Our students face a unique language environment:

*
Our community is essentially Chinese. We speak, read and write Chinese in our daily life. Government has therefore been promoting the use of Chinese over the years.We have also encouraged teaching and learning in the mother tongue.
*
Hong Kong is an international business, financial and trading centre, and English is the language of business worldwide. To maintain a good standard of English is crucial to our economic competitiveness. Learning of the English language in schools is therefore a Government priority.


Our aim is for our students to be biliterate (ie master written Chinese and English) and trilingual (ie speak fluent Cantonese, Putonghua and English).
