1. The Sponsoring Body
Pentecostal Lam Hon Kwong School was founded by the Kowloon Pentecostal Church in

of her husband, Mr. Lam Hon Kwong.
2. Mission and Vision
The Kowloon Pentecostal Church aims to spread the Gospel through founding schools. Our
school leads students to know the truth as taught in the Bible, and provides education in

morally, intellectually, physically, socially and aesthetically in a balanced manner.
Following the mission of Kowloon Pentecostal Church, the school strives to create an

challenges of the 21st century. We believe that all students are valuable individuals, who are
able to be taught and are able to improve.

4. The school’s current developments
A whole-school self-evaluation is the foundation for our curriculum reforms and current
developments. The process of “Planning-Implementation-Evaluation” has been integrated
into our school development cycle. We conduct the School Self Evaluation (SSE) Day
every year. The SSE is a holistic review of the school and is made with close reference to
the performance indicators. The major strengths and areas for improvement are identified
by means of evidence-based and data-driven evaluation (e.g. with close reference to
teachers’ surveys, stakeholder surveys, Key Performance Measures and the APASO
survey). The School Development Plan and the Annual School Plan are drafted and
amended by teachers. These plans form the blueprint and are the base from which strategies
are formulated and implemented. The school report is written to summarize the school’s
performance in different areas and to review the effectiveness of tasks we have prioritized.
Our school’s recent major developments are listed as follows:

Achievements and Reflections on Major Concerns
Priority Task 1:
To enhance the learning and teaching effectiveness with various strategies
Achievements
1. Enhancing the learning attitude of students: This year, strategies such as assessing
students’ attitude through the learning attitude grade, and issuing top student lists and
improvement lists by subject teachers have been kept. A better learning attitude among
students has prevailed. Moreover, with the addition of the KPC Outstanding Student
Scholarship, together with other scholarships, students are very much encouraged to work
harder.
2. Creating a better learning environment: A better learning environment has been created
this year through the frequent use of Campus TV. Apart from civic education and life
education, Campus TV has been widely used in different areas such as debates, public
speaking, academic award presentations, PTH education, learning-related sharing, and
subject-based study skills, etc.
3. Employing different learning strategies: To improve the learning strategies of students,
general study skills have been introduced to the S.1 students. Furthermore, subject panels
have been encouraged to equip students with subject-based study skills which can help
students master the subject learnt. In addition, S5-S6 after-school mass drilling is another
effective strategy. As seen from the response of students this year, students have adapted to
the drilling. To make the drilling more beneficial, panel heads have been reminded to
provide debriefing to students shortly after the drilling.
4. Catering for learner diversity: Catering for learner diversity has been achieved through
different strategies. For instance, more resources have been allocated to the special
enhancement and remedial program (SERP) to assist both the high and the low achievers to
attain better results in the public examinations. For weaker students, the junior-form
Chinese, English and Maths remedial classes have been offered. For the high-flyers, they
have been encouraged to take part in various kinds of gifted activities. This year, with the
setting up of the Chinese Writing Class, the writing talents of students can be enhanced.
5. Boosting students’ performance: To continue boosting the academic performance of
students, it has become a norm for panel heads to evaluate and formulate strategic plans for
the development of students. The better performance of students can be seen from the
improvement in the results in the HKDSE and SVAIS.
6. Exploring teaching strategies: eLearning in our school has reached a new milestone with
the launching of ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD) in S.1 this year. The overall feedback
 
5
has been very positive. Students’ motivation increased with the use of ipads during lessons.
Teachers were eager to try out eLearning in their lessons. Therefore, the eLearning targets
have been achieved without much difficulty. In addition to S.1, eLearning has also been
adopted in higher forms. The feedback from teachers has also encouraging. In terms of
self-directed learning, this is the second year our school has participated in the ‘Self-
directed Learning in Science’ (SDLS). Both teachers and students have benefitted greatly.
During the project, greater learning satisfaction of students was noted as they were engaged
in self-learning using an enquiry approach.
7. Lesson observation: A new practice on lesson observation has been tried this year. In this
approach, the Principal observes the panel heads while the latter observe their members. In
general, the feedback from teachers was good.
8. Promoting staff development: This year, our school has joined the Teaching and Learning
Expo of 2017. This is the first time for all of our teachers to join the big education event
together. It has broadened the horizons of our teachers and the feedback from them was
positive. In addition, subject-based collaboration has been conducted to further explore
eLearning and STEAM education. Also, talks on crisis management and mindfulness have
been arranged to better equip our teachers.
9. New S.3 subject selection mechanism: A new mechanism for S.3 subject selection has
been adopted this year. In general, both parents and students welcome the new mechanism,
as well as the support given alongside the new mechanism.
Reflections
1. Learning attitude and learning environment: This year, more attention should have been
given to S.1 and S.4. A more concerted effort should have been made with these forms, and
more form meetings called on a needs basis. Regarding awards, the format and number of
awards should be evaluated in future to promote a better learning attitude.
2. eLearning & BYOD: BYOD will continue be launched in both S.1 and S.2 next year.
Furthermore, more discussion and planning should be made in regard to eLearning in
senior forms.
3. Staff development: As the feedback on visiting the Teaching and Learning Expo 2017 was
good, members of the staff development committee have suggested conducting the same
visit once every few years. Also, the subject-based discussion on teaching strategies should
be kept.
4. STEAM education: Despite its sound development in our school, more collaboration
among subjects should be explored to further promote STEAM education.
5. Lesson observations: The newly-adopted lesson observation practice will be kept and
reviewed next year. To enhance effectiveness, lesson observation should focus on a
 
6
specific teaching strategy or the design of a ‘surprise’ for students in the lesson by the
teacher.
6. Evaluation on S.3 subject selection mechanism: In implementing the mechanism, some
undesirable outcomes have been spotted. Therefore, the mechanism should be further
evaluated and revised next year.
7. Evaluation on other issues: Apart from the above, evaluation should also be made on
issues such as senior form lesson time, promotion criteria and the promotion meeting.
8. In brief, most of the targets of Major Concern 1 have been achieved, though there is
still room for improvement.

Feedback on Future Planning
Three major concerns for the school years 2016/17 – 2018/19:
(1) Major Concern 1: To enhance the learning and teaching effectiveness with various
strategies
(2) Major Concern 2: To help students develop a balanced lifestyle and achieve holistic
growth
(3) Major Concern 3: To foster career and life planning education
A number of achievements have been shown in 2017/18, i.e. the second year in the above-
mentioned cycle. Ongoing implementation of the plan in 2018/19 is necessary. We believe
that with the concerted effort of our staff, our school will successfully implement the plan.
