Frequently Asked Questions

1.Q: What are the major renewed emphases (MRE)?
A:
MRE are introduced to better respond to the changing needs of society as reflected in the updated seven learning goals. With reference to their own contexts and stages of development in various curriculum areas, schools should plan the whole-school curriculum with reference to the Secondary Education Curriculum Guide (2017) and the Supplementary Notes to the Secondary Education Curriculum Guide (2017) launched in June 2021 to strategically integrate the following MRE into their school development plans alongside the school priorities for the next three to six years. These MRE include:

 

  • strengthening values education (including moral and civic education, and Basic Law education)
  • reinforcing the learning of Chinese history and Chinese culture
  • extending "Reading to Learn" to "Language across the Curriculum"
  • promoting STEM education and Information Technology in Education
  • fostering an entrepreneurial spirit
  • diversifying life-wide learning experiences (including those for Vocational and Professional Education and Training)
  • stepping up gifted education
  • enhancing the learning and teaching of Chinese as a second language

 

Where necessary and appropriate, schools’ efforts in implementing the MRE should be extended to the senior secondary level.

2.Q: Why are principals required to attend the School Leaders’ Workshop (SLW)?
A:
The SLW aims to enhance schools’ capacity for whole-school curriculum planning and mapping out the future direction for curriculum development. As principals play a crucial role in steering and supporting school curriculum implementation, they are required to attend the SLW.
3.Q: Who should principals nominate for the SLW?
A:
The main objective of the SLW is to deepen schools’ understanding of the ongoing/future directions of the curriculum renewal and provide suggestions on how to incorporate the MRE into the school development plans. Principals may nominate school leaders who direct curriculum planning across Key Learning Areas (KLA) or manage resources in support of curriculum development (e.g. vice-principals, prefects of studies and co-ordinators of values education and STEM education) for the SLW so as to facilitate the implementation of the related recommendations at the school and KLA/subject levels.
4.Q: Can schools make changes to the list of participants and/or preference for workshop events subsequent to the submission of the enrolment form?
A:
Yes. Schools wishing to make such changes should inform the Council and Secondary Section by email ( slw@edb.gov.hk) as soon as possible. However, taking into consideration the enrolments in the SLW, requests for a change of event may not be fully accommodated.
