developed, but modification and improvement are still required.
2. A comprehensive mental health programme has to be explored.

caring system. The emphasis should be on writing a PLHKS SEN manual, carrying out
staff development and establishing a sound administrative system.

further development on the whole programme is still needed. Special emphasis will be put
on the scope of the education and effectiveness of the activities.
5. The “Fellowship growth reward scheme” in the Student Fellowship needs to be reviewed.

nurture them in an active mode should be held.

Priority Task 3:
To foster career and life planning education
Achievements
1. The Alumni-Careers Day for S5 achieved a great success again this year. The enthusiasm
and the preparation of the alumni created a very impressive and enlightening event for S5.
Most of the students could benefit from their sharing group sessions of top priorities. The
event could not only help the students explore their career aspirations, but also stimulate
their in-depth reflection on career life planning. Post-activity questionnaire findings were
also very encouraging.

could provide students with exposure opportunities to various workplaces and successfully
met the needs of the target students.

Planning) Club has successfully provided students with in-depth career preparation and
career awareness.

rendering services to the school and equipping themselves through participation.
5. A series of activities organized by the Counselling Department could greatly benefit parents
and students with different needs in a whole-school approach. The education programs, Big
Brothers and Sisters scheme, Sex Education package, social service activities, and
collaboration with NGOs and the Department of Health all helped to implement the theme
of school year.

making well-informed choices.

parents to help their children make well-informed choices.

students in making program choices and provided emotional support as well.
9. The guidance for the operation of the JUPAS application process greatly reduced the stress
of S6 students and helped solve many technical problems. .
10. The hiring of external markers to proofread S6 students’ Jupas self-accounts and additional
information was able to provide practical support and boost students’ confidence.

alternative careers pathways and wider horizons.
12. The guidance of EAPP greatly helped students with alternative pathways other than Jupas.

much commendation. The success story and perseverance of the alumnus was also very
inspirational and encouraging.

changing programs priorities, and also in taking care of students’ emotional needs.
15. The participation of the Careers Department in the school Open Day could enhance the
community’s good impression of our school.
16. The activity ‘Looking at Workplaces’ held in lunch break could attract lots of students to

atmosphere.

working partner and we would work with them very closely for the next S5 Alumni
Careers Day.

demonstrating work-life balance and pursuit of meaning of life.

school.

(a) the collaboration with relevant parties such as the Studies Department and the
Counselling Department and,
(b) the assistance provided to S6 class teachers in the Jupas guidance for their students.
2.10 Careers teachers will continue to find ways of motivating the S6 students, especially the
low-achievers, to face the HKDSE with career life planning in mind.
2.11 The channel used to disseminate careers information to students and staff will be
strengthened, so that all parties can be kept updated about important messages.
