Assignment

Assignment is a valuable part of schooling.  It allows for practicing, extending and consolidating the work done in the class.  Assignment could serve the purposes as below:

  • To extend learning and/or provide practice in applying concepts initially learnt in the classroom.
  • To provide opportunities for independent work.
  • To strengthen concept and skill development.
  • To provide background for forthcoming lessons.
  • To provide opportunities for enrichment.
  • To serve as formative assessment or check for understanding.

Guidelines for assignment

  • Assignment would involve application of knowledge, research and other skills, and would provide experiences that strengthen attitudes and allow for creativity.  
  • Project work, reading, lesson preparation and information collecting are also considered as homework.
  • For junior form students, daily homework would take no longer than one hour to complete for each subject.

Internal Examination

Continuous Assessment: S.1 to S.5

  • In order to monitor the students’ learning outcome and provide information for teachers to review their teaching strategies, assessment activities will be carried out continuously during lessons.  Subject-based continuous assessment would be carried out in both first and second terms.
    First Term: September – December
    Second Term: January – May
  • Students will be well informed by the respective subject teachers the mode of assessment employed, as well as the corresponding weight of scores counted.
  • The Continuous Assessment scores will be converted to 20% – 40% of the subject mark shown in the report card.

Tests and Examinations: S.1 to S.6

  • For S.1 to S.5 students, there are two uniform tests and two examinations: First Term Test (October), First Term Examination (January), Second Term Test (March), and Second Term Examination (June).
  • For S.6 students, there are two examinations: First Term Examination and Mock Examination.
  • After uniform tests, Result Slip will be issued to students. 
  • After examinations, Report Card will be issued to students.

External Examination

Students taking extra subjects in HKDSE

  • Students are allowed to take extra subject(s) / subject(s) not offered in his class in the HKDSE with Principal’s approval.  
  • The students concerned have to sit for the internal examination for the subject(s) concerned.  The marks will not be entered in the Report Card.
  • The Panel Head is responsible for monitoring his progress and will recommend him to continue / terminate the self-study of the particular subject.
  • The Panel Heads would provide the students with the syllabus and brief guidelines, including the format of the papers of the internal examinations.  Marked scripts and answers would be returned to those students after the examinations.
  • No extra lessons would be provided to those students taking extra subjects.

Promotion

There will be promotion meetings for S.1 - S.5 in early July.  All teachers concerned must attend the meeting. The following are the guiding principles and procedures for promotion meetings:

  • Academic performance is a decisive factor for selecting students to repeat.
  • It is also important to choose the ones that will make significant academic improvement if they are given a chance to repeat. 
  • For Junior Forms, students with the poorest academic results are expected to repeat.  However, for S.4 and S.5 students, only students with positive learning attitude at the bottom list are offered the chance to repeat.

I am Smart

Stickers will be rewarded to students who can fulfill both of the following requirements in each month:

  • To submit assigned work punctually.
  • To borrow books from the Library and return books on time.

Three accumulated stickers will result in a good record.
