Our school is one of the four schools established by the Kiangsu Chekiang And Shanghai Residents (H.K.) Association. The school opened in 1978 and is a government aided English secondary school. Adhering to the Association’s educational tradition of ‘Biliteracy and Trilingualism’, the school adopts English as the medium of instruction (MOI) while Putonghua is used as the MOI of Chinese-related subjects. In 1997, the Hong Kong Government launched the language policy of mother-tongue teaching and our school was one of the 100 secondary schools granted the English Medium of Instruction Status. In 2010, the government implemented the policy of fine-tuning the medium of instruction for secondary schools. As throughout the years, the English ability of our Form one intake has met the prerequisites of the MOI fine-tuning policy, our school was permitted to continue to use English as the medium of instruction for all classes.
Over the past four decades, the Association and the Incorporated Management Committee have continuously supported the school. There are remarkable performances in the school management, school ethos, students’ attainment, balanced development in moral, intellectual, physical, social and aesthetic aspects, whole-person education, facilities and resources as well as home-school collaboration.
In view of the need of the New Senior Secondary Academic Structure, the school sponsoring body financed HK$70 million for the school extension project. The opening of the new school extension, Chow Pai Ying Building, in 2016 has increased 30% of the space of our school premises and provides more ideal teaching and learning environment for teachers and students.
