  • Non-Chinese speaking (NCS) Students: 
    • Chinese Language and Putonghua: The school is currently designing and developing a school-based Chinese language curriculum for NCS students. NCS students are not required to take Putonghua lessons, instead, they will be provided Chinese language consolidation training. 
    • Liberal Studies (LS): Following the language policy of the School, the principle medium of instruction of LS is Chinese. English materials would be provided as reference to help NCS students grasp the key concepts. NCS students are strongly recommended to purchase the English version of the textbooks as reference (as stated on the book list).
    • Chinese History: The lack of prior knowledge in Chinese History is the biggest hurdle to NCS students in learning the subject. Therefore, issues would be taught to NCS students in a special way, with reference made to current events so as to facilitate their understanding. Small group teaching for NCS students also makes it easier to teach them the historical timeline through story-telling. 
    • For tests and examinations, a different set of paper will be provided for NCS students in Chinese Language, Chinese History and Liberal Studies.
