Liberal Studies

Helping students to develop positive attitudes and values, enabling them to become good persons who can contribute to the betterment of the family, the community, the country, and the world has long been the tradition of our school. The Liberal Studies Department has a deep-rooted conviction to develop and nurture each student to be a humane individual who empathises and lives harmoniously with others, acts impartially and with a sense of responsibility and proportion, exercises effective and responsible decision making skills in this interconnected and ever-changing global community. To accomplish our mission, two curricula are introduced by the Department at the junior and senior secondary levels respectively:

F1-F3: Society Studies (school-based curriculum)

F4-F6: HKDSE Liberal Studies
