Studies in Social Milieu

In today’s ever-changing society, youngsters need to have an awareness and knowledge of social affairs. In “Studies in Social Milieu”, we aim to enhance students’ understanding and attitude towards the social phenomena around them and to help them cultivate personal values and an international outlook. Class discussions and social surveys are conducted in this group to critically examine and provide opportunities to comment on our society. At the same time, students can exercise high-order thinking skills and practice various self-learning skills within authentic social contexts, preparing them for the Liberal Studies in the New Senior Secondary curriculum.

School Facilities

All classrooms and special rooms are installed with computers, overhead projectors, visualizers and air-conditioners. There are additional facilities like the English Centre and iMac Computer Room to assist effective teaching and learning.

IT

FirstClass, a popular intranet system in American schools, has been installed as a network for internal communication. Each student is assigned an account through which information can be exchanged more reliably and efficiently. This service is also extended to interested parents.
