Dear Parents and Students,

When planning the school's three-year development for 2018-2021, we focused on restructuring the moral education framework and establishing positive education for students. After the 2017/18 Life Education Committee explored different theories and good practices from other schools to see which would be more suitable to the needs of our students, we eventually established the Positive Education Committee in 2018/19. Led by Ms Daisy Leung, together with the representatives from different committees and departments including Christian Education, the Student Growth Committee, the Life and Society Department, the Life Planning Committee, and the Civic Education Committee, its purpose is to design and implement a school-based Positive Education Framework and Curriculum in a cross-disciplinary manner, and it will be implemented in accordance with the schedule below.


  • Re-examine the current implementation by various subjects and committees to evaluate the effectiveness (PIE) of the programme.
  • Design S1 and S4 Positive Education Curricula; arrange manpower, class hours and professional development.
  • Promote Positive Education and related activities in the morning homeroom sessions, at lunchtime, during lessons, and at other relevant times on a trial basis


  • Implement and evaluate the effectiveness of the S1 and S4 Positive Education Curricula.
  • Design S2 and S5 Positive Education Curricula; arrange manpower, class hours and professional development.


  • Implement and evaluate the effectiveness of the S2 and S5 Positive Education Curricula.
  • Design S3 and S6 Positive Education Curricula, arrange manpower, class hours and professional development.


  • Implement and evaluate the effectiveness of the S3 and S6 Positive Education Curricula.
  • Evaluate the whole curriculum and implementation.



In our ever-changing society, we are more certain than ever that establishing positive values can assist us when facing adversity and difficulties, and resolving hatred and diversity. Schools need to help students successfully overcome adversity so that they understand that others may have different views on particular events or situations. But how can they find a way out of a difficult situation with peace and joy? They must learn to handle their emotions properly, regard this as an opportunity for self-challenge, develop their own problem-solving abilities, and seek appropriate support to solve problems.

Our Positive Education framework is based on the concept of forward psychology (PERMA), taught by Martin Seligman in the United States, and incorporates elements of the school's schooling philosophy to design forward education courses, with a modified version as the forward education. The blueprint (PERMAH) is shown in the figure:

It is important to affirm the achievement and dedication of students. Today, I went to watch the final of the Girls’ D1 Basketball Competition. I was deeply impressed with my students’ “never give up’ spirit. Their determination and perseverance demonstrated positive values towards their teammates and everyday life. They competed with extraordinary persistence and courage to challenge themselves and push their potential as far as they could. It is precisely that spirit that we hope to cultivate in our students, along with a love for life and a desire for excellence. I hope that role models such as these can continue to be witnessed in our daily school life.


Best regards,
