The primary focuses of the junior form curriculum are to develop students' competencies in Chinese, English and Mathematics, and to encourage students to read extensively, write plentifully and always think creatively and analytically.
As an EMI school, our NET as well as local teachers endeavour to provide the best English learning environment and a wide variety of English activities for our students. They adopt all possible means to help students acquire the skills for learning English and EMI subjects, and improve their English proficiency. They also seize every opportunity to enhance students' exposure to other cultures and develop their global vision through different exchange programmes and overseas study tours.
We have also concurrently devised strategies to help raise students' proficiency in Putonghua. Moreover, through all sorts of training provided by different subjects and specialist training rendered by a range of gifted programmes such as the STEM Club, Mathematics Olympiad, Chinese Debate Team and Toastmaster Youth Leadership programme, students’ potential is fully developed, thereby laying the cornerstone for lifelong learning, a crucial skill for 21st century global citizens.
The promotion of STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) in our school aims at developing a solid knowledge base among students and enhancing their interest in STEM-related subjects. Our school-based STEM-for-all curriculum, including the learning of biotechnology, 3D printing, Virtual Reality (VR), mBot as well as Design and Make projects, is designed to nurture students’ creativity, collaboration and problem solving skills. Students can extend their learning through joining enrichment programmes and activities - the Robotics Team, the STEM Club and STEM Day. Students’ great enthusiasm and talents in STEM are evident in their triumphs in STEM-related competitions. They also serve the community by sharing their learning outcomes with students of different schools.
