And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. (IICorinthians 12:9)

Features of the School-based Curriculum

The English Language curriculum framework comprises a set of interlocking components including:

  • subject knowledge and skills, which are expressed in the form of learning targets in the Interpersonal, Knowledge and Experience Strands, as well as learning objectives;
  • generic skills; and
  • positive values and attitudes.

 

The three-year NSS English Language curriculum aims to enable learners to:

  • increase language proficiency for study, work and leisure;
  • develop subject knowledge, generic skills, learning strategies and positive attitudes for lifelong learning; and
  • enhance personal and intellectual development, cultural understanding and global competitiveness in a rapidly changing knowledge-based society.

 

To achieve the aims, appropriate school-based teaching materials are designed to:

  • devise contextualised learning activities to provide a clear, meaningful purpose for using the language;
  • relate the language and the reading and writing components thematically and conceptually to provide opportunities to allow the natural recycling of the language; and
  • focus on the learning and teaching of the four language skills, grammar, communicative functions, vocabulary and text-types through the task-based approach.

Extra-curricular Activities

Extra-curricular activities serve the purposes of adding variety to the English Language curriculum, broadening students’ learning experience and catering for their diverse needs and interests. Holding various extra-curricular activities like Movie Appreciation, English Workshops, English Fun Days, Reading Week, Magazine Publication, etc., we aim to:

·         arouse students’ interest in learning English and develop their language skills;

·         stimulate and encourage students to use English as a medium of communication; and

·         provide an environment in which students can learn to express themselves using English as a tool of communication.

We also encourage students to join various inter-school activities and competitions, including the annual Speech Festival organized by the Hong Kong Schools Music and Speech Association, the Liberal Studies Writing Competition organized by The Standard, the CILTHK Essay Competition organized by The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport Hong Kong, etc., to sharpen their critical thinking and broaden their exposure to boost their confidence in using the language.
