Features of our extra-curricular activities
In designing extra-curricular activities, we aim to extend classroom learning and let students have a balanced development on knowledge, ability, attitude and values, so as to realize our objective in education, i.e. education on spiritual, moral, intellectual, physical, social and aesthetic aspects.
Extra-curricular activities in the school can be grouped under five categories, namely academic, sports, music, art, interest and services. There are 22 clubs and societies, 10 sports teams, 12 music groups, 2 uniformed groups and a campus TV station, providing a wide range of extra-curricular activities for students.
In sum, the school’s extra-curricular activities have the following features:
Student oriented —— We believe that students are able to organize and promote activities. By doing so, they enjoy the activities more and develop leadership and acquire the skills necessary in organizing activities. To put the idea of student oriented into practice, a joint council of chairpersons is set up under the Students’ Union to monitor and steer the work of clubs and societies.
Strong Students’ Union —— Our Students’ Union has a long history and a well–established tradition. Each year, senior students take active part in running for a seat on the Union. The Students’ Union organizes school-wide activities such as Charity Week and Post-Exam Activity Day.
Training of leaders —— The Extra-curricular Activity Committee invites experienced social workers to give leadership training to students of different levels with various posts. The purpose is to let student leaders learn theories on leadership and strengthen their confidence, and to practice what they have learned.
Inter-school competitions —— To broaden students’ horizons, the school encourages students to take part in inter-school competitions. Many students take part in such competitions every year and record good results. Take 2014-2015 as an example, students took part in 71 inter-school competitions (involving 490 students).
