“Learn actively and co-construct knowledge with one another.”
Our school has redesigned the curriculum from the 6 modules in Liberal Studies and the 29 modules in Life and Society to develop a concept-based curriculum plan. Through reorganising the order of the modules, our curriculum emphasises the importance of cross modular teaching and learning so as to facilitate students to systematically integrate generic skills relevant to this subject.
When teaching certain topics, debate competitions or youth forums are held during lessons. Students are divided into the affirmative and opposition teams (for debate competition) or different stakeholders (for youth forms) respectively to weigh in on different social issues. These learning activities increase students’ interaction and engagement during lessons, providing them opportunities to develop their critical thinking, collaboration and communication skills.
Senior form students are required to keep an ‘error logbook’ to analyse and generalise their own common mistakes so that they can sharpen their learning skills and stretch their abilities. As for junior form students, they need to complete a “follow-up and reflection worksheet” after each assessment to develop their self-reflection skills. Through analysing their own weaknesses, students can reflect on their studying methods for future improvements.
The Liberal Studies Department has provided cross-curricular learning opportunities for junior form students to learn in an inquiry-based approach by visiting different places. With specific topics, students need to break through the traditional subject-based framework and apply knowledge from different subject areas to explore the recent development of the community, Hong Kong and even China.

In order to enrich senior form students’ learning experiences, the Liberal Studies Department arranges different experiential learning activities outside classrooms. Students are given chances to understand the development of Hong Kong in context. Through applying knowledge and experience to the study of Liberal Studies, students can train their critical thinking skills and analyse different situations in society.
