pandemic. The plan should be included in the departmental plan for the next academic
year.
2. The rise in the number of mental illness case reflects the need of providing mental health
care for students.
3. More efforts should be put into consolidating, refining, developing and promoting the SEN

caring system. The emphasis should be on writing a PLHKS SEN manual, carrying out
staff development and establishing a sound administrative system.
4. Evaluation and further development of the sex education programme is still needed.
Special emphasis will be put on the scope of the programme and effectiveness of the
activities.
5. The “Fellowship growth reward scheme” run by the Student Fellowship needs to be
reviewed.
6. Further cooperation with the Shatin Chapel needs to be explored.
7. For better cultivation of student leaders’ quality, the requirements regarding their personal
conduct should be clearly stated.
8. More effort should be made to help S.1 students adapt to the new school environment.
9. Student leaders should not take up too many posts so as to ensure their good performance.
10. Prefect activities with neighboring schools should be re-established to broaden students’
horizons in the prefect service.
11. Adventure activities which provide prefects with an experiential learning environment and
nurture them in an active mode should be held.
12. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and irregular school arrangements, the handling of
students’ appearance and routines was loose.
13. Because of the massive increase in online classes, students’ abusive use of information
technology has increased.
14. To avoid duplication of work and to improve the effectiveness of the S.1 Orientation Day,
further evaluation, communication and co-operation among departments is necessary.
15. Due to the widespread of the COVID-19 pandemic and the implementation of strict
anti-pandemic measures, a lot of inter-school competitions, extra-curricular activities
and leadership training programmes could not be held as usual. Even though the
online mode was adopted to keep those events going, the effectiveness was far lower
than that of the face-to-face mode. Effort will be made to address this major concern
in the coming academic year, with emphasis on:
(1) Re-starting the work of the Social Service Team
(2) Evaluating and improving the SEN work
(3) Improving the work for safeguarding students’ mental health and work of
preventing students from committing suicide

(7) Feedback on Future Planning
Three major concerns for the school years 2019/20– 2021/22:
(1) Major Concern 1: To strengthen the core values of Christian education with
positive attitudes and virtues
(2) Major Concern 2: To strengthen learning and teaching through different strategies
(3) Major Concern 3: To enhance students’ responsibility and belonging by creating a
caring and positive environment
A number of achievements have been shown in 2020/21, i.e. the second year in the
above-mentioned cycle. Ongoing implementation of the plan in 2021/22 is necessary. We
believe that with the concerted effort of our staff, our school will successfully implement the
plan.
