regarding the Special Enhancement and Remedial
Program (SERP) for the senior forms, most of them were conducted online. As for the high-
achievers, the Youth Leadership Program (YLP), the signature activity of English public
speaking, as well as activities of the Chinese public speaking, would be postponed to late
second term.
School Report (SR)
4. Refreshing teachers with up-to-date teaching pedagogy
At the beginning of the school year, IT training was provided for all on the use of eClass,
PowerLesson and so on. In order to further promote the use of Google tools, training was
provided on the use of Google Classroom. As for promotion of the use of Google Drive, the
IT Department produced a video to introduce the tool and provided assistance for individual
panels or departments in setting up the drive and transferring files to the drive. In addition,
all teaching assistants were trained about how to set Google form and they in return helped
those colleagues in need to acquire the skill. Apart from the above, collaboration between
the Drama panel and the Chinese language panel on Drama in Education was carried out
throughout the year. Furthermore, colleagues were encouraged from time to time to enhance
their professional capacity through participating in professional development programs
(PDP). From the KPM report this year, teachers were positive towards teachers’ professional
development (3.7, highest among 19/20-21/22). Also, the KPM reveals that both students
and teachers were quite positive towards teaching (3.6 and 4.2 respectively, both data are the
highest among 19/20-21/22).
5. STEAM education
STEAM education was mainly promoted by the STEAM committee and the STEAM club,
under the supervision of the vice-principal. One of the achievements of STEAM education
must be the establishment of the STEAM Laboratory, which has become a landmark for
PLHKS. Both short-term and long-term plans were formulated. In the short run, lesson plans
were made and tried out. This experience was part of the teacher training. In the long run, a
school-based STEAM curriculum for S.1 and S.2 would be developed, with focuses on
enhancing Science literacy and problem-solving skills of students. Cross-disciplinary
collaboration was promoted as the above-mentioned lesson plans were the product of the
joint effort among subjects like Science, Design and Technology, Maths and Visual Art.
6. Curriculum review and implementation
In implementing Citizenship and Social Development (CS), the new subject this year, the CS
panel put great effort into studying the curriculum framework provided by the EDB and
enriching the curriculum with appropriate content and interesting activities. PowerPoint
slides and related teaching aids were prepared. Regarding Life and Society in junior forms,
school-based textbooks with suitable chapters adopted from textbooks provided by a
publisher were used. On top of that, school-based learning activities, namely inter-class
forum and project work, were added to the curriculum.
7. Enhancing the academic performance of students
Under the impact of COVID-19, S.6 lessons were completed on a half-day basis. Starting
from January 2022, the epidemic became severe and therefore, most of the supplementary
classes, SERP, drilling before or after the mock exam could only be conducted on ZOOM.
To cater for the needs of those who did not have a good environment for studying, efforts to
keep opening the self-study rooms for S.6 to a limited extent were made.
1. Further promoting independent learning
This year, little work was done in motivating students to do more reflection on learning, i.e.
Assessment as Learning. Good practices from panels should be collected or showcased.
Moreover, reading lessons were cancelled due to the pandemic, which hindered the
promotion of “Reading across the curriculum”. As shown in the stakeholders survey this
School Report (SR)
year, all kinds of stake-holders reflected that reading of students was not satisfactory. The
average scores on “reading leisure-reading materials” given by students and parents are 3.2
and 3.0 respectively, which are the lowest among all items in “views on students’ learning”.
From teachers’ perspective, the score on “students like reading” is 2.8 only. It is again the
lowest among all items in “views on students’ learning”. In brief, more effort in promoting
reading should be put. Different modes, like online mode, should be tried out. Furthermore,
our school enrolled in an activity which promoted entrepreneurial spirit in the second term.
However, it was cancelled due to the pandemic again.
2. Hinderance to catering for learner diversity
As mentioned above, some gifted education activities such as the YLP and Chinese public
speaking were postponed to late second term because of Covid-19. Also, most of the
strategies for catering for learner diversity such as junior form remedial classes, the S.1 EMI
class, the SERP and the ASHWC had to be conducted using Zoom. This unavoidably
undermined the effectiveness of the measures.
3. Limitations on enhancing academic performance of students
Similarly, as most of the measures for enhancing students’ academic performance, such as
the SERP, the mass drilling and the post-mock drilling had to be done using the online mode,
the effectiveness was inevitably diminished.
4. Further equipping teachers
Regarding the use of Google Drive, it is still limited to a small number of panels. Vigorous
effort should be made to further promote the advantages of using Google Drive and related
products like Google Classroom. In the area of eLearning, teachers should be trained to get
used to collecting, marking and returning online homework to students. Teachers should also
be exposed to various pedagogies such as VR and AR.
5. STEAM education
As mentioned above, STEAM education has been developing in a good pace. The long-term
plan of drafting a STEAM curriculum for S.1 and S.2 needs lots of input from colleagues in
different disciplines. In the process, it may be necessary to learn from the experience of other
schools or external institutions.
6. Reviewing the arrangement of “Optimizing the teaching time of the four cores”
After discussion, members of the Studies Department suggested postponing the review to
two years later as the arrangement started this year, and its impact can only be seen after this
cohort has completed.
In short, due to the severe influence of the pandemic, the targets outlined in the second
major concern for the school were partially achieved. More work should be done next
year to enhance the effectiveness of learning and teaching.
